This restaurant is known for good food. I ordered broiled haddock and it was very soggy. Haddock is supposed to be flaky. It was terrible,seemed like they steamed it or something. It was wet and slurpy. The vegetable medley was soggy also like it had been reheated. It was a Sunday when they open at 4PM. The cole slaw was... More

Hospitality began at the door. Pleasant, efficient. Nice seating, good service and excellent food. Pleasingly casual, but not sloppy. Good value.

Great service and food. Been going there for several years and have always had great service. The variety of food is great as well. Crab Rangoon and the Goat Cheese are great apps. Just had the Flounder special which had a mix of seafood in it.

At her request, I took my oldest daughter to the Sole Proprietor in honor of her graduation from Clark University. Without doubt, this was one of the best meals I've ever had, and will be remembered for as long as I live. It was like one of those fantastic meals which Jose Lezama Lima takes pages and paragraphs to describe... More

Consistently good food. A bit pricy but that is the cost of good food that is consistent. Would recommend.

I have been to the sole a few times. Everyone tells me that was the place to go and I was just never impressed. The last time I went I got the steamed lobster and it was over cooked. I didn't know that could happen but it was to hard and tough. My father had the surf and turf and... More

I've only been to Worcester once before and had to come back to the Sole. Food was so good. Great service too. Use opentable for reservations. Can't say enough about it.

Nice restaurant, EXCELLENT staff, good menu selections. But the quality of their food just isn't what it should be. Dishes always look great, but for whatever reason my wife and I always find them a bit flavorless. Would take Legal’s over them ANY day of the week.
