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. And a bargain at $1.50 with our dinner. All were prepared well. Prices were reasonable. For our purpose (a quick, decent dinner) it hit the mark. The waiter was... More

My daughter and I visited LA. We were looking for somewhere to eat. Found this place. Because of the food and staff, we decided to come back a second night. The prices were reasonable.

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

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 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
