Always great. Love this place every single time. Service is flawless.
This is the second time we've been to this restaurant together and we have enjoyed our meal and experience both times. Most recently, we made a last minute reservation for Christmas Eve. Even after receiving a call from the restaurant about how we were able to make a reservation at that time [remember that it was Christmas Eve], they absolutely were happy to honor our reservation and welcomed us openly.
Our food was delicious, service amiable and not rushed. Even though we were the last table seated for the night, our food was served at a comfortable pace. We could enjoy our food, our conversation, and taking our time. He mad the mussels with fries, and it was a huge dish, and yet he enjoyed it a lot. I had a pulled chicken dish with celery root that was delicious. We both enjoyed the parsnip and apple soup. Perfect for a cold and windy night. Cocktails were just right.
One of the real gems of West Village dining! Each year for the past four or five, we spend Christmas Eve here. The fabulous food, interesting cocktails, ambiance, and terrifically knowledgable and friendly service have kept us coming back for years. Bravo Left Bank!
Christmas Eve. The food was superb, especially the pulled chicken with frizzled onions. Perfect evening and great service!
Our first visit, and we would definitely go back. Flavourful food, perfect device and a relaxed atmosphere.
Our extended family went for an Xmas Eve dinner and had a splendid time. Bobby and his team made us feel so welcome. Excellent food and service. We will be back and strongly recommend.
An absolute neighborhood gem!
I've been to Left Bank a few times and recommend it. It's a quaint restaurant where the food and service is always good. It's not a huge menu but they cover all bases (meat, fish, veggies). I like that it's a smaller, more intimate locale.
EVERYTHING WAS XCELLENT. However acoustics were poor and very loud at 8pm on a Friday nite!
Lively and friendly ambiance on a Thursday night. Food was imaginative, tasty, and not crazily priced for what it was. As with many Manhattan restaurants, I found the space between two-tops to me the stuff of comedy. There really was no way to even slide between tables to sit down without dipping your sleeve into the neighbor's sauce. If they're going to do it communal style, they should just advertise it as such. However, they were easy about switching to the bar where service was great and the atmosphere cheerful.
My go-to spot for just about any reason. Happy hour, spontaneous dinner, or big work dinner. This place never disappoints and impresses the pickiest of people. It feels like a hidden treasure - not sure if that’s true - but I’d like to think so.
We randomly decided to go to dinner in the West Village without making a reservation (risky). We stumbled upon Left Bank and they had plenty of seating. The food was on point. I had the PAPPARDELLE ALLA BOLOGNESE, SLOW COOKED BEEF & PORK RAGU and my husband had a burger. The pasta was amazing. My only hesitation is the prices. For a burger, pasta, a "squash salad" which was literally just seasoned squash, a beer, and two glasses of wine (all at happy hour prices) we paid over $130. If you don't mind dropping that on a quick dinner then this place is good for you. But you can find exceptional menu items at the same price, or less, if you make a reservation in advance, somewhere else.
Excellent meal, wonderful staff. Would go back in a heartbeat.
We were in town for Thanksgiving and needed to find a place in the neighborhood for Sunday brunch. I am not a fan of waiting in line to eat so I chose Left Bank NYC mainly because I could get a reservation at the time we needed. What a wonderful surprise! It has a very neighborhood-y feel, and was very cozy. We were meeting our son who works nearby and had loads of luggage, which the staff was very gracious about. In fact, everyone there was incredibly friendly, and our food was perfect. My son and I loved the avocado toast, bacon and sausage, and my husband’s burger was excellent. We enjoyed lingering after our meal, and did not feel rushed at all. A very relaxing end to our stay!
We went to the Left Bank for Thanksgiving dinner. The hot toddies were perfect for a warm upon an unusually cold day. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed. Our waiter was divine and the food perfect. We would definitely recommend to others.
We were in town for Thanksgiving. Found a good review online, so booked a table. The food was amazing. Not just really good, it was amazing! We eat very well at home, but this was over the top. Loved it!
The pre dinner cocktails finally arrived, but WITH the dinner!!!! Chaos and no festive Thanks Giving moments.
This is a favorite local go to.
Great food but a little overpriced.
An old friend and I had a wonderful dinner experience at this classic village venue. Food was superb, service friendly but not overbearing. Places like this - comfortable and elegant, with a civilized level of noise - seem to be far and few between these days.
We had to go back a second time during the week. Every dish was marvellous and great service - thank you Natalie. Great organic wine options. Great job!
I love this place -- which is why I keep going back.
The only improvement? Some noise dampening so it would be quieter
Loved, loved, loved Left Bank!!!!!!!!! Will definitely go back to Left Bank soon!
This is a good neighborhood place. The first time I went there because I don't live close by. The menu is limited so look at it before making a reservation. Mostly pastas and a few other entrees. Nice appetizers and friendly staff.
Amazing. The food was outstanding. The waitstaff was friendly. The wine and cocktails were all perfect pairings for the meals.
Great neighborhood spot with good food! Good specials too!
Left Bank is always a welcoming place. As soon as you walk in the staff is warm and accommodating . It is my to to place for incredible home made pasta, and the best chicken in town. The menu changes, but there are some staples that may have new iterations. I , for one, and crazy about the chopped liver bruschetta , with garlic butter and walnuts. Right now there is leek , bean and parmesan rind soup, that I can't wait to go back for. The brioche perdu, with creme fraiche and gelato is definitly something I look forward to having again !
We came here for our anniversary and it was a wonderful experience! From the service to the food to the music, everything was perfect. The suggested wines paired perfectly with our dishes and the cocktails were well-balanced and inventive. The burger was outstanding and the seasonal pastas were delicious. Our waiter really took care of us and made our night special! Definitely recommend!
Overall this had highly disappointing service with an inattentive waiter who needed to be prompted multiple times to get his attention. For drinks taking our orders etc. other diners got there dinners before us even though they arrived later. This is not acceptable and too bad since the food itself was good.
Our waiter Peter was awesome - very attentive and funny!
The restaurant was good & in a cute neighborhood. Definitely more of a place to go for a great happy hour. The food wasn’t the best but was good quality. I got the gnocchi and my boyfriend got the salmon and honestly we were expecting a lot more for plates that were $24 & $26.
We’ll be back for happy hour. But a little pricy for a date night dinner.
Food was delicious, however, the A/C wasn't working very well. My group was sweating through our entire meal. Might be better to go when there isn't a heat wave in NYC.
The total package--food, service, and attention to detail. The chicken dish is amazing and the asparagus starter is great. For dessert, the maple syrup pie is recommended and not at all sweet in the bad way you might expect. Wine list is very good. Service was attentive and professional.
Nice place, cool vibe but no A/c - only fans on the hottest day of the year
Charming with great service. However there was no AC on a very hot summer day.
We had a great brunch here. The cheese omelette may be the best I have ever had. And the berry Dutch pancake is awesome.
Roast chicken was amazing!
Great food & service ! Dining room gets a little loud when it's full, but the food makes up for the noise !
Restaurant was unbelievably noisy nearly impossible to hear my friend from across the table food was fine but our server, nice fellow, was overwhelmed, will never return.
The salmon belly, watermelon & caper appetizer is so incredibly surprisingly delicious and satisfying. I made my reluctant husband try it , and he was hooked right away also , even though he can’t stop ordering the fagiole ! The chicken iteration is always a favorite of mine. Sometimes it changes , but is always delicious! The crowd always seems to have a good vibe. Great place to meet up with friends , or a date night !
