Our waitress "Kat" did an excellent job. The only disappointment was 2 different online menu's showed a ribeye with different methods of presentation. No ribeye's on the actual menu.
We had a wonderful birthday celebration. Booked the table on line. Everyone was super attentive and VERY NICE. Meredith was our server and she was awesome. Just a great evening at a terrific venue!!
We really enjoyed Solid. Good sandwiches all around, excellent service and a nice “city” vibe. Close to movie theatre, breweries - good end of evening destination in downtown Boise.
Great food and great service. The wait staff were very attentive but not over bearing, food selection was very creative and very tasty.
Food is good, surprisingly good. But, service and ambience is a bit too casual.
We went to Solid for Restaurant Week. I'm not a fan of pumpkin in general, but the pumpkin-and-something- I-don't-recall bisque was terrific. The catfish and grits was almost as good. Friendly, unpretentious place. Will definitely go back.
I normally stick with my go-to gyro (the best in town in my opinion!) but we tried the hummus (great) and the nachos on this visit. Unfortunately the nachos were overcooked, not enough cheese and the cheese on there was brown and crispy, they were overloaded with jalepenos and a little disappointing for the price. This won't deter us from coming back though!
Very good service, entertainment outside that night wasn't great so we left early
Singer on patio was horrible! Too loud for the location. She tried to overcompensate for her off-key singing by pounding on her electric keyboard. The table conversation was a struggle Server had an attitude too, like she was put out to have to repeatedly return to our table for a new bar order because they were out of the beer my husband was ordering. Took three trips. Food was okay but nothing special.
Love the portabella Greek salad with grilled shrimp...Yum 👍
I never realized Solid was more than a bar and had food. I was even more surprised to find that it was really good food! My husband and I shared the risotto bites (and almost licked the plate clean because they were so delicious), the sweet potato enchiladas (kind of a small portion, which normally is fine, except they were so good we wanted more), the steak salad (also great) and the bread pudding (which was not the best I've ever had but was still a really good bread pudding).
Great father's day dinner! Patio seating in historic Boise, live music not too loud, good food! Only minor complication was that our table and neighbor's did not have silverware. A fact that the server missed so we both were forced to walk inside to ask for some. A minor detail overall. Server was very attentive otherwise.
We went here for Father's Day and really enjoyed the food. The wine platter was a great starter and the drinks were tasty!
Great food and service steak was overcooked but other than that things were great
I always love coming to Solid! Great food and great atmosphere!
Great staff. Attentive when you need them and, in the background when you do not.
We were weary after a full day of driving and we just wanted good food and casual atmosphere.
We had friendly and professional wait help, delicious food that was well prepared...we sat inside because there was music outside and we wanted a place where the four of us could converse. It was a little noisy inside, but ok. Wish I were in Boise more often.
Great patio with mist in hot weather. Large varied menu and good happy hour value. Excellent location in BODO.
We wanted something that allowed us to visit with friends, while having drinks and dinner. Solid came through with a venue that was quiet enough on the inside, while on the patio guests were enjoying live music. The music was not too loud and allowed us a nice background entertainment.
The food was great and the service was exceptional!
The food was excellent and plentiful. Definitely good value. The service , at times, painfully slow. Our server was friendly, but, unfortunately the kitchen was not keeping up. He kept apologizing for how long our food was taking.
Nothing special, decent food, good service. Overall a nice place.
Good service. Great chili.
Food tasted as if it was prepared hours before, grits were dry, cooked vegetables were mushy; drinks where weak and service was slow. Don't waste your time at Solid Grill & Bar.
Excellent menu selection and service.
Our waitress was knowledgable and recognized that I liked darker beers. She suggested we try three other beers and sold two of them. Unfortunately, we couldn't fill our growler since we didn't have a cap.
Food was decent, huge portions! The risotto was flavored like Spanish rice and would be better as a brown rice or long grain. Fries were delicious!
We had a nice dinner at Solid. Our table was ready when we arrived and our drink orders were filled quickly. The menu is balanced with a bit of a focus on bistro-style. My wife had the herb-grilled chicken with risotto - she loved the chicken but passed on the risotto - just wasn't her style. I had shrimp and grits with roasted onions and peppers - good flavor and portion. Dessert was pumpkin cheesecake (not as creamy as I had hoped) and bread pudding (good but a bit firm) - we shared both. Service was good throughout. Overall, a nice dinner at Solid.
this was an OK experience. Nice presentation on the food. The catfish was OK, advertised as pan fried but I suspect it was deep fried. Half the steak was edible but that half was tasty. The rest fat and gristle. The waitress was very distracted, more interested in running back and forth to a large table than checking in on us. Had to wait till half way through my main dish to get the glass of wine I ordered when the first course arrived. Long wait between courses as well. Good happy hour though. Would recommend with reservations
Great prices, food and service. We really enjoyed our meals.
First time I'd been to Solid for dinner. Wife had the ribeye, I had the salmon. Both well-executed, a perfect start to our night out sans kiddos.
Found this place last minute for Valentine's Day, had an opening at 8:30, went in at 8 and they seated us right then! Both my girlfriend and I ordered sandwiches, they were on our table within 8 minutes! Fast! And delicious, will be coming back later
Went for dinner on valentine's day. The staff was so polite and willing to help each other out clearing tables, bringing out drinks, ect. We shared the artichoke dip, the chicken and waffles entree, and the raspberry cheesecake with a brownie crust... which was amazing. Definitely recommend if you want to relax, eat good reasonably priced food, and enjoy the company of whoever is with you.
Live music was kind of not good - could hardly have a conversation at the same table
Can't beat the atmosphere or beer list. That's why we went. Great service too. Menu seems ambivalent between gourmet and pub (more towards pub). I recommend them going more gourmet, although I understand the balancing act with beer.
Three of the orders were wrong, one had a hair in it. One of the guests sat and waited for food while everyone else finished. When that food was brought out, the order was still wrong. Ketchup was also asked for, and the waitress had it in her apron and never dropped it off. I have ate their before and service and food was great, not sure what happened that day.
The food is fantastic. The chicken cordon blue had a nice twist of bacon. It's a great place to go when you want to spend a little extra money.
Service sucked could not get drinks did not put are hole order in and one person never even got their food
Fun downtown vibe, great comfort food menu. Something for everybody. Nikki was great.
Worst dining experience I've had in Boise.
We had dinner there on New Year's Eve. We were seated promptly and the food was delicious. We brought in our own champagne and wine and their corkage fees were only $10.00. There were four of us and between us we had the Rib-Eye Steak, Shrimp and Grits and the Chicken Corden Bleu and all were delicious. The clams (for being frozen) were very good as an appetizer.
Would definitely return to this restaurant.
