took ages for the food to come out but the staff was incredibly nice
we really wanted fondue and it was on the menu! but when we tried to order they said they didn’t have it, which was disappointing because we really only went for the fondue. the charcuterie board was nice though. it might be helpful for future guests if the menu is updated to more accurately reflect the lack of fondue.
Originally booked for a business lunch, the restaurant is quaint and the food was good. Unfortunately it looked like the wait staff were run off their feet but that didn’t impact the quality of service.
AMAZING. made me feel at home in switzerland. great comfort food. 10/10.
So lovely and fun, but definitely loud. The fondue was great and the vibe was cool and casual.
Food was delicious. Great service. Would definitely return.
After exactly 90 minutes we were asked to leave and presented with the bill. I had hardly finished my main course and was just about to look at the dessert menu. Terrible and embracing experience.
Asked waiter if my meal would be gluten free, which they confirmed. The meal came out covered in bread (which would cause a severe reaction if I were to eat it). I let the waiter know and asked if the meal could be redone with no bread. After 20 mins of waiting, I had to get up and re-ask. I waited for another 20 mins for the manager, by which time my friends had finished their meals. I ended up leaving without eating - and did not receive so much as an apology for the mix up. Terrible service!!
So nice to go back to Cafe Select! My salad, salmon with the potato pancake and apple strudel were all delicious! The service was outstanding and the prices most reasonable. Great indoor and outdoor dining available. Wonderful dining option in NoLita.
Excellent food and service!
Best place for a private dinner! Had an amazing time!
Excellent fondue. Very nice staff. Hard to talk over noise level.
Everything was great, the food, our server, the cocktails and the woman who greeted and sat us. Will be back next time we’re in the city!
Great little spot. We ordered the cheese plate and the chocolate fondue. We were informed you cannot just order the chocolate fondue, which is good to know for anyone going just for that. Overall a good experience.
The food was excellent. Will definitely be back
I used to love this place but the service was atrocious. The waiter was really rude to my group of friends, acting like she was above us and didn’t want to be there. Kinda ruined our whole experience. Not ever going back.
The party of 7 was celebrating my sons 26th birthday. It was fabulous food but getting attention by a server in the beginning was frustrating and a bit disappointing. The ambiance is wonderful and I tried to get another reservation for this weekend but couldn’t.
I recommend this restaurant but the service could be better.
Had so much fun at this ever chic spot. Staff was sweet and accommodating. Felt safe
Excellent Food, lovely service!!
Great service, we were seated right away this past weekend. Friendly staff. Had the lobster & bacon club along with the chicken schnitzel sandwich. Both were delicious! Will come back. Excited when the ski chalet in the back opens up again soon!
Delicious! And lovely outdoor situation
Another home run for Benoit + his team. Consistently wonderful.
Good, but waitress was a little hasty and presumptuous. Felt rushed and patronized
Had the most perfect dinner Thursday. Lawrence took care of us, our service, food + bev were outstanding. Well done + thank you.
They took my deposit please contact me to get it back
Favourite spot - the escargot and zurich veal are my top dishes
One of my favorite places in the city! The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing cocktails, excellent food and service.
Good food however overpriced and we had to wait 20 minutes in the cold for our table (we had a reservation). We placed our order as soon as we were seated but our food took forever to come out and then when we were ordering dessert they told us we had to leave within 10 minutes to honor the next reservation. It was very annoying and outweighed the fact that the food was good.
They were out of two main items that rendered several items on the menu not possible for ordering, therefore substantially shrinking the menu options.
Music was outstanding, and food was even better
Great food. Great service. Love this place
We had a birthday party of 6 people in the cozy outdoor sidewalk chalet during the beginning of the snowstorm. It's isolated just for our table so it felt safe. Felt like being in a little chalet in Switzerland. An out of town experience without the hassle of traveling.
Love their service, their food, their raclette, fondues are fun for groups, the lobster bisque is delicious, everything on the menu is outstanding!!
Seems to have gone downhill. Waiter was standoffish and rude (for no reason- we were pleasant to him and ordered wine, an app, and mains). Food was still good, but not as good as it used to be. Prices seem to have increased somewhat significantly for some items.
Chill environment, really good food and wine!
It was so loud in there we couldn’t hear each other - and more people seemed annoyed about that, too. Staff are super rude. Fondue used to be so much better a few years ago. Won’t go back again.
I was charged $6 extra to add grilled shrimp to my salad and I was given four (4) grilled shrimps. So over a dollar each which seemed kind of ridiculous.
I made a reservation for three people and asked for a Raclette table, which they didn't give us... They had bigger tables but gave us one in which we felt uncomfortable because we were packed against the table next to us. Raclette was only cheese and one potato, no charcuterie as you would get in other places, so not te experience I was hoping for.
Quite rude service since our waitress lacked simple manners and pressured us to tip her when the bill came. Great food though...
Service nul voir inexistant! On se faisait un plaisir d’y retourner en famille . Je pense que le restaurant est devenu un tiroir-caisses!!!!!
