Dinner out with friends and excited based on previous reviews. Told wattress I was a "foodie" and asked for input between 2 dishes. Went with the tuna dish she recommended. On arrival it was an all white plate! Tuna, mashed potatoes, and cauliflower. Very poor plating and presentation. Even mentioned this to staff serving wine -- and he mentioned that... More

Largest assortment of seafood in worcester. The food is always on point here, fresh and tasty. Most all items are 4-5 star but the stuff shrimp are not done to my taste. Just a different way i guess. Remember to get the black bottom pie for desserti give it 5 stars.

We had a wonderful lunch at Sole Proprietor during restaurant week. We will definitely return as their menu is extensive, their food outstanding and their personnel friendly, efficient and helpful. They have a huge parking lot and are easy to get to. We're very glad we took the opportunity of restaurant week to check this restaurant out.

I don't eat seafood, but I come here often with friends that do. Their non seafood options are delicious, and the cost is reasonable.

We were seated immediately, which I'm sure was out of shear luck because the place was hopping at 12:15. We were greeted by friendly faces and well informed by our... More
