My friends and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our recent graduation. I had to call twice running very late because traffic was so bad driving from Niagara to Mississauga and they were very accommodating and understanding which I think was very kind of them.

Half price wine Wednesday that I had seen advertised on social media said all bottles excluding house wine were half off. The wine menu on the website differed from the one that we were given which excluded many wines which was a little dissapointing but we found an alternative which we enjoyed very much.

The appetizers were okay...we had a green salad, suppli alla romana, and truffle fries.The restaurant describes itself as a modern style italian restaurant but the menu seems to be confused by that definition. One of us had the grilled salmon which was served with basmati rice...not italian but she enjoyed it non the less.
Another had Strozzapretti alla vodka and there was so much sauce it was soupy and the pasta was overcooked.
Final main on the table was Spanish Paella... this was an awful dish and I left over half of it. The whole thing was aggressively overcooked. The mussels were overcooked to such an extend they were shrivelled and tiny. The chicken looked like it was chopped chicken added later, only 2 shrimp and a few pieces of chorizo and calamari all mixed in with overcooked rice....$30 for that dish! Very dissapointing.
My virgin cocktail was $7 literally lime juice, simple syrup and soda water and my cappuccino was just a regular coffee which was a telling finish to a mediocre meal.

Server was friendly but was removing my plates before asking if I was finished and then she would ask which at that point its too late. Also removing plates while others are still eating. Lack of attention to detail was obvious as no quality checks or refined steps of service that one would expect from a restaurant and wine bar.
Drove a long way and spent a lot of money. Wouldn't recommend and wont be returning.

Great food. Good wine, knowledgeable and keen staff. Even a great place can have bad luck, but not last night.

The room design does increase ambient noise. If you wish to hear pins drop, may not be your place. If you enjoy be surrounded by happy conversations and a big Italian family, it’s your place. We will return for sure

This was my first time at Solstice, and I will be returning for sure. I went with a friend on a Tuesday night so naturally it was very quiet. However the ambiance and set up of the restaurant was much nicer than I had expected. Our waitress was fantastic and really was so personable.
The food was delicious and fairly priced.
Overall I have no complaints and will be looking forward to visiting again.

Went there for my Birthday. All the staff were very helpful. Food was amazing. Definitely will be going back.My wife had the special and I had the chicken Piccata. Warm olives we're the best I've had in a restaurant. The suppli rice balls we're just like the way my wife's family make's them, very light not greasy.

The ambiance was great! I had been waiting to try this restaurant. The pictures on Instagram were tempting. My friend had the goat cheese and mushroom risotto, it was delicious. I had the spaghetti pescatore, I found the scallops and shrimps were over cooked and a bit bland. When I come back I’ll for sure have the risotto.

Solstice was showing a 4.7 rating so we thought we'd try it. Its meant to be an Italian restaurant but I think the chef is still learning Italian cuisine. The bolognese sauce was dismal, the risotto was drenched in oil. Service was good though hence why I left it at 2 stars rather than less.

Calamari and salad were great starters.
The main course was very good. We had risotto and penne pasta. Tiramisu for desert did not disappoint.
Very good food for the price. Inside is welcoming and well done. Would recommend and eat there again.

Service Overall Good.
Highlight was Calamari that was very tasty. One of the best we've had. Shrimp Cocktail was good but pricey.
Main courses. A "special" Veal Medalions with Shrimp served with roasted potatoes and vegetables. Temperature of the meat was low and the potatoes and vegetables had barely any warmth in them. Too bad, could have been a tasty dish especially for the price. The other main was a pasta with a bolognese sauce. Very little shape to the sauce and should have been served with a garlic crustini or such.
Too bad. Chose this as a nice place to enjoy our Anniversary. One chance to make a good first impression. Missed the mark.

Great service and food was fine, we went there for seafood and had their paella. It did include chorizo, which was a nice tasty addition, as I do eat meat occasionally.

The patio has limited seating and music wasn’t loud, which was exactly the kind of noise level you need if you want to hear your partner. The patio faces the parking lot, so don’t expect a great view
