Amazing Pizza

I realize people get crazy about pizza and I won't get into an argument about what regional style is best or what should and should not be on one. I will say that the wood fired Country Girl Cherry pizza at Solstice is, without a doubt, my favorite pizza I have ever had. Cherry, Chorizo and Goat... read more

I live 20 minutes away, in The Dalles. I go to a famous and fabulous Endonist that works next door. I was fascinated by the restaurant. I've been to my Endonist twice and I've been to Solstice twice. I can't eat the darned pizza until 3 hours after my procedure. But it's heaven. The muskiness of the crust, the dynamics... More

All the effort they put into this hipster hangout doesn't make up for the waste of a the wood fire pizza oven. Our pie was undercooked and chewy, toppings were sparse. Speaking of toppings, there are things here that should not be on a 'real' pizza ... Butternut squash? On another note, you can create a $15.50 hamburger if you... More

We stopped for a late lunch after hiking in the Gorge area - to find lunch specials still underway - $2/slice a pizza!! Both the wood fired cheese and the pepperoni were fabulous, but our surprise favorite were the pomodoro meatballs. They were served in a bowl with so you could savor the meatballs and all the sauce.

The pizza here is amazing, but the chef's are a little heavy handed with the salt. The Autumn salad I had was the best and they have a great beer selection. They also have a nice kids' play area.

Whenever my son and his wife visit from San Francisco, they want to go to Solstice for a wood-fired Pizza. A favorite is the Solstice pizza with hot coppa ham, pineapple chutney, shredded mozzarella and Jalapeno cream sauce. On December 9, 2014 I was there with a large group and so got to sample all eight of their current pizzas... More

The pizzas were excellent as were the salads. We loved the wine and beer offerings here as well. It looked like it was going to be a long wait on a Friday judging by all the folks milling around however they were able to seat the two of us immediately and service was excellent. Highly recommended!

This place has been recommended to us for a couple years. They used to be in another location but now they are on the water front in Hood River. Easy to find right in front of where the wind surfers are surfing. We got the Soltice pizza and it had cheese and a tasty ham and great pineapple topped with... More

We ate here at the recommendation of someone I know, and it was great. I had a hamburger and Husband had a chef salad. Both were excellent. I forgot to ask the server to ask the chef to make my burger well done; it arrived very slightly pink on the inside and it looked so good that I ate it... More
