This casual restaurant offers a wide variety of food. Because the tables are close together, it can become quite noisy. We enjoyed wine with our entrees of chicken, fish, and pasta. The salads and soups were tasty. The service was professional and friendly.

A warm and welcoming French ( Quebecois) restaurant on LA's West side., The menu offers a wide variety of French and international dishes at both lunch and dinner. The service is excellent, there's a full bar, a wide choice of wines, valet parking and French-Canadian owner Luc to make sure you enjoy your visit and, like us, come back often.

Soleil is unique in its quebecqois menu. The food is excellent, service attentive and in nice weather you can sit outside (and pretend you're in Paris)

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.

Soleil Westwood, a fixture of the neighborhood for over 10 years, sits proudly on the corner of Westwood Boulevard and Wilkins Avenue. Although it’s known primarily for its French cuisine, its roots are from Quebec. Executive Chef and Owner, Luc Alarie grew up in Val-d’Or before moving to Montreal to study at the Institute of Tourism and Hotels. Arriving in Los Angeles over 22 years ago, he fell in love with the city. Having long worked as a waiter and manager at various places in the city, he decided to open his own restaurant, Soleil Westwood.Whether stopping in for a quick lunch during the week, enjoying a relaxing leisurely brunch on the weekend, or spending time over dinner with family or friends, Soleil offers something for everyones’ taste. Choose from a various array of dishes featured on the menu as well as the Chef’s daily specials. Plus, the wine menu and beers of the world selection will aim to please. We look forward to seeing you soon at Soleil Westwood.
