Brilliant Lunch

It is so refreshing that in this busy world, Solari's still exists to serve their clientele in a unused manner. A lost art in many restaurants these days. The staff is accomodating and attentive. Wines by the glass are good as well. Appetizers and entrees have always been delicious and flavorful.

Haven't eaten at Solari's in a while, but I still recall the fantastic meal I had there. Very nice decor and ambience which is a welcome change from the typical and unremarkable restaurants in the area. Good reputation for consistent Italian fare.

Found this place online. Went there with my copilot. Arrived early at 5pm, immediate seating. Ordered a bottle of Amarone, wonderful. Had the Cajun Calamari, which was sweeter than spicy, but quite good. I ordered the rack of lamb which was awesome. My copilot ordered the Chilean Sea bass which was the best Sea bass I have ever had. Topped... More

The service and appetizer was excellent Wilson was attentive and pleasant.. The only negative was the Dessert, A Cannoli was hard and very sweet. Tasted like a frozen or store bought. But overall I will be back.

Had lunch here while on jury duty. The bartender Lauren was very friendly and attentive. Had lunch at the bar and ordered Cavalli and broccoli Rabe which was very good. I'm italian and picky and this dish made my cut. Will definately go back and try other dishes.

This is a great Italian Restaurant for all the right reasons. As an Italian American with a mother from Naples, I don't go out to eat Italian very often, and when I do I'm not so easily pleased. Soloris has that warm Italian family feeling like you're at your cousin Vinny's wedding. The manager spent time at our table making... More

If the service at their bar is any indication of the rest of the restaurant then it is great. Stopped in for a few drinks and to meet with a client. The service was very good and friendly at the bar and there was free thin crust pizza as a bar snack which was delicious and a snack that was... More

I had been wanting to try Solaris for a long time and decided to try it for lunch. It was filled with City Hall and County types as if they eat there for long lunches when they are not busy. I had a pasta special that was so full of ingredients that you could barely taste the sauce. It was... More
