Excellent on every way, great service and fantastic food
The seafood did not taste fresh. The lobster roll was over price and lacking flavor.
This was our 2nd time at Select. We went a few years ago and it was good but it has since exceeded our expectations. The food and service was excellent. The menu has a nice variety. From our appetizers to our entrees, each dish was created with beautiful detail in mind to flavors. Possibly now one of my favorite Boston restaurants!
Fantastic as always
Fresh flavorful and delightful to eat. Excellent!
Exceptional service, drinks & food.
Food Great. Service Adequate. Noise level seated outside was fairly high
We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant! The seafood tower was incredible.
Possibly the best swordfish I ever had. Crudo was also out of this world and the wine pour sizes were way better than average. We love this place!
Great seafood- an oyster lovers dream
Food is fantastic, brought guests from overseas and they loved it. Seating outside was a little uncomfortable due to extreme noise from a truck...but with COVID I still appreciate the ability to eat outdoors. Would come again for certain and highly recommend!
Food and service was great but it’s so crowded and loud in there
Terrific place. The food was phenomenal, and so were the drinks (Negroni) and the wine (Chablis). The only criticism is that they had no dessert on the menu, which I think is a missed opportunity for the restaurant and a drawback for those customers (me, for example) who have a sweet tooth.
Awesome seafood tower! Great drinks. Outdoor seating with amazing weather. Outstanding service - all pretty much wraps it up!!!
Amazing service, food and quality!!
GREAT FOOD ALWAYS! GREAT SERVICE ALWAYS! Fun to eat outside!
Select is our favorite oyster bar and so much more: Fantastic wine list and cocktails, great seafood with a few things for carnivores,
Just superb in every way. Best seafood in Boston
Great meal from start to finish. Food and service were excellent.
One of the best places in Boston for fresh and tasty seafood.
We celebrated my sister in law’s birthday and had a great time. Food was delicious, everything was very fresh and well seasoned. A place to recommend.
Oysters was fresh and the sauce was good. Was very pleased with everything we ordered.
Always a great experience! Select has been around for a while and while new places keep popping up, we keep coming back. They have the freshest selection of oysters and seafood, the cocktails are creative and delicious, and the wine menu is incredibly well curated. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Diners with food intolerances: I have an annoyingly long list of them (gluten, dairy, the alliums) and they are always happy to accommodate. The inside feels like you could have stepped into the original Select in Paris. It's loud on a Saturday, but you always have the option of their indoor patio out back or their street patio, which they will hopefully continue having even after covid. Go check it out! Highly recommend!
Disappointed in Oyster quality. Had much better oysters in several other Boston restaurants. Tables for 2 are too small for two people and food.
Good vibes for sure. I splurged on raw seafood. The ceviche wasn’t my favorite but everything else I had was great. I would good back but nothing compelling me to go every time I want seafood if you know what I mean.
Probably the freshest seafood and overall amazing dining experiences in Boston!!! Ben was amazing and we can’t wait to go back!
Restaurant is too noisy. Was placed at the bar with 3 people and so we explained it is hard to talk. We were moved to a table. Felt restaurant did not space out the seatings more efficiently. Always saw empty table. Especially the long one in front for 6 people was vacant for over an hour. Very expensive!
The service was exceptional and as always the wine list was exactly what you need for a mid day raw bar pairing
The food was good. We did not receive one of our appetizers and the table was way to small for our group.
Such a wonderful dinner! This was probably one of the better meals I've had around Boston in the past years. Fresh, delicious and the service was superb. Would highly recommend this for a special event
Food and Drinks were delicious and great ambience. My only complaint is that the chairs were not comfortable!
My husband and I shared several small plates. The seafood quality is outstanding. The server - Katie D - was very attentive. Select was hands down our best experience while in Boston.
Fabulous food and service.
Great bar, menu, people!
Food was outstanding, no doubt about it. Fresh seafood and you must try the yellowtail crudo! The passion fruit in the dish makes it explode with flavor. We tried several items on the menu and all were delicious.
It is a small space. Had a party of three and were seated at a two person table with an extra chair. We kept bumping chairs and arms with the tables around us and felt cramped in. Other than that, food and service were great and worth the visit to Select!
Everything was perfect. From tie cocktails to perfectly shucked fresh oysters Great selection of fresh shellfish
Excellent bar, oysters, entrees.
I love select oyster. Great food. Wonderful staff
Mass production is never good in a restaurant. Your shredded lobster salad is a disgrace. The halibut was not cooked well and it had too much garnishment.
Food was great as always. First time back since the pandemic. A little disappointed because they charged an upfront 20% service fee. I have seen restaurants did that with large parties. We were only a party of four. I always paid a 20% plus tips. But an upfront charge felt differently.
