The Sole Proprietor
Great as AlwaysHave been to Sole many times. This time with a large graduation party. Everything was outstanding. From making the reservation for the large group, to the service, the food, the table set up. Well done.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AM50th Anniversary celebrationThe food was awesome the waitress were awesome as well.

The courses came out well spaced so we didn't feel rushed.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGem of the OceanGreat food, with one or two dishes a little out of the ordinary and a wonderful staff, who add just a little more to their duties than other restaurant staff. A place one always looks forward to visiting.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA really great experience.A really great experience. Food was great and our server Karen was too!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSoleWalked in and were seated immediately, food was great, we were not rushed. Great dining experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThe food is excellent. So fresh and tasty. Menu offers a great variety. Service is excellent. Wait time for food excellent. You will love it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll have the fishHaving a rich history in serving seafood, the Sole Proprietor, know what they are doing. Yet they don't let their menu go stale and this makes return visits worthwhile. Their new Gluten Free clam chowder is superior to many in the area, gluten or gluten free. The portions are appropriately sized (perhaps a little too big) and the service is what you expect to make the dining experience enjoyable and focused on your dinner conversation not the restaurant. The only negative comment would be towards the serving temperature of the grilled trout as it was obviously off the grill for 4-5 minutes before getting to our table, far too long for this type of fish.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DinnerWe had a lovely dinner with great service. One of our party was a vegan and waitress was very knowledgeable about choices for them. Wine great, food great, service great.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperior SeafoodThe Sole did not disappoint! Our party of four all agreed the food was outstanding. Started with oysters & a sushi roll for an app. Obviously fresh--a great start to the meal. The four entrees--Black & Blue Sword, Ora Salmon, Baked Stuffed Shrimp and Tuna Steak--were all beautifully plated and served hot. Absolutely delicious. Servers were well-trained and very good at their craft. We had a birthday girl with us, and the Sole hit a home run with a chocolate cake/vanilla ice cream combo that arrived with a lit candle and Happy Birthday written on the plate with icing. Nice touch....no embarrassing groups coming to the table, clapping & singing.
Well done!! The only negative is that the dining rooms can get noisy. Would definitely come back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent service and foodI took out-ot-town guests here for a business lunch and it was perfect. The menu had good selection to accommodate their non-meat eating diets and service was very attentive and allowed us to keep to our schedule. When I have such occasions, the Sole is always the first place to come to mind.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSat niteDinner was great.

I don't remember ever having a bad experience eating at the Sole! Thanks!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great exceptEverything was great except the noise level - hard to hold a conversation3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful seafood, casual placeOutstanding food, our favorite seafood place (and we're from a large city where there are many dining options). We had the Ora Salmon which was richly flavored and scallops glazed in maple syrup. Perfectly cooked with generous portions. Service is attentive and friendly. There was a special that was very well priced. The wine list is good. We love the Sole because the atmosphere is casual and friendly while the food is top notch, beautifully prepared and consistently delicious. Our only complaint ever is that because it is so good, it tends to be crowded and noisy. On this occasion, it was not as we had the last available reservation on Easter Sunday.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHad reservations for 5:30.Had reservations for 5:30. we were seated immediately upon arrival. Our waiters were excellent. Very attentive and accommodating. Husbands could not stop raving about the lobster bisque and the amount of lobster in it. Food was also excellent. would definitely go back again.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and great service.Wonderful food and great service. All our seafood dishes were fresh, fresh, fresh!

Our service from Chrissy and our other server (forget her name) was friendly and efficient and made it much more of an enjoyable experience. Only drawback was the tables were really close together where we were sitting but not a big deal. Really enjoyed the crab cake app and King Ora salmon was delicious. The wine list is really affordable, it's nice to see such a great restaurant with excellent wines under $40. Thank you Sole, we'll be back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for lunch followedGreat spot for lunch followed by an afternoon movie!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Sole Proprietor continuesThe Sole Proprietor continues to be one of the best restaurants in Worcester.
