Left Bank at Santana Row always has great food with a French flare. Love the salads for lunch. If you can snatch a sidewalk view table on a sunny afternoon, you are in luck. People watching at its best. Then stroll around the Row after lunch.

Food is usually very good along with the service - I have never had a bad meal here. However, being it is Santana Row and "the place to be seen" - expect to pay premium $$ - even for a burger or sandwich. If it is a nice day - great place to eat and people watch too!@

While the food is basic French, this is a good place to bring a woman on a romantic date in a less than romantic town. I also like they cocktails.

Left Bank exudes a cool hip environment, in an "in" location, located at Santana Row. The decor is French-like, dark wood furnishing, warm lighting, European decor. However, service was definitely unauthentic stereotypical French,but in a good way! Friendly and efficient service, our server had good suggestions and was very efficient but unobtrusive in removing used plates, etc. The wine offerings... More

Nice restaurant in nice shopping area with free parking garage next to restaurant! Food was good and prices were as expected in the area. Lamb shank, cooked 24 hours, is recommended. The special of the day was day-boat scallops. The scallops were amazing, but the quantity and size of the scallops was small. It came with risotto which was very... More

Great restaurant! Very cool environment, great service and very tasty food. Prices are very reasonable. Very good kids menu (the options, the price and the food). Kitchen view gives it a nice atmosphere.

I love Left Bank for their Steak Tartare and their Steak Frite. I order steak tartare on a regular basis and it really is better than in Paris! They also have the best fries- the truffle fries are to die for! It is always comfortable here- Quiet enough to have a conversation with your dining partners, it is a go... More
