    Booked this restaurant because it was open on a Sunday. So glad I did. We had the 6 course tasting menu and it was excellent. Service was impeccable. Will definitely go back.

    After visiting Bordeaux earlier in the year and spending an evening in the 2 starred Michelin Hotel near the Opera House we were very disappointed by the food particularly towards my wife’s allergy towards Gluten. We returned to Bordeaux later this year to find this gem of a restaurant who easily produce food and service beyond the restaurant mentioned earlier, they catered simply for my wife and adapted dishes to suit, never once making her think that she was the odd one out. If you’re thinking of coming to Bordeaux make this your choice of restaurant over and above the more highly rated and you won’t be disappointed. Also don’t let the menu choice put you off as this is all part of the excitement of being served food you will enjoy but not necessarily have chosen yourself.

    Le Solena was a disappointment in a number of ways including the quality of the foods courses, inconsistency of flavors, and questionable restaurant decor. For dinner I chose the 4 course menu which included a fish and meat course. The fish course was decent but the fish was slightly overcooked and tasteless; relying on the mild sauce to provide flavor. The meat course was a complete miss; the meat was tasteless and overcooked with the sauce also being effectively tasteless. The "first dessert" by contrast was very tart and to much of a contrast given the preceding fish and meat courses were tasteless. The second dessert was well prepared and more appropriate from a flavor profile. Overall La Solena has a lot of improvements it needs to make to its menu and food preparation. From a flavor perspective the menu is one of extremes; bland main courses followed by a extremely tart, too powerful, first dessert. This is indicative of a chef who does not have enough culinary experience to construct and properly execute menus. Currently there are much better restaurants in Bordeaux offering much better menus.

    Wonderful food. Imaginative presentations. Time between courses was a bit longer than usual for this restaurant.

    Superbly orchestrated meal following either a four or six course tasting menu. The optional wine pairings were well worth it. Guests have no idea what they will be served until it arrives. Our party did not want to compromise our palates with an aperitif, which left us without wine throughout the amuse bouches service, a minor complaint. All of the principal courses were beautifully prepared and presented. A few of the amuse bouches and dessert bouches fell a bit below the overall standard. Service, with only two for the entire room, was up to the task.

    In the past year we have eaten at some of the best restaurants in Sonoma. San Francisco Philadelphia New Orleans. London. This one was the best of all of them.
