The menu seemed a bit overpriced for what you got and the food all seemed to be the same brown color, but it tasted fine. The beer and wine selections were very good and we each received a glass of cava when we were seated at our table. The restaurant is attached to a hotel, which is where one needs... More

I was not sure what to expect prior to arrival. We were greeted with a glass of wine which was a very thoughtful and tasty gesture. The bar is long with plenty of seating and an eclectic mix of well executed cocktails. The wine and beer list is extensive and quite interesting. The food is locally sourced and nicely presented....

Nice selection of beers. Food is fresh and eclectic a nice feature is that you can get large or small size portions. Good location near Petco Field and in the Gaslamp district.

Had to ask for rooftop dining. Server very friendly and attentive. The menu was limited and the portions were small. Seemed more bar like than a luncheon destination.

While staying at the Solamar Hotel we had numerous meals (2 breakfasts, 1 lunch, 1 dinner) and a night of cocktails and apps. Overall the selection of foods was fresh, high quality ingredients served with a robust emphasis on appearance and flavor. We were extremely impressed with the attention to detail. The waitstaff was quick to serve and had a... More

They hosted an open house lastnight to tout their remodel. The place is really cool. They greeted us with champagne. But then it fell flat. The food they had out for their "open house" was cauliflower, picked sticks and tomatillos, and some fatty meats. No carbs to absorb the yummy beer and whiskey being served. The band was good but...

Kate- I'm sorry you didn't find enough food at our open house. As it was pretty packed with people, our effort was to provide light bites that were easier to walk around with than our small-plate menu ( involves lots of broths/sauces/dressing and thus not very party-friendly). As you enjoyed the atmosphere and the drinks I do hope you will... More

Dined here twice while staying at the Solamar, and the wait service was fast and kind. Ingredients were fresh and innovative, and the atmosphere was relaxed, with a nice view of the street and lots of light. Prices were very reasonable, less than $12 for most items.

After spending almost 3 weeks travelling and eating out we were craving something healthy and nutritious. This place has a great vibe, friendly welcoming staff, nice decor and most importantly great food at a reasonable price. The omelet was delicious. The coffee was OK by American standards (Australians are fussy about coffee). Overall a wonderful little spot. Will go back.
