    Unfortunately, the show we wanted to see across the street was unexpectedly canceled. We decided to have dinner at Bar Solita anyway, hoping to salvage a disappointing evening. We had a reservation for 6:00. The hostess seated us upstairs in a dark room away from windows and any ambiance although there were plenty of tables downstairs. My friend ordered a Cosmopolitan and she couldn’t drink it because it tasted bad. We ordered 4 tapas appetizers that were fine, but it was more like bar food. ….nothing special! Very pricy for the food and experience. Will not return.

    Poor service; staff poorly trained; mediocre food. There's nothing going for this restaurant except for the ambience and location. First of all, when we entered the restaurant, there was a sign that a 20% tip will be included in the bill "to celebrate Father's Day." Whaat? I do normally give 20%, but to make it mandatory for a party of TWO, because "it's Father's Day," is not just preposterous but also outrageous. So, okay, that was a bad introduction. The food came and there was no cutlery on the table, so we had to get up and hunt for it ourselves elsewhere after several attempts to catch our server's attention. Before that, we asked the busboy who happened to be clearing the next table to kindly bring us the missing cutlery. His response was unexpected -- i.e. that it was not his job, instead of "let me find your waitress," which is what a well-trained staff would have responded. As to the quality of the food, my shrimp and grits was swimming in soupy sauce; my sister's huevos rancheros was mediocre. Our coffee arrived much, much later despite our request to serve it first. This was such a letdown for a restaurant with good ambience and location. It should match the service and food, but sadly not and I won't be a repeat customer.

    Brunch for Father’s Day was our first visit here! We arrived at the open, 15 min early, and were seated immediately. A few biscuits were our choice for an ‘app’, and they were excellent - split and toasted too, great texture and taste all around. Our group had an omelet w fruit and side of sausage; huevos rancheros; steak and egg burrito; and shared breakfast empanadas. The food was served quickly and was hot, fresh and delicious. The empanadas had a soft pastry, which was different and yummy, there were 2, would’ve been too small for an entree for us:) my huevos had great texture added with crispy fried tortillas below, egg cooked as asked, and the crumbled chorizo I thought had great flavor, some spice, and not fatty. The portions were on the smaller side IMO, but we were ok w that. Our server was great, and I noted great eye contact - when we thanked her at the end, she told us it was her first day! The 2 young men, one who expo’d the food to us, and the second who bussed the table, were polite and just fab. We will be back - and hope that management will give some attention to the bathrooms (ps down a flight of stairs). Ladies room’s stainless steel looked smudged unclean and there was a broken toilet seat, kind of felt like it wasn’t prioritized for cleaning.

    Food and drinks were great, but we had a reservation weeks in advance for our large party and everyone waited 10+ minutes for each drink they ordered, and the food was brought out at drastically different times. In addition, at least 3 of our water glasses had not been washed and had full on lipstick smears and lip marks on them. Disappointing from bar solita since we love this place

    I enjoyed my time at bar solita. However, it was unfortunate that the table next to where we sat added two more seats to the side, allowing the customer’s head to be right above our food and drinks. Overall the pasta was ok and desert was good.

    This is definitely somewhere to have brunch drinks. I’m not sure that I’d order food here if I came back. The restaurant so cute, which makes it a decent experience….but the food is mid. I ordered Huevos Rancheros. It was just okay flavor wise & served luke warm. My partner ordered the tres leches pancakes—they were terrible. They had a pungent sour aftertaste that prompted me to spit it out. We sent those back immediately. The server tried to tell us they tasted that way because of a siracha sauce, but we wasn’t having it. My partner ordered the chicken wings (pretty safe option) but they were mid too. Kinda salty and kinda dry. We did enjoy our drinks and sitting in a cute place getting tipsy was nice.

    Our server, Quinn, was excellent; he checked back with us regularly and made sure we had everything we needed. Cinnamon bun is a must - more like a cinnamon cake! Our only disappointment was having the mimosa flights removed from the menu, but, they still offer pitchers of mimosas

    My wife and I came for a pre theater lunch. The first thing we noticed was the incredible noise level. Music of an intense bass rhythm was playing constantly and that was added to by the very loud noise of the other diners. The servers were very good but somewhat overwhelmed. The food quality was very good, but my wife noticed food on the bench where she was seated. We will definitely make another choice before our next theater date.

    Hi, we had a great server and wonderful food. However, we had planned to be in the wine nook, but had made arraignments to move to the upper level for a graduation dinner, for more privacy. When we arrived, we were seated downstairs where it was loud and cramped. While I understand there were not a lot of choices and it was graduation, wedding and prom weekend, I should have been notified that our accommodations had been changed. It was frustrating that another large party came in after us and was then usher upstairs. Again, food and service were lovely. Best, Lori Pickford

    This is such a cool spot with an upbeat vibe and beautiful decor. The menu/food was great, the place is perfectly bustling with a noise level where you can converse, the drinks were fabulous and the bar is a showcase but whoa on the service and staff. I would go back only because I understand the staffing situation is difficult at this time but understand, the service, professionalism, and attitude of the staff left a lot to be desired to put it mildly.
