Amazing Food! Great place to relax!

The food was amazing as always! I enjoy coming here every time I'm in town and they never let me down. Make sure you cruise the whole area as you can find lots of good food and drinks on this strip.

Very eclectic and fun interior design. Wood-fired pizza ovens in view of patrons. Very friendly staff. Craft beers and real Mexican Coke! The food was absolutely Deelish, and served hot! The atmosphere is welcoming and the over impression is that the locals love this place. Beautiful, distant view of the gorge from the wall of windows. Hardwood floors and funky... More

My company had made reservations 8 days in advance. we arrived with no table ready, so we had to sit outside under heat lamps. The waitress was pleasant and happy. We ordered the Truffle fries, they were average. We also ordered 2 of the fire stone pizza's, they were good. After the appetizers we all ordered the steak sandwich, shortly... More

Looks like your typical casual dining microbrew put, but the menu is anything but typical! The fried brussel sprouts with the brown sugar with bacon bits was a very unique flavor. The truffle fries were ok, but not the best I've had. They were pretty greasy, but I did love that they were hand cut. My husband had the ragu,... More

Nice little lunch or dinner stop down near the waterfront in Hood River. Good wood fired pizza with unique toppings, local ingredients, local brews, indoor and outdoor seating, and in a really nice setting. Great place in Hood River.

We had the signature Country Girl Cherry pizza, which was just delicious! The green salad was the perfect opener. Our server was attentive, friendly, helpful. Couldn't have been better.

Great restaurant with roll up doors when the weather is warm, wonderful startup story, and fantastic food. We LOVED the brussel sprouts!

My cousin took us to Solstice for lunch today. My wife had a salad and I had their steak sandwich with a salad. The food was awesome. The staff was very attentive and the owner came to our table to check on us. They have a small play area for the kids. We would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Where to begin? I started going to Solstice when they were in Bingen. Today they're much larger, but the friendly vibe and fresh food is still evident. Seasonal pizza are worth asking about - though the cherry/chorizo is a winner at an time. The summer special featured fresh figs and that special mix of sweet and savory atop a crackling... More
