Great food and service

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.... read 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.

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 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.
