I really liked the atmosphere in this restaurant. It has a romantic and relax vibe. I had the duck. It was delicious but not the best I have ever had.

We had our Valentine's day meal at Sole this year. They offered a set menu with many delectable choices. The cost was $52 per person which included an app, main and desert. The appetizers were pretty good but it seemed almost like the ricotta balls had been reheated as they didn't taste as good as we thought they might. Next... More

Went for Sunday brunch. Not easy to find but well worth the look. Amazing decor in old office/warehouse. Excellent service, great menu with loads of choices. We all had different menu items with everyone enjoying theirs.

We had a group of approximately 20 people enjoy a Christmas dinner. We really enjoyed our room and the food was delicious. Best of all was the service - all of our wait staff were attentive - but not overbearing. A very enjoyable evening.

I decided to dine at Sole on Saturday the 14th of January. Suffice it to say I was very disappointed with my meal. I ordered from the special dinner menu. An artichoke app., fish for the main, and one of each dessert to share with my guest. The appetizer was fantastic, beautiful presentation. The main dish was beyond horrible. The... More

A return after having been away for a while reminded why we took that break. What a disappointing experience! Almost empty at a prime dinner time during the pre-holiday festive season should have been a clue. Ordering from the "holiday special" menu, the pork tenderloin was three different temperatures ranging from luke-warm to room temperature to cold - reheated for... More

We were a large group sitting at a long table, so the ambiance could have been a bit better, but that's what you get when 22 people sit down to a Christmas dinner. My French Onion Soup was great and followed up by a surf'n'turf done to perfection. My husband also enjoyed his steak.

I wanted to try the pizza in the menu thinking that it would be amazing for the kind of restaurant. I decided to go with the Quattro Stagione. Honestly I thought I was eating pizza at Chuck Cheese. The crust was hard, tons of cheese, and a weird presentation of olives artichokes and tomatoes. Not impressed at all. Heavy and... More

We were greeted warmly, our coats taken, and we were led to a table. Our server was gracious, professional and efficient. The meal, special of the day, was beautifully presented, delicious and just the right amount. We were not rushed; we enjoyed the food and our conversation. All in all, it was a lovely experience.

Thank Madeline R
