Soleil Westwood Restaurant Review

: On a stretch of Westwood Boulevard often referred to as Little Tehran, with its abundance of Persian restaurants, lies this delightful little French-Canadian bistro with an easygoing, casual feel. Soleil, of course, means sun in French, and this friendly place certainly has a sunny disposition, not to mention lots of sun sculptures on the walls. The ceiling is painted a night sky and tables are simply topped with white linen and butcher paper. Regulars and strangers alike are warmly greeted by chef-owner Luc Alarie, who sends out good, value-oriented French fare. Starters include classics like onion soup gratinée and escargots à la bourguignonne, plus an interesting deep-fried Parmesan fondue. The entrées---mostly in the mid-teens with soup or salad added for a pittance---include baby lamb chops in creamy mustard sauce, grilled salmon in white wine sauce, entrecôte with pommes frites, and braised lamb shank. A number of enticing pastas are offered and desserts include a tarte Tatin. The wine list is serviceable, and a very modest corkage fee is charged for those wishing to raid their own cellars.

I recently had dinner in that great french bistro. The foods were amazing, the prices very reasonnable. I was really impress with the escargots and the crepes. They have an great selection of crepes for lunch, dinner and even bigger for brunch. I keep going back to try them all. They are amazing. They also have a chocolate crepe for dessert. I am telling you, it's worth every calories! The service is very good. The staff is very nice and the owner also makes you feel very welcome. They also have an all you can eat mussels night with their delicious french fries every wednesday night for only 14.95$ a person, with a reservation required the day before. I will try it very soon. They also do wine tasting dinners. I recommend that restaurant to all of you who can enjoy good french food served in a charmin and casual dinning room! I am glad I found that place.
