Mexican
Solita is a simple, sophisticated neighborhood Mexican restaurant built around a custom wood grill. It is 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. All is fresh and healthy, and skillfully cooked. Many unique and authentic touches are added to the menu items, such as the duros in the chip basket, a salsa made mostly of tomatillos, slices of radish with the onions, and red chile salsa made with Mexican red chiles and a touch of beer!

The service was AMAZING! We got sat right away which was great. We didn't sit waiting for someone to greet us for too long, despite our server being busy at the time. Their coworkers stepped up and made it a point to get us water, chips and salsa, and drinks. The food came out fast and everything was great, but the soup was a little cold. We will definitely be coming back soon!

For being outside this was a great location and excellent food. Very enjoyable.
They may need a few more heaters to keep clients warm, but other than that it was perfect!

I know this would have been 5star !! All my reservations were canceled due to the COVID-19. I have mixed feelings. If you can go to this restaurant let me know because I’m on Maui .

We love this place, and their COVID patio seating is so nice that it lets you feel like everything is normal. The staff is so friendly and the food is excellent. This has been basically the only place we’ve eaten out at since March and that’s okay because we’ve always had a great experience.

Great food and good service! Drinks were a little slow but the bar was backed up so we weren’t bothered. Server was really nice and served us quickly. Good COVID adaptations as well. Outdoor dining space is pretty spread out and felt relatively safe and comfortable without sacrificing the experience of the restaurant.

Unfortunately the Host Staff at this location paid no attention to my reservation made thru Open Table. The restaurant was over crowded with parties of 10+ at some tables. There was not enough distance between guests.
I noted specifics ..like it was a Date then they wanted to seat us between a crying baby and a table of 12 incredibly loud women.
I requested a High Top on the Main Patio which was very available when I made my reservation. The next choice for seating was not covered, no heaters and fully exposed to the 55° weather. My reservation was for 7:15 and we checked in on time - we didn't get a table until almost 8:00. The host team were lost, confused and Nobody stepped up to help.

Celebrated my birthday with family. It’s a different approach to typical Mexican food...more upscale and unique and very delicious. They have expanded patio dining and the place was full on a balmy Monday night. Highly recommended!

Food quality was poor, they need to check on quality control with their chef. chicken was dry, steak dish was overcooked despite asking for medium rare- it came out well done, flavors were ok. not worth coming here. My son's burrito was average according to him. presentation looks good but execution is poor. The service was good- the waitress was pleasant and checked on us. that's the only reason this place deserves a 2 stars- manager came to check on us which is good but someone needs to check on the quality control of their product.

The restaurant was busy and short staffed. Asked for several things over the course of dinner, and they were either forgotten or brought out so late, I didn't need them any more. We have eaten here many times, but this was just unorganized causing poor service. The food did not taste as good as it usually does either

The waiters/waitresses, and servers were hustling and moving to keep things clean and tend to customers promptly but almost felt like they were short staffed. Staff can only do the best they can with resources available. Should consider staffing up since socially that is all we can do restaurants should focus on making the best experience given the circumstances.

Solitas has always had great food, reasonably priced.

I was very impressed with how they were handling the virus efficiently and in good cheer.

I came at a busy time, yet my server was on top of my needs and had a friendly and lovely personality.

Extremely safe situation here with going out to eat during this time. This is only our 2nd time out at a restaurant and the employees did such a great job of spacing every table out and following all the safety protocols. Thank you for the experience!

They are doing a great job with COVID. They have converted outdoor patio space from an adjacent restaurant that is no longer in business. It allows for outdoor dining with plenty of space between the tables. The wait staff is beyond excellent. They were a mask and a face shield at all times for customer protection. And while eating at a restaurant during COVID is enough to make anyone nervous, and the watermelon margaritas are worth it!!!

Always great food. Only advice is to serve coffee or tea. Was surprised that this was something I could not order with my dessert.
