Solano's is one of the better dining options in La Quinta but it does come with the typically high desert prices. We did have a thoroughly enjoyable dinner on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was busy (including several diners braving a very cool evening under heat lamps on the outdoor patio). However, the service was attentive and most friendly. The food was better than average - the crab cake appetizer were sufficiently crispy and not lacking in real crab meat, the tortilla soup (a daily special) tangy and the raspberry and Brie cheese quesadilla very tasty though more than enough for two people. Solano's does fish very well - I had the salmon with huckleberry sauce (the fish was perfectly cooked - medium rare) while our son had the peacan crusted sand dabs (a healthy sized portion). My wife ordered the pomegranate scallops and prawns which she thoroughly enjoyed (unlike another reviewer it was cooked the properly). The desserts are fabulous - I thoroughly enjoyed the apple crisp but it was large enough to feed the entire table!
