Our cuisine can be labeled many things, but it is most definitely seasonal. Our service is professional, yet far from stuffy. Our décor is modern, yet simple, and our wine list is extensive. Perhaps most important of all, everyone from our servers and bartenders, to our chefs and management, are among the most dedicated service industry professionals in our community.

Casual dining atmosphere was accented with some truly great fare! I had the typical shrimp & grits, but was tastefully (pardon the pun) surprised when it was presented in a non-traditional manner... I'd recommend it. The chefs "taste" is presented as a prelude to a some other great offerings... As this was my first visit I am anxious to try... More

Everytime I go visit family in Columbia we go here for dinner. My grandma loves the fried oysters and looks forward to them everytime. The staff is always helpful and friendly. I have had several things from here and they are always delicious. I have also been to a dinner in the private room here and they are great. Staff... More

Solstice is a very popular restaurant located in a suburban strip mall north of Columbia, SC. It looks promising when you see the menu, but is overpriced for what it is, especially that far out of town. While the service was good, it was because the server was well-trained and experienced more from her international experience than anything. The hostess... More
