Left Bank is an authentic Parisian-style brasserie located in San Jose's vibrant Santana Row. Open since 2003, Left Bank transports guests to a quaint brasserie in Paris, where diners feast upon classic French cuisine in a charming brasserie setting along the boulevard, where people watching is at its best. Inside, the wonderful energy of an authentic French brasserie is in the air. Boasting Santana Row's largest bar, Left Bank is a place to see and be seen.

The large, casual elegant main dining room offers everything from a family table of 20, to a quiet, romantic table for two. The open exhibition kitchen provides onlookers a window into the magic our chefs create. Whether simply sipping a pastis or enjoying a full meal, diners capture the true feeling of the Rive Gauche in Paris.

We enjoy Left Bank for Sunday brunch. Even with a drizzly Sunday, the atmosphere is warm and inviting inside. Love the food, consistenly good and the truffle fries are outstanding.

Went here for date night. Pate appetizer was ok, but uninspired. Special Rhone wine flight was unremarkable. Beef Bourguignon was impressively quite dry and chewy. Not your best bet at Santana Row.

Easy to make reservation through open door. A bit spendy but it’s Santana Row.

Onion soup was good. Cheese fondu was also good. Other food though was typical of the Bay Area, not cooked by French cooks...not at all. So if you are not from France, have never been there and never tasted French cooking and work as a cook in a French Restaurant, then you really have no idea what you are doing. So congrats on the fondu and the bowl of soup, but the rest of it really tasted like something from the cooks at Dennys or IHOP.

We made a reservation a week before and we made sure to arrive on time but had to wait 20 min to sit down. They then wanted to seat us in an outside extension room that was overheated and stuffy, so we asked to sit somewhere else, they refused and said it’s the assigned table for you. We asked to talk to the manager and yes he was able to accommodate us and he moved us. The service was very poor, they were overwhelmed with VDay. We ordered appetizers, one of them never showed up, dinner came so we asked to cancel it. We asked for bread twice when we sat down, and it never came! Over priced set menu and servers not trained to handle busy holiday celebrations! It was very unfortunate because it wasn’t only Valentine’s Day but our daughter’s 17th birthday, Won’t be going there again:(

Good food and service. Pricer for the seafood but great quality.
