My first time going to this restaurant, after having researched it online. The environment, food, and service all lived up to my expectations. Very satisfied and would go back again.
Everything was fine. My order (lunch menu) of the jagerschnitzel was dry, but everyone else enjoyed their selections.
Had a lovely dinner even with a very loud group of 20 sitting right beside us. I had the dinner special and it was a great value (salad, lamb chops and dessert for $35). We will definately come back to Sole.
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.
A very nice restaurant. Great atmosphere, good food and service. Certainly we will return.
I had such a pleasant experience here last night. Everything was top notch - service, food, ambiance. I particularly loved their drinks list and will be going back several times just for that.
Very nice meal
Sole is one of our favourite restaurants in Waterloo and we were happy to take our friends there the other night. They hadn't tried it yet, and they liked it. Thanks!!
Fabulous lunch experience.My favourite restaurant.Food presentation was exceptional.
Great service and nice atmosphere. Haven’t been there in a long time and I would say they have improved the quality and service dramatically. Great experience and we will be back.
Not their best effort
Fantastic food coupled with exceptional service. Sole is outstanding - making everyday dining a special occasion.
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
Lunch was very good. Portion size was right on and presentation showed care and thoughtfulness. Service was attentive without being overbearing. A good experience all round.
Sole does not disappoint! The service, food and ambience makes this spot a favourite!
As always excellent food and service. I suggested Sole to my AVP and she loved it also.
Nice presentation of the plates and meal was tasty. Thought it was lght on the sides e.g one asparagus spear and a piece of zucchini. Think could of doubled it without affecting presentation but that’s just me. Overall enjoyed the meal.
Great value with the Sunday Prime Rib dinner - excellent tomato bisque and Caesar salads as the appetizer, prime rib was medium rare to rare - perfect! Mild garlic mashed and fresh steamed veggies filled us leaving no room for dessert!
The food was good. The server was pleasant but slow and not very attentive.
It was a great evening .Our server was amazing but my husband’s food was ok not great . My food was delicious .
The Noise was a bit too much for my hubby
Overall it was a nice unique experience .
Have been there multiple times with different friends, Enjoyed the evening with my wife celebrating Valentine's Day. The service and quality of food are consistently very good.
Thanks for the experience.
Amazing place I visited I Canada..fell in love with the food and ambience
Outstanding! The Beef Carpaccio was wonderful. I had never tried that before. Main course was excellent. Cheesecake was excellent and the drinks were reasonably priced
Food and services were great, considering it was a very busy night. Food and wine are well priced and everything we ordered was delicious!
Love Sole, however lately the fish is being served over cooked. Other than that, everything else tasted good.
Still a lovely restaurant to frequent for a good relaxing romantic dinner. On Valentine's the place was full.
We had a reservation at 5 on Valentine's Day. We were greeted with a friendly gesture. Once inside we were beside a table with two small children. Although not the restaurants fault the kids were loud throughout the dinner, taking away from the quiet and romantic evening we had planned.(Parents there are times to leave your children at home.)
My fiancee's appetizer was delicious(goat cheeses). However my Tomato bisque soup I found very watered down. The main entrees were adequate at best. Desserts were good.
This was not our first visit. Therefore we were expecting better.
Excellent food, friendly service! Great place for our Valentine's date!
Great food, atmosphere, accessibility and prices. Staff are always friendly and helpful. The only thing I would ask of this restaurant is that they make a few more items available for (non-fish eating) vegetarians.
Nice dinner. Enjoyed the 3 fish special and the cheesecake.
Food and service were great. Restaurant was very noisy due to a large group that was quite loud
Great dining experience, as always!
We all decided to choose options from their Winter Menu. 10 out of 10! The food was absolutely FANTASTIC! Strongly recommend these options stay on their menu. Sole is always a great option, the new Winter Menu only provides even more options.
Due to the price point being a little higher than I normally do, it was only my 2nd visit. It was also a friday night and a special occasion. Reservations were quite easy and availability was not an issue. We got in a little early for our resos, but they sat us immediately and we had a server in mere moments.
We started with martinis and 2 beautifully presented and delicious apps that were a little on the small side for their cost, but they more than made up for it with their quality.
Grabbing a wine with our actual dinners, which I couldn't decide between 2 dishes so I asked our server for his choice of the 2 and he made a gret choice in the boneless short ribs. Once again the dishes were beautifully presented and very flavorful. They were also much better on the quantity end.
Finishing the meal with a creme brulee, my co diner having vanilla and myself partaking in an orange and anise, never would I have thought to put orange and licorice together, but it was divine. The desserts were just the right size and hint of sweet to finish the meal.
All in all a beautiful meal, if a little on the pricey side. The only real downside was it got to be a little too loud and it was a bit too bright to be a "romantic" choice.
Had a great business lunch at Sole as always. This restaurant can always be counted on for innovative food and a great atmosphere.
I had chicken tacos but couldn’t pick them up as the tacos crumbled in my hands. Also, 2 good size chunks of gristle in the chicken. Ok but not great.
We usually love Solé but this time was a disaster from the start.
The hostess wasn’t welcoming at all! She barely spoke and didn’t smile. My husband commented to her about the cold and she just gave him a blank stare.
My husband ordered a beer and it took 15 mins for it to come, in an less than half full restaurant.
We ordered the Winter special they have on. The potato cakes were so salty and the chicken tacos.... well my husband had to spit out the chicken twice because of hard grizzle or bone in the taco. Also the taco itself was so dry that it just crumbled .
I had the chicken and my husband had the steak. The chicken was tender but the potatoes and broccoli was swimming in a gravy that was soooo salty my lips were tingling after. My husband order the steak medium which looked medium rare. The pieces were piled on top of mashed potatoes and the blood from the steak was running down on top of the potatoes. Turned him off from the start. The steak was chewy and not flavourful. The waitress was nice and took the steak portion off our bill. The chef needs to try other spices and seasoning other than salt. We were very disappointed and will be taking a break from Solé.
