Unfortunately, Solo did not survive. The restaurant was nice, but it has closed it doors. As one of Jimmy Buffett's songs goes, "in the tropics, they come and they go."

You are correct - we are closed. I recently sold the business and the new owners just opened under a new name this past weekend. Your quote from Jimmy Buffet's song is correct but does not apply here. I still own my other successful restaurant on Duval Street - Grand Cafe. Thank you for your post but please get your... More

It was happy hour and hot, we sat on the shaded front porch and proceeded to order assorted items from the menu.... each dish filled our hollow spots, and how could I forget the multiple signature cucumber cocktails. They made bike riding a whole new experience.

We had a lovely dinner of shared plates on the cozy outside patio here. Our server was attentive and helped us choose a wonderful assortment of foods: prosciutto wrapped asparagus, seafood lettuce cups and smoked duck & gouda flatbread - yum! Everything was great and our server made a killer coffee drink for dessert. The inside of the restaurant was... More

Since i arrived to Key West a year ago, i have being coming to this place for different reasons. Drinks are great! The bar looks good and the bartenders seem to know what they are doing. Food is perfect! Our favorite is the Adobo Grouper and the Sea Food flat bread. Our favorite desert is Créme Brulée; You must have... More

I found this place on the verge of tears in the midst of an unfortunate experience with an adventure sailing charter company. Basically I had just dumped $1,595 into the gulf of Mexico. One of those really, really expensive life lessons. Anyway, did I mention the margaritas at this place really helped save the day here!? I was able to... More

This place is a new favorite. We walked in late and they said they'd keep the kitchen open. I appreciated them caring enough to get some quick orders in before they closed the kitchen. The food was excellent. Even the beet salad was great. Usually when you order a salad they give you a head of lettuce with a little... More

We loved this restaurant and thought it had the best food in Key West! The atmosphere is great, we sat outside with our grand sons! It wasn't overly busy inside, which was a shame, but it's not on the Main Street, not far off it though. We definitely had the best food we'd had on our whole trip. I would... More

There were only two people sitting at the bar when we came in... And had to wait almost 10 mins to sit. This place had decent food but kinda pricey. We shared crab cake sliders and conch fritters.

American Bistro food. Did not like that they had FOI GRASS, however, their seafood salad as a appetizer and their seafood flatbread (pizza) was great. The other thing we tried was the Short Ribs which fell of the bone. Service was a little slow, but still fun to go after dark!

Stopped in early evening for dinner with the family. The decor was very nice with large spaces to comfortably wait for a table. Not needed as the place was practically empty. This is usually a bad sign for a restaurant in Key West! we went ahead and got a table anyway and were very glad we did. From the fantastic... More
