Plan your next event here! – I just don't know where to begin. I reserved the lounge for a private party and couldn't have been more pleased from the planning to the execution. We had about 30 close friends and family celebrating a milestone birthday. The food came out of the kitchen flawlessly (thank you Mike!) and it was all so good. The gorg mac and cheese, the baby back ribs and the sliders seem to be the favs but all of the food was great. And a special shout out to our bartender, Lauren. She was amazing. Kept the drinks flowing with such a friendly and upbeat attitude. The lounge has a local casual but elegant feel, the service is amazing and great food. Seriously, plan your next event/celebration here!
Cool looking place with a nice buzz. Good food and drinks. – Great looking place with a nice buzz. Good food and drinks. My only complaint would be the ridiculously meager measures of wine, for a rather high price. Literally a third of a small glass for $9 a pop! I asked about it and received a firm ?that?s our standard here? okidoki then! Cant argue with that! Personally, there are better places out there for the cost.
This Pacific Heights eatery boasts an upscale atmosphere and a California-influenced small plates menu. – In Short
Dark, spacious booths line the enormous storefront windows, and undersized tables dot the hardwood floors of this stylish boite. Standout dishes include a Gorgonzola mac-and-cheese and french fries served with three distinctive dipping sauces. Tempura fish tacos, a hanger steak with scallion mash and a charcuterie plate of sopressata, ahi tuna tartare and sauteed mussels are among the other offerings.
20-Something meat-market scene – Thurs-Sat in the evenings is a meat-market scene for the 20-somethings, so go another night if that's not your thing. The mac and cheese is tasty along with the sweet potato fries, but I was just there recently and they removed one of my favorites from the menu (fish tacos). Bring them back!
I love this place! – They have my favorite drink ever (the la real, try it!), their mac and cheese is awesome, and the atomsphere is relaxed and inviting. Perfect place for a snack or a meal and a drink or two.
Nice atmosphere, food not so much – Very cute place, slightly less upscale than I was lead to believe but still very nice. Atmosphere is what this place is all about. However, my group did go for dinner. The food tasted pretty good, not exceptional, but creative and of what I thought was decent quality. Can't vouch for the other memebers of our group but my boyfriend and I were both ill when we woke up this morning and I was kept up all night with stomach cramps. So, despite the lovely atmosphere and delicious glass of Pinot Noir I had last night, I will not be returning.
cool friday or satuday night hangout – Nice atmosphere, small tables, small portions (but hey they're tapas). Very good rasberry mojito. mac & cheese, you'll be craving it all week long. Nice lounge/bar to go out with friends.
My fave bar/lounge – I love Solstice...the food is definitely good, but the main reason I love it here is the vibe and cool bartenders. I wish there were more places like this (part restaurant, part bar, part loungey) in the city...
Dreadful food – The best item we had was a tomato bisque which tasted like Cambell's soup. The Mac n' cheese with gorgonzola was too cheesy and topped with a strange combination of sour apples and old, funny-tasting nuts. By itself, the mac n' cheese would have been mediocre but it was virtually impossible to eat it without getting bites of apple/nuts. The basil risotto was nearly tasteless, very overcooked and gummy - basically inedible. Avoid this restaurant if possible.
yummmmmmmm, it is all good here! – Fantastic drinks and pizza!!! Service is superb and love the employees! Good times all around, especially during happy hour! A MUST in the city!
