Went to Solo for dinner and sat at the bar downstairs. The bartender was really nice and super friendly and we had a great time eating and chitchatting with her. We started off our dinner with the fried oysters which were so delicious. Then split a salad and then proceeded to have the lobster rigatoni and the cod loin special.... More

Went for dinner while visiting relatives. The drinks were interesting and tasty. The menu had a good list of choices including gnocchi, shrimp and grits, steak, burgers and more. Our server was nice and offered suggestions without being too intrusive during our conversations. I would definitely return.

My wife and I have been loving this little place right in downtown Bath for years. We sat in the first dining room overlooking the open kitchen and had a wonderful meal. I had a beautifully cooked steak and my wife had a fabulous gnocci dish - it's always a great meal when both of you are jealous of the... More

Scandinavian based decor tastefully done. Small and varied menu but still hard to choose or go wrong with your choice. The Frits and hanger steak has been my favorite for years. Save room for desert.

It was difficult to see the restaurant on this snowy night, but we found it with GPS. We were instantly seated and truly enjoyed the fine food and excellent service.

New menu written daily and only the freshest food available will be prepared and served. On Wednesday they give you a prefix which includes a 3 course dinner and dessert. Food melts in your mouth as you savor every bite!

Our party really enjoyed the food and the service here. The place itself is really small and if you are claustaphobic, this place probably isn't for you. You are very, very close to other patrons, even having to get up from your chair so they can get in or out of their space! Other than that small issue, this restaurant... More

We have long wanted to dine at Solo but are seldom in the Bath area in the evening so since we were staying nearby decided this was our chance! After a day roaming around Boothbay Harbour, Wiscasset, etc. we wandered around Bath (a charming place) before our reservation at Solo. We were greeted well and seated and had a chat... More

My husband and I went to Bath for a short getaway in September. Our hotel had recommended four other places. Through TripAdvisor, we found Solo Bistro and - thanks to other reviewers - gave it a try. Our dinners were delicious, so much so, we went back a second night. The food was interesting, very good, beautifully prepared and served... More

We chose Solo Bistro based on others' reviews. It deserves its fine ratings. The food was great and much was locally sourced. Imagine fresh oysters from the last town you drove through! Desserts were heavenly. Solo is definitely the best restaurant in this charmingly historic downtown.
