    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!

    They might have been understaffed, but service was ridiculously slow (it took 45 min to get our drinks) and when my shrimp salad came there was chicken In it! I don’t eat meat, so it was very disappointing!

    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.

    Horrible experience. At the entrance both hostess and manager were rude/unprofessional. Talked over me consistent and aggressively. Argued with me over a question as to where I could be seated with my rsvp. When attempting to be seated by pleasant host Aria, he told I could not have the table, then changed his mind. Asked him best form of communication. He could not answer (listen). Told me he needs no coaching, he’s fine.

    Food was good, but service took forever. We waited atleast 30 minutes for drinks and didn’t get the chance to order entrees for atleast 40 minutes. Server was nice but he was so busy that we felt neglected. Service was so slow that a few people from our party went to the nearby store because they were tired of sitting there without food/drinks. My sister also ordered a coffee and when he brought her the coffee, it had fresh lipstick marks on it. We’ve had great experiences at Sol but this experience was pretty terrible.

    Dorian (my apologies if I am misspelling his name) really made our visit at Sol a wonderful experience. Very sweet and attentive young man whose service went above and beyond any of our expectations, I hope you are lucky enough to be seated in his section on your visit. Absolutely amazing customer service and delicious food.

    Great place to dine especially for students and families. We went on Cinco de Mayo so it was very busy and loud. This made it unpleasant for my elderly grandma who has hearing aids so be cautious of that. Overall, would recommend.

    Food was delicious but the service not so good. Our first waitress was very attentive and got our food and drinks very quickly but then they switched and the second waiter literally disappeared until he saw our plates done. I wanted to order another drink but I never found him. Also my regular margarita tasted like watermelon margarita, it didn’t bother me but looks like they use dirty mixer when mixing margaritas

    What I could eat was very good. Cilantro tast like soap to me and it is in just about every dish at Sol. I basically had meat and tortilla. The tortillas are handmade, freah and delicious. The carne asade is great. Their desserts are great, too.

    First - this is an attractive restaurant, with an environment & decorations that tells you the food is Mexican without being run-of-the-mill. The service is just the right amount of friendly and attentive. You will see familiar dishes, but with some Sol-specific spins: half a poblano pepper in the burrito bowl, for example. A dish of borracho (drunken?) beans as well as a mild salsa on the table with "tostadas" (fried tortilla circles) rather than chips. I think my "burrito bowl" (with chicken) was a little dry and could have used a little more spice...but it was tasty and a large serving. The overall experience is very good and the wait staff very accommodating to special requests. Special thanks to our server, Emmily, who made us feel welcome and important.
