There were four of us for the first time and we all enjoyed the food. Three of us had the prix fixe menu which was a great value and my husband ordered off the menu. Service was very attentive and we enjoyed our evening. We'll be back!

I had heard about Left Bank
I had heard about Left Bank Bistro's great steak tartare and was delighted when they were able to produce it despite it not being on the menu! It was wonderful,complete with quail egg! The service was attentive. I got the sense they loved their food and were proud to serve it. The wine cellar is an old bank vault! We'll go back and also for the BYO special on Monday too.

the place on avenue Rd
i must say this is a hidden gem on Avenue Rd. The chef at Left Bank Bistro is doing magic. The french onion soup was to die for and my wife had one of the best Arugula salads she has ever had. I had the daily fish special of Sea scallops that were cooked to perfection seared crispy and just warm in the centre with a basqueae sauce that was delightful. My spouse had duck confit on paperdelle that had flavours that were out of this world. There wine list is average and prices reasonable, i would highly recommed this restaurant. The wait staff are knowledgable and professionale. We will be back to check out there new brunch menu that looks great.

Left Bank Bistro very enjoyable
A very pleasant setting, an oasis of calm and relaxation. The service was very attentive. The food was excellent and plentiful, even the salad was substantial in size and deliciously fresh. The mushroom soup was creamy and subtly flavoured; the steak and frites juicy and crunchy. The pièce de résistance was the crème caramel, a perfect finish to a wonderful meal.

Live Guitar Adds to the Ambiance
We were celebrating an adult birthday, and this was the perfect spot. The waiter was attentive without being OTT and the food extremely good. The server placed a candle on our dessert without me asking him to do so. Nice touch. We asked to have an ingredient removed from one of the mains - the waiter happily made that request, and replaced the item with more of other ingredients.
The one-man guitar entertainment was very enjoyable. Not too loud, but great background sound - and a very accomplished guitarist. Bravo!
I would recommend The Left Bank for small and large gatherings. We were there on a quiet Friday night in June, but we've been there on winter weekends, and the place was hopping - in a good way.
Thanks, Left Bank!

Still one of our faves, despite ...
We live in the area and have been coming to the restaurant since it has been open. On this particular occasion we were a party of 7, celebrating a birthday on a Monday evening. We had with us 3 children, one of which needed a booster. The restaurant does not provide any. The restaurant was quite busy, partly due to a $0 corkage special on a Monday evening. There were only 2 servers available for the entire place. Our server was less than satisfactory. We had to request bread, get our own salt & pepper, and wait a while to order. A simple smile would have pacified the situation, but none was provided. We would still come back, as we really like the food ... but will hope for a different server.

Pleasant, competent local resto
A quiet, straightforward French style restaurant in an area of north Avenue Road that doesn't have a lot of places for special occasions. Not a large or fashionable menu by Toronto norms, but the French standard dishes are well done, the service is competent and friendly, and the wine list suitable. Not crowded, but deserves attention as I've never had a disappointing meal here.

I've driven past this place a few times and always wanted to pop in. This weekend I did!
Great little french bistro with a lot of choice.
I started with the french onion soup which was outstanding. Most soups are usually all broth but this was loaded with onion and cheese. Totally recommend. Next I had the mushroom and spinach crepe. Not a fan of the crepe itself because it was a little doughy for me, but still packed with flavor. Came with a side green salad which was just enough.
Server was an older french man who made our experience very nice and always greeted us with a smile.
Very affordable, will be going back for an evening meal at some point .

Great find in North York!
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.
