Had not been there in a while. Was just as good as we remembered.
Sole is our "go-to" restaurant in the Region! Excellent service, food & atmosphere!
Really great service and food. Very accommodating and welcoming, with a great atmosphere.
Nothing could have been better, great place... always consistent
One of our favourite places to eat in Waterloo!!
The Raspberry White Chocolate Charlotte was superb - a must try!
The Crab Cakes as a starter - the description sounded more delicious than the actual but still quite good.
The Provencal seemed a healthy and light option but didn't leave a mark on the taste buds - had replaced the shrimp with scallops which were well done.
Service and ambience were great!
Sole does not disappoint! My family took me to Sole for my birthday dinner! The tasty meal and dessert was enjoyed! Will be back!
Fantastic restaurant! Food was savoury. Left feeling full not stuffed. Server was great charming, perfessional, and very knowledgable of the ingredients.
My only recommendation would be I'd like to see vegan and vegetarian options on the menu.
Again a simply amazing dining experience at Sole!! We were greeted at the door warmly and our waiter extremely attentive to ensure we had the best in service! The scallops appetizer soooo delicious and my sweet potato lasagna excellent as always☺️We will be back🌹
Sole never fails. The food is great and so is the service and ambience.
Great place for great conversations, meeting and enjoying friends.
It was for a birthday and it was the birthday girl’s choice for the restaurant. All of our meals were excellent and our waitress was prompt, efficient and friendly. A great evening! Thanks
Excellent meal choices, with lots of seafood
The martini Menu was a treat, the French was delicious.
I had the Braised short ribs which were melt in your mouth fabulous.
Can't wait for the next opportunity to go again !
Menu is wonderful but I wished you'd have more vegetarian options. But not a complaint, just a suggestion.
I found the menu a bit pricey - $19 for an appetizer that consisted of five seared scallops and one half strip of bacon - but that's to be expected at this class of venue. I ordered the surf and turf. The lobster tail was good but and the steak was done to my liking but it was not a very good cut of meat - thinner than I expected and somewhat sinewy. The waiter, while polite, was not overly friendly and seemed somewhat anxious for my wife and I to finish our dinner and leave. When we declined to look at the dessert menu, he already had our cheque with him, and he didn't ask whether we might like coffee or tea. Overall, and underwhelming experience. That said, this was not our first visit and our previous experiences were better. Just an off evening, I guess.
I’ve been to Sole a few times and was disappointed with the main course this time around. The rib steak was very thin and the chef/cook did not bother cutting off a huge chunk of fat on the one side before serving. The lobster tail was also very salty.
I would recommend Sole for Sunday dinner. Nothing else. Valentine's Day dinner was hugely over priced.
Good service and food. Our server, Monica, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Pleasant ambiance.
Great food and excellent service. Will definitely be back.
Entries could have been more exciting. Vegetables were bland.
I would rank Sole as one of my favorite restaurants. I visit often and bring guests. The hostess servers are always superb!
One of my favourite restaurants with a plethora of variety. Succulent beef ribs and lovely lumpy mashed. Bit light on the veg on both of our plates and for some reason the schnitzel was a bit dry. It has been a while since I was here due to circumstances but the interior has not changed. The desserts were scrumptious and the brûlée was a perfect thickness and cool with sugar crust.
Overall the meal was worth its money and the service was prompt and friendly
I am never disappointed when I come to Sole. The food is prepared and presented in the best possible way. If I want to be assured of quality I come to Sole. We were celebrating a birthday and my birthday friend was presented with a complimentary Creme Brule for dessert. She was delighted.
Lovely dinner , Tyler looked after us in a friendly professional manner . Thank you for a lovely evening .
I took a friend from out of town who had never been to Sole. She has a gluten allergy and was absolutely blown away by the many options for her. We were both impressed that our server knew the exact options for gluten free and did not have to go and ask anyone which is usually our experience at other restaurants and leaves us a little unsure of what she is ordering is actually going to be gluten free, but not at Sole! Staff was very knowledgeable, accommodating and friendly. Food was top notch as usual and she (as well as myself) were highly impressed! We will be back! Great job everyone.
We eat at Sole regularly, several times a year, and keep going back because the food is very good and so is the value. Our last outing there was not so great, although the food and service was still very good (the Icelandic cod special was spectacular!). However, we were seated at a TERRIBLE table that shouldn't even exist - they squeezed in a table for 4 right at the main entrance to the dining area directly beside the reception area. There is only a 6 foot wide entrance to the dining area and our table took up 4 feet of that space. So not only were sitting right next to everyone who arrived and those who were getting their coats on to leave, the space to walk behind us to get in and out was tight so we were constantly having guests squeeze up behind our chairs to get in and out of the restaurant. Just a terrible place for a table and I hope they never use that again. Certainly we know now to make sure we stipulate "not the table right at the dining room entrance" if we decide to go back to Sole. I just can't understand who thought that was a reasonable place to seat someone. It was also very noisy but that was due to 2 large tables and is not typical at Sole. Boy, I hope their table arranging is not the new normal or we won't be eating there as much as we would like!
The breaded chicken special was very bland. It also wasn’t clear to me that the chicken was breaded. Not up to their usual standards. Suggest they tell wait staff not to use “we” when addressing customers: really annoying.
Took the family to Sole for my wife’s birthday last Sunday. Downscale décor, but good food. Good portions and everyone cleaned their plates and had tasty deserts which is not normal for our crew.
Server spilled a martini and half empties a coup of other glasses. She replaced the spilled martini in a flash and did not charge us for a drink to account for the half empty cocktails.
We will be going back to Sole.
Great food ( lunch special for $25, a real deal!), lovely service, beautiful surroundings. I keep coming back...
A great restaurant, food is always delicious, right temperature and well presented! Our server was Stephanie and she was delightful!
Excellent food especially for me ordering gluten-free
The service was great and we stayed longer enjoying our coffees.
Lovely atmosphere. Loved the lobster Benedict. The bread was also very fresh and tasty and clearly just made. Delish!
The food was not impressive from the presentation to the taste..the pizza especially was not very good
So much enjoyed the soup and sandwich special- apple/chestnut soup and brined peameal bacon, cheddar and delicious remoulade on a chive/potato bun for the sandwich. Very memorable.
The food was terrific and it’s great the music plays softly in the background so our conversation was audible. The service was ok. The server forgot our additional bottle of sparkling water and asked us twice if we wanted more.
Beautiful spot with an incredibly varied menu, so much to choose from with many daily specials. One was arctic char with arugula mousse and asparagus. Presentation flawless flavours incredible. Our server was knowledgable and attentive without hovering. Definitely my new go to fave
We had a wonderful lunch with my family at Sole. Everyone enjoyed their food. The staff were all very courteous and helpful.
Highly recommend!!! Food and service absolutely amazing.
Only downside was that tables are too close together, with little room to pass in between.
First time experience was stunning. Perfect hostess, delightful, happy server, nice vibe, not rushed nor were the staff rushing, just moving easily among the tables. Highly recommend this restaurant.
And of course, that extra candle on dessert was the pièce de résistance, or just the icing on the cake.
