Had 19 family members over for brunch, was impressed with their ability to handle us. Everyone enjoyed their meals, they were very accommodating with all of our needs.

I also recommend them for dinner.

We've enjoyed Soleil@k when staying at the attached Gaslamp Marriott in the past, so were looking forward to dinner again this time. We were surprised to find that the menu, which had been largely the same for several years, had changed completely. Sure enough, after asking our server, we found that they recently got a new head chef. The food is still good, although we found fewer items on the menu that intrigued us. There is a strong southern influence to the dishes, which is fine but a bit limiting. But I will say that the desserts are MUCH better than they used to be--even though there are only a few, they were all fantastic!

In any event, the decor is still pleasant and the service truly outstanding. We'll still look forward to eating there in the future, just less for the food and more for the memories and overall experience. The wine list is diverse in both varietals and price points, and they also have an impressive selection of after-dinner cordials and liqueurs.

We were unable to eat due to dietary restrictions. However, the staff was very kind and the service was excellent. All of San Diego was crowded due to a convention and we were still seated promptly, with a knowledgeable server arriving quickly. She explained that the menu was limited because of the convention and did her best to help us. The food looked great and other diners were enjoying it.

The food was alright, not great for the price. The ambiance was nice, though very dark making it extremely hard to read the menu.The drinks were wonderful and strong. All in all we would not return to eat again, as it was not anything that we enjoyed that much

My friend wanted a beer with lung but the bar doesn't open until 5. Really? We both had a sandwich on sourdough that seemed a little stale. Not awful but not worthy of a return visit.

We went there as it was close to Petco Park for the Billy Joel concert. It took an hour to get service and then part of our order did not come. Granted, it was a busy night, but this was just poor service.

Absolutely TERRIBLE...services was unbelievably slow. So much so that at least 4 couples sitting around us left the restaurant. When we finally got our food, it was ice cold. Never again!!!! We actually heard the waiter tell one of the customers "I don't care, I get paid by the hour"........

My wife and I got away from our kids and enjoy nice romantic dinner at Soleil@K. Kristee took very good care of us. My lamb chops where huge and very tasty.
After dinner we went to their bar Altitude for a drink - a must see place.

The team only had an hour for a lunch meeting and it took 1.5+ hours to get our food. So I had to leave before getting served, and didn't get to eat. A few from my team stayed behind to continue to wait for their food.

Out of town for a conference, we ate here for Thanksgiving, where they had a very bountiful buffet, all inclusive, including desserts and salads, reasonably priced. They managed to squeeze us in for a reservation, although they were highly booked. We sat comfortable in the tented in area adjacent to the restaurant. Servers were polite and professional. Special thanks go to Eric, the Manager, for running such a nice and friendly establishment and his efforts to help.

They really are not able to honor reservations, especially during any busy time. It is more of a walk in restaurant for the hotel. There does not seem to be a restaurant manager, or it there is he/she hides in the back and lets the poor staff be thrown to the wolves. Not really their fault, because there does not seem to be enough staff or a system of organization. Maybe with new management they could get things under control.

We tried to eat breakfast after spending one night in the hotel & we could not get waited on & the place wasn't that busy! Unbelievable & extremely rude. We left after waiting for awhile & walked to Toscana's for a wonderful breakfast with impeccable service. We will never eat at Soleil's again.

We tried this place at taste of gaslamp and they had the best sampler out of 20 or so others we tried. Other than the poor service from the valet, who quickly shooed us away regardless of our dinner reservation, and the giant sign stating complimentary valet for people eating in the restaurant; the experience was good. We had flat bread and an assortment of entrees, all of which were delicious.

The service was good, and the atmosphere was great for people watching as a padres game was going on at the time.

There were very few people there so no excuse for bad service. But it was neglectful and unacomadating. There was no turkey bacon, turkey sausage, lox for the bagels or chicken and waffles. The breakfast buffet was 19 my husband ordered that. Most items he wanted had to be ordered from the kitchen. On let's French toast, fruit. They were included in the price you just had to wait to get them.
Nice outdoor seating though at the back entrance of the ballpark.

I was impressed with the drinks, very well balanced and delicious. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious BUT the service lacked. Perhaps it was her first time in the industry since she seemed to not know the menu and forgetful with our order. I would go again for the food and drinks, however; I would request a server with experience for the full experience.

We went there with reservations and never was I notified in advanced that we would wait an hour for our food on valentines day. They had pre made menus and the kitchen was just too under staffed to handle a not busy restaurant. We left after being seated and them letting us know that we'd wait an hour for the food. We were starving. I'll maybe try it again I'm in the area but not for a special occasion. Luckily I had open table app and chose a better choice then and there

My spouse and I went here for valentines day for the first time. I am a vegetarian and they had a special valentines day menu without any vegetarian options. I immediately asked if it was possible to get a substitution because I am a vegetarian or if we should just order from the regular menu. He said he'd be happy to ask the chef and they were very willing to accommodate. The meal I had was a vegetable risotto which was absolutely amazing. My spouse equally enjoyed their rack of lamb. The only thing I was disappointed in was not knowing that they had free valet! We spent about 15 minutes trying to find parking and paid $10, this is completely not their fault though. We are definitely returning back to this restaurant!

Aside from the varied menu with the fresh, delicious and beautifully presented dishes and first class service, at competetive prices, Soleil at "K'"s beautiful decor provides a perfect, relaxing ambience. Too much contemporary decor seems angular and cold, but this restaurant has both elegance and warmth-- a combination of varied vistas with soft as well as geometric shapes and gentle, but not dim, lighting. We wonder who your designer is.

We had Thanksgiving dinner at their buffet, and really enjoyed it! There was enough variety to keep things interesting, but not so much that the choices were overwhelming. I was quite happy that they decided to put out a decent number of well-prepared items rather than a huge number of so-so ones. The carved turkey and roast beef were particularly delicious! If in the area for Thanksgiving again, we'd gladly eat here again.
