We stumbled upon this place in error. But we where glad we did. Amazing French food, great choice of wine and best of all amazing value. They have entrees for $14 if you can believe that. Service was excellent as was the ambience. Highly recommended.

this is one of the best restaurants in San Jose....wonderful atmosphere....very French, great service and always delicious food. The Nicoise salad is one of the best ever, and you can't beat their Croque Monsieur.....sitting on the lovely front patio makes for good people watching, too....

Quick early dinner with no pre planning. Great service. The fondue appetizer was perfect! I had pork tenderloin, my wife had the beet salad w/ horseradish which she said was both interesting and good.

Stopped in for dessert on the patio one evening in the spring. Awesome food and the people watching was as bonus. It was prom night at the hotel nearby. Fun to watch the kids taking selfies in the garden.

The service at Left banks is the worst. I have been there several times and the average waiting time to get your entree was at least 30 min.. The loup de Mer was some cheap other fish that was frozen...they should be sued for this......More
