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.

Have been here a number of times over the years but want to talk about my experience this summer at lunch on the patio. This is a patio that should not be missed, it is like stepping into a gardens in the middle of the city, very private and isolated from the street. The food at Sole is elegant and... More

After ordering our food and drinks at the same time it took almost 10 min just to get our drinks. After our Apps it took along time for our... More

We came to Waterloo to visit one of our sons at school. I had found this place online and it had good ratings. It deserved them! The space is very pretty, and the service is friendly and attentive. The menu is large, with salads, appetizers, pizzas, pastas, entrees and specials. We all ordered the grilled cheese and bacon special, and... More

1. I shared a short rib riff on a poutine with my guest. It was made with sweet potato fries. My friend has lactose allergies, so the cheese curds were left on the side. It was good. 2. I had the roasted bistro fillet for my main. The polenta was delicious. Crispy (as it was a cake that was sectioned... More

Last monthly, our luncheon group chose Sole in Waterloo. The food and service were excellent. Each choice of food was enjoyed. It was a good place for a group. We had ten people and you could participate easily in the conversation. The location is very convenient and lots of parking.

I hope this is one in a million experiences because the restaurant is nice and the manager is kind. However, having said that... As this is my first night in Waterloo, I wanted to celebrate and having heard so many, I thought I would treat myself to this restaurant. The ladies who took my reservation and my coat were welcoming.... More

We wanted to eat out of the hotel but after a long day, didn't want to drive or walk too far. This was the answer and we really enjoyed it and so did a lot of others, based on how busy it was. We had pizza which was very good and all the other plates that passed by us looked... More
