Needed a quiet place to have lunch with clients and wanted a nice atmosphere. This was my first trip to Sole Propriator and I could not have been happier. Laurie took my reservation and seated me ahead of time. She greeted my clients by name and made sure the table was perfect. The food was excellent, the service friendly and... More

Plenty of parking in lot. Got in right away at 5:15 PM. It was already fairly crowded with large group eating at the bar. I ordered off the $24.99 price fixed Sunday menu, appetizer, salad and entree. Three jumbo shrimp cocktail, salmon (pan seared), parsnip mash, lardo. Salmon was generously sized and cooked perfectly! Flavor mixture was great with salmon.... More

My husband and I went to the Sole to celebrate a milestone. I started with a nice glass of Merlot. I had the salmon. It was cooked perfectly. The rice was one of the best I ever had and the vegetables were very fresh. My husband started with the clam chowder. He really enjoyed it. He has the pan seared... More

Excellent and extensive menu. The ambiance is O.K and gets very crowded but the food from appetizers to sushi to lobster is wonderful.

Being a vegetarian, I was aware my lunch choices would be limited at this well-known fish and seafood restaurant: the Caesar Salad, a Wild Beet & Gouda Salad and the Pear & Walnut Salad. I chose the pear & walnut salad which was small - even for a lunch entree. The size turned out to be appropriate because I did... More

The food at this seafood bistro is excellent and fresh. But, what really made the day was the excellent attentive and friendly service of our waitress, Nicole. I highly recommend both the restaurant and her.

This place is a very good place to dine. They specialize in seafood. They have good appetizers specials at happy hour. Parking can be a pain sometimes.

Friday evenings the place is packed with good people. Expensive, but you get what you pay for. The seafood is very good and the service is also very good.

This is one of the best sea food places in the area. The food is always great and it is easy to get to. If you are going for dinner, make sure you either get there early or make reservations. If you don't, you will wait for a while to get in. Lunch is easier to get in without waiting.

The room was very loud... do they not have private rooms for parties of 14?? Service was quick. Too quick? Lobster rolls were dry and uninteresting. Dinner rolls hot and delicious. Crab cakes were mostly filling and sadly Alaskan crab not blue crab. Asian slaw was inedible. Blacken swordfish had no flavor but the Brussel sprouts were good. The waitress... More
