Solo is a prime example of a restaurant that caters to people with dietary restrictions and uses these restrictions to take advantage of their patrons. I don't even know where to begin in describing our recent dismal culinary experience at this restaurant. I could tell you about how our waiter brought two bowls of soup to our table and told us that one was a soup and the other one raw kampachi. I could tell you that we had to send back our appetizers because they were cold and one or our three meat entrees because it was undercooked, or how we had to ask for everything from water to bread to ""where is our food?"" after an entree disappeared for 25 minutes after sending it back. While the three meat entrees we ordered were decent enough, they did not warrant the $45-$61 price tag. There are several other kosher establishments in the city that serve better quality fare at far less a price tag with just as much ambiance, better service and far better consideration for their clientele. Both the management and the wait staff were nonchalant - they either wrongly assumed that the members of our party eat only in Kosher establishments and don't know any better, or, since our party was large enough to warrant the required 20% gratuity, they didn't care whether we were pleased. A restaurant should pride itself on its food and its customer service. It appears that Solo sees their kosher clientele as gourmet ignoramuses with deep wallets and low dining and culinary standards upon which they can take prey.\r
And just in case you were thinking of visiting the restaurant to enjoy Top Chef Hung' cooking - don't bother. Even though we called to confirm that he would be cooking in the restaurant twice the day of our reservation, we arrived to find out he was ""not in the kitchen"" and that ""Chefs don't cook. They walk around the restaurant or look at the food before it goes out to the customers."" This is straight from the management.
