Delicious food and great service. Was nicely decorated for Christmas. Very festive. I love the 1979 salad and the gumbo.

The food was great as always. We had the Creole omelet my favorite and our friend had the Belgium waffles.
Service was great and we chose a time it wasn’t overly crowded.

The food wasn't very good. Things were cold when they came out and a few things were burnt. I probably wouldn't go back.

Host was very welcoming and accommodated our request for a booth. Service from wait staff was excellent - attentive but not intrusive. Didn't realize Tuesday evening was half price bottles of wine - what a bonus. Food was very good.

My family and I had a wonderful dinner at Selena's. We ate items from both the regular menu and the specials. Each item was well plated and delicious. Portions were not overly large but we did take home a couple boxes!
We sprung for desserts and thoroughly enjoyed the bread pudding and the lava cake!
We will definitely return for another meal.

Took a friend, with a hearing aid, who doesn't like really loud tinny noises. Tables around us were chatty but I found it very satisfactory. Excellent waitress recognized the problem and announced specials near my friend, so he could hear. Food was beyond our expectations and we found the tablecloth at lunch to be a step above. Will return.

Love the brunch here! Good value for the amount of food. We were seated near the window so even though it was a rainy day it still had a nice ambience. I was torn between two items and the waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and helped me in deciding. I will be back!

This was my first time having lunch at Selina's, I was not disappointed.
Both of us had the fish and chips which were outstanding and the portion size was huge.
I have been to Selena's a few times before for dinner and once for their outstanding brunch which is available on Saturday and Sunday.
I recommend this restaurant highly.
