Sensational food. Somewhat casual atmosphere.

We had Tuesday night dinner at Solbar. Their fried chicken (yes, fried chicken on Tuesday nights) family meal was amazing. First course salad had ten or more fine ingredients and the fried chicken main course was perfection. Along with the chicken came an array of fresh vegetables. The other diner... read more

We love this restaurant because of their different menu. My husband loves the sweatbreads. We have been coming here for years, his least favorite version is the bacon wrapped sweatbreads. The menu varies a lot and you need to be an adventurism eater, but everything is prepared well. We have discovered many great new wines from their wine list.

If in the area do make areservation and stop off here for a meal. The food and ambience are excelent and I really recommend it. My only small niggle is that the staff coud be considered "too attentive" , with too many enquiries as the whether "we were still enjoying our meal " !

Solbar has all the trappings of the best restaurants: complex menu, excellent service, beautiful setting, price. But the food is not quite up to the best--sometimes the complications don't serve the palate, but seem to be there for their own sake. Do you really need duck confit with your truffled egg? We had both a dinner and a breakfast here,... More

So, it's only one-star Michelin but that is still huge and we expected it to be at the same level as Auberge du Solei and Bouchon in Napa Valley, La Folie in SF, Madrona Manor in Healdsburg. No way. We were not able to discern how or why they got their rating. So yes, we had high expectations. Perhaps if... More

We had a wonderful dinner here which is part of a spa, although we were staying in a nearby town. The food and wine did not disappoint, and the service was superb. I had hoped to sit in the beautiful terrace, but it was not open (a little chilly). I highly recommend a visit!

This was our first meal in a long weekend getaway to celebrate our 25th anniversary so maybe our expectations were higher than usual. The food is based on Farmers Market-type ingredients and is southern-styled. But the restaurant reminded me of a plantation / beach resort, lacking warmth and intimacy. We tried the acorn squash soup ( good but not special),... More

Whats not to love about Solage and its perfectly wonderful restaurant. I am only sorry it was closed this trip for renovations and I didn't get to eat at Solbar! I love even walking through this property with the fountains, pools and gardens. To stay the night is a treat for the senses! They know how to make a room... More

This was an amazing experience. We had three days at the Solage, having rented a studio, and booked a few treatments. It is just fantastic. I was slightly nervous, imagining everyone would be super-fit and a bit posh, but it isn't like that at all. It is wonderfully friendly from the moment you check in, until you leave. The staff...

We stayed close by this elegant resort and drove over for supper on a late August evening. We walked through lovely grounds to find our table under the trees. A charming and knowledgable server hosted a delicious meal full of delectable locally sourced dishes served with grace. It was a charming evening with the hills in the distance as a... More
