Showed up without a reservation but was still able to get a table for my party of 3 on the patio. We were dressed casually and did not feel out of place. Service was excellent and food was too. I had linguine with chicken (one of the less expensive entrees) and it did not disappoint.

By far one of our favorites. Outstanding appetizers you can share and incredible entrees. Make a reservation and you will not be disappointed.

The world is vast, filled with many options and how lucky am I to be able to say my favorite restaurant is not far from home. The atmosphere lends itself to either romantic, friends or family. The service is very good, but the food is lovely. The Carrot Papardella-tossed with lobster, shrimp and crabmeat is everyone's favorite. The apps are... More

This is a nice restaurant for this part of town. The appetizers are always great, however the entrees aren't incredible. I'd suggest getting a couple appetizers as a meal. Still overall a great place.

I was dying to go to Left Bank as it is always rated #1 or #2 on TA for Buffalo restaurants. We went on a Sunday evening and were not disappointed. The restaurant was much larger and more open (high ceilings, big windows) than I would have expected. Tables are not crammed super close together so that you don't feel... More

As a birthday celebration for myself, my family (our daughter was in from out of town), we decided to visit one of our favorite restaurants. The service was very good but not one of our meals was tasty. Very disappointing.

We had a reservation for five people for brunch. We walked in and our guests were horrified at the noise level. The hostess did agree to move us to the patio. It only took 5 minutes for us to be seated. We placed our orders within five minutes or so of sitting down. The waitress seemed annoyed that we all... More

My husband and I ate here July 3, 2014 for dinner. We got there when they opened so we did not make a reservation. It is a small place and they were quickly filling up. Very nice inside. The tables had a table cloth, a small vase w/ a flower, a carafe of water and a candle which was lit.... More
