Selanne Steak Tavern unveils luxurious new dining experience

Selanne Steak Tavern is pleased to introduce a customized multi-course gourmet experience paired with exquisite wines from its Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence list – graciously served in a posh, ultra-private dining room located adjacent to the main restaurant, overlooking the culinary gardens and cozy patios.

The private atmosphere is an excellent choice for dining this coming holiday season for couples, families, and people who want their own exclusive dining space. The private dining venue accommodates parties of two to 12 and has its own kitchen and bespoke menus that focus on unique specialty products in season, some only available depending on the day, as well as opulent gourmet ingredients such as Wagyu beef, truffles, caviar, Nantucket scallops, duck, and octopus.

Selanne Steak Tavern, located at 1464 S Coast Hwy, opened in November 2013 and is owned by Hockey Hall of Famer Teemu Selanne and local Orange County businessman Kevin Pratt. 

Housed in a reimagined 1934 historic home along the Pacific Coast, it’s an upscale contemporary steak house with an upstairs dining room, downstairs tavern and bar area, a wine room for more intimate dining, and two patios for alfresco dining. 

The restaurant supports local farms and fisheries that practice sustainability and humane practices. Menus feature the finest of steaks and seafood served with a variety of accompaniments enhanced by herbs from the restaurant’s herb garden. Along with its carefully selected California-focused wine list, craft signature cocktails are created from quality farmers market produce, homemade mixers, and top-notch shelf spirits. Selanne Steak Tavern is open for dinner nightly starting at 5 p.m.
