We have had a few inquiries about Solaris Gift Cards so we thought we would address them here.
When Solaris first closed we all believed we would be open in a new location within weeks, perhaps a few months. We fully intended to honor the Gift Cards sold within 3 months of that unexpected closing. As you know, it has been well over a year before The Olives Bistro was able to open. Both Nick and George have since moved on to other endeavors and our former landlord of our Solaris location has effectively closed down Paulos Bass LLC, our company entity with which we issued and honored the gift cards.
However, as a courtesy, we did honor gift cards presented at the Bistro within the first 60 days of opening. Since we do not have a POS (Point of Sale) system to verify the balance on the cards, we chose to give those individuals a $20.00 discount – at least those presented courteously (i.e, notifying the server that they wanted to use a card from another business, before ordering, tipping in cash etc.). We have, unfortunately, had several persons who have been rude, demanding, and downright unpleasant in their expectations that we will honor these cards. Because of this, and the closure of Paulos Bass, LLC we will no longer be honoring or accepting any gift cards, discounts, or coupons from Solaris. As always, we appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
