    We were seated at a booth in the bar area that had the seat fabric peeling apart. We should have asked for a different seat right from the start...

    We had such an amazing experience! Absolutely love how you get bean dip & salsa when you sit down. Their Pineapple Serrano Marg is delicious (add extra serrano) and their entrees are amazing! I think the cost of the specialty tacos is a little expensive for my taste, but they do load you up. All in all I will definitely be coming back.

    I think I have sent one drink back in my entire life, my friend, and I had to send both our drinks back twice. It was very disappointing and they didn’t even bother to pay for one of the drinks. I will not be going back.

    Service was terrible. After an hour and a half of being seated, we all had empty drinks from our first round and appetizers had just arrived. We would’ve loved to order more, but server was stretched thin. Would not recommend this spot for bigger parties.

    This place is trying so hard to be a hip and trendy restaurant in a hip and trendy neighborhood. Result is yes, the atmosphere is hip and trendy, but the food was not all that. I’m never a fan of hip and trendy overriding the food experience. And in a city where hip and trendy taco/tequila places are everywhere, not to mention all of the wonderful mom and pop Mexican restaurants as well, I see no reason to make a second visit. The server was nice, and he was all about the upsell (how about starting with margaritas and guacamole for the table?), but he didn’t push too hard. The chips (really just corn tortillas fried up and put whole into the basket) were tasty enough and the salsa has a nice smoky back note. There was also a nicely flavored black bean dip. My husband and I had taco plates - carne asada for him and pork carnitas for me. I asked for the carnitas to be crisped and they did that. The sides were red rice and black beans. The black beans were decent but the red rice had zero flavor and it was clumpy and lukewarm. Not appetizing at all. The tacos relied on lots of chopped onion and avocado for filler and flavor, though the carnitas and carne asada were both tasty. All in all, better options in and around the Denver metro for solid Mexican food experience.

    The food was excellent. Different than traditional Mexican food. I had the Tortilla Soup and Agave Shrimp taco and both were amazing! We also had the coconut calamari and it was to die for! Highly recommend this restaurant.

    We ate lunch on 12/26. Many families and friends ate out that day in groups of 4 or more. You only had one server for 10 full, large tables. The Manager seemed unaware of what was going on in the restaurant. People were standing in line waiting to be seated and no servers. Many groups left after waiting 30 minutes. You had only 2 servers on the bar side and a private party. I talked to the Mgr and suggested he start turning people away since they couldn't serve them. You were probably short in the kitchen as well. This was horrible scheduling management or servers who didn't bother to show up. The waiter did not charge for our drinks. We waited one hour for our appetizer and another 40 minurtes for our meal. It was unpleasant. I am sorry that no one cares about this restaurant. I had heard it was good. Where was the Main Manager? When I owned a business, if no one showed, I had to go in. Obviously that is not the case with this place.

    The food was very excellent! I was there with four family members two of which must have gluten-free and tried a little bit of everyone else's entree and loved them all. Even the chips and guacamole were better than other Mexican restaurants I've been to.

    Fabulous food and ambiance. They are the BEST for real Mexican food and their chicken tortilla soup is DYNAMITE on flavor and value for the money! They should do a takeout market on the premises and sell their soup to go. The only suggestion for the future would be to include some dessert items, or maybe a churro cinnamon tequila ice cream cake flambed tableside.

    SOL was fantastic. Great atmosphere, alittle loud but didn’t not take away from experience. It was Christmas eve and there was live music so it made sense. The food was incredible!! Everything we tried per our waitress’s recommendations did not disappoint. It was hectic but the outstanding wait staff was attentive, personable and checked in frequently. It was a pleasant experience, 10/10 would recommend.

    We weren’t given napkins or plates or silverware. We had to ask for them long after the chips were gone. It took forever to get a drink from the bar. We were more than halfway through eating and then we were asked how our first few bites were… it was just then my daughter was offered another drink. He drink was long gone before the food came. Before the appetizer even came. It just ruined the meal. To pay $130 for two people and have such bad service…. It’s pretty bad. We live here in the neighborhood and have never had such bad experience here. Don’t feel like rushing back.

    Went to Sol for a date night, and left with a not so great experience. The food was pretty good, the problem was the service/experience. It took like 10 minutes after being seated before we were approached by any server. And when we were, the server just wasn’t very friendly. When we ordered our food, it took a while for our appetizers to come out, and when they did come out, our entrees came about 1 minute after, before we even had a chance to take a bite of our apps. We were at a small two top table, and they didn’t clear any of the empty appetizer plates or empty chips and salsa containers from the table until the very end of the meal, so there wasn’t really any room to set drinks down or just comfortably eat. Anytime the server came bye she just seemed to want to rush us through our meal. Overall, it just wasn’t a good dining experience at all. Food was pretty good, and the atmosphere was a little loud, but pretty cool. But, based on that experience, I would try many of the other great cherry Creek restaurants before coming back to this one.

    Decent food. Disastrous service. While this restaurant has potential, the service resulted in a very low value experience. The food and drink are decent, but the service is the worst I’ve had at a sit down restaurant this year. This is not due to the our treatment by staff, but the lack of attention from staff. Our waitress only came over 5 times (including taking orders to signing the check). This is likely due to not having enough staff and I feel sorry for the staff that are there.

    Great service and they offered a variety of Margaritas to try out. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a Mexican restaurant serve whole fried corn tortillas with their salsa and it made for a unique experience. I was hoping for a authentic meal but it didn’t hit the spot. Unfortunately they didn’t have an option to order a variety of tacos so maybe I didn’t get the meal that appealed to me. Service and atmosphere was great and I’m excited to try again.

    The margaritas left a lot to be desired for the premium price. The glass was filled with ice, the skinny was super sweet and the Cadillac no better than a store bought mixer. The food was slightly better than the drinks, but the tortillas didn’t hold together while eating tacos and overall flavor was a little bland. Our experience fell short of expectations.
