I was delighted with my experience at Sol De Mexico...until I got an email from Open Table complaining that I didn't show up for my reservation.

I most certainly did keep the reservation. And my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch; the food was terrific.

Sol De Mexico needs to be more organized about managing their booking, though.

We hadn't been to Sol de Mexico in a long time but we found the food still as good as ever. We don't get into the city very often but it's worth the trip when we are craving gourmet Mexican food. We both ordered the poblano peppers stuffed with pork and topped with walnut sauce.
Excellent!

Small place, great food. It was a bit too warm inside but that's my only "complaint". Definitely would come back and would recommend.

The food was outstanding. Not your typical tacos and burritos menu, which is what we were looking for. Authentic Mexican cuisine with a flare. The real bummer was the poor service. We were there on Mother's Day in the late afternoon, but it wasn't extremely crowded to have warranted such poor service. The server goofed on our order, so half the table ate first, then the other half ate about 30 minutes later. This isn't even the poor service I was referring to (mistakes happen and the server did bring out an additional appetizer for those that were waiting - she did feel bad). The bad service was the failure to refill drinks and check on our table throughout our meal. We had to constantly ask her as she was passing by for drinks, etc. You would think after they messed up our order they would double their efforts to make sure our water/drinks were filled! I really hope our experience was a fluke because their food was delicious. Nothing hurts a business more than terrible service.

We've visited SDM once before and the food is outstanding. The service was adequate and the food price was a too much considering you have to pay extra for table salsa. The habanero salsa is very good and spicy but not for the $2 per ounce they serve. Salsa should be complimentary considering your spending $20 or more on entrees and $10 or more on apps.
This last time we went on Valentines Day and the service was very slow. I will say the people who work there are extremely nice and pleasant, it's almost hard to get mad them for taking forever everytime we had a request. My wife wanted more salsa and by the time the server brought to us we were signing the check.
My recommendation is to go on off night and enjoy the delicious food, but be prepared to pay little extra for the little extras.

The food was deliciously flavored and service and drinks great. the only thing I would fault is the food came out sort of warm, not hot, and there were very few people in the restaurant, so it shouldn't have been sitting for very long. The appetizer platter is fantastic!
