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. Even when choosing off of the menu, the prices are very good. We went back again for happy hour and had such a great poutine dish with steak, mushrooms... read 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

Sunday brunch was excellent, great selection of breakfast and lunch options in addition to an all you can drink champagne option for $10. Reasonably priced food. Service was excellent, friendly and professional.

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!

Took my mother and a friend to dinner to celebrate my mother's birthday. An altogether wonderful experience. The restaurant is comfortable and quiet - perfect for a nice conversation over wine and great food, and the service was attentive but not intrusive. We started with a very reasonably priced Cote du Rhone Villages that was very nice. We shared a... More

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.

An enjoyable meal. Duck for me. Lamb chops for my wife. Steak frites for my daughter. Had an eggplant appetizer special, which we enjoyed and the soup special, which was good.

I had heard that Soleil makes super French fry dishes and I was looking forward to having one. However, we had to share some plain ones because we were in the dining room and the fry menu is in the bar. I had a pasta dish and the rest of our party of four had a variety of meat entrees.... More

Apologies for the 'lipstick'. We missed one, for sure. Thanks for understanding. Sometimes the lip stick just does not come off in the dishwasher and our QC slipped - no excuse. Thanks for the review, in spite of our lapse. Happy to have 4 stars, but always strive for 5... Next time in be sure and say hello. Merci, Luc. More
