A return after having been away for a while reminded why we took that break. What a disappointing experience! Almost empty at a prime dinner time during the pre-holiday festive season should have been a clue. Ordering from the "holiday special" menu, the pork tenderloin was three different temperatures ranging from luke-warm to room temperature to cold - reheated for... More

We were a large group sitting at a long table, so the ambiance could have been a bit better, but that's what you get when 22 people sit down to a Christmas dinner. My French Onion Soup was great and followed up by a surf'n'turf done to perfection. My husband also enjoyed his steak.

I wanted to try the pizza in the menu thinking that it would be amazing for the kind of restaurant. I decided to go with the Quattro Stagione. Honestly I thought I was eating pizza at Chuck Cheese. The crust was hard, tons of cheese, and a weird presentation of olives artichokes and tomatoes. Not impressed at all. Heavy and... More

We were greeted warmly, our coats taken, and we were led to a table. Our server was gracious, professional and efficient. The meal, special of the day, was beautifully presented, delicious and just the right amount. We were not rushed; we enjoyed the food and our conversation. All in all, it was a lovely experience.

This is a very popular spot. We visited twice in the last month. First time it was for appetizers thin crust pizza and salad. The food was tasty. We returned later for dinner, I ordered calamari it was way over done and greasy, I also had pork schnitzel the coating was overdone and greasy. The pork was acceptable but disappointing... More

Lots of variety on menu. Difficult to make a choice. Caesar salad one of the best I have ever had. I did feel that the mussels I ordered were very tiny. Flavour was excellent.loved $3.00 dessert tasters. Had Creme Brûlée. Service was excellent.

My friend has visited Sole before, she reserved a table ahead of time and was promised,on the phone, chef's recommended dishes for both of us. Disappointedly we found nothing prepared. The service was very pleasing. The lighting and music were great. My friend ordered the dish of the day, but it was too dry. She encouraged me to try her... More

Solé is an intriguing combination of predictable and unusual. The "predictable" part is that the service is always excellent, the food is fine, the wine selection very good, and the environment convivial… both inside and out on the patio in warmer weather. The "unusual" is the cuisine, in that the menu does change, and the choices are always intriguing, well-prepared... More

Anytime I return to Waterloo, I love to stop by this upscale restaurant & bar. Sit at the bar, order the crab cakes and enjoy a Grey Goose martini.
