We returned to Solo Bistro in Bath for the third time last evening. After an early scare that our reservation might be bumped due to a problem with heating oil in the adjacent building, we were called and reassured by the maitre d that all was fine and they looked forward to our return.

The atmosphere at Solo Bistro is warm and comfortable with brick walls on two sides, and soft lighting. Our tip would be to make a reservation and ask for one of the 4 tables in the front window as they are the most "out of the way" and so the quietest. The other tables are not too close together, we... More

This restaurant is one of the best in the area, and has become our place of choice. We have frequently dined here and have never been disappointed. Particularly inviting is the very reasonable prix-fixe 3-course dinner on Wednesday nights which is always an inventive and delicious menu; the chef puts together an inviting mix of ingredients and manages to create...

Nice locally sourced restaurant with a very diverse and adventuresome menu. This was our first visit and it did not disappoint. The place is good for a larger group or an intimate meal with multiple seating areas and a downstairs wine bar/dining area. If you want intimate, ask to be seated downstairs.

Not knowing what to expect, we ventured into this upscale restaurant on a Saturday noon. My first recommendation is to read the menu before entering, it is limited, and mostly brunch fare. The only two real luncheon choices were a hamburger and a fish burger, each with fries. There were eggs benedict, and other egg choices as well. My husband... More

This is a cute little place on the historic main drag in Bath. Nice fresh fish prepared with a light touch and with nice sides. Downstairs is a little close so I'd recommend sitting upstairs Not a huge place so reserve ahead All in all, a very nice meal

We decided on Saturday morning to go out to dinner that evening we had been to Solo Bistro a few years ago and decided to give it another try. They have expanded since the last time we were there but I am glad we booked because the place was full. The soup of the day was a squash soup and... More

Our meal was delicious, and I would recommend this restaurant. I would also suggest you check out the menu first, as it is quite limited. There was one vegetarian option on the menu, which my son's girlfriend enjoyed. She would have preferred more of a selection. The restaurant takes reservations, which we were not aware of. They did manage to... More

Went to Solo with some friends and had a delicious dinner! Started out with crab cakes, they were very tasty, a tiny bit small too, but had a nice flavor. Then had the vegan Napoleon which had a large variety of vegetables in a semi spicy sauce. Delicious! The presentation of all the food was amazing and the quality was... More

I enjoyed half a dozen very fresh oysters and a good mushroom tart. My husband ordered the goat croquets. He forgot he doesn't really like goat. Overall the food here is very good quality.
