We stopped in here after a frantic search of local places for an after work date night. We were really happy with our choice. We came in on a Wednesday when they were doing a $20 tasting of 5 wines (2 Cab Franc, 1 Malbec, 2 Cab). I stayed with a pretty decent big glass of Sangria, but my partner did the 5 tastings, and really enjoyed her selection. We had the pork skewers, grilled carrots, and patatas bravas for snacks, and all were amazing. The pork was well seasoned, moist and tender, with a mint/cilantro sauce for dipping. The grilled carrots had a lot of different flavors going on, sour, sweet, spicy, smoky, but overall just really well done. The patatas bravas were what really sealed it though. Good pieces of spicy, garlicky Spanish chorizo, double fried cubed potatoes that had a great crisp outside with light, fluffy, and flavorful insides, with a spicy aioli for dipping. We came in about 530 pm, and sat at the bar, and by 545 it was starting to get packed. However, there was a basketball game on and lots of conversation, and we could still hold a good conversation between each other without having to raise our voices. The dining room looked a little empty, but that would make for a decently romantic dinner. Parking is limited so get there early or prepare to park on the street.

One of my favorite restaurants. The food is well prepared and beautifully presented. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. We go there for tapas and dinner. My favorites are the mussels and the scallops. Yum! Beautiful patio and cozy atmosphere.

I love coming here for the calamari, seafood, paella, truffle fries, and many other menu items here. Sangria is awesome if you like that kind of drink. This place is great for sampling, so share appetizers and entres alike. Outdoor space is fabulous but arrive early to get a table on a nice day. Sometimes it gets a little crowded but we usually eat early to avoid the rush.

We came here with friends for a birthday celebration and shared lots of tapas. The calamari was especially memorable. Really delicious and reasonable.

Solara's food is great... sometimes the wait staff gets really busy, so don't go if you are in a hurry. Prices are a little high for the venue/location. However, you will enjoy it. Try the calamari... very tasty.
