Solare serves some of the best italian food in San Diego. It is situated in Liberty Station which is mostly associated with more casual fare. But don't be fooled. Solare is beautiful, inviting and sports an active bar as well as a very warm dining environment. All elements of their menu are creative yet adhere to tradition. They focus on... More

I met my friend for drinks, and it turned into dinner at the bar. She had a pasta with lobster dish, and I asked for something simple not on the menu: linguini with garlic, basil and olive oil. It was superb. What a nice surprise. Someone is really thinking about making extraordinary food at this restaurant. The small chunks of... More

We are here last night. We didn't have reservations but our party of five were seated right away. The service was great, very attentive. Portion sizes were great and the food was delicious. All in all a great place to eat.

This restaurant is rather well hidden inside the Liberty Station project (off Rosecrans) but it is worth the effort to find it. There is outdoor terrace dining as well as a bar area and the dining room. The interior decor is quite interesting, very contemporary and refreshingly different (for the area). There is a reasonable amount of free parking in... More

I was invited out for a business lunch and was delightfully surprised at the cuisine. The service was excellent and atmosphere was very conducive for business. Tucked inside Liberty Station, with good parking.

Our wine food and atmosphere was superior upon our greeting at the door carried througout our meal. Excellant choices. The owner Randy introduced himself and we spoke for quite a while about our arrival to San Diego from the devastation of the Cabos hurricane. His kindness and generousity will not be forgotten by my husband and myself. Thanks to Randy,... More

We dined at Solare tonight for our 25th wedding anniversary and were given the royal treatment by the executive chef and his staff. We were seated in the wine cellar by ourselves, which was so romantic and thoughtful. The food was excellent and authentically Italian. Everybody came by to wish us a happy anniversary including the chef. I highly recommend... More

We went to Point Loma to try and get some relief from the heat. We decided to dine on the cool, breezy , arched patio near a tree surrounded by Cyclamens. We were able to take advantage of the happy hour drink prices and I had a few glasses of the Italian wine which was on special . The waiter... More

What an excellent meal! Both my boys, 8 and 11, cleaned their plates. Too bad we were from out of town. I would love to go back! As a family we agreed that this meal was better than we had in Little Italy, NYC. We lucked out that some of the meals were half price because of happy hour. Make... More

Have driven by this place a number of times and finally got a chance to try it. Really liked the atmosphere - casual, relaxed. Ate in the bar area (bar is small) and tables set up felt like we had plenty of room which made for a relaxing meal. Service was ok .. not great. Thought the food was really... More
