Very good French cuisine and the waiter we had was very attentive
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.
Their brunch is out of this world. Love this spot! Make a resi though. It's a popular restaurant.
My fav, always enjoy every minute. Food is great, and staff knows us.
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.
I had really high expectations for this place. We ate here on V'day and most of our food was cold and bland. I ordered from the Prix Fix menu and my partner ordered from the regular menu. My lobster was cold and had zero seasoning. My partner's salmon was overcooked. The server was not very attentive and honestly treated us as if he did not want to be there. Everyone received a Rose except for us. We were so frustrated with the sub-par food and service that we did not bother to complain, paid for our food and left. We drove from Oakland to San Jose so this truly was a complete waste of our time. Maybe this was an "off" night!
We had a Valentine's lunch and our reservation was for 11:45. We were seated promptly, but for some reason the service was very slow and took an hour to get our food. This left a bad taste in our mouth considering the occasion.
Food was good but felt could have been better for the price, bread was cold, seafood was no as good as anticipated but good
The Open Table reservation process asks about special occasions, which we had filled out. No acknowledgment of the occasion, a crappy table that was absurdly dark, and general "you're not worthy" vibe from the hostess/seaters. Server was pretty good, food was fine. But I left with a bad taste in my mouth from the attitude.
My husband and I had a wonderful time. The food and service was fantastic. It was our first time at Left Bank. We were celebrating our 40th Anniversary. The restaurant gave us free champagne and dessert! We were very happy and completely satisfied.
I really like the Left Bank. I've had excellent meals there and great experiences. This past Sunday wasn't up to usual standards, but if nothing else, it was a lovely day and we had an outside table so it was a lot about location, location, location. This occasion was lunch with friends, one of whom came down from San Francisco to join us. The host was very kind in accommodating our request for an outside table. I get that it's first come, first serve, but on a sunny day they ought to open up the side section so more people get a chance to enjoy the ambience.
The food was spotty. My husband loved his pork hash and my friend's steak frites were perfect. Two of us had the ham cheese omelette. Mine was not great. The egg part was OK although not super hot by the time it reached me. But the ham was cold and the cheese hadn't melted at all. I don't like to fuss about food when I've brought guests so I let it go but it was disappointing. There's something about an omelette done well and I was looking forward to it.
There were other trivial glitches, but they add up: My husband ordered coffee but the server forgot. Then she brought a cup without a saucer. Also the coffee had been spilled all over the cup so it looked like a dirty dish out of the dishwasher. We had to ask for bread (in a French restaurant?!). All in all, the server was pleasant and willing to be helpful but seemed inexperienced. I still really like the Left Bank, and I'm sure I'll be back, but I hope this isn't a trend because that would be sad.
Thank you for the great service . Our table was exactly what we asked in our online reservation. Service was great and staff very polite.
Like other restaurants I've been to in Santana Row, my wife and I found Left Bank to be overpriced for the value. The food itself was just ok, with no real sense from the servers that anything special was happening in the kitchen, though we still ended up with a bill well over $100 for 2 (with 3 cocktails, an app, and 2 entrees). The place was noisy, and the service was over-extended, so felt slow. If you go, make a reservation for outside if possible... it's less noisy, and the best thing about this spot is the people watching, which is a combination of fascinating and amusing.
If you're looking for wonderful French inspired food, I'd recommend looking elsewhere... come here for the people watching and convenient dinner options before a movie, as long as you don't mind spending more than you should...
Loved going here on a special family day. First, it’s a lovely French restaurant with sophisticated wait staff and excellent decor. Food was simple and delicious. We ordered sandwiches and salad. The bread was crunchy and my eggs were covered in tangy lemony sauce. The salad was lightly dressed crispy lettuce. My daughter had chicken from the kids menu and she was happy. We had pastry and ice cream covered with chocolate sauce such a generous portion enough for 3. Fun place to people. Great price, great value. We’ll go back there.
We ate at Left Bank for lunch, the food was AMAZING and the service was outstanding.
delicious french food! this is out go to french restaurant these days.
Good food and wine and the wait staff was very efficient.
Good quality French brasserie cooking. My first time inside in their unpleasantly noisy interior. I have always eaten outside in the past, and the restaurant was easy to recommend if that is your intention.
I come back here for the food and service - both awesome!
Service was excellent but restaurant is a bit noisy.
Deserts were late/ delayed due a large group of 100x ahead of us.
Managers comp 'ed us the deserts but we would rather have been to finish dinner sooner.
Skirt steak was slightly over charred, but interior was still cooked perfectly. I will definitely be returning.
The outdoor Patio area is great for a relaxed Sunday Brunch with friends or family. The food choices are excellent with regular updates to the menu and the service is just the perfect pace.
Great service, yummy food, a bit on the noisy side, but we still had a good time!
