“Very Good Service and Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Our server Lena, did a great job all around. She recommended several dishes that were unusual and surprisingly good. The food came quickly and was well presented. The atmosphere in the restaurant was also perfect for a slow paced longer meal. Definitely much better than average "hotel restaurant" food and service, and on par with the other local upscale offerings. They also have a full bar and extensive wine and beer selection.

“Awful breakfast... and it was free...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

I usually don't go out of my way to write a bad review, but this place is terrible. Awful service, flavorless food, buffet items were barely kept warm. Again, the service was non existent! It was comical to see restaurant customers getting up from their table and knock on the kitchen door, to ask for some water, more coffee (in most cases everyone wanted their bill asap).

We got comped breakfast the night before because of a mishap in the bar, should we have known that the breakfast was going to be this bad, we would have gone somewhere else and paid for it.

“Soleil - What a hit !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we had an amazing experience !! We were greeted by Eric who made us feel so very welcome ! Our Server Leann was charming and very knowlegable about the menu . Without hovering she anticipated pur every need ! The ambience was romantic and not stuffy . The presentation of each course was amazing & artful ! Our appetizors were incredible - shrimp cocktail with a spicy sauce & delicious quacamole & the flat bread with vegetables & freshly melted cheese was delectable ! The tortilla soup and the chicken & rice soup was served hot & was very delicious ! Our Entrees were served hot & timed perfectly after our soup ! My husbands rib eye steak was cooked to his perfection - tender, moist , amazing taste! My short ribs melted in my mouth & I was tempted to lick the plate !! Our desert - a freshly baked warm brownie served with vanila bean ice cream on top was incredible ! ( My husband doesn't usually eat desert however he ate most of mine !! ) When we left Eric, once again greeted us & treated us like old friends ! I can't wait to visit Soleil again !
