    Perfect place for a date night! Dim lighting, quiet, a huge selection of wines, service was amazing. Our server went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with our food. There was a new type of food on the one dish and he said he could replace that with something else if we didn't enjoy it. Awesome service!

    We enjoyed everything about our booking at Sole but should have mentioned that we would have preferred not to sit in between two tables when there were many free benches and more initmate dining options available. We hope to visit again soon!

    Greeted by staff who took my coat and then lead to my seat in a booth which was pleasantly private.It looked over part of the kitchen.As I was dining alone,I preferred the booth to the open area.Service was very good.I had cesar salad which was tasty and then pan fried salmon which was cooked to perfection.Vegetables good.Didn’t feel like desert. Cappucino good.The bill took a while to arrive but I wasn’t in a rush.I was there for about an hour.This is my third visit and I will go again.On one occasion,our group was allocated a table in the back room and the ambience there is not as good.On my reservation I specified the main room.I went there after seeing a movie at the Princess Cinema and it is close.

    We both got the beef tenderloin and boy was it cooked perfect with a wonderful flavour, outstanding. Was disappointed that it’s was only three slivers of meat, for $30 a plate, I got two pieces of carrot, two pieces of turnip and three sizes of meat the size of my pinky. The pear salad was soooo good, my partner said the ceaser salad was amazing as well. We were there for lunch

    I really don't know what happened with the food yesterday night. My wife and I went to the restaurant 3 times before, and loved the food. Yesterday we ordered a pasta and lasagna. We got very surprised because the dishes came very fast (it was so quick that I believe that it was pre made already). The lasagna came with a very good presentation, but cold, very cold! It seemed that the cheese did have time to melt too ... The service was very good, with the waitress very kind, but the food was terrible! We got so surprised because it was one of my favourite restaurants. Now, I don't know if I come back again.

    Rather disappointing to be honest. This is the third time we have been at Sole in the past six months. The food was lacking flavour, over cooked steak, pasta was flavourless and very little to no sauce. Charcuterie came with Breton crackers. Prices are fine dining without the service to go along with it. This use to be one of my favourite restaurants in Waterloo. Sad to say I’m taking it off my list now.

    This is still my favorite go to restaurant. The staff are so pleasant and wonderful. It was great to see such a nice crowd on a Tuesday evening, however, I would say I believe that left the servers running off their feet and yet they continue to smile and make it a really wonderful experience. Our waitress was lovely

    Very friendly place but overall no wow factor to make me go back. Soup came cold, super tiny portion with hardly anything in it. Mostly broth. Others had a prime beef sandwich and for the price, small portion and was so so. Overall not terrible but not great.

    The charcuterie board was sub par. Served on a plate, and looked like sandwich meat from my fridge. The cheese was not great, and neither were the accoutrements. Our cauliflower pakora was cold when it arrived. We were never asked how we liked our food even though we left half the "board", and did not ask to take the remains home. The waitress was either not wanting to bother by asking us, or just didn't care. I had high hopes for the place as it is beautiful, but the food was not sadly.

    I went with friends and our server Sage was wonderful! The food was the big disappointment. I ordered the short ribs. The meat was done well but the polenta was dry, bland and over all ruined the dish. There was no sauce to moisten the polenta. My bill was well north of $50 and expect more from this restaurant.
