I've been here twice and both times the food has been absolutely superb. We tried the carrot papperdelle this time, which was one of the best dishes I've had in a restaurant, and I don't normally like pasta dishes. My boyfriend and I also had the 'fondue for two'. The beef tenderloin tips that came with the fondue were so... More

I have been here twice, reservations are hard but this is truly a five star restaurant . The service is excellent, the food is of taste and perfection and located in a lovely eclectic Buffalo neighbourhood. The entries and the deserts were near perfect and cannot disappoint. We sat outdoors which felt apropos considering the name and the atmosphere being... More

Our second visit to the Left Bank and very enjoyable again. A bit off the beaten track, but most cabs and hotel shuttles should be able to get you there. You will be glad you went!

We are very picky about restaurants that rank in our top ten...but one taste of the marinara on the ravioli and The Left Bank became a clear top-five finisher! The staff attempted to clear away the plate once the ravioli disappeared, but we threatened them with silverware to stay away until we had sopped up all remaining marinara with pieces... More

The food and atmosphere at Left Bank are wonderful. The meals are all presented beautifully and taste even better! Highly recommend the Panko Chicken dish-my friend got it and I was jealous -my halibut was wonderful but the chicken was to die for! Make reservations far in advance-its an intimate place and i don't think you can walk in and... More

We went for dinner 6 of us, my daughter found a big black hair entangled in her pasta dish. It was really uncomfortable as we were with her boyfriends parents we met for the first time so we really didn't want to make a big deal about it but..... It took a long time for us to get the waitress... More
