I had a most enjoyable dinner at this restaurant on a Sunday in March. They took reservations for our fairly large party of 8, and our table was ready and waiting when we got there. The side streets were very crowded and the restaurant lot is quite small, but the friendly valet whisked our car away and returned it promptly... More

I have been going to Solar for years and usually have a good experience. Past few times their attitudes have gotten obnoxious and their food used to be way better. I booked a group of 20 for my birthday a few days ago. When I called to book the man who answered sounded like I was inconveniencing him by trying... More

What a great place. The rodizio was excellent the food just kept coming. The meat is done to your taste. They were constantly bringing us more food. Homestyle fries and rice, fried bananas. The best Sangria is just taste soooo good. Great for a special occasion or just dinner with your family.

Excellent Brazilian fare hidden in an off the beaten track kind of location. If you are a steak lover you will not be disappointed here. The meat is tender and juicy, and the place has a nice charm to it. Recommended!

I went here with a group of friends and it was alright. It was very loud and the space is very small. Lots of options to choose from. If you're a meat lover you will love this place. Nice place if you're looking for Spanish/Portuguese food.

The best Sangria we have ever had. Its the never ending pitcher of greatness. We have been going here for years, and now that our kids are over 21, we have introduced them to this place. They love it also..The best service and seafood and their steaks are cooked to perfection.,

Most at the table of 8 could not finish their churascuo misto and took it home. Some of us got rodizio, an endless parade of lean grilled meats carved to your perfection of doneness at your table. I enjoyed the rare prime rib, sirloin, rib eye, chicken wrapped in bacon and chicken hearts. Yucca, black beans, rice and chimichurra accompany... More
