Description: 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.

Very,very good does not describe the menu.

On arrival you are brought an appetizer sample that is delicious and just teases your pallet for more from this farm to fork reasteraunt. Every farmer and their time and effort are noted and the chef really knows his business. May be a wait for a table but sit back and enjoy!

At lunch today it took about 35 minutes from the time the waiter took our order until we had our food. When we commented about the length of time, the waiter told us there had been a food delivery and that had caused the kitchen to get behind. Serious? What place allows a food delivery in the middle of the lunch rush? This was my first time there and not sure it will be considered again.

Outstanding food. Everything from the sashimi appetizer to the red meat entrees were outstanding. The Krispy Kreme dessert was more than I could choke down sweetness/grease-wise, but that's the point. Service was perfect, management on top of the customers. Good environment for a nice date, business dinner. Only downside: their cocktails are very inventive in terms of the crafting, but they really ding you by not putting much alcohol at all in. And I'm not a big drinker and this was obvious. On the flip side, when they only charge 6-9 bucks for their crafted cocktails, there's not a lot to complain about. Highly, highly recommended.

Food was outstanding and the service was attentive but not intrusive. The staff was very knowledgeable and the atmosphere is very inviting.

My wife and I visited Solstice Kitchen because it was the number one ranked restaurant in Columbia at the time. The polite hostess seated us promptly upon arrival. Our waitress was friendly and exceptionally helpful with menu choices. The restaurant has a romantic allure that enabled us to ignore sitting away from a wall. We felt like we were in an intimate setting although the restaurant was reasonably full. I delighted in the Pan Roasted Atlantic Salmon and my wife enjoyed the Grilled 6 oz Filet Mignon. The moderately sized portions of meat and sides were flavorful and filling.
