This was my second trip here (the last time I went for dinner and enjoyed some soup and nibbles). Very tasty brunch and the service was good but did not particularly stand out. I would go back.

Pleasant staff, comfortable, relaxed environment and overall good service! Was in for coffees with a friend and allocated a lovely corner sofa area. Ended up staying for hours we were so comfortable! Will definitely be back.

Had breakfast here today. Scrambled egg, bacon and toast. The scrambled egg was overcooked and a bit cold as was the bacon. The two pieces of toast were a bit underdone and a bit cold, and I had to ask for butter. All in all not good. The restaurant itself is very nice but the food is very variable, and... More

hello, Apologies for your experience at The Left Bank. Our brunches are very popular and recently received a glowing review from Joanna Btythman in the Sunday Herald. Obviously our food wasn't up to standard for your visit. If you had let us know when we checked back with you then we would have happily replaced it for you. More

good value for money and a unique menu that is refreshing to chose something from. It has a charming atmosphere too and will definitely be back to try the dinner menu.

There are lots of options for a tasty veggie brunch in Glasgow but on this day a bowl of soup and a sandwich or a veggie breakfast didn't appeal. Neither did any of the myriad of ethnic eating options including curry or falafel or noodles. I fancied a good old fashioned piece'n veggie sausage. Café Rio (which does a decent... More

Firstly, let me apologise for your experience at The Left Bank. Our veggie sausage mix has been one of our most popular brunch dishes since we opened in 2006 , we sell a large amount of them and haven't had any issues until now. Our mix is made with veggie haggis (carrots, mushroom, pulses, oats and onions) and sweet potato,... More

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
