Contemporary American
Solano's Bistro is known as "the neighborhood gem of La Quinta". Owner and chef Francisco "Paco" Solano uses fresh ingredients found in the Pacific Northwest and combines them with a unique Baja style flavor to create the unique dishes on the menu. The combination of a casual atmosphere and the delicious cuisine make Solano's Bistro popular with both tourists and residents of the desert. Enjoy lunch, dinner or even Sunday brunch in the comfortable dining room or outdoor patio. With a menu that features dishes like gazpacho, white bean and arugula salad and Thai Salmon, it is no wonder Solano's Bistro was a Diner's Choice award winner. Daily specials like Wine Wednesday, which features bottles of wine at fifty percent off, are just another reason customers flock to Solano's Bistro.

    My wife and I have been there many times. We really like it. The last 3 times we have been there, everyone except us has been recognized, but we haven't. We feel a little left out and underappreciated. If you're not sure on someone's previous attendance, please ask.

    Best steak in the valley. I have eaten at all the steak places in the valley, and the fillet I had on Saturday was the best! Cooked perfectly, and seasoned. The entire meal was delicious.

    Outstanding service from Francisco. The short ribs were outstanding and so were the shrimp and scallops.

    The overall experience was above average. It may be one of the best Bolognese that I have ever had! We are definitely coming back! We have already recommended it to friends.

    They had a wonderful sounding mahi-mahi special. Unfortunately the server didn’t warn us it was in limited supply. When we tried to order it, they were out. Lesson learned.

    We had dinner there when we were vacationing nearby and the meal was so good we went back for our anniversary a few days later. Our server Fernando was outstanding, gave us good recommendations and treated us like family. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice meal. Will be back next time we are in the area. Thanks!
