A word from Sole Restaurant
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 rack of lamb will satisfy any appetite. An extensive wine list (with a Wine Spectator Award of Excelence), 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. In the Summertime, Outside Dining on a Heated Patio is available. **Please note: we are unable to guarantee specific table requests or patio requests. Please inquire upon arrival.

Diner Reviews
  • "Went for dinner and it was great. I really enjoyed the food and the service was awesome. The manager was around helping out and was a nice experience for sure."

  • "As an avid complainer, I found absolutely nothing to complain about. My food was hot and delicious. The meal was perfectly timed. Our server was attentive but not overbearing. From the sweet potato lasagne to the cheesecake, this meal was outstanding, and paired perfectly with our chosen wine. Will definitely be back."

  • "We were seated in a quiet room off the main dining room. Not sure why, but it worked out well for us as I don't care for a high noise level. I did notice when we arrived that the main dining room was booming and very loud. The food was spot on, but service on the slow side. On the other hand, I am not a lingerer. The only real negative was my latte...very weak and tasteless. I didn't mention it as I tired and ready to go at that point."

  • "My husband and went for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The restaurant served us a nice crème brulée to help us celebrate the occasion (for which they charged us for) however). The food was good but not spectacular; pretty much what I am used to at Solé (The food does tend to be blend). The server was attentive and service was prompt. The restaurant is in a nice location and I always like the atmosphere"

  • "The food was excellent, and the service as well. We had visitors from the Europe and they were very happy with the choice of the restaurant."

  • "Great atmosphere, good food and quiet enough that discussion of sensitive business topics was possible. Will definitely use again for meeting prospective partners as all present were pleased with the complete package."

  • "We were very pleased with our brunch experience. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was fresh, well prepared, well presented and very tasty. The menu was varied, making us want to return to try other offerings. We would definitely recommend it to others."

  • "Recently had a family dinner with adult children. Quiet for a Saturday evening. Service was not attentive with gaps between dinner and the bill bordering on neglect. Presentation and taste was good but both steaks ordered missed the mark overdone. Saving grace both extremely tender and flavourful. Good for dinner with friends, not "great" for special occassion."

  • "a wonderfully varied menu, with gluten-free options available, yet not comprising in any way on superb quality and delectable taste"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Good food, good service. Egg white omelette was delicious. Beautiful building; however can be noisy due to the setup. Therefore makes a nice brunch ambiance when there are fewer people."

  • "Sole does a great job of making people feel welcome. Little touches like taking our coats and checking in frequently to be sure things are OK. The food was wonderful."

  • "We went to Sole for Valentine's day and it was really good! I had the steak which had a sweet shallot sauce. Not something I would have ever done myself but it worked really well!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We have been going to Sole's for years and it's still our favorite restaurant anywhere. The food is always terrific no matter what you order and the service is very friendly and professional. Exceptional wine list and a nice setting. We find this is a great place to go for lunch or dinner with friends, for business, or just together for a nice evening out. You can't go wrong with Sole."

    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Good experience. Not much to complain about. I had the baked salmon and it was tasty despite not being a big quinnoa fan."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "If you are a meat eater, the food is especially appreciated as the entree was delicious. However, one of us chose a vegetarian entree which elicited the comment: most exceptional kitchens have a difficulty maintaining the same quality for non-meat entrees (vegetarian, vegan). We appreciated the entire menu, drinks and deserts included, with this one exception."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to Sole for Valentine's Day dinner. As we walked in, we were surprised by the cozy atmosphere and the large dining space. The menu for V-day was a set menu but we still got some dishes to choose from. He got the beef tenderloin which was a little dry but tasted okay while I got the seafood risotto. It tasted great at first but then I soon noticed a tingling in my mouth, and it turns out I was sensitive to something in the risotto. I have never been allergic to any type of seafood and I eat it all the time, so I wonder what else was in there to cause a reaction. In any case, that threw off the night, and the desserts to follow (tiramisu and cheesecake) were way too sweet."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I went to this restaurant with my fiance for Valentine's day dinner. They had a special VDay menu, and charged $50/person+tax. I liked the food: soup for appetizer, which was good, sweet potato lasagna for main course, which was also good. The dessert, however, was EXTRAORDINARY. I had raspberry cheesecake, and I literally devoured it in one minute! Overall, I think it was too expensive for such small portions. But the food quality was great. I would only recommend it for special occasions."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Valentines Day can be hectic in a restaurant and Sole was busy on February 14 2014. However, we never felt rush, we were not made to feel that my wife's allergies were a problem on such a busy night; on the contrary, our server Jontue was extremely patient in explaining everything. Thank you Sole and in particular Jontue."

  • "Our dining experience at sole was very enjoyable. The service was great, the coat check service was unique and a brilliant idea. The atmosphere was good, a great place for couples. The servers/ hostess were very nice and attentive. I do recommend that you do not sit near the window in the back room, it was rather chilly because of the draft. The food was excellent, I recommend the sweet potato lasagna and the raspberry cheese cake for dessert they were fantastic. Overall, a great restaurant Sole is the perfect place for you and a special someone to indulge in a wonderful dining experience."

  • "My girl friend and I had the best lunch EVER honestly we both don't remember having such a tasty lunch. We both had the lunch special I don't have the fancy name for it but the carrot soup and ham with smoked cheese and caramelized onion on a cheese bun. It was a burst of flavour, none to compare. We also had the best wine, Oyster Bay white from New Zealand wow I'm definitely buying that wine!! Our compliment to the chief and also to the nice server she was most helpful and polite!!! THANK YOU!"

  • "What a great meal. Good food and wine, the atmosphere is perfect. It's a really gorgeous building. The service was friendly and they even wrote happy birthday on my dessert on chocolate. So they get my recommendation. Great date spot or for a small group."

  • "This is one of my favorite fine dining restaurants. We have been dining there since it opened its doors and we will continue for many years to come."

  • "My partner and I took part in the Tri-City Wine and Dine festival, and had the prix fixe dinner on a Saturday evening. The food and wine were excellent. The restaurant itself is lovely, with well-preserved heritage architecture. The only downsides are that the music playing overhead was a bit intrusive (Bob Marley? Billy Joel?) and there were substantial number of kids around. Otherwise, definitely recommend Sole!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Sole was recommended by a friend from K/W for our special get together with friends. It was a lovely evening. The food was interesting and well prepared, with lots of choice on the menu. The mini desserts were actually quite generous so it didn't feel like "not enough". The pace was well managed. We felt cared for but not rushed. We'll come again to try other menu items."

  • "The food was excellent! Our server did an exceptional job. We brought our two children with us, and they really enjoyed it too! We will certainly come back again."

  • "Had a lovely meal here, and it pleased 3 generations of women. The food was delicious (gnocchi, pasta arrabiata), and service lovely. I would highly recommend this restaurant for those looking for a completely well done experience, start to finish, in the mid range, price-wise."

  • "This was an anniversary dinner for me and my husband we don't get to get out much as we're busy with work kids etc. and if anything from the lack of customer service this waitress has and rudeness this will be the last time we visit sole-it's funny because were regular customers at del dented which their chained and we never experienced the level of rudeness-I think your staffing (especially the older blonde lady) refresher on how to treat your customers!"

  • "I dined here on an Open Table suggestion and I am glad I did. The service was exemplary and the food was beyond delicious. If I lived closer I would definitely be attending this fabulous dine spot again. Our server was on her game, she made spot on recommendations and did not leave us wanting for anything."

  • "We were celebrating our son's birthday and he found a tiny wire in his delicious gnocchi. We merely relay the incident to the server, they immediately investigated the matter and the manager came out to personally apologised! He was given a free meal and free desserts, least to our expectation!"
