Staff was friendly and considerate with great services. Foods are amazing. My bf told them it was my birthday, they organized a surprise for us at the end, love it. It's pricey but so worth it. Must go

We really enjoyed this Japanese French fusion experience. Service was friendly and efficient. The subtle flavours of the sea bass and the crap appetizers were lovely and memorable. A great night out.

Sola was an amazing discovery. It was located across from our hotel and we were intrigued by the atmosphere and people waiting outside. Sola is a led by a great Japanese chief that is combining Japanese with French cuisine creating a truly amazing fusion that is worthy of Michelin Rating. The dishes are a piece of art to look at...

I had dinner at Sola last September and, frankly speaking, one of the best in town! You need to be open to the fact that you won't chose what you'll eat but, definitely, you can trust the chef! he knows what he is doing! we took two menus and it was about 3 starters and 3 main dishes and I...

I was invited as a guest during a business dinner. The setting is comfortable though with limited space. The food presentation were just artfully executed. Ingredients are fresh and beautiful. I would definitely return.

Cool place. Really nice personal. Excellent food, worthy of a Michelin star with a cosy atmosphere. The best egg and tempura mushrooms dish i have ever tried. Congratulations to the chef. I recommend it.

It is nice to have some space in a Paris restaurant. We had the tasting menu on a Saturday at midday. We opted for the fish dishes, whenever they were available. It was excellent; the service was, too.

One of the best Japanese restaurants, calling it fusion is an insult to the creativity they should be credited with. Large number of plates served, lost count, small portions of course but high on taste, quality and creativity. Excellent service, if you are familiar with Japanese or Asian culture, empathetic and appreciative of the huge effort it takes to produce... More

For the price you pay, the service you get at this restaurant is horrific... the staff especially the manager is soo rude, so abrupt and poor, it was just one of the worse experiences ever. I was there with my girlfriend and it couldn't have been so poor. I almost walked out before finishing...

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and we almost cancelled because of the reference to Japanese influence. If you can afford this then don't miss it. The staff was beautiful with excellent communication skills and the food was one on the top list. Not your typical French fare but a welcomed experience after two weeks in France. There is... More
