Solas Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
We sat at a street side table and enjoyed a fabulous meal. Our waitress was attentive without hovering. She made great recommendations. The Irish Meatloaf was absolutely amazing - so flavorful and delicious. Brussels sprouts combined with great mashed potatoes rounded out the meal. Can't wait to go back to Solas!
It was a nice venue but really loud with speakers over our head... a little disappointed since we had made a reservation a week in advance... maybe we should have specified wanting to talk to each other.
I hadn't seen my friend in over 6 months and it was hard to talk.
Great fir all. Took my 12 year old daughter and friend and were pleasantly surprised at the varied menu. Typical pub options but all escalated and homemade. Lots of options for everyone from healthy to total comfort. Great location - great ambiance. Hadn't been in a while but already looking forward to going back with my husband for a casual late afternoon lunch and a couple of drinks.
I went to celebrate my Dad's birthday and we had the best time. We were seated right away and served quickly. We all got different food (salad with shrimp; buff chicken flatbread; turkey club; fish & chips) - and everything was SO good. I couldn't pick my favorite meal. The shrimp was so fresh and the French fries were my favorite. I would definitely recommend to any group looking for a fun irish-feel pub in the back bay area.
I was surprised. I didn't expect a lot from a hotel restaurant in a very touristy area of Boston, but the food was better than I thought. We had the rueben eggrolls which were very tasty, then the pretzel (YUM!), then the mac and cheese. Great comfort food. Service was just ok but that is kinda the vibe they are going for. High energy, small space, sports on the TV. Not fancy, not trying to be. We will definitely go back
