My 1st visit to Selanne Steak Tavern. We had a table of 12. The experience was fantastic. All our meals were prepared to perfection. Most people had steaks. I had the Toothfish which is delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.

From the pre-dinner cocktails through the dinner and side dishes all the way to the desserts, the meals at Selanne's are delicious. Our cocktails were served with a metal straw, which gave the special drinks a tasty crispness. The macaroni and cheese, the oysters, and...More

We enjoyed our second dinner at Selanne last night. It’s pricy but worth it! Their filets are cooked to perfection and we love love their risotto and Mac and cheese. The service is impeccable. Highly recommend this restaurant.

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!
