Sole is one of our all time favorite restaurants. It has fantastic food - everything on the menu is terrific - I love the halibut! The service is friendly and knowledgeable. The location on Elm Street in New Canaan can't be beat. And the prices are surprisingly low for the excellent quality of the cuisine, the beauty of the interior,... More

They are serious about food here, and serious about service. If you normally find yourself looking for someone to fill your water glass or fill your long-empty glass of wine, you won't find that here. They do the job very well and you will have trouble narrowing down your choice of great things to order. There's really nothing else you... More

My wife and I enjoyed our meal at Sole this past Saturday very much! We decided on this restaurant in New Canaan to try something different for our Saturday night date night. The drinks were good - not very alcoholic but elegantly presented. The meals were delicious and also nicely presented. My wife had the mushroom spinach ravioli and I... More

Had dinner with friends from high school on a reunion weekend. Three of us had an excellent dinner including lovely wine, terrific main course, and delicious desserts. The atmosphere was lively with every table taken. The service was excellent. We were able to converse and even had an unexpected guest with us for drinks before our meal.

.......... based on the location, the Trip Advisor reviews and the Certificate of Excellence. I was not disappointed. As most of the other reviewers say, it is a lovely restaurant with unusual Italian dishes (not the usual Southern dishes) and has quiet but attentive staff. Excellent! The price reflects the quality of food and service. (It is not overpriced.) JWL... More

We always enjoy Sole and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Food is very good, as is the ambiance for a local restaurant, but the noise level can be high which brings it from an excellent rating to very good. Prices are in line with what one would expect for the quality of the food.

This restaurant consistently sells out around the weekend and it's easy to see why. The food is always very good and the staff welcoming. Outstanding pizza for the kids; excellent halibut for me!

Had a nice visit to this lovely town. Great different and diverse choices on menu. Scallops were perfectly done in an interesting and tasty presentation. Portions decent. Others at the table had veal dish which was reported as very good. Had a taste of a friends halibut or haddock with spinach and it was again delicious and a different way... More

There is a reason why this great in town restaurant still has it going on after all these years.The food is delicious, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is terrific. The bar extents all around the kitchen which makes it enjoyable to watch the chefs in action. The pizza oven is great to seat next to on those cold... More
