Having grown up in K/W I love that this area kept the old Seagram's buildings. Has a wonderfully relaxed and beautiful atmosphere. I do feel that the food is a wee bit overpriced for what they serve. That said, the food is still quite good.

High end restaurant with an equally high end customer and food experience. Food was unbelievably good and wine recommendation was wonderful. I would recommend this to anyone who loves food and is looking for a cozy atmosphere.

A group of five of us called in without a booking on a friday evening and a table was quickly found for us. All of us were happy with our meals and they were reasonably priced. I tried the salmon with quinoa and it was delicious

It's always fun to head out somewhere different, so we made it Waterloo. A lovely university town where the "uptown" is undergoing construction for improved transit. Many little shops still open behind those safety fences. We did reserve for dinner, a good idea for this popular spot. Sole's interior is very warm and welcoming. Parking on site. Colourful art decorates... More

From the ambiance to the service to the food, Sole Restaurant is always outstanding. I make a point of eating here every time I am in Waterloo. It is an easy walk down the hill from the Delta Waterloo. The menu is varied. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The chef is inspired. It is a little pricey but worth... More

When my son got married he and his wife chose Sole Restaurant for their dinner. The room was very elegant and intimate for a family of about 18. I'm sure it would accommodate a few more people.

Two enjoyed their bacon and cheese omelettes, one the Eggs Benedict although forgot to say no spinach and I enjoyed the pear and chicken salad from the lunch menu. We made reservations... More
