We walked quite a way from our hotel to enjoy a restaurant that specialized in seafood and we were not disappointed. The food, wine, atmosphere and staff were all commendable. Our Australian waitress was particularly helpful and we thought it a well oiled operation and didn't feel rushed at anytime although we had to vacate our table at a certain... More

Food was really nice, and served pretty quick after ordering. Menu was small but I personally like that.The soul music in background just added to the chilled out atmosphere and the staff were nice too. Would go back!!

We went here on the living social deal Sole recently promoted, offering two seafood dishes and a bottle of prosecco for £12. When we arrived, we were greeted by a really pleasant waiter, who was attentive throughout. We loved the restaurant itself - it was stylish and comfortable, with low-level soul music playing. The prosecco, offered as part of their... More

We purchased the Living Social deal to try this place out, as we love eating out and I love fresh seafood. I was very impressed with the service and with how nice the food was. The only thing is that the portions could be bigger, or the dishes cheaper, we had 7 dishes between the 2 of us (to be... More

I love seafood and was excited when I heard Sole had opened in Manchester, my fiancé booked for my Birthday but it was quite disappointing. The food was very well cooked and tasty but, for the cost we were very underwhelmed by the size of our portions. Starter - 1 Scollop and a cube of pork belly £9.50!! We both... More

To anyone who purchased the living social deal for this restaurant- be aware that you have actually bought two bad starters and a cheap bottle of fizz! Started the experience with a non-existant lunch menu. On their website they advertise an affordable three course lunch/early evening menu which they no longer serve. We were looking forward to the fish pie... More

We arrived early for our table and decided to have a drink in the bar downstairs. Bar staff were very helpful and suggested an alternative spirit as they had only half a measure of our choice. We then went upstairs and sat at our table and asked for the drinks account to be transferred to our restaurant bill. Order was... More

We visited on a Saturday lunch time. Restaurant was quiet but we were early. The service was a delight attentive without being intrusive. The food was superb particularly the razor clams with sorrel and the fish pie. We will certainly be back.
