    Our dining experience was wonderful. It was our one year anniversary which we got married at the Loews. They really went all out to show us that they cared and really took great care of us. I would definitely go back any time. The food was out of this world and the service was incredible!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 6/14/2008
    I took my significant other to SoleFood for his birthday. He loves shellfish whereas I'm deathly allergic but my food was good (the NY steak for dry, but then again it did say dry-aged) but his was spectacular (he had the sea bass). THe service was excellent, his dessert was unique and delicious. We had a secluded booth in the back for the romance factor. However, the dining area is not a place for children. Being as though this is connected to The Lowes Hotel, there was a family there with a little boy who obviously has not yet been diagnosed with his apparent ADD who was running around yelling but this was definitely a wonderful experience. My only complaint is that the bar food cannot be mixed w/the regular menu.

    The fish selections were inventive and delicious. The menu was varied for a seafood lover, but I really wouldn't recommend bringing anyone who doesn't like fish, considering there aren't many alternatives to it on the menu. I highly enjoyed my meal, especially the new dessert, peanut butter and jelly brownie!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 6/6/2008
    The experience started well by being promptly taken to our seats when we arrived and a jazz band was performing. However, the service left much to be desired. There was literally one waiter for approx. 7 tables and some of the tables sat 5 people. The waiter was stretched too thin but the managers were walking around like nothing was wrong. After eating, there was a mistake on our check and we had to wait another 20 minutes to get out check back! The food was great but I have had better service at TGIFridays. Maybe it would be better on a weeknight.

    Our server, Shango, was great! He made the experience very memorable and I really do appreciate it. The menu was not plentiful, nor were the portions. This confirmed my hesitation of eating at hotel restaurants due to the limited selection on the menu.

    The bar scene wasn't very vibrant, but there was music and people from the hotel and the street that kind of went in for the bar. Also, the actual dining area was nice and peaceful for a nice date. Food was too expensive for what was provided. Overall it was a pretty good experience.

    Very good food. I was directed from my original choices by the waiter who steered me to their Hamachi appetizer (melt in your mouth!) and Chilean sea bass (outstanding). A couple of hiccups in service, but nothing that overly disrupted the delicious meal and nice ambience. A jazz combo and singer provided a lovely sonic backdrop to the evening.

    Excellent service. Escellent food. Excessively loud. There is a huge bar area which is open to the restaurant eating area; it was impossible to carry on a dinner conversation because of the noise. Very unfortunate overall experience because of this.

    We ate at Sole Food for Mother's Day brunch. While it was a bit pricey, the brunch was wonderful! They had everything from carved meats, to seafood, to caviar. The dessert table was fantastic. A very nice touch was a separate kids table with french toast, fried chicken fingers, and beautiful cupcakes and worms in dirt for dessert. We enjoyed the whole experience.

    Raw appetizers were top notch. Hamachi a favorite. Portions did put one in a mind of dropping by the local 7-11 after. Salad was OK, but dull. Entrees well prepared, but a bit underseasoned. The menu offers a lovely variety of interesting dishes, but the presentation of each dish was the same sort of 'stacked in a bowl' thing that doesn't do justice to the entree or it's garnish. Dessert was lovely, the cappucino so-so.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 4/20/2008
    Our experience was typical of an 'I don't care, we have to be open' hotel dining room. We were seated at a table in that was directly in the path of carts, bus tubs,and tables from some event the staff was tearing down in another part of the hotel? It took 35 minutes to receive our breakfast food. we were served lukewarm water with no ice when we requested water. I was never offered a refill on my coffee. My french toast was just warm, not hot, although my daughter's omelet was decent. This was worse than going to IHOP for breakfast. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

    We met a prospective client for breakfast and chose your restaurant simply because he was staying at the Loews. A very happy acccident! Although we don't yet know if his organization will become a client, I was very pleasantly surprised at the amount -- and quality -- of the smoked salmon I received with my order. I can't think of the last time I was unable to clean my plate at breakfast. I do hope I will have the chance to return on another trip to Philadelphia.

    Dined on 3/21/2008
    This was our 2nd visit to sole Food,both times we sat in the same area of the lounge for dinner as to see the live jazz band which is excellent. Although the food was still excellent the service was poor this time, the only time our waiter was really around was when we didn't need him. After the first visit I would have called this place romantic as my husband and I sat on a sofa and enjoyed dinner and the music however, there were actually young children running freely around the lounge area this time - it was awful - I can't believe they allowed this + a bunch of freeloading young adults - at least 8 loafing next to us on the sofa, ordering nothing and starting little fires with the candle on the table - nobody said a word to them!
