My wife and I were visiting a friend who lives in Westwood. The three of us had dinner here. I had a steak, my wife had the pumpkin ravioli, and our friend had the duck. The service was top notch, the food was excellent (perfectly cooked vegetables and medium-rare steak), the wine list was well chosen, and the prices were... More

My sister and I happened upon this place on our last night in town. It's a sweet, warm place where we had a lovely meal. We started with salads. I close the bib lettuce salad with walnuts and vinaigrette. The presentation was amazing - it was the whole head of lettuce arranged on the plate, sprinkled with walnuts and the... More

Not a bad place for the price. Very low-key, not crowded at all for a Monday night. Service was extremely attentive. Prices were very reasonable and the menu was varied enough to please the three of us. The food overall was okay - not great and not horrible. Appetizers consisted of escargot which were garlicky and properly done. The sauteed... More

This is one of the best restaurants in LA hidden among store fronts on Westwood Blvd. The service and the food was top notch. The escargot was perfect! The bread was warm and wonderful and the calve's liver was delicious! We will be back and we will be telling our friends as well!!!

Enjoyed a quiet lunch with a longtime friend at Soleil Westwood, a few blocks south of Wilshire, away from the hustle and bustle of UCLA. Plenty of delicious options on the menu -- competent, friendly service. In all, a great oasis. I will return.

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.
