The quality of the food is excellent but the pricing of the meals and wine list make New York sound cheap. The table was poorly situated by a door leading to the out side, which was used frequently by the staff. I think you get a over dressed tavern with no views and pay a premium price. Pick something on the beach.

As one would expect, Selanne Steak Tavern is known for its selection and preparation of steaks. The spring pea soup was excellent. For our entree we both ordered the flat iron steak. The steak was tasty and was prepared precisely as we requested. The "sides" were presented as an easily shareable compliment to the entree. As expected for a fine dining restaurant, the service was professional and helpful, the presentation of the meal was excellent and the ambiance attractive. The modest downside was the meal was somewhat more expensive than expected, even for the high quality dining experience.

My wife and I went to Selanne's for our wedding anniversary and we couldn't be more pleased. We ordered the filet and wagyu and both were tasty and cooked perfectly. It was probably our favorite meal in Laguna and we can't wait to come back next year.

Selanne Steak Tavern is a very good steakhouse with a very nice decor and atmosphere. Service has been excellent. While the steaks are very good, they haven't been among the best I've ever eaten. Prices are par with the excellent steakhouses, and expectations should be set accordingly. I will likely return, but Selanne's is not at the top of my list when it comes to the best steaks in OC.

Wonderful location & atmosphere, classy but not too stuffy. The menu is extensive & wine list very good, however be prepared this is a restaurant for a special occasion. The bill was lumpy but enjoyable. Note to the kitchen however, my adult children were disappointed to find BBQ sauce on their grilled steaks (not stated on the menu), which really spoilt the steak as they like it just a slash of fresh lemon juice. It couldn't be removed properly & we were too embarrased to return it to the kitchen. Either state its added on the menu or serve to the side please ...... Great location on the highway & close to the beach for an after dinner stroll.
