Left Bank Restaurant Review

: Roland Passot's Left Bank delivers satisfying rustic French cuisine in an elegant setting. It's also noisy thanks to the high ceilings. But it's easy to ignore the noise in favor of the comfortable dining room, roaring fireplace, sidewalk café tables and appealing French bistro-style menu. You'll find traditional Parisian dishes such as mussels steamed in wine (great with crispy shoestring potatoes), rotisserie chicken, bouillabaisse, salmon-and-scallop quenelles, grilled salmon and a lovely crisp duck from the spit with oranges and rice. We suggest the smoked salmon puff-pastry-crusted pizza appetizer with crème fraîche and red onion. The wine list offers a wide array of French and California choices and is priced to complement the menu. Service is crisp and professional without being snooty.
