Good atmosphere for business dinner. Very tasty appetizers...ahi tuna tartar and seared scallops. My steak penne pasta was adequately spicy, steak was medium rare, but the entire dish was a tad too salty. I have heavy taste buds and so if I'm complaining that it's salty, then it is definitely salty to an average person. Service was top notch as... More

This is by far one of the very best restaurants in the Buffalo area. It is so incredibly excellent from the food to the service to the atmosphere. Outstanding. The appetizers are amazing and the entrees fantastic. The service is about as good as you can get. The server Kate has waited on us for at least 10 years or... More

Unfortunately, the menu was the same and we remembered. The service was exceptional and we like the atmosphere of the restaurant. Because of... More

We recently ate at Left Bank, and had a marvelous meal all around. If you make a reservation, you are automatically put inside, though there is a patio. If, when you get there, there is room in the patio, and the weather is good, you can change.... Specials were delicious, and included a large ravioli (even our bottomless daughter's boyfriend...
