Solé Restaurant and Wine Bar is situated in a 150 year old Seagram’s building, minutes west of the Waterloo Uptown Core. The interior soars two stories high to a timber frame ceiling, exposed brick and generous wood finishes, set the tone for an elegant yet casual experience.

The menu will transport your palate to the Mediterranean. Items ranging from thin crust pizza, pastas, vegetarian entrees, steaks, to lamb will satisfy any appetite. An extensive wine list, great selection of Scotch, local and imported beers on tap complement the experience. Service is professional yet friendly. Solé is waiting to take you away and deliver a complete dining experience.

My friend and I had a fantastic meal at Sole! We were both impressed with our dishes and service. We sat on the patio where we were kept warm with a heater. We both wish we had dined here sooner but know we will be back again soon!

Wonderful restaurant for a ladies night! The apple cider mimosas were divine, and we loved the honey drizzle on the pizza. Great ambience in the room that we were seated in.

Sole is the best in the Waterloo region. The food is outstanding, and even almost as great as the quality songlist that they have playing, many coming from The Great American Songbook. The ambiance and the personalities of the servers is quite wonderful.

Beautiful restaurant. Great food. We definitely would recommend this restaurant The appetizers (pizza and charcuterie board) really stood out. The person preparing them clearly pays attention to detail. We definitely would recommend this restaurant with the excellent food and wonderful staff.

We've been to Sole a few times - before the pandemic. This was our first experience going to any restaurant since lockdowns started in 2020 and we were apprehensive. They made us feel comfortable and safe. Of course, the quality of our food was as good as it's always been.

Service good and restaurant is great but my lobster/shrimp Benedict was not hot enough. Also, it was supposed to come with pastries but came with mini muffins and banana bread which, although good, I don’t consider those pastries. I would get eggs Benny again but would stick with regular eggs Benny as I didn’t think the seafood choice was worth the extra money.

This was our second time in Sole. Our waitress was great. Very friendly and willing to assist. As it was brunch- food was good. Portions were a little bit smaller and on the salty side, but good overall.

Sole has been my favourite restaurant for many years. However given that you are going along with the vaccine passport discriminatory measures, I will no longer frequent your restaurant, and this has nothing to do with my vaccination status.

In the past I would have heartily recommended Sole to a friend, but not now with the discriminatory practices, which are strictly illegal according to our Constitution and Charter of Rights.

The overall experience was good. Our server was dynamite- if it wasn’t for her I would have scored less. Half tomato and cheese salad for $25 was a rip off (tasted ok), the steak if I had to guess was boiled in hot water. No grill marks or seasoning and very boring. Scallop potatoes were excellent and the creme brûlée was very good. Overall, our server made our experience special.
