If you want an artisan style pizza, this is your place! Or maybe a really tasty cup of soup, or a delicious salad.. But maybe you are just needing a little comfort, so the Mac & Cheese? Great variety on this menu! And the location is wonderful. There's a park nearby on the waterfront and a walking trail that goes... More

Met a group of friends for lunch and heard nothing but 'no'. No reservations. No separate checks. No major boutique beers. Minimal wine selection.

We discovered this little place couple years ago and each and every time we go to Portland we dine there. The service is great and the food is so good, we never had a bad meal there. I love their salads and soups and kids devour pizzas.

We visited Solstice on a Monday night and didn't have to wait, though the restaurant filled up soon after we arrived. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, a 'perfect' waitress.

They were very crowded the night we ate here, but we had great service! Pizzas were wonderful and our group loved all of the beer selections.

I love and hate Solstice which is a mark of any great restaurant. I love Solstice because the food and the atmosphere are wonderful for families, couples and everything in between. I however hate long waits and the fact that I can only eat so much at one time ;p

Went on a Sunday night and was lucky to get a table. They offered a great variety of local beers on tap and the pizza wasn't bad. The location would no doubt have an amazing view in the daylight.

I loved my first experience eating at this great restaurant! My daughter and I sampled and shared some great items, some from each category! Great lunch experience for both of us. Will return someday.

They have imaginative toppings on their pizzas. Food in general is very goid, great wine list and local beers. Can get crowded and noisy on a weekend evening
