Solstice Kitchen has become our favorite special occasion restaurant. One of the best in South Carolina.
Ambience was fair. Very noisy. Our waiter seemed a little detached. We sent our appetizer back. The entrées were very good
We love Solstice and the good is always delicious, but our service was pretty bad tonight.
Great meal, service was attentive without hovering.
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.
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
You can’t go wrong by choosing Solstice for your dining. From the moment you are received to the drinks , appetizers, entree and desserts everything is world class and I mean it! Exceptional!
Hands down the best restaurant in Cola! Their main menu is amazing & the Executive Chef, Alan Boyle blows us away with his specials.
Always our “go to” place! We enjoy the food, the staff, and our table.
Always a wonderful neighberhood spot and it has maintained its standards .
Great service and food! The fried chicken and Gouda Mac are phenomenal! Hope to be back soon!
We love this place! We went a few times while I was pregnant last year and they always accommodated my needs. We went back for the first time since our little guy was born (9 months old!!!), and the manager remembered us, asked about the baby, and our server gave us free dessert!!! Love this place!!!
Best date ever
Always a pleasure dining here the food is great and never disappointed.
One of my favorites. Ricky and his team do a wonderful job. Seafood dishes were excellently prepared. Reserve wine list offered perfect pairings.
An overall excellent dining experience! The fried green tomatoes appetizer was delicious, and the short ribs were the absolute best I've ever had. I would definitely recommend Solstice Kitchen.
Came for an early Valentine's Day dinner and everything from the atmosphere to the service to the food were spectacular. The food was a bit expensive, but the value was exceptional.
Wonderful experience!! The server went to extra steps to make my wife's birthday and Valentine's special. This will be our " place " for special occasions and guests from out of this region!

We were in the area to celebrate our babymoon. We wanted a special date night, and Solstice delivered! Everything was delicious from our fried green tomatoes appetizer to our entrees to the delicious desserts! The chef even sent out a tasty little sample to all the guests of a new item he was working on. My husband also loved the particular Zinfandel that our server picked out to go with his food. Would definitely recommend, and we’d love to return!
Tables we so close together you could hear everyone’s conversations. More like a cafeteria experience than fine dining. We chose your restaurant to celebrate our 40th anniversary. It is as certainly not an intimate evening. Not worth $130 for two.
Had a fantastic meal here with my friend for a girls' night out. Loved the scallop ceviche special! Delicious and very creative. Fantastic service and A+ food.
Solstice Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbia. The service is great. Portions are hearty and the food is incredible.
Solstice Kitchen is a hidden gem and MUST TRY restaurant! My friends and I make a reservation every time we visit Columbia. Unique food options, great service and delicious desserts. There’s nothing you won’t love!!!!
Very cozy atmosphere, attentive staff and delicious cuisine. Made reservations online for my boyfriend's birthday, they called day of to confirm. We arrived 15 minutes early, they knew our names, immediately showed us to our table, which I had requested a quite, out of traffic, romantic if possible seating and they accommodated us nicely with a corner table with bench seating and pillows. Our server was very knowledgeable, friendly and checked in frequently. We began with the fried green tomatoes, spread with pimento cheese and sprinkled with I believe it was candied bacon served with a bed of greens which were divine. Perfectly sliced and crispy. I had the crab cakes which were delicately seasoned so as not to overpower the succulent, flaky crab and the yellow grits were smooth and creamy. He ordered the braised beef rib with parmesan and truffle potatoes that were crisped to perfection and it was juicy, flavorful and cooked to perfection. The kitchen sent us a complimentary tasting of their mushroom bisque which was one of the best dishes I have had in my life and paired perfectly with the semolina bread. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a date or nice evening out.
Food and service are always good. We were a party of five this time and we had been seated at a table for four which our waiter quickly corrected on a busy Saturday night!
Excellent in all respects. High-end dining experience.Quality service and exquisite meal. Definitely a destination in the future.
Probably our favorite Columbia restaurant even though we have to drive from Lexington.
Consistently excellent food and service.
Snagged last minute reservation. Oysters were wonderful- plentiful, fresh, lightly battered and succulent. For entrees- crab cakes, salmon, short rib and ribeye. All were enjoyed!!
Great food, great service. Perfect for a date night.
Excellent as always. One of favorite places. We got the lamb shank special and it was Devine. The oyster appetizer is my favorite!
We met some dear friends for dinner on Saturday night. The wine list was excellent. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. It's a fairly small room so the tables are packed in a little tight, and the noise level is a bit high, but the food and wine were both top notch.
The table we had was perfect quiet and very delightful. Our waiter was so nice and so professional.
It was the best meal all 3 courses we have had at restaurant week. Thanks so much. Staff was outstanding
