The meal was excellent, start-to-finish. Excellent service. The coup-de-grace was the buttermilk cake with fresh berries and creme anglaise. WOW.

Enjoyable place to grab lunch or appetizers. I like better than the sister restaurant, Mr. Friendly's. This place won't disappoint adults looking to socialize or relax. Good birthday spot too.

Great food and wine!! Located in a strip mall but don't be fooled by the Location. Main dining room, private room and a patio for outdoor dining. Ask about Ricky's other restaurants, Mr Friendly's and Cellars on Green.

After several months, we were able to get reservations in this cozy restaurant in the Spring Valley area. The meals were above average but not spectacular. The fried green tomatoes have a pimento cheese sauce which is a different take, but good. The fried oysters were above average. Solstice "Charcuterie" was also good. The serve was excellent. The decor is... More

Excellent dinner, service, and drinks. Food is locally sourced, wine list is amazing, cocktails are great, and service is top notch. Best restaurant in north Columbia.

Went there for my Birthday was not impressed. Very small portions of food. Ordered salmon and got a two inch square of salmon and a few undercooked green beans. Way overpriced

Went with a huge group for graduation. They were very accommodating and stayed on top of things even though there were a lot of us. Service was fast and friendly but not rushed- our server took the time to answer questions and make recommendations. I enjoyed their chefs choice vegetarian option and everyone in our 15+ group raved about what... More

My husband and I went here for the first time last night for our anniversary. It couldn't have been better. We did not have a reservation, so we only had to wait for 10 minutes at the bar for a table. Twist my arm. Pink Moscato was fabulous. Then we ordered the cheese plate for an appetizer... Fabulous again. I... More

Our cuisine can be labeled many things, but it is most definitely seasonal. Our service is professional, yet far from stuffy. Our décor is modern, yet simple, and our wine list is extensive. Perhaps most important of all, everyone from our servers and bartenders, to our chefs and management, are among the most dedicated service industry professionals in our community.
