From the ambiance to the service to the food, Sole Restaurant is always outstanding. I make a point of eating here every time I am in Waterloo.

Having been on a workshop from work, we visited this place for dinner. We had a side room on the back of the building. Being there with about 20+ people, it was extremely loud and hard to hear. Not the best situation to get to know better. Food wise, I think we had menu made for us. So I can... More
