This restaurant is one of my go-to eateries in the area. I've only been here for dinner and it never disappoints. Make sure to get the artichoke dip served with the fresh baguette, so good! Great drinks, a simple menu filled with great food, & amazing service.

You have to try to cheddar biscuits. We ordered two for the table just to try and we had to order two more. They were that good. We were seated downstairs which isn't that interesting but has the advantage of being more quiet. Upstairs is more vibrant.

Relaxed good quality dining. Salads were delicious and fresh, entrees we nicely prepared. Approachable wine list. Only negative was someone’ “service dog” which wasn’t.
Other than that, a good meal for a good price with a relaxed vibe.

I love Solace and going there for HH specials. My recent dining experience was different and at no fault of our server. There was a group that had a service animal which I fully suppprt;however they did not have control of the animal so not a service dog but an emotional support animal. The dog was wandering around the restaurant during our meal (not under voice or handle with leash control) which was also indicative of not being a service animal. I would encourage training for your staff about what they can ask legally and how to handle those situations as they are becoming more common. Everyone has the right to enjoy their meal as well as feel comfortable and safe.

Free Food!

Sadly, the free food was to compensate for extremely poor service. We were at Solace at 7:30 on a Friday night. It was full, but Open Table had reservations available every 15 minutes. Started well with a cocktail order, first course was a little slow, and then everything stopped. If you have the patience of a Biblical character and truly enjoy celebrating the Holiday season by having tables arriving after you receive their first course and entre before you, Solace is the place for you. Without asking, they comped the first course and entre. My guess is this is not new to them.

We enjoy Solace for the interesting menu which is prepared well. Service is a different issue. Usually if a restaurant recognizes a problem and attempts to make it right we are forgiving. However, it happens all too often at Solace. Time to find a new Friday night burger and beer place.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a rare night out at Solace on Saturday. We enjoyed the aesthetics of the restaurant as well as the menu. We started with an amazing 3 cheese plate-was very tasty and considerable for two people. We additionally shared mussels, beef tartare and the warm spinach salad. All three (shared) entrees were good, well proportioned and attractive. Of the three, I enjoyed the salad and the mussels most.

The only complaint I have is the bathroom circumstance -since we were eating downstairs I had to wait 10+ minutes to go to the unisex bathroom which wasn't very clean (and was used by a worker for the 10 minutes I was waiting during my dinner).

The restaurant was quiet for conversation; the lounge was a bit more lively. Our dinner (salmon appetizer/sea bass entree) was exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented. The portions were a bit small and no sides included. Only two bathrooms available resulted in a small wait.
