A girlfriend and I went for brunch this weekend and neither one of us were very impressed. Cute decor and great patio but felt like they forgot about us (had to ask for water, etc) which was odd bc it was not crowded. Had the quiche and the French onion soup. The soup was good the quiche was overcooked and... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your visit to Soleil recently. I apologize if you felt the service was not up to you standards. Regarding the water. Because of the drought, we only serve water to customers who request water. If my staff did not explain that to you and your guest, then it was our error. We often... More

Dinner, large menu with a variety of choices ( see website), I had a very good beef stroganoff, my son a good steak. Coffee good, service attentive. Worth a stop.

I want to like this restaurant but it has been very inconsistent. One time the onion soup was watered down broth with no flavor. Nothing is bad nor is anything great.

We have been several times with my 87 and 90 year old parents, and the wait staff treat them extremely well. The food is excellent every time we have been--steaks, salmon, salads, escargot, desserts--always well done, even the vegetables. Great wines, and on balance not overpriced. A really nice restaurant.

My family and I have now been to Soleil Westwood for brunch, lunch, and dinner ... and we have never been disappointed ... in anything! It is simply a beautiful, unassuming, affordable yet impeccable French restaurant. Our most recent visit was Christmas Day Lunch, and it was perfect! While my companions opted for sandwiches, I chose the Salade Quebec and... More

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.
