We chose Solo Bistro based on others' reviews. It deserves its fine ratings. The food was great and much was locally sourced. Imagine fresh oysters from the last town you drove through! Desserts were heavenly. Solo is definitely the best restaurant in this charmingly historic downtown.

This is a very cost restaurant with a very innovative menu, great variety and everything very fresh. There is also an interesting wine menu with nice selection of European wines in addition to US options. The salted caramel ice cream was divine . The servers were also friendly and knowledgeable

Everything was top-notch at this wonderful example of New England "coastal" cooking, with a modern feel. Local ingredients tasted fresh, and handled with love and imagination. Presentation couldn't have been better..truly a gourmet kitchen staff. And a special thanks to such a warm, friendly, well-trained staff for making 'strangers' feel at home among the locals.

Outstanding experience. Nice staff, excellent menu and wine list. Great service. Well prepared meals served to each of our party of four. Of perhaps a dozen restaurants visited by our family group over a ten day vacation, this was the standout locale. This was a delight to find, and illustrates the old bromide about how some of the best establishments... More

We enjoyed our evening at the Solo Bistro. Everything was quite good including the service and meals. Our group sampled the Solo Burger, the Cajun shrimp and the Prix Fixe dinner. No complaints. Good timely service, pleasant presentation with locally sourced ingredients. Everything was good. However, nothing exceeded expectations or was stellar. Maybe it was just that evening but Solo...

Kathy and I had a wonderful experience. While I write this review some time out from the dinner the memory is very fresh. Our appetizers were exceptional, I had the duck, one of my test foods in that it is either done just right or not edible. My duck was beyond just right and at a perfect temperature. Kathy had...

The food was good and a nice wine selection is available. They were not very busy but still sat us in a weird spot and we felt the wait staff could have been friendlier for sure.

We were a party of four and spent a delightful evening at Solo Bistro. The reasonably priced Pinot Blanc was lovely and went well with my vegan risotto (spinach, walnuts, coconut milk - yummie!) and the mussels with fries and the pan crusted gnocchi the others enjoyed. The interior is warm and welcoming, as is the staff. We'll be back!

Despite a somewhat crowded atmosphere, Solo Bistro deserves an Excellent for the amazing service and wonderful dishes. We were looking to try something other than the fish and seafood we had been feasted on in Maine for several days and this was a great choice. Each dish was special, from the fresh green salad and the brussels sprouts to the... More
