Several things I appreciate in a restaurant that we found here, that unfortunately have become rare with restaurants and especially Orange County.
1. While being intimate it wasn't cramped. Very cozy, even when seated near other tables we were able to carry on a conversation.
2. Not loud. You could actually hear one another talk. Not a cahcaufony of sound. Restaurant staff and cooking station you could not hear.
3. Well spaced out course delivery. This restaurant understands not to try to push you out of a table for the next group or rush you through a meal. Every course was spaced out for us to enjoy, savor and look forward to the next.
4. Wait staff was great. We were introduced to both the waiter and attendant right off and both were personable, communicative and made the dining experience delightful.
This was the first time we were at this restaurant, having wanted to try since it opened but for one reason or another had not. We look forward to going back. You could say Selanne's shoots and scores. Heck, we will.
Good food and great service. A little noissy due to a surprise party hosted next to us. Soups were good, and steaks were tasty.
We were lucky to be seated outdoors because inside was ridiculously noisy!
Great service and exceptional food quality unmatched in any steakhouse in area.
Scallops and skirt steak are my favorites
We have dined here a few times and came back for the steak and service each time. This time we were disappointed in the tenderness of the Rib Eye and flavor. The crab special was absolutely amazing though and my fiance' couldn't stop raving about it. We conversed that it was time to look for another steak house though. Your service is always on point and outstanding. Atmosphere was a little louder than normal, but we were closer to the bar this time.
Food was great!!
Great atmosphere. First time going to their brunch and it was a different experience from their dinner service. Loved the pecan sticky bun and Teemu brunch burger. Great service by Vito with good recommendations throughout brunch.
Great service and food is superb. The ambiance is nice and this fits special occasions!
We celebrated our 26th anniversary and loved every minute of our first but definitely not last visit to Selanne Steak Tavern! Loved it😃
Thank you so much for the awesome service! What a wonderful experience for my 55th birthday!!
Was a very nice anniversary dinner! Our server was excellent and so was the help staff! The chef even came out to say hi and ask how the food was ... was delicious everything we ate.
Firing on all cylinders, fantastic meal, environment and experience
Their brunch was great! Everything we ate was delicious.
Just okay. Food was just okay. Way too expensive for the quality of meal and service.
Our meal was fantastic, our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. The steaks were fantastic, and as our waiter advised us they paired fantastically with the Mac and cheese.
Every time I come to Anaheim for a ducks game I make a stop here and I’m never let down
Food and service were very good. I didn’t like being jammed on the side of the bar for our anniversary dinner. It was loud, and there was a lot of profanity from some of the patrons at the bar. I had heard there are some nice places to sit there. It was a shame they didn’t put us somewhere else based on our special occasion.
Our table for 2 was up against a wall. My view was a wine cupboard. About 6-8 feet from my seat. No table beyond ours. Disappointed on seating. Felt confined & enclosed. It was a special evening. Food was delicious. However, no special effort to make our table/seating special too.
Excellent service, very quick to fill our water glasses repeatedly. Waiter very friendly and knowledgeable about all menu items!
We were seated short;y after our reservation time on the front veranda. Service was prompt-to and attentive all night without being intrusive. We were baking under the heat lamps and the staff immediately resolved the issue. We had oysters, a strawberry salad, and scallops to start. All were fantastic. Skirt steak for both of us as mains were impeccable;e except for the truffle butter, which distracted from an otherwise perfect steak. Ask for the butter on the side. The broccoli I was impeccable in flavor and texture. A complementary order of mashed potatoes was unnecessary but a lovely and delicious treat from the chef. A nice bottle of wine decanted tableside and even a very rich dessert for M’s birthday. Can’t think of a thing I’d change. Bravo.
The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and has the best vibe. My Mojito was delicious. The bread, butter and bruschetta was delicious. Every detail was covered and taken care of. The steaks were juicy. The macaroni and cheese was amazing. The pot de creme and donuts were the best I’ve ever had. The waiter was very informative. It is very, very expensive, but worth it.
Easter Brunch. New menu. We were totally impressed. Always a great meal at SST but the brunch menu was excellent. Everything you’d want in a brunch menu and the food was soo good. Plus always such a gorgeous restaurant to celebrate any occasion. You
Always and consistently top quality service, food and presentation.
We booked brunch here on a whim and it was absolutely incredible. Every dish & drink was perfectly made and beyond delicious. I highly recommend the bloody mary & the blood orange mimosa to drink and the steak bacon & eggs and the monte cristo, but you can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. I can’t wait to go back and try everything else.
Nice cozy restaurant.
Hard to find for first timers, parking in alley.
Side dishes were tasty.
Steaks were good and done to order.
Had the Porterhouse for two which was good.
Only disappointment was lot of leftover Porterhouse was not put in take home bag. Which was a lot since it is so big.
Selanne's is one of our very favorite restaurants and a go-to when we celebrate special occasions. We come here for our birthdays, for NYE, etc. The food is always excellent as well as the very attentive service. We have also come a few times for Happy Hour, which is great- especially when we get to have a drink with Teemu.
On our most recent visit, this place became a bit more special- WE GOT ENGAGED! <3 Safe to say we will enjoy coming back for years to come.
Wonderful! Came from Winnipeg for Spring Break and had to eat at Teemu Selanne Steakhouse. Second visit here in 3 years. First time for our kids. Delicious again.
Ive been to Selanne about 10 times and surprisingly tonight the food was exceptional
The service we received that night for was wonderful. Could not ask for any better. And our waiter was awesom would like to request him the next time we're there
Everything was excellent except the ribeye steak was very salty and not very tender. For a prime age steak I expected much better. Would not order it again.
We’ve been to Selannie’s several times with our children. This time was different, as.my daughter and I ordered filet’s, and they were well seasoned and cooked properly, but was a round cut, not a filet. It's important not to do that, as avid diners do notice. We will go elsewhere from now on.
Such an amazing experience! We were in town visiting family and took a night away for a much needed date! Food, service, and drinks were fantastic!
We enjoyed our meal very much. Our waiter was helpful and gave excellent advice about the menu. The one negative part of our evening was because we were seated in the tavern area, which at one point became crowded with a group of businessmen and women waiting for their table, who seemed utterly oblivious to us and were crowding around us talking loudly. But the wait staff was very understanding and helped us to a different table so we could enjoy the rest of our meal. The food we had was all excellent, and the drinks were equally enjoyable.
this was our second time at Selanne's both times a special occasion. Food is incredible, service outstanding !
We both got 8 oz filet and they were great. Tender meat with great seasoning. the mac & cheese was very good along with the other sides we got which were asparagus and mashed potatoes.
Thoroughly enjoyed our birthday celebration at Selanne's. The service was impeccable, food and drinks unique and delicious. The filets just melt in your mouth! Our wait staff was amazing and so attentive, cannot say how much we enjoyed this dining experience. We will be back soon!
Fantastic dining experience! Waiters Jesse & Jared were the BEST. Beet Ravioli salad was extra special as was the “donuts (beignets) & coffee cream dessert. Hat Trick martini fun for my wife. Upstairs tables are intimate. Great food, great service, great wine list-perfect for anniversary or just to celebrate anytime.
The food, like the service, was superb. Perfectly prepared steaks and side dishes. Creative and delicious.
A perfect evening, great food and excellent service. This is a steakhouse that hits all the marks.
Great food, quaint place with nice staff. We would return!
This was our 3rd visit. Though touted for quality beef, our steaks have been inconsistent and underwhelming. Not worth the hype, nor the price. Best thing we ate were vegetable side dishes. Our advice? Go to Fleming's or Morton's!!!
