I have been a few times, service is spotty. The food is good, not great though for 5 stars. The wine selection is not spectacular either for being a wine bar. Expected more.

My wife Pat and I enjoyed absolutely fabulous music by an outstanding jazz quartet this evening, while drinking lovely wine, and enjoying great food. My rib-eye was wonderful, the soup and salad was great, and the special jazz-night dessert was simply fantastic!

Cozy little place but the food was not great. Fish was overcooked, bucatini carbonara was poor with barely and pancetta, honeycomb cake was plain, tasteless and dry.

Dined with the in-inlaws at Sola Bistro last evening. Dinner was on the early side so we had most of the restaurant to ourselves. The service was excellent. Wine recommendations were spot on! The spot is quaint and more updated than pictures I had seen...More

Tried this small owner, operator spot on last visit to st Pete beach. Very happy! Wine selection good. Cheese, including house made burrata, and charcuterie very good. Our filet and sides were good but nothing special. Recommend for a bottle of wine and a nosh.

After reading all the reviews, we expected more from Sola. Restaurant could use some updating, especially the chairs and menus. Waitress was nice but was seen on her phone back near the bar a few times and we waited more than once for more water,...More

Anything on St. Pete beach is pretty casual. There is no dress code, but I would say most people who were eating here were very casually dressed. It is not a swimsuit and coverup place, but not a dress up place either... More

Sola is a casual bistro-style restaurant with an eclectic menu featuring specials influenced by world cuisines, and of course, our own Armenian and Russian roots. While the menu has a great selection of Mediterranean dishes, we love experimenting with unique ingredients, and fuse different techniques and preparations with the best products we can acquire. Similarly, the wines we offer are carefully selected from the world over to compliment our wide range of internationally inspired dishes. Located on St Pete Beach, FL, we feature the best seafood around, source very high quality meats and poultry, and make as much as possible in-house, thus cutting out the unnecessary preservatives and chemicals. We strive to create and serve only the freshest food and the best wines, at very reasonable price, in a comfortable, relaxed bistro-style atmosphere.
