    When being seated I realized that the people next to us had a lot of cologne/perfume and since I have asthma I asked if there was another table and things were changed up without any fuss. I really do appreciate that as my only other option was to leave. The food was magnificent and a very special place to celebrate our anniversary! WELL DONE!

    First time at this restaurant for lunch and will DEFINITELY be back! We were there early so it was quiet - lunch rush had not started. Had the buttermilk chicken sandwich and a mocktail - both were fantastic. Coffee after lunch was also great and the service was very good - attentive (but not hovering) and everything was brought to our table quickly. Would recommend for a nice lunch!

    Well, well, well. What can I say. I asked for a booth away from the door. Was told no. First flag. I get cold easily so I just wrapped my winter coat around my legs! Ordered our coffees……waitress comes back to inform us, NO cream! How does a restaurant offer creamy dishes with no cream. I said to my husband that I felt like zippin down to Shoppers on Memorial to buy two litres of cream. Meal was so so.

    Great lunch experience. I had a beautifully presented Buddha Bowl and my companion had the Corn and Avocado Salad with chicken. Both were amazing and truly satiating. Top that off with charming first-class service from Daniel, and it turned out to be the perfect 2 hour business lunch you hope for.

    First time my partner and I have dinned at the new location(though we have dined when it was a previous restaurant). The venue is lovely and sufficiently quiet that you can enjoy the pleasure of the conversation at your table. Staff, in particular our server, were all amazing. Our server was very attentive to our table, wonderful to converse with and was equally playful and professional in her conversations with us. The speciality cocktails were delightful. The apps, entrees and deserts were phenomenal. Flavour explosions in our mouths. The amount of food was just right, not too little that you leave hungry (all too common at a place at this price point) and not too much that you felt you needed to live that famous Monty Python skit. And when you consider the price, a full meal with beverages is not cheap, but I would say the best bang for you money for fine dining in TBay.

    The service was good but the food was mediocre. I had the shrimp risotto and the shrimp was over cooked and rubbery and the risotto could have been more creamy. My sister had the salmon with broccolini with was ice cold so sent it back for another. Salmon was over cooked. They did comp her dessert which was nice.

    The pork tenderloin was so tender and moist with a beautiful glaze topped with peanuts. The generics that accompanied it was scrumptious! My husband enjoyed his Parmesan crusted chicken breast and risotto. Very filling!

    Great experience. Service was top notch and friendly. We arrived for our reservation 15 min late and had a show to catch an hour and a half later. They accommodated us fully, getting our order in quickly and apps/entrees out together. Food was incredible too! Braised short ribs could not have been more tender and tasty.

Creme Brule was not amazing, but just a personal preference. Cheesecake though...omg. to die for. I will definitely be back multiple times! Prices were very reasonable.

    My husband and I had a lovely evening at Seler. We really appreciate the time Chef Chris took to ensure my husband did not have an allergic reaction to his food. He has a laundry list of allergies and it’s not easy to accommodate but of course, a mistake means he dies lol, so, it’s really nice to see them treating it seriously and making fantastic food. Chef Chris put time and thought into how to make the meal work and what the substitution could be instead of just cutting out the sides with no replacement and charging the same, or offering a plain piece of meat without sauce, which I would say is the norm for our experience with his allergies. So nice to see a restaurant that actually knows its own ingredients, which again is by far not the norm. The service was excellent as always. Everyone was really friendly. The ambiance was great. The food was amazing. Can’t wait to go back :)

    Very disappointed with my meal. I decided to have the filet mignon. I like my meat cooked well done. It comes to our table and it looks ok. When I put my fork in it and tried to cut it, it was spongy. I managed to get a small piece off but it was nowhere near how I ordered it. My friend ordered it too and hers was the same (she ordered medium well). The waitress advised it’s been sousvied. Nowhere in the description did say that. She took them back and recooked them but they were still not good. It was like chewing bubblegum. I could not eat it. The waitress tried to make it right by comping our dessert. Had I known it would be sousvied, I would never have ordered it. I have eaten at Seler many times before and it has always been delicious.

    We only ordered food and every bite was eaten. The visual presentation of each plate was delightful. The pork belly was the best I have tasted. The blend of flavors was perfectly balanced. The shrimp was very large and cooked perfectly and was a nice compliment to the flavourful rigatoni. The beef shortribs meat was moist and easily pulled from the bone. The smoked cheddar Mac & cheese was hit with everyone. As a far of beet salad, this one was a hit. Just the right amount of fresh arugula allowing the flavour of the other ingredients to shine. We chose the share the creme brulee. It the perfect ending to an amazing meal. We all agreed we would happily have dinner here again.
