We enjoyed Select very much. The cool atmosphere with the steampunk vibe enhances the experience. The food is prepared well, with the knowledgable waitstaff able to discuss details of the menu to help you make a decision. The lobster risotto was a delicious side dish to share along with our filet. Our waiter was happy to share information on additional... More

Quality of food very good. Serving size was also plentiful. I had pork schnitzel and girlfriend had fish. Steak tartare as the appetizer also very good!

So I had no idea that this place has been around forever. But the naked velvet paintings have been replaced with more 'modern' ones (like the one commonly known as the crack wh&%e!) but the ambience is fantastic. Owners seem to always be around, food is fantastic and service even better. Definitely worth the visit.

We made reservations (which I would recommend as it filled up quickly) and arrived a few minutes before noon on a Friday. Once we looked at the menu, we couldn't decide what to order! But we both decided to get the Downtown Dining Week specials as they wouldn't last and we could come back to try other things. We both... More

We went to the restaurant for dinner, and it was generally a good experience in terms of food and friendly/efficient service (even if menu is slightly limited). But somehow the restaurant just missed that wow factor.

Its been a hit and miss last couple times we've been here over past few years. The last time we went the food was excellent (Mussels are to die for!) and the lamb was very tender. The service was alright (probably because we didn't order alcohol). It is pretty pricey but its considered fine-dining ~$80/couple with no drinks.

We first started coming to Cafe select 26 years ago and we have been coming sporadically over the years. We haven't been here on a while and much has changed. On a good note, the changes are good. The place is more open, and a bit brighter. The service is very good. The staff is friendly and the food was... More

We decided to check out Select after not being at Cafe Select since they closed their 109 Street location. We were warmly welcomed and were served by very friendly staff members. The food tasted great and the pacing of the courses was perfect. We found street parking as we arrived at 6 PM and downtown was starting to quiet down.... More

Great wine! Nice playlist, not too loud. To dip a tender pan fried gnocchi in creamy delicious fontina/Brie is such a treat! The beef tenderloin was superb and matching it with baked maple brussel sprouts is healthy tasty deliciousness! I switched the garlic mashed potatoes for the lobster risotto. Wow. The brussel sprouts and the risotto were the best I've... More

This restaurant was once called Cafe Select. In it's time it was a great restauant, but all good things come to an end. Then a Groupon arrived under the name Select. I thought maybe it's under new management (which it is), and decided to give it a try. My meal was amazing (not only tasty, but hot too)!! Starting with... More
