The food at Solana was fantastic! We started out with crispy shrimp roll and spicy tuna roll, both of which were spot on and fresh. Our server Watson, who was awesome, recommended the BBQ ribs and grouper. My husband had the grouper and said it was decent, but my friend and I had the ribs and they were probably the best thing we ate on our vacation. The sauce is delicious, with just the right amount and the meat falls off the bone. Of course, we let my husband have the few ribs we couldn't finish and he loved them too.

We came for sunset and the views at Solana were spectacular, as with most restaurants on Grace Bay.

Service was good, no major complaints. Watson was hilarious and the staff went out of their way to get us the bottle of wine that we ordered that they were out of originally.

Great location on Grace Bay which allows you to dine on the deck just a few steps from the beach. The location would get 4-stars but it only gets 3-stars for the food. Service was good and no complaints about staff. However, as far as quality of food, it is average, and did not stand out as special.

My husband and I had a really nice experience having dinner at at Solana, a fairly new restaurant that is finding it's way in a really competitive world on Provo. First of all the location is lovely just about on Grace Bay Beach in a raised setting giving the whole outdoor setting a very expansive view of a number one (many times over) beach in the world. Some table staff was a little inexperienced, what with forgetting the sushi menu from the start. Once that was sorted out by Nishanda who took over our table we had service that we could not find fault with. I had a sushi platter and a vegetable noodle bowl. This was enough food for my dinner. (big appetites will find this too small for them) My husband had a shrimp fried rice bowl and a tuna plate. His was also very good. All of the fish was very fresh and nicely presented on what is called a bridge. We did not have dessert.
This is one restaurant that should be given a second chance by the folks who have given it a poor review, after all every new business has growing pains.
We will definitely be returning to sample more of the appetizing looking menu items.

Love the location of Solana. We did not have a bad meal, but it was only about average. We were looking for the teppanyaki experience that we are accustomed to at home and this was far from it. This was our 4th time in TCI, so it's not that we are unfamiliar. The wait staff were indifferent and seemed not to know too much about the menu. I think they work between two locations because several of the staff had on shirts with a different restaurant name. Portions were very small and even though the BBQ sauce was recommended, it was bland and tasted out of the bottle.

Dear Guests,

Thank you for sharing your recent experience at Solana with us and though we are glad that you loved the setting the meal was not up to your expectations.

We would have loved if you had shared the same with our teppan chefs and i am sure they would have prepared the meal again to suit your taste palate and made it a better experience.

Thank you again for your feedback and we certainly hope to improve our service and get the right flavors in food by your next trip to Provo.

First off we did the teppanyaki and the good was decent

However the service was beyond bad, it took 45 minutes to just get the check. No napkins, no water--had to get up and find server every time

Give this a pass....
