This is my favorite place to eat in Louisville. Ambience is excellent. Staff is always friendly and courteous. Food is all good. My husband always does the ribeye, but I have tried different dishes, and have never been disappointed! Save room for the bread pudding!

Was with a group of friends, and while on patio in late December it was kept very warm, the service was great for a large group and food was even better than expected. Would highly recommend and plan on returning soon.

I used to like Selena’s when it’s warm and we could sit outside. It’s almost a garden atmosphere, with a nearby train often clacking its way past, covered with graffiti from far-away “artists.” But, in cold weather season, inside eating is very different. It’s an...More

We'd been driving all day, and our hotel recommended Selena's. The food was wonderful, the service great, and at reasonable prices. I had pasta and my husband had their Cajun. We were both very pleased with our choices.
