The atmosphere and service is fabulous. The pizzas are very unique using fresh local ingredients. We tried the pear with caramelized onion and the pineapple compote with spicy ham. Both had great flavor. The only reason we don't give them a 5 star rating is because we expected our crust to be a little bit crisper given it is a... More

Even though the place was busy, we were seated promptly and served quickly. Their pizzas are great as are their salads (I had the "Big Farm") and "Papa's Burger, both delicious. I also tried the pumpkin ale,, which was tasty. The service was good and efficient.

Nice interesting menu with something for everyone from gourmet pizza to hambrgers to a perfectly spiced moroccan stew. The butternut squash, bacon pizza on a thin crust was delicous. The waterfront location was picture perfect. Good local beer selection. Across the street is a nice children's activity park. Solstice is a great addition to waterfront dining in Hood River.

Everything was delicious. We had pizza with cherries on it which was super good even though that might sound strange; and macaroni and cheese that was to die for. Beautiful spot overlooking the hood river. Overall great time.

My hubby & I had first decided on pizza, then we saw a burger go by & we changed our minds & had a butger. It was excellent! It was served with chili fries & homemade ketchup. We sat outside & enjoyed the view of the waterfront park & river. We will return if ever in Hood River again.

Solstice brought up a wood fired pizza oven and did onsite catering for a wedding at our venue. They also brought a delicious green salad with pears. Their staff did an awesome feat of catering of the food--wearing coordinated chef attire as well.

Affordable prices for pizza ( I recommend the cremini mushroom pie if you like mushrooms... yummy!) Their ceasar salad appetizer was delicious. Nice selection of beers on tap. Outside seating allows for people with dogs ( we brought ours along). Prompt, friendly service. Free parking. Good for families, groups, couples.

Solstice Wood Fire Cafe and Bar has made the jump (literally) across the river from the Washington side at Bingen to the Oregon side in Hood River. And what a jump it is! The new location bears little resemblance to the old. This Upscale industrial complex at the new River Front Park puts it front and center to all the... More
