The here is excellent. Unique dishes and features to accompany their usual menu. For me, I love trying the specials they create. You can’t go wrong, try it!
We had a corner table that was perfect for a romantic dinner date. The food was excellent and the service was attentive without being intrusive. I was having such a wonderful time that I didn’t want to leave! Would definitely come back again!
Nice varied menu, good food, excellent service, not rushed to finish and leave.
This is a really nice place to dine. The room is big and open, so can be a bit loud, but not over the top. They do a really nice job with the food. Interesting menu, good combinations, well prepared and presented. Only small downside is because they are so busy, you wait a while for your wine. We have dined here three times now and have had to wait a bit too long each time for wine. Once we have wine and maybe a piece of bread on the table, we are happy to be patient on ordering and receiving dinner. Don't let this small thing detour you from an otherwise pleasant and tasty experience.
Just a Phenomenal meal. So enjoyed the service and meal options that are available. While we were not served out chef circe, it was not missed as we had plenty to fill our taste buds. The soft shell crabs are as good if not better than any restaurant on the coast of South Carolina. Such a great atmosphere for a date/dinner!
Amazing restaurant. Food was incredible. Our server Brittany was very professional and gave the best service we've ever had!
Only significant food issue was the highly touted soft shell crab which was highly over salted.
I love this place. It has been some years since I have been here, as I have lived out of the area for the last 10 years, but it is still as delightful as always. Excellent food, excellent wine and excellent service. Always a pleasure.
Everything was perfect
Wonderful food! Everything on the menu sounded delicious so it was hard to narrow our choices down. We are from out-of-town but this is our go-to when in Columbia.
The sample appetizer was wonderful. The Korean tacos were superb. All of the food was great. Service was outstanding.
The service level has declined. Our waiter arrived at the table and said ‘Can I get ya something to drink?’ There was no ‘Good evening, my name is xyz and I will be your waiter this evening’. After we placed our order for cocktails we were then asked for food orders. There was no ‘let me go over tonight’s specials’ or ‘would you like to order a wine?’ It was more an experience I have at Outback, not Columbia’s finest restaurant.
Please retrain the waitstaff on fine dining etiquette w your customers. It would be nice if the waiter offered to make suggestions rather than ‘what’s your order?’
Most perfectly seasoned beef patty we’ve ever had. Fish was perfectly cooked. Patio is fairly bare bones, could use some greenery. Super clean bathrooms. Servers were a bit aggressive, we were asked if we were ready to order 3 times by 2 different servers.
Every bite was delicious!!
Met with a Machine supplier
Food was affordable and delicious. Great farm to table seasonal menu along with the daily specials. I noticed they have nights where they provide babysitters while you eat otherwise it probably isn't the best place for kids. Highly recommend this place though!
Great food and service. John, Allie, Matt and Lindsay were outstanding today...as always.
So glad to see scallops back on the menu! They were outstanding!
I absolutely love this place! Every single time I come here hands down worth every penny. Food is delicious, mature crowd and the setting is just perfect. I have nothing to complain about this restaurant. Delicious!!
It was my anniversary 32 yrs which I stated in my reservation would have expected a more romantic placement
Salmon and grits dish was delicious! It's one of my staples. Will get the fried oysters on the next visit though.
It is always great.....best spot in Columbia
Fantastic venue for a birthday celebration.
I was great as always- ready for the scallops to return to the menu.
My go to place to eat in Columbia. Awesome for lunch as well as dinner. Quieter for lunch
Once again we were treated to a first class dining experience at Solstice. The bronzed trout was tasty and delicious, skillfully paired with polenta cake and succotash. The special Irish Stout short ribs and garlic mashed potatoes were a hearty St. Patty treat. The consistency and high culinary standards are remarkable at this Columbia gem.
Outstanding restaurant with great ambiance, food, service and quality!
Outstanding food and service as usual at our favorite neighborhood fine dining restaurant. Lamb shank entree was delicious...very tender and tasty .
Awesome as usual. Great food, ambience and service. Was a little chilly because the door was open
We had a fabulous time
Entire experience can be summed up to in one word...Great
My husband and I dine at Solstice Kitchen about 5 or 6 times a year. Each time we enjoy our meal and the atmosphere. We always look forward to our experience.
Shrimp and grits is over the top on lemon flavor. Dial back the lemon and it might be really good!
Great night out with family
Always great food
One of my favorite places to eat in the Columbia area. Always great food and service.
I enjoy fine dining and this is another occasion I would add to that list.
We waited roughly 15 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. The server was around but not hovering and very polite, which was great. The food was as good as expected and the price wasn’t as bad as we anticipated.
I have been to the restaurant several time over the years. I used to be consistently good but it really is a hit or miss kind of place based on my last 4 experiences. The last 3 times I have visited the vegetarian option were all Asian or Indian with similar ingredients. I ordered a fish dish during my last visit. The fish was cooked perfectly but was so salty I was difficult to eat. As a matter of face the last three meals I have had there were terribly salty. I have learned to order their sauces on the side as they add more salt in during the last visit the sauce was even too sweet with brown butter. For the price of the entrees there I just can not consider going back for a long while.
Always great food, service and atmosphere. My go to for a great meal on a date.
Food was outstanding. The service was the best in Columbia. Highly recommend!!!
