Haven't been to the Sole on awhile and probably won't go back. The haddock with lobster Newburgh was flavorless. The lobster tasted very fishy. Very disappointing. My husband had the steak and lobster tail. The steak was ok, not very flavorful . The desserts were good, nothing special. Salads were fresh. Service was decent. Not an overly friendly restaurant .... More

We brought some family from Florida here for dinner. We all ordered some type of Oysters, fried, surf and turf and on the half shell. All were delicious as well as the clam chowder and our Tuna dinners. We really enjoy eating here and realized we should visit more often. Our company was impressed with the entire experience.

This restaurant is simply outstanding. The menu, primarily seafood, is filled with so many wonderful choices that I often take far too long to make up my mind! Service is superb. Meal cannot be topped anywhere in Central Massachusetts. The quality of the food is topnotch as is the service. My husband and I considered this the best seafood place... More

This has to be my favorite restaurant in Worcester MA. The staff is excellent and you usually have 2 servers. The atmosphere is fun and upbeat. The food is so fresh and my favorite sea food in all of Massachusetts. Its a little pricey but you wont mind at all once the food is served. Do not pass this place... More

The Sole proprietor is one of our favorite restaurants. Whenever we want to get a memorable meal this is where we head. Fish dishes are outstanding -- can't comment on others because fish is all I ever get here. Service is friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is very good. Worcester county's best seafood restaurant.

A very busy restaurant at lunchtime which is very much favoured by the locals. Menu is enormous with a real emphasis on seafood. Staff are friendly and attentive and the prices are very reasonable.

You can't go wrong here. The fish is excellent! It's not the cheapest price, but you get what you pay for. The wait staff is right on top of it too!

I used to go here a lot when I was in college and still make the trip! Their sushi is very good and the fish of the day is always fresh. I highly recommend getting a reservation as there is always a wait, especially for dinner. If you like to eat later, try going for their late night times as... More

Went back to the Sole for dinner. They try to update the menu and add unique dishes to attract return customers. We stuck with just appetizers. The fried clam were excellent, but fried onion rings wee a disappointment. Batter was too heavy, especially compared to the clams. The baked goat cheese with balsamic drizzled toast points was a big hit.... More
