OK place to stop for a drink or coffee. OK for lunch as well. Nice interior and peaceful. A bit expensive for the area.

well as you can see by the stats and reviews, a bit all over the place, I took a chance on this place primarily cause of its location near the ballet. So one of the main complaints about Soluna was its service. So I see...More

Due to a lack of planning, we stumbled upon this little hideaway on the recommendation of a questionable local whilst scrambling to locate a decent meal prior to seeing Hamilton at the Orpheum, a couple blocks away. The entire street smells like urine so we...More

Right in the heart of a city, this place lured me with their "Civic Burger". I mean really, really good burger. Great atmosphere for dinner or lunch with professional and friendly staff. Finally, try their "dark callebaut chocolate mousse" for dessert. You might like it:-)

Good atmosphere to hold a conversation. Music subtle, lighting low. Seated immediately for dinner, but very slow service. Arrived about 6:15, food served after 7 pm. Placed order and then told that our choices were no longer available. We should have left then, but too...More

Good location (especially for theater), nice atmosphere. But the food and the service are poor. Grilled Cesar salad was barely grilled (one heart of romaine was ungrilled and undressed), the beet salad had almost no beets (mostly arugula), the fish (cod) was much too salty....More

Civic Center is not known for fine dining, but it does offer some hidden gems. I highly recommend Soluna Cafe & Lounge for a bite. The staff are courteous, professional and friendly. The decor is relaxing and spacious. The food is reasonable priced and generously...More

We ate lunch here on a Friday afternoon and it was not crowded. The lunch menu had gourmet twists on typical foods (goat cheese on the veggie burger, unique cheeses on their grilled cheese sandwich). The veggie burger was good but the bun was really...More

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.
