The wait staff was friendly and awesome. But SOL’s failure to honor our reservation was inexcusable and made this a not happy overall dining experience. We made a reservation on Yelp and specifically requested patio dining. I called SOL beforehand to confirm patio dining. To be fair, the hostess that I spoke with did say in can sometimes take “up to 20-25 minutes” for patio dining but this turned out to be very wrong. We arrived on time. We had to wait almost an hour (55 minutes) to get our table.

At the entrance both hostess and manager were rude/unprofessional. Talked over me consistent and aggressively. Argued with me over a question as to where I could be seated with my rsvp. When attempting to be seated by pleasant host Aria, he told I could not have the table, then changed his mind. Asked him best form of communication. He could not answer (listen). Told me he needs no coaching, he’s fine.

We waited atleast 30 minutes for drinks and didn’t get the chance to order entrees for atleast 40 minutes. Server was nice but he was so busy that we felt neglected. Service was so slow that a few people from our party went to the nearby store because they were tired of sitting there without food/drinks. My sister also ordered a coffee and when he brought her the coffee, it had fresh lipstick marks on it. We’ve had great experiences at Sol but this experience was pretty terrible.

We went on Cinco de Mayo so it was very busy and loud. This made it unpleasant for my elderly grandma who has hearing aids so be cautious of that. Overall, would recommend.

Our first waitress was very attentive and got our food and drinks very quickly but then they switched and the second waiter literally disappeared until he saw our plates done. I wanted to order another drink but I never found him. Also my regular margarita tasted like watermelon margarita, it didn’t bother me but looks like they use dirty mixer when mixing margaritas

Cilantro tast like soap to me and it is in just about every dish at Sol. I basically had meat and tortilla. The tortillas are handmade, freah and delicious. The carne asade is great. Their desserts are great, too.

The service is just the right amount of friendly and attentive. You will see familiar dishes, but with some Sol-specific spins: half a poblano pepper in the burrito bowl, for example. A dish of borracho (drunken?) beans as well as a mild salsa on the table with "tostadas" (fried tortilla circles) rather than chips. I think my "burrito bowl" (with chicken) was a little dry and could have used a little more spice...but it was tasty and a large serving. The overall experience is very good and the wait staff very accommodating to special requests. Special thanks to our server, Emmily, who made us feel welcome and important.

There was a group of ladies who were extremely loud as the entered the restaurant who were ultimately seated at the table behind us. These ladies together with the loud music we were unable to effectively communicate amongst ourselves in our party makiing our birthday celebration a disappointment. Upon exiting the parking structure we learned the gate was up and the validation and $2 payment was unnecessary. Another disappointment that better commuication or even a sign could have prevented.

The appetizers are amazing. We had the naked guac and the grilled sweet corn, freshly cut off the cob tableside. The tortilla chips and black bean salsa are REALLY good too. Wonderful first impression for the tastebuds. I can write for my own review and I loved the CDMX Quesotaco, the Taco Bufalada, and the Sweet Potato & Black Bean taco. Those three tacos hit the spot. So much so that I forgot to snap the foodie pics. My sisters and parents mentioned they enjoyed their meals as well…the Canarditas Duck tacos, the Shortrib taco, the Bistek taco, and whew….needless to say we’ll be coming back soon! Thanks to the team for the service and hospitality after the initial host took me aback a bit after I just asked him if he was asking about seating my family when he called for the table of 6. But I also understand it was Easter Sunday and it may have been a bit of an extra stressful day. No worries. We loved SOL and we’ll surely be back!

The restaurant is super noisy and difficult to hear one’s own conversations. However the food was very good and I will go back, perhaps for lunch when the restaurant crowd is not so rowdy.

Everything is delicious every time. Crab benidict is truly one of the best in LA, worth going for these alone. Clean, fast service, nice decor, and value is good for the area and upscaled mexican food. Texted when table ready before we checked in.....nice! Note to mgt, Maybe someone called out, but 1 bartender for entire place is inadequate. Still a 5 star.
