Food was fantastic as always however service was poor we waited to be seated even though we had booked when walk ins were just shown to a table

We then waited 25 mins after being seated to receive our drinks

Food service was quick and was amazing

Staff seemed very uninterested when we could easily have spent over £100 had we stayed to have a few more drinks however the service put us off staying

Out of date drinks menu was annoying, as was the fact that the online food menus are also out of date
Food was nice though.

The manager is extremely rude. I asked for a coke and before he left the table changed it to Diet Cole and he was extremely rude and walked away. I have been to this restaurant on many occasions and he is often rude. He is a South American man with black hair and trimmed beard.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a birthday to celebrate and they were great at just bringing out the cake without asking. Food was pretty quick despite them being busy as it was a Friday night and everyone had clear plates.

I have never had problems before but there was a waiter that was so rude. Could not believe how he treated us. I was going to just leave but was with my fiancé and my good friend and his girlfriend. The manager stepped in and gave us a better table but there was no excuse for how this waiter behaved. All we did was ask if we could swap to another table that was free and he was so rude. When I brought to his attention that I thought his attitude stunk he continued to be rude. I felt the manager should have said something to him but looked like he got away with treating us as he wished. We spent £130 in the night and felt the service was appalling, needless to say we did not leave a tip. It’s a shame as this is one of my favourite restaurants to go to but this has seriously put me off going back. I know that the manager would stand by her staff member but I just hope he has had a talking to about this. The managers reaction was “oh he must be busy” really a waiter on a Friday night, you’re joking. Really not happy at all about how we were treated

The lights were out which affected the atmosphere. Would have been nice if they would have let me know. My burger had far too much bbq sauce on it and the onion rings were soggy.

Great food and excellent service. Only negative was that the baby change fold down table is right next to the hand dryer in the disabled loo so it kept going off which really scared my son and made him scream and cry because it kept going off.

Staff were friendly and patient due to my 7 year old's inability to chose what she wanted to drink. Food was amazing and was delivered in a timely manner, even better they delivered my daughters meal with our starters without being asked which we thought was so very helpful.

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.

Food was lovely, the man who brought our food from the kitchen was lovely, but the main waitress was so rude!! Such a let down and won’t be coming again as you don’t expect to be treated that way when you go out for a meal

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!
