  • "The food is consistently fabulous! While waiting at the bar for my friends, I noted there were regulars who the staff catered to...not great for a newcomer. That being said, I will continue coming for the food."

  • "Their PreFixe was very nice for $25.00 pp Food was very good- reception desk very friendly. However, we had a coupon from our last visit and they would not recognize it since some not all of the 12 guests were taking advantage of the Pre Fixe. What good is a coupon.?..."

  • "We were so looking forward to eating here as we have enjoyed it very much in the past. Unfortunately our last two experiences have been very disappointing. Our dinner this past time had absolutely no flavor. Two of us got the shrimp lemoncello and it was so bland, there was absolutely no flavor. There were six of us and the consensus was that the food was just ok and not with coming back. "

  • "Once again our dining experience was excellent. We have never had a bad experience at Sole. Thanks!!!!!!"

  • "Each time we dine here it is a memorable experience. Every staff member has an amazing "attitude" and you are treated with total respect. This is one of our favorite places to relax and enjoy amazing food. Highly recommended to all."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "We finally ate at the restaurant after it was recommended by our friends a number of years ago. We were disappointed with the food. The salad I ordered was very dry and should of had more dressing. I ordered balsamic chicken which was just OK - I have had the same dish at other Italian restaurants and it was much better - and boneless. My wife ordered Saint Peters fish served on mashed potatoes. The fish was very good but the mashed potatoes were extremely salty. "

  • "This was our first time there on the advice of a neighbor. It was great. The food was good and plenty of it, some regular Italian stand by items and some inventive items. Something for everyone. A good wine list and fairly priced. We will be back."

  • "Excellent food, local flavor,perfect ambiance,completely fulfilled for flavor"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Sole is always our first choice to celebrate special occasions with friends. The menu is varied just enough to satisfy each of us. However, we usually end up getting something from the list of daily specials. We always order an appetizer of calamari, crisp and light and just enough to hold us until the entrees arrive. Desserts are usually interesting and satisfying. Presentation is also a plus, as is the service. My birthday is next. Can't wait!"

  • "Don’t bother to put in any special requests they don’t even bother look at your reservation on open table"

  • "Consistently terrific local boîte that's a no-brainer for a great meal at fairly moderate prices. Menu is outstanding across the board."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Have never been disappointed!! My favorite dish - Tuscan shrimp. Very generous with the size and amount of their shrimp!!!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "May be we hit it on a bad night, but the food is usually better. The main course was fine (actually very good specials) but the appetizers and the kid's meal were mediocre. Even the coke was too syrupy. Other times that we have been there the everything was fine. If this was the first time we ever went here I would probably not go back. On the other hand, I prefer a restaurant that is consistently good all around."

    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "The food was very good and perfect size portions. the waiter was attentive and checked with us on how the food was. water was refilled often. i haven't been to Sole in a long time and i was very pleasantly surprised. There was no wait. The nice thing is you can make a reservation on line so you don't need to wait."

  • "My swordfish was outstanding. My husband ordered the Linguine with shrimp and clams and loved it. We had the baked clams. The best clams we ever had. The prices were moderate. It truly was a steal. The staff was friendly, but the bus boys cleared our plates as soon as we put down our forks."

  • "food is fine not exceptional service is very good and attentive....noise level is ridiculous and you cannot hear the person next to you"

  • "Been eating here for about 10 years. A little noisy at time but the food makes up for that. Great food and great service."
    Dined on 9/14/2013
  • "This non-pretentious restaurant is a neighborhood standout that consistently offers excellent food. Watching regulars file through the doors you know that if you live in the area Sole is the place to eat. The wait staff are courteous and helpful. The decor is a bit dated but it doesn't seem to bother anyone. The portions are very generous. You will not leave hungry. I recommend making reservations because it is a popular feeding hole."

  • "Menu selection and presentation is a cut above what you would find on Nassau's counties south shore."
    Dined on 8/29/2013
  • "The menu is very varied and unique in preparation. The quality of the dinners is excellent."
    Dined on 8/27/2013
  • "The menu published online looked fit for the foodies that we are but when we arrived there was very little to choose from. We waited 40 minutes for our appetizer and ended up asking the server to wrap our entrees to go after waiting another 40 minutes. Even with the minimum to choose from they were out of gnocchi and subbing penne pasta for my dish. The food we were given was clearly fresh but under seasoned."
    Dined on 8/26/2013
  • "My husband and I went out for a long awaited date night and this definitely was not the place for it. I knew the restaurant was small but that was an understatement. We were practically a table of 4 with the next party instead of a table of 2. The food was good and service was fine but within 5 minutes of ordering our dinners were in front of us. We were in and out in 45 minutes. Being so tight and small you didn't feel comfortable sitting and chatting. Not very inviting."
    Dined on 8/25/2013
  • "The food was just ok. Disappointed that almost all of the apps were seafood oriented and also disappointed that there was not a selection of soups. The chicken parm was too thick and the chicken parm stuffed ravioli was just like eating cheese ravioli. Could not taste any chicken. Although we were a little disappointed, our previous visit was wonderful. Yes we will go back and yes we will recommend the restaurant."

  • "The food never fails at Sole. There were 4 of us and we each had something different and the reaction was the same all around. Extreme satisfaction with everything that was served. Reservation was honored and restaurant was busy. Our server was delightful and offered suggestions. We never felt rushed or pressured. Definitely a place to return to."
