My wife and I met another couple for cocktails and dinner Friday night. We had the table in the wine room -- Fabulous! Both the food and wine were great. Francois, our waiter provided excellent service. Randy, the owner, stopped in to say hello and to check on our dining experience. A+ dining experience!!!

Hi again Folks. We stopped by Solare after a long day of sightseeing. Both of us had the lasagna. It said on their menu that their chef experimented with new lasagna recipes weekly. This week was lasagna made with lamb, mint and eggplant. It was delightful. The menu was good, they had a large wine list, the service was good... More

After coming back from Italy I have to admit I have been spoiled and was skeptical even though I know this restaurant. It's still fantastic and still rates in my most favorite places to eat!

Great food, good service and an attractive restaurant. This place has new owners with the same great food. I only get here about 3-4 times of the year, but its a 70 mile drive. Other than the airplane noise occasionally, there is nothing bad to say. Give it a try.

Perfecto! I wish everyone who enjoys food could experience such a thing at least once in their life! We had a group of 20 people in the Solaire private dining room. Our dinner featured a custom menu made up by the chef for this meal. It featured wild boar cooked 5 different ways with their chocolate salami dessert. The service... More

My husband and I were staying at the Courtyard near the airport for one night before flying out of San Diego Airport. The front desk of our hotel told us about this place and gave us a coupon for one free entree with the purchase of another. We took the hotel shuttle over and were pleased with the nice decor...

It had been a few years since I dined at Solare, and I was anxious to see if the new owners picked up where the old ones left off. Thankfully, they have. The service was really great and so was the food. I had the Ravioli Ricotta e Spinaci alla Salvia--house-made ravioli filled with ricotta and spinach, sauteed with butter... More

Solare is located in Liberty Station - an ex-military grounds that was developed by the City of San Diego. Very well done and worth a day just snooping around. My daughter and I entered the grounds looking for a place to eat. There are plenty of choices but we settled on Solare; it looked inviting. The entry is a small,... More

Service is not a strong point here. We've been here several times before and the food quality continues to go down hill. Probably won't be back.

Solare is located in Liberty Square near the bay and the airport. We had an early dinner during happy hour on the first Friday of February and then attended an art walk in the surrounding area. Food is good, and location is good for anyone staying in the area.
