Mexican
solita is a simple, sophisticated neighborhood Mexican restaurant built around a custom wood grill, inspired by the best of our travels through Baja California and Mexico.

solita’s Mexico is fresh and delicious, simple and light. It’s made from scratch, often carrying a whiff of smoky flavor from the wood or charcoal grill, full of flavor from fresh salsas, corn tortillas, limes, dry and fresh chiles, crushed herbs, fruit and spices, mole sauces and cheeses….

solita brings the fun and authentic flavors of street food to the American table. We may offer some of the same things as other Mexican restaurants, but at solita, the food is just better – better tasting, skillfully cooked, fresher and healthier, with many unique and authentic touches, such as the duros in the chip basket, a salsa made mostly of tomatillos, or a red chile salsa made with Mexican red chiles and a touch of beer.

The best tequila drinks made by Blake. This is the best bartender ever. I was blown away by how great the food tasted. I’ll be back real soon.

The food is very good and service fine. It is noisy and when you are old and don't hear very well conversation can sometimes be difficult.

I have been to Solita many times and keep going back because the food is so good. I had the roasted chicken and it is really tasty, tender and juicy. We took friends that had never been and were very impressed.

It was our first time here and we were blown away not only by the delicious food but the amazing service! The place was packed full of people and the service was still one of the best we have had anywhere. Taco Tuesdays at Solita is the place to go!

Have been coming here for years, food is generally good, not sure what happened but the flavors were off and the service was rock bottom, very disappointing. From check in to the server, just treated like a number, not a guest. I think they forgot its us customers that created their success. Still may try it again down the road but not for a while.

Use to love coming to this place! Ambiance and food is on point! However, the service this last time was a huge opportunity. Our server Devyn was really nice but this what not her night. We had to ask multiple times for silver where, chip refills, And drink refills. We had to send our food back because the order was incorrect. To top off the evening, we were there with another couple and we split the bill down the middle. She charged one card twice and failed to charge the other card. Overall was not a great experience.
Don’t think we will be coming back

The food was delicious, out of the ordinary spicing for Mexican food. Our waitress was gracious and very helpful. The only thing that wasn't perfect was that it was a little noisy for us.

I absolutely love the vampire tacos they are some of the best I have ever had. This is a fun place but the last couple times here the noise level is just so loud it made for a very uncomfortable lunch. We couldn't hear each other talk.

I always love coming here. The restaurant is aptly named, I keep coming back for the tacos and the margaritas (and the elote!) The servers always have good recommendations and the service is great.

Everything was great until the hostess implied we needed to leave because we’d been at our table “too long” and other “people needed to be seated.” We spent over $300 by the way!

So I made a last minute reservation cause we had a movie to catch and wasn’t sure the wait, we walk in and got to our table, started a little rocky our waitress didn’t come by, but other one come and ask if we had order, Rene I think that was her name, she was amazing, took care of us really good, was very helpful and very nice, definitely would go back just to have her as our waitress, food was amazing and drinks.

The furniture is completely worn out, the atmosphere is not really nice anymore, and the high tables really just don't work for this expensively priced place. This is our 3rd visit, and although we think the food is pretty good, we won't likely be back. Also, the reservation didn't really seem to work in our favor, unless we were willing to accept cold, windy, outdoor seating.

The food is excellent and a great value on Taco Tuesday. My only disappointment is that I made a reservation for an outside table and when I arrived I was told that I would have to wait for 15-20 minutes for a table outside but could sit inside immediately. Upon being escorted to an inside table, we declined it as it was too noisy and a high table. They then decided to take us to an outside table (immediately) and there were at least four empty tables. Can't figure what that's all about? Very disappointing that they tried to pawn off a less desirable table when I made a specific reservation.

our grandson loves the patio and we all take turns taking him out to the plaza and fountains...Solita is our favorite...great service, ambiance, menu and quality. Probably the best and most reasonably priced weekend brunch too!

We were disappointed that in our reservation we had written it was a 55th Birthday celebration. There was no acknowledgement of the Birthday. No Birthday candle in the fried ice cream etc. Although the people next to us did have a Birthday candle in their dessert. Even after we mentioned it to our server there was no celebration and a charge for our dessert. We go to Solita a lot, but won’t be back for a Birthday

Best thing on the menu is the elote and the chips y salsa. The beans tasted canned, the rice over cooked and crunchy, the enchilada sauce tasted canned as well.
