“For all occassions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We have had anniversary dinners, birthday dinners and get together with friend dinners here.
They have always been great. Excellent food, great service and the decor is really wonderful.
Great wine list and very reasonably priced. One of our favourites in the KW area.

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Sole has great atmosphere at any time of the year (former Seagram's Distillery) and a terrific patio in the summer. Both the service efficiency and the food quality seems to have slipped a bit, but both are at least average and acceptable. It would be a stretch to refer to Sole as offering "fine dining" (self-described), but the food is better than average, selections offer variety, and the menu is tempting.

“Casually classy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

This wine bar/restaurant in the former Seagram's machine shop has reinvented the property - lots of distillery brass, wood, and atmosphere. The menu is innovative and the food fresh and good quality. A nice selection of wines by the glass and bottle.

Doesn't offer a comfortable place to lounge - although the patio, in the summer, is shady and attractive. So - although it positions it self as a "wine bar", the bar function is not great. But I go there for the food and atmosphere. One can see many business-types here - as well as CIGI, Perimeter, Blackberry, UW, WLU, but the atmosphere is especially attractive for couples.

“Excellent, food, service and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

I have been here several times, both with family and a boyfriend.
I was never disappointed, always great attentive staff, intimate atmosphere and delicious food.
The menu changes regularly with the season.

“Amazing Place, Great staff, Friendly Atmosphere !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Sole is a wonderful restaurant to go to for any occasion. The staff will take care of you for all of your needs and the kitchen staff will keep you coming back for more. The owner sure knows how to run an establishment of this magnitude. Go for dinner and you will definitely go back again and again.
