Good atmosphere, service and food was exceptional. Brussels sprout appetizer was fabulous , oyster were fresh , ice cold and briney- excellent. Salmon, duck, burger, hanger steak, and shrimp dish were amazingly delicious! Everything from special cocktails to homemade focaccia bread with lemon mint butter was just terrific. Can't wait to go back!!

Fresh, largely locally-sourced, food prepared consistently well and served by an attentive staff. The wine list offers some interesting choices. Wednesday night specials are a great mid-week opportunity to have a great meal at a great price. The downstairs jazz offerings are a welcome diversion.

My wife and I just wanted a nice dinner to relax. The bistro setting, broad wine list, full bar, and interesting entries just hit the spot. We did not go downstairs to the bar. Service was friendly without being pushy. They do offer a couple of tables outside, as well. Make a reservation. 😀

OK! I realize that how much a dish is cooked is matter of taste and that undercooking is very much "in" but mushy lobster doesn't appeal to me and bloody chicken (Jamacian "jerk") is just plain dangerous.....That said, I probably should have asked for my food "well done"...Otherwise, this place hasn't changed much since my last reviews. Modern decor, good... More

We were here last year and once again it was wonderful. The oysters were yummy, the crab cake perfect and the duck delicious. The cheese for desert was excellent. Great spot.

We are so happy that Solo continues to thrive! Not your typical Maine dining experience - very sophisticated menu and decor and with wonderful fresh Maine food and friendly and attentive staff. We had dinner at Solo on July 4 and enjoyed the Bath fireworks from our table in the window. Great evening and will of course return during our... More

The food selections are quite unique. They try to use locally-sourced ingredients- sometimes to the detriment of the meal. I was not overly impressed. The food was good but I did not feel that it was worth the high cost.

We were in Boothbay Harbor and met some one who highly recommended this restaurant. So glad we listened to them. We were staying in Bath and this restaurant was within walking distance of where we were staying (Kennebec Inn). My husband had the hanger steak. He said it tasted like a filet! I had the crab cake and brussel sprouts.... More

Small, sophisticated, foodie spot located in downtown Bath. Solo scores on all aspects of a dining experience: food, service, ambiance. Excellent and unique dishes served attentively. Credible wine list. In the top rank of Maine restaurants.
