    I got the cheese fondue it was good but way too much for one. For my main course I ordered Beef Bourguignon. But it wasn’t classic it was basically short ribs. It was ok but I really wanted the classic style. It was an ok restaurant on a busy street I most likely will not return.

    Great dinner at Left Bank! In our group we had steak frites (always excellent), a mahi mahi special, bouillabaisse, and salmon. Finished off with crème brûlée. Service superb as well. We will be back.

    I made a reservation for lunch and was seated across from the kitchen. Not necessarily the view I want to see. Took forever to get water or attention. Waiter was not friendly at all so that was a bummer. Food was not as good as I remembered. Eggs benedict was meh, egg was watery and had no seasoning, one yolk had slid off onto the plate. A few lousy potatoes accompanied the dish- inimpressed for sure. Burger and fries were pretty good. Overall, I probably would not return due to the overall experience.

    I've been lunching at The Left Bank for 10 years and always enjoyed their food, wine, service and ambience. If last Friday's lunch is any indication, they have slipped. I may give them one more try but I may not.

    We were seated in the corner outside and we were ignored by all of the wait staff for 30 minutes. They would walk by our table and completely ignore us. After talking to the host, we finally got some service. It pretty much ruined the evening. Food was great though.

    Food was ok, but the portions were very small and the entire menu was extremely overpriced. The service was not great. It took a while to be seated and they mixed up our tables. Our waitress did not bring the food in order and ended up trying to serve dessert before we even got our main entree. All in all, definitely not good value for money and not planning on going back again.

    I would like to extend my best review to the chef and all his kitchen staff. My wife and I have eaten all around the Bay Area and this has been the most complete meal we’ve had in a really long time. Her steak was perfectly seasoned and cooked to utter perfection. The gratin was layered perfectly and the potatoes didn’t have that rubbery texture to them like at many other restaurants.

    This place used to be good but service had gone completely down hill. The bread that we ordered came out cold and tasted very dry. I ordered a medium rare steak frites for my entree. The steak came out fully cooked. I flagged the waiter down to tell him this is not a medium rare. No apology or a single word from him. He took the plate away without saying a word and came back 5 minutes later with a new plate without uttering a single word and just walked away. He also did not introduce himself or the menu or come by to check us.

    We dine at this restaurant very frequently because of it's location, the ambiance, and some of the items on their menu are delicious. Our last visit was not that great to say the least. The host was very kind and she changed our table for us because my Dad is 83 years old and the booth was very low for him so we asked to get moved to half booth and half regular chair. She was kind enough to change our table but her face looked very irritated with us. I don't blame her though it's not easy to deal with elderly people. The rest of our visit was the part that was poor. Our waiter was not friendly at all and only came to our table to take our order and to drop off the bill. I had to look for him several times and even leave our table to go to him b/c he was not even looking in our direction. For the very first time in my life I left a 10% tip and to be honest I would have been ok not leaving any tip b/c our service was that bad. This is not a cheap restaurant but the service was worse than a Denny's.

    Food was dry and oily. My friends mom who is 80 said it was the worst omelet she ever had. My friends Nicose salad was oily. My omelet was oily and eggs overcooked. Service so slow, by the time we got salt and pepper we were 1/2 way done.

    Seated quickly. Staff was friendly. Waiter was hard to understand but polite. Problem was that he disappeared and when we asked for the check he brought the dessert menu then disappeared again. Ordered the raclette burger and halibut special. Both really disappointing. The burger was fine but nothing special. The halibut was small and not fulfilling. The sprouts sprouts were hard and had a bad aftertaste. Whats weird is the waiter said the halibut came with spinach but there was none. Left Bank has never impressed me. So really dont care to go back.

    We had salads for lunch. A limited lunch menu, with some good (expensive) entrees, but no sandwiches or typical lunch fare. Almost every menu item was overpriced. And online, a brunch menu is shown but wasn’t offered

    The food was very good. The service was slow. The waiter came to our table about 20 minutes after we were seated. We had to ask several times for water and or coffee. My friend had to ask for extra milk for her coffee about two times. It didn't seem that busy. However, when you are with good friends you always have a nice time.
