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 visited Solano's to celebrate a birthday. We sat inside and were served by a very friendly and professional waiter. He explained the specials and answered general questions. We started the meal with a side order of Ceasar salad, a nice crispy lettuce with cheese etc. Our main course dishes arrived after a little delay but were both excellent. Both fish dishes were nicely prepared and tasted great. We had a very nice bottle of Russian River Chardonnay with the meal.
The restaurant patio was busy as usual but the main dining room where we had a nice window table was only moderately busy with diners.
We plan to return on another visit to the attractive town of La Quinta.
Took Great friends here, sat outside, food & service were Outstanding.
Just one of those nights when everything clicked. Definitely heading back soon.
Love it !!
We absolutely love Solano's. The food is almost always excellent and the servers are attentive and try hard to please. I feel the food is very high quality and they profess organic when possible so I appreciate that. The brunch is excellent!
Seamless from making the reservation to our evening for our dinner with
visiting family… Totally recommend this neighbored gem !
Thank You Solano for being consistent, serving good food and your servers
make you feel like family.
They prepare all kinds of fish as well as any place I go here or in the Puget Sound area. And I am particular about fish.
Second time here, and we'll go back. We were six and the food came out hot and promptly. The outdoor area is just OK, but the service and food are worth the trouble to go there.
This is a great little place for a quiet evening dinner.
Always come back to this old town favourite as its never a disappointment
The food ambiance and setting is great
Our food was certainly adequate and the portions generous. The pork chop was cooked nicely but the broccolini was overcooked and wilted. I'd give the butter lettuce salad a pass if we were to return.
Great service, delicious fish and very enjoyable evening
