Best steaks we’ve ever gotten. Risotto is especially good, as all of the side dishes. Terrace has heaters and very nice atmosphere. Service is very professional and kind. Quality of food is superior, which leads to quite high cost when all items are included. Nevertheless, this is totally worth the money.

The food was exceptional and we had a great time. We would have preferred indoor seating since we had a reservation, but it seemed like there was a private event inside. Outdoor seating was still nice, just not what we had been expecting. Food and service were both top notch, the signature maple bourbon is what dreams are made of. We were celebrating a birthday and they made sure to acknowledge that. Great restaurant and experience.

We had an amazing experience. Single dad with two kids celebrating my daughters 12th birthday. She requested a great steakhouse so I suggested Selanne’s.
When making the reservation, I mentioned we were celebrating my daughter, name, birthday.
When we were seated, Nigel, the waiter greeted us and wished my daughter a happy birthday by name. That set the tone for a great evening as she felt incredibly special.
The evening was great with the chef periodically sending out special non requested items!! Wow! They exceeded all expectations!!
Kudos to Nigel, Julio and the rest of the staff!
Btw, they finished off the evening with a dessert with candles!
I highly recommend Selanne’s and will definitely be a regular!
Phenomenal describes the evening they delivered!

The meal we had here was possibly the best we’ve ever had. We came here during our honeymoon, the pea soup was amazing. The ribeye and surf and turf were so great as well. Everything we ordered was fantastic. Service was also perfect, everything was explained well and he made sure we were taken care of the whole time. Would absolutely recommend to a friend.

Well it was our 51’st anniversary occasion and all was just so right at this wonderful establishment. As hockey fans from Canada my wife and I sat at the bar and enjoyed the playoff game before our dinner. The bartenders were so much fun and very professional.
Our dinner was exceptional and the waiter impeccable with his flawless attention.
The only regret is that we did not get to see the owner Mr. Teemu Selanne who was with his family that night. A very special hello to you sir No.8. We will be back one day and hope to see you then. I did meet you in 2013 at the Joe Louis arena, a time when my 8 year old grandson had a tournament there.
Regards,
Howard and Hedi Borden

The busboy was super helpful and attentive to our needs as well making sure we were never with out anything we wanted. The ambiance was just perfect on the veranda for our brunch.

Great food in an awesome location. Selanne's is always a treat for dinner - we were delighted to learn of the Sunday Brunch. The full bar is open, so get the Hat Trick - best cocktail in the OC. For brunch the Chicken and waffles were wonderful (oh that rosemary butter) and the Poutine was great. I need to go back to try the hash browns au gratin. Strict close at 2:00 for brunch so they can be ready for dinner - so don't dawdle. This brunch is a real treat.

Very good food, my wife had an awesome tenderloin but my ribeye lacked flavor. Nor did the server ask if it was ok since i left 3/4 of it. And a music change to something a little more suiting to fine dining would have been great. 80's music isn't very romantic.

We had an online reservation and when we arrived at 8:30, the restaurant was close to empty but they sat us near the noisy kitchen with the two large TV screens right next to us. We didn’t want to fuss so we sat there. The waitress was way too casual for an upscale restaurant. I definitely agree with another recent review that the food was expensive and salty.

We had a wonderful brunch celebrating a friend's birthday. The only hiccup we had was the steaks on the steak and egg menu item both came out well overcooked. It then took more time than we thought necessary to replace them given the restaurant wasn't busy. They were excellent the second time around and didn't take away from our experience but we were just surprised by that oversight.
