A word from Solaia
Named after a famous vineyard in Tuscany, the Solaia bar and restaurant is our answer to the Italian fine dining experience that was missing in Englewood. Serving New York-style fine Italian cuisine, located at the heart of the elegant town of Englewood, Solaia Restaurant is 10 minutes away from NYC and ten steps away from the Bergen Pac Theatre (originally the John Harms Theater). The many faces of Solaia restaurant transform to accommodate the casual shoppers at the outside café as well as the elegant theater- goers with fine northern and southern Italian cuisine prepared by our executive chef.

Diner Reviews
  • "Right next to the Bergen PAC, so you can enjoy a great meal right up to 5 minutes before show time and still be in your seat in time. Excellent food and a decent wine list. Also, enjoy the great art work, prints by the late great Pino who lived not far away."

  • "Whether you're going to the Bergen Pac for a show or just want to get out for dinner, this is a good place to try. The food was very good and portions were ample. The service was excellent and they were very helpful. We started with their Tropical Salad. My husband had a Chicken dish and I decided to have their hamburger platter--without the roll because I couldn't stop myself from eating their bread. One must stop at some point. We did have beer. I don't like most beers. However, their assortment had enough for me to choose from. We go to the Bergen Pac quite often and plan on making this restaurant part of our night out."

  • " Our meal was excellent - seafood/pasta special and braised short ribs that were extremely tender and tasty Caramel cheesecake for dessert was a perfect ending to the meal. Servers were attentive but not hovering. This was my second visit to Solaia and I highly recommend it."

  • "Asked for onions with the salad - Waiter came back 10 min later to ask white or red onions? We said white. - Got the salad - no onions - finally found a waiter - 5 min later he brought red onions - shrimp in sauce was disgusting!!"

  • "Given the menu & price range, I was expecting excellent food & service. I have to say I was not disappointed. In fact, Solaia exceeded my expectations. The food was outstanding. The Caprese salad appetizer was delectable. Beautiful tomatoes w/fresh mozzarella & basil with a mouth-watering oil/balsamic vinegar drizzle. The risotto di mare and short rib entrees were excellent. Both beautifully prepared and delicious, although the risotto was super rich with "possibly" a tad too much butter. Had a nice pinot noir served in a proper red wine glass (thank you!). The Chocolate/mousse cake was good/ok. Good/attentive service & a nice outdoor seating area. Great overall experience including the Gordon Lightfoot concert next door!"

  • "Restaurant wasn't very busy but the service was very slow and tedious. If this was our first time at Solaia we probably wouldn't return but since we eat there all the time we'll just hope things improve next time."

  • "As always we had a terrific meal....we are rarely disappointed and Solaia is our "go to" spot in town."

  • "Do not consider going here before a show at the BergenPac Theatre! Our show was at 7:30 and my party of four arrived at six. We were told it would get crowded so we should order quickly. We immediately gave our order for drinks and dinner, just entree no appetizers. At 6:55 we still had no dinner. I asked the waiter and he said he would check, that it was not his fault. I assume he checked but never came back to us. I asked hostess to see manager shortly after 7 and she said she would tell him. At 7:10 our food arrived, with no apologies, no visit from manager. My filet mignon was medium well at best, not what I ordered but no time to send it back. The only great part of meal was the crisp asparagus. Food was overpriced for sure!"

  • "We have eaten at Solaia a number of times over the last few years. The food has been good in the past, and the service OK. The service was so awful on Thursday night that we will not go back. Our waiter did everything he could, short of cooking the food, to get us served. He told us the menu was not the regular menu, but the menu that the restaurant uses on a show night; an abbreviated menu that the kitchen can handle quickly and efficiently. Well, they can't. The one thing that the waiter and the manager did that was truly extending themselves was to take our Groupon, which (we did not know) they do not accept on a show night. They took it that night, because of the 70 minute wait we had for our dinner."

  • "Had 5:30 reservations so that we would have plenty of time to eat for 7:30 show next door. There was only another table with two people in the dining room. By 6:00 the restaurant was full, 6:30 one entree no longer available. Served our 5 meals at 6:50 with no time to spare to have a cup of coffee! Never again! !"

  • "We enjoyed our dinner very much, air conditioning working well and we were happy to be at Solaia once again. It's our local "go to" spot and we are rarely disappointed."

  • "There is nothing I wouldn't order here. Everything is cooked to perfection and nicely served. I especially love their Chicken Matone (chicken under a brick) a half chicken, completely boned and cooked to perfection--crisp skin and wonderfully juicy chicken. A special sea bass cooked in parchment was fresh and flavorful and perfectly cooked. The restaurant is right next door to the Bergen PAC so if there is an event that night the place is packed."

  • "Right next store to the Bergen PAC so grab a great meal before a show and while dining enjoy the beautiful artwork by Pino, who we unfortunately lost a few years ago. I have been told that Pino did not live far away and that his son still frequents the restaurant."

  • "Service was horrible, but food was great......once they got the order right and finally served it. Only 3 of 4 appetizers came out, 4th delivered after other three wee long finished. THEN only 3 of 4 entree's were delivered, again 4th one was very late. Could never find waiter (Joe) for drinks, and every question about the menu required him to run inside to find an answer. The food was indeed excellent, but until I start seeing reviews about improved service I won't be back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "First time ever we are complaining this much.....the restaurant was very hot and they assured us the air conditioning had been repaired. It never kicked in and we ate our food in a most unpleasant atmosphere, warm and truly uncomfortable. We eat at Solaia all the time and we really expected a different level of acknowledgment and didn't appreciate not being told from the very beginning that the a.c. wasn't working. We brought our friends and we were embarrassed that it was so unpleasant."

  • "Usually go to this restaurant before seeing a show next door. Have been there 5 or 6 times. Food is OK but waiter & Waitresses are not educated regarding the menu. Never really seem to know much if you ask them about something listed on the menu. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "If you are going to the Bergen PAC to see a show this place is literally right next door. Got a reservation same day and was not really crowded on Saturday night at 6ish. A little pricey, but I'll gladly pay more for homemade pasta (which was delicious). Nice bread selection and a nice variety of appetizers. An NYC feel to the place. Not big portions, but excellent quality. No specials, but I overheard a waitress telling someone they could order something after 7:30pm...so maybe they have a different menu after the people who are there for the show leave. Very nice place to dine outdoors on a warm day. Would go back again."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We were enjoying our drinks/meal before going to PAC next door...until our waitress disappeared. Food was very good ( some items a bit pricey though) but service basically stopped as son as meals were dropped off. Couldn't find waitress for a round of drinks and misc. needs and everyone we asked to find her looked bewildered. This went on for 20 mins until one of our party asked to see the Manager. Manager never showed but waitress finally came with drinks after we finished our meals. She did apologize and comp the round of drinks. Would suggest clear request when you sit down for prompt service if you have a time limit. Worth a try!"

  • "It took forever to get food, service was horrible, waiter not experienced or knowledgeable at all and manager without any personality. I felt food was expensive for the area and food was not that great. If you want good time don't waste your money find another place to dine and there are few around the area. "

  • "Our Monday evening experience at Solaia was what we are accustomed to, great service, food and generally a wonderful experience. I never bothered responding to your request for a review of our meal on Sat night when we brought 5 friends since the service was awful and I didn't want to write about it. We will continue to go to Solaia because we know it's potential and we enjoy the ambiance and welcoming attitude at the restaurant."

  • "Four of us were going to a performance at the theater next door so your restaurant was in the perfect location. Your valet parking was greatly appreciated - knowing we could drive right up and not have to worry about finding a parking space. The ambiance of the restaurant is beautiful- and the food was totally delicious. Appealing menu to select from - This was our first visit but it definitely won't be our last - we loved it!!!"

  • "Restaurant is next door to the Bergen PAC, making it ideal for dinner before the show. The braised hort ribs were some of the best I have ever had, and I order that dish whenever it appears on a menu. A bit pricey, but worth it in the end. "

  • "We had an event next door at the Bergen Pac and you can't beat the distance. We had a 5:45 reservation as I have read in other reviews that they are slow with service and it held true as we walked out the door with 6 minutes till the show started which was 8:00 pm. The food is very good and the ambiance is very good. I would go back and eat again there again as long as I know I had no where to go to in a short period of time."

  • "The 14 oz NY strip steak was 7 oz at best. The Chealian sea bass was under cooked. And the red wine we ordered was brought to the table as white. The bread did not have butter and we found it hard to get service to correct the issues. Basically over priced and under serviced. This was a theater dinner and the resturant busy, but the service and food was hardly acceptable despite the busy activity."
