It is truly an amazing restaurant. The owner/chef really understands French Canadian cooking (I grew up in a French Canadian household). He and his staff are very friendly and are very good at approaching each table. The food was just so amazing too, it even impressed me that they take care of even the tiniest detail in regards to the food. It surprised me that even the vegetables were cooked to perfection (it wasn't undercooked or overcooked).
I originally went in there for the poutine, but I am definitely going to go back for the other dishes that we tired. I hope that the next time I go back, the the vibe is still going to be quaint, peaceful and slightly on the romantic side of dining.
The price of the food was a little bit expensive but well worth it for the service, ambiance and quality of food.

Went there for lunch with a friend,we got the poutine Christine to start ,god this is it, those cheese curds the Christine sauce the curds are soft so when you bite on it, there is a feeling there you want to know more about poutine you gotta go.Then I have the Brian Sandwich, sliced New York steak with peppercorn and Christine sauce and brie cheese it is excellent just divine If Christine and Brian are together they must be very happy my friend had the pumpkin ravioli she loves it.

We just moved here for UCLA .We came for brunch on Sunday I had the chicken and mushrooms omelet and my bf got the chichen crepe and we got also the poutine Christine I didn't have a clue what was a poutine oh Lord that sauce with the peppercorn and cognac and add those cheese curds and pomme frite it is to die for.There is something in that sauce that makes me want more and more.The crepe and the omelet were excellent the sauce was lite not too heavy .Our waiter told us that they also do the Steak Christine and the Brian Sandwich with the same sauce and it is one of their best seller .I wish could eat more but I can, I will be back.Thank you all of you at Soleil

After reading good reviews , we decided to go to Soleil. We called up up front to make sure we dont have to wait. We were told its a walk in and we should be ok. After arriving there, we were told that they are suddenly expecting a big group and the manager has directed the staff not entertain any more guest. We saw a couple of tables in patio and asked if we could sit there. We were asked how long we were planning to stay and the service will not be quick. We found it a little insulting and rude.
This little french restaurant instantly became one of my favorites. I went here for dinner, and as soon as I stepped inside, I was struck by the yellow walls, the deep blue with little night stars on the ceiling, and the overall sense of a romance. The pictures on the restaurant's website really do not do it justice! One of the appetizers we had was the cheese fondue, which was not a bowl of melted cheese as we expected, but instead a surprisingly delicious block of crusty-on-the-outside melted-on-the-inside cheese to spread over bread. I would definitely recommend it. I had the their duck (Canard a la Jeff ), and the blend of the sweet orange sauce and the flavorful duck were perfect. My other guest's guests got the Grilled Filet of Salmon and the Steak a la Christine, both of which they ate with delight. The only odd thing was that the side dishes that come with the entrees are either french fries or scalloped potatoes. The french fries were fine, but I would recommend the scalloped potatoes as you can get french fries anywhere. For dessert we had the Raspberry Creme Brulee, which had a very nice top crust smooth raspberry flavor. Our server was also very attentive and nice. The entrees are about $20 each, but well worth it.
I went here for my boyfriend and I's anniversary. It was really romantic. We loved how great the service was. Our server knew the menu so well. He had no problem recommending which appetizer to try and which entree is better than others. We tried escargot which was amazing there!!! My boyfriend absolutely loved his steak with peppercorn sauce. Definitely get the scalloped potatoes! The whole experience was really great and we will definitely return!

I recently discover this great french bistro offering amazing food for amazing prices! I was very impress with their escargots and their crepes. They have very good crepes for lunches and dinners. The crepe selection is even larger for brunches on weekends. They have a great chocolate crepe for dessert. It was simply delicious. The service is very good and the owner is very inviting. He makes you feel welcome each and every time. I am planning on trying the all you can eat mussels they serve every wednesdays. It's all you can eat with french fries for only 14.95$ a person. The dinning room sitting is very charming and very french.

I love anything French. From French kissing to French toast, I appreciate France's ability to make all things so passionate, aesthetically beautiful, and delicious. I came here this past Sunday and ordered the Eggs Benedict, which had poached eggs and Canadian Bacon with hollandaise sauce. It came with a side of fries and salad. I was surprised at how small the portions were compared to some other breakfast places but since I've officially started a new, healthier lifestyle which included eating smaller portions, I was fine with that. The prices are reasonable. Parking on Westwood is not fun.

We had a birthday celebration at Soleil, a group of about 10 people. Everything was great. The food was delicious, the waiters were all very nice, helpful, knew everything about the items on the menu, and accommodated food allergies and preferences. I highly recomend Soleil, and we will definitely be back.
