    We were seated toward the back the dining room which was too close to the kitchen. The kitchen staff was very loud and this was very disruptive and annoying and we can hear the shouting all through the dinner. I would ask for a table in the front.

    The price was worth it and the food was very delicious. One thing is that they wrote the extra supplement price.on the menu really really tiny so I couldnt even see it so I ordered it they charged me and I didnt know it was extra supplement. And I ordered 12 dollars wine but the server mistakenly charged different wince cost 2 times expensive one and I noticed when I checked the receipt. Other than that the server was very kind and nice and food was amazing.

    Overall lovely. The decor is perfect. We do feel the kitchen is maybe trying to hard to be “fancy” vs. just putting out delicious food. My meal was not very interesting or delicious. I left unsatisfied. The dessert menu was especially lacking, and if you are going to offer ice cream it should be homemade or extra special in some way, not just three scoops of moderate, slightly melted, boring ice cream. That was very odd. I want to recommend it overall, but it’s hard to based on the actual food experience. I sort of felt like I was in the 1950’s, menu-wise.

    What a fantastic meal. eautiful venu, menu = delish & service really, really pleasant. Special shout out to our 22 year old server Jackson who is already a certified sommelier!?!? Advanced sommelier (her name escapes me) nailed the two bottles she suggested based upon the food we ordered. We will absolutely return. Thank you entire Selbys staff for an all around wonderful evening

    Wow--everything delicious and on-point. Excellent service. Courteous, discreet and knowledgeable Sommelier ; only wish the very comprehensive wine list had a few more price-approachable offerings, but for a restaurant of this quality, it was reasonable and expected. Fine evening. Will return when in area again!

    Amazing!! What a fantastic experience we had at Selby’s, from the time that Alex, our valet met us in the front, to the greetings with smiles as walking in, to the lush bar full of tantalizing and creative beverages, to the table where every bite was savored and delighted us. I think I found my new favorite restaurant in the Bay Area!

    It is a wonderful place for a big celebration or special ocassions. We went there for our 10 year anniversary. The staff was very warm and nice, the food was outstanding and delicious. There were about 5 other groups in the room, the atmosphere was very quiet, with great but soft music (classic jazz tunes) and dim lights. We asked for a sommelier and were very well counseled. Loved it.

    I don’t typically leave bad reviews, but I was particularly struck by this experience. For fine dining, you expect some level of service and while there the pieces were in place to make the experience great, we were left lacking. We were not checked on, our drinks came out after our first course and each course took an extremely long time to come. We were told they were out of rolls but the tables next to us that were sat down after, received rolls (a small thing but you notice). There was also just a general in-attentiveness to our table even when attempting to get our waiters attention. When experiences like this happen that seem extremely out of the ordinary, I can’t help but wonder if it’s related to race; as we were the only black couple in the restaurants

    Amazing food and above expectations service. We had a great dinner and really appreciated the attentive but not annoying service. Our server could tell I wasn't excited about the pinot noir by the glass options, and then the sommelier showed up to have me taste three of them. I didn't ask and didn't expect it but it was a super nice touch. They go above and beyond and we left stuffed with the prix fixe menu. The hardest part was deciding which appetizer and entree to choose, they all looked so good. Get the limoncello mousse. Ridiculously good.

    Absolutely amazing modern twist on a classic steakhouse. The price fix menu with supplementals is great and worth the expense. And it is expensive. The food is rich and delectable making it a once in a while treat, a celebration, something special as opposed to a weekly dining staple. We had the bavette steak, the parmesan chicken, wedge salad, cesar salad, popover, parker house roll, crullers, lemon mousse along with cocktails and wine. Classic menu offerings expertly done. I do wish they had raw oysters. Service was exceptional. The setting elegant, refined, and divine. We will be back to work our way through the menu, albeit slowly as eating this kind of food too often would not be great for my health even if my taste buds appreciate it.

    The service was very good and the restaurant layout and ambience are good. The food was disappointing. The wedge salad was mushy and the pork chop was tough and very salty. The potatoes were delicious. The cheese with a $15 upcharge was very disappointing. The amount of food for the price is good (too much really) but the quality could be better. The parker rolls are fabulous. We will go back and try the bar menu. I was hoping for something better for the price but maybe it was jut an off night.

    Selby's was a wonderful experience! I made a reservation to dine with my husband for my birthday and the service was outstanding. Every little detail was well thought out, we sat next to the fireplace in the main dining room which was lovely. Each course was exquisite and well portioned. The martinis were fabulous and I appreciated the special birthday touches. A well earned Michelin star and Selby's will be our go to for celebratory dinners. My only feedback would be that the dessert could definitely be made smaller and still be appreciated as we were quite full by the final course. Thank you again Selby's for the unforgettable evening. I've been to restaurants in Italy, Tokyo, Paris, London, NY and this still will be one of my favorite dinners ever. Cheers!

    Food is amazing, their current newest appetizer is a soft shell crab that is a must order. Dessert was probably our favorite part, and we tried the midnight cake, the crullers, and the limoncello mousse. This wasn't our first time here so we made sure to save room for dessert! The server could have been a tad bit more attentive, to check-in and see how we were liking the food, but we had no complaints and it allowed for more uninterrupted conversation, so not a big deal. The ambiance is great for a celebratory dinner.

    Had a date night. They seemed to be understaffed a bit post Covid, so you need to be patient. The appetizer and main were great. The dessert was Costco size and not the best. The wine list was just too long, you can spend all date looking for a NZ white wine there. Pricing was reasonable for a Michelin. All in all, I would go back.

    very attractive "clubby"atmosphere.....beautiful bar.....beef -oriented menu has many other offerings. duck breast was very large and nicely done; strip steak was excellent meat but a little too charcoaled/salty on the outside for my taste. one-third or more of the menu items come with "extra charges" over the $78 prix fixe 3 course menu....the ny strip, for instance, is an extra $25. excellent very, very pricey wine list with a few "affordable" wines. $50 corkage. good service. the room is quiet but the background music was too loud at times. special occasion place. would repeat .
