Solomon's: Tetherow's fine dining experience
Solomon's highlights vibrant offerings from the Pacific Northwest. Premium steaks and seafood are thoughtfully prepared alongside vegetarian creations and decadent desserts. With representations from the finest west coast regions, the extensive wine collection will perfectly accent any meal. We are inspired daily by the stunning sunsets over the Cascades and you will be, too! Solomon's is open Wednesday - Sunday, 5:00 pm - close. Reservations are encouraged.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and decided to give Solomon's a try. The food and Service were excellent, everything was cooked to order so it was a nice, leisurely meal (we hate to be rushed).

When we made our reservation, our host said that since it was our wedding anniversary, we would be offered a glass of bubbly or a free desert. There was no offer made. This was disappointing, but it did not take away from the great food and service.

We will return.

Great food and and good service. Very noisy customer at bar. Waiter’s uniform and general appearance borderline for restaurant of this quality. There was one bar customer that was very loud and unfortunately using foul language. This is not what we expected at a small usually quiet restaurant.

Pork chops were not edible. Empty dining room yet we were seated right next to another couple whose conversation we could overheat. Bread was terrible. Lighting too dark.

We were celebrating an early New Year’s Eve with friends. Three of us ordered steak which came with chived potato purée. One of the steak orders was not cooked the way it was requested so had to be sent back, the potato purée was cold on all 3 orders. The bread was tasteless. Our bread pudding dessert was presented nicely but was over-baked, dry, & difficult to cut. The decaf coffee was foamy on the top, & we all agreed had to be instant Nescafé. We remembered that from our visit years before. A very disappointing experience & not worth the very expensive tab. We will not be back.

Delicious food, attentive service. Ambience was standard for the setting (golf course). Clean and quiet. I’ll think back on the risotto for the rest of my days.

Was our first visit to Soloman’s, and we were celebrating a birthday with a party of seven. The setting is spectacular, overlooking the golf course and western Bend. And unlike most restaurants these days, it was very quiet. Our waiter, Heath, was really good. Food was all very tasty, including some stellar desserts. Only suggestion would be to make the entrees slightly larger. That said, we will definite be back.

Service was fine. Drinks and wine were excellent; but food was disappointing. Ribeye steak was well done - well past medium rare as ordered. My lady guests were. “meh”.

Solomon has improved it's kitchen. Still why should the portions be so big. Make them smaller and improve on the taste quality, rather than the size of the meals. Service was excellent and the views and atmosphere are special.

Entree food was tasteless. No amount of seasoning could improve it. I had a glass of wine with dinner. The wine was flat. Tasted like it had been in an uncorked bottle in a refrigerator for several days.

On the positive side, the appetizer was good and the atmosphere and noise level in the restaurant was excellent.

Chef needs to start seasoning the food.

Yes, but with a qualification re service and menu items; avoid Cyndi as your waitress as well as seafood cocktail (defrosted and flavorless shrimp and crab claws, sauce from a bottle) and Bouillabaisse (mediocre and very salty broth).

It was our 49th anniversary and I had just be released from hospital and put on very restrictive low sodium diet. Called the chef
The day before and he prepared special salt-free polenta for me plus made sure the other things we ordered were low sodium. View was beautiful and noise level very good. Delightful evening. Wish he had been the chef at the hospital cuz his food (Ben) was ever so much better than their low sodium offerings!

Duck over cooked. Used canes onions to top pork.

We live in a place that has 36 brewery’s. And they didn’t have 1 wheAt beer.

Waiter if we we were “full enough”. Didn’t even offer desert or coffee.

Just wanted to get us out even thought only 4 tables were occupied.

Not worth it!

The service and views from Solomons were excellent. The waitstaff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The food was OK but not memorable. If the quality of the food was better, we would be more tempted to come back.

The ambiance was lovely with a great view. The old fashioned was the best cocktail I’ve ever had! The food was just ok, not bad but also not great. I could make the same thing at home but better. Would definitely come back for the view and a cocktail, just wouldn’t waste my money on subpar cuisine.
