Selanne Steak Tavern
Best steak on the planet, exellent service and relaxed feeling even I was dining with my 13 yrs old son.
Food was fantastic, service was great and we were seated upstairs in a quiet area for my wife's birthday. It was a great evening.
First time here. We enjoyed it a lot. Service was top notch. Food was excellent. Very small and intimate restaurant. Highly recommended.
The food was very good and the service was excellent. We came on a Tuesday at 5 PM and there wasn’t anybody else in our dining room. A little bit lonely but if we wanted more company we could’ve sat by the bar. The best part of my experience was leaving, I met Corey Perry at the door! That made it all worth it! I love the fact that the Ducks come and eat there on a regular basis. Awesome experience!
Wonderful relaxed SoCal atmosphere in a sophisticated setting. Servers were attentive, friendly and chatty if you wanted them to be. The bar has several TV's if you are a single diner looking to be entertained. We shared the Lord Stanley Wagyu Chop, which is PLENTY for two and it was stunningly good. The a-la-carte dishes almost stole the show they are so good, the mixed mushrooms were full of layers of flavor, the mashed potatoes are silky smooth and the brussel sprouts were carmelized in a vinegar reduction. We didn't order appetizers and couldn't finish it all. The only thing we wanted was more by-the-glass wine options but that did not impact our evening.
Great food, great guest service. It was a bit to loud for a romantic dinner. Had a hard time having a conversation with my wife.
Enjoyed dinner here to celebrate our 41st anniversary. Table in the bar area was small but food and service was good. Steaks are always delicious. The wedge salad is beautifully prepared and very good. Butternut squash soup is outstanding. Carrots were a nice addition to the menu and very tasty.
We had an amazing meal to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Scallops were the best ever! Everything was delicious. Will definitely be back. Loved the decor and vibe. Very cool!
Wonderful experience for my Husband’s birthday. Service, food, wine, was all excellent.
Never a disappointing time at Selanne Steak Tavern! I live in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada and have come to dine each visit to California. Service and food is all amazing!
Service was great!! And steak was worth the price!!! Also had a great selection of wine with prices being very reasonable!
I requested a nice quiet table for our anniversary and they definitely delivered. The service was superb and the restaurant was very charming. They even decorated our desert plate with a Happy Anniversary message. My only complaint was that our steak was a bit tough for a filet. We got the 12 oz steak and it just wasn’t the famous sluce through like butter filet you would hope for at anvery expensive steak house. The rest of the food was amazing. Live the coffee and donuts. Overall a beautiful date!
Great evening and food and service was so good, that we went back for Sunday Brunch
My friend and I came here for dinner, and everything was fantastic! We had the Brussel Sprouts appetizer and the Wedge salad, both were absolutely delicious. We also shared the scallops. Our server was amazing, on top of everything and knew his stuff. I will definitely be back!
Over-cooked my steak (ordered rare, came medium). Server never seemed to be around and had to ask for him twice. Didn’t have the vintage of wine we ordered on the menu. Still charged the same price for everything.
Amazing place. The decor and the ambience were spectacular as well as the Tuscan vibe with waterfalls and galleries. The food was outstanding as was the service. Highly recommended
Birthday celebration for our daughter-great experience for all!
It was a perfect evening for a birthday celebration. It is pricey but worth the splurge.
Great place with great staff, fast service with good food. High prices for our economy but absolutely worth to visit. 9/10.
Everything we ordered was AMAZING from the chicken and waffles to the bananas fosters french toast. The staff is extremely friendly and the service was outstanding. Do yourself a favor and visit Selanne Steak Tavern!!
Beautiful location. I booked reservations for outdoor seating only to be placed at a small table next to the bar. It was loud and the individuals at the bar definitely didn't help with the ambiance in celebrating my 11 year anniversary. We were also disappointed when we ordered our dishes only to be told after the fact that neither were available (lobster & Waygu fillet). The food we ended up with was lovely but for what we paid I have been more satisfied attending other steak houses. Most likely will not revisit. Seems like a local place for a higher end community and seemed more like a sports bar with nice food.
I think if we weren’t seated right next to the bar we would have had a much better experience — but I was very pleased with management clearing out the mass of people that was collecting around the bar without us having to ask. The service and food were excellent, great quality, cooked to perfection. We’ll be back to try more of the menu, everything looked so good.
The food was incredible. The wagyu skirt steak has officially ruined all other steak for me. The whiskey cocktails I had were not great in my opinion, and I am a whiskey drinker, but my wife had the hat trick and that was very good.
Food was mediocre. They had run out of a few dishes by the time we arrived for our 700 reservation. We were seated by the bar which became very loud as the night wore on.
Absolutely wonderful dinner. Every item was delicious! The patio was warm and cozy even on a cool rainy evening.
My rib steak was ordered medium rare. It came between medium and medium well. Also we were warned that the plates are very hot. Indeed, they were.
But the food was luke warm.
Wagyu beef tartare was great just wish the kettle chips were bigger so i could scoop the beef up! The steak was phenomenal we got prime filet- Sides were excellent
Highly recommend mac n cheese! Will be coming back to try the lord stanley 🤤
Outstanding food and service. Great if special occasion!
Please note that this review is based on seating in the bar area. the other areas of the restaurant were much quieter. I prefer the nice tables near the bar area with the hum of chatter and music.
EXCELLENT SERVICE.....EXCELLENT FOOD....EXCELLENT ATMOSPHERE
Our server was WONDERFUL, and present. I even noticed him waiting until my husband finished speaking before he approached the table to check in on us. We will definitely be back! Thank you for helping me make my husbands birthday perfect!
Took my honey here for his birthday. Food was amazing as was the service and ambiance. Will definitely return
Good points: friendly waiter, well level of meal, easy ambience.
Bad points: meal was over salted, Manager tried to offer outsite terass although We made reservation in Restaurante and with baby.
Great service and atmosphere. Food was exceptional. This is probably our fifth time to Selanne's and it a is always simply wonderful.
A great special occasion restaurant. Very high end food prep and service. Correspondingly priced very high end. My wife and I did have two glasses of wine each but with tip the tab was close to $300. It would not preclude us coming back when we can afford it -- the $150 gift card certainly helped.
Our server was exceptionall, food was surperior. It was an amazing experience due to the fact that I had my Finnish bosses with me and they chose this restaurant due to Teemu. They got to meet him in person and we were able to take photos.
Thank you again!
Amazing meal and exceptional service!
Our server was a guy who has been there since it opened and he was awesome. Food was awesome. Great experience.
Food delicious. A bit noisy for fine dining. Loved it none the less.
