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

We came here for a business dinner mid week. Friendly, professional staff with great food. Our group ordered different appetizers and entree's, all of them were excellent. Not hard to see why they are highly ranked!

Because it deserves to be. We go there one a month - standing reservations (which for weekends - you need to make month in advance). All on staff very friendly - excellent service. Any item on menu is a good bet - while daily specials are usually home runs! Dining area tends to be pretty loud (bad acoustics) but probably... More

My husband and I had a 5:45pm reservation on a Tuesday and were able to get a parking place next to the restaurant. We called earlier that afternoon and we're lucky to get a reservation. The ambiance inside the restaurant is nice (lit candles at the table) and we got water very quickly (with a small pitcher that stayed on... More

We were too full from our lunch at the Anchor Bar to have a main course here, but the appetizers and dessert were great. The serve a terrific artichoke salad. The artichokes were egg-dipped and fried, and served between layers of marinated tomatoes. Scallops were grilled to perfection. We had a chocolate, peanut butter and caramel pie for dessert (we...

Left Bank is one of the best restaurants in buffalo. This is in regards to food quality, service and overall value. Very European bistro type of feel. Awesome bar. Great specials every day and very nice patio on which to enjoy a nice evening. Very nice brunch on Sundays. You won't be disappointed. Reservations on weekends require at least a... More
