Description: Left Bank is an authentic Parisian-style brasserie located in San Jose's vibrant Santana Row, a place to see and be seen. Open since 2003, Left Bank transports guests to a quaint brasserie in Paris, where diners feast upon classic French cuisine in a charming brasserie setting along the boulevard, where people watching is at its best. Inside, the wonderful energy of an authentic French brasserie is in the air. The large, casual elegant main dining room offers everything from a family table of 20, to a quiet, romantic table for two. Our Happy Hour is the perfect time to join us for a bite and libation while on the patio or at the bar. The open exhibition kitchen provides onlookers a window into the magic our chefs create. Whether simply sipping a pastis or enjoying a full meal, diners capture the true feeling of the Rive Gauche in Paris.

A nice French restaurant with a great location at Santana Row. The French onion soup is delicious. It has the usual French bistro fare with Caesar salad, salmon, beef, and delicious desserts. Service is pleasing and friendly. It is a little pricey, but value for your money.

We popped in for a bite. Well trained staff let you know this is a great place to eat. Very cozy atmosphere. We were glad we had dressed nicely. I had an amazing burger and frites, as everything has a French flair here. My date had mussels and raved about them.

We have been frequenting Left Bank for numerous years, and it is consistently wonderful! We enjoy the French Brasserie decor and music, the atmosphere is always lively and upbeat. Meals are delicious, and the waitstaff is always friendly and attentive. We prefer to dine outdoors in front, along the street, when weather permits. From there, you can capture views of the small piazza and fountain, as well as bountiful, beautiful flowers. We discovered that there is a breeze at the tables along the side of the restaurant, which we find comfortable only in hot weather. The restaurant is quite noisy, so we do prefer outside seating when the weather accommodates. Complete your experience with a delicious seasonal fruit sorbet.

My husband and I went there with a friend and we all liked the food very much. Attentive service without being on top of you all the time, so they let you enjoy your meal and your conversation without many interruptions. After dinner you can walk Santana Row and it is beautiful.

This place is a hit and miss with service sometimes. A few times I've gone there, the service was veryslow.
This time it was perfect. My date and I enjoyed our time at the restaurant. Mind you, it was Fathers Day and the place was packed with people and families. We only waited 15 min and were sited outside where they allow dogs. I love animals and it was great to see well behaved dogs. If you have allergies, sit inside and enjoy an air conditioned room. The food was delish and our waitress was attentive and friendly. I should have remembered her name, to give her kudos. I'd recommend this place if you like good food and plenty of time to enjoy it.
