We've been there 2 X.s on the weekends and they are never open. I believe they are permanently closed.

Everybody is correct. The food is good...when and if it comes! Under prior management this was not a problem. Menus were not brought to the table for 20 minutes. Bring a bottle of white wine, and hey put a mix into it, and it comes out of the kitchen as red sangria, with cubes of apple and no ice. Oh,... More

Went with three others last weekend and what a treat! Hadn't been here in a year or two but it did not dissapoint. I had the guava glazed ribs with the roasted vegetable and gost cheese strudel, both tapas, but more than enough food. The strudel was my appy & the ribs as my entree. Both were outstanding.

We have been to Casa Solar several times and the food is fantastic. The guava ribs are habit forming. They bring out the food when its ready, not necessarily at the same time for all at the table. Plan to share and you will be good. Dessert is great here too.

Although the food is still very good, not being served for three hours is totally unacceptable. Our party had made reservations and arrived at 6:30. The dining room was one quarter full and was staffed by one server and a bus person. We ordered both appetizers and entrees. We did not receive any of our food for two hours! When... More

The food here is sooo good. The ribs are the best thing on the menu. I've been here many times. Plan to spend the evening here- do not have plans after because everything is cooked to order so it is an event. The tapas are fabulous- ribs, churrasquitos, bean dip, wings, empanadas. Try them all- about 3 for 2 people... More

Casa Solar: Do Not Go There! 10/29/11 First off, I will start by saying we have been going to this restaurant for years. The food is great, however, the service has always been slow and spotty. We are prepared for that and don’t mind as we know what to expect and we bring plenty of wine to keep us busy.... More

Ate at Casa Solar this past weekend and I am in agreement with most of the other reviewers. I did read the reviews beforehand and was well aware that the service might be slow, but I didn't think I would be bothered by it. We did wait about 45 minutes before we received our appetizer...an order of empanadas. They were... More

Good Spanish food especially the tapas. The soups are excellent and a meal in its self. Food is all made to order and are very slow coming out. BYOB so bring a lot while you wait. Chef/Owner very defensive to criticism. Needs a customer relationship adjustment.

2 hours to get food??? Had us ther till 10:45 pm... My buddy orders scallops, they bring shrimp and say "they hope that's ok"??? No specials, limited menu, over cooked food and when you complain they get defensive. Would not reccomend this place to anyone, they never heard the phrase "customer is always right" they act like they are doing... More
