My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience dining at Solas during COVID-19. We dined outside and felt incredibly safe from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. All staff were wearing masks, and tables were appropriately spaced out. Food, drinks and service was top notch. I ordered the Solas Chicken which was incredibly tasty (especially the potatoes!) and my boyfriend got the Salmon which he enjoyed too. The highlight of our dining experience was the complementary champagne given to us by the waitress when she heard we were celebrating our anniversary. Kudos to the entire team for going above and beyond in these stressful times. Would absolutely recommend Solas to friends and family!

I love this cozy pub! Very energetic and good food choices, without being overwhelming.

Chicken Pot pie is the best! It is loaded with vegetables and chunks of chicken and topped with a golden puff pastry. Onion soup is chock full of onions in a rich beef broth, topped with a thick layer of cheese! We also had the big, soft pretzels on the appetizer menu, served piping hot with a cheese dipping sauce.

Service is always good . Really nice, small intimate bar at front of the dining room. One of my favorite casual places to dine in Boston.

Went to lunch, enjoyed it so much we went back for dinner. Excellent burger and fries. Nice juicy burger, very fresh fries, hot and crisp. Good selection of beers on tap. Highly recommend the shepherd’s pie and the Onion soup. What really raised it from good to great was the service. We had Sarah as our server both lunch and dinner. She was warm and cheery, quick with a genuine smile. She answered our tourist questions with some great tips. We might even go back again this trip. Definitely will next trip!

This was our first visit to Solas and we will go there again. Our waitress, Sara, was very personable and helpful. While early for our reservation, we were seated promptly. The upstairs dining area was very pleasant and the seating was designed to give tables space and privacy. My husband loved the menu and wanted to order everything but settled on Bangers & Mash. He said it was very good.

Definitely a bar environment; not child friendly. Music too loud, room temperature too cold, bland food, and when a server asks if you, as the patron, have any questions, and thereafter shrugs their shoulders and is indifferent ... hence 2 stars.

Solas is a good spot to stop before a game or concert at Fenway Park. When the weather is nice, they have a patio so you can eat outdoors. The noise level is a bit energetic which made it hard to have a conversation. Food was good, including the black bean burger wrap and the chicken sandwich with the odd-sounding but delicious peanut butter mayonnaise. The homemade chips with dipping sauce and soft pretzel were tasty starters. Our waitress was excellent--friendly and efficient. We always stop here before a Fenway event and it never disappoints.
