    The service was fantastic, with our waiter being knowledgeable about the menu and which items to order or were most popular. The portion sizes were very appropriate too. The food tasted fresh and high quality.

    Once we got it food was good, but service intermittent and lacking. Had to send poached eggs back because they were hard cooked. But major problem was slow service sometimes incorrect- things promised did not come

    I had lunch with a dear friend and we had a lot to talk about, as one does! Our wait person respected that, and after we ordered, our salads came out looking beautiful. Her's looked a bit small, but she enjoyed it, and we had time to have some post-lunch coffee. A delicious lunch with plenty of time and space to connect!

    This spot is not what it used to be. Onion soup was excellent and we should have stopped there. Salads were bad as the lettuce had not been dried, so watery and not good. Hamburger had a bad chemical taste (maybe propane) so, for the first time since I remember, I ate only half and left the other half for landfill. We will not be hurrying back.

    Ciara (sp?), our wait-person, was outstanding. Left Bank is fortunate to have her as an employee. We always are happy to be at Left Bank, but we weren't blown away? by their Brunch Menu. Just a few words about the host on Jan. 1. There was a line forming at the door and I asked the host about being seated. He replied that it was 2 minutes before 11:00 and LB doesn't open until 11:00!!!!!!!! What hospitality he showed!!!!!! His behavior was not acceptable. Thank you, Sally Porter

    Left Bank Menlo ParkResponded on January 3, 2023Hey Sally, Thank you for your review! I am so sorry we didn't seat you when asked, it was a mistake and I own it. Please let me know the next time you are thinking of joining us, so I may personally ensure you are seated on time with a great table. Best wishes, Toby Hughes Director of Operations LB Menlo Park.

    Excellent dinner at Left Bank. We started with escargot and a beet salad, both were delicious. My wife had seafood Bouillobase and I had the Beef Bourgoinone. Both were excellent. We finished with potrifoles that were very tasty. Very authentic French food in a great atmosphere. Parking was abundant in the back of the restaurant providing easy access. Highly recommend you try Left Bank if you are in Menlo Park area and craving authentic French Cuisine.

    As usual, our “linner” favorite place to dine. Bœuf bourguignon even better with the pasta! But I miss the French baguettes! The batard just ruins the taste of the escargots, and you have the best. Also miss the lamb. Great waiter and service!

    I used to love going to Left Bank. The last 2 times I have been, however, the service has been really lacking. Ate there yesterday with friends, and had a very friendly server, but he never came back once the food was delivered (by other people). Never checked on us. Had to ask Hostess for water refills, a bus boy for sugar after the waiter dropped off two cups of espresso and dashed off, and hostess again for the check. When he delivered the check, waiter was again SUPER friendly, which to me was either just his nature or a ploy for a larger tip than the service had merited. Last visit a few months ago was similar with a different server. I LOVED their holiday decorations, and am very fond of the menu. Fries are the best in the area in my opinion. And hostess was VERY helpful and friendly. But not sure I'll be going back soon after 2 bouts of horrible service.

    We were all very disappointed by our food. I am used to go to Left Bank at Santana Row and I love it. Menlo Park has the same menu but the quality and taste is not the same at all. Just the bread and butter was completely different and still frozen inside. Portions were smalls. Profiteroles had almost no chocolate sauce on them and the frozen chocolate cake from Trader Joe is so much better. We ordered entrees we already had at Santana Row . I will never come back Menlo Park. I am not recommending it.

    We had a 5:45PM reservation. It was 7:30PM we still have not been serve any food cause our server forgot about us and it was only two. The sad part it was my son's birthday... A a group about 15 people who arrived 7:00PM and they were served first. The general manager made it up for us cause she overheard when I ask the server the status of our food. From there are on, we had excellent service from the manager and older gentleman was serving wine. She was wearing purple.... she is the best!! We will return again.....

    Thanksgiving was very crowded. Left Bank in Menlo Park did a wonderful job of serving a fine dinner in a timely manner.

    It was Thanksgiving night and the restaurant was very busy. Although we waited awhile for our food, it was delicious and the wait staff did their best to keep our glasses filled. Overall, I would certainly recommend Left Bank for casual dining at a reasonable price.

    We came for Thanksgiving dinner, 4:15pm reservation. The food was delicious and the staff was all friendly. They were running very slow for the first hour - it took nearly 45 minutes for the first course soup to come out. But they picked up the pace later on and the food was worth the wait.

    Went for Thanksgiving. Took 3 hours total. The food was great and everyone was friendly. However it took 1 hr from the time we sat to place our order. Wait staff just seemed extremely overextended. In general, service is dead post Covid and this was the case at Left Bank. Since everyone is going digital with taking and sending orders, our waiter barely said hello and just held up his device indicating it was time to place orders. No eye contact, no “any menu questions?” (My MIL had some…she has celiac’s disease). My five year old was getting hangry and we asked for bread…which took 30+ min to arrive. I can appreciate that it was extra crazy with the holiday but we’ve had similar service here when it was not a holiday. A few of our parties’ meals arrived without some critical things as well (mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce). I mentioned it to our server and he brought them to us quickly (thank you!). At any rate, overall we enjoyed the experience but the service left a bit to be desired.

    Our Salles De Amis is a beautiful private mezzanine. You can choose to overlook the main dining room from the balcony, or enclose the room completely with our lush velvet curtains. The sunny yellow walls, warm mahogany accents and vividly colored French posters make this the perfect setting for your occasion. Set up however you wish, the room is large enough for a party of 60, yet intimate enough for a smaller group of 10 or 20. Have a much larger group? We are happy to close the entire restaurant.
