Celebration dinner with 8 people. Everyone satisfied with great variety of choices - something for everyone. Prime rib, pasta, salads and delicious Cajun offerings. Definitely try the gumbo - best in Louisville. Calamari delicious, very fresh. Recommend reservations and be prepared for tight seating, tables really close together. Service was fantastic!

We had a Groupon and didn't expect much - but were pleased to find we loved the atmosphere and the food was delicious. My only critique would be that our waitress should have told us the dinner specials; she didn't offer any and we later heard other wait staff doing a great job of it. We loved the chicken parm...

We love the atmosphere during the winter months inside with a fire and the summer months sitting outside. The food never disappoints and the servers have always been great. My husband had fried shrimp and I had the 1979 Salad with blackened chicken. Both were good. Robert was our server and he was excellent.

Stopped by for lunch on a Saturday. I love the fact that Selena's is off the beaten path. Really attractive décor, brick walls and nicely appointed. I heard it was known for their Creole style food, weekend brunches and their bloody marys. From the look at their menu it could have come from a restaurant in the French quarter in... More

I met a friend there for brunch on a Saturday. Selena's kind of looked like a little hole in the wall from the outside, but the inside was much better, kind of a rustic feel. There was a nice variety on the brunch menu and specials on Bloody Mary's, Mimosas, and Peach Bellini's. Everything was reasonably priced. We tried a... More

Being a "Close, Personal Friend of Alan Salmon" will not hinder me in giving his restaurant a GREAT review. You walk into the bar which is very welcoming and rustic. The staff members are terrific. Most have been there since the place opened in the mid 2000's. The food is Phenomenal. The menu is fantastic. I had the best Jambalaya... More

I eat here often, brunch is a personal favorite but I can say I have never had a bad meal anytime I've been here. If you're coming for brunch, I suggest making a reservation to avoid a long wait. The menu changes up from lunch to dinner with so many things to try. You'll just need to come back often.

This place is wonderful! It's kinda off the beaten path and doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside is a different story. The inside is very nice and I love dining in warmer weather because they have outdoor seating then. Now, the food. There are so many choices and everything tastes very authentic and there's something for everyone.... More

I have been here several times. My friends like the Louisiana style menu items. I don't get it. I have tried a half dozen different dishes at lunch or dinner. The only one I really enjoyed was a steak that was perfectly cooked several years ago. The place was packed for lunch, and it looked like the others ordered all... More
