My husband and I celebrated our anniversary last June by seeing a show and having a fan parasitic meal at Left Bank in Buffalo. If you have the chance, do eat here. It is a relaxed atmosphere, efficient and friendly wait-staff and the best food around. The pork tenderloin is scrumptious! Save room for their desserts, which might be difficult... More

We have been there twice and loved it. Only problem, it is so popular that we had to wait about 6 weeks for a weekend reservation. Wonderful atmosphere. Old building in the City with brick walls and nice atmosphere. A bit noisey because of the ceilings. Enjoyed the salad with beets, fried cheese wonton, macadamia nuts, and mesculun greens. Two...

The first time I went to the Left Bank was with family members. I have lived in Buffalo all my life and never heard of it until my wife and I were invited there for dinner by some family members. What I thought was really cool about the place was the old time brick building that it was in it... More

We came early on a Sunday evening to celebrate my mother's birthday. All the staff from the hostess to the waitress and bus people were friendly and attentive. Ah and the FOOD! I had Hawaiian Grey Snapper, which I never heard of before, and it was cooked to perfection. The salad was baby mesculun greens with just enough dressing to... More

Cons: -Very limited wine by the glass list -Small regular menu with basic options only, nothing particularly exciting or inventive -My meal was bland and lacked the flavor profile and punch I was expecting based on the description of the...

Food: ravioli (one big fat ugly looking thing similar to a burrito) was flavorful, however nothing unique with flavor. Twin tenderloins: ordered medium, arrived medium-well. Very tender and flavorful, however the cheese topping was cool and bacon is good, but nothing that said wow. Calamari, breads and salads (house and Caesar) were again flavorful however standard for any restaurant. Desserts... More
