Description: Cafe Sole has captured the hearts and palates of locals and visitors lucky enough to discover this culinary gem off the beaten path. By combining his French mastery of sauces with fresh locally caught seafood, John has created a menu unlike any on the island, where every dish is bursting with indescribable flavors. Mutton snapper in pesto and champagne, yellowtail in a beurre blanc of lobster or a rare hog snapper with red pepper zabaglione top a list of nightly specials. As for the classics, the Duck a L'Orange, Rack of Lamb with herb de Province and Lobster Bouillaise are as authentic as you will find this side of Paris. Chef Correa combines the best of both of his worlds, European and Caribbean to win the People's Choice and Best Entree awards at a recent Master Chefs Classic

I think almost every single time my husband and I visit Key West, we always make sure we have dinner here. We love the atmosphere and of course the food. We prefer to sit in the outside screened in area as opposed to inside.

They have a nice wine selection if you are looking for it just by the glass. Appetizers are delicious especially the beef carpaccio which my husband always orders. I had the caesar salad during our most recent visit. It was refreshing with the right amount of dressing. For dinner we both once again had the hogfish snapper which was served to us piping hot - which we really appreciate. We shared the key lime pie for dessert which was extremely tasty and not too filling. Our server was a delight and very attentive.

Dining at Cafe Sole is always a must for us whenever we are in Key West. It may be off the main drag, but that's why we like it so much. If you are looking for a quiet dining experience for the "real feel" of Key West, stop by Cafe Sole and be sure to order the hogfish snapper.

Café Sole has a vegetarian friendly menu. It's nice not only to have the type of food that you like to eat, but the kicker is to have it prepared perfectly. That's what is done at Café Sole. My wife is a vegetarian and I am a Pescetarian . The yellow snapper, lightly sauteed will melt in your mouth. The server was attentive, polite and very informative. A great place to go to experience the Key West lifestyle.

Love the food here. Such a fantastic neighborhood restaurant tucked away off Duval. Best key lime pie with toasted marshmallow on top. Look forward to coming back time and time again. Hogfish is so fresh and delicious.

Great food - signature dish Hog Fish ( reef snapper) was excellent and I highly recommend it. Waiter was very knowledgeable and provided excellent service. The initial welcome at the door was a little 'frosty'.
All in all a very pleasant experience and would recommend a visit when in Key West.
