“Nice Experience”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

We tried a new place and we were very pleased. The food was great, especially the bruschetta and the homemade pasta. They did not have the wine we ordered, howver gave us a differnt wine at the same price. They were very concerned and hepful and great service.

“Italian in San Diego”
Reviewed 30 June 2011

I have visited Solare Lounge several times and each time was great! It is a bit small so each visit seemed to be a tad bit congested. The food is excellent, and the service is will personal attention that some restaurants lack. The wine list is varied and the waiter/waitress are happy to make suggestions. The attire ranges from causal to formal and special days (anniversity, birthdays, father/mother's day) makes this a place to visit. The only negative, I can't visit here everyday!

“Hit and Miss at this one!”
Reviewed 5 June 2011

We ate ate this restaurant twice during our trip to San Diego. The first time the food and service both would have received an excellent rating. Unfortunately, our second time the service sucked! We were scolded at the front desk for not having a reservation at 5:30. During our entire dinner, only three other tables were seated-really, did I need to be scolded for not having a reservation? After we were seated, that was it, no service! Finally, someone came and said your waiter must be busy and took our order. Busy? Really? It was a good thing that not every table was full and they were only accepting reservations! The food was slow to arrive, we never new for sure who our waiter was, and we were scolded at the door - sorry, no recommendation to my trip advisor friends.

“Best italian food”
Reviewed 17 April 2011

One of the girls at our hotel recommended this place to us and boy are we glad we took her suggestion. The lasagna was the best I ever had and my husband loved the spinach ravioli. The staff was very attentive to whatever we needed. A little pricey but well worth it.
