I really like Soluna. We had a really great server and delicious food. The ambiance is nice but casual and the booths really comfy. Overall it was an excellent experience.

Soluna used to be a real hot spot in the Civic Center area but it was very quiet on the day I went for lunch. Good lunch menu - we split a Cuban sandwich (very moist) which came with fries and macaroni and cheese. The macaroni was made with a variety of white cheeses and bacon - very creamy.

A friend and I had dinner at the restaurant before the theater. The restaurant wasn't that crowded, but it took a few minutes for the host to greet us. We essentially stood in the doorway for 2-3 minutes without being acknowledged by any staff. He seated us, and then it was another significant period (maybe a little under 10minutes) before we were greeted by a waiter, which turned out to be the host. He looked very disinterested in serving us - didn't first ask us if we wanted a drink or even water. We gave our order first because we had theater tickets, and as he started to leave, I stopped him to put in our drink orders. I do acknowledge the young waiter who brought our food (which I thought was mediocre) - he was VERY friendly, asked what play we were seeing, and let us know that he was going to NY for his bday and scheduled to see the same play. He was so sweet and authentic. As I looked around for the waiter to bring our check, I noticed the host hanging out at the bar with a bunch of other guys just chatting. It was not the most pleasant dining experience.

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.
