We had a party of four for the 6:30 seating. The service was very spotty, initially were told just to look at the special menu (about 4 items) and not encouraged to look at the rest of the menu. Once the order was taken we saw our waiter once again. Before we had fully finished coffee we were unceremoniously told that our time was up: it was time for the other seating, and we were asked to leave! This was a unique experience for eac of us in the party. None of us will visit this restaurant again!

Had a memorable meal, celebrating our 49th anniversary. Food was terrific, handsome presentation. Service was excellent, going along with our request for a leisurely dinner. One of the top 3 meals at a BYOB we've had in Philadelphia.

My husband, two very good friends, and myself were there for dinner last week. The service was very poor. The waiter opened our wine bottles, never poured our wine, never came back to refill our wine glasses and never refilled our water glasses. When our waiter presented us with the check, leaving it on the table, he was back in less than 30 seconds to pick it up. We hadn't had a chance to look at it. We felt very rushed, there was no one waiting to be seated, so I am not sure why the waiter returned in such a hurry to pick up our payment. One of the waiter's also made a comment about how fast we consumed the little tid bit we received "Compliments of The Chef".

We recently had dinner at Sola and had a wonderful meal. This is by far one of the best restaurants on the mainline. The menu is always changing and very creative. They also have beautiful stemware for your wine. We had the tuna appetizer which had both a tuna tartare and seared tuna. We also had the crab appetizer with the softshell crab. Both were delicious. For entrees we had the braised short rib and the sea scallops. The short ribs were by far one of the best short ribs I have had anywhere, very tender and moist and came with a tomato marmalade. The sea scallops were cooked to perfection, moist in the center and came with an amazing lobster and mushroom risotto. I highly recommend Sola to anyone looking for an excellent dining experience. Service was also very attentive throughout our meal.

This over the top is not only the best food available on the Main Line (It’s BYOB) but the chef/owner Dave is one of the most gracious people you’ll ever want to meet. The food each visit surpasses the previous. Be sure to make a reservation as Sola is no longer a secret. Highly recommend it for choices and price. Try it and you’ll return again and again.

My husband and I and another couple went to Sola for Valentine's dinner. It was highly recommended to us, and we were so looking forward to it. I went online to review the menu, and was very excited to see sweetbreads. I love them, but my husband doesn't, so the only time I have them is when we are at a restaurant that serves them. The platter came. On it were four very small- about the circumference of a nickle - pieces of veal, and two heavily breaded and deep fried sweetbread pieces - about 2" long each. Actually I didn't even recognize thm as sweetbreads. Between the breading and the frying, there was so little taste of sweetbread that even my husband would have eaten them! I should have sent it back, but the restaurant was busy considering the holiday. It was a very expensive disappointment, and we will not be going back.

The food here is good, but overpriced. My biggest concern and why I will never return is because the staff is unfriendly and condescending toward its patrons. While the physical atmosphere is pleasing, the human factor cannot be ignored.
