    The food was excellent. Unfortunately, our dinner felt rushed because the entrees arrived before pre dinner drinks and appetizers were finished. The wine for dinner had not even been poured and taste tested. Our waitress was very good, and apologetic for the rushed feeling.

    We are new to Kitchener and arrived late due to getting lost on Erb Street. Everyone was sympathetic and kept our reservation open. We were seated immediately and our server was at our table within 5 minutes. The food was excellent and the accompanying red wine we ordered was as well. Service throughout, remained top level. We are definitely going to go back there again with some of our friends.

    Two friends and myself went to sole in the afternoon to celebrate a birthday. We were initially sat in the middle of the section and it was quite loud for our “older” ears. I spoke to the hostess, sorry I don’t know her name, if we could move. She immediately said yes, she knew the floor bookings without even having to recheck , and set us up in great booth. She handled it promptly and graciously. Our server, Monika, was equally gracious, top notch. She made out substitutions in a very accommodating way, paced the serving of the food wonderfully, and touched base with us but not intrusively. And a surprise birthday crème brûlée was beautifully presented to our friend. She even paid attention to who in our party was the birthday woman. The experience was brilliant from start to finish. And the food was delish.

    Our guest commented that there could have been more pasta selections and there was no acknowledgement that it was a birthday celebratory. Other than those little things the food and service was very good.

    The entre menu is limited for vegetarians. Sweet potato lasagna? Weird. Traditional vegetarian lasagna would be better. The baby greens salad and the beet salad were delicious. Crab cake was great. The shrimp linguini with tomato sauce was delicious; four large seasoned shrimp. Cave Spring Niagara wine was a nice choice. Our waiterstaff Heidi was excellent.

    Sole is one of our happy places. In our opinion, new owners, The Charcoal Group, are off to a great start. The service and new menu were top-notch. I cannot thank enough the person/people who picked up on our Open Table request to have the "Charcoal Steakhouse - Coconut Creme Brulee" for dessert. What a pleasant surprise...thank you!

    We've been to Sole many times and know that it is a slightly pricier restaurant, however the prices seem to have increased significantly and the portions stayed small. The food, although tasty, wasn't exceptional considering the price. Very happy that an allergy accomodation was made for my order though as the server wasn't sure they would be able to do it. Overall it was a nice expericence, just far too expensive for what you get.

    I ordered the and explicitly asked that it be moist and tender, as I had enjoyed it in the past. It was overcooked, dry and cold. The server took it back and rather than risk ordering it again, I settled for the soup of the day which was lukewarm. Very disappointed.

    We’ve eaten there previously. One of our favourite lunch venues with great coffee. My friend/client just bought a unit at the Seagram Lofts. We both ordered the Cobb Salad and was very unremarkable. It was our 1st time having the Cobb Salad. Dressing was good but salad was limp and tasteless even with the bacon and chicken. Both of us felt the same. Mushroom Soup was excellent. We should have stuck to the crab cakes or scallops and Baby Greens & Pear Salad
