Great corner booth in the bar area. Very attentive staff. Delicious food. Wonderful bar menu. Outstanding value. Terrific experience.
All four of us had great meals, haddock with lobster was mine as part of Worcester table special. My son and his wife both wanted their meals prepared medium rare and they were NOT over cooked!! My wife's meal was plentiful enough so that she had take-out for the next day. One of my favorite establishments.
The Sole has always been one of our favorites. Unfortunately, we did not get to dine there for my birthday as planned. A few hours before the reservation time, the restaurant called to let us know they had to cancel all reservations for the evening due to a widespread power outage in the area. What a bummer! Looking forward to getting back soon.
Hi! I rated the restaurant on my past experiences which is always good. However, this time around Sole Proprietor ended up cancelling my birthday dinner due to a power outage in the area. I know the restaurant has no control over an outage. However, they didn't offer to ask if I wanted to rebook my reservation or did they offer me anything for the inconvenience. It's upsetting to get a phone call like that especially for a special occasion such as a birthday!!! Then rushing on a Saturday night at 6pm to find another reservation to book my party.... basically impossible. I felt like it could have been handled better. It left me feel like I didn't matter.
Delicious meals , stuffed sole and stuffed shrimp. Goat cheese app was spectacular. Terrific service. The parking wasn't even bad this time.
Attentive staff and very good food. Enjoyed the experience.
Incredible experience! First time to this restaurant. Traveling for a funeral and went here on a date. The food & service are A-MAZING! If you want the best seafood in Worcester, look no further! I wish this restaurant was close to me. I would be a regular!
As always this restaurant lives up to its reputation as being the best seafood restaurant in the local area including Boston. Legal Seafood could learn from the Sole. The selection of Oysters was excellent and they were fresh and tasty. All selected seafood entrees and everyone raved about their food. The staff were courteous and did not rush you and completed the meal with a candle in the desert for the birthday occasion. Truly an excellent choice for a celebration.
Everything was wonderful. Great food - great service !! We were celebrating our anniversary and were seated in a small room off the bar area.... just perfect!
Not that impressed with the Sole Proprietor. The only reason I didn't give a lower rating was the fact that we went on a Sunday and utilized the "Priced-Fixed Sunday" Menu, which is a 3 course meal for $25. If I had spent the $25-40 a plate, I would not have been satisfied with the meal at all.
Crab cakes were okay, not great. Clam chowder was also underwhelming. Scallops Newburg had a good sauce, but once again, nothing to write home about. My Ultimate Margarita for $12 was a big disappointment.
Service was fine. She was attentive and food came out quickly(almost too quickly).
I like that there was a parking lot, as parking in Worcester can be a bit hard to find. Ambiance was also very nice and was a nice date spot.
I would not recommend going here and to save your money. I should have listened to the other reviewers.
Great Place! Our new favorite restaurant. We are never disappointed. All of us have our favorite dishes and desserts.
We dine at Sole Proprietor about 6 time a year for the last 4 years and they never disappointed in any capacity. They are a special breed
Everything was outstanding. My wife and I managed to unload the children for the evening. We drove 45 minutes and had a reservation. All of the staff were friendly. We were seated within 5 minutes of checking in. One of the managers came to our section three times to adjust the blinds due to the setting sun being in my wife's eyes. We had a pair of servers that were extremely knowledgeable about the items on the menu and incredibly responsive. The food was wonderful and the restaurant buzzing with activity but not noisy.
We drive up from Storrs, Ct to rendezvous with friends and family from central Ma.
It is our only choice given the atmosphere an exceptional food, especially seafood.
The food was good but not as good as I remember. The chilled squid salad was very good. The oysters were just OK. I had the stuffed the sole and it was tasty when brought out and dry which was disappointing.
One of the BEST restaurants in town
Ask for a quiet table and reserve ahead!
Perfect evening enjoyed by all. Waiter was attentive and prompt service... Enough time between courses.
We have enjoyed the Sole many times in the past, and this visit was no exception. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. The service was as expected, excellent, and the server was very friendly. They had discontinued the lemon sorbet, which was very disappointing, but we opted for the blood orange, which was very good. I would definitively recommend this place to friends and relatives.
There were three in our party. We were celebrating two birthdays with two baked stuffed 2 lb lobster dinners. The other member of our party had trout. All three meals were excellent as was the service. Everything arrived hot and cooked perfectly. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. We can't wait to eat here again.
