  • "Spent a few hours of wonderful treat at this restaurant. As a home chef myself, I enjoyed every bit of the fresh ingredients and well plated dishes. Everything was well done! Highly recommend my friends to try and I will surely go back."

  • "The restaurant was so empty we walked in at a reasonable hour and they turned us away. Didn't even have the chance to try their food"

  • "Food was good but there was a very funky smell in the restaurant. It smelled like they were using pot pourri to cover the smell of sewer."

  • "The menu is not extensive but varied enough to suit most palates. Good choice of salads and appetizers. Food was very good and cooked perfectly. Service was excellent and the ambience was great. Will definitely be back. Great local restaurant."

  • "My girlfriend and I went for valentine's day. There was a $60 prix fix. The presentation of the food was beautiful and the food itself was edible but the portions were very small and despite quality ingredients, the flavour just wasn't there. The servers were very friendly but were wearing jeans and casual shirts and the atmosphere was kitschy."

  • "When we arrived at 6PM, the restaurant was empty except for one table, but pretty soon it got filled. The service was very good, the food was amazing, presentation was very good. It was quiet enough for us to have a conversation & hear each other. The beufe Bourgignon was excellent as was the steak fritte. We all agreed that we would go back again."

  • "We found the menu a little limited but were able to order good meals...all of us were satisfied with our choices. However, for a Friday night at 8pm, the place felt abandoned. There were about 2 or 3 other tables and one of them was engaged in an uncomfortable and loud-ish difference of opinion. By 9:30 it was only us (there were 3 of us) and at 10 they told us they were locking the doors soon. So, no...not great ambience. Additionally, the place felt a little stark for what I think of as fine French. No real decor."

  • "Wonderful evening and great spot to celebrate and catch up with a close friend. Resataurant was quiet on a Tuesday evening but waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and courteous. We didn't order it but at the end of the meal, he surprised us with a slice of birthday cake with a candle, for my friend. Excellent evening all around. I would definitely recommend."

  • "What a surprise! I had an amazing experience with this Bistro. Small and cozy. Love the traditional French dishes and yet with a choice of Chef's special. We both tried their soups special: Cream of Mushroom and Lobster bisque. Both got a 10 from us. Lovely evening. Satisfying and yet affordable. Great job! Well done!"

  • "Good food, nice atmosphere, excellent service and easy to walk to! I enjoyed the mushroom soup and the Steak Frites and my wife enjoyed the French onion soup and Snapper."

  • "We were at the Left Bank Bistro shortly after the ice storm, and things were very quiet - nice for us, but they deserve more business than they had that night. The menu is impressive: an appropriately limit range, so they're not trying to do things they're not good at, and you know things are fresh. From what we saw, the service would be good even with a crowd. We will certainly go again."

  • "Wonderful, warm service. We had the classics there - french onion soup and steak frites, and they did not disappoint. Other dishes could use a bit more work (the duck confit fettucini). Stick with the classics and you'll want to come back!"

  • "For our first time there, we enjoyed our lunch. The daily omelette was fresh and very tasty-arugula and mushrooms with salad. The waiter was most accommodating and very friendly. He made us feel very welcome. The menu for lunch was varied from crepes-both savoury and sweet to a burger. Of course there was quiche as well. I hope the restaurant catches on in the neighbourhood as it is a gem. Great place to have a bite and actually talk with friends over good food."

  • "The Left Bank Bistro is a fabulous choice if you enjoy refined French food prepared with love and served with humour and style. The owner is originally from Montreal and really knows what great and authentic French onion soup is as well and moules in garlic sauce and superb gallic dishes. The ambiance is chic but not over-the -top and the noise level is unobtrusive. Delightful! Birdie"
