Sol Grill Ratings and Reviews
This place is totally unimpressive from the outside. However, the food is quite good. We split three small plates and a salad. All were excellent. Service was very good as well. About 75% occupancy on a Thu at 7PM. Not a lot of seating. In this area of touristy/flashy restaurants, it would be easy to overlook. However, the smaller dining area actually made it quieter. And, if you want something more lively after eating, there's a trendy bar right next door.
Romantic and whimsical atmosphere, awesome and attentive service, and DELICIOUS food! The appetizer filet meatballs are AMAZING... definitely a must. The pitcher of sangria does not short you at all... probably 8 glasses worth. This is my favorite place to go on a date with my husband. :)
Originally had been olanning a dste here for our 6yr anniversary based on stellar reviews and it being close by. The day of the reservation i went to the ER for kidney stones, the woman on the phone was very understanding. I rescheduled for Valentine's day on Open Table. Its the first time we actualy go out to dine for this "holiday" so i was unaware that places have special/condemced menues and different pricing. There were no signed or disclosures that the menu or prices were different than their regular HappyHour (5-7pm) we had a 6:25p reservation. Either way we waited for this date night so it was ok to splurge. We had sangria with check in which was greaaaat! And he had meatballs and i had the cod soup, so dofferent but it works! Like a fish soup but with a tomato base! He then got ribs and i got Newport Linguini. I wish for the soup and pasta we were offered grated cheese, but i will let it pass. It ended up being regular price, which i am ok eith because they haid their full menu and the food was amazin and everything i hoped for and it was the cutest little olace ever! Romantic and cozy enough for valentines day and catching up on a work day!
Sol is consistently a quality dinning experience. I have been many times and highly recommend. Their Coipino is my go to and never disappoints. My special lady recently tried the chicken alfredo which was delicious and good size portion. I always get a pitcher of their hand crafted sangria as well. Book reservations, I have tried to walk in before and was not seated. Don't let that happen to you.
Came here for my birthday dinner with family. Restaurant is very small...so not good for groups, but excellent food and appetizers. One major turn-off was when our waitress, Adriana, (who we had offered a *taste* of our champagne we brought) poured herself an entire glass of champagne. Not cool. When a customer allows you to taste the wine or champagne they brought, you pour yourself a minimal amount. Not an entire glass. Otherwise, above average experience.
Sol Grill is probably my most favorite restaurant in Orange County! Fabulous ambiance with little candles, cozy dining area and all around friendliness by wait staff. When there's a birthday the whole restaurant sings and claps. Everyone seems so happy to be there.
Wonderful food with selections for all personalities and tastes. Love this place.
Marisa was our server. So kind and welcoming--it was our first visit. We started with their meatballs--AMAZING!!!!! My husband had the ribs which were fall off the bone tender and I had the lobster ravioli which had lobster in every bite!!!! The sangria was great! We can't wait to go back!
Service was great. Food was good--good choices, well prepared. However, the restaurant is small, probably seats no more than 30 people The night our family of five was there to celebrate a birthday, a group of eight men arrived shortly after we had and proceeded to yell, shout from one end of their table to the other throughout the evening. The five of us could not even hear one another speak. There was music playing in the background--we could not hear it and it just added to the noise level on this occasion. We walked out with headaches and stress and really had not had the opportunity to converse.
We LOVE this restaurant and are thrilled we live around the corner as it is our favorite place to take friends. Every meal we have ever eaten there (which is a LOT) has been outstanding. The cozy ambiance makes you feel very warm and welcome. We highly recommend it to others!
