“Good Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2008

I stopped here on a Saturday afternoon - they were open for Brunch.

My friend and I shared the Eggs Benedict and the Blueberry pancakes. Both were very good. Coffee was excellent.

The music was lowkey and pleasant. Good service. Pleasant atmosphere. Newspapers and magazines available to browse. A nice way to spend a part of the afternoon.

Location is in the heart of Adams Morgan with many shops for browsing.

“Avoid Left Bank!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2007

If Left Bank was situated anywhere else but in Adams Morgan I would have given it an overall OK rating. Food is not too bad but if you want good food go elsewhere. Music is decent but there are 10 better places within 1 block. Crowd is mixed, typical. The athmosphere is boring and there is a sense of emptiness! Left Bank is attempting to be quite a few different things at the same time- breakfast place, lunch and fine dinner restaurant, bar, and a club. Too much....

Ultimately Left Bank fails miserably by making customers ask themselves what is the real purpose of this place? There is no vibe, no atmosphere... seems like just a place that tries to serve too many roles not doing any of them well enough.

It was not surprising that last time I went on a Saturday night the place was only 30%-40% full while walking on the street clearly other bars were all crowded. The funny part was that management decided to restrict access to most of the open spaces to artificially make it appear packed- good try but it made it look even more ridiculous...

Bottom line - don't get tricked by the cool name and reference to France... the place is at most marginal and given the active area there are much better alternatives.
