Disappointing food quality and service for a Valentine’s dinner. Maybe better if they did not do buffet but service also was weak and wines not impressive. Also advertised dinner at $45 per person on their website but charged $55 without a word of explanation. No where near $55 value for dinner. Half glass pour both miserly and over-priced. When we were done, we just wished we had chosen somewhere else.

We spent our Valentine’s Day together there and it was amazing. We loved the food, the service and the overall atmosphere. We definitely plan on attending. You must get the paella!

A lively venue with great food and service and great wines that are made on the premises.
We really enjoyed our dinner there. They even had live music.

Brian, our server was fantastic! The best service!

Must have been an off night for the kitchen. Burger was burned. Steak for two was oddly over cooked (but still ok) but cold with the accompanying bread mostly burned. Chicken jidory got a negative review from our party. Service was good, and they were gracious enough to remove the burger from the bill. First bottle of wine wasnt great and we ditched it after a couple glasses, but the second was much better.

Solterra is always a stop when I visit family in Encinitas. The menu changes, so there are always new items--along with the favorites: charcuterie, olives, patatas bravas. The fish sandwich is outstanding, as is the beet salad.

I was not happy with Solterra this time. They had LIVE Music and it was so loud that i could barely here my friend who was sitting across the table from me. Also the cheese plate was bad.
stale yucky cheese. there are many better places in SD and in Encinitas

First time visit. Great place. Never had the wines so went with recommendations. Pretty good wine. I want to go back and try some other varieties. Liked the charcuterie but wished they had more meats/cheeses and less onions. Definitely a parking challenged place. Ended up in dirt across the street and no cross walk to cross over. But other then that, really looking forward to next visit.

A bit noisy from the street traffic to the occasional train blowing by, but still a fun spot to meet a date or for some afternoon/evening wine and small plates.

Great house Cabernet. Food was very good. The Brussel sprouts were over the top! 3 main dining areas, the bar was very loud, but the barrel side was quiet. Outside by the fireplace looked like a good date spot. Servers were knowledgeable and friendly. The person at the front was not very friendly.
