A favorite place in Hood River!

This is our favorite place for supper in Hood River. Not much to add to all the glowing reviews already posted. They're correct! Everything is good, you will want to order ALL of the menu! Drinks are also well done, creative and tasty concoctions on special each night that I was there. My only... read more

Highly recommend getting a variety of small pizza's and plates to share because you are going to want to sample EVERYTHING! Our choices: Siragusa Pear Salad, a seasonal special Peach, Hazelnut & Green Olive Salad, Margherita Pizza, Cremini Pizza, and a giant bowl of gourmet Mac & Cheese! The casual yet upscale ambiance combined with the friendly and attentive service... More

Solstice is, in my opinion, the trifecta of casual dining...good food, good beer, good atmosphere! Located right across the street from the park where people from all over come to wind surf, you'll find all kinds of people hanging out from those tired and excited wind surfers and their friends and family to locals to tourists in town to take...

Great food. So so service. Our order was given to another table so we go some nuts. Granted they were good but we waited about an hour for our food. No other comp. Go but don't go with a timeline.

We were delighted to find this new restaurant on a recent visit to Hood River. We sat on the deck and shared a huge salad, a mushroom pizza, and a couple beers. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I look forward to my next meal there.

Went for a casual, relaxing dinner after a day of hiking in Hood River area. Atmosphere was great - relaxed, seating is open to outside, great view - and food was delicious. Ended dinner with the wood-fired S'more...yum!

We visited a year ago and enjoyed it very much. Don't know what happened since then but we won't be back. Horrible service - waitress with an attitude. Food was so-so. Very disappointing!

Cool spot in Hood River. Both the pizza and salads are fantastic. It was very busy for midweek lunch...they even asked us if we could re- use our salad plate for our pizza.

We went here for just a bite and ended up ordering a number of appetizers! Each one was delicious. We ate outside and enjoyed watching the people. Their wine menu is filled with local wines which we thoroughly enjoyed. And based on the crowd which is ever present I'm sure the food is every bit as good as it was... More

This place is awesome! Solstice is in a great location and has terrific food. We didn't know before we got there, but there is a great family sitting area for people with little kids that has toys and things to keep the little ones entertained. There is also a really nice outdoor seating area that would have been perfect if... More
