Second visit to the Sole Proprietor and again it was excellent! Very high quality fresh seafood and attentive service that doesn't rush you! Scallops were to die for!

We have gone to this restaurant many times and always walk away knowing we had an excellent meal. Food is carefully prepared and more than being pleasing to the eye, it is delicious. Great ingredients, skilled chefs and cordial waitstaff create a wonderful dining experience.

The seafood is fantastic..I've been there twice and each time I am impressed with their staff and their food. If you're looking for great seafood this is the place..my favorite is the haddock with lobster Newburgh sauce. The portions are perfect..not too much and not too little.

Love going to the Sole for lunch with friends ... the menu is good and the food is excellent. But sometimes I can hardly hear my luncheon companion because of the poor quality acoustics in the restaurant. If it weren't for the noisy environment, I would give the restaurant 5 stars!

I've lived here 1 month and I've gone twice to this place. The atmosphere is nice enough for a date or special occasion but not stuffy or off putting. Everyone was comfortable there and my party of 6 were all thrilled with their food. From appetizers to dessert everything was delicious.

The seafood here is fresh, prepared in a variety of unique and flavorful combinations, with nice side dishes. Service was also very good.

This is our go-to place when we need a seafood fix. Although it can be loud on Fridays and you probably need a reservation they have the freshest fish in Central Massachusetts. I normally pick the swordfish and my husband has either lobster or crab legs.

The service impeccable, the food outstanding and the overall ambiance was spot on. Salmon cooked to perfection, mixed grill done exactly as it should be and sole was fabulous. Been here for ages but hasn't lost its appeal. Will return in a heart beat, Jim and Kate were the wait staff pros.

Thank LeonardoG408
