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

We had good service and a very tasty lunch. Great appetizer-poutine. Nothing like any other poutine I've had before.

Food was tasty, service was a bit slow. (The place has changed it's name to Select now as well). Was staying nearby and ventured into this little bistro as a friend used to frequent it years ago... Tried many of the items, and was rather pleased with them all. They have some great small plates: the wild mushrooms for example... More

Loved the atmosphere. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious! We will be back, can't wait to try out their adorable patio this summer. I'd highly recommend this place :)

There were four of us. We shared the gnocchi fondue and extremely generous mussel appetizers. Both were excellent. Nice additions to the fondue were the prosciutto wrapped apples and asparagus. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The vegetarian main is panella. The other mains we had were t pork shoulder, Mac and cheese with duck confit and the Atlantic Cod.... More

I sent my son and husband for a nice evening out at Cafe Select on Nov. 27, and they were very disappointed with the food they received. The Steak was raw and tasteless, so my husband sent it back, the replacement was much smaller and very salty. My son had the Branzino and it too was very bland. Will never... More
