Was lucky enough to secure a Valentine reservation here so took my fiancee out last night to a wonderful dinner. Food was top notch as per usual. Bread was a great starter, especially with that tomato spread they include, wish I had the recipe haha. For an appetizer we had the artisan cheese plate which was wonderful and laid out... More

Our daughter attends the University of South Carolina. We were looking for a nice place to eat that was outside of the Vista/Five Points area we usually go to. I found this place on Tripadvisor based on the ranking. I was pleasantly surprised when we pulled up and saw the restaurant. I love the outside look and feel of the... More

We were only in Columbia for two days and ate at Solstice both evenings. We were so impressed with the food and service the first night , we brought our daughter there for her graduation the next evening. The service was impeccable and everything we had was fabulous!

Solstice has become my go-to date night restaurant. My husband and I love the menu and the wine list is extensive. The staff is very knowledgeable of flavors and can recommend wine pairings. The restaurant consists of 3 main areas: the bar, main dining room, and private dining room. The atmosphere is elegant and very plush. We have dined in... More

This is probably the nicest place to dinner in style in the Northeast of Columbia - and well worth driving from downtown to dinner at. The food is so elegantly presented, a phenomenal did experience with an outstanding wine bar selection. You will need reservations on busy nights for sure. They even have a night each month where kids are... More

Learned this was a sister restaurant of Mr. Friendly's, and since we live in the Northeast, we had to visit. The food was just as good although the atmosphere was not as electric. I had to have the buttermilk fried chicken dinner again and my husband had a fish special of the day. Both were excellent! Mixed green salad is... More

Met the wife's sister here for dinner. Had the Fried Green Tomatoes for an appetizer! We weren't sure about the pimento cheese on top...boy were we wrong! Add candied bacon!! Wowza! Delish! Meals were excellent also. We'll be back when we return to the area again.

This was my first shrimp and grits. I have never been a fan but it was here that I found out I like grits, stone ground grits. The shrimp and grits here are a must try. Also had a curry soup that wasn't very Caribbean curry, but great nonetheless. Their bread comes out with a nice tomato-cream-cheese tasting butter that... More

Had never visited this establishment but went on the recommendations made by so many other Trip Advisor guests. We made an 8:15 pm reservation but my wife was hungry at 7:00 so we headed over early. We arrived about 7:15, and had to wait. Could barely find a parking place. It was packed. We saw a friend there and went... More

Our cuisine can be labeled many things, but it is most definitely seasonal. Our service is professional, yet far from stuffy. Our décor is modern, yet simple, and our wine list is extensive. Perhaps most important of all, everyone from our servers and bartenders, to our chefs and management, are among the most dedicated service industry professionals in our community.
