Great atmosphere and delicious food. The staff was engaging and so nice. Love this place and highly recommend!
good food - oysters were great and so was the bouillabaisse. Its a very small space so we sat outside and it was too cold.
The crudo special was spectacular, the oysters lovely, and the cocktails delicious. Highly recommended!
Great food, great view from the window seat, great waitstaff!
Our meal was exceptional. High quality, fresh ingredients. We came to Boston to visit our college student daughter and brought her here as a special treat. We could not have been happier with our choice. Yes, it’s pricey, but oh, so good. If you’re looking to splurge on amazing seafood, this is your place.
Very good food. Super pricey for modest amount. Excellent oysters.
Delicious food, lovely restaurant and super lively on a Thursday night!
The service has really become poor. It used to be such a great place! We walked out with a bill of $450, for just 3 people and only a couple drinks. The wait staff was very rude, especially for such a sneakily expensive restaurant.
Last vacation lunch
Our meal at Select was outstanding. Delicious oysters, tuna tartare, swordfish and sea bream. Shout out for great service to Ben.
Great food and service as always!
Dined there three times now and will go back next week. Really fresh seafood. Tried various things over three times and all are delicious.
Excellent food, great service, loved eating outside. The tower with island creek oysters, shrimp cocktail, crab, sushi was incredible.
Exceptions quality seafood and service. Excellent energy from patrons and employees. Received great recommendations on Oysters and fish dishes.
Consistently one of the best restaurants in the city.
Oh wow. What an experience. The food was exquisite and every dish exceeded our expectation, in terms of flavor and technique. Very good service and attentive staff! We will go back, again and again…..
best creative seafood menu in Boston! Excellent wine & cocktails.
We had a fab time!! Great food and great oysters. The anchovies/ tuna/ salmon-
Phenomenal oysters but apart from that the lunch menu was so limited with few mid price options. We did some apps and all the options were tasty but would have loved something between an app and a dinner entree.
Select oyster bar never disappoints! The best oysters ever, I like to get the sampler. The ceviches are also so delicious and they have some of my favorite cocktails in Boston!
Amazing place. Great seafood menu. Excellent service
Food was amazing as always, great service!
Food and staff excellent! Outstanding oysters. Great seafood. Nice wine list.
Excellent oysters and crudo.
Family trip to Boston- delicious oysters….we don’t get ones as fresh where we live! Such a treat!
Amazing seafood! The best crisp we have ever had!
Lunch in the sidewalk seating space was delightful, without excessive traffic noise. The seafood was fresh and delicious and the service attentive without being intrusive. The high prices were not out of line for the quality of the ingredients and the high rent location. Would recommend this for a special occasion.
One of the best restaurants in Boston. Service is Amazing.
Overpriced with mediocre food, service and drinks. For the price, the wine pours were quite small and the cocktails were filled with shaved ice.. Looked more like a snowcone with minimal liquid. This is a bit frustrating for a $16 drink that has three sips worth of liquid. The food overall was okay (Shrimp and crab claws were good) but the avocado toast was the worst ive ever tasted and seen. It tasted and looked like they took the Guac from Chipotle and spread it on to a piece of wheat bread. I wouldve expected better... Service was okay, bar tender was sort of friendly when he gave us the check but seemed irritable up to that point. This place has a great rep amongst others, but i will not be going back.
Friendly staff, delicious and fresh seafood. Highly recommend!
Great service - knowledgeable and patient.
Amazing fresh delicious food.
Food was great as was the service. However, the noise level was high. Difficult to have a conversation.
Saturday oysters at 5:30 pm. Great selection fun and knowledgeable staff. Great location. A real hidden gem.
Excellent service in a super slick and cool spot. Fantastic oysters and wine. We had a great time!
The food was amaaaazing! Everything delicious, but be prepared for high noise levels. This is not romantic evening of whispers, this is shouting and laughing across the table while eating the best raw bar around.
Best service at the bar I’ve had in years. An absolute dream team!
Outstanding mixologist. Oysters were fantastic!! Didn’t want to leave!
Best seafood preparations in Boston. Excellent cocktails and well chosen wine list. Become a regular!
Amazing oysters and seafood. Very good drinks!!!
We love Select. Kate (our server) was awesome! She’s the best. The food was yummy and she picked out great oysters. The lobster roll was super yummy!!
