This is my go to restaurant in Encinitas. Oysters are always great. Steak tartare is awesome. Biscuits also delicious. My favorite is the kitchen sink-a huge serving easily can be enjoyed by 2 or 3. Brunch on the weekends and dinner any night.

Was a little tight but nice atmosphere. Staff was great.... very attentive. The steak was good, husband had the steak. I had the salmon which was excellent , cooked to perfection. A bit on the pricey side.

Sadly, the free food was to compensate for extremely poor service. We were at Solace at 7:30 on a Friday night. It was full, but Open Table had reservations available every 15 minutes. Started well with a cocktail order, first course was a little slow,...More

Went in with a couple business associates. Ordered Local Sea Bass. It was very fresh, grilled to perfection - crispy skin with very tender and juicy inside. The ancient grain and vegetables side were very good too. "Thick as thieves" local IPA was excellent as...More
