We were greeted and seated promptly even arriving early by 5 minutes. Waiter not overbearing but helpful and attentive. Good mix on the menu no difficulty finding something for everyone. Serving nicely timed and never rushed. Served warm and well cooked

I would have to try their lunch menu but the brunch menu was no good. I had the poached eggs and it wasn't runny and the spinach was no bueno.

As always Maison Selby offers a perfect dining experience. I have never had a bad dining experience. Every single item I've ever ordered has been one of those "I have to have that again!" dishes. Amazing cocktail selection as well. Highly recommended.

The three of us had a lovely time. Great staff, enjoyed the food though the frites were substandard. Turned out to be a windy, chilly evening on the patio but the staff strove to keep us comfortable with propane heaters. Would return.

We've dined here before, so we know what to expect. The French onion soup was spectacular as always. My two dining companions had boeuf Bourguignon. They have both had it before, once at Maison Selby and once at Biffs. They said the quality had deteriorated and was a lot more fatty than before. I had the special half Cornish hen, which was excellent. The green beans were cooked to perfection and the side potato salad was fresh and not overly dressed. We had lemon tarts and creme brulee for dessert. Both were excellent, in particular the lemon tart which was perfectly balanced between sweetness and tartness. The wafer thin merengue pieces added a nice crunchy touch. The service was ok, a bit spotty, but everything came hot from the kitchen. We'll return, but we're not in any rush to dine there again. If we had a five-star experience, we'd dine at Maison Selby more often.

Not our first time at an O&B establishment so we had some expectations and they were met. Though the menu is somewhat limited we enjoyed every course. A big shout out to our server (this past Sunday 7 PM ) who was lots of fun and very professional. The Coq au Vin, burger with frites, and trout were all excellent. Good wine list too. It’s tight seating however so it’s good to be aware of that.

I want to love their cocktails, but after several visits here, I still find them very strong...and I'm a regular cocktail drinker. They have such a diverse cocktail menu with great profiles, it's unfortunate these profiles are drowned out by their overbearing alcohol content. The most basic cocktail I've ordered at this restaurant was a Caesar, and it was probably the worst I've had, I'm sorry to say.

As usual, ambiance and service is top notch.

Pain au lait, coq au vin and boeuf bourguignon were superb. Unfortunately, the smoked salmon was bland and the escargots were under salted. Also, they didn't have any features for the day, which I found surprising.

Wish I could have given a more positive review.

Overall had a very pleasant dining experience foodwise, servicewise and ambiencewise. I had requested indoor dining which I did get, but it was in the room which was used to access the outdoor patio, so the door to the patio was open the entire time. The temperature was a balmy due to the humidity, but I guess the upside of sitting there was that there was no one else dining in that particular area. I may not have been able to have been accomodated in a more inside room, but I would have preferred that if it were possible.

The food was delicious! The service, superb! Unfortunately, the room was very, very warm and it made it difficult to feel comfortable. As well the music was so loud, we could not have a conversation-just wanted to hurry and leave asap.

Had a wonderful dinner on the patio service was great. We were served by Jason. Had the green salad with herbs .
We both had steak frites and red wine .
Very good . Creme Brulle . That was excellent. All very French. We felt like we were back in Montreal, where we lived a long time ago
Highly recommend this restaurant.

We dined for my wife's birthday, and we were very well taken care of. There were too many cocktails to choose from, and the ones we received were delicious. The apps came to the table lightning quick, and were all delicious. We especially enjoyed the beef tartar. The entrees were amazing, particularly the coq au vin. Our server, Justin, was stellar. Compliments to the whole team on our experience!

Portions are smallish, but the food is tasty. Service was hovering for drinks, but then forgot to bring things like cutlery. The ambiance is lovely in a restored mansion full of Toronto history.

Brunch was delicious, service was exemplary. Brunch prices were reasonable.

It can get a little loud when the place is full at Sunday Brunch as this is a heritage building and not much inside to dampen the noise. However perfect for when you are going with friends

Attentive, friendly and welcoming staff. Food is delicious! Had eggs Hemingway, eggs were poached perfectly and croissant was really flakey. Salad had nice acidity. Frites are nicely seasoned and come with a delicious lemon and rosemary aioli. Always happy with food and experience here!
