Great food fresh and well combined. Good service too. I recommend it. Ambiance is casual but well achieved. The lines of people waiting to eat there sus it all. Enjoy!

We have very few "puertorican" eating spots in the Norther California area in general. This is one of the only 2 I have found that are authentic and excellent. Other so called puertorican eateries are more on the tex-mex side rather than true puertorican cuisine. Sol Food is OUTSTANDING and really authentic. Well... ok... they do a bit of the... More

3.5 stars for the food itself; nothing to complain about there. The line getting into the place took forever though. And the restaurant itself was small, crowded, noisy, and chaotic. By far the worst part, however, was the family seating arrangement where THEY WOULD SEAT PERFECT STRANGERS AT YOUR TABLE which had enough chairs for 6 people. Sorry, but that... More

Had dinner here on a recent trip west. WOW! Superb food and atmosphere. Everything was fantastic. I wish I had stayed in the area longer because I definitely would have gone back again.

Our take-out was plentiful and tasty, but delivered an hour earlier than the time requested online! A minor problem, really.

The food is really good, but portions can be very stingy/small - especially with to-go orders of rice, beans and soup - and the prices keep going up.

Always hits the spot! The combinations of beans, rice, plantains and the spicy tangy chili sauce is delicious.

The atmosphere makes you feel like you're on vacation. It's no wonder they have people waiting in line out the door. The chicken is terrific, very tender, flavorful. The beans and rice taste amazing together, especially when you add a little of their pique sauce. It's comfort food that is healthy too.

This is the best food in marin for the price. I go here 3-4 times a week. Great, healthy, premium quality food. Service is impeccable even with such high demand and long lines. Avoid going to eat in person at dinner time. Do delivery or pick up. This place is unbeatable. Go for the pollo al horno, bistec or pollo... More
