We came here for Mother's Day today - I wanted to try something new. Their website said they'd have breakfast and lunch. We were not the only ones disappointed with the menu. I wish I would have known what it was before we made the reservation. Besides that, my food was okay. My husband had some fettuccine meal and the... More

Four of us had a relaxing Sunday evening meal. Started with cocktails, including local beer for one of us. The wine list asw very good, with selection of Italian and domestic wines, at a reasonable price point. If you enjoy steak tartar, their version, Tartara di Manzo, was a very inventive creation. For a salad, the Insalata Cesare alla Griglia... More

Solare is one of many restaurants in Liberty station and for gourmet food it's the one to choose. We had grilled calamari to start and both of us, being regular calamari eaters around the world, trout it was the best ever. Mains were special tortellini and seafood stracciatelli. Both brilliant. The restaurant calls itself Italian but it more than that,... More

We've been to Solare for their wine dinners, cooking classes, and have eaten a few dinners there. This is the first time we've tried their Easter brunch, and I highly recommend it. My husband had the breakfast pizza, and I had the spinach and mushroom crepes with mushroom sauce. Amazing! I just hope it makes it on to the regular... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. I went there for a meeting the other day and it looked so good that we decided to come back for dinner. The meal was outstanding, the service was first rate and the cocktails were excellent. What else can I say? We'll be back.

Last minute decision to eat here, but a good choice. Very Gluten Free for an Italian restaurant. Everything seemed to be made to order, and based on their Farm to Table claims, I'll agree with that. Food was good. Service was good and a bill over $100 was expected and along the lines of other places for the same meal.... More

Solare excels in all respects as one of the best Italian fine dining establishments. The restaurant is large and very well designed, featuring gorgeous private dining rooms with wine rack walls as well as a full bar and spacious dining areas. The Staff recommended the Tasting Menu which consisted of: Insalata-lettuce wedge in egg mouse with mustard seed caviar. This... More

Solare is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. We walked in for dinner with a group of seven and no reservation, and they put us in a beautiful private dining room. We were immediately greeted by our server, Joseph, who was absolutely incredible. He was very attentive and friendly, and he was so knowledgeable and passionate... More

Have been here previously for dinner and had a five star experience, rating this little gem at Liberty Station in Point Loma again for their happy hour.
