Excellent food, drinks and service. Got busier throughout the evening so would definitely recommend booking a table in advance!
Lovely friendly atmosphere and staff. Food really good and served at a relaxed pace. Highly recommend
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.
Great place to eat lovely staff very welcoming, great with kids too
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
Service very good, polite and friendly staff. Food nice.
Booked for anniversary and was some of the best food we have had. Service was quick and food was cooked to perfection. Staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend.
We ate here with our grandchildren and had a very good meal. Our waitress was very friendly and professional.
Our first time at Solita. Fabulous menu and the quality was excellent. Great music too.
Will be going again for sure.
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
me and my partner have been to the solitas in prestwich and Manchester many times but we thought we would try didsbury, we were not disappointed the food was far better than both others and the place itself didn’t feel as cramped great place we will definitely be going there from now on
Food was great as always and staff very friendly but we found the service too fast and would have liked more time to enjoy our meal.
Great food great staff lovely atmosphere, Good choice from menu the Splits mess is to die for.
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!
Too quick. Starters mains and out in about 40 mins. Slow down !!
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 staff were brilliant and very accommodating with us and our 5 year old son. A very friendly restaurant with great food.
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!
Fabulous food friendly staff. Nice relaxing evening. We didn’t feel rushed and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere.
Fab food and service. Chicken wings very tasty as well as the burger. Look forward to returning
Great food, great service and our waiter Edward was superb even though he clearly had a lot to do on a busy Saturday night.
Staff were lovely, very helpful and attentive! Food was amazing particularly the cheese burger spring rolls and the deep fried cookie dough!!
Always go to splits for birthdays and other gatherings and am never disappointed!
Fantastic food and brilliant staff. I took my daughter for her 14th birthday celebration and she wants to return already just 2 days after. So does her brother lol Edward the waiter that looked after us at the time of our visit was brilliant well done Ed your a credit to the restaurant. We will defo be returning thanks.
Food was very tasty, huge portions, Ed who served us was great
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.
Fantastic restaurant that has excellent food and friendly staff. We went for New Year and went back tonight for our son's 10th birthday. Food was outstanding as usual and service exceptional!! No complaints at all! We will be back soon!
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
Food was overpriced and didnt have much taste. Did not live up to expectations
Have had several lovely meals at this restaurant and so decided to celebrate my birthday here woth the family and wasn’t disappointed!!! Lovely restaurant!! lovely service and value for money 💰
Fab place, easy to book a table, great atmosphere, great service and delicious food :)
Amazing food for a great price. Very relaxing we’ll be returning soon
Food arrived quickly and was excellent. The service came with a smile and the staff wete pleasent. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and food.
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.
Amazing food and service, by far the best burger place in Manchester.
Cocktails were really nice. I hve been solitas before and really enjoyed it. However, this time round the food was not fantastic.
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.
