"Not the typical Sonoran Mexican cuisine covered in cheese and grease.
If you're looking for an inspirational and original menu than Sol is your place. Creative, fresh, delicious and healthy selections are found throughout the menu. Blackberry ginger margarita is a nice drink. Handmade without any sugary mixers. The calamari appetizer was different from anything I've ever had - absolutely delicious!
A beautiful interior plus a fun patio to enjoy the cool evenings.
Not sure why restaurants think their guests enjoy a loud environment for dining. Lately we have noticed they are so loud you are shouting to talk at your table. I will say on the night we dined at Sol it was not overly crowded and thereby not too loud. We were able to converse with our guests fairly easily.
A reservation is recommended to dine at the time of your choice.
Enjoy!!"

"The Bloody Mary was pretty good--and I'm picky about Bloody Mary's. The Michaelada was okay.. Huevos Rancheros was amazing and their chips and salsa are salty, crispy, and spicy (all meant positively). The waitress was a little over-eager, but I'm sure some people love that. It was a little pricy for Mexican food but that's the price you pay for being at The Quarter."

"The service was very fast, maybe a little too fast, as our food was just warm. If you're looking for traditional Mexican food, this isn't it. They seem to pride themselves on that, but the results were so-so. It was hard to find the avocado in their signature guacamole, for example, but there was plenty of trendy ingredients. The drinks weren't bad, but clearly the alcoholic parts were very measured. This is really just another chain restaurant with young, cocky wait staff, mediocre food and lines out the door. Next time, I'll be looking for some real food served by wait staff that takes a genuine interest in more than just turning tables over.
P.S. I have to be suspicious about the number of 5-star reviews with very short, one or two line reviews, with no specifics.

"we arrived on time (4:15 pm) and were seated. sat for several minutes while a small group of servers looked at us several times but never came to take an order for drinks or provide any greeting. I finally got up, went to the bartender and ordered drinks for us. I returned to the table with the drinks just as a server was engaging the rest of my party. time elapsed since we arrived was more than 20 minutes by now. reviewed the menu and was very surprised to see that a Mexican restaurant did not have any enchiladas other than goat cheese. the server finally attending to our table advised that the person assigned to our area was late and she was finally asked to look after us. she was very good and did her best to remove our initial impression of SOL. however, we were still extremely disappointed for being ignored for over 20 minutes and not being able to get the chicken enchiladas we had been salivating for. I suggest finding a different Mexican restaurant if looking for good service and typical Mexican food."

"In Phoenix area on business, craving Mexican food. 745 pm reservation for one on a Friday night. Boisterous crowd, suspect many had arrived during happy hour much earlier. Seated promptly, greeted promptly by server. Ordered a margarita, then ordered appetizer (chile gordo) and main (grouper on esquites). Waiting. Waiting. Waiting. Ordered another margarita which arrived about the same time as the app & main did. Bad timing is a pet peeve of mine; the POINT of appetizers is to come before the main, not crowd the table. And while the grouper was tasty, it was the largest piece of fish I have ever been served in my life. Not even close to finishing. And of course the size showed in the price: $42 (perhaps reflecting the scarcity of local grouper in Arizona). All in all, a tasty but very pricy meal that didn't quite hit the mark."

"A couple of friends joined us this visit and they were impressed with their meals as well as the ambiance. Staff were attentive and helpful. We keep coming back for the amazing calamari. This is the best calamari we have ever had, bar none. All the food is good and we purposely oder enough to take home. Food seems to be even better the next day after spending a night in the frig!."
