Awesome food, great service, and an very nice atmosphere.
This was our first time and it was fantastic. The food was great. I would highly recommend
Very patient with elderly, forgetful person I brought for an occasion out
They do have an interesting enough menu, and a lovely wine selection. The food was very tasty. The server was pleasant, but totally overworked. We are usually pretty good about waiting when a restaurant is very busy. It is much easier to wait if you have a glass of wine and some bread on the table. Granted we were exhausted, so maybe we weren't our most patient selves, but it did take a LONG TIME to get our wine. All in all it was a nice meal. Oh I should mention that keep the A/C up very high. I was extremely chilly, even after moving tables to get away from a vent.
Food was amazing as always! It is our go to date night restaurant
We thought the food was good, and the ambiance was fine, nothing blazing about either, but certainly worth the money, and we'll go back. What was absolutely terrific was the service! We felt well taken care of by an entire team working together. Absolutely superior.
Food and service was great. Nice ambiance and great twist to comfort food.
I had the mixed greens salad and the pork Ossa Bucco. It was very well prepared and presented.
Bar- consistent. Blake is always professional
Can’t go wrong choosing this venue.
This is our second visit to Solstice Kitchen. We ate there in November of 2016 on a Southeast Vacation. We were in Columbia again and it was enjoyable enough the first time to have us go back a second time. We were not disappointed, and would definitely go back. Unique and creative menu, well executed.
We went here to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful experience! The server was very friendly and attentive. We had the fried oysters appetizer and they were warm and crunchy and melted in your mouth! We ordered two of the seafood specials. I had the swordfish special and it was very good. My husband had the red drum fish with shrimp etouffe on it and he said it was delicious! We also enjoyed our desserts . We will definitely return and will recommend it to friends!
Cocktails - Both Bartenders are very good. Good selection of Vodka. Can improve the Bourbon List and Wine List BUT still have more than adequate opportunities to try something new.
Appetizers- very good! Would prefer some health conscious items, but what they do serve is well seasoned, properly cooked, presented well and portioned appropriately.
Salads - nothing novel but great selection as far as salads go. Not over-dressed, nice flavor pairings, portioned appropriately and always fresh tasting
Entree’s - priced a bit higher but not egregious or burdensome for business meals or a night out. Here is where they excel. Always a great option on the specials menu to complement their usual dinner choices. I have had them all except the fried chicken (cannot do this at a fine dining establishment, personal choice). Well prepared, properly cooked and seasoned, comforting and reasonably presented (although this can be spruced up).
Overall one of the better restaurants I’ve been to in Columbia and I wouldn’t have reservations about stating one of the top 50 restaurants I’ve eaten at between the US and Europe.
One of the best restaurants I have been to in Columbia!
Good food. Nice ambiance. Great service. Would definitely visit again.
Good food, good service
Wonderful management and great service!
Food was really good and the service is great. The wine list is on the high side for a moderate bottle.
The swordfish entree was one of the best that I’ve ever had. Great Restaurant Week menu
Our meal was wonderful; however, I found our waitress a bit pretentious. She was attentive, but not as kind as our waitstaff usually are at Solstice.
It was restaurant week and it was packed. Atmosphere was loud, staff was rushed. The food was good. Only suggestion I can make is that ALL the staff should dress elegantly, not just the servers.
I have been to Solstice several times and is usually a good experience. My most recent visit was a bit disappointing. While the fish dish I ordered was ok it was extremely salty and overcooked. I am usually a fan of this atmosphere which is dressy casual but this too was a tad different. There were guest that were dressed more for a bar scene in tennis shoes, ball cap and jeans. There were also several young children. One child was in a car seat and cried for a good portion of the time we dined. These two observations are out of the owners hands but did diminish our dining experience. At this price point I was expecting a better atmosphere.
The restaurant week menu is great and we enjoyed everything we had! The oysters, spring rolls, swordfish, ribeye and dessert were all wonderful!
This is our local go to restaurant. Food is always delicious fresh and local
A must stop whenever we are in Columbia. Excellent food and an impressive wine list.
By far my favorite place in Columbia. The food is alway great and the service is excellent!
As always, a total pleasure! One of the very few top notch restaurants in Columbia
Best fried chicken ever! And the pork chop was heavenly. Can’t say enough about the main corses. Service was fabulous. It was a busy Saturday with some very loud parties near by (toddlers on one side and a woman with a really loud voice on the other). Restaurant seemed to turn up the music to cover it, so it was very loud. Hard to hear my date. Otherwise a great evening.
Restaurant week was great coming to this restaurant.
Not many options for Vegetarian!
Fried chicken was world class!
The food and service were excellent. Creative e menu and affordable.
I cannot say enough good things about the food, the service or the presentation!
