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.

This is my favorite place to go out for dinner in Buffalo. Everytime I head back to the area I always try and enjoy a meal here. The menu does change, however its very innovative and fresh. Some people do complain its a bit pricey, but the exceptional quality makes up for that...This restauant is a can't miss!!!

My husband and I have eaten at Left bank and the food is fabulous - but if looking for simpler fare - hang out at the bar and order a drink and some appetizers! Fantastic!
