    My first-time trying SOL Mexican Cocona, and I truly enjoyed it. It was for lunch, so it wasn't too crowded, but the hostess was very pleasant, and the staff were very nice. I think it was the manager, who came around a couple of times to check on our table, and she even brought us more chips/salsa when we asked! The food was delicious and just the right size, not too little, not too much! I will definitely be back with my family and friends!

    I had a group of 16 and the service was flawless for a party this size. We were able to order upon arrival… no need to have a prix-fixed menu arranged in advance. Ordered a skinny, spicy margarita with muddled jalepeno and a tahine rim… fantastic! Highly recommend.

    Valentine's Dinner with the family. Food was great, drinks were strong, busy evening but overall a very happy celebration. CJ was always happy to assist with anything. The duck taco was amazing and the churro dessert was the perfect ending with 2 glasses of champagne. All in all, a great evening.

    Jose and the hosts were awesome! Drinks took a lot longer than they should have. The food (shrimp and corn salad) wasn’t very good: a huge pile of arugula, some kind of sauce with literally 15 kernels of corn and 10 tiny shrimp. It can only get better.

    My reservation was for 7:45, and they seated us at 8:10 only because I pushed. They were refusing to seat us until the kitchen"caught up". The appetizers, chips and salsa were better than the actual entrees. Our server was avoidant the whole night. She would pass by, make eye contact and keep walking by. But when we would say we needed something or asked another server for help, she would magically pop by. I never had that experience here before. It was quite disappointing.

    Delicious food options for adults & kids. Hearty meals and tasty apps The margaritas are very tasty! We didn't realize there was a live singer on Friday nights. The music selections and performers were really good but we didn't anticipate sitting right in front of them with a bigger party of 8 people. We did wait for 2 of our entrees to come out after everything else had been served. We also had a few small requests - side of radishes, extra chips - that took multiple requests to receive. The restaurant was busy but nothing too crazy for a Friday night We have enjoyed our time at Sol for past visits and will definitely return again.

    We go almost every Sunday for brunch and almost every time we need to send our food back. They just can’t seem to make an egg over easy. Yesterday was the last time for us. Too bad we love coming here, but not when our food has to be returned to be done over and over.

    On 1/26/24 I made 4:30 reservations online for a Birthday Party of 12 people. Under special requirements I wrote "requesting the large room." This was confirmed by text and email @ 1:46, #279250. Some b/d guest already arrived and were seated @ a very crowded, uncomfortable table not suited for 12. The host and manager refused to seat us in a room. The managers said sometimes people give a deposit & they can't guarantee a room with OpenTable. I said I made the reservations in plenty of time and the confirmation email and text did not specify we were getting a large table. I suggested the website needed improvement & clarification. The manager gave us complimentary guacamole/corn. I thanked her but still felt mistreated. I urge you to clarify you website so this does not happen to anyone else. Thank you.

    The food and the drinks were amazing! I have been to sol many times and have always had exceptional service. However, last night service was extremely disappointing considering we were celebrating a birthday. It took a long time for the server to get our drink and food order. She was not on top of getting us a second round that we had to order through another server who was so pleasant and even picked up dirty dishes off our table. I asked our server to clear the table so we could enjoy the cake and even that did not happen. She brought us plates and asked us what else we needed, well silverware would be helpful. Overall she was a terrible waitress and really made our experience fall short.

    We were thrilled they were able to accommodate us (group of 7), but were understaffed so meals took way longer including 3 kids meals we ordered when we sat down. The fire alarm went off and was going for a good 10 minutes too.

    We were very disappointed. The rice was under cooked and hard, the beans had little flavor. the sauce tasted like it came from a bottle or can & not fresh, fish was bot fresh and the waiter didn't check on us or give us water as much as they should. Food was more pricey then it should be for the quality, of the food and the amount served. The first visit to your Playa Del Rey restaurant and for a birthday meal was not good. The only thing we really thought was great about dinner was the manager which was very attentive & kind.

    The shortrib barbacoa is delicious! The goat cheese enchiladas were good but spicy. The viper taco was good but very glad the waitress warned it was spicy and had the salsa on the side! Soup was good and large portion. Portions were all good for price except the special tacos. Overall though prices are high.

    Made a reservation for standard seating, and the only table they had available was in the bar area, right near the main path in and out of the restaurant. So it was cold, noisy, and busy. Overall a VERY unpleasant dining experience. Which is a shame because the food is good. Don't accept a reservation for standard seating and then stick me in an area that a. I didn't reserve, and b. is a very unpleasant place to sit. Not sure I will return to this restaurant. Also, they had a pretty ridiculous live music guitar playing situation. You could barely hear it, and it wasn't remotely Mexican music. Honestly, could not at all figure out what they were going for. The restaurant is part of a chain here in Socal. They've been in that location for more than 5 years. Figure out the seating. Don't take reservations for tables you don't have available. And maybe book someone who plays music that goes along with the theme of the restaurant.

    The food and drink were outstanding, especially the cucumber jalapeño margarita. But the noise level was unacceptably loud, even in the heated patio. I might do takeout from here but will not return and will not recommend it to friends because of the excessive loud music.

    If the restaurant serves smaller portions the price point could go down and customers would be excited to try a variety of dishes. This would bring customers to return more frequently. The price point is too high and dishes are too large for one person. The chips are a bit awkward to eat, too large. However, the flavor fulfills the craving. There are better ways to stand out amongst other competitors. The restaurant itself is attractive. Maybe adjust the portions to be more cost affective. There are waterfront restaurants with a lower price point with the same or greater quality. The staff was professional and timely. This is my honest feedback.
