Fantastic. Great beer selection. Gumbo. Best I have had since I have been to New Orleans. Had a medley of red beans and rice, crawfish and shrimp dishes. Cajun dishes were superb. Fried catfish was outstanding. Fish fingers were excellent. Appetizers of fried tomatoes and calamari were great. Don't forget the bread pudding for dessert. Great service. Close parking. Super...

Although it was very crowded when we arrived at Selena's, we were welcomed by friendly staff. Our waiter was kind and professional , and the managers are available for any concerns. This is a casual and friendly restaurant! I recommend the the chicken picatta.

Went here for my birthday dinner. The place is lovely, but very relaxed. Service was excellent. The waitress went out of her way to describe portions, why things would come out the way they did (stuffed shrimp are very dark, but this is on purpose). We really enjoyed our dinner. No singing or free dessert, but the portions were huge... More

I eat here often and just love coming here. I was dining with family for my BDay and Selena's is close to where my brother lives and he's not been so I picked it as the location. My brother used to work as a cook at Furlongs in Lexington, so he knows the creole infusion well. My brother and dad... More

We absolutely love Selena's. This is our go to restaurant. In fact, we laugh and tell Alan Salmon, owner, that we need to quit recommending Selena's because it's so popular now. The food and service is always excellent. Can't say enough good things about this place. If you haven't tried Selena's, now is the time to do so!

Have eaten dinner here 2 times with a group on business and both times were awesome. Great food each time and wonderful friendly and attentive service. I like the atmosphere, not to fancy but very nice. Look forward to my next trip to Louisville, I will return.

Celebration dinner with 8 people. Everyone satisfied with great variety of choices - something for everyone. Prime rib, pasta, salads and delicious Cajun offerings. Definitely try the gumbo - best in Louisville. Calamari delicious, very fresh. Recommend reservations and be prepared for tight seating, tables really close together. Service was fantastic!

We had a Groupon and didn't expect much - but were pleased to find we loved the atmosphere and the food was delicious. My only critique would be that our waitress should have told us the dinner specials; she didn't offer any and we later heard other wait staff doing a great job of it. We loved the chicken parm...

We love the atmosphere during the winter months inside with a fire and the summer months sitting outside. The food never disappoints and the servers have always been great. My husband had fried shrimp and I had the 1979 Salad with blackened chicken. Both were good. Robert was our server and he was excellent.
