We didn't have a reservation and sat in the bar area. It was fine with us, but I'd recommend making a reservation especially if you go on the weekend. Wine was good, the fish was excellent, and the dessert was awesome.

Their special the night we were there were 7 hour braised beef short ribs. I have never had anything so delicious, so awesomely tender in my life! They were immensely flavorful and out of this world outstanding. Service was excellent.

This was my first visit to Solstice. I was very impressed with the service, and the menu. They food was too notch. Prices were as expected for a restaurant of this calibre. While you could come in just about anything, think of this restaurant as a fancy dining place you take your significant other for a special date. Put on... More

We arrived in Columbia, at this restaurant, about 10 minutes before they were due to open for lunch. The workers welcomed us and immediately seated us. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and I ordered the vegetable soup special and the Gouda Mac & Cheese. The flavors of everything were wonderful.

Atmosphere is great whether you're wearing jeans or jacket and tie. Food selections are imaginative and well prepared. Never disappointed. Try it for lunch also. Back room is great for small to mid sized gatherings.

The food is always good and they have specials that stray from the ordinary, which is nice. The service is impeccable and the atmosphere is a little cramped but still comfortable enough. A little pricey, but worth it for what you get.

Was lucky enough to secure a Valentine reservation here so took my fiancee out last night to a wonderful dinner. Food was top notch as per usual. Bread was a great starter, especially with that tomato spread they include, wish I had the recipe haha. For an appetizer we had the artisan cheese plate which was wonderful and laid out... More

Our daughter attends the University of South Carolina. We were looking for a nice place to eat that was outside of the Vista/Five Points area we usually go to. I found this place on Tripadvisor based on the ranking. I was pleasantly surprised when we pulled up and saw the restaurant. I love the outside look and feel of the... More

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.
