Great food and service...just wish I could have had my coffee refilled or at least asked-
I needed to add people and change time of my reservation and they were very accommodating- greatly appreciated.
We had five people. I enjoy the Left Bank experience...but this time it was very ordinary. Choice was average...salads available were run-of-the-mill and so were the food choices. The Menlo Park branch is not nearly as good as the Larkspur one. It is okay...but I would say that the value equation has slipped.
Always a great lunch. Left Bank consistently serves good food, well-prepared and authentic. The service is good and the waiters are friendly. I'm never disappointed when I stop in for lunch or dinner.
Not happy with lunch bring served before appetizers. Had to ask for additional drinks to order and more bread to be brought to the table. The restaurant was not busy. No reason for our table to be attended to better.
Food was disgusting. Don’t order any seafood items they taste a week old. Waiter wiped his nose on his sleeve at least 50 times.
Valentines Day. Was great.
Valentine’s Day menu was the best food ever at this restaurant, great meal and ambiance
7:30pm Reservation. Seated at 8pm. First course 8:45pm. Entree’s at 9:15.
We had a lovely Valentines Day dinner with excellent food and service
Went on Valentine's Day with my wife. Our server (whose name escapes me) was fantastic and really added to the evening. He was attentive and very knowledgeable about the wine.
Service, food, overall experience: Excellent!
I really loved this place, the best french restaurant in silicon valley!
I tried the fondue, and it was amazing... The place is awesome!
I go to Left Bank Menlo Park approximately once a quarter. I still like the restaurant--the food is very good and the ambiance of the restaurant is very nice. The service this time was disappointing. There was a very small luncheon crowd, yet, we could not get a server to even come to the table for almost 10 minutes. When he came, he did not, as most servers would do, ask if we wanted something to drink. Bread came when I asked for it. The meal, however, was served timely, and the server was more attentive after the initial delay. My guest and I both had salads and pommes frites. The salads were very good.
To be honest, based on the reviews I read and having reviewed the menu prior to making the reservation, I was disappointed. The service was okay, and for most of the meal our server was never around. We were greeted by our server soon after seating, but then she disappeared for an extended period of time before coming back for our orders. Little things like pouring wine, checking to see how things were from time to time once the food came just didn't happen. Also, our mains meals came out before we were half way done our appetizers. They took them back, and brought them later, but you wonder whether they made them again or just kept them warm. The real disappointment was the food itself. The Gambas were fine for flavor, but they were whole shrimp. It would have been nice to have the tail split at least to make for easier access to the meat since not everyone is into easting shells. Escargot were okay, but like the other things, not much in the way of flavor. The duck was nicely cooked and the meat tender, but the overall dish was bland. Same with the rigatoni. About the only thing that came out as I would have expected was the Beef Bourguignon. It was pretty good. So overall, I expected much more given that the menu looked very interesting.
Wow! What happened to Left Bank. A decade ago this was a thriving hot spot with real food depicting the beautiful simplicity of French countryside cuisine.
We experienced a ten to fifteen minute wait until we were approached by waitstaff and provided menus. It was Super Bowl Sunday, so I think they were busy watching the game.
The food was less than mediocre. The sauce with the escargot was heavy on the oil served with old chewy stale slices of baguette. The truffle fries- clearly were Sysco food distributors finest flash frozen. Truffles on the truffles Frits ? Ha- Never saw them, or tasted truffle oil.
My eating partner ordered seafood soup and the waiter told us that there were no mussels - he opted to have it anyway when the dish arrived it was full of muscles unfortunately the saffron sauce was ice cold and he didn’t even get any bread to mop it up with or a bowl for the shells.
I ordered a burger to play it safe- it arrived- clearly it was a frozen premade burger and my bun was so hard and stale I opted not to eat it —probably just save myself some empty calories anyway.
We decided to suck it up and move on to dessert because what sweet can’t make bad meal good again. Wrong—
The Cannelles were still FROZEN on the inside and the cream Brûlée was so off-portioned, the waiter brought us two cause he felt bad- and said two makes one normal portion. The custard was so thick you could cut it with a knife. What happened to this place. We paid the bill that was over 100$ ( now I wish we disputed) we ended up going next door, and eating a real French meal at the bar!
I’ll NEVER go to Left Bank again! WOW! #FakingFrench
The waiter sympathized with us by the end of the evening. Clearing he was trying to get through it just like we were.
