We travelled with family through the area, a Sunday run out. Lunch was fine. A tasty pizza and accompanying salad. Local wines were available, which can be outstanding.

There is a view of the river, but not unobstructed. The decor was modern, fresh and clean. We sat outside and they had bags sets, frisbees and a few other "toys" out on the sidewalk to keep young and old occupied while waiting for a seat or food. My husband had a beer and I had a fantastic bloody mary... More

This is a very good option for a quick meal while traveling either east or west on Highway 84. Wood fired pizzas are good, other diverse things are on the menu, service is laid back, but competent, and the vibe is pleasant and inviting.

Cozy riverfront property, fantastic aroma upon arrival, My wife and I shared the pear salad and cremini pizza. Tickled the taste buds. Many choices looked appetizing, unfortunately traveling through.

When in Hood River Oregon , be sure to visit the "Waterfront" area on the Columbia river. September is harvest time for all of the fruit orchards in the area and try and find a restaurant that serves this wonderful fresh fruit. Solstice , in addition to having very good pizza, makes a fresh pear salad . This salad was... More

We ate lunch here one day while staying in Hood River and loved it so much that we came back to order dinner (takeout pizza) the same evening. Both meals were fantastic. Great indoor and outdoor seating with great views. The food was all fantastic. The simple salad was delicious, and the carrot/ginger soup was amazing. Served with yummy focaccia... More

Probably our fault...It was called simple salad and it was exactly that...lettuce, a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and balsamic dressing...all for $6. We should have just ordered the pizza. The pizza was good but we had ordered 2 salads...for $12, we should have ordered another pizza and would have felt we got much more value. And thank goodness we did... More

Had a lovely dinner with friends, sitting outside at the Solstice Cafe. Despite the fact it is in a business park near the river, you'll soon overlook the location in favor of fabulous pizzas and fresh salads. We enjoyed salads with dried pears and goat cheese on fresh greens, along with fresh brewed local beers and a large choice of... More

This restaurant has a healthy diet option like few others we have found. We were passing thru and after getting set at the hotel we searches for food here and yelp. Both had good things to say about Solstice and they were right. Our waitress was so polite and helpful in suggesting several options (food and beer) as we tried... More
