I've visited Left Bank a number of times. Once for brunch and a few times for dinner. I wasn't crazy about the brunch. Typical options, but not a very wide variety. Dinners have always been very good. Definitely a nice atmosphere for an adult night out.

We thought the menu offered some very innovative foods. We also thought the prices were very good. Portion size was really too much, but the favors were good.

There are some very good restaurants in Buffalo, Left Bank represens consistent good food, service and experience. This is my family's go to for birthdays, graduations and so on. We particularly like the grilled bruschetta for an appetizer and their ravioli of the day. We also appreciate consistet menu refreshes.

Was here for a group dinner in June 2015. Reasonable wait for a table. Appetizers delicious, food was very good. Very, very pricey. Atmosphere was OK, felt very crowded into the restaurant - which was very busy. Bathrooms are very small and not well cleaned (disgusting), and were the only reason I cannot give four stars. I would recommend this... More

Great location...hidden away in a true neighborhood. Ambience is urban and trendy. Food was good, especially the spinach! Service was excellent. Have been there twice and both times were good!

It took awhile to get in here… I could NEVER get reservations! If you want to eat here, call ahead of time (like at least one week) or go at a less popular time (like Tuesday at 5:30pm). My boyfriend and I had a really tasty and romantic dinner here. Get the NY Strip Steak with lobster on top!
