Food was really good and the service is great. The wine list is on the high side for a moderate bottle.

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!
