Road our bikes with some friends on Sunday morning to have breakfast at the coffee bar. They were so busy that we walked across the street to Solano's. The service was great, the food was excellent. I have had dinner there in the past but...More

Solano's is a lovely space, interesting artwork inside,nice sidewalk patio area outside. There is also a separate bar space with good music on weekends, additional nights in season. The food is very good, but the weakness is there is nothing truly memorable. Service can be...More

Fun place. Quiet outside dining and great service. Inside dining was more lively with live music. Short ribs were excellent. Would return.

Very good fillet steak as was my wife's fish dish. Service was friendly and quick despite being quite busy on the night we visited. Shor walk from our hotel just over the road.

We had a 7:30 reservation. Despite there being several open tables we had to wait until being seated (at a table right in front of the door to the kitchen). The waiter never came to greet us or offer us anything so we finally left...More

That should have been a clue, getting seated immediately at prime dinner hour on a Saturday night. We had tried to get in to the Grill on Main but they had a 45 minute wait, so we decided to go to Solano's. It was ok,...More
