Outstanding food in an intimate setting. Great staff and chef! We are never disappointed. The furniture, décor, and bathrooms are older and are but are very clean and have a European flare. The food is the star.

The owner and the chef have added special nights during the week, such as a special fish night, when each course is based on fish. I went with my husband and brother-in-law, and each course was inventive and melted in our mouths! Each of us...More

Food is good and presented as a fine dining setting. The furniture for one needs to be upgraded to be called a fine restaurant. We opted for a la carte with 4 appetizers (small/tiny). Salmon Tartare is OK, fresh but has that 'mayo & onion'...More

The interior and furnishings are very plain, and the lights flicker from the 100 year old building, you assume. But the menu is good, with a dozen items you might really like. I got a mushroom soup that had some flavor, but the 3 ounces...More

At Sola, our mission is to be regarded as an outstanding fine dining destination & a valued treasure of the Main Line & greater community. We strive to serve contemporary cuisine in an intimate & pleasing room with the proper level of service (not too much, not too little). We want our guests to enjoy the window of time that they spend with us, savoring their food & wine & enjoying the company of their friends & family. Our intent is to always remain a BYOB, knowing how important that is to many of our guests. Sola will provide a dynamic menu, driven by what is available fresh for the season. The expectation is that everyone will find a number of choices that appeal to their palate. Our wish is that most of our guests will become regulars & will view us a spot they can enthusiastically recommend to their friends & can rely on when hosting visitors.
