we were very pleasantly surprised by this delicious restaurant. They have a very eclectic offering, including vegan and vegetarian. Try the Quinoa veggie burger. Good friendly service with an interesting decor.

“Fantastic meal, fantastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

It is obvious the care that goes into the food here. Innovative, but not in a too trendy way. Fish cooked perfectly (salmon, sea bass & halibut) nice portions, great flavors. Our server, Pete, was so informative about the menu & you could tell was passionate about the menu. The oysters were so fresh-try the little buttery ones. I could live on the watermelon salad!! All our desserts were amazing-coconut cake, peanut butter/chocolate creme brûlée & the duderino "sundae". Pete suggested very nice wines, too. We left very happy!!!!

“Pleasant Surprise in Encinitas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Didn't know about Solace until my daughter in law presented me with a gift card for Fathers Day. My wife and I had dinner last week and lunch there yesterday.. Great food and recipes with new and interesting flavors. Tasty salads, entrees, and sandwiches. Located downtown next to the rail tracks. Spartan but appealing decor. Will have to try their Urban Solace restaurant in North Park.
