I enjoy Solo. 3/10/2008

I go to Solo at least once every two weeks. The drink selection is very nice, I really enjoy the staff, and the food is good. The food portions may be a little lean but it seems that Solo not meant to be a place you go for dinner, but for drinks and semi-exotic appetizers. And they are good. I give Solo big thumbs up and that's why its one of my most frequent stops. Pros: Friendly and artistic environment. Cons: Would like more live musical variety. more

Great bartenders, good food 2/7/2008

Solo is a great neighborhood bar! It's a great place to go before or after a show, on the way to a movie or just to hang out.The live music and d.j. nights are always a blast and the staff are hilarious and inviting.\r \r I recommend checking out their food menu too. They have some tasty meat and cheese plates (amongst a ton of other menu items) and delicious hummus! \r \r Check out Solo if you get the chance, it's definitely one of my favorites!! more

Terrible customer service 1/20/2008

Solo has a very rude staff, weak drinks and bad food. Very dirty too - the bartender was outside smoking more than working the entire evening. did not wash his hands before serving. Pros: Goood Sound system Cons: Dirty, rude waiters with bad, overpriced food and drinks. more

Avoid 1/20/2008

terrible service. mean waiters. awful, food. the staff made everyone listen to Steely Dan-what a terrible atmosphere. it is a shame because it is a great space but the employees and cooks ruin every aspect of it. Pros: It looks nice inside Cons: Terrible, overpriced food, rude staff, awful music more

slow service, bad food 11/19/2007

I've never written a review before, but felt that my most recent experience at Solo warranted it. The first time I went there was right after they opened -- I thought the service was friendly, but a bit slow and the food was so-so. I went back last week to see if it had improved and was sorely disappointed. The place was full, but not packed and the kitchen was super slow -- it took me almost 40 minutes to get a small appetizer. I ordered the risotto-balls which were disgusting -- the risotto was crunchy in the middle, had a gloppy/gluey consistency and absolutely bland, there was more flavor in the vegetable oil it had been fried in -- really gross.\r \r The servers are friendly, but that's about the only plus this place has. Pros: friendly service Cons: slow service, bad food more

swanky queen anne fun 10/16/2007

I think the ambiance of Solo is charming. They always have an eclectic movie playing with excellent music. I haven't been disappointed by their drinks or tapas. It gets rather busy and the service slows down during that time but it doesn't bother me. Everyone is friendly and I love sitting on the couch with friends. Their menu is delectable and I plan on going in to try the things I have yet to sample. I even adore the gummy candy they put in my drinks! more

Awesome 10/3/2007

Best Bar in Seattle. Great Dj's. Cool artwork. The hottest bartenders in town. All you need. And the drinks are strong! more

Cheers to going Solo 10/3/2007

Solo has a very ""Cheers"" atmosphere, combined with a very cool, trendy low-lit lounge vibe. It is a great place to take a date after an event, or to just go ""solo,"" which I prefer. The art on the walls features local artists and each month they switch it up! You never know what will be featured, but you know it will be cool and different. The bar tenders are friendly and have a very ""Seattle hip vibe about then."" This bar really encompasses what a Seattle bar should be. I have gone in after work at 5pm for their great happy hour, and gone in on the weekends when they feature great local bands! I love that everybody knows my name and makes me feel at home no matter what day, night, or crowd is there! Pros: Great cool atmosphere, nice people, great art on walls, makes you feel right at home, very friendly bartenders! Cons: No outside seating, small venue, one bathroom more

Great bar with even better employees! 10/3/2007

I love Solo and everyone who works there! Michael and Val are awesome... they always are friendly and considerate. Drinks are always quality and the atmosphere is fun. I've had MANY fun nights at Solo from the grand opening to a friend's going away party and have never had anything to complain about (except for maybe only having one bathroom... but what an awesome bathroom it is!). Go there for their awesome pita plates and interesting drink selections. Pros: Great employees, great drinks, great appetizers Cons: Only one bathroom but well worth the wait! more

LOVE IT! 10/3/2007

I love this place! 10/3/2007

You cannot find a better place for food and drinks. A top notch menu and bartenders that know how to make the best drinks in town. Pros: Atmosphere and sevice more

Attitude, Awful Customer Service, Expensive 8/31/2007

I've been to this bar multiple times since I live in lower Queen Anne. The first couple times I was there, the customer service and drinks were just sub-par, but the last experience I had there will keep me away forever. My friend had a DJ set there a couple weeks ago, which required me to go--everything went well until it was time to pay my bill. Simply, I had two drinks and they charged me for three. When I realized this and went to the bar to clear up the misunderstanding, I first waited for 10 minutes while the owner chatted with the regulars and ignored me (he saw me waiting). When I calmly told him the situation, the OWNER of the bar proceeded to argue with me and not back down (mind you, he wasn't even my bartender, and I was SOBER). He didn't even bother to clear up the situation with the bartender who actually served me. This is the worst experience I have ever had at a bar and I will never go back. Also, the bar is pretty uptight, and full of poser hipsters. Go to Capitol Hill if you want a real hipster artsy bar with an awesome staff. Pros: Location. Cons: Customer Service, Prices, Crowd more

Great date spot 5/19/2006

Fantastic art gallery meets European cafe. No attitude, great art and good wine. What more could you ask for? Pros: Ambience, Decor, Events more

Very Unique 4/25/2006

Its like going to gallery opening anynight of the week. A unique setting with small bar height tables in the middle of a quaint art gallery. Very cool without all the Art snob attitude. Small homemade food plates. Try the Peroshki and the Turkish coffee is a sweet treat. Happy hour 5-7 even better!! more
