This was the first time we had eaten in a restaurant since the beginning of the pandemic. It was a lovely way to celebrate an important anniversary. Attention to safety protocols put us at ease; the food and wine was amazing; the service was attentive, warm and personable; and a complimentary anniversary dessert topped off the evening beautifully. We understand, but were saddened by the news this morning that in-person dining would be shut down once again. We send out our thoughts and best wishes to the owners and staff. Thank you for all you do!

Sole was excellent as always. My late wife and I had our wedding reception at Sole 18 years ago and we returned many times. Last night was not a disappointment.

What a beautiful spot to celebrate a celebratory birthday. The entire experience was fabulous, starting with the warm welcome from the hostess at the door. The server was well trained and attentive. Now for the food experience. The confit of duck was crispy and done to perfection. The Artic Char was cooked perfectly. I would recommend sauce on the side to keep the duck skin crisp. We finished off with the small creme brulee, with the added touch of Happy Birthday decorating the plate, which was a perfect ending to a delicious meal. Absolutely my favorite restaurant in Waterloo, Ontario.

…and your food is top notch. We appreciated he fact that the noise levels were acceptable. We didn’t have to shout to each across the table.

The building lends so much to the overall ambiance and I'm always struck by the history/interior. Our server was utterly delightful and the food from starters to dessert was delicious. (The wine was pretty tasty as well.) Full marks to the kitchen staff for accommodating some dietary requests. It's a pain to do in my own home so it's much appreciated that Sole's busy kitchen is able to offer suggestions/alternatives.
