    We had a wonderful dinner, and a wonderful experience! Our server, Stacy, was magnificent, looked after our every need, gave us great recommendations. We had a beautiful evening, so wonderful that we returned again, after the symphony to have dinner (we had appetizers before!) Our appetizers were delicious! Thank you again for all the staff at La Sélect Bistro, can’t wait to return

    A very good French restaurant. Everything I had was done very well, from the milk bread to the olives, halibut, and lemon tart. The chicken, risotto, and chocolate mousse were table favorites also. I would definitely eat here again.

    This is not the Le Select you remember. With the reopening, a lot has been lost. It looks the same, though in a bit of disrepair (torn seat cushions) but the charm and quality and nowhere near what they were. Previously known for their bread, they no longer offer any. I used to adore their omelette with haricots verts and potatoes au gratin. Now a lesser omelette is served with French fries and salad. The bavette steak in the steak frites was unbearably chewy (and was served cold!), the burger was very greasy. And the chocolate mousse we had for dessert seemed old, with a dark skin on top, like it had been sitting in a fridge for days. It was not enjoyed. Their French onion soup was truly delicious and our waiter was great, but we will not be returning. Such a shame.

    Excellent example of a French-style bistro. Well-made, well-presented dishes - creative but including old bistro favourites like Croque Madame and French onion soup. Service is where they excel - wait staff is attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. Drinks and food delivery are paced appropriately. Staff have informed recommendations and are quick to resolve issues (we had none, next table ordered something they didn't understand and it was corrected to their liking).

    It is a lovely "old school" French experience with white table clothes and monogramed plates. I would recommend. I will say that the flavor combinations are more subdued in comparison to the "new" French, but the atmosphere alone makes up the difference.

    Le sélect has always been a favorite restaurant for me for many years but when I made a reservation for brunch last Sunday and was told I can only get an American drip coffee because their espresso machine was broken that was a real blow. In want world does a French restaurant not serve espresso coffee??? I was so disappointed I don’t think I will be going back. Very poorly managed situation.

    Great food, and atmosphere! Although service was very slow. Not sure if it was that they were new staffs or not enough staffs, but it was a lengthly service. From the time we sat to the time we placed our drinks order, was about 30 mins. And from the time we placed our dessert order, it took 30 mins to be delivered, and we only had two pieces of cake.

    Delicious duck confit, and onion soup. Charcuterie board was focused on meat and three mustards -- no cheese unfortunately. Delicious mussels but the French fries were too salty. Bread was meagre and non-absorbent. Attentive waiter. Restaurant is tiled / zinc everywhere and tables are tight, so ambience can be loud. Also we were sat next to two drunken louts who clearly didn't belong in a restaurant; they were asked to leave by a certain time (6:15), with plenty of notice, but then they were allowed to stay an additional 30-35 minutes, for some reason -- possibly the big tip we saw them offer. They ruined our night out which makes it harder to review the restaurant. We had indicated at the time of booking that the occasion was to be an anniversary dinner. Why we were sat at the noisiest spot next to those drinking buddies was puzzling. We did not want to seem rude but during the meal we saw that another table-for-two at the other end of the bar area was available throughout, for example.

    We have been several times to Le Select and brought our friends too! This time unfortunately was disappointing. The food was very dry and lacking flavour. I have ordered the croque madam many times and always loved it but this time it was dry and missing something?!? Don’t think we’ll be back for awhile. Hopefully this was an off day for the chef.

    Great evening at Le Sélect Bistro last night - family birthday celebration - 4 adults. We all had steak-frites, salad and shared the goat cheese tart appetizer. Coffee and deserts. Food was good - steak was perfectly cooked, though flank steak isn’t the tenderest. Frites hot and crispy - delicious. Sadly the espresso maker wasn’t working so we couldn’t have espresso coffees. The staff was wonderful in every way. Highly recommend!

    We love Le Select! It was closed for a long time due to Covid but the new owners have brought it back very much as it was - a French gem in downtown Toronto, and a real institution. My only comment is that it might be nice to bring back the spaetzle with some of the dishes, the salmon brunch dish in particular, but on the whole the menu has been revised by just about the right amount. It's always a joy to come for brunch!

    Went for a date and it was very lovely. The food was great, the service was top. In terms of ambiance I was not expecting it to be loud but it did not bother us, people were having fun and enjoying the ambiance. I would go back! Some extra tips for the staff: Loved that they asked us if we had any questions about the menu but would have loved a longer interaction with our server. overall the service was 10/10.

    We had a wonderful meal at Le Select. They may have been understaffed as service was excellent but a bit slow (placing initial drink orders, wine refills, etc). Staff was hustling and we were not pressed for time so it didn’t hinder our enjoyment.
