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.

Sino, the second endeavor of culinary artist Chris Yeo, was envisioned to entice the palette with the tradition of Dim Sum and the wonders of modern Chinese cuisine. Grand in scale, Sino offers an intimacy and sensuality that is unparalleled- from the warmth of the dining room adorned with billowing crimson curtains and layers of gossamer, to the plush and luxurious appointments of the lounge where comfort and beauty beckon you to stay a while.

"We waited around 40 mins for main course to arrive whereas people who came a lot later than us got their appetizers before us. May not come again due to the long wait despite good food."
