We had an enjoyable lunch, your patio is lovely. The only issue was the parking lot was totally full and the street behind Sole has only 1 hour parking limit. 3 of the 4 in our party had to park on the road. Thankfully the bylaw officers did not ticket us. If they had ticketed all 3 of us I don’t think we would be so anxious to return.

We were at Sole for my daughter's birthday. We had the Prime Rib which was great. Outstanding service from Tyler and really nice ambiance sitting outside on the patio. Great experience

We were glad to be back at Sole after being in lockdown for so long. My only disappointment with the entire evening was the greeting or should I say lack of greeting when we arrived. It was cold unwelcoming and turned me off right away. We were shown to our table with a menu and a mini drink menu. We chose our drinks only to find out that there was a larger drink/wine menu. Why we were not given that initially is beyond me. But we were happy to get it. Meredith our server came over and the welcoming was much more warm and friendly. From this point on the evening was much more enjoyable. We had the charcuterie board for 2 then split the penne carbonara and the burrata with heirloom tomorrow’s. It was divine and we were pleasantly surprised when Meredith on her own had the chef split up the meals knowing we were sharing. The food was delicious.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere, meal, good service. Had Braised Beef short ribs, excellent! Jagerschnitzel - very good, Penne Carbonara - delicious but a bit too simple, could use some greens & mushrooms on the side. Wine was great & moderately priced, desert & drinks excellent. Very enjoyable evening in an elegant setting.

Beautiful building, our waitress Theadora was wonderful and personable. The mussels were a nice dish to start with Prosecco. Had the short ribs for dinner with a 1/2 L of red.

Table was a little small. Other than that. Great meal.

Good. Unfortunately it started to rain and we were taken inside to the wine room. It felt too close given COVID and it was quite loud. Other than that I enjoyed our get together at Sole.

What's so good to get out and enjoy in-house dining for the first time in a long time. Service was lovely. The fruit gazpacho soup was phenomenal flavours. Had the Florentine pizza. Great crust. And the best dessert I've ever had in my life... Chocolate Tiramisu!

Pizza was over cooked, the chicken wasn’t very tasty and dry, and couldn’t see crab meat at all. For the cost, I expected better!!

We did not complain as my daughter paid the bill and we didn’t want to seem ungrateful. Not sure I’ll return

Sole have done an excellent job with the patio, they know how to set the mood. Food great, service great, noise level perfect (you should change that question, because 'energetic' almost appears as the default 'best' response but I think most people dining at Sole are not looking for 'energetic' noise levels, but more like Nora Jones noise levels, if that makes sense).
Great job you guys, we always enjoy our visits there.
