a hidden treasure

this restaurant is housed in an old train station, and is somewhat hard to find due to its location off the main road...It is often quite busy on weekend evenings, so it is best to go when it is less busy, and wait staff are less stressed.

Although my meal was well prepared and very tasty it would be difficult for me to give this restaurant a high rating. I found the portions to be very small and the pricing to be very expensive.

The food and service here is wonderful. The tuna entre was the best we have ever had in a restaurant. The atmosphere is great being in an old train station. Service is also great. You can go wrong with anything on the menu.

My husband and I have visited Solstice twice for special occasions. Most recently we went in with another couple at around 6:45PM on a Saturday evening. We were seated promptly (without a reservation no less.) I was surprised there was no wait but it seems like we beat the rush, as shortly afterwards we could see a crowd starting to... More

A gem located in the old station house by the railroad tracks in Kingston. The restaurant is elegant, but not overstated. You are greeted by one of the owners and are escorted to your table. Each spot is unique and you immediately are waited on by polite and observant wait staff. The menu features something for everyone -lovely appetizers, gorgeous... More

Make sure to check out Solstice the next time you are looking for a nice night out. No need to head to Boston for fine dining. Great service, food, and atmosphere. Oh, and wine list.

We found the food was overpriced and the portions were tiny. I am not a cheap person. I am more than happy to pay a ridiculous price for an excellent and fairly portioned meal. However, what did it for us was the attitude of our waiter. One person in our party ordered a steak dish with the meat cooked "medium".... More

We have been here several times. We enjoy the atmosphere and food. We don't drink alcohol and I feel like every time we eat here the server gets upset when we say we don't want anything to drink. Reading other people reviews I can see that we are not alone in feeling like the service is a bit "snobby". Other... More

I think because Solstice is the most expensive restaurant in Kingston the clientele and the staff act like they are better than me. If I can eat and pay for my meal there, I deserve to be there as much as any one else. I think the fellow diners who must be regulars and some, not all, of the staff... More

Let's be clear I had been to Solstice a few times over the years but stopped after a waiter talked "down" to me on a romantic Valentines Day evening, having to explain the braising of a lamb shank, (because he thought I was an idiot...) Now, back to 2014, we decided to try again, because, it is local and we... More
