My husband and I had lunch at Sol On State Street on Saturday, the food was so good that my son and I went back for dinner on Monday night. We had the beef empanadas as an appetizer which were really good. Our main courses were the Ropa Vieja with black beans, rice and a side of sweet plantains, and... More

I took a friend from out of town here over the weekend. It was miserably hot outside so I thought a nice meal and cold drinks would be a fantastic way to end the day. The restaurant was very stuffy and warm when we entered and it did not improve during our visit. They weren't very busy - maybe 8... More

We went to the state street location. Service very nice. Good beer selection. Casual, nice soundtrack, laidback. Started with the guac and local chips, really good. Mac and cheese with pork was yummy. Blackened tilapia was delish, nice and spicy, and the little hit of avocado and cucumber sauce was a nice treat. Just in town for dinner, but if... More

We came tonight to celebrate our anniversary. If they would've told us it was going to be an hour wait, we would've left right then. However, they didn't say anything, so we waited for an hour and then got our food...and it wasn't even good! After we were there for 30-35 minutes, the manager came over and told us they... More

We went to this restaurant BUT the location on State Street, they said we had a wait so we set at the bar, and ordered a pitcher of Dragonberry Mojitos, the pitcher was filled with mostly ice for $25.00. Finally we received a table after waiting for almost 30min, while tables were sitting unoccupied. We got waited on and from... More

Stopped here for breakfast and was absolutely delighted with the whole experience. Service was outstanding on a busy morning , we were greeted as soon as we walked in and ushered to a lovely spot by the window . Coffee was good and strong - we both had the coffee con leche. I had the veggie omelette with beans that... More

A little too American. I've had Cuban out of state and it was perfect. I'll have to try this place again. I had black bean burger and it was just ok. My husbands black bean soup was like Progresso. But my aunt and uncle had the coconut shrimp and a soup with mushrooms and onion and they loved it. The... More

Let me start by mentioning that we did NOT order food at Sol, so we can not comment on the food. The menu looked like it had some nice options, original for the area. Now, as far as a "rum bar". They offer a drink menu with about a dozen rum drinks... most of which are pretty basic. When I... More
