Cafe Sole - Key West
Great experienceLoved the house specialty. It was all I remembered as we have been four or five times.
The only area of opportunity is the coffee. I found it lacking a full body tast
It should have been a little stronger and freshly brewed.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food; fantastic service!Don't miss this place when in Key West. Three of us dined there recently and we all had something different for appetizers and dinner. Each was superb!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceCelebrated my birthday there May 2013. I was intrigued by the specialty, Hogfish with a cream sauce...wow....so good....buttery flavor melting in my mouth, delicious. The wine recommended by Michael our waiter was superb. I will dine here again next trip to Key West, for sure. The lima beans and mashed potatoes accompanying the fish was also very tasty. You wont be disappointed if you trybthis hidden gem of a restaurant, off the beaten path, quiet, and away from the noise of Duval Street.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNot to be missedThis has to be one of the best on Key West!

Food was outstanding, service was very good and attentive. We have had good meals througout the vacation but some items were hit and miss. Not here! Everything was excellent and although in the upper price range on the Island, the quality and consistency beat other upscale cafes around. We will recomend and be back. Steve Milwaukee4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe Sole is one of our favoriteCafe Sole is one of our favorite dining spots- a stand out in an area filled with great places to eat. The combination of small plates and entrees assures that all will find the right meal for their appetite and tastes. I especially recommend the seafood risotto and the hogfish entree4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but the serverGreat food but the server was slow to refil drinks and re pour wine.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in key westFavorite restaurant in Key West. Not cheap but worth it. Hog fish is to die for. Don't miss the key lime pie with marshmallow topping.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding restaurantOutstanding restaurant Had the blacken grouper.

We had the filet and was great along with with the vegatables.
Kelsey was knowledge and her server was also very professional4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Hogfish EverCafe Sole is truly one of the best restaurants in Key West. The wait staff is very friendly while remaining professional.
Their hogfish entree is probably the best fish I have eaten, just amazing. If you have never had hogfish it is a must. I spear them myself so I am qute familiar with these fish. The prepartion at Cafe Sole is quite special. And on top of that the piece of fish is enormous.
We ordered 4 appetizers- Escargot, Ostrich medalions, conch ceviche and a red pepper soup. All were very good but the ostrich and the conch stood out as my favorites.
If you go to Key West, get off Duval Street, take a walk through Old Town and head to Cafe Sole for a dinner you will not soon forge4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA do not miss location forA do not miss location for a quite lunch with excellent food, presentation, and service.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter Than Most in Key WestCertainly one of the better restaurants in Key West. But it is pricey and thus one is entitled to have high expectations. While the experience was very good, we just could not shake the feeling that the wow factor to which the prices entitled us just was not met. Having said that, two items were delicious. The conch carpaccio was excellent. Thin slivers of conch made it easy to eat and the full conch flavors were there to enjoy. The hogfish was perfectly prepared and tasty. Wines are very expensive. The choices by the glass were not great and my attempt to find a "bargain" ($32) bottle failed.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Neighborhood GemWe dine at Cafe Sole during every trip to KW but this was the 1st time we dined inside-we had what was almost a private booth and enjoyed the atmosphere immensely. Start with the Baked Artichoke with crabmeat-a true delight and cooked perfectly. I had the Lobster Bouillabaise-don't let the price scare you-it is worth it and one of the best dishes you will ever have-full of flavorful shrimp, lobster, mussels, scallops, grouper and veggies. My partner had the Hog Snapper-again, full of flavor and cooked to perfection. Dessert was Zabaglione-try this egg custard based dessert for a real treat. Cafe Sole is one of our favorite places in KW.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and atmosphere.Excellent food and atmosphere. Great French food.

The food was so good that it was memorable, as was the wine. We sat in a covered outdoor area that was again perfect.

Loved it!!!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable dining. HogfishVery enjoyable dining. Hogfish Sole dish is excellent. Be sure to ask price of the specials... They are often $40.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA memorable dining experienceHostess seated us right away, even as we arrived 15 min. early. Waiter was friendly, made a big hit when he suggested a Sancerre as a
good balance between one person's pinot gris tastes, another's sauvignon blanc tastes, and a third's desire to try something different.
Wine was great, and complemented dinner very well. Lobster bisque and portabello soup were taste treats, superbly done. So was the Hog Snapper (melted in our mouths!) and the tuna seared in pistachios. Waiter didn't rush us, but was attentive. We truly enjoyed a dining experience. Plenty of customers there, but it wasn't too noisy, and there was plenty of good service support. Would come back in a heartbeat, and leave room for dessert!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI would give this place moreI would give this place more than five stars if I could. The food was outstanding. The portobello soup is worthy of its reputation and everything else we had was delicious. The chef/owner came out and spoke with us. He is charming and fun and has a fascinating background and training which probably explains why the menu is so varied.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined with one other couple.We dined with one other couple.
