    Our waiter was fantastic, place was packed but service was fast and food was deliciously prepared. They didn’t have the red we were asking for but our waiter brought us a bottle that was $10 cheaper and even more delicious!

    I saw this restaurant listed as one of the best in Toronto and decided to try it when we came for a visit. We had a wonderful dinner - excellent food and ambiance. What really set it apart for us, however, was the service. Our server was welcoming, efficient, knowledgeable about the menu and kind. She made us feel comfortable and well taken care of. Our experience was just lovely because of her.

    I’ve been going to Le Select for a few decades, since it was on Queen St. This is the first time we have been back since the pandemic and it is under different ownership. It is still a lovely place to be and the staff are well-trained and friendly but the food is simply not as good as it once was. We did not like the half litre of wine recommended by the server, particularly for the price, and when she asked if we liked it and we indicated we were not that happy with it, she said maybe we would like it better when the food arrived. We didn’t. She should have offered to replace it since we had only had a few sips. The poisson fumé, the smoked whitefish appetizer, seems to be a reinterpretation of the whitefish mousse on the old Le Select menu. It was also a long term favourite of ours at the old restaurant but we did not like the new version. The pâté de campagne appetizer was good. We ordered bread and there is now a $12 charge. The bread is very good but when when the dinner runs $150 per person, it should be included. The meat on my steak frites was of mediocre quality, and the fries tasted like they came out of a bag at the grocery store. I used to order this dish regularly from the old Le Select. It was my favourite and it is no longer one I could recommend. It was poor value for money. The bouillabaisse was good. The duck confit was ok. We ordered only one dessert, the crème brûlée, and it was very good. We went for a special occasion and we left wishing we had gone elsewhere because too much of the meal was disappointing.

    Since relocating to Ajax in 2021, we hadn't visited Le Select Bistro until recently. Eager to indulge in their steak and fries along with salmon tartare, we specifically planned a trip to Toronto for this dining experience. Regrettably, the steak lacked flavor, the sauce was virtually absent, and instead of the expected authentic baguette and butter, we were served garlic bread. This disappointing meal made our trip and expenditure seem unworthy due to the lackluster taste of the food.

    My family enjoyed a wonderful meal here. We ordered the bread, French onion soup, and onion tart for appetizers, and while everything was good, the French onion soup was outstanding. For mains we ordered the black cod, half roast chicken with side pomme puree, and the duck confit. Everything was cooked well and had a nice flavour, though I will say the portion on the fish was on the smaller side for the price paid. We shared the tarte tatin for dessert and that was a lovely end to our meal. Definitely recommend, even if it’s a bit pricey!

    We had an outstanding brunch at Le Select on Saturday, from the excellent ambiance and food, to the pitch perfect service. From he hostess to our waiter to the helpful, and handsome bearded Sommelier, the whole experience was flawless. Our group was catching up after a long time of not seeing each other, so there was a lot of time at the table before we ordered, and our waiter showed great patience returning several times, and assuring us there was no rush to order. When we finally did order, the food came well-timed, and all together. The Sommelier was very brilliant, as he walked us through the extensive wine list, finally recommending the perfect brunch wine to fit our tastes, mood and budget, and somewhat of a rare offering too! We all exclaimed that when the elderly disabled guest at the next table slipped off of their chair to land on the ground, the Sommelier leapt over to give him a hand up, wow! I would not only recommend, but indeed implore anybody who likes great food, ambiance and service to get to Le Sélect Bistro without delay!

    Service and ambience is really nice. Though background music was too loud and it was all about american oldies (70's 80's 60's) not sure what is French about that, but still it was too loud. The food was ok. Onion soup was good, the Burger though was dry, salty and the 2 pieces of bacon were too big and thick. Not something we would enjoy, bacon should be thin and crispy not so thick almost rare. Still the burger was very dry and salty. The fries were ok but not really good. The "salad" that came with my Croque Madam was not a salad per-se , it was just a bunch of lettuce. What part of salad was not understood? I think food should improve. Croque Madame was ok but the salad?? what salad was that?

    Service was just excellent, they were happy to accommodate my anniversary request to have a flower in the table for my partner. Even with our set amount of time, they were not rushing us at all. The plates are designed for one, but two apps (bread & onion soup) and two entrees (squash risotto & Lamb with celeriac) were perfect to share :) even though our pace of eating didn’t leave time for desert, they offered the dessert menu anyhow and a place at the bar as the next guests had arrived. We didn’t want to cause a fuss so I grabbed an espresso with the bill. I would like to say that the 1h 45 slot for 2 is perfect, we’re just slow eaters so thank you to the employees who took care of us :) excellent ambiance and the most delicious food, Le select bistro is here to leave you nothing but full and happy. Fantastic restaurant.

    We (a couple) visited on Saturday. The restaurant is lovely. The menu is great. The service was great too. The bread and the terrine were lovely. Our main courses were great too. All very well presented. We added a gin and tonic and a bottle of wine and the bill (including service) was around 200 dollars.

    Restaurant style and decor is beautiful. What irked me was that we arrived a bit early for our reservation and I still felt as though we were being rushed out by how quickly we were being served. I can only speak for myself as my companion may not feel the same way. Anyway, we were served and almost finished eating our apps and mains after only being there a half hour. I understand that good service is meant to be timely and attentive, but this felt like I was being rushed to get to the end of my meal. The mussels also arrived at our table lukewarm, with the sauce pooled at the bottom of the bowl and the mussels on top dry. I also had one too many pieces of sandy bits or hard crunchy bits (whatever they were) in my mussels. The only things that came out hot were the fries and escargot. It makes one wonder how much of the food is actually prepared fresh to order...maybe this is a one-off situation. Unfortunate, nonetheless. I did not bother to mention this to the waitress as I already felt like I was being rushed along to finish throughout the meal. The amount of food you get is appropriate for the price range, which is good. However, I'm not sure how I can recommend or even go back to this restaurant after this experience. This is especially because an evening dining experience should be relaxing.
