We enjoyed an anniversary dinner at Cafe Select with our son and daughter in law. It was a nice place to b e able to visit in since there was no loud music, the patrons were not all bunched in to one noisy corner and we did not feel rushed. The food was very good, the service attentive but not... More

Our complemts to the chef for a perfect meal. It was outstanding from beginning to end.The calamari was lightly seasoned and dusted before being sautéed to perfection. The salad course followed with crisp greens and a light vinegarette. Our main course was a blackened salmon nicely grilled and then finished in the oven. Dessert was a delicious bread pudding. Our...

If I've ever had a better meal in Edmonton I can't remember when it would have been. We went to Select (Formerly Cafe Select) this past week. From the appetizers through the main course and the desert everything was simply delightful. Deep fried perogies, beef tartar and calamary all spectacular. I asked the waiter if I should have the Coquilles... More

The food was fantastic. All 5 of us had wonderful meals. The pork chop was unbelievably tender....could be cut with a butter knife...really! One of my companions claims the Mac and Cheese is to die for. Another couldn't stop talking about the mussels. And the lamb was also a favorite. Good service and a cozy, upscale atmosphere. Great place for... More

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.
