It is one of my most favorite spots in York. The 6oz filet was cooked perfectly and was so tender! Also, there is a nice selection of wines by the glass, and I’m partial to French wines so I appreciated the selection. I also had dessert, the creme brûlée was delicious. I sat at the bar and the service was excellent!! Love this place.

Staying in York for the night, chose Left Bank . Bartender was great , very attentive and personable.
Wine list had a nice selection, evening special soup was great as well as our entree of papperadelle with scallop and shrimp. Scallops were succulent and perfect as well as the shrimp. Definitely worth visiting this gem.

Things must have changed here. We drive from Baltimore once or twice per year to meet family for dinner. The service was not good (eg ordered bottle of wine and no taste offered) and food was ok and uneven.

Left Bank used to be the finest dining in York County, and our go to restaurant for special event fine dining. It pains me to write this review, but the new owners and potential diners need to know that it no longer lives up to this former standard. The menu is very limited, and frankly uninteresting. We ordered small plate apps, which never arrived. Salad was mediocre, and the cuts of meat were extremely fatty, and the vegetable side unimaginative. Furthermore, professional chefs understand that we eat with our eyes, and presentation matters. The presentation throughout was just plain ordinary. Our server did apologize about the missing apps, and dessert was comped, although the desserts were also unremarkable. We were extremely disappointed overall - not the dining experience we had anticipated.

As York has added more dining options, I'm hopeful the owners of Left Bank recognize that changes need to be made. Until we hear that they have, we will take our business elsewhere.

This was an absolutely exquisite dining experience, the sauce for the calamari was incredible and the roasted duck dinner was second to none! The waiter did a great job providing service (though he seemed slightly distracted and forgot to bring us the bread that he reminded us he didnt forget), the food completely filled that minor gap which earned him a 20% tip and our very sincere compliments to the Chef. It was my 10 year anniversary and 1 year wedding anniversary and even though the table they reserved for us was still occupied by a group that showed up 30 minutes late to their reservation, they made certain to give us our choice of where we sat. This was an unequivically exquisite dining experience.

Very nice ambiance and setting with good service. Not impressed at all with food quality or drinks for the price. Fish was over cooked and side were cold. Cocktails were very weak. I don’t complain normally as I am used to paying for good food and drinks. In this instance I’d consider it high priced for mediocre food and drink quality. I don’t see myself returning.

We had such a great experience at The Left Bank Restaurant. Making the reservation was easy with OneTable. I even called the restaurant to confirm they had received the submission, as I had not used OneTable before. They had it and knew and were ready for us to arrive!
The food is excellent! While the price may be high for some, it was a treat for my family to go there. The food and the service made the price completely worth it! It happened to be my mom's birthday that day and the waiter heard us talking, so he had the pastry chef decorate her dessert plate special, lit a candle, and even joined in as we sang her "Happy Birthday!"
Thank you to the wonderful staff at The Left Bank Restaurant!

I hadn't always been thrilled with the food here in the past but recently went back to give it another shot. I was pleasantly surprised. My filet was cooked to perfection and the accompanying brussels sprouts were seasoned well. For dessert, we tried the homemade ice cream, a scoop of pumpkin and a scoop of white chocolate. It was amazing.

The service was impeccable, which always makes for an enjoyable experience.

My husband had eaten at The Left Bank years ago and had been wanting to go back for a long time. So he, my BFF and I went there after a show at the Appell Center. It was WONDERFUL!!! The food was amazing and the service was excellent! We will be going back hopefully very soon.

Food was really good. Seating was ok but got put right next to the kitchen so that took a little bit of the ambiance away, although not that big of a deal. I would definitely go back.

We arrived a few minutes prior to our reservation and were seating promptly. The overall feel of the restaurant was nice and calm but I’m sure on a weekend it’s a little more lively.
It took a few minutes for our waited to come by and take our drink orders. With the environment and our waiter the place did feel a bit stuffy but what else would you expect from one of the few high end restraints of York.
Overall the food was great, steak tartare, duck, and lobster pasta was delicious. Our waiter could of been a little less robot and bring more personality.
When back in the area, we will probably visit again.
