Whether it be a cocktail while soaking up the sun at the poolside bar, an
expertly prepared meal, or a spirited conversation at the bar, Solaire
Restaurant + Bar offers the best of what is available with the changing
seasons.

Solaire offers a truly local dining destination that offers unexpected and
offbeat twists on local ingredients and flavors. The atmosphere of the
seasonal restaurant changes based on the weather—in the warm weather
months it is a playful experience centered on the indoor/outdoor bar and
the vibrant pool scene and in the foggier months guests can cozy up to the
fireplace or by a fire pit while enjoying a cocktail. Mirroring the laid-back attitude of Santa Cruz, the restaurant and bar incorporate the natural elements of the water, sky and fire in imaginative and modern ways.

Sink your teeth into fresh farm-to-table American comfort food at our Solaire Restaurant + Bar.

This is a lovely restaurant/lounge. As I expected, after reading other reviews, the service was not great. I had a wonderful cocktail called the Garden of Eden with cucumber vodka and mint among other things. I was very refreshing and not particularly strong, which I liked. The kale salad was good and we go the poke which I did not care for and was way over priced. But we sat by the fireplace and it was warm and cozy. It is definitely a spot for a romantic date.

We ate dinner during restaurant week. Decor is very arty. Bar and restaurant area beautifully integrated. Appetizers were excellent. Main course sauces way too sweet. Chocolate bombe dessert very good. Carrot cake advertised with cardamom and cream cheese frosting, neither of which was apparent in the dessert so not impressed. Great decor, food needs some tweaking.

We couldn't believe how bad the food was here. For instance what was advertised as macadamia covered mahi-mahi came deep fried with sloppy mashed potatoes. The desserts were a disgrace to a coffee shop. The cakes were extremely dry and covered with fluffy sweet stuff. The appetizers were not so bad.

I do dine often at the Solaris Restaurant and it's never a disappointment.

This second visit did not live up to our memory of our first visit a few months ago. Largely due to the less enthusiastic service, I felt as though we were an interruption to a conversation our server was having with another table. Beyond that, there was a mixup in the appetizer and the additional dipping sauce never arrived. The presentation of my husband's bunless burger could have been nicer. Two piles of lettuces on the plate. A request for malt vinegar to dip the fish and chips was met with a remark that it was already on the fries... What? The extra vinegar she wanted was already on there? And then we come to mine... The Caesar Salad was dry and the lettuce seemed old somehow. Even the two crossed anchovies on top we stiff and dried out. Inedible. Then for the clams... Absolutely delicious flavor except for the fact that the salt was complex overwhelming. I shared for other opinions and even my salt freak granddaughter agreed it was way too salty. I was actually heartbroken because the first time we ate here everything was perfect and the service was friendly, and the food was perfect. Not sure I'd give it a 3rd try.
