Left Bank is an authentic Parisian-style brasserie located in San Jose's vibrant Santana Row. 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. Boasting Santana Row's largest bar, Left Bank is a place to see and be seen. <br /><br />The large, casual elegant main dining room offers everything from a family table of 20, to a quiet, romantic table for two. 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.

"The children's menu suited my 3 year old and 19 month old grandson's perfectly. We were able to celebrate a family birthday meal with everyone enjoying their food. The children were fed quickly which made things easier on the rest of us. The lamb was excellent and the mussel appetizer was ideally seasoned. A very nice place to celebrate family events."

"The food at the bakery is very good but unless you have plenty of time and don't mind waiting for your order until you've almost lost your appetite, this isn't the place to go. The servers are not only slow, they are inattentive, water glasses go unfilled, bread baskets are empty and nothing is replenished without a request,"

Le Central is a neighborhood bistro located in San Francisco's bustling Financial District. A favorite of locals and visitors since it opened over three decades ago in 1974, Le Central's iconic red tabac sign has become a familiar fixture of Bush Street. Housed in a brick building, the restaurant's warm interior offers guests an authentic brasserie atmosphere. Handwritten chalk Plat du Jour menus, cozy booth seating and fresh flowers greet customers on every visit. Le Central serves traditional French cuisine such as Steak Frites, Onion Soup Gratinée, Rack of Lamb Persillé and our cassoulet which has been cooking for over 12,000 days. Le Central is owned by brothers Johnny and Paul Tanphanich who bring over four decades of French cooking to the restaurant.

"The food was excellent. The specials were very interesting. The white burgundy was excellent and served as a perfect foil for the softshell crabs."

"We had a fantastic meal, from the artichoke appetizer special to the lamb grilled to a perfect pink and finished with a light cheese came. The ingredients were local and fresh. The Sangria with peachy berries was a real treat. This restaurant is a definite keeper."
