Welcome Back Protocol

The team at SOLE have made the difficult decision to close for the duration of the Dublin lockdown. While we appreciate the trialling of the pedestrianisation of the city, and we love our outdoor terrace, we are restricted by the good old Irish weather, which we all know is so unpredictable, and our temporary outdoor structure would not be suitable for outdoor dining if we experience any heavy rain or wind. We can not express our gratitude enough for all our amazing customers, who’ve supported us over the weekend, and of course our incredible SOLE team. We plan on reopening on 10th October in line with the current government guidelines but, we will let you all know if anything changes. In the meantime, stay safe and look after each other. Our sister restaurant, FIRE Steakhouse & Bar has extended its opening hours to accommodate as many guests as possible on their outdoor heated terrace overlooking The Lord Mayor’s Garden.

Please contact FIRE on 01 67 67 200 to make a booking enquiry or log on to firesteakhouse.ie

Welcome Back

As part of our Welcome Back Protocol, The SOLE Team have unveiled a suite of unobtrusive measures to help protect customers and colleagues as part of a collective global goal to defeat Covid-19…….

We have reduced our table lay-out and customers seating by 40% and a minimum of 1-meter distance, to ensure a more comfortable dining experience for you while offering safe distance dining between other guests.

At SOLE we take great pride in our existing cleaning, safety and hygiene standards, we, however, recognise that customer confidence and trust in our hospitality experiences are more important now than ever, we have re-visited all our procedures and have added a number of new and important protocols:

  • SOLE will engage dedicated and highly trained staff to constantly clean surfaces and touchpoints with increased frequency and will have a dedicated cleaning team on duty daily.
  • Hand hygiene remains extremely important. Safe and easy-to-use hand sanitiser stations will be located on arrival and throughout the restaurant for your convenience.
  • Upon arrival at your table, a hot disposable sanitising hand towel will be presented as part of your SOLE hospitality experience.
  • At all times, a lead team representative will be on duty to make sure protocols are strictly adhered to at both the front and back of the house to ensure the safety and wellbeing of colleagues and guests.
  • All staff will be wearing face shields/visors and we kindly remind all guests that government regulations do also require all guests to wear masks on entry to the restaurant and while moving around. Masks can be removed while you are seated at your table.

Additional Covid-19 measures that SOLE  is introducing as part of our Welcome Back Protocols:

  • In line with current government guidelines, table sizes will be restricted to parties of 6 guests.
  • Dedicated experienced hosts will be available to manage guest flows on arrival and departure.
  • To play our collective part in defeating Covid-19, one guest from all parties, including walk-in’s, will be required to provide a contact number and email address.
  • Cash-free methods of payments including Revolut and Apple pay are available and encouraged

In consultation with our amazing team of hospitality professionals, we have introduced the following new measures for our team;

  • Daily Temperature and Health checks.
  • Separate Staff entry and exit point.
  • A new staff bicycle parking area.
  • Staggered start and finish times to avoid high traffic within staff changing areas
  • All staff will be wearing protective face shields.
  • New Kitchen traffic flows and procedures to protect our team and guests.
  • Ongoing internal and external training on new and updated policies and protocols
  • Flexible rosters where possible to support team members with children at home during schools and childcare closures

SOLE Seafood & Grill is committed to providing the safest environment possible, whilst maintaining your hospitality experience at the forefront of everything we do.

Strategically staggered reservations are now opened on-line for bookings by email, Reservations@SOLE.ie  or by phone 01 544 23 00
