“Selland's is nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

The couple times I have eaten at Selland's, the food was just average at best. The servers were almost arrogant, maybe I just didn't fit in with the stuffy crowd that tends to gather there. I'd rather spend my money were the food is excellent and the servers are not looking down their noses at you.

“Nice neighborhood bistro-y”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Family members live nearby and are regulars. They compared this place to Dean & Deluca. Not sure I would go that far, but very good. We had a variety of things and all very solid, but I still think a little pricey--OK not as pricey as D&D--for what you get, as everything is a la carte. Our group had prime rib and BLTA sandwichs (very good), a couple of salads (nothing special), salmon, carrots, crab cakes (TINY cakes but the sauce was killer). Trying to keep it together dessert wise, but it was hard to go through the line and not get something from the yummy looking treats.
Food has great presentation behind the glass as you wait in line and staff does a good job getting you through quickly. Had a vegetarian in the group who complained that besides salads and mac and cheese, not a lot of protein options.
Did a tour of the wine section while we waited and good selection that didn't seem to have been ridiculously marked up.

“Yummmmm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Lots of selection, awesome bakery, super friendly staff. Prices are average for the area. I had a salad with chicken and goat cheese and it was excellent. Not much parking so you may have to look around for street space.

“Wonderful lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Selland's is a wonderful place. They have a very broad menu, and clearly identify vegan and gluten free menu items. I met my friend for lunch and had their hot turkey sandwich. It was very good, but wished I had gotten the Mac and cheese side. It looked so good. My friend had the meatloaf sandwich, and she loved it! We had no problem finding a table on a Saturday, but their was a constant flow of customers getting things to go.

“Get the daily special!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Our daughter took us here on our visit and it was outstanding. She said she comes here often with her friends and sure enough, the next day we met a bunch if the and they were headed here for lunch. We got the daily special that included a bottle of wine that was paired with the featured lunch entree for two. The meal was generous and very tasty. Highly recommended!!
