Fabulous meals had by all. Service extraordinary!!!! Ambiance beautiful.
Easy to get to. Loved it.
This was our 2nd visit.
My husband and I both had the Schnitzel. It was delicious and just the right amount of food. Service was slightly less than expected for a restaurant of this caliber.
Server was not good this time, but usually service is good.
Sole never disappoints! AS usual the food was exceptional and well-served..however my family includes a vegetarion and I am surprised at the scarcity of menu options. Brunch and lunch menus were better than than the last time we had dinner. Perhaps they have added more vegetarian options now.
Wonderful service. We had a large table at the far end of the restaurant and were able to hear one another very easily. This is rare in most restaurants today.
Food was delicious and the selection was excellent.
Have absolutely nothing to complain about. Excellent food (ordered the chicken and the schnitzel) and great atmosphere. Had to ask for bread twice which was the only issue.
Sole uptown Waterloo is a very nice restaurant located in a building that's a hundred fifty years old from the Seagram's Distillery. Inside the restaurant is very pretty rustic doesn't have tablecloths but it is a very comfortable slightly upscale, good for family dinners birthdays, anniversar , l wouldn't say it's really a romantic restaurant but still very nice.
The food is good the menu is interesting the portions are not large so you need to order an appetizer or else you'll leave hungry.
Our server was very nice very good very attentive she paced the dinner very well we were there for my daughter's birthday and we had a very nice time we would go back.
My only negative the prices are high enough for small portions.
We love this restaurant and its affiliates but on this occasion we encountered a few challenges. Had a second couple with us and our server started out a Little absent so a fun start with cocktails was limited to finding our server again and again. One persons chicken was over and one had the fish trio and could not finish half of it (he’s a chef). Our bill came out to just under $500 when all said and done so yes... my expectations did not get met on this rare occasion. Ps i would love to see this restaurant step up its dessert game, perhaps bring back the banana tart! 😀
Great service and ambience. Food is overpriced and not very good for what you pay.
Was not a nice experience. My husband and I went there on Friday evening for our 2 year wedding anniversary. Waited over 20 minutes for someone to come to out table and greet us. It was the manager who was nice and took our drink order. Once he returned, he tried to introduce us to our server Josh who told the manager he needed to speak to him. They walked away and after several minutes the manager ended up returning and taking our order. It was a least an hour before we got our food. Josh finally came to become out server once we got our food. It was just a cluster and for 160 dollars, it was totally not worth it. Trying to get explanations on the foods was hilarious. The manager explained things in a way that made it sound so unappealing. Nobody ever checked to see if we enjoyed our meal and nobody even got our coats, I went to the rack and left the number ticket there and nobody even noticed. Food was good but brought down by the total lack of service. All the servers look like kids. It just looked totally unorganized for an expected good restaurant. Considering my husband and I never get out, it really, really sucked to see the service that would not even be appreciated at a low end fast food restaurant.
We went for my boyfriends birthday, I have been there many times before. We came at the peek of dinner so I expected to have a lengthy enjoyable evening.
Although our server was informative on our selections for dinner, I'd have to say his timing was off, very delayed. The manger brought over our first drinks. Great team work. After placing our appetizer, receiving our appetizer, eating out appetizer and seeeing our server, he waiting till our plates were totally cleared before taking our dinner order.
My boyfriend had the Duck and I had the Pork Meatballs, delivered by a different person again and then never to see our server while we ate at all. I was hungry and although I was not a huge fan of what I found to be very salty pork, our server never came to ask how our dinner was, so I ate and shared my boyfriends dinner. After our meals were finished another team member collected our plates and we saw our server whom dropped off desert menus.
I had a mini créme brûlée and my boyfriend was contemplating a specialty coffee. He needed a moment and had decided, but our server never came back till our wine was completely gone as well as my desert. Our server still asked, but by that point it was much to late.
All in all I would just have to say I was underwhelmed with our evening. Like I said I have been there plenty of times and wanted to bring all the enjoyable experiences I've had to my boyfriend, whom thought it was unfortunately, meh.
I may not recommend Sole this time, but it will be a while before I decide to come back.
The service was great, and the food was fantastic!
soups and salads various and delicious...always something different and local........always a treat.......birthday celebration with friends....
Everything was great. Definitely be back!
Above all, the wait staff were friendly, competent, and welcoming. The food was scrumptious, but the wine list needs an overhaul. Still, my group had a splendid evening and we look forward to returning in the near future.
Tables are not very comfortable but otherwise this is a nice place.
Service was good, food looked nice but taste was ok. We wouldn’t go back
Good menu with a nice variety of mediterranean appetizers. Very good selection of cocktails. Good place to go before heading to a movie at the Princess
Food and service was just average. Wasn't impressed tonight.
This is one of my favourite restaurants for special occasions. We can always count on a delicious meal whether it’s a leisure dinner or a quick Sunday brunch. I highly recommend it!
Dined with my wife on a Tuesday evening; welcomed at the door and quickly shown to our table. Enjoyed a wonderful plate of appetizers which we shared followed by the pasta dish of the day which was also very good. Our server was attentive although there were some gaps in his service. Over all a pleasant experience.
We had a delicious anniversary dinner. Our server was so helpful. Highly recommended this restaurant.
Sole has been a family favourite of ours since they opened. It is a great neighbourhood spot. This past weekend my boyfriend and I decided to take our friends there for a nice dinner. Our server was friendly enough, however, both men at the table ordered the feature steak that night. The food took quite a long time to arrive. Having worked in a steakhouse for years, I have a fairly accurate grasp of a "reasonable" wait time. What was extremely disappointing is that the potato that came with their meal was cold in the center. The Waitress took it back and it came back reheated, instead of replaced with a fresh one, and at the end of our meal. We were offered free dessert, which seemed like a half hearted effort to win us over. I'm not sure if it was our age, but I was under the impression that our business was really not that important to them. It was hugely disappointing. Despite being in walking distance, I don't think we'll be returning soon.
Friendly greeting on entering set tone for our lunch. Our server very helpful & attentive. Our food very good & served with good timing.
We thot value very good for tasty food & presentation.
One problem was ,room temp got a little cool but spoke to server who was able to have temp warmed up.
Would recommend this restaurant to all for any occasion . Have never been disappointed with our visits
It was a great meal to celebrate a special birthday💝
It your looking for a place to relax with fantastic service, great food, wine and an opportunity to linger for a few hours over a meal, this is the place to go.
I took my friend here for Sunday brunch for her birthday. We were greeted with a warm smile...and a complimentary mimosa! We both chose the eggs bene (you can have brunch or choose from the lunch menu). I had the lobster eggs bene...the chunks of lobster were huge, cooked perfectly. Oh so good. And the Hollandaise was done perfectly. The male manager on that day, was more than attentive and knowledgeable. We were treated to a free birthday treat after our lovely brunch. The restaurant itself did start to fill up once we were leaving around 12:30pm, but the noise level as not so much that you couldn't hear your guest's speaking. I can't wait to go back!
An all-around wonderful experience. The food is exquisite and the menu has a wonderful variety. The ambiance is captivating and you are transported to another place while dining. A must try!
The made to order pizza did not come as ordered. When asked for extra sauce the side was not hot. The mushroom sauce on the jagerschnitzel was flavourless and meagre. The calimari was under cooked
The one saving grace was excellent wine
Had been to Solé once before with a friend and really enjoyed it so decided to go again for a birthday meal with hope that my first experience was the norm for this restaurant. Was not disappointed; incredible food, excellent service, only one small glitch with an order which was promptly and professionally dealt with. Thanks for a fantastic evening, will definitely be back!
Sole is truly one of a kind. Our waitress, Katie, went above and beyond. We had one of the best meals we have ever had while at a restaurant. I would highly recommend this little gem.
Our experience was fantastic, as always. Our server was spectacular and made the experience even more enjoyable. Always great food and great service but somehow this last time was even better which is difficult to attain as their standards are high in achieving a great dining experience.
Have dined at Sole for many years, enjoy historic setting, service always excellent and food well presented and tasty. The outdoor patio is probably the best in the region and a treasure we always enjoy!
Sole restaurant is a perfect place for almost any small group or couple to have a nice glass of wine or spirits coupled with consistently delicious food and great service.
Have been a regular at Sole. Use to dine there at least twice a month. Last couple times have not been to par. So was giving another try. Again very disappointed, booked reservation a week ahead of Valentines Day because knew would be busy. Also was aware that there would be a special menu, not there regular menu. Let me say this, it will be awhile before I go back again. Messed up reservations, ask for a booth, was seated at a table. When I questioned they said I was right but the booth had been given to someone else. Waitress was not to attentive to needs, never came by once during the meal to ask if we wanted more drinks. The servings were very small and the vegetables consisted of one carrot, one broccoli and two beans. The menu for Valentines Day was just a take off of there regular menu but $20 more per serving. My advice to anyone thinking of trying Sole for a special occasion would be go somewhere else, there are plenty of other alternatives in the city.
I went with my fiance on Valentine's, that night there was a set menu in effect. Everything on it tasted delightful, the food was crafted to look impressive and taste fantastic. Kudos to the chef he/she did an amazing job. Our waitress was cheerful and attentive on such a busy night. The dessert was fantastic. The interior of the place is very warm and cozy. Go to Sole you won't be disappointed
Solé has consistently good food and service. I take people here who are new to Kitchener Waterloo and I am confident that we will enjoy a good meal at a reasonable price. we had a great lunch and the service was great and there is free parking which is a bonus nowadays.
The sweet potato lasagna was excellent
