Le Select is one of the places in Toronto you can count on for a terrific meal at a reasonable price. Service is consistently good.

Great atmosphere, service, food. Always love coming here and today had a long (and not rushed) brunch with my girl friend to catch up and enjoy great food. We were in the back in a baquette; great for conversation and I told my GF would be even better, in a different way, with someone special. Good selection of beverages. In... More

The tiled floor and walls set the stage for a typical French bistro. The menu has the (many) classic French bistro items, and the quality was very good. The wine list is crazy big (50+ pages) so not hard to find something you will like, at a reasonable (but not cheap) price. The restaurant is large, and service was a... More

I just spent a fabulous lunch at Le Sélect... Had my first steak tartare! The food was delicious, the service was attentive, the setting was delightful and the prices were very reasonable! My lunch partner had the steak tartare (and shared half with me) while I had the risotto aux champignons (and shared half with her). Both dishes were fantastic,... More

I'm addicted to cassoulet, and Le Select Bistro prepares an excellent cassoulet with duck confit. Lunch started with a frisee salad topped with lardons and a poached egg. And it was accompanied by a glass of their house syrah. I absolutely loved the food. The staff were lovely and friendly and professional (appropriately engaging, but not intrusive). Their restaurant is... More

great place. Had 13 people at our table and the service was perfect, not rushed but attentive. The food was great and beautifully presented. The wine list is a novel not a list. Many many choices, perfect for the wine expert. Love this place, need to go more often.

Visited the Select Bistro on my last night in Toronto and found it to be very good and true to its French origins. Service was very good, although at times it did take a while to get attention. The food was very good and didn't disappoint. I had the Escargot Volovan, delicious and the Venison filet, really quite exceptional. The... More

Restaurant is tired and so is the food. First time at this resto--we shared the Salmon Tartare which was OK--my duck confit was dry and bland--my spouse ordered the Bouillaibaise which supposedly contained octopus, shellfish and fish--other than 6 mussels, it contained none of the other ingredients. Poor value for mediocre food.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
