Left Bank is a tried and true favorite for dinner, especially when entertaining out of town guests. The service is great, and the food never disappoints. The dining room is comfortable and welcoming, with a full bar.

Left Bank has been one of only a few main restaurants in the small town of Larkspur for years, and I've been a customer since the very beginning. Over that time the dining experience has ranged from outstanding to unfocused, and I drifted away. Now,...More

Description
Left Bank is an authentic Parisian-style brasserie located in the historic Blue Rock Inn in charming downtown Larkspur. Built in 1895 during the railroad era, The Blue Rock Inn was a popular weekend destination for San Franciscans to come dance and picnic under the stars. Open since 1994, Left Bank continues to be a destination for folks from all over the Bay Area to enjoy a casual snack on the sunny terrace, a glass of wine or hand crafted cocktail at the lively bar, or an elegant dining experience near the fireplace. At Left Bank, you are sure to capture the true feeling of the Rive Gauche in Paris. Nineteen years of working with local organic farms allows us to bring you the best seasonal ingredients available. Chef de Cuisine Fabrice Marcon offers an often changing, French brasserie menu of hearty, rustic, and authentic dishes featuring a diverse selection of natural meats, sustainable seafood, fresh local vegetables, salads and sumptuous desserts.
