Always a great night at Solstice. Our server was incredible. The food was beautiful and delicious. We came for a late dinner and they didn’t make us feel rushed at all to leave (even though we were the only ones there by the end). Gracious and welcoming. Thanks Solstice!!

Decent food, very quiet evening (we were the only ones there; not sure why. Reviews aren’t bad on OpenTable). Service should have been 100% attentive and the waiter was super nice, but was distracted by the game on the TV. We won’t return.

Food was great as was the service. We have eaten here many times and I noticed that the wine list was shorter and more expensive than before. They are offering 20% off a bottle of wine if you order their set menu, unfortunately nothing on the set menu appealed to us..is that why the wine prices are higher than before, to accommodate the discount?

We booked this restaurant with for our dinner with our very special friends, I was late so I phoned to let the staff know and could they please sit our dinner guests. They were seated at the best seat in the house. Our waitress was patient as our guests had special diet restrictions, our food came in time hot and very delicious. I had the Cesar salad with salmon, my husband had the papardelle pasta al fughi..my guests had chicken Parmesan and seafood paella..just delicious. They did not rush us, we ordered excellent cappuccino and espresso the waitress was a doll. She was attentive very professional and was just pleasant. Love this place what a nice, place also I called in because I was late, the person whom answered was not angry was very happy to accommodate and said not to worry, we will see you! How nice and felt like just being at a good friends house for dinner..delicious Italian food, for us Italians..sometimes we want to eat out and this spot hit the spot! authentic tasting Italian food.

We were well treated from making our reservation, to greeted at the door, an explanation of the restaurant and services, quick refreshment service. The hostess was fast, friendly, took plenty of time to explain menu items. The meal was perfectly paced. We were very pleased not to be rushed. A great experience for the four of us.

Welcoming staff in a quiet, low key space where classics are given a little extra tlc. Generous portions allow you to enjoy your meal and take the "extra" home..if you can stop before it's all gone that is.

We both enjoyed our food (veal with pasta and seafood with pasta). Service was friendly and reasonably prompt. Waiter was very friend and helped with the meal selection. Desert was nice but the selection was filled with a lot of gelato choices(too many).
Will go again.

This is a long time favourite of ours. I was surprised when I asked for the 6:00pm time that I was offered either earlier or later. When we arrived at 6:15pm there was almost no one in the restaurant. It got busier much later but we had an entire section to ourselves for a long time and the area never filled up. I would not use open table again, I would just call the restaurant and get the time I wanted. I also found the appetizer items much more expensive than in the past so passed on them. I would have liked the waitress to given us the price to the specials. I worry that the prices are getting too high for a casual meal but the quiet room is appreciated as some restaurants are becoming too noisy.

Nice restaurant. It was a Wednesday night and it was my girlfriend's birthday. I saw on Opentable the rate is 4.6 that is why I selected this restaurant. Not very noisy and 3 tables of customers are celebrating birthdays! They have special price for selected combos which are really nice and good in cost. The octopus appetizer is great and is must be ordered! We also order a salad, one seafood+ rice and one steak for main course, dessert are also good. The service is a little lag as we are so hungry. However, service is very kind and care, I had an important phone call for around 20 minutes and there is no push on the bill although it is nearly the time of restaurant closing. The decoration is not 100% modern but very comfortable. Overall, it is an amazing place to eat due to the taste of food, calm environment, great service, and cost effective price. Highly recommend!

We went for Taste of Clarkson. The food was so delicious that I'm going again in a week! I got the octopus appetizer and the octopus was grilled nicely, it was nice and tender, not chewy at all and the combination with the arugula and fennel and that spritz of fresh lemon rounds it off so wonderfully (my friend that doesn't eat octopus loved it too). The seafood paella was my entree, I loved how they did not skimp out on the seafood, it had plenty of squid, shrimp, mussels and chorizo. It was also nice and hot (temperature wise) when it came out and while I was eating it, and it didn't cool down very quickly. And the dessert, I got the Canada 150 cheese cake jar, what can I say except for the jar was too small, I wanted more!!! The people were nice and friendly. I'm looking forward to going back in a few days!!! The food was so delicious that I cleaned the whole plate (before and after pictures). There isn't an after picture of the octopus appetizer because it was so good, that I ate the plate! :)

Four of us went to Solstice for Taste of Clarkson. The food was good with a nice local wine selection. It's fairly open so was a bit loud when we arrived, but nothing annoying. The staff were very nice, but somewhat slow - we had to ask for bread twice and also sometimes ask for water refills.

I have been to Solstice many times and had a positive experience. This most recent dinner was awful. The sauce on the veal parmesan tasted as if it came out of a can. The service was extremely slow and it took ages for our meal to arrive. I will not go back anytime soon.

The only "negative" element is the noise level. Even when the restaurant is not at capacity it can be difficult to carry on a conversation. We were a table of three and had to lean in to hear each other.

Noise is common in most establishments - acoustical ceilings don't seem to be part of the consideration.

Otherwise it is a great spot lunch/dinner/drink.
