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.

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!

Not the best value restaurant but the food is good and very nice surroundings. Big problem is the wine is a rip off, The Rioja (Marqués de Murrieta) you can buy online for €20. At Sole they charge €64. Their Pouilly Fuisse you can buy for €25 but Sole charges €79. I've no problem with a restaurant adding a 100 or 125% margin but Sole is applying a 250% mark-up on all their wine, which is outrageous and a pity as it is a restaurant you'd go to celebrate something.

We enjoyed out meal. We sat at the bar and had an excellent waiter which adds to a great night dining. We had the mussel for an appetizer which were delicious. My husband had scallops for a main which he really enjoyed. I tried the salmon dish that was "Asian-ish" and really liked the flavor. We enjoyed Sole.

Went in the afternoon. I had the 3 courses lunch menu (scallops, sea bass and brownie), very nice. She had the sole, the "deboning" show is always a nice plus. Sole was perfect.
Great time, lovely place, may be on the dearer side but well worth it. Service is impeccable and staff very professional and courteous.

Quick trip to Dublin and Sole was a great recommendation by a friend. The ambiance is lovely, nice looking sophisticated crowd - cool round bar...the seafood tower was definitely worth it! I'll be back next time I am in Dublin!

Good food. But for a restaurant with that name, it lacks soul. The interior and ambience is a poor imitation of the type of popular restaurant it aspires to be and it felt a bit like a factory. Probably good for a large group, but look elsewhere if you are dining with someone special.

Another fantastic night in Sole, food was fabulous. One of the best things about Sole restaurant is their staff, their attention to detail is outstanding, they make you feel so welcome and cannot do enough for you.

Overall, a nice experience. Great food and ambience. Only criticism is that we weren't informed we had to give our table back after 2 hours when seated - it was 3pm so not a typically busy time of day! We were informed with 10 minutes notice, rather than when we were first seated, so a bit of a shock. We were eventually moved to another table to finish our wine, but again being informed at the start would have been more considerate!

Lovely atmosphere and my wife and were made feel special from moment we entered. The service was attentive but discreet. We had the captains tower as an entree and it was beautifully served and absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the restaurant for that special night out.
