Very friendly family type restaurant, was going here for a family dinner and was greeted at the door with ". . you must be Uncle Tony!". Food was good, portions were plentiful and were well attended by the staff. As with most of the family style Italian restaurants in the Northeast the gravy was flavorful and was substantial, unlike the... More

Last night I brought my wife and kids. Walked in at 6:55PM. Place was half empty. THEY TURNED US AWAY SAYING THEY WERE FULY BOOKED WITH RESERVATIONS FOR... More

Lauren C, General Manager at Solaris Restaurant, responded to this review

Hello Robert, I apologize for the delay in responding to your review. I also apologize for your experience. We have quite the small space, and Saturdays fortunately for us have been very busy which have led to a required reservation. Although the restaurant appears empty at 6:45 it it completely full by 8 pm with reservations that are usually all... More

Went on a Saturday night for a small party. Service was ok but not very attentive. Waiter brought someone the wrong dish and kept questioning me about mine. My dish was correct! It was strange. Then the entertainment began and it was so loud we couldn't even talk. This lounge type singer was ok, but never took a break. Appetizers... More

Haven't eaten at Solari's in a while, but I still recall the fantastic meal I had there. Very nice decor and ambience which is a welcome change from the typical and unremarkable restaurants in the area. Good reputation for consistent Italian fare.

Found this place online. Went there with my copilot. Arrived early at 5pm, immediate seating. Ordered a bottle of Amarone, wonderful. Had the Cajun Calamari, which was sweeter than spicy, but quite good. I ordered the rack of lamb which was awesome. My copilot ordered the Chilean Sea bass which was the best Sea bass I have ever had. Topped... More

It is so refreshing that in this busy world, Solari's still exists to serve their clientele in a unused manner. A lost art in many restaurants these days. The staff is accomodating and attentive. Wines by the glass are good as well. Appetizers and entrees have always been delicious and flavorful.

The service and appetizer was excellent Wilson was attentive and pleasant.. The only negative was the Dessert, A Cannoli was hard and very sweet. Tasted like a frozen or store bought. But overall I will be back.
