This is one of the best restaurants we've tried in Maine. We are foodies from the SF Bay Area and always try to seek out great local spots.. Fresh, innovative food, excellent wine list, and most of all, excellent service.. We couldn't decide what to have because so many things looked good so we had dinner there two nights in... More

Solo Bistro provided us with a good selection of healthy and traditional choices for their Sunday brunch. I thoroughly enjoyed the goat cheese and shrimp salad. The shrimp were true Gulf jumbos and not previously frozen. My wife and friends had traditional omelettes with everyone cleaning their plates. The staff was pleasant and attentive. We enjoyed sitting at a table... More

We had a late summer dinner with friends at Solo Bistro, Our meals were excellent. The house salad was a nice mix of bitter greens with sweetened pecans. My scallops were perfectly cooked and delicious. A shared dessert of creme brulee was very good, and the accompanying shortbread cookie had an unusual (and tasty) flavor with the addition of rosemary... More

On the advice of various FaceBook friends, we had dinner at Solo Bistro. My wife had the Bistro Steak & Frites which was a perfectly prepared hanger steak with hand cut fries. I opted for the lobster special; Lobster with sweet pea risotto with bacon dust, almonds and a roasted corn salsa. It was a mélange of flavors and made... More

I have gone to Solo Bistro a number of times over the years and it has never lived up to its hype. We tried again last night. My wife and I selected the Bistro Steak and Frites. After ordering, the waitress brought us some bread and a cheese spread. The cheese spread was very good, but the bread was dry... More

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. We had a great time sampling... More
