It has been replaced by yet another 'Oz Thai' restaurant. Very 'thairing' indeed. Solicit, despite the salacious name was such a lovely establishment serving interesting modern Australian fare. Lovely seasonal food like quails and Tasmanian lamb and beef Wonderful wines and exemplary service. What more can be said?

After reading so many amazing reviews I was so looking forward to trying Solicit. There is now a Thai restaurant in it's place which looks nice so I will return another time.

On Saturday night 27 July, the restaurant was packed full of Solicit friends, devotees and regulars as we marked the end of a great restaurant era with the closure of Solicit. Right to the end the food and service was five star as expected of Hobart’s best restaurant. The common comment amongst guests was “where do we eat now?” Joan... More

Food Wine & service was brilliant to the last! Fellow diners all seemed equally impressed. One diner rated the fish curry as the best he had ever had - this remonded me of a Melbourne friend who said the same thing to me late last year after tasting John's curried fish.

Booked here on the strength of Trip Advisor recommendations and were not disappointed. Solicit is not simply a place to eat, it has atmosphere, the food is great, presentation and range are excellent, service is top class, and the drinks range is extensive. We shared a "Five Tastes' entree, rather like a tapas approach, and then beef and pork mains:... More

I had the pleasure on Sunday of attending a long lunch at Solicit. The experience was delightful. We were greeted at the door and entered a warm, cosy inviting space. The food was extraordinary, innovative, cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. The service was exceptional. A wonderful restaurant experience I'd highly recommend to anyone.

We always love coming to eat here when we are in Hobart. Dined in the room with the fireplace so it was very cosy and warm on a cold evening. The food is always prepared with local fresh ingredients and the menu changes regularly so there is always something new to try. We will be back again.

We didn't know anything about this restaurant as we just walked past it - lucky they had a spare table as both the food & service was great and very tasty. We'll definitely eat here again next time we come to Hobart. I do have a small complaint to make though - when making famous well known cocktails make sure... More

To paraphrase Yogi this place is not your average restaurant. Our family of four (Mum, Dad, 7 & 11) went for a Mother's day lunch and had a great lunch. Even booking over the phone earlier in the week added to the experience with care taken about the kids and the suitability of the menu. Make sure your kids are... More
