Selanne Steak Tavern Ratings and Reviews
We heard great things about this restaur ...
We heard great things about this restaurant, but were sadly disappointed. the service was very good ,the ambiance was very good the mac and cheese was very good,but the main entre of rib eye and skirt steak were not any where near what was expected. We were very disappointed with the tenderness and how much fat and grissle was found on the steak. We thought when you pay a high price for top quality meat you get an exceptional expieriance, sorry we didn't.

We have dined at Selanne's on several occasions and were always pleased with the drinks, food and service. However, on this particular occasion we walked away feeling very disappointed and dissatisfied. At the bar, my cocktail was watery, and my husband ordered a Manhattan which was the worst he's ever had at a restaurant. Only one ounce of bourbon and a lot of time in the shaker, then poured over cracked ice. What happened to the ice ball or large cubes? The Wagyu striploin was not as tender and buttery as it should have been at $75. The sides were barely enough for all of us at the table, and the espresso machine was broken--really?--at a high end restaurant? Also, we made our reservations over a week in advance and were seated in the patio area which was ok but not what we preferred. Not sure if we would recommend Selanne's to anyone, or if we'll ever go back.

Overall experience was quite nice. The food was excellent as was the service. The filets were of a high quality and cooked to perfection. The side dishes were good with the corn and mushrooms being the favorites. Skip the risotto.
Be prepared to pay top dollar for this experience, it is not inexpensive. Would recommend if money is not a concern or for a special occasion.

My second time dining at this establishment and I enjoyed it even more than the 1st time. The food is the same quality as your standard high-end steak house but the environment is much brighter and more friendly than those same traditional steak houses. My date and I enjoyed all aspects of the dining experience from the appetizer to the desert. The only issue was at the end of our evening as the restaurant became more crowded the level of service declined.

This is my second time at Selanne's. I brought my dad who had specifically asked to come as it was his first time. We were seated in the noisy bar area which was ridiculous as my dad is elderly and hard of hearing. I asked to be moved and was accommodated right away. The server in the Library was inattentive and slow and this is the reason I will not be returning. There are so many other great options and this was just a mediocre experience.

The ambiance is excellent. Restaurant's interiors and exteriors are done very nicely. The service was excellent. (Although, we like for our table to be cleared once everyone at the table is finished with their meal as to not make anyone feel rushed)
The food was very good, but our party felt that it was overpriced. We would go back for drinks.

While the food was very good, it was way overpriced, and the service was extremely slow. We had reservations for 6:45, but did not get seated until 7:15, yet there were open tables both inside and outside... Once we ordered our entrees, it took almost 40 minutes for them to arrive at our table. By the time we payed our bill and started walking out it was 9:15, and we didn't even have dessert. So while the food was very good, and our waiter was very knowledgeable, the fact that it took 2 1/2 hours ruined it for us. We will stick with Ruth's Chris, or Maestros.

Sellane's never disappoints. Great food and service. With a bit of luck you will see a celebrity, professional athlete, or maybe the owner, former Anaheim Ducks Hokey Star, Teemu Sellane.
There are a number of different dining areas indoors: near the bar, behind the bar, upstairs or in the dining room as well as nice outside area. Steaks, seafood, chops with a wonderful assortment of side dishes.

We celebrated my wife's birthday.
First we ordered two Hendricks up...was made well. blue cheese olives added to the taste.
We had Caesar salads...white anchovies was tasty. Served with a whole loaf of delicious bread.
My wife had the rib eye steak ...was OK, had better meat in other places.
I had the filet steak...was delicious, done to my liking. Our sides were broccoli was good and mixed mushrooms which was superb.
Wine selection was good.
Total:$263 a bit stiff.
Athena our server was wonderful..cheerful and efficient.

We have dined several times at Selanne indoors and enjoyed ourselves. Our indoor high-table was not conducive to our dining due to my broken foot on this occasion so we sat outside which I will refuse in the future. The noise level was awful however the food was excellent. Vito, our main server was delightful, professional and extremely knowledgeable with twine and spirits. Unfortunately, we could have done without the water server aggressively hitting on our 18 year old daughter (very rude and unprofessional) during and after our meal. This is unacceptable... we will return in the future but I will avoid the above negatives.

Service was horrible. We had to wait 30 minutes for a iced tea and soda. The next tanle to us was seated after us got their appetizers before us. The only apology we received from the waiter was after he came with our food boxed. We had to ask for our to go due to plans. Would not return ever. For what pay for food you would expect much better service.

Our first time at this restaurant and it was my husband's birthday. His rib eye steak was smothered in bearnaise and butter and the steak itself was merely adequate. His immediate comment was that "this is no better than Outback and for twice the price". Being a vegetarian, I ordered a wedge salad and a vegetable plate. The wedge salad was good, but the vegetable plate was pitiful, the price was $29.00 and I ate very little of it. When the waiter asked me if I wanted a box, I told him that it wasn't good. He merely picked up the plate, with not even a slight indication that he was regretful. Not a good experience and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I think people pay for the experience at "Teemu Selanes" the food was ok. too high priced for what we ordered. One of the side was super salty. Their steaks were somewhat of a copycat fro Ruth Chris. Ruth Chris is way better. IF you want the best steak... Morton's!
Everything was top-notch. Great service ...
Everything was top-notch. Great service and people watching. The portions are very generous so some of the plates we shared amongst our party of three. I thought for a fine dining destination the bill would be much higher.
