I've been to Maison Selby before and the restaurant is lovely. The food is quite good and the restaurant itself is beautiful. The previous visit was for dinner and this time, I came for brunch. Both times I have found the meal to be an enjoyable experience. The only slight flaw is that the cocktails are not very balanced. Both times, my drink was not sweet enough. My companion, who does not like very sweet drinks, also found the drinks to be not sweet enough. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others and I will certainly return.
Well designed menu with a range of options that remains true to French cuisine
The presentation of the brunch menu leaves a bit to be desired ( chia seed pudding) but the flavours are still there. The quail egg on the steak tartar was a nice touch and the quiche du jour was exceptional. The serve was knowledgeable and friendly and if there was a question he was unsure of he asked the chef which was greatly appreciated.
Food was great but the restaurant was exceptionally noisy. We didn't enjoy the last half of our visit because we felt like we were shouting at one another!
The service at the bar top was excellent! Drinks and food were really tasty and the room had a great vibe.
Food is amazing. Great portion size for the money with lots of selection.
Beautifully designed space which feels cozy. Server was very knowledgeable, friendly and on the ball!
Will definitely be returning :)
I had a very enjoyable evening, dining at Maison Selby. The food was exceptionally good and the staff were all very helpful. The decor is very attractive and the ambiance was friendly and cheerful. I would definitely recommend this lovely dining experience to other friends and I'm sure I will return soon.
The restaurant itself is lovely. The food was okay. The servers were very nice and attentive, a little surprised to see them wearing Levi's. The base on the sound system was very loud.
Definitely will go back
Loved every single thing from decor to food to service
It was an expensive evening for 3 with no entrees and only osters but for a birthday celebration it was perfect.
Food was truly excellent. Can't say I've ever had a better Nicoise salad. Mimosas were good. We sat in the lounge, which is really beautiful. However, the service was incredibly slow. Drinks took 10-15 minutes to arrive, we waited a noticeably long time after the drinks arrived to place our food order, and we sat with our finished plates on the table for at least 40 minutes before they were cleared. When we asked our server for the bill, he walked away to get it - without clearing our plates.
Good food, great atmosphere. Most service staff went out of their way to make you feel welcomed and inviting to a great dinning experience. We did have one wait staff that gave a unpleasant attitude and rolled their eyes after bumping into then by accident and that was with our apology extended. We did address it to the management and they were very apologetic. Overall good service but one bad apple did spoil the experience.
Brunch items were beautifully presented and delicious. Service was great, and the restaurant is gorgeous. I will be back!
It’s not a good place for dating because of the high noise level. It is a little bit disappointing that they can not do writing on the dessert plate as my request for our anniversary date. But overall the food and service was good.
Beautiful location! Very classy. The staff is excellent, helpful, and friendly.
Will definitely be going again!
Food was excellent but the best part of the experience was the service. Our waitress was great, as were all the service people. If someone noticed our water glasses were low they filled them. Same with our wine. It was a birthday celebration and you helped make it special! Many thanks!
French onion soup was excellent as was the burger. The salmon sous vide is pale and tasteless swimming in a sea of green liquid. The dining room is charming in early 1900's decor. Although the dining room was quite empty when we arrived, a noisy group of 6 was seated right next to us.
Erica was very helpful. Food was spectacular. In love with the decor here, will be back.
Not a true wine Wednesday experience. They had very limited options of wine available at half price and they were expensive bottles, as was the food. Ambience was great. If they don't bring some more affordable food options to the menu, I can't see returning.
Maison Selby is by far my favorite new restaurant!
A perfect experience! The food and atmosphere exceeded expectations
In an attempt to recreate an evocation of old Toronto elegance, O & B have built a gloomy and rather depressing set of rooms.
The food was uninteresting.
The music was exceptionally loud, but it was turned down to a reasonable level upon request.
The service was earnest, but badly timed.
This is yet another O & B restaurant that misses the mark on all levels.
Great ambiance, great service, delicious food and drinks. Noise level improved considerably when the music was turned down (unprompted) - have already booked for brunch next month!
This was our second visit and first for brunch. Excellent omelette of the day, but the almond croissant could have been better (considering Maison Selby is supposed to be French/French-inspired). It was near inedible! It would have been nice had it been warmed up and perhaps served with jam in addition to butter (the butter was cold/straight from the fridge rather than room temp and creamy)
This is a true gem. Beautiful! We sat on the patio surrounded by flowers and the umbrellas provided adequate shade. Indoors is stunning! Now about our lovely breakfast. It was delicious! I had the quiche and I have to say one of the best I’ve had in a long time. The service was great and staff were very friendly. We will definitely be returning!
Decor was probably the best part. Food was great but it wasn’t amazing. I got the full selby and a mimosa and my mom got the tuna salad and a cappuccino. In total it came to $80 which is pretty expensive for what we got.
Our first time and it will become a regular spot. The staff were very sensitive to the severe fish and seafood allergy. However, it would be nice if restaurants would have separate fryers for fries & seafood. Particularly, those that have a specialty of steak/frites.
Second visit to Maison Selby and just as delightful as my first visit. Not the cheapest place to eat but well worth the experience. Service, ambience and food is extremely good.
Loved the atmosphere, the only little turn off was the waitress was a little snobish,
The food was good but service was a little on the slow side.
Best part of the experience was the service -- attentive, but not overly so and very friendly staff. Restaurant itself if beautiful -- but the noise level was terrible. Difficult to have a conversation and hear friends across the table. Food was good - but not great. I had the mussels and they were dry -- until I got to near the bottom and the ones in the broth. Not as tasty as others I've had at Biff's for example.
I got the French onion soup, big mistake. There was around a half pound of cheese and soggy bread but no soup. I ended up giving heaping spoonfulls of the soup to the two men in our group who didn't really get enough food for a decent meal for normal sized man. There wasn't any bread brought to the table, and the salads were extra. For the price, it wasn't worth it. We spent over $400 for meager meals for four. And the table was so small, everybody was afraid to move. Maybe that's why the helpings were so tiny. There wasn't room for more. I was extremely disappointed.
We went on a Sunday evening and they had a special Sunday tasting menu family-sharing style and it was a great experience. We will definitely go back.
Loved everything about it from Ambience to the service and finally the wonderful food!
Brunch for Sunday. Enjoyed our selections: Full Selby and Beef Tartare (Main)
Used to live near here so upon return to TO for a weekend, decided to give it a try. Very enjoyable experience.....love the space, décor, menu and drinks. Service was not quite comfortable and intimate yet, but I think that will come. Would certainly return one day
Amazing place for brunch. Food was fantastic! Shared the tartar main course size to start and followed up with the full selby breakfast. Both were incredible. Finished off with the pain perdu as dessert to share. Service, decor and overall experience were exceptional. Will definitely be back!
We were seated in a small room with three tables. The AC was over the top cold but worse was the loudness of the guests at the next table was not conducive to a relaxing dinner - it felt like we were at someone else’s table in the worst possible way. The service was unrefined/cumbersome compared to a sister restaurant like Canoe or Jump. The food was mixed at best. The French onion soup great but the mussels were way overcooked - how difficult is it to cook mussels? It may be growing pains but dinner was a bit painful. Oh yah, and one of their signatures cocktails had way too much soda and had almost no flavor.
This is a spectacular restaurant and very well run. The décor is amazing - so much fun and style. No expense has been spared. The staff are friendly, polished and well trained. As for the food - BRILLIANT. The French onion soup the best ever - the pasta amazing - desserts great. Portions HUGE !!!!! Well worth the visit.
Everything about this place was phenomenal! The service was impeccable, the décor was amazing (each room had a different colour scheme/vibe going on), and the drinks and food were fantastic! Quite possibly the best crème brûlée I have ever had.
Excellent food and service. Room noise level a tad high though. Hard to hear people at our own table at times.
Great brunch at a beautiful spot. Would love to see more vegan friendly options.
