We chose the restaurant based on menu and reviews. A little trouble with GPS, but once there WOW! We were seated promptly and ordered quickly. All entrees sounded delicious. We ordered the filet (scrumptious) and the special 14oz. Ribeye (delicious). We ordered pulled pork spring rolls (excellent) and were brought a sample of andouille sausage croquette (best hush puppy ever!)... More

Three of us ate here tonight. First let me say that every mouthful was out of this world. The scallop dish was outstanding, and the monkfish special was also very good. Two of us had a cup of broccoli soup as well and it was the best I've ever tasted. Unfortunately it took a very long time for our meals... More

Very,very good does not describe the menu. On arrival you are brought an appetizer sample that is delicious and just teases your pallet for more from this farm to fork reasteraunt. Every farmer and their time and effort are noted and the chef really knows his business. May be a wait for a table but sit back and enjoy!

At lunch today it took about 35 minutes from the time the waiter took our order until we had our food. When we commented about the length of time, the waiter told us there had been a food delivery and that had caused the kitchen to get behind. Serious? What place allows a food delivery in the middle of the... More

Outstanding food. Everything from the sashimi appetizer to the red meat entrees were outstanding. The Krispy Kreme dessert was more than I could choke down sweetness/grease-wise, but that's the point. Service was perfect, management on top of the customers. Good environment for a nice date, business dinner. Only downside: their cocktails are very inventive in terms of the crafting, but... More

Food was outstanding and the service was attentive but not intrusive. The staff was very knowledgeable and the atmosphere is very inviting.

My wife and I visited Solstice Kitchen because it was the number one ranked restaurant in Columbia at the time. The polite hostess seated us promptly upon arrival. Our waitress was friendly and exceptionally helpful with menu choices. The restaurant has a romantic allure that enabled us to ignore sitting away from a wall. We felt like we were in... More

I have been going here for a few years, from sitting at the bar or in the main area, the staff is wonderful and the food is just amazing. They always serve you a "present" which is a small appetizer before any food comes out. The sad part is, is that you won't find it on the menu but it... More

We invited another couple to dinner at Solstice, and we were all very happy with our selections and our server, Christy. The soft shell crab was some of the best we've ever had, and the salmon entree' was excellent, too. None of us were real crazy about the bone marrow appetizer, but I guess that's just a matter of personal... More
