We usually visit this local restaurant quite regularly and the food and service has always been good. Visited last Saturday though for a family celebration and five out of nine of us were very ill afterwards. The service that night was slow and the food came out cold. Had to keep sending stuff back. New staff looked not to be... More

I've been going to Solomons for a number of years. The wait for a table is not unusual and I do wonder if it is a deliberate ploy to get you drinking at their small bar beforehand. My latest trip was disappointing and I think they are losing their focus. When ordering, we had this irritating waiter trying to "upgrade"... More

I was part of the same birthday group mentioned in Chris 8295's review. This restaurant does not know how to deal with a large booking. We were a party of 19 and expected to be given a set menu. However when we FINALLY sat down we had the full menu in front of us. There is no way you can... More

We arrived for a Birthday booking and got there for 7 on the dot. The que was out the door but explained that we had a table booked for a large party. We weren't shown to our table until 7:30 and orders for food taken at 8:30. They had accommodated for too many people on the night and were very... More

Visited Solomans or had take out approx 20 times as their food has been excellent. The service however is another matter; a table had always been booked in advance/take out ordered over the phone, and not once have I been seated/the food been ready on time, to the extent of waiting an hour to be seated on one occasion. Once... More

As a party of eight we visited the restaurant on a Friday evening, the staff were attentive and friendly explaining the menu. The food was tasty well prepared and at a reasonable cost, the service was good but not rushed. On the down side, there is little ambience no table cloths or anything else to lift it from a canteen... More
