Le Soleil has delicious food, don't get me wrong, but when we were there the other night, the service took forever. Our reservation was for 5:30pm and it wasn't until 6:45 that we finally received our final two courses. I had my 3-year old with me, and he was great, but by the end of the meal, we were all ready to go. The restaurant wasn't full when we were there, but I did notice a lot of to-go orders being packaged up, so maybe that's why the kitchen was so busy, but either way, it was a little frustrating to have to wait so long.
I review restaurants all over the city and it is very rare to find a restaurant that has a high level of food quality at such a reasonable price. Highly recommend!
Le soleil is one of our favorite restaurants. Food is always yummy with its generous portions and consistent delicious flavor. The service is thoughtful and detail oriented.
Great food, ambiance and was able to have conversation without a lot of noise!
Le Soleil did not disappoint - au contraire! Had not been there for some years but a friend recently spoke about it so off we went. Food is great.
casual place very good food, enjoyed my claypot with meat-not rushed friendly service
Delicious, inventive food and excellent service! Instead of waiting for Burma Superstar or B- Star, we ventured to Le Soleil and it's become an absolute favorite!
Service was great lunch special the beef was amazing. Their sticky rice mango was amazing! I'd go/recommend this place to frenz!!!@
Food consistently fresh and delicious.
I liked the fact that they had a menu that delineated gluten free and gluten sensitive options
I was born in Singapore. Living in SF, I could not find good Hainanese Chicken Rice until I found Le Soleil. In the SF bay area, it serves the best version, and comes closest to what I grew up with. The chicken is deliciously succulent and silky and the rice is fragrant! The dish is only available on Mondays and Fridays for lunch. Best to call ahead to place an order as there is limited portions. It is also available for dinner on these days by calling and ordering in advance. The lunch portion is smaller and cost less than the dinner meal.
great neighborhood spot / A gem
Great service & delicious meal--particularly the duck spring rolls. We loved it.
Convenient but not interesting. Convenient but not interesting. - Is that 50?
Been to Le Solei numerous times and food and service always good. My elderly parents just love this place and the owner comes by to greet them whenever we go. They have a good variety of Vietnamese dishes with Chinese influence. All dishes are presented and prepared well.
This is always a great restaurant.
We came in on a Thursday night and the place had few quests. Our guest was familiar with the restaurant and we later learned the family has owned the place since 1993. The decor has changed but food is still as good as our guest remembered it. Where do I start? The coconut soup was extraordinary. The calamari was deliciously unique, the sizzling seafood platter had a variety of seafood and the beef dish was exceptional. I will bring our next out of town visitors here. I will bring our sons here when they visit. This is our new go to restaurant.
delicious macadamia lamb chops. 😋
took friend for her birthday. she enjoyed her food as well, can't recall what she ate.
This was our first visit. We wanted to eat near Clement Street. Since we love Vietnamese food, we gave Le Soleil a try for lunch. We will definitely return! The food was delicious. The service was friendly and prompt. The price is right. We could tell that it is very popular.....by Noon it was almost full. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Very tasty food!
Tasty Vietnamese food with nice variety of flavors. Our waiter was a little surly until his colleague showed up to help but improved after that. A neighborhood favorite that I've long been planning to visit, very overdue and worth adding to our go-to list
Delicious options for both vegans and meat eaters.
Seafood was cooked perfectly. Food was very tasty and not overly salty which happens all too often. Service was efficient and friendly. Price was a little high.
Dropped in this quaint restaurant in a lovely neighborhood for a nice cozy Vietnamese dinner.
The two of us had three dishes with two sides. We started with the Duck Spring Roll - duck, cucumber, mint, vermicelli, lettuce, crispies, rice paper in hoisin sauce: is a must to begin a meal. Excellent with a perfect crunch...a favorite of mine and didn't disappoint. Shaken Beef - ribeye with onion, lemon and pepper dipping sauce: a substantial main dish, tender and caramelized; good portion and tasty; Roasted five-spice chicken, cabbage slaw, chili nuoc mam: good flavors, slightly on the dry side; Sides including: Garlic Noodle; Jasmine Rice; and chrysanthemum Tea for 2, which went well with our entrees. We enjoyed this quick, comfort meal. All the dishes came out quickly. Waitress was efficient. It hits the spot and fills our tummies. Will return.
Great food - nice fusion between asian and french cuisine
Good solid Vietnamese in a sweet setting.
Such a wonderful experience. Fresh and honest ingredients seasoned to perfection, coupled with super attentive and professional service. We'll definitely be coming back!
Delicious and great service!
Very good meals enjoyed by everyone at our table. Lots of variety to choose from and the service was professional and friendly too.
Great place with super tasty, interesting food at very reasonable prices. Friendly staff and usually not very crowded or a long wait. Interesting selection of bottle beers too. Hidden gem!
Food was great and beautiful presentation of various dishes ordered. Friendly staff. Parking difficult in this location.
Le Soleil is high quality, luscious food, and entirely reliable. The owners and staff are terrific. I am reminded to go there more often.
We loved the food here. Limited menu and all on the menu looks good.
Chicken lollipops were great, I'll go back just for them. Bo luc lac and oxtail also very good. Coming back for more.
Great food! Appetizers and main dishes were all delicious. The servers were very nice, but seemed a bit slow for a small restaurant.
Outstanding lobster special. Dinner on NYE can sometimes be disappointing but not at Le Soleil.
Great food and service!
Found this restaurant on Open Table, was not let down, in fact it was a hit for me and my guests.
Looked far better on Yelp photo's & review's than it was.
Ambiance nice. Great food - so tasty. We loved it and will return again and again.
