    Service was excellent, too bad the same can be said about the environment. Way too loud!

    On the way to a concert. Ordered the Chief Special Tomato Bisque Soup with Blue Cheese Crumbles and Halibut. For desert I enjoyed a fruit crisp topped with Ice Cream. All 3 were delicious and served promptly. The cocktails I ordered were done to perfection. Overall everyone was very friendly, busy and accommodating. (There was an incident where a customer acted like she was upset that a fairly large party was too noisy. I think that most of the dinning crowd was embarrassed for her husband. She could have moved). The Staff handled it in a professional manner.

    We dine at Solano’s often. The food is good, it’s hot and quickly served. We just did not have a good experience this time. Dining in the left portion of the seating area as you enter is usually noisier, diners voices just seem to bounce off the walls. But there was a large group seated next to us and they were obnoxiously loud, to the point of rudeness. They were much more important than the rest of us, based on their behavior. We could not carry on a conversation. Another patron took it upon herself to chastise them. Then it was game on. There was a back and forth argument, then she lodged a complaint with management, which accomplished nothing. The large group was quiet for a couple minutes and when they figured out management was not coming out, resumed their obnoxious behavior. I think Solano’s needs to figure out who they want to be, nice dining or bar room and at least the manager could have made an appearance.

    First time there and we’ll be back! Decent pizza, very good pasta, and the fish special was excellent. A little slow in the uptake when we sat, and way too quick serving courses. That’s the sweet spot for improving. The wait staff needs to get better and I’m sure they will!

    My wife and I celebrated our 32nd anniversary here tonight, and wow! The food and service was incredible. A true hidden gem for locals in Palm Desert! My wife had the Chicken Marsala and I ordered a meat lovers pizza. Both were awesome! This restaurant has now been added to our short list of favorites in the area.

    This was my first time here- I don't like giving low reviews, but I did in this case. The positives were, the staff was super friendly. They originally were going to sit us next to a large table with loud guests, and I asked to move to the opposite side of the restaurant which they gladly accommodated. The wait staff was very nice and provided excellent service. Where things went bad, was the food. We ordered fried calimari- a big disappointment, they tasted like they were frozen with a really heavy coating/crust. They were also tough/rubbery to eat- thumbs down. I ordered a margarita pizza- the crust was very soggy- not much flavor, I wouldn't order pizza there in the future, compared to some other places in town that have so much better pizza offerings. I also ordered a grilled artichoke- it was drenched with butter, (not my thing, too messy to eat for my taste), but it was good. Another friend ordered butternut ravioli which he loved (but honestly, those also looked store bought, and not made fresh- however I could be wrong). [ We had a pleasant experience there over all, just not sure I'd ever rush back based on the quality of the food.

    Great food and service!! Enjoyed the calamari to start and I had the chicken fettuccine- excellent with the peas and mushrooms. Other 2 guests had the Cajun shrimp linguine- had a taste and it too was delicious. Thank you Solanos!!
