Don't tax the heart out of Toronto! 

Taxation means plucking the goose to get the most feathers for the least hissing. So said King Louis XIV's finance minister, Jean-Baptiste Colbert. Well, Le Sélect is being plucked. And we are hissing. We're fighting for fair property taxes for Toronto’s small businesses. Click the picture to watch our short animated video and add your voice.

Toronto's booming, but our small businesses are suffering. Why? Because property taxes are shooting up by triple digits. Since we moved onto Wellington street, our municipal property taxes have increased 551%. 

This is thanks to a crazy provincial system that assesses the property value based NOT on the real building that's there, but on the biggest and most profitable building that could go on that spot. MPAC told us: “...[Le Sélect’s] highest and best use is as a development site”– so Toronto loses a beloved landmark and 80 employees lose their jobs. Is this really the “best” use?

In  four weeks, our petition to Premier Doug Ford for fair property taxation has gathered over 28,000 supporters! Add your name now and help save Toronto small businesses from the wrecking ball.

This Valentine’s, bring your amour to our door

On February 14, we’ve got more of what you adore for you and your amour. Book now for an unforgettably romantic Valentine’s Dinner. Chef Laura has put together a special $69 prix fixe menu for the occasion.

Please note that a $25 deposit per person is required to validate a reservation on that night.


Gift Cards available on-line and on-site

Save yourself from present-buying stress: offer a gift card from Le Sélect Bistro.

They work like a credit card with a set amount, and can be use in one or multiple visits. No expiry date. Choose the value and order it online, and we will send it straight to you or the recipient.

Or drop by and we'll have it ready in no time.

Brunch, the most important meal of the weekend

Brunch Boudin with warm frisée and caramelized apple

We're open for brunch every Saturday (starting at 11:00 am) and Sunday (at 10:30 am).

Eggs used in our cooking are “fresh air”, collected from “pastured” hens which roam freely on local farms.

The Brunch menu is popular. Reservations are a good idea, but since we keep a few tables open for guests walking in without reservations, there should always be room for you should you decide to make tracks to us on the spur of the moment.

On-site Parking

We offer complimentary parking in our rear private lot at all times as well as in the rear lot of our adjacent neighbour to the East. All areas are monitored by CCTV and you don’t need to indicate to the reception that you parked there, as long as you are a patron.

On-street parking is also often plentiful but one needs to feed the meter as enforcers are on the lookout. On Sundays, street parking is free until 1:00pm. There is also a large number of hoops to lock a bicycle.

“This the real thing! For lovers of vrai Parisian ambience, food and drink,
there is simply no better spot than Le Sélect”


Join us on Rue  Wellington

We are conveniently located downtown, at 432 Wellington St West, just west of Spadina and a block south of King, in Toronto’s historic Garment and Warehouse District. It's a spacious, tree-lined boulevard and the perfect location for our summer terrasse and our private rear jardin. No noise, but birds in the trees and Ella on the soundtrack.

“A bistro where everyone is made welcome.”✭✭✭

What to look forward to

The rear jardin The rear jardin

The rear garden is equipped with infra red heaters, making it possible to lunch or dine longer on a cool evening. This is particularly helpful for private functions if guests wish to have a drink outside before coming in for dinner.

We only serve fish and seafood certified sustainable  by a reputable third party such as OcenaWise or SeaChoice. We also privilege organic ingredients, products from tradional farming, ethical husbandry, and seasonal gathering.

The critics are unanimous: Le Sélect Bistro is the most authentic Parisian bistro this side of the Atlantic, with great Bistro food, a traditional zinc bar, jazz on the soundtrack, friendly and attentive service, and the best winelist in the city: just close your eyes and you could be in the City of Light… except that the service is more gracious.

Downstairs in the wine cellar, there are 1,200 different labels and 95 beers from all parts of the globe. We buy our wines en primeur as soon as they've been released, and cellar them in ideal conditions. This allows us to keep our prices very fair.

If you've got a special wine of your own, then you're very welcome to bring it to Le Sélect - just let us know in advance. We charge a modest corkage fee: $18, or $25 if your wine needs to be decanted, $22 for Champagne and sparkling.

If you're interested in organizing a special private function, we can create a customized menu, and host your event in one of our private dining rooms.
