Excellent dinner. I will go again and encourage friends to do the same.
We did the 3 course special for restaurant week. Seated by the manager who greeted us and made us feel valued. Great first two course choices and we were too full for desserts so we carried our cheesecakes home! Our entree was a chef created flounder dish served over creamed grits. NE Columbia and surrounding areas continue to be treated to one of Columbia’s best restaurants. What a gem!
Thank you for coming in to visit during Restaurant week! We appreciate the kind review and hope to see you again soon!
We love Solstice. There was a loud table but that is out of the ordinary experience tbere
I love the ambiance. Nice background music with low lighting. Food is delicious! Solstice has been and still is the best Columbia has to offer for fine dining.
Thank you so much for the kind words! We hope to see you again soon!
Great night out. Enjoyed the food thoroughly.
The menu selections were good and seasonal. The waiter that we had was a bit slow to take the order and check on the table, but overall it was a good lunch experience.
Never had a bad meal. We feel it is the best restaurant in Columbia
Thank you so much! We appreciate this awesome review and hope you will come back to see us soon!
Perfect local place for a special occasion meal. We had suburb service from Allison, and the meal was excellent.
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed it. Allison is a great one! Come back soon.
Duck was excellent. Ribeye cooked to perfection. We will be back.
Thank you for the kind words, Rick. We appreciate the review and look forward to seeing you next time!
Provided some of the most unusual dishes we have had in a long time. The amous bouche was a flavor explosion that proved black eyed peas could be made to taste sumptuous. Brussel sprouts appetizer that would make a very good entree for vegetarian. Pork and cheese egg roll tasted wonderful but cheese needed to be dispersed more to avoid a molten hot spot. Flounder was very delicately crumbed and nicely crispy. Boneless pork chop tasted good but was not very tender. These minor points were what kept it from being a PERFECT meal but the chef's touch was obviously in a class that justified Best in State ranking in the past. Long drive from home but we will fondly remember this meal.
We had yet again, a wonderful experience. All of the staff was polite, professional and very accommodating. We will definitely go back.
Thank you for the kind words!
Went for date night. Short rib was phenomenal!
Thank you for the kind words. We're glad you enjoyed the it!
Really good food
We have been about 8 times
Back and forth from Florida
We greatly appreciate your patronage, and look forward to seeing you on your next trip!
As the risk of being redundant, I will say again... Solstice is the best local restaurant and we are blessed to have it in our area. The food is delicious and service is perfect.
Thank you so much!
Solstice has been our favorite local restaurant as we dine here frequently and normally rate all 5*. However this evening was not quite up to par, maybe due to New Years crowd. The fried oysters which we have had many times were small and overcooked. The filet mignon which I had seemed dry and overcooked for med rare. My wife had the short ribs which were very good and I have enjoyed several times in the past. The banana dessert was good but seemed different than in the past.
We do apologize that it seemed off that evening. Even being the busiest night of the year, we pride ourselves in remaining consistent. Thanks so much for your patronage and we look forward to being spot on during your next visit!
We had only dined at Mr. Friendly's, which has become our favorite restaurant in Columbia. So during the holidays, we decided to give Solstice a try since it is closer to our home. Although similar, each restaurant has a unique vibe and menu variation. However, both have one thing in common. Total Awesomeness on every level.
Thank you so much, we try and stand out a little from them! We look forward to your next visit!
Our waiter was attentive and helped with some amazing menu recommendations!! The wine list is great with good wines at all price points. The menu was creative with excellent, balanced spice combinations.
My husband and I can’t say enough good things about our evening!
Thanks so much for the kind words, we look forward to your next visit!
Amazing as always!
Everything was delicious as usual. Hard to pick a favorite but I could take a bath in the Thai green curry sauce!
We agree, Chef Alan's curries are amazing
Best Pork Chop I’ve ever had. Wonderful char and cooked to perfection. Every dish was very good and service was attentive and warm. Easily our favorite restaurant in all of Columbia and will continue to visit every time we’re in town.
Thank you so much Joseph, we look forward to seeing you again!
Awesome as always!
Excellent as usual!! Allison was our waitress and you could not ask for anyone better, if you go please ask to be seated in her section as you will be well taken care of.
Allison is a great one! Thank you for your patronage!
Always enjoy the food at Solstice. Service was excellent. Going back twice in next two weeks.
Thank you for your patronage!
Birthday celebration for best friend! Awesome service and food!
The person who served us was great, Adrian.
Thanks so much Dee!
First time there, won’t be the last. Great food, great place! Our server, Jessie, was fantastic.
We look forward to your next visit, and you can ask for Jessie then if you like!
The staff was friendly, conversational and knowledgeable. The menu was great, and our orders were filled quickly. All four in our party were very pleased with our selections. In short, it was a great dining experience for us all.
Thank you for the kind words! We look forward to your next visit!
Great time with my company. Great food.
Food is always excellent. My only criticism is I was unable to get bartenders' attention to get a drink while standing at the bar. I gave up and waited for my table. This was only time it happened to me.
Thank you Alana, we do apologize about that!
Always great food and great service. A neighbor favorite!
Dined with a vegan friend and while the chef was happy to put together a vegan plate, it only consisted of green beans, asparagus and fries. Understand vegans are annoying, but thought a restaurant/chef of your caliber would have a bit more to offer for her. Non-vegan food was awesome - best steak my sister has had in years and loved the short rib dish!
Thanks so much for the kind words! We have a vegetarian option every night, but we do not regularly have vegan guests so do not always have a full option prepared for them. If you would like to call a day in advance next time we can plan you a true vegan meal out and are happy to do it!
you can always expect a great mean and great service whenever you go
Thanks Mike, we look forward to your next visit!
Excellent restaurant. We had an outstanding meal and service.
One of the best restaurant in town.
Very good service and food.
Thanks David, we try and keep it up!
Great birthday dinner experience. My husband enjoyed himself. The lentil and sausage soup was amazing and I enjoyed the BBQ spring rolls w/coleslaw and cola sauce (it was perfect altogether). We ordered the red snapper special and the 35$ ribeye well done. The portion size was perfect. We both opted for the mac n cheese I didnt like the gouda mac n cheese as much as I expected, the penne pasta that was used was too thick an the sauce though flavorful was thick it just ended up tasting pasty which took a way from the flavor of the bacon. The ribeye I ordered well done came medium rare to which my husband loves so no complaints. Thank you again for making my husband's night special.
We are glad you had a great time!
Always great! The food and service are consistently excellent! We are so happy to have Solstice on our side of town. It's worth a long drive to go to as well!
Thank you for the kind words!
Great as always! We have never had a bad experience in over 10 years of going to solstice .
Thanks Rod! We will see you guys soon!
Always a favorite in our book! Delicious seasonal farm to table menu that constantly changes. Highly recommend for any special occasion or Friday night.
Thank you so much!
