Left Bank went above and beyond to make us all feel welcome, comfortable and special.
This to me is first class service and I wouldn't hesitate to return. The Osso Bucco is Devine!

What a wonderful experience we had for our very first time with First Table.
The staff is very lovely, helpful and made us feel welcome from the start. Menu is quite diverse so anyone can find something they can enjoy.
We had snails, scallops, duck... everything tasted like heaven!
We also had some French red wines which tasted amazing. Overall great experience and I would recommend this restaurant to absolutely anyone who loves good wine and good food!

A good experience. It is a cosy but comfortable place for a fine dinner or a drink in Sofitel. Service is really good and professional. Food is beyond our expectations. Do try the lamb kidney, which is very tasty. Will recommend to anyone who is looking for a quiet but tasteful place.

This is the second time we have dined at The Left Bank, it is a wonderful little restaurant, with great food and wonderful staff!!
We started with Onion soup which was hearty and delicious, then we both had Ribeye, which were cooked to perfection

We loved the ambience and the food was excellent. The service was a standout especially as the staff forgot to give us our 50% discount and later called us to rearrange a refund to our cards. We can highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

Beautifully presented entree mains and desserts. The chateau Briand for two was rare and tender and was very generous .
The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed chatting with them, Pauline who was from Normandy, France, was charming.
The restaurant suited the cooler evening as there is no outside dining that we could see. Most enjoyable..

We had a wonderful night at Left Bank Bistro thanks to First Table. It was a “last family meal” before our two kids went to Uni and it was pretty special. We had the escargot and scallops to share as an entree and my husband and I had the Chateaubrand beef which was amazing. Our big kids had the duck and the steak which were both delicious.
The complimentary breads and dips were very much appreciated. The service was awesome. Very friendly and attentive. I feel like I need to tell the world how good this place is.

The leftbank bistro is - in my opinion - one of the best restaurants in Queenstown. The food is absolutely delicious. The complimentary breads to start are freshly baked and are accompanied by a trio of freshly made oils and cheeses. Our group had the steak, venison, duck leg and blue cod for mains with some beautiful side dishes which were all cooked perfectly. The staff are a credit to this restaurant providing top notch service whilst adding that personal touch to the dining experience. I can’t recommend this place enough, you won’t be disappointed!

I chose this restaurant as a place to meet with my friends again.
I liked the quiet atmosphere very much.
Our main, Mushroom risotto, chicken and salmon were all delicious.
We ordered Caesar salad. I added smoked salmon, but I could not find any smoked salmon. It was with sardines.

Warmly welcomed and given a choice of tables which was nice. Water and wine came swiftly on ordering and the food orders taken following.
We all ordered an entrée & main and threw a fifth entrée in as we wanted to try escargot. The meals are ALL quite generous so if we went again would probably order an entrée to share rather than one each to ensure we made room for dessert (more on that later). The scallops were delicious, pumpkin ravioli good (the pasta is a little thicker than some but it was a very tasty dish). Those that had the duck declared it delicious, the venison very tasty & the jus exceptional. The risotto dish is HUGE - way more than our party could eat its rich with delicious cheese incorporated - hate wasting food but simply couldn't make it past half. Perhaps chef might look at serving size as we saw other tables also return large portions of same dish unfinished.
Dessert options include crepe suzette with the liqueur flamed at the table which was gorgeous. Stunning dessert (one of our party may have come close to licking their plate clean).
Wait staff are fabulous, good humour, happily answered questions re menu with ease and great wine recommendations when our original choice wasn't available.

Authentic French bistro menu (onion soup, pate de campagne, creme brulee, crepe suzette - I had five courses) and decor.
Friendly helpful staff, but let down by "back-office" (Sofitel) stock control on the wine list.

Lovely decor. Beautiful food and attentive staff. I had grilled market fish (John Dory) with steamed vegies (asparagus, carrots and chooped tomato, onion and peppers). It was light and tasty. My husband had a beautiful rich creamy vegetable lasagne. Highly recomebd left bank bistro.
