So good I went twice in one day!

This French Canadian restaurant was a little connection to home for me. The lunch specials seemed like such a reasonable price for what you get.

I have eaten here several times when in Los Angeles. The location in Westwood is easy to locate so do not be afraid to try. The food is fabulous and the wait staff wonderful. No matter what you select, you will be very pleased. Trust me.

We tried Soleil because of the bottomless mimosas. $15 with a 2 hour limit is a pretty good deal! The mimosas were excellent. We ordered crepes, French toast, and crab Benedict. All of our meals were phenomenal and the service was top notch. Our glasses never got more than half empty and our server did everything he could to make... More

Discovered this restaurant by accident while in LA. Went on the "Petit Soleil" side of the restaurant to have poutine. It did not disappoint. We tried three different kinds and I fell in love with the Filet mignon one. What a delight! Our waitress (a Quebec native) was so nice and made us feel at home. Excellent food at a... More

Our family of four was hungry for a nice dinner to signal the end of our first trip to LA. We found this gem on the Internet, as it was close to our hotel. What a great discovery. The food reminded me of dishes that I ate in Paris. Portions were generous, and the service was friendly and efficient. Dessert... More

We usually go to Soleil for Sunday brunch when we visit our son and girlfriend. This visit we took them to dinner. The experience was the same ... perfectly wonderful.

What a delightful way to spend Bastille Day! Everything was wonderful! The house-made pâté and the cheese plate were perfect. The NY strip with peppercorn sauce was excellent. Excellent drink and wine menu. Very nice beer list. Dining al fresco made a nice evening even better. Our server Suzanne took our evening to perfection! Highly highly recommend!

As someone who eats very few carbohydrates, the fish and salads are only OK. The pastas and other such items may be better. The service is good and the room is light and bright.
