Soleil's owner is French Canadian, but apart from the poutines (cheese-smothered dishes) the menu is basically bistro-fare French, wonderfully executed. You can have a snack, brunch, lunch or dinner and you will always come out content.You can even actually sit on a (protected) terrace and...More

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.

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)

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.
