    We went on fried chicken night and had to try it after several people told us about it. It was family style and super yummy. Waiter was great & even had some great choices for beer & wine to go with dinner. Weather was perfect so we ate outside & loved it!

    We dined at SolBar for our anniversary and were disappointed. We arrived early to have a cocktail to find a big group of loud people watching football on the bar television. We waited 25 minutes for our cocktails to arrive. They were already made, sitting on the counter and never delivered. The restaurant and bar are in one room so acoustics are terrible, especially with screaming fans fifteen feet away from our table. Service was terrible. The waiter discussed our wine selection in detail but it was not delivered until our third course. In summary…the football watchers screamed the whole time (like a neighborhood dive bar) there was a complete lack of service and mediocre food. It’s shocking that they have a Michelin star!

    The food was Ok, interesting and of the good quality. I like the way they did the menu.But the service was not properly made. It was too fast and unmatched food and wine delivery. However the staff was friendly. The atmosphere is totally ruined everything. People wearing shorts, screaming and laughing ladies, baseball on TV and no background music at all made me feel like in a pub not in 1-star restaurant.

    My wife and I stopped in for an anniversary lunch and we were so impressed with the food and service. Tim was a great server and split all of our plates without us asking. The fish tacos were out of this world and the beet salad was so fresh. We will definitely head back to Solbar to try dinner next time.

    I was here with two friends for a day trip on 10/12/14. We went to the spa and had a noon reservation. Before even checking-in with the hostess, you could feel the vibe was off. Servers seemed frazzled as groups of clients waited to be seated. We asked to be seated outside, and they had to bring an additional table outside to accommodate us. We were seated, and two other tables beside us were seated after us. We were left with a food menu; there was no water and no drink menu. We sat..and sat...and sat. Surprising for a Michelin star rated restaurant. My patience weened as we saw that servers had come to to the tables seated after us...it was obvious that we were upset when our server did come. Luckily, the food made up for the service.

    Went for 20th anniversary. At reception, there was no greeting, no smile, just raised eyebrows. We were then ushered to a table between 2 occupied tables about 3 inches away on either side. I asked if we could be seated at one of the other unoccupied tables & the answer was NO. Those tables remained unoccupied until about 1 hour into our meal. Sitting so close to others was not enjoyable especially when other tables were available. 2 days later we went back as part of a hot air balloon excursion. When our guide checked in for our reservation (as he does every single day of the week with other groups) they indicated we would have to wait 45 min to an hour. No apologies. He was really angry. We didn't stay. Won't go back due to disservice.

    My wife and I went for breakfast. We started with the donut holes : do not miss them! I had the French toast. My wife has the ham and cheese omelet. She could not stop saying it was the best she had ever had. And she should know since she graduated from the Culinary Academy (in SF). The service was very good. The environs were beautiful. We ate on a Wed morning so it was very peaceful. We hope to go back again for lunch or dinner.

    FoodieVIP
    Dined on 9/19/2014
    The chef changed the sole in coconut (which is the best ever) to a dried out piece of sole with no distinction. It was almost inedible dry. Why change a great menu item that's SO unique and "melt in your mouth"???? The chicken was good, the lamb so tender, as was the rib eye, the tomatoes in ricotta incredible, corn soup with an incredible real corn taste in a non-cream prep, regular salads nice -- but not as distinct as the tomatoes. Our waiter was awesome, and service in general 5 star.

    This restaurant is part of a very high end resort and spa, but we didn't feel like an outsider. Everyone greeted us, warmly and professionally from ballet to restaurant manager. Amazing food, was just so good, service was excellent, really made us feel like come back and see us soon. Would be back in a heartbeat. Make sure you like food, if you are a meat and potatoes kind of person, this is not the place for you. Liked that it was up the valley and away from the normal crush in Yountville and St. Helena. The inside is going to do a full renovation shortly, so after that I would say the ambiance will be up several notches. If you like patio dinning they have that too and its very nice.

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My wife and I and another couple went to Solbar for breakfast. In short, it was one of the best breakfasts we've ever had! We started with their donut holes and they were light, warm and delicious -- a great way to start. You know the food is good when your whole table is silent -- everyone stopped talking and just wanted to savor their meal! I had the Duck Confit Hash and it was excellent. I was concerned that the portion was small but I was very full at the end -- the perfect amount of food. My wife went with the Uptown Breakfast Sandwich (she loved it) and I would have loved a taste of the Sol-Pe my friend got but he ate it all before I could have a bite. Their coffee was delicious and the service was excellent.

    While the food and setting remain spectacular, our service was not up to par. Staff stood together chatting in Spanish. The drink order came after the food.

    Tried to get a drink at the bar before dinner with no other patrons around and it was like they had more important things to do. Waited 5 minutes and never served when Bartender was 5 feet from me. They really think they are the tops and are no longer at the top of there game. Appetizer was good however meal was just OK. I would recommend D'Amici's, Market, Archeopole or Mustards before this location these days. They at least seem to appreciate your business more with little attitude. Table Server was polite but I do not need half the wait staff to present my meal. I can get arrogance at work and do not need it on vacation.
