Such a wonderful meal as always. I've been a number of times over the years and will continue going back for many more. There are few great French restaurants in Toronto but this is one of the best. Service, quality, food, flavours, variety, and atmosphere are all top. It's certainly is a must go place in Toronto. More...

Fantastic brunch at the cutest place ever! Gorgeous patio, I felt like I was in France! The french toast was TO DIE FOR and I loved the imported cider from Normandy. Definitely need to come back for dinner, the rest of the menu looked incredible. My boyfriend had the croque madame (not pictured) and it was huge and a flavour overload! He definitely made the right choice, it was so hard to decide! More...

Best patio. Great service time and again. Attentive to dairy/nut allergies, and rather knowledgeable of every ingredient in their dishes. Petit filet mignon, onion soup, moules á la Provençal, Cotês de Provence rosé & tartare de saumon. Creme brûlée. More...

What a wonderful surprise this Alsatian bistro was! A great place to spend a leisurely brunch on a Saturday afternoon. Delightful French-speaking staff, and food was top notch. On a warm day, ask to be seated in the back... you would swear you were in Europe. Massive healthy portions and very good value for money, for food made with great care and passion. Don't miss the "library" of wine proudly on display on your way to the washrooms downstairs! More...

I don't know a lot about French food in general, but I really enjoyed my experience here. The food, the ambience, the music played (although my French date heavily disagreed on this). Reminded me of having dinner in a cute Parisian restaurant. If I can break it down, I'd rate the food 3 stars and the ambience/service 4 stars. For food/drinks, here's what we had: 1) Bouillabaise à la rascasse - Which is a very intense soup with some seafood items in it. Although for the price, I would hope there's more than 1 scallop, 1 mussel, some fish pieces and lots of croutons. I did enjoy the flavor though. 2) Steak Frite - it came in a form of a burger, which is very unexpected. I didn't have any of it, but my date didn't enjoy it very much. 3) Assiette De Fromage - of course going on a date with a French, you'd end the course with the cheese platter! I really enjoyed the platter, and loved all the cheese we had, which are all from Quebec and Ontario! I also really liked the fact that they had honey comb as a side. Definitely a plus there! All in all, I'd probably be back for a quick drink/snack but most probably not for the main course. More...

Went to the bistro for date night. It’s one of our favourite downtown restaurants. It’s a Toronto restaurant landmark for sure. We both had the endive salad and then resorted to our favourite dishes, Mussels w/frites and Duck. They were both delicious as usual. Our server was refreshing friendly and prompt. Great to have an established goto restaurant in the city that keeps on giving great quality food.m&r More...

Special occasion restaurant with tasty French cuisine. They have limited but decent options for veg eaters. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Portions are small but the food is rich. Larger men in our party thought the risotto size wasn't enough. Had the sweet potato croquettes. You need an app salad to get enough food. French onion soup was a disappointment, too much cheese and not enough onion More...

Fantastic experience! Went for a brunch with a party of three; it was a wonderful experience. Food was tasty and rich (though we wished there was more of it), the wine list was incredibly impressive, and the atmosphere was wonderful. Maybe it was due to it being a busy brunch shift, or maybe the server was new, but our server seemed a bit flustered/was not incredibly attentive/not very informed of the menu. But other than the service experience it was a great brunch. I will probably dream of that goat cheese and herb omelette in the weeks to come. More...

My favorite French restaurant in the city. Makes you feel like you are back in Paris. The staff is always polite and knowledgeable about the menu. Tried the Steak Tartare for the firs time and it was heavenly. Although, I wish they would bring back the traditional escargot (instead of the puff pastry). Keep it simple. That's what makes this place so great. Classic French and Consistent. More...

Highly recommend the deer with red wine sauce and braised cabbage, it was incredibly tender. The duck liver parfait and house bread with butter were also soooooo good. My friend got the house speciality of pork, sausage, and cabbage... didn’t really enjoy it as it was rather bland even with the mustard provided separately. More...

Great place for any meals of the day, including brunch during the weekend. French ambiance as in Lyon’s restaurants with a terrasse in front of the restaurant. Servers take good care of you and give you two types of menu: a 58-page-wine-menu, only paid by the bottle, and the à la carte menu, where you can order wine by glasses, and beers. Family oriented on weekends out of peek hours.Beef tartare is delicious topped with some pistachio, sitting near drops of homemade mayonnaise with a side of a sort bread/biscotte, and fries on another plate ($19.95). 5oz glass of red wine from Château de l’Éspérance, considered as a premium wine on the à la carte menu ($15.75). The combination of tartare and that wine is flavourful. The little plate is for bread like in French restaurants.Île flottante is one of the classic French dessert. This one is smooth and creamy topped with salted pearl caramel on a side of fresh raspberries, and floating on a crème anglaise ($12.95). Always take a dessert wine with any dessert dish, Sauternes is my great advice for all of you who wish to eat pastry at home with close ones, because it is sweet and fruity, and goes well with all kind of dessert, or by itself. Here it is, served in a 2oz glass fresh Sauternes from Château Filhot ($14).Go for it, you won’t be disappointed. Free wifi! More...

This is located on a side-street that isn't too difficult to find. The ambience and decor is quite romantic. The place does fill up so I recommend making a reservation.Let's start with wine. We ordered a 2014 Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas Granit 30, which was smoky and juicy with a nose of blueberries. After two attempts to order a wine, the manager came back to say each time that our selected wine was not available. After the second attempt, the manager came back with two comparable wines to the one which we originally selected. And the manager made sure our appetizers were free of charge even without us showing any signs of frustration which was an admirable quality.To start, we ordered French onion soup and a vol-au-vent d'escargots to start. For the French onion soup, the cheese was amazing, the bread was crispy, and the soup was rich. For the vol-au-vent d'escargots, the puff pastry was delightfully creamy and flaky, and the escargot was rich in flavour. For our mains, we got a plate of paleron de boeuf bourguignon and a plate of moules à la provençale. The beef was nice and tender with a light red wine sauce. And the mussels were tender with a rich and creamy flavour.For dessert, we ended with a cheese platter with four kinds of cheese paired with a glass of Graham's 10-year Old Tawny Port and a 20-year old glass, too. It was quite delightful.Overall, this places offers excellent wine and food and an excellent dining experience. I'd recommend going here if you are seeking French food, especially since the price is very reasonable given the exceptional quality. More...

Not perfect, but excellent for the price point. Had the duck confit, two legs. Duck was flavorful, tender, not too dry, flaking off the bone with crisp skin. The skin could have been crispier, and it could use more sauce. However for the price it was great. Side vegetables were ok. So were the potatoes More...

I love to go to Le Select for a nice dinner with friends or family - it’s a perfect combination of classy but still accessible. It’s well priced for fantastic food and it’s not overly trendy so I feel I can take my parents there without them feeling out of place or being annoyed with blasting music. The service is always top notch, one of the best in the city for sure. Also, they have a great selection of food for everybody’s taste, so you don’t have to worry about dietary restrictions or veggie options if you’re going with a larger group. I love the duck and the steak frites, as well as their charcuterie boards. And their deserts are all amazing!!!! Le Select is just a classic gem, reliably great every time. More...

My boyfriend and I went for brunch on a weekday... They only have brunch on weekends (whoops). We ordered a lot. All the food was great. The duck was not the most memorable so I wouldn't recommend it but the cheese plate had a wide selection. The steak tartare was amazing. The foie gras was cold and buttery with a delicious jam. To be honest our favorite were the macaroons which were passion fruit and had a delicious lemon zing. Our waitress was super polite and funny. She also always asked to refill our coffees exactly when we ran out. More...

I've wanted to try Le Sélect Bistro for a while now, and it was well worth the wait. I had the duck confit for the very first time, and it was simply magnificent. Flavours were absolutely delightful and everything was beautifully cooked, though the portion was very small. The atmosphere is very classy, yet warm and inviting without being pretentious. I cannot speak about other dishes, but if you are expecting to be full with one leg of duck confit, then you will be disappointed in that respect. However, the superb quality of the food and overall experience are worth the money. More...

Great experience, again! Already for the 4th visit (now for my mom's birthday) and every time both food and service were great! The peppercorn steak I had was amazing (the brandy and green peppercorn cream gave a special taste to the my medium cooked meat) with the fries exactly as expected (thin and crispy on the outside, just soft on the inside), the boeuf bourguignon my daughter had was literally melting in your mouth and the choucroute garnie my wife had was also great! The appetizers were excellent (endive salad, onion soup, Fogo Island cod whipped, escargots) and the desserts great as well (beside the lemon tart and flourless chocolate cake we had already before, they added a poached pear in Malbec wine with vanilla ice cream and on the side with warm dark chocolate that was poured over the pear and ice cream when served - amazing combination!). Service was top - attentive but not intrusive; one of our other guests in our party of 7 didn't quite like the house salad she ordered but didn't want to mention it; the hostess just noticed that and brought the soup of the day (not to be charged) so the guest can have another option (which she ended up liking it). Everything made us happy to be there and looking forward to the next time! More...

Fantastic. Tried the seared foie gras (one of the best things I've ever tasted), escargots vole au vent, the choucroute plate and the duck confit, finishing with the creme brulee. All were excellent but the star for me was that seared foie, followed closely by the confit. The choucroute was also very good but I grew up on northern Italian cuisine so it was almost underwhelming as I've been a little spoiled growing up with my grandmother cooking similar dishes that probably weren't quite as good but comparable. The staff was fantastic, and gave us a congratulatory two glasses of champagne for our anniversary. Pricey for sure, but we left very full and satisfied, and I like to treat myself once a year - it was well worth it. More...

I haven't eaten at Le Select since it was up on Queen St, but the ambience is still there and the food was excellent. I had steak au poivre which was perfect, and the seafood was wonderful. Definitely try the smoked whitefish terrine to start, it's amazing. My only complaint was super disinterested service, which surprised me given the overall quality and price of the food. It wasn't very busy, but it took ages for anyone to even show up at our table, and we pretty much had to wave her over every time we wanted to order, or even get the bill. In fact, we had to ask her twice for the bill! So I appreciate they're not rushing you through, but it did mean you were sitting around for a long time with empty glasses or plates. Still, I'd go back again, hopefully with a different server!**Update. I received a very kind and thoughtful reply from Le Select about this experience, which I appreciated and tells you something about their commitment to service overall. As I say, I'd go back again! :-)** More...

I've always wanted to try this place as it looks so cute and has a beautiful patio. I popped in (it was winter and the patio wasn't open) and tried the oysters, pate and beet salad and I can say they were all very nice. I'd go again. Just expect to spend some time here. Also, I enjoyed the French speaking host. More...

I was thoroughly impressed with the decor and when the food arrived it only set the bar even higher. The authenticity of French cuisine here is as if you had been taken to Paris France and then back. The appetizers, the entrees, the drinks; everything was perfection. Le Select Bistro is perfect for date nights, family outings, or when you want the taste of Paris. More...

I went there for lunch on a weekday. We made online reservation but we would have been fine even if we did not; they had quite a few tables available. Having never been to France, I can not comment on the authenticity of the food but I had the French onion soup and if they don't make it that way in France, they really do need to because it was absolutely amazing. The complementary bread was fresh and delicious. So was the butter it was served with. Also ordered a fish hot d'oeuvre. It was really good too. The servers were polite and friendly and the ambience was really soothing. I have already recommended it to everyone at work and will be going back soon. :) More...

Start with the foie Gras and a sauternes, it's amazing. We had the duck confit and the house speciality - Choucroute Garnie. Both were fantastic but the duck is some of, if not the best in the city. Too many great desserts to choose from but I'll definitely have the creme brule next time. The ambiance, service and decor makes it easy to say we're coming back again and again. Great spot for anyone looking for great French food downtown. More...

The burger was ok but the fries that came with it were great.I saw what some other people ordered and I am not as sold on the rest of the menu. My friends seemed a bit underwhelmed by what they ordered. The atmosphere is nice and as expected quite french cafe vibey.Overall, it's worth a try, but don't go in with super high expectations.

Enjoyed Le Select Bistro's dinner the other night. Cut ambiance although the hostess tried to seat us right between two other couples in a tight seating section and I politely asked about the other half of the restaurant which was pretty much empty; after asking she did re-seat us in a quieter spot. I have no idea how that pre-seating arrangement suggestion from the hostess came about. I had the Foie Gras which was pretty nice, the Escargots in the pasty (great sauce), Cuissot de Chevreuil (red deer haunch served rare which was also delicious), and the dessert was okay (we had the Gateau a la courge and it was the orange/grand marnier sauce that was too tarte....although fortunately the sauce was just poured aside off of the pastry onto the plate so you can avoid most of the tart sauce if that is what you fancy like myself). I would come back and recommend for a French cuisine More...

We had French Onion Soup (pat an extra $5), Duck Confit, Steak with frites and Chocolate Mousse and Creme Brûlée for desert. Huge bonus is the fee parking at the back of the restaurant, it’s limited but we were there earlier around 5:30. Definitely will be going back to try there Brunch! More...

This was my second time coming to this restaurant, and the food and service were as perfect as the first. Two surprises for me: I usually don't enjoy duck at restaurants. I find them dry and too gamey. I didn't realize that the cassoulet came with an entire duck leg. Oh but I ate all of it and enjoyed every tender, juicy and fragrant bite with a lightly crisped skin. The second surprise was the chocolate mousseline. Instead of tasting like whipped chocolate milk as I expected, it tasted like an airy, rich, aromatic dark chocolate with a very long finish. My favourite French restaurant. More...
