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.

  • "Great location for summer and year round dining. Seating areas include shade and sun - whichever you prefer. A very pleasant patio - with the bonus of great food and wine !"

  • "We are regular patrons of Sole restaurant. If a quiet dining experience filled with ambience is what your after then this is the place. Not ONCE has the service or food been a disappointment. The wait staff are impeccable. When it is time to pay, there is no waitress/waiter hovering over the table with "the machine"."

  • "We checked out Sole for our first date night out in a long time! Loved the ambience and the food was excellent. My vegetarian husband had no trouble finding things to eat and loved every bite! We thoroughly enjoyed all our courses and were impressed with the plating of the food, as well as the combination of flavours. The bread was excellent and dessert and coffee were a great way to finish an excellent meal! Well worth the cost and the service was very attentive!"

  • "Our family had dinner together at Sole Restaurant and Wine Bar following our son's graduation from University of Waterloo. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and food. Our server made us all feel very welcome and served us in a friendly and professional manner. This was an exceptional dining experience and an excellent way to celebrate our son's achievement."

  • "We discovered Sole about two years ago, and it never disappoints. This evening we were celebrating my birthday, as well as my son's birthday. Our server was outstanding; friendly, professional, fun, attentive. The food, as always was wonderful. My daughter had the sweet potato lasagna, a favourite of ours. The boys had specials, which were really good. We were able to sit outside on the patio, which is particularly great in the Summer. Had an absolutely lovely evening, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "Still our favorite restaurant in all of Kitchener Waterloo area for many years now. Food is always very good and the service is top notch and friendly. Always love the atmosphere and the history of the building. I don't think we have ever had even a small complaint with Sole and it's our favorite restaurant for special occasions and just nice weekend evenings out."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Went there for brunch and we were quite disappointed with the food and the lack of service. My rainbow trout tacos was the worst tacos i've ever had. They should take them out from the menu. The place was nice but the food was not that good. My family are foodies and we like to try new restaurants all the time but we are definitely NOT GOING BACK to this one. Service was on the slow side esp. when it came to our table. There were guests who came after us and they got their food first. The male manager who was helping to serve the food seems to prefer certain type of clientele. The only good thing we got was from the young lady who took away our plates. She was nice and helpful and I wish I knew her name. "

  • "Last minute decision to go out on Good Friday. Sole just happened to be doing a seafood theme. Halibut Salmon and seafood medley where all excellent. Wine selection was good and reasonable priced. "

  • "Sole has once again hit the mark. Every time we are in Waterloo we go to Sole and the food, service and ambience has been terrific."

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "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."
