If there's a way to give a negative star rating...this restaurant deserves it. We had a reservation at 5:45 pm hoping to make an 8:00 pm theatre show. We were seated at 6:15... which was not a problem since we still have plently of time.

No service, water, b&b plates, knife for butter, full drinks, or napkins.
It all helps if expecting a tip. Got fifty cents..... that is what is deserved. I got spoiled micros and couldnt get anyones attention for help. The mixed greens that are a bedding for the calamari was spoiled and the host had the nerve to argue with me upon sending the food back, WORD FOR THE WISE--" the guest is always right"!!!! Having to go to the the bar for every round of drinks eventually p issed me off. I get my own drink, send the server home. save some overhead.
Its a shame that the new ownership doesnt have the opperations in consistancy. It helps to get return buisiness. I, as well as my coworkers, friends, and family will never contribute to the failure of a once very welcome and comfortable eat. Upon cashing out the server had the audacity to give us two singles and a ten dollar bill, asuming after we spent $150.00 and wasted our time that she would get a generous tip..........Wrong..

Good spot for lunch near city hall and the Library. Good burgers. A couple of good salad choices, quiet comfortable dining room, full bar. We've eaten lunch there a couple times and can get in without waiting.

I've eaten at Soluna several times in the past three months for lunch. Everytime I've had great service and the food has been great. I must admit that I am addicted to the mac & cheese. Last time I was there the recipe had changed but it was still good. I think the atmosphere is really cool too. Whenever anyone is remotely close to the Civic Center area, I recommend Soluna and I always get rave reviews.

This is the first time we eat at this restaurant. We bought a gift certificate online but the server said the certificate is no longer available. Unfortunally we cannot use the gift certificate for the food, but we still want to try the taste of the food, so we order a 3-course dinner and a filet mIgnon. The appretizer is fine, but the filet mIgnon is very small and a little bit salty and a little bit overcook. I think this entree is too expensive $28 for the overcooked salty filet mignon with salty mashed potato and spinach. The desert is fine but a little bit too sweet to me. I don't think I will go back to this restaurant for this kind of food.

Soluna's is a regular favorite of ours. We get treated with 5 star service everytime we walk through the door. The owner Rick is very curtious and greets all of his guests with a smile. If he is unavailable the bartender Jack will promptly ask if you would like a table or just a drink. The food always comes seasoned well and piping hot. They don't rush you between courses and make sure your glass is always full. The wait staff is very attentive and knowledgable of the menu. The owner however is moving on in the end of January so we arent sure what is to become of one of our favorites.

Have visited a few times now (all dinners) and liked the food. We've always had courteous waiters - in fact, the last one we had was really funny and friendly, but very professional and attentive. When the kitchen brought out the wrong salad, he promptly got us the right one, and comped it.

Most recent meal was a late night light-bites: Pear/gorgonzola salad - excellent. Lobster bisque - excellent. Crab cakes - somewhat dry. Mussels - very good. Parmesan, White Truffle Garlic Fries - good, but nothing special, and couldn't taste any truffle or garlic.

The decor is really interesting and dramatic - lots of reds, neat-looking seating, beautiful lighting. Original artwork on walls. We've come before Opera performances, late night, or after visiting the Asian Art Museum across the street.

Everything that could've gone wrong went wrong. We were seated promptly but because we were seated in corner table, our waiter didn't notice us, waited over 15 minutes before we got served. I had scallops appetizer and they were burnt like as if they were just reheated; burnt on the outside and dry on the inside. I had the pork loin with a side of creamy potatoes. Pork loin was dry and luke-warm and the potatoes were still cold in the center. I informed our waiter and he just brought me another plate of the potatoes and reassured me this time he asked them to 'heat' it up warm but it was still cold again. My husband ordered the steak and it seemed odd when the waiter asked 'how warm do you want it' as we took it he meant 'how well you want it cooked' and my husband said 'medium'. His steak turned out to be slices of beef which was also luke-warm. I tried to make reservations for the night before but they were closed for a private party and with the food that night, it just led me to believe that we probably were served leftovers.

We were looking for a place close to the theatre prior to a performance and found this place on line. While the portions weren?t large, the taste and presentation was outstanding. The prix fix dinners are very reasonable price for a multiple course meal. The service was superb and the atmosphere causal but elegant?very romantic.

We had a birthday lunch at Soluna this week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The banquette seating was comfortable and the decor was generally very attractive. The soups (tomato and vegetable) were hot and flavorful and a nice size for a lunch appetizer. The crab cakes with corn salad were delicious and the cornbread-encrusted catfish likewise. The green salad with the catfish had a little too much dressing but this was a minor complaint. We had a very nice Pinot Grigio and the $70 total (including wine and tip) seemed very appropriate. Highly recommended.

The first thing you notice about Soluna is the nice ambiance and friendly service. Unfortunately, that's the last good thing about this restaurant. The food is below average at best and served in ridiculously small portions. The only plate that was half decent was the steak. I could see this being a fun place for drinks before the theater but for dinner...skip it.

We were there on a Thursday night and there was a jazz band! The food was awesome. We loved how their "big plates" can be bought as "small plates" instead. Everything tasted great and it was a fun place to order a few different things and share it all. This place is also really nice, comfy and has a little bit of a gallery feel because there's a local artists' work on the walls. We'll be back.

What a find! Just off Hyde and the theatre district, Soluna looked new. It was comfortable, spotless, great service and food. We were held up by an accident on the bridge; they told us not to worry when we called, held our table, then made sure we made it well before curtain time. They rushed, we didn't. The the cuisine was both familiar and unique, well presented, staff obviously proud, excellent value. Owner very approachable, greeted diners, cared that all was well. We returned after theatre and found late diners, a 4-piece jazz group, very comfortable atmosphere. Under new ownership and management, staff said they love working there. This will be our first choice for dining in the theatre area - we will definitely recommend this to friends!

This is a welcomed chage that. The place evolves over the course of the day. Check it out as a coffee shop in the morning, lunch place or club scene. You pick. It's all good.

We went to show at Orpheum last night and made an OpenTable reservation here since the menu looked interesting and the location was spot on.

What a pleasant surprise. Atmosphere was fun and the food was outstanding. I had the Watercress Salad and the Duck Breast in a wonderful caramelized sauce as a part of the Prix Fixe menu. My wife started with a Trio of Pear Salads which was an innovative takeoff of other salads such as a Nicoise combining in pear. She had the Seared Scallop appetizer as her entrée. We both finished the excellent Chocolate Espresso Pot du Crème.

Highly recommended!

Boy was i surprised, the sandwich that i had with the salad a fries was the best ever. The next time i went, i had dinner and me and my brother faught over each others food it was so good. Not to mention the beginning courses. All around with the wondeful service and great food, its still to this day one of my favorite places to eat and i hope will continue to be for a long time.

I was there last night with my boyfriend and another couple. I had asked for a booth setting and they had they ready for us after waiting 15 minutes. We all had decided to go for their fixed price menu of $27.00 for appetizer, entree and desert. I got the mango, avocado salad, very good, my boyfriend, a tomatoe salad, yummy. My friend's boyfriend got the lamb and was not happy. My friend and i both got the sea bass that was over cooked! I should have said something, but just decided to let it go, and wait for desert. Overall, I will repeat once to see if another entree is better, if not I will not return, much better for the buck. Our total for an average dinner 148.00 with drinks.

8 of us dined at Soluna for a friend's birthday on a busy Sat. night. We were sat about 1/2 hour later than our reservation called for, but the staff made it OK by provided complimentary drinks for us in the bar. The wait was pleasant in the cool bar area, and the staff was attentive throughout the evening. Friendly, professional and eager to give us a very pleasant dining experience. Excellent, creative meals, beautifully presented. PreFix menu a real bargain. Bravo to the management, chef and staff.

It was my wife's b-day, I picked Soluna because it looked like a nice place and a great menu. I WAS WRONG! Our reservation was 7:15 and we waited till 8 for our reservation. We finally got seated and it took awhile to get our apitizers (which were very good). Dinner came around 10:30 while the store manager sat at a table next to us and had his entire meal with his friends and was done by that time. All the food was cold. The mashed potatos had a crust on them. The pasta tasted like it was soaked in ovean water. We sent our food back several times. The meat was so raw it looked like seared tuna. It was a horrible night and I feel sorry for the people that attended. Needless to say they let us off the hook with the bill.

11/22/05 My friend's birthday dinner and also we were running Nikes marathon the next morning. Reservation was at 8pm but did not get seated until 9pm. The food arrived at 10:30pm. Most of us ordered pasta to load up on carbs for the race. We had to send back our food TWICE. Solunas pasta was saltier than any pickle. A medium-rare stake was first over cooked but served cold, then sent back and returned so raw it was cold inside. Bad day for the chef? But the restaurant manager was the star of the night. He set down with his friends at the table next to ours, they were done with their dinner before we got our food. Past 11pm, no bill but no food either, marathon starts at 7am, which we ran on empty stomach, try that Mr. Soluna Manager. What a nightmare, no its just sad.

I took a new coworker here to lunch and we were in and out quickly. The servers were friendly and polite and the lunch options (soups, salads, pasta) were well-portioned and affordable. Definitely one of the better lunch spots to hit around the Civic Center. If you go, try to arrive a few minutes before noon. After 12pm, the tables are usually pretty filled and there can be a short wait.

Last night we were a an event for the Asian Art. It was getting late an we had yet to eat. We were pointed in the directions of Soluna Cafe. What a great little resturant. First off we were sat right away by the host who gave us the specials and got our drink order. The service was great we wanted for nothing the whole evening. Than the food came the Crab Salad was unreal, and the chicken with beets, polenta, and vanillia thyme sauce was out of this world. I swear if I knew how to make that sauce I would............I highly recommended soluna. Oh than we danced salsa it's a lounge to. It has it all!

And we all had a great time. Dean, the manager I worked with, was very helpful in arranging seating for our large group and the service was as quite good, considering the small staff and the size of our group. My expectations for the food were modest, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the good flavor and reasonable prices. Soluna has a prix fixe dinner that's an excellent deal - any appetizer/salad, any main course (the chicken, fish, and pasta all got good marks), plus a choice of desserts (the chocolate dish, whatever it was, was absolutely *awesome* -- everyone raved how rich and delicious it was) for around $25, if memory serves. The music was reasonably low to allow for good conversation and after dinner, the place was absolutely jumping. Highly recommended! Last thing: Eat there to avoid the cover charge later.

I've been to Soluna several times to hear music and dance. We always have a fabulous time. The "Feel Good" djs and the "Relevant Sound" djs are ridiculously good. I ate there for the first time last week. Supurb!!! The seared ahi was so delicious that we ordered it twice! It's to die for. The ciopinno was great too. Do not pass go...go straight to Soluna!

We arrived on Saturday night, 7/17/04, around 8:30p. It was pretty crowded, and a DJ was spinning cool music.

I look forward to my next visit!

My last two nights at Soluna have been great. The food was delicious. I strongly recommend the sweet and spicy prawns as well as the seared ahi appetizers. A great laid back place for just drinks as well. I will definitely be back again.

I just planned a large dinner for my husband's birthday. The entire staff was so friendly and exteremely accomdating to us. The prices are so reasonable that we were pleasnetly surprised to see how affordable our bill was.

The DJ that night was awesome (hip-hop and dancehall). The entire crowd had an awesome vibe and made the night one of the best party nights that we have had!

We took a large group for a birthday party and I would have a hard time remembering a restaurant that provided a better experience for the money. The food was excellently prepared and a great value for the large portions. The service was extremely friendly and very flexible with the needs of our large group. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant was very festive. A great time was had by all. I would highly recommend this restaurant for large groups and will also be going back myself to try other items on their menu! Great food, great service and a great value!

I took my girlfriend here for dinner recently, and we were impressed. The interior was warm and comfortable, the food was tasty, and service was relaxed. We had the avocodo-mango salad, the spicy sesame prawns, the sea bass and the sirloin steak all were excellent, although I thought the salad could have used a bit more dressing. We are looking forward to our next meal here!

I almost feel guilty bragging about this place, because I do not want it to become overcrowded, but it was excellent! We had a great dinner for a very low price (check out their price fix!). Then, at 10pm, the DJs kicked in. We stayed and danced till 2am! Sweet deal!

During the day can be hectic as the local politicos vie for an excellent space for quick, great food. I tend to eat here in the evenings when it is more mellow before the clubers take over. The food matches with the decor, designed for a sensuous, pleasurable experience. The wait staff are always connecting and yet professional. The wine selection is excellent.

In Short
The long room, with dark-wood tables and plush red banquettes, sports a split personality. Politicos from the nearby government buildings pass through for a quick lunch or a round of happy-hour libations, but comeā€¦
