My husband and I frequent this restaurant regularly. Columbia does not have a lot of fine dining options. I'm a mid-level foodie and my husband is a meat and potato kind of guy this restaurant does not disappoint either of us. The service is amazing and I love that the menu is locally sourced and changes seasonally. If you're someone... More

Fantastic service and food, something you can rely on every time you visit. Years ago we used to only drop in on special occasions. Solstice is worth at least a monthly, if not weekly, visit. And their lunches are fantastic, too! (The Mac n cheese is killer!)

The menu has some unique dishes paired with some of the standards. I had the short rib stuffed quial breast on a bed of white beans. A great take on a southern dish. The wine list is extensive. The service is great. Very good atmosphere.

I had a wonderful meal and excellent service tonight. The mixed greens salad and vingerette dressing, shrimp and grits and cheese bread with butter were fabulous. My waiter was spot on with keeping my glass full and quick with the check when I was ready. The manager stopped by to ask how the meal was. Everything was perfect.

My favorite place to have a date night, or take friends who are visiting town. A lot of restaurants are doing "new southern" cuisine, Solstice is the best of the bunch.

Our son and his wife could not wait to take us here when we came in town. The food, service and atmosphere were amazing. Highly recommend the Mac and cheese and the pork shoulder. The cheese plate appetizer was also enjoyable .

My wife and I have gone here for the past few years for our anniversary, and have always enjoyed the food. On our last visit, August 16, we have decided to not frequent the establishment again. Not because of the food but due to the atmosphere, and in particular, the front desk people. We had called for reservations a week... More

My mother and sisters came to town for my birthday weekend. We dined here the first night, after I reviewed the trip advisor resturant reviews for the area and noticed it was ranked # two in the city. The wait wasn't very long. Since the weather was pleasant, we ordered wine from the bar and waited outside. There wasn't much... More

Excellent atmosphere.The jazz music, seating arrangement, lighting, and settings were nice. The free horderves provided by the chef was excellent. The hot bread and creamy butter were great. Presentation of the food was great. The presentation did not mean a small portion either. I enjoyed the deviled eggs. Finally the entree, potroast, mashed potatoes, onion rings, and string beans were... More
