Good menu selection, good food, well priced, good atmosphere and friendly staff. Ideal for a pre-theatre meal at Yorkshire Playhouse.

wow, the atmosphere is so relaxed due to great lighting and a club type layout. Although the tables are pretty close together, it creates a homely feel. The food is very good and the service is discreet and attentive. I found the prices a little steep for my pocket but the whole experience was worth it.

I deliberately went to this bistro based on the reviews on TA and I was NOT disappointed. What a fab little spot!! Great welcome upon reception and it threw me a little when the lady asked very promptly if we were celebrating anything that my mind went blank.....we were actually celebrating our 10 year anniversary(!) but when I remembered we...

On a Friday night after a long week of work my partner and I were really looking forward to a nice relaxing meal. Having received a phone call the day before our booking, I was made aware that our 5.30pm table was followed by another booking at 7.15pm. This was absolutely fine and quite useful to know. As we walked... More

Had one of the best meals ever last night at Kendells. Our son lives in Leeds and we arranged to dine out with him - he had heard about Kendells and as we are all 'foodies' booked a table. We were greeted with a real warm welcome. The place was buzzing and we had a lovely table in the thick... More

Kendells is my favourite restaurant in Leeds - the waiting staff are extremely attentive and the food is always great. This visit was for my birthday. The staff knew that and so bent over backwards to make the night great! We were given a free glass of champagne on arrival and a free dessert to finish. We had the set... More
