    Food and service was as expected. A bit put off that we were seated by the kitchen even though we had a reservation and there were plenty of tables still available at the time we arrived.

    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

    The food was delicious. The staff were friendly and professional. I love that they have a selection of non-alcoholic mocktail drinks at a restaurant known for a large wine menu not something I expected but I was happy about it as that's what I enjoy on a night out. We will be returning to hopefully enjoy the patio in the warmer weather.
