Took the parents there for a special occasion. The food and service were good. I personally have a hard time getting over the price, but that is why I rarely go here for a full meal. My wife and I wander in at times to sit at the bar and have some good drinks and small plates. Even then, expect... More

I can always count on the Left Bank to have some of the best food in York. I love sitting at the bar and they do have a few great wines to offer. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Based on the many positive comments on Trip Advisor, we were ready for a very good experience at the Left Bank. Our waiter convinced us to try the special, Bronzino, which is a "Mediterranean Sea Bass." Frankly, we both were disappointed with this. In our ignorance, we expected it to be like Chilean Sea Bass, very flavorable. However, the dish... More

I've heard very good things about the Left Bank including that it is expensive. Both observations are correct. We don't usually splurge in this price range, but there is a time & place for everything. The downtown location is fun, décor is nice, parking can be interesting (no surprise there). Our party of four went for lunch without a reservation.... More

Our son made reservations on the road on a Friday evening. He based his choice on reviews. We drove from Gettysburg and he met us from the north. This was our first time at this restaurant. The prices nearly had us turn around and try somewhere else but we took the plunge. Our taste buds were very happy we did.... More

Surprisingly needed reservation on a Monday evening. The meal was delicious and the staff was helpful in helping us decide between choices. The pork tenderloin was so large, it was a take home addition.

I've heard many good things about this restaurant before, but even so, the actual experience exceeded my expectations of a restaurant in Central PA. The food was exquisite! My husband had a teriaky tuna appetizer, which was great; I had a tomatoe bisque with crab, and it was the best tomatoe bisque I had in my life. Our fish entries... More

Left Bank is consistently good. The menu varies slightly depending on the season. If you want a 'nicer restaurant' in downtown York - this is one to choose. Great stop for lunch, but more expensive than the other restaurants around.

We went here for our anniversary dinner and had a superb meal. The baby spinach salad was perfect - best tasting strawberries I've had all season and love the dressing with a strawberry white balsamic dressing. Copperhead salmon was divine and I totally appreciated the chef's willingness to substitute a different side. My husband, who is from Maryland, is very... More
