Father’s Day lunch. Lots of food. Room a bit noisy as 3-4 large groups (and we were one of them). Server pleasant and helpful.

We would definitely recommend Sole. Service was prompt and professional and not rushed at all. We went to celebrate our daughters graduation and as a special treat when our dessert arrived our server had decorated it to acknowledge her accomplishment. Unexpected but very much appreciated. Food was outstanding. Definitely will return - a very special meal.

Nice ambiance, good service and nice selection of wines by the glass. Our table enjoyed the calamari and curried crab cakes to start, although we all thought the calamari was a bit salty. The salmon and short ribs were a hit, my husband enjoyed the linguine and clams, but again thought it was a bit salty. Overall we had a very meal and would return.

Service was brusque, almost mechanical, lacking personability
water almost smashed onto the table
not even finished our wine and as not selecting dessert, they brought the machine to pay,
felt rushed out
will never take that seat again, looking into the kitchen
too cramped, in this particular table, all the comings and goings, eliminate the table.

I love Sole, and go there often. Sadly my last visit was not up to par. The duck confit was dry and had very little meat. There was a very noisy, large party beside us, which kind of wrecked date night. But I will keep going back, because most of the time it is a wonderful experience.

my wife and I went to Sole to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary as we have done on one previous occasion.
On our last visit we had a good meal but only ok service. We chalked it up to the server having an off night.
This time we hoped things would be different but we were underwhelmed again. We found the meal very mechanical and transactional. We were never asked is we were celebrating anything or engaged in any meaningful conversation with our server. They were polite but only there for a job. Perhaps pretentious.
Our meal was ok and unique but it did not make up for the lack of ambiance.
For our money we we have always gotten consistent, friendly service at the upscale casual chains who find ways to make our celebrations memorable.

We will think twice before going here again.

Our dinner was very expensive. And the food quality was just okay. The lamb shank had maybe 8 bites of fatty meat and resembled a chicken leg. It also tasted kind of old like it had been cooked days before. The waitress must of had 8 or more tables. She did a good job managing it all but was not able to give the kind of attention to us that one would expect of a fine dining establishment. The building is cool - especially the ceiling but the art Devore is dated. We won’t go back sadly.

Always wanted to try this place since it opened, but living in Alberta for the last 35 Year’s makes it difficult, as I only visit Waterloo once a year. Truly worth the wait, just wish we could try it more often
I had short ribs, my wife had salmon. Both beautifully presented, perfectly paired with complementary sides and, of course tasted delicious. A half litre of the house Malbec made it a perfect evening, not to mention the superb service by our waitress
