    Server was great - vet friendly and attentive. All food was tasty, but I would have preferred a little less salt. Loved the cassoulet and duck confit dish. The burger was tasty but we thought the patty was a little small and there was too much of the aioli on it.

    I was there about a month ago and enjoyed my meal very much. This time it’s wasn’t as good. I got the same order both times…a croque monsieur. This time to sandwich was a bit cold. Not sure if you changed the recipe but it definitely wasn’t the same. Everything else was very good.

    We used to come to Le Select before Covid, but had not been back for a number of years. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it is now even better than before. I had the duck confit and my wife had the black cod. Both were wonderful - as were our appetizers. We will definitely be coming back often.

    The space is beautiful and the wine list is still wonderfully deep. We enjoyed the fresh seafood platter but we were disappointed with the cook on all of our steaks. It was a busy Saturday night and the servers seemed rushed (not their fault), but we likely would have enjoyed more wine/desserts if we didn't feel so hurried. Table of 4 was out of there in about an hour and a half.

    Wow, this place has really fallen off… The menu is boring, not that French-feeling and not priced appropriately for what it is. The service was inattentive, and the server didn’t know the wine at all. On price: I expect a 3x markup on wine vs the store, not 4x or more. $6 for each little PEI oyster at brunch? Some bread is $10? I can’t see myself going back any time soon. No wonder it was half-empty on a Mother’s Day Saturday.

    It was cool that day. We were sat at the back and because the doors were open, it was cold in the space, which reduced our enjoyment.

    Everything was very good, except one aspect of the service. Servers came by several times after we had finished our meal, conveying the notion that we should leave already. There were many empty tables and some others with patrons still there. I don't understand why we were hurried out. People come for brunch, not just to eat-- we can do that at home-- but mainly to enjoy the company, of course along with the food and ambience.

    1. The food itself was not very good for French food. I’ve eaten at other French restaurants and this one failed to hit the mark. My friend and I were excited to go yet we were left disappointed. The escargot had a very lemony taste and it’s not supposed to be. 2. It was my friends bday and I had specifically out that in the notes. I also mentioned it to the waiter and I also mentioned it to the manager about a free dessert. The manager (female short brown hair with glasses) replied that because some people have allergies, they don’t want to offend. This is such a cop out answer. I’ve never had a restaurant deny me a bday dessert. I know this is Canada but in the states, any time it’s someone’s bday, there’s a free little dessert. I was disappointed this could not be fulfilled. I’m not even sure what the managers response really means, it just feels like laziness and if you want repeat customers, then go above and beyond. Will never come back here 3. For the price and value of the food - horrible

    The classic French bistro menu attracted us, and the food exceeded our hopes! The mussels were the most succulent, sweet and plump I have had outside of Belgium. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly, and our fries were hot and crisp - not too salty either. These seem like simple virtues, but they are divine when achieved together with attentive service and a genuinely hospitable setting.
