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!

Wow! Amazing food, unique creative and yet not too crazy menu selections. Unique "tortilla chips" and seasonings placed on the table to enhance your food. Loved that we could be "outdoors while still indoors" in a patio type setting. We will absolutely go back.

excellent Mexican food, although it tends to the spicy side. If you love spicy, this is your place. Margaritas are also good. Outdoor dining is available

We were there for Taco Tuesday and the music was just unbearably loud. The guy did not need an amplifier. We sat outside to try and get away from it but it still pretty much ruined any conversation. Sol is such a great restaurant and having that kind of loud music just seemed so out of character for a place that has always been so hospitable and with a great atmosphere. We certainly would not go again on a Tuesday unless the music was quietened down significantly.

Nice atmosphere and great patio now that the weather is cooler. The blackberry/ginger margarita was excellent as were the chips and salsa. The fish tacos were not very memorable, the pork carnitas burrito was good. Don't bother with the churros which were fried hard as rock. It was hit and miss.

Terrific experience. The chicken quesadilla was very good, the guacamole the best. My husband liked the carnitas very much. The salsa and chips are top notch. A very enjoyable dining experience

Sadly, no where as good as it used to to.
We fly to Scottsdale every year and Sol was our top dining spot. We were so sad to have had this experience .
The staff were friendly but service was slow
And the food was not what we hav had in the past

The food was outstanding and our server was fantastic. We each had a salad, greens super fresh and protein was plentiful and yummy. Some of best Mexi food around! Noise level was high with customers yet the live music was so very loud that we couldn't converse comfortably and it could have been softer.

One of our favorite mexican food place in the valley. They were having a big party for someone when we were there so the service was quite slow. BUT, all the other times we have been, service was amazing.

Our dinner at SOL was amazing! First of all, the drinks menu is extensive, I had the Froze, loved it! I heartily recommend the SOL guacamole with mangoes and goat cheese, a combination that really works. The grilled sweet corn and fish taco Gobernador (with halibut) were soooo good. This is our third time at SOL and it never disappoints!

Service was poor. Waited for about 10 minutes and no one stopped by our table. Asked a bus person to please bring some waters but they just passed the word. Server that brought our food was put out we asked her to take away dirty dishes. Hmmm. There are lots of other good Mexican restaurants in town...

We have been twice this summer and the inside temp is so hot. Its hard to sit and enjoy your food... They have to fix their AC problem. The food is delicious and service is good.

Restaurant is too hot! Second visit here and now my last. The inside temperature was so off putting that all I could feel was hot and sweaty. This was not an off night either as my last visit was similar. I was not going to go back but thought maybe the first visit a year ago was a fluke. Unfortunately not. Not sure why this is okay. With an open kitchen adding to the overall heat, it is just too unpleasant. Too bad, as both food and service were noteworthy. If you like to be sweaty on your night out, enjoy your experience here. Otherwise stay away. I will

We like the food and the atmosphere. Problem was the service. We were seated quickly and drinks and food were ordered promptly. However, after that we felt we were being rushed out to clear the table for another party. We were not asked about additional drinks (which we were planning on having since we had another hour to kill before our movie) or dessert. In fact, the server brought our check while I was barely halfway through my quesadilla (which was delicious!). Overall we like the food and the place but our server on this night was not a positive part of the night.

It was so hot in the restaurant that our party of 4 became very uncomfortable. Either the AC wasn't working or the AC is woefully undersized for summer conditions. We had chosen this restaurant for our out of town guests because of our previous positive experiences. This time it wasn't pleasant. Never again coming back in the summer.
