    I have been to this location many times. We have even booked events here. Since the pandemic, there has been a substantial decrease in the quality of the meals. Our calamari was mostly breading and many pieces were tough. The Escargot was just okay but nothing special. The fish (Salmon) was good, but the sides were less than desirable. Their signature Skirt Steak was very good, but that's it. The servers and staff was the best part. They did an excellent job, but they seem very overworked... so, getting their attention was sometimes difficult. It took over 10 minutes (and asking a few people) to get a small dish of butter, for example. However, the free desert for our birthday girl was much appreated. My advise is that they do some Q/A on the food coming out of the kitchen to bring the meals back to their historical quality.

    I ordered the French Onion Soup and it was excellent, but I didn't care for the Bib Lettuce Salad because it was too bland with the dressing. My server took my order, but he was mostly MIA during most of the time I ate lunch. I asked one of the men who clean and set up the tables for more dressing for my salad, but he never brought it. I saw my server and asked him and he brought me more dressing. This is the second time I've eaten on the patio at Left Bank and both times my server was MIA. I think would have enjoyed my meal more if I had ordered a different salad than the Bib Lettuce. The Croissant Breakfast Sandwich I had the last time I ate here was excellent.

    As always, the food was wonderful. Service was a little off but not horrible, just not up to their regular awesome service and attentiveness. While we got a table reservation easily, last minute, and it didn’t seem that busy, two servers said they were really busy. Maybe back of the house issues or reduced staff. We had a wonderful time. Food was good, like everywhere, prices keep going up.

    Usually a reliable place to go but this outing was disappointing. Table was set up very quickly for us but took several reminders to have them seat us. The food was good but cocktails were a disaster. Either a bad bartender on duty or they are using spoiled alcohol. Service was hard to get and actually cost them since we would have ordered more drinks and desserts. There was also a 5% service charge on the bill described as mandatory but wasn't mentioned and the suggested tips were still 18%, 20% and 25%. NOTE either make it a 20% service charge or don't bother. Since we've had more good than bad experiences we will try again but hopeful they are paying attention. thanks!

    We got seated and one of the chairs wasn’t cleaned up so my sister in law got ketchup on her white jeans. The manager was graceful and offered some service recovery for it which really made up for that part. Then our food came out and 3 of the 4 orders were wrong. So my sister in law had her food way before us. Just not her luck today lol. Overall a good experience but not sure I would go back

    Fondue was good but the other starters were just ok. Calamari was not hot and escargot was average. Mains came out - one was stone cold (steak frites) and one never came at all - but he did get his side of mash to be getting on with! Sent the cold steaks frites back and they made another which arrived just as the rest of us has finished our meals. Duck was dry, salty pretty poor. The Bouillabaisse was good and hot as was the onion soup. Finally the salmon arrived and was eaten before the reheated mash came back - and was sent away. There are many places to eat here in Santana Row - we won’t waste our time coming here to Left Bank.

    The food is always great. We always love going to Left Bank. However, last night the bathrooms REALLY needed attention for a long period of time. Our dining experience was four hours long, and the only time the bathrooms got attention was at the end of the evening. This is important when people are having drinks.

    Had a light dinner with a friend from overseas. The portion were good for a light dinner - had escargots which were awesome. The French onion soup were also great and just the right temperature. The Trout almandine were exceptional though. Would love to return given the opportunity.

    The food was very good and we liked our waiter but the kitchen/bar were not prepping food/drinks in a timely manner. Our main course came out before our salad, the bread never arrived and when we ordered a glass of wine to go with the main course that came out early it took forever to arrive.
