New menu written daily and only the freshest food available will be prepared and served. On Wednesday they give you a prefix which includes a 3 course dinner and dessert. Food melts in your mouth as you savor every bite!

Our party really enjoyed the food and the service here. The place itself is really small and if you are claustaphobic, this place probably isn't for you. You are very, very close to other patrons, even having to get up from your chair so they can get in or out of their space! Other than that small issue, this restaurant... More

We have long wanted to dine at Solo but are seldom in the Bath area in the evening so since we were staying nearby decided this was our chance! After a day roaming around Boothbay Harbour, Wiscasset, etc. we wandered around Bath (a charming place) before our reservation at Solo. We were greeted well and seated and had a chat... More

My husband and I went to Bath for a short getaway in September. Our hotel had recommended four other places. Through TripAdvisor, we found Solo Bistro and - thanks to other reviewers - gave it a try. Our dinners were delicious, so much so, we went back a second night. The food was interesting, very good, beautifully prepared and served... More

We chose Solo Bistro based on others' reviews. It deserves its fine ratings. The food was great and much was locally sourced. Imagine fresh oysters from the last town you drove through! Desserts were heavenly. Solo is definitely the best restaurant in this charmingly historic downtown.

This is a very cost restaurant with a very innovative menu, great variety and everything very fresh. There is also an interesting wine menu with nice selection of European wines in addition to US options. The salted caramel ice cream was divine . The servers were also friendly and knowledgeable

Everything was top-notch at this wonderful example of New England "coastal" cooking, with a modern feel. Local ingredients tasted fresh, and handled with love and imagination. Presentation couldn't have been better..truly a gourmet kitchen staff. And a special thanks to such a warm, friendly, well-trained staff for making 'strangers' feel at home among the locals.

Outstanding experience. Nice staff, excellent menu and wine list. Great service. Well prepared meals served to each of our party of four. Of perhaps a dozen restaurants visited by our family group over a ten day vacation, this was the standout locale. This was a delight to find, and illustrates the old bromide about how some of the best establishments... More

We enjoyed our evening at the Solo Bistro. Everything was quite good including the service and meals. Our group sampled the Solo Burger, the Cajun shrimp and the Prix Fixe dinner. No complaints. Good timely service, pleasant presentation with locally sourced ingredients. Everything was good. However, nothing exceeded expectations or was stellar. Maybe it was just that evening but Solo...
