French food?

Last night, I went to Left Bank Brasserie in Menlo Park to try French Food, and I ordered the most expensive dish with Fish. I guessed the size of my fish was no more than 1/4 the actual size of the fish with a few pieces of vegetables. The skin of the fish had spices on it, but there was hardly any taste or flavor, and the meat texture was not soft like that of a fresh fish. My boy friend gave me some of his chicken... view more

Actually superior before renovation, but still good basics

having stopped here several times over the years for business, the experience has always been very positively consistent -- which counts for a lot when you are the out of town host out of your element.\r \r after the recent rennovation, there is an obvious emphasis on elbow-to-elbow crennulated seating of 2s (in contrast with the previous slightly wasteful diagonal seating) of 4s on a new golden/sparkly beautiful tin... view more

French enough

For an appetizer, we had the Assiette De Charcuterie, which had an assortment of meats, pickles and olives. I loved the pork rillette, my girl liked the duck one. The Proscutto was excellent, but there seemed to be a bit too much of it for an appetizer (I know, what a thing to complain about!).\r \r We skipped salad or soup (we're small people!) and went straight to the main courses. My girl ordered the skirt steak w... view more

Bad value, spotty service

It seems like the left bank used to be so much better... The last 3 times I've been in there, I've been seated at a table where the server didn't realize he/she was assigned to us. This, of course, resulted in us waiting without haveing our order taken. The last thing I want to do is flag down a waiter and ask them to figure out who is responsible for our table. I shouldn't have to do that in a restaurant that clains... view more

Love it for New Year's Eve

I don't know what those bad reviews are talking about- I adore Left Bank. I make it a tradition to go there every New Year's Eve before counting down to midnight, and always leave satisfied. I did have an adverse reaction to the gnocchi once- too much truffle oil- but otherwise I always have a great meal. It is a bit pricey but so worth it. I've never experienced bad service, but perhaps I've just been lucky. I would... view more

Not Worth It!

Our overall experience was very disappointing. The service is extremely slow and the waiters came to our table when they pleased. We had to ask for water and the dessert menu twice. I ordered an apple martini which is the worst I've ever had (my home-made ones taste better). For dinner I ordered a sole which was extremely oily and unappetizing. For dessert we ordered chocolate cake which was surprisingly pretty good.... view more

Its ok if you like bad service.

We had escargot and it was very chewy. We asked for bread but it never appeared. The mains were average at best.

Disappointment at Santana Row

Service needs a lot of work here. Expect to wait a long time for drinks to arrive and between courses. The food is good but my husband's steak was not. He asked for medium rare and it was cooked ""well"" until he reached the center. He could have had a much better steak at Sizzler. Foodwise, the steak was the only bad thing. I had a Croque Jaques Pepin which came without basil even though the menu stated basil but it... view more

Not worth it

I was expecting more when I went for lunch and then again for dinner (to give them another chance). Both times service was slow, food was cold, and not very good. I was very disappointed, especially for the price.

Not great

I'd been to their Marin location once before many years ago and really liked it. But here it was not good. The help was rude and not real bright - they don't like questions about organic vs. not, or questions about anything. There were 4 of us and none of us were very happy. We had dessert elsewhere.
