It started horribly at the front reservation desk. We had reservations and showed up 5 minutes early. They made us wait while 4 other couples got seated that had no reservations. Service inside was a bit better. Food was average. There are other places in Columbia I would go.

Came here for lunch and loved every bite. The tomato basil soup was so good as was the smoked Gouda & bacon Mac-n-cheese. Our server , Nick was very attentive. Will be back next year. ( on vacation to visit my sister).

The chef at Solstice prepares imaginative and delicious dishes with interesting flavours...an inspired menu of selections with a great wine list, including a special group of $20/bottle California wines which were great value. Our server Hanna was knowledgable and enthusiastic about the menu choices, gracious, warm and welcoming...someone who takes pride in her profession. This was our first visit and... More

Our waiter was really nice and very professional. Could not decide between the vegetarian dish and the chicken with Mac and cheese and let th waiter choose. He chose th chicken and it was delicious. We ate inside and it was very comfortable and just a nice relaxing evening. Another "do again ".

We live in Columbia and not far from this restaurant. We enjoy the food and wine but on this visit the service was not up to expectations. The waiter didn't pay attention to our needs and we had to ask every time we wanted something. That being said the steak was tender and well prepared and food was well presented.
