My wife and I recently dined at Selkirk Grille, our first time there.

The occasion was our anniversary, and we wanted a quiet, comfortable place to have a good chat. The service was first-rate, and the food was excellent. We were also surprised at the value - you can dine well here for significantly less than at a comparable restaurant downtown.

We'll be back.

My wife went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. We shared the 20 oz. ribeye platter. It came with an assortment of vegetables. Both the steak and the vegetables were done perfectly.
A bonus it was half price wine night (Thursdays).

The service was really slow, but the food was fantastic! We both had the pulled bison burger and it was absolutely incredible. The cocktails were yummy too, albeit a bit pricey at $9 for 1.5 oz.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the really awesome food at a fraction of the price I would have paid at many downtown eateries. It was very good value. The food was very tasty and the plates were put together with thought and style.

The service was not very good. 15 mins after we were seated we were greeted and our drink order was taken. Only half of the drinks came, had to ask for rest.
Took awhile to get our order taken.
Had to ask for coffee refill.
Our waiter came to check on us when we were almost finished our meals.

The food was good, but portions are small.

The atmosphere is great.

This is the second time I have been here and both times the food was good, but service was bad.

I usually love coming here and it was one of my favourites. I haven’t been in a very long time so I was excited to come back. Unfortunately it was not a good experience. We were seated at what has to be the worst table in the entire restaurant, which I could see past if everything else was superb, but it was not. The service was so incredibly slow, I thought they forgot about us numerous times. They weren’t neglectful, just very overwhelmed and spread thin (which took away from the relaxing vibes completely) The risotto was so undercooked, it was crunchy in the middle. I understand Christmas time is busy for restaurants, but there still needs to be standards and consistencies. Maybe hire more staff, or don’t take more reservations than can be handled? Anyhow, we left hungry and tired from waiting and disappointed.

Our small Christmas party for 10 was hosted by Selkirk Grille.

Pros:
- Really nice atmosphere. Outside there was Christmas Music. Inside was decorated nicely.
- Our waiter was friendly, and knowledgeable.
- Nice Menu options for Dinner.
-Nice plating.
-Cinnamon pudding bread was really good for dessert
-Friendly staff

Cons:
- Allergy issues- I think the ratings could have been a bit better, but our individual experience was tainted a bit by the fact that my celiac (Gluten free) wife, was very sick the next night due to something she ate. I know they take this seriously so it was likely just a one off mistake. I called them afterwards and let them know. They mentioned if I were to join them again, they might be able to compensate in some way. When this has happened in the past, usually they offered to reimburse part of the meal, or send a gift card. I wasn't looking for this, but it would have been nice to see them go out of their way to try to make it right. My wife was very careful and only ate foods which were exclusively said to be GF.
-The service was a slow. However, they were hosing a very large event the same night, so it's understandable.
-Food was pretty good. I felt some foods lacked a bit of flavor, but overall was okay.

I'd be willing to try it again, the venue certainly has potential, but was slightly disappointing overall on our specific night. My wife may have a hard time trusting given her allergic reaction, though.

Very good beef tenderloin, but waiter was very busy, so had no time to check to see if we needed anything. I had to grab him how stupid by to get some horseradish, and we are also not served bread with our mail. Beautiful place rather crowded and the table for two was quite small.
I would come back just because the food was so good. But more stuff is needed to look after that many people.

What a treat! Hard to find a restaurant that has it all! Great customer service , fabulous atmosphere, and great food! Well, we did! We decided to go early, 4 o'clock, after reserving, the restaurant called to see if we were ok with a lunch menu, which is more limited in choices. We were all fine with that. We were greeted by Rudy, who looked after us all for the rest of our meal. He was such a pleasure, and was very knowledgable about the menu items. The charcuterie tray was all local meats, cheeses and pates', the burger outstanding, and the wings certainly was a generous helping and very tasty. Since we had a very pregnant relative with us, Rudy made us both virgin drinks. What I also appreciated, was the fact we could hear each other when we were conversing, and didn't have to yell to be heard. Some of the new restaurants are just too loud! What a pleasure! We will definitely be back for supper some time. Check out tues dinner and a movie, it looks like it would be great! Thanks again Rudy! We want you next time too! Did not know this place was even here two days ago!

We love eating here! This time I had the Bison Schnitzel and it was very good. It had a lovely mushroom and bacon cream sauce. Others in my party had the Elk Striploin and it was the softest most flavorful cut of meat they had ever had. It was cooked to perfection! The menu is always creative and the staff is always a pleasure. We will be back again.

Went for lunch to celebrate my wife's birthday on Sunday, only to find out that brunch continues till 2 pm. Already had an early breakfast, but at that point to rush out (1 pm) to find a venue with a lunch menu wasn't worth it, so we picked the least breakfasty items on the menu.

A pity their website didn't warn us about the extended brunch. On the whole everything was okay, but $100.00 for breakfast is a little too much.

We booked here for my wife’s birthday brunch, and for the most part it was fairly disappointing. The restaurant is nice inside, but we were sat close to the front door and next to the bar vs some of the nicer parts of the room - a larger group at 10 of us, so it might have been necessary.

The server was quite abrupt and at times bordered on rude. Wouldn’t provide any insight on the dishes, and was condescending to anyone who asked a question. Several of our party remarked that he had decided not to put forth any effort given we had exceeded their mandatory gratuity party size.

The food was bland overall, especially the three of us that tried their meat hash. The children’s pancakes were over cooked, and 2 of the six were actually burnt.

Speaking of the kids, we had to request colouring and all they had to offer were old menus and crayons.

The place wasn’t busy, so there wasn’t an excuse for poor service and weakly delivered food. I wouldn’t recommend Selkirk after this experience, and it’s particularly disappointing given we were there to celebrate my wife’s birthday - a fact that I confirmed twice with staff ahead of time and yet there was no mention of it from the Selkirk at any point.

We went to Selkirk Grille for my Grandmother's 78th birthday brunch, as we had planned to visit Heritage Park for the day. Other members of my party enjoyed their menu choices more than I personally did, so everyone's different, but I was not very impressed with my meal. I ordered the Kale Caesar Salad with Poached Egg and found it underwhelming. The salad consisted of mainly romaine lettuce and a single poached egg. For the price ($14) I was expecting something along the lines of the Kale Caesar at Ten Foot Henry, or possibly even two poached eggs instead of just one? The restaurant was nearly empty so service was pretty good, but our server wasn't very friendly. Overall a lacklustre experience for the price, but my grandma had a fun time which is what really counts!

The day before our anniversary, I tried booking an outdoor table for our anniversary. I was told there were no outdoor tables available so I chose an indoor table. When we arrived, to my surprise, we were seated on the patio and immediately greeted with a glass of prosecco in honor of our anniversary! Our appetizers and entrees were amazing and dessert was great. Loved the outdoor music, and our server, Raphael, was incredible - very attentive and made fantastic recommendations for wine and entrees. We would definitely dine here again - incredible value for our dollar and delicious food.
