Very good steakhouse in the middle of Laguna, Tasty appetizers followed by a great ribeye. Service was excellent and a very enjoyable meal. As an avid hockey fan heard that Teemu stopped in regularly (not on our visit). Steakhouse atmosphere, easy to have a conversation....More

Great brunch – service, food and ambiance was delightful. If you haven’t been here yet, try their brunch - reasonably priced for excellent food, drinks and service. Selanne’s won’t disappoint.

Came here for my birthday celebration this year, and the food was amazing. Excellent ribeye, great atmosphere, and the Mac n Cheese was to die for. We still consider going back just for that!!

Loved our anniversary celebration here. Service was 5 star! I feel bad I forget our waiters name. He looked like a relative of Tyler Florence. ;) My husband said he had the best steak of his life. I would vote the crab appetizer was insane...More

Their website says they have gift cards available. However, it looks like you have to go in to purchase one, not available for online purchase.

I ordered ribeye @ $48.00. That does not include salad or sides such as potatoes, vegetables, etc. We brought our own favorite wine ($20. cork fee) and we still spent over $200.00 for two. But like I said; worth it!
