    We showed up, party of 30, with very short notice straight out of a LMU basketball win. Staff was accommodating and food was good.

    Service was very slow. I took a client to lunch, and it took 45 minutes to get our food. She was about almost an hour late getting back to work. Then the rice and beans were barely warm. We could tell the wait staff were moving as fast they could. It seemed that there was a shortage of workers, which is typical now post pandemic. My food and my client's were both so spicy we had to pick at it. I asked before I ordered about the spice but was told my dish was mildly spicy. It was very spicy. I have been here several times before and enjoyed it.

    Waiter wouldn't seperate our check and she gave me scrambled eggs and for chilequilles and I had to wait awhile for my dish. They forgot to bring it out. Waitress was kind but not attentive to our party. Dragging her heels it felt like. I hope she was just having a bad day.

    it was a birthday celebration. The waiter suggested a dish that I had never tried, grilled octopus. It was excellent, but the portion size was too small. I ordered black beans and rice. The sides weren’t served hot. The excellent service compensated for the disappointed with the food.

    Good location, too busy for lunch for the amount of staff. Slow service. Street tacos and burritos, and guacamole great. Not a fan of cream sauce on quesadillas. Chips good.

    Service was very slow on a light day at 2:45. I ordered fajitas with no bell pepper (allergy) and my girlfriend ordered chicken fajita soup. My fajitas came full of bell pepper and my girlfriend pulled a huge piece of plastic bag out of her soup. No apologies but they did not charge for the soup. Very disappointing experience.

    Hasn’t been to SOL since mid-pandemic and was unsure if it was still capable of the same quality experience as pre-panic. While a little slow at the hostess station getting everyone seated, the experience was exactly as I had hoped. Food was hot, fresh, and delicious. My guest was thrilled with the selection and ended up ordering the Spanish octopus appetizer which he said was perfect. I went with my favorite portobello mushroom taco and was not disappointed. Our server Darion was attentive, prompt, thorough, and very friendly. It was a very satisfying and enjoyable experience.

    The food was amazing! The wait-staff could’ve been more attentive. I also wish that when you make a reservation that you are informed that only outdoor seating is available; it was chilly and windy. I’d totally go back, though. Great cocktails and pork carnitas!

    The food was good & our waiters were good! The staff as far as seating was not helpful, even after several calls to put our tables together. After lunch we went to the bar & were asked to move twice, even though there were plenty of tables, inside & outside the bar, We were made to feel unwelcome.

    The food was great. The wait staff was friendly and awesome. But SOL’s failure to honor our reservation was inexcusable and made this a not happy overall dining experience. We made a reservation on Yelp and specifically requested patio dining. I called SOL beforehand to confirm patio dining. To be fair, the hostess that I spoke with did say in can sometimes take “up to 20-25 minutes” for patio dining but this turned out to be very wrong. We arrived on time. We had to wait almost an hour (55 minutes) to get our table.
