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 Server brought my sparkling water glass out with disgusting lipstick all over it! Gross!!! When I asked her to bring me a new bottle of sparkling water after she took the 1/2 filled lipstick water glass away-she did NOT! Really? Seriously? I had to ask her a second time. Ridiculous! The food is overpriced for the stingy portions, and was very bland/unremarkable. Won’t be returning to Solita! Solita pretty much ruined my Mother’s Day dinner!

We had a horrible dining experience; typically we have a good one but this wasn't good at all. The music is WAY too loud and the service was so bad - the restaurant was not even half full.

They lost my reservation. But they did take care of my party. The gentleman at the hostess desk was rude and not friendly.
My friends asked for my table and he was rude to them. The other hostess was so much friendlier.

Excellent service, food and margaritas. This is a more upscale Mexican food restaurant so everything's a few dollars higher.

The only down size is the drinks are heavy on the ice and light on the liquor. Felt a little cheated with my 10 dollar Guava Margarita. The other issue originally went there for the Mazatalan Tacos but discovered the fish they use is catfish. My family is from Mazatalan I can assure you people from there don't use this lower class fish. I ended ordering the chili relleno and it did not dissapoint. My girlfriend ordered the scallops and that was on point. The food was perfect. Hopefully someone from management sees the review... please don't be cheap on the drinks-- need bigger glasses and be more generous on the pour. The cook gets a 10+ but please let's get some higher quality fish on the menu . The next go around i'll order a regular beer the mix drinks don't make the cut for the price.

Solita Tacos is a pretty good place to eat. Some of the food is overly salty though. They serve their margaritas in a goofy tall glass which is annoying. Other than that, ok place to eat.

Unfortunately I have to say this is some of the worst food I have every encountered at a restaurant. I am not please to write this kind of review. Not one of us that finished out meal. I would have thought that the waitress would take notice to of this fact especially when she asked if we wanted boxes to take the food home in. We did have wonderful service, but the quality of the food will stop us from ever returning.

Solita has a unique take on Mexican style food. I have tried several of the dishes offered and have always been pleasantly surprised. Taco Tuesday offers you a great affordable way to sample all of the great tacos Solita offers. For a real treat I recommend the chicken verde

I went to eat here with my lady because she enjoys Mexican food. It took 30 minutes before I received my beer. In addition, we ordered an appetizer (ceviche) which turned out to be disgusting. It was very watery, the fish didn't taste fresh, and had too much lime. We also had no utensils or napkins at our table until we requested them. The waiter was polite but he forgot to bring us a few things. And once we got our entrees, my food was cold, and my girlfriends tacos were not seasoned well.

Great food, friendly service. BUT. The acoustics are terrible and it gets really loud, especially when they have live music. You can't hear a thing.

Also, when I used OpenTable to make a reservation, the reservation went in for 2, when I reserved for 3. As such, I had to wait 30 minutes for a table to open up and it was right next to the live music. AWFUL.

Loved this place!!! After a long, hot day at Magic Mountain we stopped here with three kids in tow (after checking Yelp and confirming that they had space for us) for some good Mexican food and were excited that everyone else was right, the food here was delicious. Even better, our server Irene is easily in the top 5 of servers we've ever had! EVER! She made excellent suggestions, was attentive, but not too attentive, and very pleasant to talk to. PLUS! They had an excellent musician performing today adding to the ambiance of the place. We will definitely be back and suggest you go too, and strongly suggest that you ask for Irene!

P.S. At Irene's suggestion my sweetheart added two beef ribs to his meal, she said they were excellent and she was right. Yum!

It was a birthday outing, my 12 yr. & I have same birthday April 3. I let them know this on my reservation comments. No birthday wish was offered by our server,as at other restaurants. No Ice cream w/ candle? The burrito we ordered was very dry and tortilla a bit hard, we are used to Cafe Rio style which is a freshly made tortilla topped w/ warm red sauce & melted cheese! "Cafe Rio" is directly across the street from your location and a bit less expensive. My enchilada plate was about a 4 on a scale of 1-10. My husband said he would probably not take us back there. The ambiance was nice with the fireplace.

I ordered a steak burrito. The steak was a bit on the bland side and could have used some more seasoning.

Everything else was OK.

Just discovered their Taco Tuesday which is great! Margaritas and Tacos! And the Tacos are amazingly good, yummy, nicely seasoned, PLUS they have live entertainment. The only thing I'd suggest not just for this night but other nights I've been there is that the service not all there. They're not very attentive. They're nice, but it takes quite a while for them to get to you and return with your order. Don't know why, I get a bit of disorg. But overall its quite good. Wish they would have made the bar outside longer. It would have made it a more enjoyable outside lounge with more seating for the bar instead of just 4 chairs
