Had an OK experience at Left Bank Brasserie. Food was good but not great, and a little pricey too. I prefer the bistro next door (Bistro Vida).

Do not, under any circumstances, go to this restaurant. I like Left Bank, I've been to several. This particular Left Bank suffers from several things which would plague any restaurant: 1) possibly the worst service I've ever encountered at any restaurant. Our waiter was never there. It took about 40 minutes to get bread. I had to remind him about the drinks we ordered. When we had finally gotten our food, there was not a single check on us, my entire group had empty glasses the whole night. 2) they were out of the first two things I ordered on the menu. What I finally found I could order (a steak), I was disappointed in. Maybe it was the long anticipation for the food, but I expected something better than a barely seasoned, tough flank steak. The mushroom side was good, had I known, I might've just had that 3) more waiting as busmen cleared our table clean. Would we get a dessert menu? A check? It took another 30 minutes to find out. The restaurant was empty at this point: just my friends, me, and an empty table. We declined the dessert menu and paid cash so as to limit any further time spent there... 2 hours gone - for a sub-par steak and a single glass of wine.

Nice spot on the main strip of Menlo Park. Food was good but not great, pleasant atmosphere and good service.

I don't think it's fair to describe Left Bank's food as "Gallic fare." I'd consider it more of a French take on a contemporary menu. For example, they offer an absolutely delicious gazpacho with watermelon appetizer. That said, the Left Bank is simply wonderful. The food is delicious and pleasing to the eye. The facility itself is large, beautiful, brightly-lit, and has a small function room for private parties. Service is well dressed, well spoken, and prompt. Dinner here is certainly worth your time.
