    I am an admitted foodie and don't keep kosher. My frequent experience with kosher restaurants is that they are expensive (unless, of course we are going for pizza or Chinese) and average on food, at best. I was surprised how good, creative and fresh the food was here. I would go back even without entertaining someone who keeps kosher and definitely would recommend it.

    food was mediocre and overpriced. menu said buffalo mozzarella ravioli ... really? asked mashgiach about it, he said they just call it that. service was awful - diner quality. noisy place with staff running around like mad. not what you expect at these prices. one person in our party waited 15 minutes after the others were served. runners hand you plates across the table and expect you to clear your plates. they bring you food and don't know who to serve it to. 3 out of the 4 fish ordered were overcooked. desserts were good.

    If the e Eng requires a kosher restaurant, Solo gets the job done with great food. The wait staff could use some work, but it is clear they recognize they are catering to a crowd that has few other options. That said, the food was great.

    Terrible experience. First, the service was pretty bad. We were given no bread, no water. Our waiter took our order and disappeared for the rest of the meal. The food was very average and the portions tiny. I ordered a $36 steak salad entree which was ridiculously small and had almost no steak.

    Actually go to this restaurant because my friend works at Sony and Solo is located in their lobby. having said this, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in need of a kosher establishment, but also anyone who likes good food. The portions are HUGE and that is to be kept in mind when ordering as you can share alot of their dishes. The "duck pad thai" comes to mind regarding sharing - while it's not like any pad thai I have ever eaten, it is well worth ordering. And even when the place is packed and noisy and crazy with very few service people, you never have to wait long for good service. Pricey as well. But tends to be worth it.

    Generaly its just ok but mainly Too expensive for the level of food. Good Kosher not necessarily must be overly expensive. Restraunt is good but not good enough to charge what they do. $45 dsteak should be way better than what they served. $20 for tuna tartar appetizer is overpriced by all means , even for 5 star restraunts. (and this is not one...) Small wine selection. Not a place I will go back to.

    Food was amazing and service was good. Manager was dour and not welcoming. Waitress could not combine two types of "sliders" into one dish, looks like this was not the first such request judging by the firm "no". Maybe, that needs a re-thinking!

    I would reccomend only because overpriced sub-standard food seems the only type you can really get. It was just reasonable - salmon (in a less than stellar sauce). Decor is nice. Nothing notable.

    Food was great. I went with a business associate who did not know the restaurant was Kosher and it made no difference to him. We were able to have a business discussion and the wait staff did not interrupt us. When we left, he said he would definitely come there again with others. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, but especially those who keep Kosher and who want to take out a non-Kosher crowd without making a big deal about the Kosher thing.

    As this is a Kosher restaurant, this restaurant is quite fitting for that demographic. My customer insisted on dining at a Kosher restaurant. The food was pricey but above average. The overall tone was incredibly stuffy and there was an "air" within the room.The only waitress was incredibly arrogant for no reason.With that said, it was a nice dining restaurant for a "Kosher" restaurant.

    Quite pricey (dinner for two can run up to $150+), but food is absolutely superb. Service is well coordinated. Decor and environment was pleasant. Certainly a place to have a remarkable evening to celebrate an important event. One of the best kosher restaurant in North America.

    ConcertgoersVIP
    Dined on 5/3/2011
    My dish, a chilean sea bass cut into circles of "faux scallops" for this kosher restaurant, was barely passable. The fish was mealy in texture and bland. Other diners in our group said their dinners were "OK". I accept that kosher restaurants generally are more expensive than non-kosher ones, but this restaurant is grossly over-priced, as kosher restaurants go. It's very expensive, and the food is just mediocre.
