Mediterranean | Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz / Capitola / Aptos

We loved the chicken wrap sandwhich, large mezza platter and gyro plate. We will definitely come back again. The babaganoush seemed to have an artificial smoke flavor rather then the natural smoke flavor you attain from grilling the eggplant. It was too heavy in smoke flavor for our liking and more then we are accustomed to at other restaurants or how we make it at home. Overall great experience. More

We are locals that tried Solarie for dinner. We usually eat in SF, so our expectations are high! We had tried it once before for drinks, which were unique and delicious. Love the guitar player, soft, not loud-so you can hear yourself talk. I’m surprised there’s not a younger crowd after 9. Its such a cool ambience, and love the option of eating outside around the pool or outdoor fireplace. We will return! More

I felt like for the price of the food it could be much better. Way Way over priced. Options were terrible. Wait staff great. Joy was an awesome server. $32.00 for Buffett and I can't eat $10.00 worth. I don't eat salad or any veggies, no soups absolutely nothing with ONIONS! doesn't leave much choice and I still had to pay $32.00. I felt totally ripped off. Robin More
