“What a wonderful birthday lunch”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

I had the pleasure on Sunday of attending a long lunch at Solicit. The experience was delightful. We were greeted at the door and entered a warm, cosy inviting space. The food was extraordinary, innovative, cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. The service was exceptional. A wonderful restaurant experience I'd highly recommend to anyone.

“"Always something new on the Menu"”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

We always love coming to eat here when we are in Hobart. Dined in the room with the fireplace so it was very cosy and warm on a cold evening. The food is always prepared with local fresh ingredients and the menu changes regularly so there is always something new to try. We will be back again.

“We just popped in and had a great meal !”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

We didn't know anything about this restaurant as we just walked past it - lucky they had a spare table as both the food & service was great and very tasty.
We'll definitely eat here again next time we come to Hobart. I do have a small complaint to make though - when making famous well known cocktails make sure the correct amount of alcohol is used. Said that, they happily made the next one perfect.
We enjoyed our meal immensely, thank you :)

“Not your average bear”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 via mobile

To paraphrase Yogi this place is not your average restaurant.

Our family of four (Mum, Dad, 7 & 11) went for a Mother's day lunch and had a great lunch.

Even booking over the phone earlier in the week added to the experience with care taken about the kids and the suitability of the menu.

Make sure your kids are up for some out there offerings, this is not a chicken nuggets and chips type place.

The decor and furnishings were quirky and tasty, edgy and somehow old fashioned at the same time. A bit like Solicit itself.

Suggest it is more of couples or dinner party type of place.

“Consistently Excellent and Fresh”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

We are regular diners at Solicit, and often take our friends from interstate and overseas there while they are in Hobart. We have never had anything less than highly favourable comments from friends and other guests alike.

While this restaurant offers a stable core of well-considered and beautifully-prepared menu choices, they are always ready to try new dishes and variations on popular others. Sometimes the descriptions may challenge the mind, but we have rarely encountered one of these that was an unwelcome addition to our dining experience.

The service is always friendly and welcoming, and the host, Joan, is a lady who pays careful attention to her customers, never being too far away, but always considerate of your need for time and space to make your choices and enjoy your meals and your company.

We can highly recommend Solicit.
