Loved the ambiance of this restaurant - candles and white table cloths, it was vibrant, service excellent and the food delicious - there was a group of us and we had medallions of pork, seafood linguine and ravioli - everyone enjoyed their tasty meal. The portions are large so bear this in mind when considering a starter.

Met my uncle from California there for dinner. He asked around and Left Bank was highly recommended. I had steak topped with lobster, I expected a few pieces, but it was a whole tail! Yum. Uncle had duck pasta-delicious! Also their home made Ceasar Salad and Seafood Soup were also fantastic-soup was loaded.

We love the cozy atmosphere on the restaurant side...exposed brick, nice tables, easy talking, terrific service and food! Ask for Sherry!!!! She's the best!!!! The bar is on the other side of a full wall, so there are 2 distinct areas thus helping the noise level. It gets packed. Do make reservations well in advance...the smaller # of tables go... More
