We went with some good friends and split a few entrees. The lord stanley cup was the show stopper. AMAZING. I am also a "scallop snob" and these were seared perfectly. I can not wait to go back !!

My experience at this restaurant was varied. The ambiance and feel was very appealing but the steaks were tasteless and tough. They have a very nice bar to enjoy a cocktail before dinner or if you choose to, you can eat at the bar. The...More

We had a great dinner here on the deck. The steaks were out of this world. The sides could be ordered to share and they were amazing as well. I would definitely eat there again. You may even see a television star.

We picked the perfect place to celebrate our Anniversary! The ambiance, food and service were excellent! If someone in your party has a disability, the staff goes out of their way to make sure you are safely and comfortably seated.

We joined some friends who wanted to eat in Laguna at Selanne’s. It had been several years since we last dined here—largely because we think Mastro’s is better and is also closer. We still think so. We had very goos steaks, though—much better than we...More

Superb! Small menu...but huge flavor. Literally everything we had was phenomenal. Equally, the ambiance is warm and inviting, and the staff were amazing. The Waygu beef was to die for and the Foie Gras melt in your mouth wonderful. A full bar, unique cocktails, and...More

Their website says they have gift cards available. However, it looks like you have to go in to purchase one, not available for online purchase.

I ordered ribeye @ $48.00. That does not include salad or sides such as potatoes, vegetables, etc. We brought our own favorite wine ($20. cork fee) and we still spent over $200.00 for two. But like I said; worth it!
