Left Bank is an authentic Parisian-style brasserie located in the historic Blue Rock Inn in charming downtown Larkspur. Built in 1895 during the railroad era, The Blue Rock Inn was a popular weekend destination for San Franciscans to come dance and picnic under the stars.

Open since 1994, Left Bank continues to be a destination for folks from all over the Bay Area to enjoy a casual snack on the sunny terrace, a glass of wine or hand crafted cocktail at the lively bar, or an elegant dining experience near the fireplace. At Left Bank, you are sure to capture the true feeling of the Rive Gauche in Paris.

Twenty three years of working with local organic farms allows us to bring you the best seasonal ingredients available. Our Chef de Cuisine offers an often changing, French brasserie menu of hearty, rustic, and authentic dishes featuring a diverse selection of natural meats, sustainable seafood, fresh local vegetables, salads and sumptuous desserts.

Our Salles Des Amis is a beautiful, private dining room, with sunny yellow walls, airy windows, warm mahogany accents and vividly colored French posters. Set-up however you wish—the room is large enough for a party of 35, yet intimate enough for a smaller group of 10 or 20.

Have a party bigger than 35? For 75 people or less, we close off the back half of the restaurant, the Grand Salon. The Grand Salon & Salles de Amis opened up as one large room is the perfect space for a larger group.

We were a group of 10 and had a wonderful server. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the wine and the food.

Had a wonderful dinner, great waitperson (female), and loved the energy there. We were celebrating a birthday and had a great time.

We were very happy with our first visit to Left Bank. Our meal was as expected, well prepared and everyone was very friendly. Brenden was our server and he was amazing.; personable, funny, knowledgeable and professional. We dine out frequently and travel substantially and have never met a server with Brenden’s passionate energy and clear love of his role representing Left Bank. We love Larkspur and we will definitely be back to Left Bank and to see Brenden.

I hate restaurants that pretend to be fine dining for pricing, but don’t hold their kitchen staff and servers to the standards worthy of those prices. I will never go here again.

Once the Open Table reservation hassle was handled, due to the fact that reservation turned out to be for outside on a cold Valentine's Day night, there was never any indication on the reservation email sent to us. However after a slight wait, The Left Bank staff rectified this issue. The meal however, was truly wonderful and the rest of the evening was great. Thank you!

We had a great meal for Valentine's Day! Good food and ambiance. They did run out of some of the options on the prix fixe dinner which was disappointing, but they bent over backwards to accommodate us.

I was greatly impressed by the reception. Our reservation was for the outside dining, which is great for the summer but chilly for late Winter early Spring. They were able to find a table in doors, which was greatly appreciated.
