We probably hadn't been to Sole for dinner in over 10 years. Not because we didn't like it but because had moved away. Went their for a quiet anniversary dinner. Great menu selections, specials of the day were indeed special and creative, really good wine list and most importantly excellent service. Both our meals met expectations and our wine by the half litre was exactly as we had hoped. Overall a perfect night!

Anniversary dinner..... felt rushed like they wanted us out asap. They have a Oktoberfest menu for $35.....its not authentic, spatzele stuck together and soup was very bland, desert seemed bought somewhere else and doughy. My appetizers were very good, mussels very very hot but no bread to get the remaining juice (had to ask for it) and no spoon for the juice. I ordered the beef tenderloin at $36, very tender but served cold. Waitress said they could make another but after I was almost done I could not eat another, she also offered free desert...I am don't normally eat dessert. Nothing taken off the bill.......ho hum was the order of the meal.....we left not totally impressed after I checked 4 different restaurants and deciding on Sole. This place is not the same as it was 2 years ago. Sorry to say. Rather disappointed this time.

Sole has been a dining location in Waterloo that my wife and I have found to be a consistently excellent dining experience. This restaurant has been our "go to" choice when entertaining our out of town guests. Do not miss out on the soup or salad appetizers as all are creative and delicious. The "mains" always provide a difficult choice of options.
The former Seagram's building, over 150 years old, is an iconic Waterloo location.
We have found the the service to be professional and attentive. Seating includes table, booths and also an outdoor area.
We hosted approximately 25 people for a wedding rehearsal dinner in their back room. If you choose to dine here, take a peek at this room just past the bar. It is a very comfortable and private space for a larger gathering. As usual, our guests that night were not only provided with great food choices, but also the expected great service.

We were there for Sunday brunch. The selection for brunch is excellent. The regular menu is also available. Both menus have interesting choices. Like eggs benedict with lobster instead of ham or bacon. It has real chunks of lobster tail. Same with the lobster club. They have a great outdoor patio. Good for warm summer days. However on cooler days, they have outdoor heaters. The service is excellent. We have been here several times and the food and service has been consistently good
