Tried Sol Grill after reading reviews. Did not disappoint. Had blackened swordfish, wife had scampi. Both done well. Prompt service, good experience.

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

Very quaint restaurant with amazing food and service the entire menu sounded good. They have an excellent happy hour from 5-7. Definitely try the meatballs and the salmon. Great for romantic dinner or just impromptu dinner out!

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

Sol Grill is located in Newport Beach CA. We went there the other night for dinner. This was one of our favorite restaurants whenever in California. I was very disappointed especially with the service. It took almost an hour to get our appetizers. The Rack of Lamb that I ordered was not up to it's usual enjoyment. Maybe they had... More

Hi Bob! This is the second review we have gotten about both the lamb and service that reflects poorly on us. I'm very sorry to hear these were not up to par. Please consider coming back in, free of charge and let us prove to you that we were just having an off night and not the norm at Sol... More
