“Another great lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Just want to say that again Solace delivered with an outstandingly fresh tasty lunch today. The quinoa burger is amazing! I had mine without the bun but added mushrooms and avocados. It was just what I needed. Service is also very good and you never feel rushed here at this nice little gem downtown Encinitas.

“Excellent Brunch....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Just got back from enjoying a wonderful brunch at Solace & Moonlight Lounge on Super Bowl Sunday.
We were warmly welcomed by Kelsey, and taken upstairs where I noticed the delighful and warm decor. Our waiter was David, and he was personable and attentive. We started with a Bellini cocktail, which was the right touch for me.....champagne with peach puree. For brunch, I ordered biscuits and gravy, with sausage & bacon, and ordered scrambled eggs, instead of fried eggs. I am not a big fan of bacon and sausage, but WOW, it was just so delicious!! And, the biscuits and gravy were just wonderful, the main reason I ordered this dish, and it did not disappoint! My husband ordered the cheesy scrambled eggs with grits and bacon, and found it all to be very good.
I must mention that at one point, a employee opened a roll-up door near to us, and I, and another customer nearby found it to be too cool, although we didn't complain. She must have noticed, since she came around and closed it, and then apolgized for any discomfort that it may have caused. I found this to be very kind and considerate and appreciated her concern.
I would very much recommend this restaurant, and I look forward to a return visit!

“Encinitas Hip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Southern California vibe in a modern wood interior setting. Food is basic and healthy with a twist of gourmet pairings. Well located in and among some cool shops for browsing.

“great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is a great spot for an evening of drinking cocktails and sucking back oysters and other tasty treats. Go upstairs to the bar or the big table and on Sunday they have live music, sort of a strange day, but it works.

“Great find in Encinitas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Dined here on NYE, and had a wonderful experience! Choices were 3 course prix fix, or limited selections off the menu. Cheese plate, salad and appetizers were very fresh and tasty. Beef cheek entree was melt in your mouth delicious, salmon entree was cooked perfectly. Very solid, reasonable mostly CA wine list, and even the kids menu was adventorous and delicious (Ferro Mac and cheese with chicken). Cool setting, very fresh, creative menu, and outstanding service.
