Went this morning for breakfast with partner and daughter. Despite having obvious mobility issues (I walk with the aid of a walking stick) we were shown to a table up a flight of stairs on a mezzanine level. At no point was I asked if this was suitable. Our orders were taken Eggs Benedict with bacon, Ciabatta with poached eggs... More

Recently enjoyed a lovely birthday meal at The Left Bank. I'd had their breakfast before so suggested it as I knew the food was of a high standard. The Mediterranean-y menu suits the heat of the summer perfectly and there are plenty of veggie delights (and the opportunity for vegan and coeliac options too). On this evening visit the food...

I liked the choice here because it offered a slightly different slant on the dishes. We pre booked and got here easily without a car by subway from central city and a short walk down the riverside pathway. Very helpful staff and excellent food. Love to go back again.

Excellent food, local products, good range of beers ( wine not too bad either) and very friendly staff. I would say avergae prices for what it offers and best of all extremely dog friendly!

Came here after a walk in kelvin grove park on a sunny day for a few pints and a bite to eat. Pints went down an absolute treat in the hot weather. Food was very nice and would definitely go back.

Firstly on entering lovely service, drink order taken and all served quickly and efficiently. We then decided to eat and all I can say the starters of ribs, chicken satay and prawns were all superb we even ordered another portion of ribs. Main courses were also nice although my burger was over cooked but not to the point I could... More

Whereas genuine cuisine fusions can be fascinating (Indo-French at London's Cinnamon Club comes immediately to mind), different cuisines that simply rub shoulders on an eclectic menu frequently offer the most superficial fare but not so at the Scottish/eclectic Left Bank where the menu offers a variety of cuisines with panache. We could have chosen Mexican, Spanish or Indian favourites but... More

Had another lovely breakfast here. I have had 3-4 breakfasts over the last 3 years and the standard has never deteriorated. Very mellow and welcoming, I always enjoy it. Very good staff who are very accommodating. The wheelchair toilet is very good, clean and spacious. Will definitely be returning.

In general the food here was good and all three of us would definitely go back. All starters were good although the ribs and chicken skewers were only lukewarm. The three main courses were delicious, I had the chilli and loved it. The only downside was the wine list which we all felt was far too expensive for this style... More

I was taken here by colleagues for a birthday meal, which was ruined by the fact I was vomiting within half an hour of eating. I emailed the restaurant and received a dismissive response, claiming that it could not possibly have been their food, despite me having felt perfectly fine before eating. I decided not to pursue the complaint at... More
