On a Saturday night, on our way home with another couple following a Portland Stage Performance, we reserved our dinner stop at Solo Bistro. We have eaten there before, but not since they added additional dining space (perhaps took over an adjacent store). The space was attractive; the staff attentive; the food was very good. Two of us had the... More

We walked along the main street one evening looking for a suitable restaurant for our one night stay in Bath. Most of the eating options in the town looked either "down market" or empty. The Solo Bistro, however, seemed to be where everyone in Bath was eating that night. Fortunately we secured a quiet table downstairs and enjoyed our tasty... More

We enjoyed a dinner at Solo on a recent weekend trip back up to Bath. My husband had the scallops -- four huge scallops that were beautiful cooked -- and I had the lobster risotto, which was not mixed all together but a lazy-man lobster atop risotto and chard. Both excellent. I also had the carrot ginger soup -- Solo's... More

Having enjoyed Solo's on our first visit, we returned again this year and were not disappointed. On our last night before heading home, we were presented with their new menu. We both chose the Hake as an entrée - and I have to say it was nectar of the gods!

A store employee had recommended this restaurant and after reading their outside menu, we had to give it a try. We were greeted by everyone there as if we were regulars. There are so many good choices on the menu that it is hard to choose. We ended up having appetizers and an entree and sadly no room for dessert.... More

My wife and I stayed in Bath for an overnight, and visited this place for dinner. It's a bistro that specializes in local flavors, and didn't disappoint. We had a wonderful dinner, with a good wine selection and wonderful service. My wife had some wonderful scallops, and I had a filet. It was cooked perfectly, though I would have liked... More

Driving to Damariscotta on Monday night, missed our exit and ended up in downtown Bath. Happened on Solo Bistro and I am so glad we did. The menu is interesting and the food is thoughtfully prepared. Service is good. The restaurant is a little noisy but we could have requested a more quiet table. Nice wine list, too!

We liked this place so much, we ate here twice. Food is well-planned and executed, good wine list, great coffee! I recommend the crab cakes and the lobster roll - their evening prix fixe was a welcome surprise.

According to our B&B hostess and every one our fellow B&B guests, for we had all eaten at Solo unbeknownst to each other, Solo is the best restaurant in Bath. I would agree but you have to know that there are not many restaurants in Bath and most look pretty mediocre though not having dined at them, who knows. The... More
