The food was average; certainly did not live up to the rave reviews I had read in the press; however for kosher restaurants I'm willing to accept that it won't be a "great food experience" - ( i've dined at kosher restaurants in LA and London England so I'm not "new" to the "kosher experience"- my son is kosher - we are not) BUT what is not forgivable is the worst service I have ever experienced in my 40 plus years of restaurant dining; I found a chunk of pottery in my rice dish - could not get the waiters attention - he was and had been for sometime ignoring us - entertaining a couple at another table - so much so I had to ask when our bill was presented who were they- just friends of his he hadnt seen in a long time:!! when my husband finally got the attention of the manager - the manager's response was less than appropriate - made us feel as if we had planted it in the dish in order to get a free meal - THIS RESTAURANT DOES NOT DESERVE ANY OF THE ACCOLADES I HAD READ ABOUT IN THE NYC PRESS. Do not go. Very disappointed

This was my first time at SOLO. I've been to supposed five star Kosher restaurants, including Prime Grill (same owner). This is by far the best. The staff were great - friendly and very professional.

I started with the Field Green Salad with a dressing that was a bit overpowering but my main course, Seared Red Snapper was incredible! For dessert I had some crispy apple tart-like dish with vanilla ice cream. Not sure of exact name but that too was great. The presentation was nice, the atmosphere and decor is fine and romantic. If I have to take my family to a Kosher place, this would be it.
