We had not revisited the Left Bank since its closing was announced by the original owners, Luc and Liz Meyer some years back. The remodeled and updated facility is beautifully done, and the food and service were outstanding. Classic lobster bisque, escargot, steak au poivre, and a perfectly dressed salad. The richness of the sauces still resonates the next day.... More

I have to start out by saying my wife and I are "Foodies", and we often prefer to cook at home rather than settle for the mediocre, over-priced fare available at most restaurants these days. Not so at The Left Bank! We dined on a Monday evening, and the atmosphere was comfortable, warm, and relaxed. The experience begins when Kimberly,... More

After decades of knowing about and going to the "old" Left Bank on the creek, this past Friday we had what was one of the most tasteful meals we have ever experienced. A wonderful interior that relaxes you after a great day of skiing. We were recommended the Sea Bass with Fennel and the Salmon bacon wrap that made you... More

The food was great, and the charm of this place is just wonderful and you can tell by all the locals that dine there that this review really will not make a difference for this restaurant, because they have a strong local (CO) following. I will say the food was delicious as was the wine, but the wait was absurd!... More

The food is average, and combined with expensive pricing results in a "poor" rating. We enjoyed the french onion soup (vegetarian) which was also prepared gluten-free. The gluten-free rolls were excellent. The regular bread was unimpressive. The portion size was small for the price, but appropriate for an appetizer (think cup instead of bowl). We also had the 2 salads... More

We were so badly received that we decided not even to enter the restaurant. Coat lady friendly and from there all goes wrong.

As mentioned in an earlier post, the service was a huge problem. We had a reservation, but the staff appeared very unorganized. The real problem came when it came to paying the check. Our party of 7 did ask to split the bill 3 ways, which I am sure is not ideal for any restaurant, but it did take over... More

Walked into the restaurant coat check was very friendly, waited at the host stand for at least five minutes before anyone even acknowledged us, several people walked past & didn't make eye contact. Once seated service was very slow, water order, then finally beverage order, then food order. The food came out in a timely manner and was fantastic, traditional... More

My first visit to the Left Bank was in 1992 and I have always enjoyed the experience. While it has been some time since I dined there, my family and I had dinner earlier this week. The food was every good and the service was excellent. We enjoyed appetizers, dinner and desert. The wine list was a little pricey and... More
