My wife and I were in the TCI celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and had a dinner and two breakfasts at this restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, and met the chef, who explained where he found his passion for food. We also had the pleasure of being served by a wonderful waitress by the name of Celina, she made us feel so welcome and special. We will definitely go back there again on our next visit.

Had an excellent experience eating at Solana Restaurant. First I would like to say that Chef Walky laid out a fabulous spread of food for us to enjoy and the waitresses were very polite and fast. We sat near the beach and the breeze felt so good you wouldn't of thought it was in the mid 80s out there. I truly recommend you stopping by this restaurant and enjoy the taste of island cuisine prepared by Chef Walky and staff.

Thank BF107

I guess I have the dubious honour of providing the first review of this restaurant. I wish I could tell you it was as amazing as the previous restaurant that held this location - Seaside Cafe - but, unfortunately, this one pales in comparison. We started by sharing a Ceasar salad. No croutons, no bacon bits, parmeson cheese was grated, not shaved, and no plantain strip across it! Was this intentionally minimal? Average at best. On to the main entre then: teriyaki chicken with sticky rice and a crunchy salad. Folks, the platter is tiny. Think appetizer or dessert platter. Not visually impressive. The teriyaki chicken was bland - really bland, and overcome by the taste of baby corn cobs interspersed among the strips of chicken. Who would have expected corn? And the teriyaki sauce was not sticky or dark. The sticky rice wasn't sticky - in fact we all agreed it was more akin to fried rice. It had peas in it and carrots and was dark in colour. And again, bland. The salad was a few leaves of mixed greens with nothing crunchy in it at all. I think we were expecting maybe sliced walnuts or pine nuts, but, no. Just a very salty dressing. I'm not sure just how the individual portions that form this meal were approved. I just can't imagine a panel of people giving this the "thumbs up". It's disappointing. The restaurant was empty and will stay that way unless a radical do-over is performed on the menu, which, by the way, was too short with too few items. And please ensure that the meal actually resembles what's written in the menu. This didn't. On a positive note, we loved the wait staff. Very attentive and friendly. Sad they are being let down by the kitchen.

Dear Guests,

Firstly we would like to apologize for the delayed response and thank you for sharing your feedback with us regarding your experience at Solana. We are glad that the you enjoyed the service and setting and disappointed that our kitchen did not hit the ground running with your dining experience.
You are right about the newness of the place but it is in no way a reason to have a meal that is not up to the mark. We would like to share with you that now our menus are fully in place and i am sure that you would find enough variety and quality that you were looking for.
We really appreciate your feedback as it helps us improve and focus on things we would normally miss and hope that you definitely visit us in your next trip to Provo and se the progress.
