We have always had great food & outstanding service at Solas. We visit Silas a few times a year but try to make annual visit New Years before the family fireworks on the Boston Common. Great place for families or adult night out. Highly recommend trying Silas!

Mid-week dining @ 6:45pm found the downstairs bar area buzzing with patrons. The upstairs dining area is quieter and more suitable for dining with friends since conversation is easier. The menu has some wonderful "comfort foods" such as short ribs, mac and cheese, and a superlative chicken pot pie with a couple inches of puff pastry stacked on top( my favorite). Great location on Boylston Street a block from the Public Library and similarly close to the Prudential Center shops.

Best chicken fingers in Boston
Love the fish tacos and salmon dish also. Highly recommend if your shopping at Lord and Taylor’s to grab lunch there.

We were looking for a last minute spot on a Friday night and Solas popped up on Open Table. We had walk by this dozens of times and were happy to give it a try. It was a great experience. The bar is cozy and the service and the food were both great. As a gluten-free diner, I was thrilled with the choices too. Great little find--will definitely eat here again soon!

Excellent food. Try the beef ribs and clam chowder. Our waitress knew what she was doing. It’s not an environment for an intimate conversation though because of how loud the music is.

Fish and chips all tasted the same, as if cooked in the same oil simultaneously. Fish batter had NO flavor at all. The French onion soup was okay.

Remarkable clam chowder in a highly competitive environment, and the “blat,” though essentially a sandwich, needs a much more elevated classification. Tender, moist grilled chicken on a toasted but soft ciabatta wth lettuce, bacon, chipotle mayonnaise. Exquisite. Service by Kevin was outstanding and wonderfully personable.

This was my second time to Solas. The first time had been with family members, so when I was in Boston on business, I thought this would be a good place for a casual meal with business teammates. I was not disappointed. The food was great as was the atmosphere. I was glad I had reserved a table for a Sat evening as the place was "hopping" when we got there. Would definitely go back again.

Went to the Lenox hotel "city table" restaurant the day before for brunch and returned but it was closed for weekday lunchtime. Solas offered the same lovely service, high chair and coloring book for toddler. Grilled fish was good. Satisfied lunch cravings.

The fries with curry sauce were delish. Good chicken pot pie and shepherd's pie too. Bathroom is inconvenient, all the way in hotel next door.

Four of us stopped at Solas, which is part of the Lenox Hotel, before a Red Sox game. It was an unusually warm September evening and we were able to nab a table outdoors. Aside from the noise coming from Boylston Street, we were able to have a decent conversation without yelling.

The food was actually delicious. Two of us got the BLAT, (grilled chicken breast, bacon, lettuce, smashed avocado, tomato & chipotle mayo on parmesan focaccia), minus the bacon. The chicken was cooked perfectly and not at all dry like chicken breast can get. The combination of the chipotle mayo and smashed avocado was so tasty, as was the focaccia roll. One person got the turkey burger which he deemed very good, and the other got chicken tenders and fries.

Service was excellent. Our server was very attentive and pleasant without being overbearing. Restrooms are in the lobby of the hotel and are spotless. This is a good stop before the baseball game, and far enough away so that it's not packed and loud like some of the places closer to Fenway Park. There is noise from traffic on Boylston Street (trucks, sirens, etc.) and lots of people walking by, and one young man with a skateboard asked if we were done with our fries, but it didn't really take away from our enjoyable experience. Next time I will check out dining inside. I definitely recommend.
