Disappointed – I have given Solaris several chances because the location and atmosphere are great, but I have always been disappointed with the food and service.
soooo slow – Yes it was a Friday night. But it wasn't *that* busy. When I see that a couple seated before us has finished their meal and is leaving before we are served our entrees... well, that's pretty slow. Our waitress made it worse by saying "your food is coming up soon... it's like the next order up," and then we waited another 15 minutes. The only thing that made it worth it was the awesome calamari. Service was horrible! She said she comped us 2 beers, but only took 1 off the bill.
Nice bar – I have yet to try the food at Solaris, but the bar is nice. The bar tenders are friendly and the drinks are good for the price. I love margaritas and I'm pretty picky, but this place makes a great one. Nice ambiance. The bar can get a little noisy, due to its size and the way the room is laid out. A good place overall.
not enough surf in the surf & turf – The Valentine's Day menu was 50$ per person for the 3 course meal. I thought that was a little pricy compared to the regular menu. The service & atmosphere was good, but the Surf & Turf was a little cheap on the lobster.
Best under the sun – By far the best place to eat in Philly is the Solaris Grille! Where else can you hear street performers sing and listen to smooth jazz 106.1 on the radio all while enjoying the fresh air and great food of Solaris Grille. The ambiance can' t be beat!
