Our server made our evening. Excellent food. Tables are way too tiny and for price point they shouldn’t run out of utensils. Beautiful space and great cocktails b

As our first experience, we were pleasantly surprised...the food and drinks were stellar...the ambiance was amazing...Staff was excellent, but was less present as the evening went on...My fish entree arrived cold, however; the management, without hesitation removed item from our bill...despite, the few hiccups, I would totally go back without any reservation or negativity...we really loved it!

Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Cheese pain au lait and Sunday roast prime rib were great. Chicken breast in the coq au vin was a little dry even with the jus. We also liked the long cocktail list.

What a restaurant! Amazing experience. Out for Sunday date night with my wife. Beautiful location with candle lit historic elegant decor. The staff are so warm and friendly throughout. Very knowledgeable about the menu, and were at the table just enough to make the experience flawless while still giving us space to enjoy our time together. Food is out of this world amazing, every dish well balanced and beautifully presented. Highlight was the duck liver parfait. After tonight Maison Selby is our new favourite go to spot.

Beautiful spaces, great services and amazing cocktails!

We ordered the escargot (very good), steak tartare (very fresh but slightly underseasoned), duck breast, chocolate cake (not too special) and 3 awesome cocktails.

Will come back again to experience the hidden speakeasy!

We had lunch in the bar area and at times we had to shout to be heard. Music is too loud!!! The eating areas need soundproofing!!

I was so disappointed in Maison Selby this time. We have been many times and consider it our favourite neighbourhood spot but this time was so disappointing. We took friends who had never been. We had sung your praises to the skies. But the food was ordinary this time. The soup was inedible. The burger was just ok. And in the middle of dinner, the fire alarm went off. It was a most disappointing night. I hesitate to recommend you and wonder if I could ever go again. Considering your prices, one expects top quality. We didn’t get it this time.

Love the restaurant, service, decor and food but we were put in a sunroom with a large group of noisy women—we wanted a quiet birthday brunch for two and unfortunately it was really too loud in that small space.

This is a beautiful restaurant. I dined here with a friend for lunch, and it was great. My duck confit was amazing, and my friend said her onion soup was delicious. We shared a nice creme brulee for dessert. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely be back!

Fantastic first time experience at Maison Selby! Birthday celebration for a group of wonderful female friends and colleagues, and we couldn't have asked for a better time. The food was fresh, delicious, not overly salty (like many restaurants unfortunately do!) and prepared to perfection. Our server was top notch, providing us with ample time to eat, drink and be merry without feeling rushed. And the cocktails...WOW...such a great variety and truly complimentary to the menu offerings. Thank you for making us feel welcome and for the surprise candles on our desserts. You knocked this experience out of the park and we will definitely be back! Congrats to the entire Maison Selby team!

Fun space and vibe, a historic home nicely appointed as a bistro. Wine list is thoughtful and good. Noise bounces A LOT, which can be distracting. Suggest discrete baffles or some such, maybe get a sound expert consultant? Food was very tasty. Only went for the brunch menu, would return for lunch or dinner.

Lunch was very good..... coq au vin, mussels, and duck parfait. Ambience was very nice but the noise level was intense with the busiest lunch crowd. Server was excellent as was the wine list. I will certainly come again.

The restaurant is absolutely lovely and decorated according to it's era. The food was delicious and the staff really looked after us and could not have been nicer. I want to go back next week for happy hour at 2:00 and I will definitely have another bowl of French Onion Soup, which is one of the best I have had. I have already told my son and wife to go and check it out.
