    What an amazing experience we had at Sola! We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing and I can’t recommend it enough. My sister who is quite picky when it comes to wine absolutely loved it! Service and food deserve two Michelin ⭐️!!! Thank you for a great night!

    Very nicely presented food with excellent flavours. Despite the emphasis being on fine dining, there’s a friendly, casual atmosphere in the restaurant. You can have a casual chat with the staff too, which is good. Surprised the restaurant has only 1 Michelin star, should certainly be 2! Would definitely recommend, come here asap if you want delicious hamachi fish as sashimi and a sublime melon dessert followed by an unctuous chocolate dessert. It’s not often you’ll get whipped Gorgonzola with ranch sauce, chicken skin and carrot cake, whilst the combination sounds weird, it’s excellent, a bunch of different flavours playing different roles to produce something that tastes great. The only thing to improve would be make the yuzu lemonade sweeter and the turbot dish less salty, as the latter became far too salty with an upgrade of Kaluga caviar. Still will return.

    Every dish was delicious on this interesting and innovative tasting menu. The wine flight was expensive, but generous and each course was paired with gloriously perfect mainly Californian wines. The sommelier is a genius! This is a pricey place to eat and there are plenty of chances to upgrade dishes/add courses to the ‘basic’ menu which made for an extravagant evening for us! However we loved all of it. But maybe the icing on the cake was the exuberant, enthusiastic and at times highly amusing (whilst always professional) attitude of the staff - all of them. Our interaction with them, together with the quality of the food, created a perfect evening for us.

    My wife and I enjoyed an evening at SOLA on 7th May 2022 to celebrate our first date married. We were well and truly spoiled by Joe, Tara and the team who made us feel so special. They created such a fun and unpretentious yet sophisticated fine-dining experience. The menu was 9 courses of pure bliss with outstanding American wine pairings. We were transported to California via Soho and blimey, we did not want it to end. I’d list the highlights but each course was a highlight and we’d love to dine here again and again. SOLA is amazing and we cannot wait to go again.

    Wonderful lunch at Sola. Everything of the highest standard. The dishes were creative, beautifully presented, delicious and served with style by Max and Sarah the sommelier recommended some lovely wines. I particularly valued the tasting style menu where one only had to make a few decisions. It was an experience I would definitely recommend.

    Open kitchen meaning smelly room AND coats stored literally in the kitchen therefore VERY smelly when leaving the restaurant - not what you expect from a Michelin star Food was hit and miss, very average salmon (tastes better at Prêt à Manger honestly), average foie gras … other courses good/very good

    SOLA SOHOResponded on 5 May 2022Dear Pierre We're sorry your experience at Sola did not live up to your expectations. We must it admit that it does not come as a total surprise as you and your guest looked thoroughly unhappy from the moment you entered the restaurant until you left. Our guess is that you did not like your table which, as we were fully booked and it was last available on the night you dined, was unfortunately not something we could do anything about. Perhaps you were expecting something grander in terms of the dining room? We checked on you throughout the night to see what was wrong but got no clear indication as to why you both looked so dissatisfied. As I'm sure you are aware, Michelin stars are given out for the quality of the food and not fripperies such as handbag stools or the luxuriousness of the cloakroom facilities. Yes, we have an open kitchen, our guests generally tend to like that connection with the chefs and the informality of the Sola experience. We're genuinely sorry that you did not. Our cloakroom is literally NOT in our kitchen but in a small corridor adjacent to the kitchen and we endeavour to make sure that our guests coats and bags are carefully looked after. We're sorry you did not feel that this was the case. We feel that when it comes to your comments on the food, you are perhaps letting you dissatisfaction with your table and the cloakroom facilities cloud your judgement. Speaking of which, we'd love to know which Prêt serves wild Pacific salmon three ways and includes caviar? Yours Sincerely, Joe Warwick, Restaurant Manager

    Food was beautiful, tasty and delicious. The service was good, but the feeling of rush came through with the first three courses. The smell of the jacket after being storaged next to kitchen was not appreciated. We would prefer music as more background and more slower tempo.

    Friday lunch with my wife. The restaurant is small and bright with comfortable seating and was busy on the Friday we visited. The food was excellent from start to finish, with the langoustines being a real stand out dish. The flavour combinations worked really well and the additional cheese course was delicious. Staff were very attentive and friendly and gave excellent advice for matching wines from an extensive American list. A memorable meal out and one we would love to repeat.

    The tasting menu offered us very delicate food, beautifully presented. One of the pleasures of Michelin star restaurants is being offered things you would not know how to create yourself, and Sola Soho certainly delivered on that front. I would have welcomed fewer little jugs of pour-over 'jus' but that's a personal preference; others will feel differently. We all felt that the meal could have ended with the chemical formula dessert (you'll have to go and try it yourself to learn more!) which was exquisite. Any further follow-up was not needed. The room is small, quiet, comfortable and restrained - exactly what is needed at the end of a long day. Well done, Sola Soho.

    The tasting menu was an experience - from the theatre of a pair of langoustines arriving on a rock to have Japanese whisky poured over them and set alight - to the perfect dashi broth served in a tiny jug and poured over cured salmon, the whole thing was a delight. Sola Soho think not just about the entire aesthetic experience for the dinner, so every thing is full of surprise and even awe. The whisky served in a glass blown into a piece of wood; the unique cheese board. You even love every bowl the food comes with. It's pure art as well as alchemy; and the wine choices and the two sommeliers were sublime. A great atmosphere - no whispered fine dining here. Aye. The real McCoy. But is very expensive. I'd calculated that the meal would come to nearly £200 less than what it did! Mind you with the fleet of wines coming fast, I can forgive the arithmetic taking a nose dive!

    Enjoyed our meal immensely. Small, intimate restaurant in a lively part of London. The tasting menu is the only food option, there's no a la carte, so recommend that you check the menu before booking. Loved every course, and we had the extra cheese tasting (additonal supplement), which was fantastic. This was a really unusual take on a cheese course. Service was friendly and warm, and the sommelier was very knowledgeable and presented the wine pairing really well. The langoustine was flambeed at the table, so that was a lovely piece of theatre. Yes, it's expensive at just over £300 per head inc alcohol and coffee, but I guess that's the way prices are going nowadays. It's 1 Michelin star is very well deserved.

    What an incredible 50th birthday meal for my husband. We were looked after from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The food was the perfect fusion between California and Asia. It was both delicious and beautiful! The ambiance was relaxed but upmarket at the same time. Soho definitely meets LA!
