I wish we could have come to solstice sooner. The meal was amazing and so delicious. Everything we had from the pig tail and rabbit saddle to the wine and cocktails was so tasty. I highly recommend everyone to check out this little gem before it closes. I’m sad I didn’t get to try it in the summer or spring. Thanks for making my husband’s birthday very memorable. Sad to see you go from the Edmonton food scene.

I had the lamb shank and it fell off the bone, so delicious! My husband and I were disappointed to learn that this restaurant might not be open for much longer so I would highly recommended that anyone try it while they can!

I heard that Solstice will be closing in order to reorganize. I hope not -- it remains one of my favourite fine dining restaurants, and if I had the metabolism for it, I would eat there every week.

I had an amazing anniversary dinner here. We had the wild boar rillette and the rabbit saddle as appetizers, the pickerel as a main course and the chocolate mousse for dessert. Everything was outstanding, the pickerel was cooked just right and the sauce on top was amazing. They also had good wine and cocktails. All in all it was a great experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to come back!

Hidden gem - outstanding food in a small neighbourhood bistro with a cozy ambience. Fantastic value for money. Menu changes with the season. Had the venison from the winter menu which was simply outstanding, my partner had the lamb - equally succulent. Beautifully presented with accompanying vegetables and interesting accompaniments. Only potential downside was not a lot of choice for vegetarians - this is a carnivore's menu.

Was my second visit here and it didn't disappoint. Food and service were excellent.
Got the squash soup, tuna, beef chuck, and wild boar to start and they were all very good. Beef and tuna were tender, pork was good. Everything was seasoned well and was ok point. I got the lamb shoulder for my main and it was amazing. Very tender and the orzo was very good. Would recommend this place to anyone in Edmonton. Prices are good.

Had a very pleasant dinner from this consistent and dependable spot. They've really up'd their cocktail game and was amazed by the Cauliflower Milk Punch (vegan friendly!). The poutine croquettes are worth going for alone, great beef dishes, I was a little dispointed by the duck confit fettuccine for the lack of big chucks of duck - there's lots of duck but it's pulverized into the sauce. All round good spot though that deserves the 'hood's support.

Simply perfect.

I could go on forever about the food itself; the beef, lamb, venison, salmon - no matter the meat it's phenomenal, and even more spectacular is the dish that's created around it.

The cocktails are superb, the espressos and cappuccinos are delectable, and the wine. My God, the wine.

It's not just about the food though - the service is exquisite, somehow remaining incredibly knowledgeable without being pretentiousness.

Solstice is a must-eat if you're in Edmonton longer than two hours.

Went with company of 3 and we each shared main courses and appetizers and needless to say everything we each sampled was good and everything we ate from one another plate we each would have bought on our own accord so very impressed as it didn't seem what you ordered it was delicious. For portion size 2 of my friends were filled and had to get a carry out dish while the other was left wanting, but all in all believe it was fair. The drinks, as well was a very nice touch, and very tasteful. Would definitely recommend it for a fine dining experience for a couple, group outing, or event. Well met, well played.

Food was delicious but service and ambiance were average. Took almost 10 minutes to be greeted/water filled once seated at table and waitress seemed to ignore us unless she had to give us food/debit machine. Also beer was served in chilled glasses (which generally you should avoid). Overall since experience is expensive you would expect a more polished presentation, so slightly disappointed, however thank you for the experience.

Fabulous dining experience! Our taste buds were on overload! Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu, ingredients and preparation of the dishes. Her description of each item made it an adventure worth waiting for. Even though the atmosphere is cozy casual, don't let that fool you for the exceptional culinary artistry you will experience!

Food was delicious, crafted with a lot of care. Presentation was magazine-worthy. But..... the plain surroundings, dark plain chairs, and cheap dark wall panelling gave the restaurant a cold feeling. I wanted to see some warm wood tones and perhaps carpet. It was not inviting in the least. I know this is a low-budget neighborhood evening venue, but I'll take my wife to something with great food and ambiance, sorry. :(

After tasting the food items Solstice had at Tatse of Edmonton, we knew we had to visit their location. I was disappointed that the risotto from Taste wasn’t on the menu but the rest of the food did not disappoint! We have a beef chuck appetizer to start. The poutine croquettes were DELISH!

Our main course menu was also very tasting. I was very happy with my venison. It was cooked to perfection with delicious sides.

The service was great. Our server was friendly with lots of knowledge on the food. We felt well taken care of. The only down side was the decor/ambiance that we didn’t feel represented the vibe of the menu and the dining experience. However we won’t let that stop us from devouring their entire menu! We will be back and we look forward to their next seasonal menu change.

Really enjoyed our recent dinner at Solstice. The service was excellent and the food extremely good and beautifully presented. I was a little disappointed in the wine list as I’m a Chardonnay lover and there wasn’t one on the list. Also the restaurant was on the noisy side which made conversation a little difficult, especially for someone with a hearing deficit. That said, I would definitely recommend Solstice and would probably return if visiting Edmonton again.

What a treat! My first time visiting this unique eatery and it won’t be my last. The detail exacted on every dish is a feast for the eyes first, then a feast for the palette.

We had a meat appetizer, the squash soup, a chicken dish, and salad that came with tiny edible flowers. A berry roll finished the meal.

Our waitress was attentive and quick. We also appreciated the description of each plate by the server.

Prices are on the high side, so make this a special treat.
