I booked the patio for a work function and the event could not have went better. Lara is the Event Coordinator and everything was set up just as I'd asked. JC was the waiter and his expertise, food/drink selections, and service was flawless. We started with a round of their Margaritas and an assortment of appetizers like Shrimp Taquitos, Chorizo/Mushrooms, Sweetcorn, and Guacamole...a perfect start! We moved a mix of Street Tacos, including Duck Tacos, Short Ribs Tacos, and Carne Asada Tacos, which were the best I've ever had. JC brought us a variety of desserts including Banana Bread Pudding, Blondie "La Guera", Crème Brulee, and Toffee Cake which went well. We wrapped things up with a bottle of Caymus, a few toasts, and a beautiful sunset...SOL is a great place with great people!

Drinks are much better than the food. The free valet parking and view of the marina are wonderful. Interior is getting worn and dated.

Loved the chips and warm bean dip plus two salsas (one is really tasty) that they bring to your table. Large portions for their taco and burrito plates with delicious innovative sides (spicy slaw, quinoa salad, in addition to yummy beans and red rice)...we tried the fish tacos and the carne asada tacos and both were piled high with fresh veggies and were scrumptious! We sat in their enclosed patio right on the water on a beautiful sunny day. Perfect dining experience!

Excellent choice for the family-ages 6 to 71. Happy hour choices we different from normal choices seen at most Mexican restaurants. Definitely want to go back to find some of the other choices. Margaritas were excellent as was special guacamole. Staff gave great service. Had a great view of the marina area. Readily recommend this location.
