Found Selva Grill almost by mistake on Yelp. Visited during low(er) season in mid-May. Place was completely full when we arrived. We even had time for a drink at the bar. Bartender was excellent, drinks(mojitos) a touch pricey, but very tasty. They sat us about 10 minutes after our scheduled 8 PM reservation. A welcome change from most Florida(non-South Beach)...

Just went to visit Selva's for the first time. We enjoyed our dinner, and highly reccomend the Chilean Salmon, jumbo lump crab and manchego topping, served with jasmine rice and roasted bell pepper tamale, finished with a mango beurre monte . Seating was tough but this place is popular and worth the wait as the chef knows how to prepare... More

My wife and I dined at Selva this week. We had a superb meal. I would highly recommend the ceviches to start. The fish was as fresh as possible and the combination of flavors was magical. We started with three different ceviches. You must try the Maya Shrimp Ceviche consisting of shrimp marinated in orange, lime juice and achiote tossed... More

Dined there last night and the food was exceptional. The presentation was truly a work of art. Dining room was a bit loud as it was crowded but it was bearable. We made the reservation through the Ritz who told them it was our anniversary and they presented us with a personalized dessert for two on the house. Service was... More

This restaurant came highly recommended. The place was full and the service was good. The food was very good but it was not of the highest quality. The Peruvian combinations of flavours was very interesting. This place is worth a visit.

Outstanding dishes and service! While a friend visited with me for a week we dined at many local, favorite restaurants, enjoying some great meals and drinks. Selva Grill was by far the best! Everything we sampled was beautifully presented and very tasty. Our waitress had excellent suggestions for both drink and food. I'm looking forward to returning here.
