No delays with a Friday 7:00PM reservation - much appreciated. Requested table in quiet area and got one - so the frequently mentioned 'noisy atmosphere' didn't happen (and won't if you ask for a quiet table). Excellent appetizers, good entree portion sizes. Clam chowder had too much potato. Ora King salmon, clam strips and baked stuffed shrimp were excellent. Chocolate... More

Their creations and presentation was excellent. The quantity, freshness and taste was superb. This is a specialty restaurant that specializes in seafood and they have mastered the art. I recommend this establishment. The care of the staff is exceptional, as they informed us that 3 staff would be taking care of us and they exceeded their ability.

I visited this Seafood restaurant while visiting my daughter for a brief stay. She had heard it was a good seafood place and so we went. Despite our early 5:30 reservation (needed here), the place was nearly full and the bar area crowded. By the time we left, it was packed. My aim for the night was a simple one;... More

I've now been a repeat customer for 3 years. I only go on special occasions about 2-3 times per year. Over a 3 year period this place has been very consistent and awesome. Make reservations or you will wait hours to get seated if you get seated at all. They have everything here, great food, amazing service, and prices are... More

my husband and I had a Monday off and decided to go to The Sole for lunch. I started with the sautéed mussels and I am so glad I did. Cooked to perfection and the flavor was amazing. Cooked with butter and garlic it was not overpowering. For our entrees we had broiled haddock with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach,... More

Been here many times. Seafood is always fresh and delicious. Never disappointed. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling through Worcester. Very popular place. Worth the wait but recommend a reservation.

Terrific find. We were in town for the Holy Cross VS Yale hockey game and stopped in for dinner. Made an open table reservation which turned about to be wise. Busy place. Amazing friendly staff who truly want to please. Food was served hot and good despite how busy they were. Nice job team.

I went there with family when home for the holidays. We had the crab rangoons for an appetizer and they were delicious. I had the seafood sauté with shrimp scallops and lobster and it was perfect, not too much bread crumbs and well seasoned. The sweet potato mash was amazing. Clam chowder was a must since it's not the same... More
