Food and service...top notch!
Apr 19, 2019: "Rustic French bread” served before dinner was simply very stale. If you don’t have anything good to serve, please don’t. Then the chef sent some treats from the kitchen. Two stale dough filled with tasteless consistency of a popped zit. Again, if you don’t have anything good to serve, please refrain. I wish the chef or the manager oversaw what was leaving the kitchen and headed for the tables. They hopefully would have stopped it.
The cheese platter, for $14 was a surprise, and not a good one. A few samples of cheese with a tiny bit of strawberry preserve and a barely visible smear of honey. Oh, forgot, and a 1/4 of strawberry. Good margin on that and zero effort.
The main dishes macaroni and cheese and a salad were decent.
Service was decent. My daughter felt bad for the waitress. After barely tasting the "rustic bread” and then presented with inedible cheese cups, she felt sorry and wrapped the cups in a napkin and threw them in the bathroom garbage. I would have complained but teenagers do not like their parents to make scenes.
Would never come back.
Our party had two of the fish dishes (halibut and red snapper) and the veal Osso Bucco. Wine suggested was perfect for the table. Desert was cream brûlée’s cheese cake. Aswesome!
Food was excellent! Would definitely recommend and I'm pretty picky.
Food was fabulous as always! The pork springroll appetizer is a go-to and did't disappoint. I tried the halibut special which was wonderful and the group loved the creme brulee cheesecake! Impeccable service as ways, too.
Wonderful dining experience! We got seated right away, The waiter was attentive and personable and the food was fresh and delicious. I ordered a cocktail which was great and looked awesome as well. Highly recommended!
What a find !!! We were in town for the Masters,staying across the street at the Holiday Inn Express. We ate here both nights and were beyond pleased !! The specials were different both nights. We had the snapper,halibut,filet,crab cakes and the worlds best pork chop !! Price were fair and the food and service were excellent !!
We really enjoyed our meal at Solstice and our server, Cameron, was a delight. Of particular note, my wife (who is a curry snob!) had the curry appetizer special and said it was one of the best she has ever had. A nice wine selection, good food and excellent Service. We will definitely be back when our travels take us to Columbia, SC
Great experience with great food and service!
Solstice Kitchen was outstanding as always. We are a frequent diner here. For this visit, we both had soft shell crab as starters....delicious. For entrees I had sea bass on a bed of very tasty grits, outstanding. Wife had duck duo, and she said it was the best she had ever had.
That duck was unbelievable, and whenever we have soft shells they are a must. Thank you for your kind words John, and we hope to see you again soon!
I love this restaurant! This is my favorite place in Columbia. I enjoy the ambiance, the service and the food. I’m glad they are a small establishment as it allows for the great experience
We are so glad that you enjoyed everything, thank you!
Fantastic service and the best food we have ever had!
Thank you so much!
Solstice was outstanding! This was our second visit. We returned have dinner after a day out in Charlotte. The hosts and staff were very attentive and the food was fabulous. The Curry dish was the nest I have had in many years - Definitely recommend!
Chef Alan's curry is amazing, we can't get enough! Thanks so much, we hope you stop by again soon!
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Appetizer and entrees were served promptly and the service was attentive and friendly. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for the kind words!
Great food and service. Our waiter, Jake, was fantastic and gave great advice on our menu choices. The braised beef short ribs were the best I’ve ever had. We will definitely be back.
Thank you so much, Jake is a great one! We can't wait to see you back in!
Some of the best Soft Shell Crab I’ve had lately .
This is one of my all time favorites for lunch. This was a very busy day, but, the food was fabulous as usual.
Thanks so much, we're glad the food was up to our standard!
We had an excellent meal an dour waiter was efficient and courteous. The amuse bouche was a delicious gazpacho, however it was served in small, stainless steel cup. It would have been a more attractive presentation if the soup had been served in a demitasse or something else.
Overall, it was a lovely evening.
Thank you so much, we are glad that you had a great experience!
Excellent service, environment and atmosphere, convenience
Thanks so much!
Great food, great service, great ambience
It is always my go to place -it’s always an enjoyable experience.
Beautiful restaurant! I had the salmon and wasn’t impressed with it. The grits however were amazing.
Ambience was fair. Very noisy. Our waiter seemed a little detached. We sent our appetizer back. The entrées were very good
Solstice Kitchen has become our favorite special occasion restaurant. One of the best in South Carolina.
We love Solstice and the good is always delicious, but our service was pretty bad tonight.
We are so sorry that you had this experience and truly hope that you will come back for our amazing food and give the service another chance. Thank you for your review and have a great day!
Great meal, service was attentive without hovering.
Thank you! We hope you come back soon!
Solstice kitchen is our favorite restaurant and our first choice for special occasions. We have always had a fantastic meal and the best of the best service! Thank you for being in the Northeast.
Thank you so much for the review!
Solstice kitchen has been a favorite of ours since they opened. The service and atmosphere is perfect when celebrating any occasion or just having dinner with friends and family. Great food too!
Had a very nice night out with my wife at Solstice. We both had a soup to start and my wife had the duck and I had the short rib. Both were delicious. The short rib was so tender that a knife was not needed. We followed up with the chocolate/peanut butter bread pudding which you have to try to believe.
The wife and I love this place. The food is always fantastic, the ambiance is perfect, and the service is never bad. My favorite meal is the French onion Fillet you can never go wrong.
Celebrating many things !!
Always a delicious meal here - great service, interesting and good food, just loooud at prime times.
The menu has changed since our last visit. My favorite item was missing. Nonetheless, the food was still very delicious!
Food was okay -- not great. Service was spotty.
Restaurant nearly empty when we arrived so 'busy' is not an applicable excuse.
We had the best experience, the food was wonderful, the service was exemplary and the overall feel of the evening left us so pleased we chose Solstice for a gals evening out.
Great food,excellent service always a pleasure to eat there
