SOLE Seafood & Grill
Food excellent, service very good
Had a great evening on my solo trip. Oysters were delicious. For the main I had a sea-bass - was good too. Side - spinach was little overcooked but it didn't spoil my supper.
Excellent food and service. Really enjoyed the dining experience.
Fabulous food, beautiful restaurant! If you love seafood you need to visit here.
Best experience ever. Tip top service. Very friendly waiters Emil and Ante. Nice surrondings exclusive bar.
Food all competently executed but as a tasting menu not really that special. Dishes came at slightly too fast a tempo for a tasting menu. It was all nice but nothing exceptionally memorable. Oysters were good, scallop pleasant. Best course was the sea bass which was well balanced. My partner thought it was under-seasoned but was perfect for me. Sorbet was good. With the beef course we both though that overall the dish was too salty with both the sauce and the crumb on the plate being very salty. One or the other, not both! The steaks were perfectly cooked to order and whilst the langoustines delivered well on flavour, the texture was slightly on the chewy side. Overall we both thought the beef course including vegetables was slightly too large for a tasting menu. Perhaps if the dishes had been more spaced out it wouldn’t have felt so filling. Dessert was good if not exceptional - again a reduction in portion size might be of benefit - the passion fruit mousse filling was tasty but simply too much of it in proportion to the other ingredients on the plate. Nice coffee. Overall worth a visit but maybe our expectations were set quite high on account of the accolades the restaurant has garnered.
Dear Pat, I am surprised you did not find our tasting menu exceptional as the majority of guests do. Apologies if you felt the tempo of the tasting menu was to fast for you, however if you have had let us know on the evening, we would have slow down the service at your convenienece. I am sorry you did not enjoy the beef and tiger prawns. I have passed your comments to our Head Chef. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to discuss this further Kind regards, Victor N. General Manager
The staff were perfect. Helpful in explaining dinner options. Checked in to see how we were getting on but weren’t intrusive at all
Small item - 9pm booming and table was not ready until 915 and bar was too full to access and get a drink - they should contact customers proactively to notify of delays.
Service was good, nicely decorated. Very noisy and tables are quite close.
I had the fish and chips, the flesh of the fish was beautiful however the batter was soggy. Wife had John dory and was happy with what she had. €134 for two including a bottle of wine is expensive by European standards but I suppose the norm for Dublin.
The food was good but waited for nearly an hour between starters and main course. When I asked the manager what the delay was he said it’s a Saturday night and we are busy . Not the answer I would have expected . He was quite blunt with me. When I asked another manager , I was told that there was a mess up with our order . They took the drinks off the bill but we didn’t go there to get free drinks . I would rather get a good service and pay in full .
This is one of my all time favourite restaurants in Dublin
Absolutely beautiful food. Highest standard I think I’ve ever eaten. Steak melted in my mouth and a good choice of oysters. The Atmosphere was perfect and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be coming back when I’m in Dublin next.
Was there Saturday evening with a group food,wine and cocktails were all outstanding... Service was exceptional and the early bird menu great value for money will definitely be returning and highly recommend is a great place for group or couples with a great atmosphere
Beautiful atmosphere, service and food, very special night
Food was ok, not wonderful. Best part of meal was dessert. Service very good. Our table was out of main restaurant, ambience not great.
Nice fish restaurant with excellent wines and outstanding seevice by Emil!
Amazing seafood and stuff. Thanks for this amazing night
I cannot fault the food at all. And I understand the need to utilise available space but once again an outstanding meal was slightly let down by a small table. We were a party of four and struggled to make room for all of our plates.
I am a seafood lover and Sole is definitely my favourite place in Dublin. With my wife we visit the restaurant once a month usually.
The food selection and quality are extraordinary.
All members of staff are super cool and friendly, treating the clients with a lot of attention.
Special thanks to David and Ante!
Amazing experience every time!! :)
Would highly recommend . Really good food and great service .
The Rockefeller oysters were delicious! Our waiter Emil was great and he provided an amazing service! We enjoyed a lot!
Very nice seafood restaurant in Dublin. Nice spot to go for a date. On the pricey side, but the food is great and the atmosphere is great.
Very good food on Friday. My only gripe was quite expensive in comparison to eating much the same food from early bird menu on previous occasion
excellent food and service, food not too expensive depending on what you order but the wine is totally over the top in price .
The seafood is sumptuous to die for.
Enjoyed the food but felt it was overpriced. Would have been useful to have been told when booking of the tables that were high and difficult to sit at. We gad been given a voucher so did not know anything of restaurant in advance and no lower tables were available when we arrived. While it's advertised as 'cosy casual' I felt the prices of drinks wine belied this especially as had been voted No 1 luxury seafood restaurant in Europe.
Best restaurant I have been to in Dublin, around 80-90 Euros per eprson, so if you want good restuatrant and willing to sepnd, this is the place
overpriced tho , nice atmosphere and location , service slightly slow but overall pleased
It was an amazing and delicious food that we have ever tried. Our waiter was very kind and helpful. Thank you very much.
Lovely food service was great the only issue I would have is I thought the scallop starter was a bit mean the scallops where very small but they where nice.
The best service ever! Emil was so friendly and helpful, coming back again!
Great experience from start to finish! Staff were always at hand when needed
We had our first visit to Sole last weekend. We had heard great reports and it certainly did not disappoint! The food was superb, service excellent and ambience really welcoming and with an great vibe. The prawn cocktail starter brought me back to the 70s but with a big difference - quality!
We had halibut and Dover sole as main courses and both were as good as we have ever experienced.
The wine list is good but expensive. Overall the experience was fantastic and we will be back!
Brilliant ambience, very friendly staff, great food, lovely relaxing restaurant. Would highly recommend.
Excellent food and service.
Enjoyed immensely.. staff were excellent
Great business meal, staff really attentive and very friendly. Food lovely as always! Thanks
We liked Sole and we have have already recommended to friends.
Lovely place to eat and each of my friends agreed they would be back.
