Is this grammatically correct? I don’t want to risk having you left a negative review about me?
Please help me rewrite it if it’s incorrect. Thanks.

Yes, but you might consider: I don't want to give you a negative impression of me.

No. I don’t want to risk you leaving a negative review of me.

"I don't want a negative review." Or "I don't want you to leave a negative review."

I don't want to risk the idea that you might write a negative review about me.
I assume that the notion of "leaving" (and thus your notion of "left") is used in modern times for messages posted on internet forums. To me at the age of 72 that idea seems silly.
In strict grammatical terms it presumably should be: ".....having you leave a negative report....".

"Left" should be "leave."

I know what it means but the sentence structure is just painful!
I don't want to risk you leaving a negative review about me.
I don't want to risk a negative review from you
Or you could just say you don't want to risk a negative review, and they'll figure out who it is you don't want it from.
