Left Bank is an authentic Parisian-style brasserie known for simple, seasonally-changing French menus crafted by Chef Roland Passot. At Left Bank, you are sure to capture the true feeling of the Rive Gauche, or the “left bank” in Paris.

Open since 1994, Left Bank is located in the historic Blue Rock Inn in charming downtown Larkspur. Built in 1895 during the railroad era, The Blue Rock Inn was a popular weekend destination for San Franciscans to come dance and picnic under the stars.

Join us in our new parklet, on our patio, or in our beautiful dining room for one of your French to table favorites!

    I love this restaurant. It was a cold, blustery day outside. Inside was warm, friendly, and cozy with a warm fire going in the huge stone fireplace. French bistro food to warm the soul.

    Haven't been here for Sunday brunch before. It was pretty crowded, which is fine. The menu looked great. 2 of us had the duck confit hash and 2 had the salmon hash. 1 Duck confit hash was fine. The other had far less meat in it. Both salmon hashes had almost no salmon, they were just potato. We pointed it out to our waitress. She felt bad and brought a serving of duck for the person who didn't have enough. I'm sure she would have happily brought some salmon also. She also credited us one entree, which was nice. The kitchen needs to get their act together. I'm unlikely to go back for brunch and a $21 bowl of potatoes--I'll stick with the mussels and fries next time.

    We have gone to Left Bank for years. The quality of food dipped during Pandemic but has been wonderful the last three times we came for lunch. Host always finds us a hearing friendly table and service is usually quite good. Save room for desserts as they are outstanding.

    Whenever going for a pre fix Thanksgiving dinner, it’s always a toss up as how it’s gonna turn out and the value. However, the left bank did not disappoint. The meat was moist, great variety. Everything had a really high-quality feel and a really well thought out menu.

The meal was ABSOLUTELY delicious as well and we enjoyed sitting outside next to the very warm heat lamps for Covid saftey. 6 stars if we could. Thank you so much.

    Overall a very nice experience. Made reservations for our annual Thanksgiving dinner and were not disappointed. The food and service was very good but the noise level was a bit high for a special dining experience. I made reservations through Open Table approximately one month prior to our reservation and for the third time, the table I requested (for 2 persons) was already taken upon our arrival. Don't count on staff to make any effort to honor special requests.

    We went for the Thanksgiving dinner event, the food was good, not great. They ran out of Apple pie at 5pm, not good planning. Our main server was very attentive, the rest of the wait staff, not so much. Management t was running around looking busy, but seemingly unaware of guests needs.

    My family goes to Left Bank Larkspur for Thanksgiving each year. This year we were especially looking forward to it because of health issues within the family that have consumed much of the year. One of our party was a special needs adult, and I really want to compliment the maitre'd who asked -- upon our arrival -- if there were sound issues for that member of our party (did they become agitated by loud sounds) and if we should be seated in a quieter place within the restaurant. It was an unexpected inquiry that actually moved us greatly upon reflection. In more than 40 years, no one has ever asked us such a thoughtful question. The food was its usual spectacular, and the wait staff its usual classy and funny.

    Left Bank LarkspurResponded on November 27, 2022Thank you so much for your lovely review! We're so glad you were able to join us after a difficult year and enjoy yourselves.

    vegetables were not cooked enough both the yams (needed knife to cut) and the brussels sprouts almost raw . loads of turkey cooked nicely, cranberry sauce not great. the soup was excellent, salad fine. pumpkin pie fine but barely any whipped cream served with it , menu said apple pie but was more a gallate not a traditional pie- this was ok. stuffing good, mashed potatoes good. service was very good- did not rush you and attentive. portions were huge -plenty of leftovers to take home. nice that you could choose al a carte or full 4 course meal. sure regular meals are very good- turkey dinner was overall just ok

    Having visited many times over 20 years, this was the least good experience. The service was haphazard - four different people serving or taking away, so we were not sure who our waiter was. My husband's coq au vin was not good. It did not even resemble traditional coq au vin - pasta and chicken, n nothing else? and served in a bowl with no plate and no place to put the bones.The half carafe of Bordeaus was good but not worth 42$. Just sayin...

    The food was delish. Our server had to leave and the woman who took over was the best ever. So attentive and great attitude. Drinks made to perfection. Sat near fireplace so it was warmer than other spots in the past. The steak was just the perfect amount of done and the bleu cheese in the side great addition.
