Quaint and funky decor creates atmosphere, (ok, a chandelier in the corner at head height but it works) painted in warm colors to stimulate your appetite. The food is exceptional for what you might expect from the humble surroundings! Upon arrival all tables were taken so we started at the bar, (ordered our meals there too) once a table opened...

Tiny, amazing restaurant in Newport. It's a local/ tourist favorite. Given their location, they don't have to be as good as they are! MUST TRY the filet mignon meatballs. NOTHING BETTER! Recommend Sol Sald with Ahi Tuna... to die for! Baseball cut steak is out of this world. Really outstanding cuisine. I you go weekdays 5-7 there's a twilight menu.... More

Happy hour dining is flourishing in many restaurants, but Sol Grill extended Tuesdays to all evening. And a very talented guitarist played top hits unplugged and virtuoso. The service was attentive and easy going. The menu offered so many temptations, with the BBQ ribs very nicely done. The Seared Tuna appetizer was perfecto!

Small, friendly, and down to earth restaurant a short walk from the beach. Delicous food - try the salmon or lobster ravioli. We were visiting from the east coast and looking for a delicious, home-cooked meal and a chill, relaxing atmosphere to enjoy dinner. This place delivered!

Came here with a friend of mine to celebrate his graduation from physical therapy school after a recommendation from my boss. The restaurant is located in McFadden Plaza on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, right next to Baja Sharkeez and with 21 Oceanfront across the street. There's a parking lot in the middle of the plaza, but it can... More

We liked the exterior look of Sol and the hotel receptionist said it was good, so we booked. What a disaster. After 45 minutes my wife's starter arrived followed by mine 30 minutes later. The manager apologised and said the starters would be free. I cut into my shrimp to find it raw. I sent it back. Another 30 minutes... More

OUr first time here was a great experience. We had a Groupon, which in some restaurants means a limited menu, but not here.The meatball appetizer had a reduction sauce that was wonderful. They could put the meatballs and sauce over pasta and present it as an entree. I had the filet mignon, and it was tender, juicy and overall delicious.... More

Dined at Sol with our Newport Based Friends (One of their favorite restaurants). Food and service were very good! Atmosphere is inviting with interesting art work in a relaxed setting. Complete upside surprise on a Wed Eve in March was an excellent, enjoyable, guitar player. Thank you!
