We tend to eat family style, each ordering something different so we can get different tastes. They have a delicious appetizer of smoked black mussels that were simmered in a delicious smoky tomato sauce, we had to ask... More

Solace is a fabulous lounge/restaurant to visit while visiting or driving through this quaint beach town. The view from the patio is spectacular - beautiful sunset on a June/July evening. I recommend reservations. The salmon was wild and delicious. They did not use butter so it was super healthy. The sea bass was also very good. This is fun for... More

Stopped in for the Sunday night special chicken dinner. Fabulous portion, exceptionally moist, terrific value. Enough to split with one other person. Come hungry. Will be back. !!

We went last week for lunch. There were very few people there on a Tuesday. I was really hungry and ordered two separate items, Steamed Black Muscles and an Arugula Salad which was supposed to come with goat cheese. The salad was fine and fresh but there was no goat cheese which was a bit disappointing - it still was... More

I came in knowing I wanted breakfast. Had a cinnamon roll that must be equated with heaven on earth via tastebuds. I got the topping which I believe is a cream cheese delight with pecans. Well I did split it with my husband as it was large enough for sure. I had to hold the plate down to prevent hubby... More

I have been to the restaurant quite a few times over the last couple of years so when we had friends in town I thought it would be the perfect place to take them for great food and an overall great experience. I was a little disappointed and slightly embarrassed. It was a Friday night at they were busy but... More
