Wonderful service by all staff we met at the Thanksgiving Day Brunch, very customer service focused, very nice! This includes the staff on the food line, very prrdonable. The food was excellent!! Every single item we tried was delicious, presentation was also perfect! We will return😁
Friendly and attentive staff, excellent food quality and variety. We were there to celebrate a birthday and thoroughly enjoyed their Sunday Brunch.
Not one of the better meals- the food was overcooked, the waiter did not get the order right, and we were one of two tables with people at it. With so many great restaurants in the area, this is truly a desperation option.
We had tried their Sunday brunch buffet a few years ago. It was very pleasant and the location/parking is convenient. We remembered that while the buffet selections were limited, they were very tasty. It is a smaller dining area so the seating is limited which was very enjoyable as the noise was moderate and the table spacing was very comfortable. We wanted the same experience for a Mother's Day brunch and tried it again. The seating this time was more crowded and the environment was a bit more hectic. The dining area is still nice and pleasant and the service was friendly. The buffet selection was reasonable, but nothing especially exciting. The chocolate fountain was fun, but the selection of items to dip was limited to marshmallows. You could dip some strawberries if you got them from the fruit/salad table which was on the other side of the room. The entrees were tasty, but again nothing extraordinary, mostly the standard breakfast buffet type salads, entrees, desserts, and accompaniments. For a brunch buffet, I think the price was fair.
I actually would recommend it to someone for whom quiet is a very high priority. The food is good, not great. Not a place for foodies. We used it for a business meeting on a Friday night. The tables are well spaced and the restaurant is rarely full.
My family went for Christmas brunch. The food is ok not much of variety but the prime rib was good. We had fun and will go back in the future
Went for holiday brunch. Selections limited compared to other brunches I have visited. Most brunches also have breakfast items but this one, because of the holiday perhaps, only had 4-5 meal items (turkey, beef, veal, salmon..). Food was lukewarm at best and nothing special with respect to flavor. Service was very attentive and, if you can believe it, TOO attentive, with multiple servers asking if we wanted coffee or other refills, to the point we were interrupted more often than we should have been. The servers were very pleasant though.
Would not recommend.
Food was excellent; service could have been better. My greatest disappointment was that even though I mentioned it in making the reservation & again when they called to confirm there was no table set up with a high chair for my 19 month old grandson. We had to wait and the table where they placed us was not great-table for two with a walkway which is where they placed the high chair.
On our visit, the restaurant was empty. The service was superb as was the food. We were able to have a quiet conversation and a pleasant experience. Parking was below the hotel and plentiful and with the validation, free. Cost was comparable with local restaurants of similar quality of service and food.
I'll use this restaurant many times in the future.
The restaurant is not anywhere near what one would expect in Palo Alto or even in a good hotel. The staff is friendly but very inexperienced. The food is average. I was asked what temperature I'd like my pork chop, a question often asked at high end restaurants. I said whatever temp it should be for med. the meat came totally over cooked.
I asked what's in the middle of the plate with olive oil. The server cannot answer the question and never came back with a response.
The server broke the cork when opening the wine. She took it to someone who removed the cork behind the kitchen and brought it to serve us. We rejected that bottle.
The restaurant is really sub standard for Palo Alto or for a Westin hotel.
food was good as I would expect form a Westin property. Cordial service and it was a quiet place for a good discussion where you are not yelling at your table makes to converse. That was the main benefit - good for conversation and actually paying attention and listening.
We have only dined at Soleil for the Sunday brunch and keep returning, never feeling the need to try any other place. It satisfies in all aspects and we shall continue coming. Great place.
The Mother's Day brunch was a wonderful experience.
Soleil is nearly always empty for dinners and brunches on weekends, which means it must stay afloat via its hotel-based meals. Take advantage of its good food, excellent service and wonderful quiet for long, meaningful conversations at an excellent price.
Restaurant Soleil stepped up its game on Easter Day. Not only was there more to choose from but the quality and taste seemed to be kicked up a notch as well. Succulent lamb at an Easter brunch? Yes and excellent taste. Plenty of vegetables, and seafood. The prices were higher but the enriched feast was worth it.
