This restaurant was buzzing! We went out with friends for dinner first time in a long time and it was a great re-entry into the world of dining out. Service was amazing; Ante was funny, professional and entertaining.

We all ordered seafood and we couldn’t rate it highly enough. It was our first time in this restaurant. Our friends had been a few times before… they said it’s consistently good and this time didn’t disappoint. It will not be our last time, if we can get a reservation; the place was hopping with a great atmosphere!

Only comment is to be ready to work to get your food with some of the plates but it’s worth it!

The restaurant was a fantastic experience. I had asked for a special request for a birthday and this was accommodated and provided. I was also unsure about which drink to have and the bartender created a special drink for me which was just out of the world. The only thing that could have been better was the table location. Our table was at the entrance of the restaurant and we had asked for a special table, but I guess it can be written off because our booking was a little later in the night. Overall the restaurant was fantastic and the food was lovely as well. Special mention to all the staff as they were so friendly and welcoming. Will definitely recommend this restaurant for those special date nights!

Service was impeccable. We never once had to pour our own water or wine. Our waiter, Joe, was always keeping an eye on us and ensuring we were being looked after. When we go to Sole again, we will ask to be in Joe's section as it was a pleasure to interact with him.

If you like good seafood - Sole is the place to go. There is a massive selection and sorely something to everyone's taste.

There's a fantastic ambience and it was great to see people out again enjoying themselves.

Only two gripes that could be taken care of easily - prongs on my cutlery were not aligned (I'm sure it was a dishwasher accident) but should be checked before laying the table. Second, why paper napkins? A restaurant at this level should provide proper linen.

Fantastic restaurant. Top class service. My wife suffers with a dairy allergy and they were able to make adjustments to their sauces and dishes so she could eat whatever she wanted. Delighted. Will be back.

Booked a table for my wife’s 40th birthday as part of our birthday trip to Dublin, Sole did not disappoint! The restaurant it’s self was very clean and spacious. The food was absolutely delicious! Our waiter Ante was very polite and friendly, he made an already great evening better, he was also very knowledgeable about the food the restaurant served and gave a few recommendations. Would highly recommend visiting this restaurant if you’re planning a trip to Dublin.

Had a beautiful lunch here on Saturday afternoon. Really well laid out restaurant, well decorated, nice spacious seating. Very pleasant waiter Jonata. I had expertly cooked scallops for starter which were delicious and my wife had tempura squid which was crispy and the squid was tender. We both had the hake special, which came with buttery fondant potato and mussels in a well balanced cream sauce. With a nice bottle of Albarino, a coffee and a cocktail, it was a great meal and good value for money. Only negative would be €5.50 for sparkling water is a bit overpriced. Would definitely return - best seafood in city centre I have had.

We had a really nice meal, good choice of food and good service partcularly with Ante our waiter. Sole were professional in how they handled the Covid restrictions, with distancing and certs.
We will definitely be back, but probably not on a Friday or Saturday as with the place so busy the noise levels were very high and sometimes found it difficult to talk over, though not enough to stop us going back. I can recommend a visit.

Had a pre-theater dinner here last night. Service was really brilliant. Food was good, wine was great, I was disappointed by my desert and the bread selection and would have preferred a table away from the kitchen door. Overall it was an enjoyable meal.

This was one of the rare recent occasions where the front of house team not only matched but actually slightly exceeded the brigade.

The attention to detail, the care and passion into the whole customer experience was superb. Equally the quality and standard of food coming across the pass was excellent.

The last time we experienced front of house service like that was in a London Michelin Starred establishment - well done.

Finally, thanks to Joe who was our server and frankly made the evening; not forgetting the sommelier who was the cherry on the cake!

Excellent restaurant. Sat at the bar and had some of the best fish I have ever had. Went there my first night in Ireland and it was so good, I made it my "farewell" dinner too. Wonderful food and service. A place you have to visit.

Very solid standards here. No serious quibbles with food, service. As usual in Dublin the kick is in having to pay a high price for average wine.

It is a very fancy restaurant, with cosy and romantic, warm atmosphere. The food is very good, especially the catch of the day we had, ray fish. All the waiters were outstandingly friendly, in particular Anca was great.
