"The food is exceptional: the primary reason to choose Soluna. We cannot fault the wait person who claimed it was her first night alone.
The staff overall is not suitable for the customer experience: from the maitre'd; to the back of house manager or owner to the general manager: no one took the time to as how our service food and overall experience was.
Everyone was disconnected from our experience."

"Crab spaghetti tasted like it was sitting in the kitchen waiting for someone to order it. Way overpriced for what you get. The service was terrible. Only one person was working. Do not come here!!!"

"My halibut was a little overcooked, though it was on a bed of polenta that was absolutely delicious. The chopped tomatoes on top of the halibut made for a very nice flavor combination. My partner's seared ahi was excellent. The warm caesar salad was disappointing - nothing interesting about it. The chocolate mousse dessert was very tasty, sized for one person more than for sharing. Service was relaxed. Overall, a mixed experience. The location is convenient for dining before a show at the Symphony/Opera/Jazz Center/Herbst, etc."

"Special plates are creative and flavors interesting. Greens fresh, a quality criteria for me. I like the back of the house, cozy and dark wood befitting the court. Sometimes make good menu chouces but run out. Seem to carry burgers and gourmet together. Relaxed style very comfortable with seating spaced not packed. Good choice."

"Enjoyed several small plates which was just enough food prior to going to the theater. Spinach salad was nothing special but still very good. Soup of the day was butternut squash and could have been thicker for my taste. Next time I would try the burger which seemed to be the hit!"

"Every bite we ordered was fantastic! The burger was out of this world. I was a little iffy after reading some mixed reviews but I could not have been happier with our experience. Everything was well balanced, flavorful, and cooked just right. Service was fast and friendly, environment was cozy and neighborly feeling. Will definitely be back next time we go to the theater."

"The waitress was solid and her service was genuine and helpful.
The food though missed the mark on nearly every dish our group had. Out of six plates only two were well prepared and served as advertised.
When grill marks are overdone they become charred food. That is often bitter and unpleasant. Sadly, that happened on two of the items we were served.
Two others dishes were supposed to have crab as a major component. The crab was short on one and seemed entirely missing on the other.
The menu ideas and flavors had a lot of potential and it is sad that potential was not realized."

"I was looking for a place for our group to dine before a show and found this great place searching and reviewing online. Tuns out, this little gem met all the criteria for great food, exceptional service by the waitress and the ambiance was just right for a restaurant near the theaters. Highly recommend Soluna Cafe as a place to dine!"

"The fish and chips was a pleasant surprise as a special for St. Patrick's day. This is a great pre-theater venue. As always, they were attentive to our curtain time at the Golden Gate Theater."

"We had dinner here before a performance at the Orpheum and the location and food was very good. We all enjoyed our dinners. Among the four of us we ordered the fried chicken, steamed clams, ahi and the filet and all the meals were very good
. It was only a five minute walk to the theater which worked out perfectly for us. I would recommend this restaurant especially to theater goers.

"Five of us had a light supper before theater at the Strand. It is a short walk and even in the rain was not an issue. The space is long and narrow, wood paneling and has its charm. The bar is the front area and the restaurant seating is in the rear; there is a large picture window overlooking a cottage garden at the end wall. Yes a real one--not a painting. Reserve one of those tables near the window. The bar choices are not all available in the restaurant which is a pity. There were some nice ideas on it and the happy hour extends until 7. There really isn't seating in the bar for 5 so we sat in the restaurant. There are plenty of modest choices for a light meal including a burger that is a juicy chicken breast. The salade nicoise was lovely and generous enough for an entree. Larger entree choices are available. Bread is only brought on request so get that first and then get some more. Some good beers on draft and wines by the glass. These folks could capitalize on their location and promote a pre-theater fixed price or special perks if you show your tickets. There is little to choose from in this area, the restaurant wasn't full and they could be making hay..."

"I hope the long wait to get our dinner was due to a problem with the restaurant's computer system. We ordered within 10 minutes, but it took another 15 to get water and our drinks. Our appetizers arrived about 5 minutes after that, but our entree did not arrive until 50 minutes after ordered. When it did come, the fried chicken was moist and delicious, as were all of the side dishes. The split plate is totally worth it because they give you a second set of the side dishes. I plan to try again, and hope everything else goes well. The waiters were apologetic, but it seems they could have given everyone water and bread automatically given the delays."

"Service was wonderful. Quiet place. Comfortable booth. Fried chicken was too well done for my friend, dry, hard to eat. My burger was superb! Waitperson took very good care of our demands...back and forth for hot water many times! She was friendly and helpful. Give her a raise."

"We have eaten here before. It's convenient for dinner if you want to attend a show at the Strand Theater. I had the Salad Nicoise for my main course. The tuna and all the other ingredients were fresh and very tasty. My husband had the hamburger. He told me that the hamburger and the fries were very greasy and made him feel like he had a stomach ache. The service was friendly. The restaurant was not too crowded and was therefore not too noisy."
