Stopped in for the Sunday night special chicken dinner. Fabulous portion, exceptionally moist, terrific value. Enough to split with one other person. Come hungry. Will be back. !!

We went last week for lunch. There were very few people there on a Tuesday. I was really hungry and ordered two separate items, Steamed Black Muscles and an Arugula Salad which was supposed to come with goat cheese. The salad was fine and fresh but there was no goat cheese which was a bit disappointing - it still was... More

I came in knowing I wanted breakfast. Had a cinnamon roll that must be equated with heaven on earth via tastebuds. I got the topping which I believe is a cream cheese delight with pecans. Well I did split it with my husband as it was large enough for sure. I had to hold the plate down to prevent hubby... More

I have been to the restaurant quite a few times over the last couple of years so when we had friends in town I thought it would be the perfect place to take them for great food and an overall great experience. I was a little disappointed and slightly embarrassed. It was a Friday night at they were busy but... More

The second of the two floors at Solace has tables, a large bar area, and outdoor seating. The service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere very relaxed On a Friday night there were plenty of people without the crammed feeling some places have on similar nights Drink options range from beer to unique cocktails - try the 'Dude abides'...

We stopped at Solace for an appetizer and drinks during our visit to Encinitas. Nice, comfortable atmosphere. Enjoyed our appetizer (cheese and meat platter with two sauces). The only downside was it took quite a while to be waited on, very frustrating since several servers and other waitpersons walked by us numerous times without even acknowledging us. Once our server...

When this place first opened up about 4 years ago, we went to it four times in one week. We just couldn't have enough of it. Interestingly enough, they took the best dishes off the menu. This is a pattern that keeps on repeating itself. It was so frustrating, that we finally gave up on visiting it. It is definitely... More
