About
Solbar is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with new safety standards. The best aspect of working at Solbar, according to Executive Chef Gustavo Rios, is being part of a “food culture that respects local produce, farmers and ranchers”. He showcases that back-to-the-land reverence with farm-fresh Napa Valley produce—with some vegetables and herbs harvested just moments beforehand in the kitchen garden out back. But while the sourcing may be local, our chef's influences are global, resulting in flavorful, inventive border-crossing cuisine.

We love Solbar! We've gone for breakfast on our anniversary for the past two years. The food is amazing. This year we shared the Smoked Monterey Salmon and it was incredible. The restaurant is also beautiful. The fires where in fighting form when we were...there and we still thought it was lovely. The service was also world class. The gave us some complementary champagne to celebrate our anniversary and were very helpful and attentive for our whole visit.More

We live in Napa and Solbar is one of the best. The garden area has a nice view of the pool and food the presentation and service were first class. My wife and I highly recommend this restaurant for either special occasions or travelers.

The experience here is top notch. Our party of 6 was very impressed and satisfied with all the food offerings as well as the service. And, dining outside on the patio near to pool is just lovely.

Our anniversary dinner at Solbar was one of the best meals I have ever had. A m a z i n g. This was the first patio meal we had after 6 months of lockdown and boy was it worth it! The watermelon salad was...magical. Vegan corn chowder was served cold and I was grateful for each bite. The New York steak was almost 3 in thick and the knife glided through every bite. The sun chokes were crunchy on the outside and smooth and creamy on the inside. The sauce was amazing, as were the mushrooms. The service was friendly and it was great to be served by a hometown Sebastopol girl. Don't miss the opportunity to have dinner at solbar!More

Our server was excellent and the staff really bends over backwards. (Our online reservation didn't go through - our fault I think - but they made us feel welcome and found us a table.) The food is lovely, but a shadow if our visit in...years past. The ambition is gone and the menu reads like all others. The peach-prosciutto salad was quite enjoyable but not the invention I've enjoyed in past visits. I wish you the best in re-inventing yourselves Solbar!More

had such a great lunch here , decided to come back for my last meal in the napa area. booked online for 12:30 luncheon , and arrived about six minutes early. in spite of 6 empty tables , the hostess refused to seat me ....it was 96 degrees , and a refreshing drink before lunch would have been great . alas . the receptionist was rude , and arrogant , and had no reasonable explanation as to why i couldn't be seated . left the seating area, mentioned the rude and unwelcoming behavior to a manager at reception and left .More

Outstanding in all respects. I want to thank the manager and all the waitstaff for a truly magical dinner and drinks experience. Our appetizers and entrees were visually impressive and delicious. Extra thanks for the whiskey and bourbon explanations of history and description. We will...not forget this fantastic night out at your beautiful outdoor setting.More

Had lunch here with a group of six very accommodating everyone loved the food and the wine selection was great but the star of the show was the lobster roll and the Wagyu Burger. Very reasonable pricing for a Michelin star restaurant. Service was top...notch.More

They’re renovating outside the restaurant but they were still gracious and accommodating. We tried their beet salad, mushroom soup with grilled cheese sandwich, and their burrata cheese toasts for starters. Most of us ordered the wagyu burger. I tried the impossible burger. My husband said...his burger was good but a tad salty. Funny, I thought the same for my impossible burger. It was also a tad salty. The fries were crisp and hot when they arrived. For dessert, we had their beignets with chocolate sauce and their Tart Tatin. I wish the tart were warmed up.More
