We ordered chowder and swuif tempura as starters, and fish pie, seabass for mains, and we loved it! Excellent flavours, the freshest fish you could have in inner Dublin. Excellent customer service, present but not overwhelming. Great ambiance in the restaurant too! Would go back to try the fish tower! Highly recommend it!

Great food and service, very professional. Problem is that their website does not allow you to reject cookies - not having the ability to do so in this privacy minded age is just wrong and feels slightly abusive.

We had a lovely meal....great service, lovely environment and delicious food. The Tower entrée for two gave a good variety of hot and cold seafood. Sole isn't a cheap night out, but is really worth it for a special occasion. This is our 4th visit.

One of our favorite restaurants in Dublin. The food and service is superb. One of our party has Celiac disease, and the waitstaff were very conscientious about it. There were plenty of gluten-free options.

Took us 25 mins to get a drink after ordering 3 times. Offered us Oysters as complimentary gesture but neither of us like them. Knocked a few drinks off bill at end. Rigid set menu is pricey considering sides are extra and all of what we wanted ie lobster was extra €15pp. Working out at €80pp. Nevertheless food was amazing and atmosphere was brilliant! Will be back!👍

A lovely family meal enjoyed by all. Seafood was excellent and the service was top notch, especially on such a busy evening and with covid restrictions. This is one of the best places to eat (especially seafood) in Dublin.

This was my first time and we both really enjoyed our experience. The menu was excellent and good choices to choose from. The staff were excellent and their attention to detail was very good. All seemed very interested in the costumer. The restaurant has a very good atmosphere and the counter sitting is some very pleasing.
We were not rushed and the social distancing is well managed.

The team were lovely, and was the highlight of the night. We were offered the Christmas menu which felt a little limited and the food was ok, lacked seasoning on the goose breast and steak was a little tough. We both had scallops to start, again the seasoning was lacking and the mushrooms overpowered the dish. Deserts were nice.

First time to go to SOLE . We were apprehensive to find out if distance between tables were arranged per government guidance . They were so we were happy . They also checked our vaccine certs so we were pleased .
We saw prawn cocktail on the lunch menu and were delighted they were DUBLIN BAY PRAWNS. The halibut as main course was excellent . Wine listing ( like all restaurants is not cheap ) but the Christmas menu at €45 each was great value . We will be back !!

We had a wonderful lunch here on the Christmas set menu. The food was gorgeous. We had Scallops and prawn cocktail to start and both had Dover Sole for main ( there was a supplement for this) The Dover sole was cooked to perfection and a sizable whole sole.
All the staff we really friendly and attentive and our server Jonata was excellent.
We had been at the restaurant around the same time last year on a Christmas day out and were delighted to come back again. We had a really enjoyable meal and drinks. The décor is beautiful too, a real treat to eat out there.

The waiter was not v friendly when we asked him to move cause of draught. Our mains were v delayed that we didn’t have time for dessert but we still had to pay the expensive set menu price of 45 euros. I would have thought as it took them so long to bring out our mains during a lunch seating they would have made a gesture on the bill. The maitre d asked us how we were getting on. When we said our mains took too long to come out. He just said sorry and walked on. I really like sole so was v disappointed today and would think twice about going back

I brought my brother here for dinner as he's a big fish fan and we weren't disappointed. I had made a mistake on our booking and they couldn't have been nicer sorting it out for me. The food, service, venue are all wonderful - try it if you haven't been already - there's steak and veg options also if you're not into fish!

Thanks for having us Sole and we wish you all the best in 2022.

Sole is wonderful - a really elegant but relaxed environment with delicious fresh fish beautifully cooked taking centre stage however the meat and vegetarian dishes are by no means left in the shade. The staff are incredibly attentive and very friendly - and there's no shortage of them. The timing of our meal was perfect, not too long between courses but definitely not rushed either. It is a really good spot for a celebration dinner, lunch with friends, family gatherings and date nights.
