Though I'm really glad to have a restaurant in BedStuy, this place feels like a waste of space. On several occasions when dining in, it took 10 minutes for someone to bring water, another 10 for them to come back and take my order and at least 45 for the prepared food to actually arrive. I wasn't overly hungry when I came in, but I was ravenous by the time the food came. Every time I attempt to eat there, a couple menu items are not available (once, I asked for a turkey burger 3 days straight only to find out they wouldn't be in 'til the following week). The desserts are average-tasting and overpriced. This place is big on style and pretention, but doesn't have the quality service or food to back it up. BedStuy residents still pack it b/c where else are they going to go? They also tried to slip an entertainment charge on my bill once when I was having an early dinner on a Sunday poetry night. I came for food, not poetry, so it was a little shady to try and charge me for both when I arrived long before the entertainment began. If you're used to any non-fast food dining, Solomon's Porch will disappoint.
Pros: good light, nice decor
Cons: slow service, inconsistent menu, inconvenient hours, overpriced, blah food
