This was my first visit to Selena's and it was a very enjoyable experience. The food and service were great. The views inside looking out to the rolling creek was beautiful. We had a reservation for 5pm, we were seated at the first table by the entrance, behind the plexiglass where patrons enter. There were no other patrons in the entire restaurant at that time. I was disappointed and asked to be moved to a table with a view, and we quickly relocated to a lovely table. Cannot understand why the least desirable table in the entire restaurant was not saved until the restaurant was at full capacity.
Always good. Brunch, lunch or dinner
Had a fabulous girls lunch celebrating a friend’s birthday. The $2/$4 mimosas were a fun way to start! The dining room had a cozy fire in the fire space on that cold January day. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The only bummer thing to note is that the lunch menu isn’t available on Sunday until after 2:30PM. Not much of a “breakfast menu” gal, but was glad I could at least get a Tavern Salad. The rest room was a little messy, but it was a busy Sunday @Selena’s - not enough to lose a star. Will be back again soon.
If I could have I would have given 6 stars. Incredible experience beginning to end!
Our Ladies Brunch was amazing this weekend due to the Beignets and Bloody Marie’s from this Selena’s - it seems we can’t get those things duplicated properly here in Louisville but Selena’s has pulled it off perfectly!!! Thanks and we will be baaaack!
The service was excellent, and the food was fantastic. 10/10 highly recommend.
Good. We will be back. Great for brunch. Try the beigneits.
Good food, really fast service. Almost too fast on a date night. Perfect for a family meal. Not the best parking situation.
Service and food were outstanding for lunch. Our office group were all happy with the food and service. Nice menu for lunch...attentive wait staff. Will definately go back whenever we can. The Tavern Salad is delicious.
Great spot for lunch and seating next to the fireplace was outstanding! Food was delicious. First time there and will be back!
I have eaten brunch at Selena's several times. The quality of food and value is five star, just don't get Jack as a server. He acted like he didn't want to be there.
Service outstanding. Very loud once the dinner crowd arrived. Food average.
Food was very good. Waitress was fantastic. We were seated by the windows looking out overlooking the patio but it was still pleasantly warm. Only complaint was the pasta could have used a bit more sauce but the shrimp were cooked perfectly and flavor was really good.
Just a great place for lunch or dinner. My go to place in Louisville.
Selena’s is always a great place for lunch or dinner!
What's not to like ? The perfect place for a date.
Food was Excellent! From the Brie and Salad to my perfectly cooked steak all was to notch. Maria was one of the best servers I have had in years.
Great food and even better service. Our server was wonderful and I’m so sad that I can’t remember her name to give her proper credit. The hash brown casserole is unbeatable. The ONLY thing that this restaurant could improve would be the brunch drink menu. Mimosas and bloody Mary’s are the most common brunch drinks but a wider variety to choose from would be great.
Great food and service. Great prices for brunch
As always, everything at Selena's from the food to the ambience was excellent.
New Year’s Eve
Our waitress was very attentive. The food was good, but it didn’t blow me away. The restaurant is very cute and had the perfect noise level. I’ll definitely be back and I look forward to trying the brunch one day too.
Always a go to place to celebrate everything from a birthday to just good time together. Selena’s is consistently good. A place we can always count on for being excellent in all categories
Highly recommend this out of the way place. Excellent food.
Cocktails and food were not good. Much better experience and value at lunch.
Great place! I'd never been there before, but it looked good and I was able to make reservations for the day after Christmas for Brunch. Service was excellent, the interior was very nice, and the food was great and fast! Would definitely recommend!
We had a very nice family dinner. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We did get a little chilly by the door to the patio. We had eaten here several times and wanted to take our children there who were visiting for the holidays.
The only issue was that the table where we were seated was sticky and unclean. However, when we pointed that out, the server was very pleasant and took care of it right away.
Mid afternoon early dinner - was quiet overall, service good, food good and reliable.
The place is nice and service was fair but the quality of food was laking. Why would any place use popcorn shrimp in their signature dishes (jambalaya and etouffee).
We had the best service ever from our waitress even though the place was packed!
Glad we made reservation. The restaurant was packed and there was barely any room to move. Our server was great and the food was good. We didn't stay long because the noise level was unbearable. Parking was a nightmare
Food is always great! Outstanding service from Brian also. Lovely atmosphere
Food is delicious, staff is friendly. A table of folks here and there can be loud, but still worth the trip.
Food and service were very good. Noise level was deafening. Will return when outdoor seating is available. Would recommend anyone who doesn't mind the noise.
We are fans of Selena's. I have not tried everything as I am the kind that reorders 2 or 3 of the same dishes at a restaurant. My husband is the fan of the shrimp & grits, while I love the fried green tomatoes. We both enjoy the spinach/artichoke dip very much,
Such a lovely evening! Great Food, Fabulous Service, all-around wonderful experience.
Always great food and service. Selena's is our go-to!
Great Food, good selection, excellent staff. Loved it as always.
