Description: Soleil Westwood, a fixture of the neighborhood for over 10 years, sits proudly on the corner of Westwood Boulevard and Wilkins Avenue. Although it’s known primarily for its French cuisine, its roots are from Quebec. Executive Chef and Owner, Luc Alarie grew up in Val-d’Or before moving to Montreal to study at the Institute of Tourism and Hotels. Arriving in Los Angeles over 22 years ago, he fell in love with the city. Having long worked as a waiter and manager at various places in the city, he decided to open his own restaurant, Soleil Westwood.Whether stopping in for a quick lunch during the week, enjoying a relaxing leisurely brunch on the weekend, or spending time over dinner with family or friends, Soleil offers something for everyones’ taste. Choose from a various array of dishes featured on the menu as well as the Chef’s daily specials. Plus, the wine menu and beers of the world selection will aim to please. We look forward to seeing you soon at Soleil Westwood.

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

My wife and I have been coming here for special dinners for several years. Our last stop was following an afternoon movie at the Westside Pavilion. The food is always delicious and Luc and the staff are always friendly and gracious. My favorite foods are the Canard a la Jeff and the best crab cakes around LA Prices are very... More

I was on my way to check out a couple of Italian resturants across the street and happened to take a peek at Soleil's menu. The place just had a good vibe about it and the menu selections looked good. I asked to be seated outside but noted that the noise levels inside and outside were acceptable. I started my... More

The restaurant is cosy, and the staff really lovely and sympathetic. However, the food is not the best i had (considering i'm french, i know what french food is supposed to taste like). The pâté was too salty so i didn't eat it : they didn't make me pay for it, which i really appreciated. The Chicken raviolis were good,... More

This is a very charming French restaurant with a good variety of choices. It was very pleasant and casual, yet very vice. We would return.

It was a great fun! This is a great place to have a party or a quite dinner on the patio or inside. Everybody can be accommodated. They have a good variety menu and because we had a party of 11, we tried everything. Everything was delish! The atmosphere was very friendly as well.

Soleil Westwood is a welcome relief from the too-hip, overpriced cuisine of so many westside restaurants. There is an authenticity to the menu, ambiance, and service that is refreshing and satisfying. The Onion soup has a unique beefy taste complemented by the Gruyere cheese. The escargots are subdued (ie, not too garlicky). A wide range of bistro dishes and a... More

Cruising for a place for lunch. The flags and the name got me....a guess. And what a surprise...great specials...the fluffiest quiche ever with a flaky "melt in your mouth" crust...and the frites! A wonderful thinly sliced medium steak sandwich with luscious tomatoes and lettuce. An exquisite warm spinach salad. Great glass of CA cab and a beautiful espresso. Great ambiance... More

Took 23 people including 3 small children for a celebratory wedding rehearsal lunch at Soleil. We ordered a couple of their specialty French Fry Flights for appetizers. Wow, were they good! Then they served a fresh spinach salad with home-baked bread. We pre-arranged two choices for the main course to make it easier and faster for their kitchen, and they... More
