Great location, ocean views, healthy food that tastes great and yummy cocktails. The lunch specials are a great value. The kids menu isn't typical so not recommended for picky eaters.

We were seated upstairs at a tall table at an open window by the balcony as our initial choice, the balcony, had no shade. The wind became an issue and we were pleased that our waiter rolled down the window without being prompted. I had the pork belly Bennie. It was good although a little rich. The other dish came...

The name itself makes you feel mellow "Solace &The Moonlight Lounge". We started with cheddar biscuits which were fragrant, fresh and delicious. We had the clam chowder, burgers, veggie burger, hangar steak, and artisan grilled cheese sandwich. Every item was fresh, flavorful and fabulous. The chef is truly a lover of the farm to table mindset. The ambiance is very... More

Shared the meat and cheese platter - nice selection and enough for all. The Bibbage salad was perfect - don't forget to order the biscuits - I could have ate all of them. Very good ambiance and staff was great!!

Before Solace opened in north county, I was a frequent visitor of its sister restaurant Urban Solace. I fell in love with their unique, finely crafted comfort food and the warm, welcoming environment. When I learned that Solace was opening in Encinitas, I was ecstatic. Having visited a few times now, I can say that they've continued their fine tradition... More

Went for a Saturday night drinks + apps. Upstairs is a very chill, classy vibe. Oysters were fresh and delicious, knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Pleasing ambience and interesting menu - we particularly enjoyed the artisan platter (with select meats and cheeses); we now include a very similar platter at many of our dinner parties

To be fair, this restaurant is somewhere between average and very good. The prices are reasonable but not cheap. The food is good but not great. The service is friendly but not knowledgeable nor professional. When we were there, the restaurant was not crowded but the waitress didn't bring things we requested (like water). Food items were not what we... More

Had the opportunity to dine with friends at this fine establishment and for the second time my dinner was nothing short of perfect. I had the wild salmon dinner with fingerling potatoes and grilled lemon it was really great. Love the casual friendly atmosphere good underground parking and all in all great food. Gotta go
