Newburgh locals found El Solar and the wonderful food served in an elegantly friendy manner to be just the place for a romantic special dinner or an intimate conversation with close friends. Jose and Giselle were absolutely wonderful hosts and the food and service were superb. Osso buco and the shrimp and avocado in tomato were the best. Great place... More

Started with a delicious glass of sangria, friends had other types of cocktails. Our table enjoyed a variety of cuisines including pasta Bolognese, pork chops, pork medallions in... More

Although the ambience was pleasant and the service gracious (owner), the entrees were bland. This Italian restaurant with some supposedly French touches seemed to lack the basics of olive oil, garlic and French or Italian seasonings. Well traveled afficionados of French, Italian and Spanish restaurants, we also enjoy cooking for each other. We found that the chef favors salt but... More

The food is consistently good, as is the service. The chef has unique specials every week and we have never had a bad meal ever. I love it.

Tends to be very aggressive with its menu and offers too many specials. Should try to focus on the dishes that are popular and good. Also a bit pricey for the area and its offerings. Very friendly atmosphere.

Thank you so very much for taking time reviewing our restaurant, very important for us your feedback and comments, specially from somebody who review more than 30 places along Hudson Valley. But unfortunately we can't say sorry for offering "TOO MANY SPECIALS", in our understanding, specials are variety of flavors and that is what Solar Cafe is all about, we... More

Tasty and thoughtful menu and wine list. Trippa Stoffata was really well done. The erzatz pistachio ice cream was especially disappointing after I had been assured it was the real thing.
