A proper pint. A warm meal. A cozy table. This is what you can expect when you step into Sólás, a quaint neighborhood pub with modern flair. Nestled in the heart of Boston’s storied Back Bay, Sólás is the perfect spot to while away an afternoon overlooking the bustle of Boylston Street or linger over beers in our intimate dining room. Our lunch and dinner menus feature classic pub dishes with regional New England touches. A rich selection of salads and stews, and sandwiches and entrees, are enjoyed with our extensive selection of draft beers, craft cocktails and hand selected wines.

Decent pub visit

Well priced drinks and food. A tad loud however and it would've been nice had it been indicated on the menu that the chicken fingers were only battered rather than breaded (or at least so it seemed). The check took a fair bit to arrive but as there seemed to be multiple private events going on... read more

I love this little Irish pub. Depending on the night the wait staff and bartenders are warm, but don't go there for the service. The Guiness pour is one of the best in the city, food is not too bad; for pub food. Also, the hotel it is attached to, and where you need to use the restroom(The Lenox), has... More

When we travel to Boston, my wife likes first to shop, and I first like to get a nice glass at Solas. This is a great friendly, comfortable place. Food is pretty good, too

Good service and beer selection. Chowda was mediocre but the onion soup was good and the mac n cheese was filling and fun.

My husband and I went here for a drink and appetizer and it was great except the bartender was not very friendly. The Reuben egg rolls were awesome!

Have been to this restaurant twice, on both my visits to Boston. The atmosphere is warm & cozy, the servers are nice, and food & drinks are good. Most recent visit was during happy hour, so beers were half-price, which I didn't realize until the check came, so that made for a pleasant surprise. It's located next to the Lenox... More

Our hotel recommend Solas for an Irish meal. We took our grandson to have a Irish Shepard pie in a Irish pub. He enjoyed the experience. Good service and close by our hotel within walking distance.

We stayed in the Lenox which is adjoined to the pub. As a family of 6 Irish, you can be sure we had a good time!. Food and service was good, not much bar space, more seating at tables, but was ideal for a night cap, or two, or three, .....

Went there with my wife, daughter and her husband and spent a great evening of craft beer tasting mixed with abundant local dishes. The atmosphere is great, though a bit noisy, but all in all a good experience of an Irish Pub.
