Cafe Sole - Key West Ratings and Reviews
Brought friends here for their first time. We all had the hogfish entree, which turned them into hogfish lovers. It was prepared perfectly, as usual. So moist and tender with absolutely no fishy taste, and I'm very picky about my fish! The sides were great too. I like how they serve 4 or 5 small sides so you get to taste several instead of just one or two. The server can make or break your dining experience, and ours was excellent, just enhancing the evening.
We went to Café Solé on the recommendation of a local resident. The Hogfish was recommended and it did not disappoint. The food was fresh, very well prepared, nicely inspired and the entire meal was delicious. The service was excellent and the waiters were very knowledgeable pleasant and attentive. I would highly recommend trying this place and is one of the very best I have tried in Key West.
One of my best friends said this is his favorite restaurant in KW.
I was here before and equally underwhelmed.
We booked well in advance and waited, albeit, a relatively short time for an inside table.
Unfortunately a group of loud and obnoxious party of 6 were next to us in a very confined area. The folks next to us mitigated the disruption by joining us in the calumniation of their diatribe.
The conch carpaccio lacked imagination. It could use a baby spinach or arugula base, some more conch and a little less citrus.
The hogfish special was small, well seasoned but left me hungry.
Lamb chops not a good choice and over cooked.
I don't think I will go back.
Overall value marginal
I am a "local" and took my best friend there to [barely, partially] thank her for taking care of my KW home while I was away for 10 weeks! Food is consistently and dependably good. My crab cake appetizer was an 8 (out of 10) and her "angels on horseback" a 9. My rack of lamb gets a 7 and her shrimp on pasta an 8. There are better in KW but more $$$ and Cafe' Sole' is always very acceptable.
Took advantage of their 50% off all food deal after9pm and able to try several appetizers that I would have never done at full price. Go do this while it lasts. Service was excellent. Food was exceptional. Regular prices for apps would have been steep . great atmosphere and service.
Cafe Sole is consistently a five star dining experience. The staff is impeccable along with a very tranquil, classy setting. Yet, it's all about the food which is the focal point and never ever do they disappoint. We had the surf and turf option with the kick off of Lobster week. The John Lennon table is not only adorable but a wonderfully cool spot to chill out at on those very hot Key West summer days. The early dining option of 50% off food just can not be matched anywhere on the island with the highest quality ingredients. Thanks for memorable dining experiences year after year, after year.
My Wife and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary at Cafe Sole on July 23rd. This was our second time at the restaurant. Every detail was perfect and the waiter, Jason, made the night extra special. Every course was superb, the wine selections were excellent! We will make Cafe Sole a must on all future visits to Key West!
