“Sola deserves all the raves!”

Sola Bistro & Wine Bar
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$9 - US$28
Description: Sola is a casual bistro-style restaurant with an eclectic menu featuring specials influenced by world cuisines, and of course, our own Armenian and Russian roots. While the menu has a great selection of Mediterranean dishes, we love experimenting with unique ingredients, and fuse different techniques and preparations with the best products we can acquire. Similarly, the wines we offer are carefully selected from the world over to compliment our wide range of internationally inspired dishes. Located on St Pete Beach, FL, we feature the best seafood around, source very high quality meats and poultry, and make as much as possible in-house, thus cutting out the unnecessary preservatives and chemicals. We strive to create and serve only the freshest food and the best wines, at very reasonable price, in a comfortable, relaxed bistro-style atmosphere.

This small, non-beachy, contemporary restaurant is absolutely marvelous. The chef and staff work together to create a sophisticated but casual dining experience.
The Steak Tartare rivaled any I had in France; the whole baked fish was exquisite;
the chicken liver pate, delicious.
They have a great wine list and a variety of entree choices, from beef to vegetarian. I look forward to going back!

A friend found this restaurant on line and we decided to try it. It's very small and intimate. The menu is varied and our waitress told us the specials change frequently based on what the chef finds that is different from what others serve in the area. She was informative on wine selections and menu choices. I would absolutely try this lovely place again and again to sample more small plates and main courses. We ordered a soup and a salad and shared branzini (European seabass) cooked to perfection.

Great food, great service and relaxing ambience for a date with my wife. We had the pork kebabs and the chicken with salsa Verde. So delicious. We topped it off with creme brulee, also excellent. Prices are really not too expensive for St Pete's Beach.

A cozy tuck-a-way in the middle of St Pete Beach! Wonderful food and wine list with great owner attention nightly. Sola's menu features many things from fresh local fish to steak, and the nightly specials give the chef a chance to really bring something unique to the table.
Personally, the Bucatini alla Carbonara can't be beat. It's the real thing!
Downtown's restaurants are nice, but come to the beach for a real foodies treat!

Hidden gem, one of the best steaks I've had, along with great service. We'll be back again without question.
