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.

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.

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!
