Ate here with my family after a long morning at the beach. The food was very good and the beer selection was excellent. It's very laid back for lunch, but the service was still very good. Definitely recommend if you are in Encinitas.

Solace/Moonlight Lounge is a great addition to the Encinitas area with fresh, organic and local food options. Its conveniently located in the Whole Foods shopping center on 101 and there is decent parking on site in the parking garage. The food is very good...we especially like the cheddar biscuits, the hanger steak and the burgers. They always have good salads... More

My daughters and I just happened upon this beautiful lounge. The menu looked intriguing and the choices we made very much enjoyed. We tend to eat family style, each ordering something different so we can get different tastes. They have a delicious appetizer of smoked black mussels that were simmered in a delicious smoky tomato sauce, we had to ask... More

Solace is a fabulous lounge/restaurant to visit while visiting or driving through this quaint beach town. The view from the patio is spectacular - beautiful sunset on a June/July evening. I recommend reservations. The salmon was wild and delicious. They did not use butter so it was super healthy. The sea bass was also very good. This is fun for... More

Stopped in for the Sunday night special chicken dinner. Fabulous portion, exceptionally moist, terrific value. Enough to split with one other person. Come hungry. Will be back. !!

We went last week for lunch. There were very few people there on a Tuesday. I was really hungry and ordered two separate items, Steamed Black Muscles and an Arugula Salad which was supposed to come with goat cheese. The salad was fine and fresh but there was no goat cheese which was a bit disappointing - it still was... More
