Excellent food, drinks and service. Got busier throughout the evening so would definitely recommend booking a table in advance!

We have been a few times before, but this last time wasn't the best.
Initially, we felt like we had been dumped at the worst table in the restaurant, right at entrance doors and away from everybody. It was a high up table for 6 people with high chairs (there was only 2 of us...) and it was drafty and noisy with people coming in and leaving the door open etc, and we could see better tables not being used. It just wasnt the atmosphere we had hoped for.
When our waitress asked if we were ready to order, we said no and asked for a few more minutes, but she took around half an hour to remember us! We were considering leaving when she eventually came back. The food was fine, I wasnt keen on my main but that was my own personal preference. Sides and desert were great. We just felt a bit let down, as there is normally a warmer atmosphere and we just didnt feel it that night.

Our waiter Edward was just great, so friendly and welcoming and just generally a really nice guy, couldn’t fault him - a real credit to the Didsbury team. Food was amazing and came out really quickly even with the tables getting busier. Loved it! Will definitely be going again soon

Came here for birthday treat having visited here on a Saturday afternoon in November. The man who took our drink order was rude and when asked for a recommendation shrugged his shoulders and was very unapproachable . Very little eye contact, made us feel like we were inconveniencing him! Poor body language. Asked for a child’s apple juice and was given something fizzy! Not child friendly. All in all we won’t be returning which is a shame considering we were returning customers.

Visited Solita Many times before, always great food and servers are attentive. Will be going back again for sure!
Only tiny criticism is that there wasn’t a break between the starter and Mains on this occasion; about 4minutes between the courses - just felt a little bit rushed, but this was very minor inconvenience - everything else was 5 star.

Steaks were cooked as requested and were lovely. One of our group had salmon which they said was lovely but they would have liked a sauce with it. Service was good and the Staff were attentive and efficient. Enjoyed our evening and felt it was good value for money. We will be back!

Good food, didn’t have IPA but union lager was fine to quench my thirst before wine. The atmosphere was very buzzy and the music was quite loud...but then I was the oldest mother in the place on mother’s day! Managed to perch on a high stool in the downstairs area so got the full atmosphere. ( last time we went upstairs, which was much quieter).
I really love the fish kebabs and jackets .

The noise level was very high unfortunately! The food was good not great just good. Just to note the ‘cry baby’ wings are just HOT not spicy and you literally can not taste anything. Rib Eye Steak ordered Medium came back Medium/Well Done and the peppercorn sauce was more like a thick gravy. Ordered a Cocktail (their version of a Pin Colada) and had to ask for another shot of Malibu as no way was there a double shot already in it!
Fairly expensive for an American Diner which is what Solita advertises itself as. Over £85 for the two of us. Think you’re paying for the fact it’s in Didsbury more than anything else!

Went with my son and his girlfriend who are regulars. Lovely seafood kebabs, salad and a jacket. Rib eye steak really good. The buttermilk chicken burger was amazing. Deserts too sweet for me but others enjoyed them except for the slightly weird sweet bacon crisp on the ice cream. Only minor critism, I was advised to have the Sauvignon blanc, rather than the house wine as the house wine was a bit sweet. The Sauvignon blan was far more expensive. Maybe a drier house wine would be sensible.

Out of this world amazing food. Tasty served quickly. Very quiet at the time we went but serving staff were attentive polite and speedy. Our first round of drinks took a little while but he apologised when serving them and explained everything ran out on him when he was making them. So all was forgiven!

The food here has always been good but the recent switch from a chilled out grill style to a more modern bar stlye hasn't worked. The atmosphere feels wrong and trying too hard to be trendy. The service also felt rushed like they needed our table. Next time I will deliveroo because I can't fault the food!

Service was really slow.
Waited at least 15 minutes, after drinks been served, for somebody to take our order. Waited at least another 15 minutes before the plate of nachos to share arrived. That wasn't cleared any quicker. I have ordered a tonic water that only arrived after I have re-ordered a second time. Burgers came with the same slow paste and mine was very disappointing. It was very greasey and tasteless, I have ordered a krabbi patty and all I could taste was the greas.....I have ate as at that point I was really hungry and didn't want wait for that long for another dish. Not very good value for the sizes either

Have always wanted to go, especially as they have many vegetarian options. I was disappointed with my jackfruit burger as it was tasteless and smothered in a heavy sauce. I left most of it. The price is expensive for what it is. The waiter was very nice. Would not return in a hurry.

the burgers here were really nice,brilliantly cooked and succultent, and the range of burger choice is good. Also fish is good. However, I wish they did ribs, and the fries are just 'ok' - small portions, and the upgrades expensive (particularly as you are no longer getting the plain fries). Deserts and drinks likewise shade on the expensive side. Great food generally, and great service, however I think a bit of work on portions/value for money would make this a more regular haunt. But I could eat one of their burgers right now, I have to say.
