The food was so tasty and fresh. The staff were super friendly. The food was a little slow coming out but the staff were apologetic and attentive to the fact. I would love to eat here again. We ate Nicoisw Salad and the Seafood Broth. Both were hearty and delicious.

Two of our party arrived during happy hour and were able to take advantage of the drink deal of $5 glasses of wine or beer. I expected the wine to be subpar for only $5 but it was quite good. First pleasant surprise. Then we joined the other two in our party at a table for our dinner reservation. Our waiter arrived promptly after we were all together (the only negative of the evening, these friends would have liked to get a drink while they were waiting for us to pay our bar tab). The waiter was well versed in the food and specials. We each ordered different things and there all amazing! My hubby got the butternut squash soup and salad nicoise. The butternut squash soup had such a clear/clean butter nutty flavor it was truly delightful. The salad nicoise did not come with canned tuna but sushi grade tuna and blanched beans in a wonderful dressing. He was so pleased. I ordered the TTorro Au Chorizo - it is a spicier Ciopinno. It was fantastic. the scallpos, shripm, muscles, and fish all cooked to perfection in a tomato broth with a wonderfully spiciness from the chorizo. I would order it again in a heartbeat. it came with garlic toasts. Our friends order the sea bass special and the trout. The person who ordered the sea bass kept saying how awesome it was and that we had to try the veggies on the side. The brussle sprouts were really tasty. Everyone loved their food and an all around lovely evening was had. We will remember this on future trips to Santana Row.

We used to go to this restaurant very often, but the service has deteriorated so much. During our last lunch visit, it took over an hour to get our appetizer, and our food didn't arrive till about 45 minutes later. We ordered coffee with dessert, but it got so late that we had to cancel it. The manager came to apologize, but that didn't fix the problem. The last 3 times we visited, we noticed the poor service.

What I like about Left Bank is that it still feels like you can get real food there, i.e., the chicken comes with it's bones (same with some of the fish), i.e. they don't seem to be using "processed meats" to the same degree as I've seen elsewhere. Also, they have more vegetables on the menu than most places, which I'm happy about. Good wine too.

Left Bank is a favorite for a fine dining experience. Consistently good food! Nice ambiance and wonderful service. It's a great experience for anything from a family meal to a business dinner to impress.
