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. Asked friends to join us on a Tuesday for Happy Hour at Solare, which is located at the bar area or patio outside. They will feature various drink specials, Tuesdays is 1/2 off... More

Dark and restful. Center dining room with one table would be delightful for a special romantic evening. Wait staff is relaxed and knowledgeable. Wine list is varied and staff willing to share a splash or two to get to right glass. Food prepared to order and margarita pizza was excellent. Meatballs small, but tasty and moist. I had never seen... More

Having previously dined at Solare, I noticed the glass enclosed wine room in the middle of the dining room and made a reservation to take my wife out for a special night. It was fabulous! The food, the service and the ambiance were great. Solare is noted for excellent food and an extensive wine list at reasonable prices. Whether it's... More
