Fresh food and delicious! Quick and friendly service. Patio was small but ok for a party of three and with a kid and a dog. I look forward to trying them again.

I love the atmosphere, the colors, the furniture. It's a very noisy place but very Latino. It feels like being in Puerto Rico, Colombia or a Latin America country, on vacations. The lemonade is great and the dishes are healthy and delicious.

This place has delicious food and friendly service. There was a line up (because the food is so amazing!) but it moved quickly. We are outside in their patio. Awesome place!

We came here at noon on a Saturday right before Dominican University's Graduation Ceremony ended and by the time we sat down the line was out the door... ALL worth it. We've been coming here since 2012 and overall it is: A place where you can experience culture and diversity. Food is amazing. With conversations flourishing from every chair it... More

Sol serves Puerto Rican food with a vengeance! It's menu offers pork, chicken, and sea food (shrimp, etc.) dishes with some vegetarian dishes as well. Beef is on the sandwich menu, I believe, but we didn't have it. The sandwiches are generous and delicious; the dinner plates (small or large) are wonderful. Dinner plates include entree, rice, a great fresh... More

Initially, I was a bit skeptical about the hype of this place - both from online reviews and the line out the door when I drove by. That said, SOL Food more than overdelivered on both accounts and I found a new favorite restaurant in Marin! The food was interesting and delicious - as well as pretty reasonably-priced. On the...

Line up to place your order, find a seat to share with others and waiter brings your food. Had the fried pork chop which was served with a green salad, beans and fried banana. Very casual lively place. There are bottles of water and bottles of some kind of vinegar/chili sauce on every table. All good!
