Lovely setting....especially the decorative centre piece.
Spacious and airy.
The food was well presented and tasty.
The service perfectly attentive.
It was interesting watching the cars and taxis manoeuvring in a tight space!

Only (big) downside...the smokers from the theatre swarmed out during the intermission and lit up very close by, which rather spoilt the ambience!
Perhaps an agreed space further away from diners could be negotiated!?
All in all a very pleasant way to continue to celebrate our Golden Wedding.

Myself and my friend were celebrating our 50th birthdays and wanted to go somewhere special and Solas didn’t disappoint. The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough to make our visit enjoyable and memorable.

Solas Bar at the Savoy was a wonderful choice for pre-dinner drinks - the atmosphere and service were second to none and it was really inspiring to be back enjoying ourselves in a place where customers and staff alike were happy to be sharing a special experience.

Food was excellent.
Most people around us seemed to be there for pre theatre drinks and nibbles but we went the full hog with starter, fish platter (oysters etc) including lobster, cocktails and a bottle of wine. The salted caramel ice cream desert was simple but to die for.
For two of us this was £300, but then, the food, the service and the ambience were superb. We were about 10m from the theatre door and remember, this is the Savoy.
Overall it was really superb and I wish I could afford to do this more often.

A little underwhelmed. Asked when booking to tick occasion which was a Birthday and so expected at least a greeting but none. On sitting we were served water and asked about drinks, but we hadn’t decided so asked for a little time. I thought 25mins was a little too long. The waiters were perfectly pleasant but when one said he would bring more snacks they didn’t arrive. We had made the effort to dress in smart casual ( my son had trousers to change into after a hot day in London) after checking the dress code for Solas but were surprised to see people in t shirts shorts and trainers! We still enjoyed ourselves but as I say a little underwhelmed.

Great food, beautiful setting and good service. We had the seafood platter that was surprisingly large and actually pretty good value when you consider the quality and quantity. I would probably pay half that for the ingredients from my fish monger.

Discovered this by accidents when we tried to visit the American Bar. Originally we thought we had missed the opportunity as Covid measures where easing but thankfully managed to get booked in.

Overall great unique experience. It’s a shame they won’t be able to keep this going forward. Service was impeccable, quality throughout as you would expect. Food was lovely. The only thing was this is only for a light bite. That said it’s the first time I have enjoyed eating in a drive way and would look forward to doing the same if this comes back.

Clever use of the outside space at the front of the Savoy . This is a scaled down menu from Kaspers . The food was very good but alcohol is seriously overpriced £18 for a small glass of wine . Bring back Kaspers please!

Fantastic oysters, good value compared to Wrights. Super table and super service but very restricted menu.Clam chowder was very thin and unappetising and the only hot dish

Lovely atmosphere and seafood platter was amazing. Unfortunately a bit disappointed in some of the other food. We felt the lobster roll was way over priced for what you got and the clam chowder badly mis-represented (wrong type of clam chowder - it was Manhattan style, not New England style and very disappointing). Also found the bread a bit too hard and did not eat half of it.

Oysters and whiskey combination was a revelation, so very glad we tried that. So while we enjoyed ourselves, it was not the stellar meal we had hoped for (and paid for).

Lobster roll extremely dry no flavours. Lazy staff - need to ask for everything. They bring plates with no cutlery, water with no glasses…etc

Will never go back
