There were 18 of us who went to the Left Bank on Friday 12th December. Previous experience of these kind of nights is usually poor value for money but not at Left Bank. Unusual menu but still offering traditional dishes. Lovely food. Great atmosphere. Efficient and friendly staff. Great cocktails. Have recommended to so many people and will definitely go... More

A gang of us were here for dinner last week and all really enjoyed it. I've been here a lot for food over the years and have to say I've never had a bad experience. We had booked the Christmas menu which was really good. I had the mackerel to start which was delicious and was accompanied by a spicy... More

Service was a bit poor, the waitress was quite unfriendly but thankfully the food made up for it. Had a burger which was very tasty. I would definitely recommend the food.

Popped in for a quick lunch with friends. Fast service and lovely staff. Lots of choice on lunch menu at £5.95. Opted for meatball ciabatta. Relaxing atmosphere. Will be back.

We visited on a Saturday night (without a reservation) on one of the busiest weekends of the year. The November pay was in the bank and Glasgow was party central. The manager rearranged the tables to allow our party of 2 to get a seat. The staff were first class and very customer focused. The food was excellent. The Goan... More

I've been going to the Left Bank for years now and I have to say that it's probably my favourite restaurant in Glasgow. The food is consistently fabulous and imaginative. I love the chicken satay, the fish curry, the sticky ribs and the chips (I've tried them all many times). The wine is well selected and there's usually an interesting... More

Went with friends on their recommendation. Waiter immediately responded to our request for a different table owing to difficulty with stairs. The service was reasonably fast and when the chef burnt one of our lamb dishes ( the last one he had!) we were immediately offered choice of alternatives free of charge. The starters were delicious and the mains also... More

Hi Peregrinefife, Thanks for your review, your feedback means a lot to us. Again, apologies about the lamb special, just our luck that it was the last one that got burnt! I love the wee crispy bits of crackling too. Hopefully see you back soon. More

Visted here a few weeks ago and as on previous visits the food was pretty tasty and good value for money. The service from the mumbling miserable waiter hiwever was shocking, if he doesn't want to be there he really shouldn't be because the miserable abrupt service he was giving really won't do the business any favours. Overall the place... More

Sorry to hear about your experience with one of our waiters. We have had issues with a particular waiter recently and would like you to know that he is no longer part of our team. Glad that you enjoyed you food and we hope that the unacceptable service you received on this occasion won't put you off coming back. More

I went to this restaurant as a birthday treat, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent, although a little slow. However, this was probably due to a full table of guffawing middle-aged women taking up the upstairs area. The waitress was very smiley and chatty. She recommended dishes that would suit my dining partner, who is a dairy-free pescatarian.... More
