Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If it was good enough for expats in the 1920s, why not?! But it is not just about history and imagining seeing Hemingway or Fitzgerald at the American Bar, the food does not disappoint. Our table had royal dorade over spinach, burrata salad and escargot, os au moelle, and the poulet fermier - all were enjoyed - and I tried a bit of everyone's. I thought our waiter was a bit severe but not surly - maybe he has encountered too many people who expect a more gracious reception. Then again, was it really that different a 100 years ago?

Excelent place, good menu, try the Supreme de poulet avec tagliateles. I was served by Marc, he recommended to us, very good wines and we have a very good dinner these night.

Perhaps unintentional, but very unwelcoming. They seemed to be very understaffed. The server spoke little English and was too busy to try explain the menu to us. We wanted a smaller bottle of water to start because we were planning to order wine. The server brought a big bottle and three glasses covered in questionable water marks and stains. We asked to change for a smaller bottle and the server said a bunch in French but did help us change, but he left so quickly before we can even mention the glasses. After the water came I tried to get his attention to order, but he ran off again and ignored us for 15 min. By then we were fed up with the service and dirty glasses, so we just stood up and left.

I've always liked Le Select equally with its better known competitors in the area, e.g. La Rotonde, Le Dome, La Coupole..... My wife and I visited twice this past October and were not disapointed. Excellent fish dishes on the menu, beef looked great on other tables. I contented myself with an admirable gratinee (onion soup). We sta around the corner on the re Delambre twice and year and always visit Le Select. We will cotninue to do so.

A loyal customer since 1993, I had dinner at the Select the other night and it was abysmal. My hamburger was practically raw and my daughter's entrecôte was half fat and gristle. I attribute this to Paris in August. It must have been the B or C team in the kitchen and the B team on the floor. We did our best to get through the meal. When one server came to ask about my food, I showed her the disaster that was left for dead on my plate (see photo) and asked for the bill. I never saw her again. 20 minutes later I asked another server for the bill. 67.40 Euros for one 25cl beer, one terrible entrecôte and one "incontournable" cheeseburger. It was bad enough to have to eat it; it was worse to have to pay for it. I was happy to leave. During the rest of our visit to Paris the dinner experience at the Select became a running joke, as in, "Want to try that place?" "Sure, it can't be as bad as the Select." Come on, guys, I know it's August in Paris, but have a little pride in your work.

My partner and I visitied multiple times on our recrnt trip to Paris - this is one of our favourite bars to visit and is a great place to pass some time, We didn't try the food, but it looked delicious! The cocktails are absolutely delicious - maybe the best I have ever tasted. The place is always bustling and the staff, although extremely busy are always very helpful. I would highly recommend Le Select!

I had a meal there with my family on a Sunday night. The waiter was polite and food was tasting ok. We had foie grass and steak tartare . All was fine until middle of the night when I got a stomach ache and diarrhoea. I would never eat there again. Also there are lots of smokers at the tables outside and all the smoke goes inside. It’s as if you ate cigarettes for dinner instead of a meal.

Le Select is a bar located in Montparnasse neighborhood, in París. It is a typical French bar, where you can breakfast typical French food like croissant, orange juice, coffee with milk for adults and a baguette with jam and cheese and a chocolate for children. Very nice place with a local atmosphere to seem a real Parisian. Very nice for adults and children, specially the very nice terrace with street views. On the other hand, it is a bit expensive.

We were told that Le Select was the best Bistro in the area so we decided to book it on our first evening in Montparnasse. It was as good as we were told. Food was amazing and the service was professional and friendly. We were worried that Le Select would lack the authenticity of many smaller bistros but it lived up to the billing. I had Steak Tartare and it was one of the best I’ve had in Paris, My wife had the veal which was also superb. It’s not cheap but it is worth the money.

Picked this restaurant after a late arrival in Paris due to problems on Eurostar. Did not disappoint. The food was excellent, love to know how they get there risotto so plump and creamy. Finished of with tarte citron, outstanding. Glad I had not looked at reviews on this restaurant as we might have missed out on a lovely evening.

It's a Parisian landmark restaurant with a nice ambiance. I would recommend it for a drink but not for a meal. Their food used to be good but now they've hiked their prices and lowered the quality of the food. I had dinner with friends and was amazed on how obvious the ingredients of the food was mediocre. For example, a starter of oysters (6 for 27 euros) were of low quality, the plat du jour we chose- scallops with spinach and gnocci (32 euros) was tasteless, and a plate of assorted cheese (21 euros) included 3 types of cheese- goat cheese, which was inedible, a brie and saint nectaire were all of poor quality. Fortunately, we were able to enjoy the bottle of wine we selected.

Ate there twice for breakfast and once for lunch and very much enjoyed it. Le Select was close to our hotel so pre racing was ideal to get the day started. Staff were great and will visit again when in Paris.

Pleasant enough service but food was terrible. Re-fried French fries and steak covered by burned and greasy shallots. Took hours to get the taste out of my mouth. Very overpriced and low quality.

Ordered a onion soup Terine and a beer. Bread came out it was so stale it cut my gum. Canceled to soup but stuck with the terrine. It was dry and not nice. Got the bill as I wanted to go somewhere else they changed me 13 euro for a beer. Gross food. Unctuous looking wait staff. Bad service

My partner and I stopped here for drinks before going for dinner and we enjoyed it so much that we came back for drinks again after dinner! The decor is lovely and there is a great range of different drinks available!

Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
