Wood floors on kitchen problem

We had wood floors installed in kitchen during kitchen reno. The more I look at the floors the more dissatisfied I become. I asked the contractor what grade of wood I received and he said select or better. From my research, the floor has too many knots and short boards to be this grade. We don’t want to rip the floor up but Im not happy. Some of the boards are 11 inches in length, there are some gaps between boards starting to show up, and the knots are very noticeable. The contractor is having a floor refinisher come to fix the gap and the swirl marks from the sander but I‘m worried it will look worse than it does now. I don‘t know if the floor people did not supply what was ordered or if the contractor is not being truthful. Where would you start?
