Great service and great food

Nothing bad to report here. Great service, great atmosphere, great food, great menu, and great bar. Some of the best seafood that you can have is available here. And for dessert, try some of the special cocktails. A little pricey, but what you expect from a solid seafood restaurant.

My husband and I had dinner here yesterday night with two other couples. First of, the place was absolutely packed on a Wednesday night. Luckily we got in right before the rush at 6pm and got a table without waiting. We skipped the starters and went straight for entrees. I personally tried the tuna steak Barcelona and haddock new-burg, both... More

I recently came in for a solo dinner after a long flight. Since I have eaten here several times I thought I would come in for their great fish. Well, it was on a Wednesday night, early evening and the place was packed, more like a Satuday. After a short wait at the bar I was seated at a booth.... More

I recently had dinner at the Sole. I had asked for a quiet table. When I arrived my party was seated at a table in the middle of the floor. The location was certainly not condusive to conversation. When reviewing the wine & food menu I was disappointed by the pricing. And in fact once the food arrived (passed on... More

If you're looking for sea food, you can't go wrong with the Sole. Good Sushi, but the fish dinners are really why I go there. On top of the amazing food, the drinks are creative and tasty. The place is a bit pricey, but totally worth the cost. If you're looking for a night out with your significant other, you... More

Would be 5 stars based on the food, which is always delicious. The noise level is deafening, however. When I go out I like to have conversation, and this place makes it challenging. Therefore, if going, try to go for an early lunch. Dollar value is better then anyway.

We had dinner for lunch here this past Saturday afternoon. We were seated right away in a nice dining room. The first thing we had to do was adjust the table as one side was so tight I could barely get in. The staff should do that before the customer sits down. We were then greeted by a too friendly...

My boyfriend took me there for Valentine's Day. We got there at 2:30pm and had to wait 30 minutes. Not complaining. Just shows you that the place was hopping at 2:30 in the afternoon. We had the smoked seafood plate for an appetizer and that was fantastic. Then I had the Ora King Salmon Oscar. That is the best salmon... More
