Creole Bread Pudding
Our version of this Kentucky favorite served with warm Bourbon Brandy sauce.
Lightly breaded, crisp, and golden.
Birthday Dinner was wonderful food is always great here.
We have dined here for brunch several times and have never been disappointed. The food is very good and the service is excellent. The restaurant is so popular that parking can be a challenge when at full capacity.
Waiter forgot our bread and husbands baked potato
We had the same waitress the last time I came- too bad I’m awful with names but she is WONDERFUL. Both times I had her. Outside of that, every other time I come, the service is always great, and the food is always better. I’m happy the patio is open now too.
Our first visit. The atmosphere is fantastic. We had brunch and the food was suburb. Their Beignets were as good as the French Quarter in New Orleans We plan on returning for a lunch and dinner.
Service and food were both top notch.
The food & service was excellent.
Nice evening outdoors with friends. Needed 13 more characters.
We stopped at the first time at Selena's at Willow Lake Tavern. It is a very charming place. The menu was quite varied and prices were reasonable. The service was very good, even though the restaurant is a bit short of servers at the moment, what with COVID and all. We had the chicken salad sandwich with fries. Two thumbs up. We will definitely go back and try other items on the menu!
This was my first time here but it won't be the last! The service and food was good!!
VERY loud and crowded, no simple courtesy. Wait staff was great, food was tasty but atmosphere was not near the quality we have come to expect. Felt very out of control.
Always love dining here ! Staffing is short so please be patient with the hard working staff and remember to tip them well ! They show up work hard with a smile and are working extra hard during these difficult times when no one wants to work !
Great food, nice atmosphere, service was a little slow, but it was a busy night. Friendly staff. Had a nice anniversary celebration!
Very busy during lunch however with a reservation didn’t wait at all go my table. Server was very polite and attentive without hovering. Meal was delicious, fish and chips were perfectly prepared and the gumbo was the best I’ve ever had. Will definitely be revisiting Selena’s again.
We have been patrons for many years and were anxious to return after being off the restaurant circuit for a year. The food was as delicious as always. Unfortunately, they seem to be struggling with staff (not surprising). The service was not up to the standard that we have experienced in the past.
Great food! Everything we had was delicious from appetizer to dessert! It’s a small area so it’s tight if they are busy, but they have a lot of outdoor seating as well. We will definitely be back!
Great place!!! The fridge was wonderful and the service was great. It's my got to place for a girls lunch or brunch.
Overall it was very good. Crab Rolls and the Mushrooms were awesome. I also had the shrimp and grits, not a fan. The grits were very "pasty" as if they were left over from breakfast, the bacon wrapped on the shrimp was not cooked enough. Service was good but it was a bit dark inside. Still would definitely recommend it if you're looking for great cajun food.
Wonderful New Orleans style food, went for an anniversary luncheon,
We were able to sit outside and it was perfect weather. Service was very good, a little slow initially taking our drink orders, but the starter and food came quickly and was hot.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Had a great experience today! Great food and great drinks. Always a nice time for Sunday brunch.
Selena's is our absolute favorite place to eat in all of the Louisville area. It's always great food, with good service. It is a special treat when the weather permits to eat outside!
I always ask to be in Brian's section...he is fantastic!
ow--what an excellent restaurant! Great food in huge portions and great service!!! Reasonably priced.
Such a great place, love the ambiance. Celebrated our 15 year anniversary. The food was delicious and the service was excellent!
Outstanding food, outstanding price. Possibly my new favorite place in Louisville.
beautiful weather, sat outside an enjoyed an awesome dinner
Food was wonderful but service was way too fast. Ordered Drinks, appetizers and main course as other server requested. Appetizers came almost immediately. After several minutes the drinks and mai course arrived almost simultaneously.
Very good meal Babur not an enjoyable experience.
Always a great place to eat. Will wait for warmer weather so we can eat outside next time.
Enjoyed our pasta lunch on the front patio. The back patio is especially beautiful; it has a waterfall and koi pond with huge fish. Very relaxing. Food was delish and service was terrific.
Charming setting, food choices are varied and three entrees we tried were well prepared and tasty. This restaurant , feels like a rural neighborhood place to meet friends and share a meal with good value.
Park across the street in MidCity Mall. Very easy!
I enjoyed my blackened salmon meal. It was delicious.
great service....great food....great atmosphere.
We took some out of town family members that were visiting fir Derby weekend. I will start off with, we love Selena’s, and I have never had a bad meal until this day, I ordered the Chicken piccata and it was very bland. And also the garlic toast for oysters appetizer was cold. Outside of that, everything was great! We did eat outside, nice afternoon for outdoor dining.
Food is excellent. Selena’s is my favorite brunch in Louisville. The Service is usually 5⭐️top notch- but this day I cam only rate a 2 ⭐️
Awesome service and food! Great at accommodating my friends and I.
Get the hash brown casserole. You won't be sad you did.
Selena's is our go-to place because the food NEVER disappoints and the staff are amazing. No matter the season, the ambiance and atmosphere are wonderful. The food always comes out out, delicious and satisfying. Love, Selena's!
Outdoor seating at Selena's is always the best! This is your go-to for a new tucked away spot with great food - and don't leave without trying the bread pudding.
