If you haven't visited Santana Row in San Jose, you must! It is festive and fun. There are quite a few good eateries. I particularly love Left Bank for its ambiance and location. Eat in the bar or at the tables outside on the street. Good wine, appetizers (fondue!), and steak & pommes frits! People watching and good, basic food... More

The Left Bank located in Santana Row, San Jose, California is over-rated and over-priced. The menu is supposed to be French, but the food is just average. The duck I ordered came out not just pink, but actually raw. In addition, the wild rice that came with it had a burned taste. My wife had the Steak Frits which was... More

One of my favorite and highly recommend to my friend to visit this restaurant.... Serve with good variety of beer and wine. Serve good steak and salad too... The atmosphere is great with good crowd in the evening. Good for business dinner and lunch.....

I love this place. I like to get the appetizers: Mussels, chicken pate, smoked salmon taste. I get a combination of 2 of these with some wine and it is so good. Not your ordinary food and so good!

I often have business lunches and dinners at this Left Bank. In nice weather, the restaurant opens up to the the outside to create the feel of a bistro that is really fun. The bar is great. The food is good. Very nice steaks, and the seafood is quite good as well. I have not had the hamburger but it... More

Visited for Valentine Day for lunch.... Not a first visit, but this place is getting progressively worse. Lunch menu was lacking taste. The service is depend on individual server, and we've got an inattentive one. We observed our bubbly flights order was poured by bartender right away but took our waitress ~15 min to bring it to the table. All... More

Food was quite good, no complains, but our waitress was not very good, she look stressed, not interested and when she ask something it felt that she don't care so much. Mussels was good, steak was good, but salad very boring.

We love this place! We are never disappointed. Sometimes there is a wait to get a table, but we felt it was worth it.

Came for Valentine's Day, but really don't see myself coming back. The staff and management were all very nice and very service oriented. However, the food was pricey and just okay. The calamari was just eh...pretty typical of what I might expect at a lower grade restaurant. The salad was underdressed and way overpriced for what I received. The lamb... More
