Fusion / Eclectic
Located in Historic Downtown Willoughby, Sol is truly unique. The building dates back to the 1920s - originally serving as the Cleveland, Painesville, and Eastern Railroad power substation – and mixes modern and classic design to maintain and preserve the original architecture. Customized furniture and wood from Indonesia, unique lighting, and a variety of texture and tiles make the interior of the restaurant one of a kind. Expansive bar areas and cozy booths are the perfect place to dine or relax with a cocktail. Our award-winning patio with wood-burning fireplace and gazebo is the perfect place to lounge on a warm sunny day. Chef Brandon Hufnagle has built a home with Sol, working through the ranks over the past 8 years, and delivers amazing and delicious dishes that compliment the space perfectly.

    It was great, would come back again. The creamed mushrooms and spinach and tacos were amazing.

    Too loud and took too long for food to be served...
    SolResponded 6 days ago
    Thank you for taking the time to reviw us. We have live music on Sundays so sorry if that was not communicated. What was bad about the food that warranted a three, and interesting that you rated the noise "do not recall" and that is the first thing you mentioned.

    Was St Patrick’s day so it was CRAZY! But after having reservations we finally got are table in a half hour of waiting. Service a little slow ran out of food other than corn beef sandwich
    SolResponded 6 days ago
    Thank you for taking the time to review us and the four-star rating. As you mentioned, it was St. Pat's Day so not a typical day in any establishment that celebrates this holiday. We hope you might give us a chance to change that four-star into a five on a regular operating day.

    Service! ............... Service, Service, Service!!! It can make or break a good dinner and a nice time out. OK, we were undecided what to have, but then again the things we did order, they were out of - also very bad! Yet our waitress did not make us feel welcome or that we deserve to be there to enjoy a nice time. Getting her to our table was one feat and the second was having her give us the time long enough for her to answer our questions or to order anything. Her last sentence to us was always while she walked away from our table and at least a full table away from us. Sol hooked me with their email invitation and the menu they were serving. I signed up to take my wife out for a nice dinner. The two appetizers we ordered first Sol ran out of. Although my steak Diane was good, it was sooo covered in their mashed potatoes and mushroom cream sauce I couldn't find the steak to cut it and eat it. It would have been better to have them (or most of them) on the side. Because of all the above we had no desire to stay for dessert or another drink. Plus, their beer selection is very short sighted.

    The Carne asada power bowl for brunch was delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. I also had a Vanilla Latte, which I would not recommend for $7. It was not horrible but just tasted like slightly older coffee with some vanilla flavoring. There was a band on the other side which wasn’t too loud and pleasant while being able to still hold a conversation.
    SolResponded 6 days ago
    Thank you for taking the time to review us. We appreciate the five-star rating and we are glad you enjoyed the bowl. Not sure what happened with the coffee but we will certainly take note.
