Love the appetizer menu and the margaritas. Lunch and dinner are always delicious and they would fix it if not. We have always had great service. Love the bar! Chips and salsa delicious. Fish very good including Calamari side.

Fantastic food, great margarita. ben was a nice waiter. Overall it was a perfect (one day late) Valentines dinner. Only suggestion - note which items on the menu are vegetarian. It would make it easier to order. Otherwise it's perfect. Thank you. I will be back.

We had great food, drink and service. Our server was Israel - we've eaten here before when he was our server so we knew he would take care of us - and he did! We eat here almost every time we are in the area and have never been disappointed. My husband tried the chicken quesadilla for the first time and was said it was just so-so … nothing too exciting. The other items were SO good! We requested outside seating since the weather was nice and it's usually pretty noisy inside. Easier to visit when sitting away from the kitchen.

Food was outstanding. Unique and flavorful. Our waitress was very helpful in selecting and pairing items. Have the Naked Guacamole. The Churro for desert was a great way to top off a great meal.

We have eaten at Sol Cocina many times and it never disappoints. Jason, the GM, is always cordial and the staff is very efficient and attentive to customers. This is a great restaurant and one that we like to bring friends from out of town to eat.

We went for Valentines dinner. So I guess it was date night. First time there. Host was friendly. Servers knew the menu well and their margaritas are to die for. My only comment is… It would’ve been nice to have piece of toast with the shrimp appetizer to mop up the bit of sauce left in the pan. We will definitely go back.

We had a delightful evening. We ordered partially from the very reasonable and yummy happy hour menu, and... goat cheese enchiladas, because- why not?!?? Everything was great. I would come again for sure. If you like super spicy salsa, the habanero salsa was amazing and they were super generous.

The food was really great, interesting and authentic. Only complaint was the one member of our party that ordered tacos was disappointed - they were underwhelming.

This was our second visit to this restaurant and another exceptional dinner. The service was outstanding and the food was superb. The house made guacamole is a must.

Service slow to start but then the mains arrived within five minutes of ordering, usually not a good sign. Food was dry and little taste, obviously pre made so explains how it came out so fast. They seem to have gone to a lower price point to bring in people but for those more focused on the quality of the food I would give this a pass or be warned.

Nice get together, great food... service a little slow considering it wasn’t all that busy. Tables too small in the bar area. Between water glasses and carat of water, the appetizer plates, silverware/napkin roll ups, large menus, and chips etc. PLUS your cocktails, so crowded one of our cocktails got knocked over. Had to clear the whole table and regroup. Accidents happen but could have been prevented with more room. There was a party of 4...

Very good and will go back. Had the steak burrito and it was very good. My only input is that there was not enough red sauce so the burrito was too dry for me. For an extra $2.50 for red sauce, there should be more so it’s not so dry.

We always enjoy ourselves at Sol. The chips and salsa/bean dip are the best and I cannot stop eating once I start. Our group had assorted tacos and burritos and enjoyed every bite. Our server, Beto, was amazing and took very good care of us. We will be coming back.

Our overall dining experience was pleasant. There were four in our party and after ordering, the server (Lorena) returned telling us the restaurant was out of two of the ordered entrees. Re-orders were placed and although the items were acceptable, they weren't outstanding. The guacamole was very good, as well as the corn dipping chips. The fish tacos were marginal and the coleslaw was very spicy. The quinoa was delicious. The value for the final bill was just not there.

Location is great. Food is ok. You can have Mexican / Latin food for much less in Scottsdale that is just as good or better. Service was friendly but took a long time for drinks and one order was incorrect when the main course arrived. Will be back but definitely not a favorite.

We had a great night at Sol. Have been MANY time but this time was very special. Our friends were recently married & wanted a fun but low cost spot to celebrate before their honeymoon. All extremely happy. Great food, service, ambiance & more!
