Had never visited this establishment but went on the recommendations made by so many other Trip Advisor guests. We made an 8:15 pm reservation but my wife was hungry at 7:00 so we headed over early. We arrived about 7:15, and had to wait. Could barely find a parking place. It was packed. We saw a friend there and went... More

Great service, excellent dinner with great choices. We had a group of 25+ people for this dinner. Place was small, but everyone had a good time.

Just made another trip to Solstice Kitchen for lunch. Food is always good with great service. While the menu is great, they always have interesting specials. You should try them. Parking is not a problem.

My wife and I have been to Solstice twice, each time was a very pleasant experience. The wait staff is right on and the food presentation is superb. Well worth the premium price.

This place has great atmosphere, has great service, and the food is delicious. There were three of us. We ordered the deviled eggs, clam "chowder", and potato gnocchi. All were delicious. For dinner we had hanger steak, seared tuna, and shrimp and grits. Again all were fantastic. Tuna was sushi grade and prepared perfectly. In between our appetizer and main... More

I found this restaurant using Trip Advisor and was pleased to discover it was close to my hotel. After looking over the menu, I knew I had to try it. Solstice Kitchen did not disappoint! I ordered one of the daily specials (short ribs!). My server recommended one of their new red wines and got me a "taste" from the... More

Traveling thru Columbia, we were looking for a good place that is not a chain of the same thing up and down the country. Solstice Kitchen is a worthy place and offered great service and a good meal for a reasonable price. The Salmon is good and they know how to do southern grits well. Well decorated and comfortable with... More

I adore soft shell crab! When in season we eat everywhere they are on the menu as well as cook at home. Last spring we went to Solstice for lunch and dinner until we had to leave on a trip. Thought about the crab while traveling. Solstice wins for top soft shell hands or claws down. Took friends who agreed... More

The food is great and the customer service is just as good. I would consider the pricing in the upper middle range of pricing so it's not the most expensive but its also not on the lower end.

Went here for lunch with friends. I live in the Northeast of Columbia and there aren't many choices here when it comes to restaurants. Mostly chains or let's be frank, dumps. Solstice came recommend by co-workers. Southern food modernized or something like that? I am not from the South and was looking forward to this place. Disappointed I was. Yes... More

Our cuisine can be labeled many things, but it is most definitely seasonal. Our service is professional, yet far from stuffy. Our décor is modern, yet simple, and our wine list is extensive. Perhaps most important of all, everyone from our servers and bartenders, to our chefs and management, are among the most dedicated service industry professionals in our community.
