Excellent food - quality and variety. Great service and attention to detail. Highly recommend it…
This elegant restaurant is a must for a romantic dinner or special occasion. The food is superb, as is the service. From cocktails to appetizers to entrees to dessert, we had a fabulous time. It is pricey. But Vail.
Great place for French food overlooking Gore Creek
Great food and service
There was a challenge with the wine suggested by the sommelier, but he was very attentive and replaced the bottle with something that was acceptable. Our waiter was extremely helpful and professional.
A Vail classic has kept it's greatness. Great food, great service
This is an excellent restaurant. The French Onion soup was very good. The Rack of Lamb was exceptional. It was seasoned and cooked to perfection. Their selection of French wines was fantastic. If you enjoy fine dining, wines from France and French inspired cuisine, this is the best restaurant in Vail.
Celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and it was a lovely experience. The food was exceptional as well as the service.
Every course was outstanding. As always, we found the highest quality ingredients and presentation. No matter what you order, every mouthful is sigh worthy! The wait staff is still the best of the best. Highly attentive, helpful and timely-which I understand has been a challenge for other restaurants in the valley. The restaurant was full and our family really enjoyed an evening out. Thank you Left Bank!
I have been eating here for years (as a kid and now as an adult)... it’s a Vail classic and perhaps the restaurant with the best ambiance in the village...very fun place and the food is delicious! Great place for special occasions.
If you like classic French cuisine, then this is a place for you. Everything we had was excellent, with lobster bisque taking the prize. I gave it only 4 stars on 'Value' because some of the prices, such as for foie gras, are higher than anywhere else in the Vail Valley.
Finally a restaurant where you can hear your partner speak! Bravo for the quiet ambiance.
Food flavor profile is fair at best, and is stuck in the old ages. Felt this restaurant is for tourists to come once and perhaps old timers that like historic memories. They have so much potential, but felt like a lack of effort was given. Would recommend La Tour for French cuisine at Vail village.
Awful restaurant. The food was very average, the service extremely slow, NOT worth its price. For example, A tomato soup that tasted like it was just taken out of a can. But that was not the worst of it. We ordered a salmon that tasted oddly minty, a very strange taste that you don’t want in your overpriced food. So we notified our waiter and told him we would like to return it. When we got the check, they charged us the salmon we returned. We then notified the manager who gave us a terrible attitude and said that the chef decided he was not going to take it out of the bill. The attitude that the manager gave us was terrible. Don’t waste your time and money.
El mesero fue un poco arrogante
Excellent food and service, but the restaurant needs to update the menu out front as prices are lower than they are in the restaurant.
The soufflé had raw egg and caused an upset stomach
Excellent, well prepared food. I would prefer a bit better control of the dress code, considering the level of restaurant that they aspire to be. Backwards baseball caps and ripped jeans aren't appropriate in any high end french restaurant, ski resort or not.
The Absolute BEST.. Food was amazing.. Chef clearly cares about every single detail.. and all waitstaff was truly incredible!! Thank you
The food was delicious and our server was great.
The Left Bank is a Vail standard which has gotten better with age. Not unlike its competitor La Tour across the creek, it has brought classic French cuisine into the 21st century. Great ambience, efficient and friendly service, and an incredible wine list. For our family, our time in Vail is not complete without a visit to the Left Bank.
Always our favorite restaurant in Vail!!!! Fabulous food ambiance and service. Andy is a gracious host and always knows the perfect wine!
Absolutely awesome food. One of the best meals we have ever had!
Perfect for a big girl date night with bling. Visually amazing and incredible food. We will be back
Amazing service and fabulous food of the highest quality. From cocktails to soufflé, every mouthful is perfection. Go there!
Truly delightful culinary experience from beginning to end: professional’friendly staff, tasteful decor, well curated wine list; each dish we tried came out well executed from presentation to perfectly seasoned morsels of enjoyment. We will definitely be back next season and Left Bank will be at the top of our list for Favorite Dining Spots for Vail.
Excellent food excellent service pretty views. Made the occasion very special. The entrees include a salad which you can upgrade to a more fancy salad from the menu as an appetizer which makes the prices quite reasonable.
Left Bank was the cherry on top to our family ski week in Vail!
Always the best restaurant in Vail! Exquisite food and service!
Wow! My wife and I have been seasonal residents in Beaver Creek for 17 years. We decided this winter to dine and some of the classic Vail restaurants that we had never been to as a way to enjoy this difficult winter by doing something different. Most places have been very goods. But, The Left Bank is amazing! I have always intended to go there but always fell back to our usual places. I will now be a regular to make up for lost time. the walk up through the clutter of luggage carts and a drink cooler for hotel guests is a bit surprising. But, once you turn and enter the restaurant, it is magic. It feels like old Vail in the best possible way. A huge wine list, great cocktails, friendly staff, comfy decor and seating await you.
We had fresh oysters and the dover sole and all of it was wonderful. there was no over the top discussion about the selection of oyster or any other pretentiousness. Just wonderfully prepared, fresh oysters. The sole was a 2 person plate and finished tableside. You must order this on your first visit.
We finished with a shared chocolate souffle that was perfect as well.
I recommend you book a table as soon as you are done reading this!
This was a truly exquisite meal. I felt like I was in France. The service was impeccable and the Dover sole divine. There are other restaurants in Vail that tout themselves as French, but they are not. This is authentic and the setting was lovely. I’m only sorry I didn’t eat here twice during my stay. We will always come back to the left bank !
The Left Bank has been a favorite for us for many years .
The cuisine is exceptional !
We look forward to returning again and again .
As always the service was excellent and the food divine. Nothing is overlooked. Many of the dishes are served on pre warmed to maintain food temperature. We return here every time we come to Vail and have never been disappointed.
Excelent! Just avoid the chocolate or grand marnier soufflé. It’s not good. At all.
Buena cocina y atención aunque algunos meseros no son especialmente amables... que pena que todavía no se entienda el valor de un excelente servicio que hace la diferencia en tiempos difíciles
El lugar elegante pero relajado, el ambiente muy familiar y la comida, espectacular! Tienen una carta de vinos amplía, pero tuve la mala suerte de que 3 de los vinos que pedí no los tenían.
Sin duda un lugar al que hay que ir!!
It was a favorite many years ago back in the 90’s and haven’t been there in 20ish years..
Happy to say it was as good as we remembered!!
Excellent experience. A must when visting Vail.
Family Vail experience
Great service, great food, and great overall experience. High-end restaurant which is priced accordingly. Overall we were happy to pay for the experience and really amazing food. Will definitely come back here again.
