Best Mexican restaurant in Atlanta?? Probably. We have tried over 20 others and Sol Y Luna comes out #1 – We ate at Sol Y Luna under the old management and it was good already then, we then tried tons of other Mexican places to find out if any of the others could beat Sol Y Luna in tasty foods, yummy margaritas, nice service and good prices. It is our favorite Mexian restaurant we will always come back to, even though we will keep on challenging it to find out if there is a better one in Atlanta.
In short. A great restaurant in every way.
Great Margaritas, Friendliest Service – Dining at Sol Y Luna is like being welcomed into the home of good friends for wonderful margaritas, yummy food, and a great place to sit outside and hang out. Get the pitchers of margaritas - you won't be disappointed. The vegetarian food is excellent, as are their lunch specials and daily specials, which often make for delightful treats. Get their Colombian food when you can! We find ourselves visiting often, always being treated as friends instead of mere customers by Carlos, Consuelo, and the whole staff.
Not yo mama's mexican – Owned by a friendly family of Columbians, Sol y Luna transforms the normal run of the mill Atlantan mexican dining experience (think microwaved combinations) into a explosion of alternative Latin creations and refreshing cocktails. My personal favorite is the chicken mole poblano (breast of chicken is marinated in a chocolate nut sauce, exotic and delicious), but I can confidently recommend the fish tacos, the fajitas, carnitas, and usually the daily specials. They have recently improved their patio by adding an array of flora, making a tropical getaway within Atlanta's perimeter a refreshing reality. I recommend this establishment for a romantic date night, a family dinner, or a night out with friends.
Best Margaritas!!! – Loved this place. I love hanging out on the huge nice patio and chill with some margaritas that by the way are off the chain. The restaurant has authentic tasting Mexican food, they have the best fish tacos and menu overall. The manager and staff are ultra friendly and always greet us with a big smile. Defenitly one of the best mexican restaurants I've ever visited. If you want to have a good time, good food and good service, this is the place to go.
Fantastic place – I went to Sol y Luna Restaurant a couple of weeks ago and it was absolutely aswome the food is great the service is great and how can a forget the delicious margaritas they serve there.I also notice that they have new management and they are fantastic people, very friendly and nice they just make you feel like home .
I highly recommend this Restaurant they also have this beautiful cozy patio were you can go and just relax and have a great time with your family and friends don't miss it you will regret it
Best Margaritas,Great Latinamerican Food – I was in Sol y Luna Restaurant on 08/25/2007 it was a great experience, the margaritas are phenomenal and the food is excellent not forgetting the lovely environment and the beautiful patio they have you just relax and have a great time, the service is top of the line you just feel like in a big family place it was very cool
Best Food, Best Service – This restaurant is my favorite restaurant for cantina-style Latin American cuisine in Atlanta. The food is impeccable -- from the appetizers (the best empanadas I have EVER had) to the desserts (I recommend the house-recipe flan). But what makes Sol y Luna really special -- and what makes them stand out from other restaurants in the area -- is their commitment to service. After two trips, the staff already knew my name and took extra steps to make me feel welcome when I came back. Unlike other Latin American and Mexican restaurants in the area, Sol y Luna doesn't engage in the pretentious "atmosphere" games of the uber-chic -- they are committed to serving fantastic food at great prices with highly personable service. After searching the Highlands, Midtown, Decatur, and Buckhead for the best Latin American cuisine, it is safe to say that my quest ended at Sol y Luna!
Great New Management – The new owners are fabulous but the young staff could do a bit better. Good food, nice location, and nice atmosphere. Go for the Tapas and Tequila!
Might as well go to Publix and heat up your own frozen mexican food – Do not go to this restaurant. The food is HORRIBLE. I ate there on 2 different occasions this year and regret both. I was convinced to go this time by a friend that told me they had were under new management. We were the only table on a busy lunch day - should have told us something - the chips were stale, food clearly microwaved from frozen, and was tastless or too salty.
I have no complaints about the service. The waiter was gracious and prompt.
This place is in a great location and could do really well if they tried.
Worst Experience EVER! RUDE OWNER! – I brought my tennis team with me to Sol Y Luna after tennis practice one night because I had purchased a $25 gift certificate from restaurant com for Sol Y Luna. The ONLY reason we went was because we had the coupon. After waiting 20 minutes to even be acknowledged that we arrived, I showed the waitor the gift certificate and he motioned for the owner. The owner said that it wasn't valid. BUT it had SOL Y LUNA's name and logo on it. He said they would not honor the certificate. Since we were already there and there were 10 of us, we went ahead and ordered. We waited another 45 minutes to get our food. They forgot one of my friends dinners and had to wait another 15 minutes to get her food. And then the food was horrible and overpriced. As we were paying for our meal, I saw a magazine posted at the cashier's counter with coupons for buy one get one free entree's. You would think that if the owner wouldn't honor my gift certificate that I PAID FOR....he would have at least offered the coupons that he was currently HONORING. HOW RUDE....this place is on mine and all my friends BOYCOTT list!
