Cafe Soleil

Cafe Soleil and Lounge, located just off the Farragut West Metro Stop, has set the standard for dining in Washington for over a decade with our innovative cuisine and unmatched service. We are renown for our quaint, French inspired dining room that is ideal for a business lunch or a quiet escape from the busy hustle of Washington's business district.

We recently added a happy hour that runs seven days a week from 5-8 pm. This menu boasts fine wines at only $5 a glass, and small bites that "are fit for foodies" at an affordable price.

Book your office holiday parties, private happy hours, or meeting space with us. We offer the most competitive meeting space rates in Washington, DC.

We have also added a daily specials menu. Do not miss Tuesday's "Menage a Trois" Special, Wednesday's half priced wine night, and Saturday and Sunday Suppers featuring three courses for $20.99.

Always call ahead or book a reservation online. Cheers, Soleil

"The restaurant is the size of a cafe. It's very convenient to metro. Food was good and reasonably priced. I would go back again. I would have preferred not to have music playing as it competes with the dinner conversation."

"The location is very convenient to a lot of things, Renwick, White House, Farragut metros, and the street patio can be very pleasant when there isn't much traffic on 17th Street. But, the food is overpriced and not wonderful."

"We met an out-of-town friend at Cafe Soliel for dinner. Very charming little place, right next to the Farragut West Metro station, which was super convenient for two of us coming downtown from different places in Virginia! The atmosphere was very pleasant. We were able to easily converse. Food and service were both very nice. Small wine list, but very reasonably priced."

"Cafe Soleil is located on 17th Street just a block from the Renwick Museum and White House. The food is exceptional. I had the Heidenberger burger (burger with cole slaw) which was super good, and it hit the spot with a blue moon and fries on the side. The wait staff is very attentive and the atmosphere is light- literally the window/doors were open and the breeze and city life could be felt. What a wonderful eating experience. thanks."

"Couldn't have been a nicer day. Was able to have lunch right at the front of the restaurant where the doors were open to the street and the beautiful weather outside. The food was excellent, particularly the overly generous sized burger. Can't wait to go back."

"I was really looking forward to having dinner here since it had been at least a year. The service was excellent, but we both ordered steaks (medium and medium rare) and they came out very well done. We sent them back but didn't have time to wait for replacement steaks. Our server was wonderful and removed the food from the bill, but it was still such a disappointment. With so many other delicious restaurants in the neighborhood, I doubt we'll risk going here again."

"Café Soleil offers a tremendous value, menu and location for a comfortably upscale DC lunch without the clatter and ostentatiousness of many $$$$ restaurant options. Our meals included a delicious seafood soup of the day, mussels and a tasty BLT sandwich. We were pleased with the service which was attentive, but not overbearing --- in fact, we lingered at the table long after the meal ended without any "encouragement" to depart. Additionally, we could actually hear one another as we spoke -- an aspect of pleasant dining many restaurants ignore or are incapable of providing. This was my first experience at Café Soleil which will lead me back for dinner and more."

"This is the second occasion that I have enjoyed Soliel with a friend from out-of-town whom I have not seen in some time. It was the perfect setting for a relaxed conversation. The service was attentive but discreet. The food was excellent. We shared the crab/avocado stack before our main entrees. It was excellent and generous. My duck was also excellent and my friend thoroughly enjoyed the seafood pasta."

"Not the best meal I've had in DC this weekend...but, also not the worst. My Lamb burger was over cooked and completely overwhelmed by the excessive amount of goat cheese slathered over it. My companion's Turkey Club sandwich was disappointing because they seemed to have forgotten the turkey. But, no worries. We loved our weekend in DC."
