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!

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.

Although the food was excellent the service was very slow. Our waitress was slow to take our food order and we didn't end up receiving our main course until 2 hours after we had ordered!

This was our first visit to Solstice ... on the Equinox, actually! We had browsed the menu in advance and thought everything sounded excellent. We weren't disappointed. My husband and I both ordered appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Everything was delicious. It was expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

My wife and I tried Solstice on a Saturday night, and it was very good. I am a carnivore and she is a vegetarian, and the small menu had great options for both of us. Our appetizers were especially good; I had the boar's cheek and she had the couscous. While it's not cheap, the food was well worth it. We had 2 appetizers, 2 main courses, and 2 glasses of wine, and it was just over $100.

Fantastic meal accompanied by great cocktails and a superb bottle of Cote de Rhone. Server Tim was knowledgable, helpful and unobtrusive, like all good server staff should be. He had good recommendations for drinks and meal choices and that made it a lovely evenimg overall. The food here is 10 out of 10.

This was an 11th hour decision to go out for dinner with good friends. We enjoyed:

Delightful service
Wine selected from a very good wine list...
Lovey presentations
Scrumptious mains...
But passed on deserts, tempting as they were.

We will be back.

This has been my favorite restaurant but this last visit was very disappointing. The portion size was tiny tiny. I will never order the striped bass again. Minimal vegetables - we had to order a cheese platter to feel even slightly satisfied. The noise level was off the charts. We couldn’t hear each other across the table without yelling. And....there was NO coffee. None!
