Had dinner reservations on Sunday at 5 p.m. to meet old friends. We hadn't seen each other in a couple of years. Our server was very patient as we caught up with each other, after a half hour of catching up she suggested some appetizers, she was well spoken, and accommodating, we started with meat and cheese platter to pair...

At this point we wold not go back. Even the most basic things are not in place such as the food being hot when served, vegetables being severely overlooked and meat not being cooked as requested. All of this makes her very unpleasant meal when one of us has to start eating while the other one has to sit there... More

Must try everything and a side of more. Whether its for a weekend brunch, lunch, happy hour, or dinner... It's all AMAZING! Tequila Mule is my go to, Chop Chop app, and Grilled Cheese (Yes!) are my staples. I've had just about everything at this point and you really can't go wrong. Sundays are always special as they have live... More

Solace has a great menu of food and cocktails. Everything is really really good. I recommend the chowder en a cup and the duck confit! Delicious. And also, a must, is their cucumber Moscow mules - very good! If you want to experience a little more action, then it's worth the wait to get a table upstairs!

Service was great and the food was average for the price. My daughter couldn't even get a lemonade refill without getting charged again. The bread was also an extra charge.

Cheese and meat tray was excellent. The spiced honey and fig jam are over the top. Cheddar and chive biscuits with tomato jam really good. Beef cheek was tender and cooked to perfection. Service was way over the top, perfect to say the least.

I live within walking distance of this restaurant but have been out of the country for 5 months. Went there a few days ago for a welcome home celebration. I love the fact that this menu changes. The favorites are still on the menu but there are new entries as well. The service was excellent and food delicious. Good vegetarian... More

Ordered the cheddar and chive biscuits with orange honey butter and tomato jam. So delicious. They also have a great array of different brands of liquor that made for some excellent drinks.

Good food but the waiters kept bring the wrong food to the wrong tables! This happened the last three times I was there!! Still a fun place to hang out though.

I came here with my friend for dinner the other night. I've drove by this place before and never noticed it. My friend heard good things about it. I'm glad we came here as the food is quite good. I started out with the clam chowder which was excellent. I got the beef cheeks which was also really great. The... More
