Great service and food. Ate there before a show at Orpheum Theatre. Highly recommended for a good meal and great service that's not too expensive.

Shrimp Fritters very good... Ahi Tuna A++ one of the best dishes I’ve had here. Cooked perfectly with just enough seasoning not to overpower the tuna.... only disappointment was the fairly tasteless sorbet. Been here about 10-22 times and Soluna Café is consistently good!

We ate here because it is very convenient to the theater district and had availability on the same day. The dishes we had were good including ahi salad and braised brisket. We could've passed on dessert as they had run out of the caramel sauce (seeing as how we were the first customers for dinner, I'm thinking more they didn't prepare it then they ran out) and the ice cream was only fair. However, overall, the dinner dishes were excellent and our server was pleasant and attentive.

Nice ambience. Small corner booths allow intimacy. Food was delicious. A little on the expensive side. I will go back however! Good for pre-ballet, concert or theater dining.

Nice place in a restaurant free zone near Civic Center to have a business lunch. Good salads and quiet.

Food was very good. Enjoyed the music being played. Quiet enough for a business meeting to occur.

If it hadn't been for 'Dead Poets Society' being played on the big screen, I would have rated the ambience higher. I would have appreciated if they had put the Warriors game on instead of a CNN show. The waiter was professional and helpful. The food was quick to our table after we ordered. It was delicious and my coulette steak was cooked to my requested doneness perfectly. The dessert was a dark chocolate mousse that was more like pudding. The texture wasn't pleasing but the taste was okay. This was our third visit here and probably, won't be our last.

Great meal before a show at the Orpheum. They were out of the 2 mains I wanted to choose which should have been disclosed up front. The charcuterie was very good and my friends Mac and Cheese with pancetta, was perfection. I would go back and give them a try again.

Excellent food, I tried my friends dishes and they were all delicious... wish I had also ordered them. Will be going back more often.

Came here before seeing a show at the Orpheum. Good food, service was lacking a bit but didn't bother me a whole lot. Nice ambiance and there was a good crowd when we went.

The service was undeniably slow but our server was the only staff member working the entire restaurant. Considering his circumstances he was incredibly pleasant, communicative and was hustling his booty off. We appreciated the experience and were empathetic to the situation. The burger with Brie was amazing and we left full and satisfied. Would definitely come back!

My friend had the burger - as always. It's the best burger in town and the fries are good too.

I opted for the dungeness crab croquettes and I can't wait to go back for more while they are in season.

Meanwhile I eyed the chicken being devoured at an adjacent table.

Decisions! Decisions??

Bummer this time. The fried chicken was soggy and cold. Enough said.
