    I can't help it, but have to compare to the "old" Le Select. I was a fan of it, had many dinners and lunches, and booked out their private rooms in the back a few times for larger meetings/dinners. It was a favourite for me in terms of value for money. The interior has not changed, it still has the cosy bistro decor, with the nice bar and metal tiles on the ceiling. I do have an issue with the food. We had the "poison fume" (smoked whitefish) and beef tartar for appetizers. Good size portions, nicely arranged. We liked both, in my opinion, both appetizers were a bit too salty. The smoked fish is flaked fish (previously it was a mousse which had a (obviously) finer texture) and it has a strong smoke flavour. I recommend the beef tartare; with a bit less salt, this would be a perfect dish. For the mains, I ordered the lamb burger, medium rare to medium, with a garden salad and my wife had the trout and a side of mashed potatoes. The lamb burger came well done, the patty was 6 to 7 mm thick, i.e. too thin. The lamb was dry and chewy, this was a disappointment. The garden salad was super salty again. I will say that my wife liked it like that...(??ok!). The trout was nice, and the mashed potatoes were perfect. I complained about the burger and saltiness, and we were offered a free desert which was nice; we picked the lemon tart which was good. Overall, I found that the food quality was far below what I was used to from Le Select, and I think the complimentary desert was not really a consolation prize for the dry lamb and salty appetizer and salad. No bread & butter were offered as we sat down, this is a miss for a French bistro. The wine list is as large as it was, it's a whole book and a delight to study. Prices have definitely moved up for everything, some sharply, but I can't compare 1:1, and I am somewhat ok with a reasonable price increase. Overall, I recommend Le Select as a nice place to go, maybe they will do even better on the food with time.

    Le Sélect is consistently excellent ! From the ambiance when you walk in, to the beautiful decor and the excellent food you are in for a great night. The food is consistently good and high quality. The oysters from PEI were fresh and delicious and the moules frites were an excellent winter night dish. The chocolate mousse shouldn’t be ignored either ! I will return time and time again and continue to refer all friends and family here !

    The steak tartare was acidic due to too much mustard or cornichon juice in the beef. I left half of it because it was inedible. The truite meuniere was nothing but a slab of lake trout (i.e. salmon) and was nothing special and nothing like I expected. Not impressed. My partner's appetizer frise salad with lardons was good but too large for an appetizer and could have been a main course. The steak/frites was not so good. The steak was good and tasty, but the steak was chewy, but the frites were great. He left half the steak due to the inedibility of the beef. The desserts were great, though! A lot of wasted food that could have been much better as we wasted about half of both meals due to inedibility.

    I haven't been since it reopened, was happy to return as its a great space. The service was okay - there were some forgotten condiments that we just let go and my tea was a different tea than I ordered. The escargot was under-seasoned and the steak was oversalted. I would love to give it another chance as I just love the venue but its not a 4 star visit unfortunately.

    Like a family French restaurant. Friendly service and food are good. Also price fair. But I don’t really like the seating settings and interior decor may need some update. I know it’s a French restaurant but we are in Toronto, English friendly environment would feel more comfortable. (Feel embarrassed when I visit the washroom and not know which should go until I use google translate 😔) anyways, I will go back because the food are yummy 🤭

    I used to love this place but we didn’t like our mains. The appetizers were great. But the duck was over cooked, dry and cold when served and the steak was super salty. The chocolate mouse wasn’t tasting like chocolate at all. We just tasted the orange in it. The Rum soaked cake was not good too. The cake was like a dry bread and hard. I hope they become like what it used to be. The waiter was not caring or attentive, the wait time for food was over an hour and the waiter never even asked us once if we are ok with the food or anything.

    Disappointed with the flavour and quality of food. Food does not reflect the prices at all. Rack of lamb is not even a half rack. Duck confit was hard and tasted roasted, came with baked beans(?!?!). Food was salty. Didn't ask how we wanted meat cooked. Drinks were underwhelming. Gnocchi was over cooked and too soft. Apple tart dessert was just okay, apples tasted a bit burnt. Service was not good at all. We were sat at the back of the restaurant because some of our party was dressed a bit more casual. For almost $500 I am overall disappointed, would not recommend or come back.

    Extremely poor service. We waited an hour for our main courses to arrive. Two parties had sat down after us and received their food. When we asked about our food order they said it would be out in 3-5 minutes. We waited another 25 mins with no food. We inquired to speak to the manager and the manager Jason came after 15 mins. He gave us a hollow apology and said our food will be out in 2 more mins. We asked to just be given our check to which he responded in a snicker ‘so would you like me to pack it up?’ In what managers mind is is okay to make a patron wait 1.5 hours, see we are visibly upset and offer to pack up a nice dinner? Jason was rude, abrupt and kept a smirk on through this whole awkward interaction. The food was very good and so was the wine. Jason, the manager, needs to learn how to properly train new staff and actually manage the restaurant.

    FIX THE SALT!!! Adam, our server, was absolutely awesome. He deserves a collective apology from us for piling on to him about the SALT. Every one of our meals, with the exception of the salad nicoise, was unbelievably SALTY. Each one of us in our group are reasonably accomplished cooks so we understand the importance of judicious use of salt. The level of salt made most of our meals at Le Sélect for our annual Nov 11 lunch was decidedly unpleasant. Thank you for asking for our feedback. And PLEASE do give Adam a sincere single of appreciation from all of us. He was magical. Warren
