Classic french bistro in style, substance and food. Menu extensive and very varied, all French classics. Good wine selection. All the food was excellent. Very slight down points - service a little too brisk, felt like they wanted the table back asap and no offer of coffees. Yet the large (and very noisy) table who had arrived before us only... More

Visited on Saturday evening for my boyfriends birthday. First impressions, pretty good, lovely warm welcome on arrival and we were seated quickly. A waiter quickly appeared to offer to take a photo of the menu board for us, which is a nice touch and also took a drink order. And my boyfriend got champagne as it was his birthday. Another...

Very good range of genuine french dishes which were cooked very well and authentically. Staff were excellent - attentive, but not intrusive. Good wine selection and the atmosphere is very good but maybe a little overcorwded. You need to book well in advance but its worth it

A very nice experience, the atmosphere was excellent and the food and service was very good, attentive but not overpowering. We really enjoyed it. And for special occasions a free glass of bubbly and petit fours. Highly recommended, we will certainly be paying them another visit.

Just on the out skirts of the city centre I stumbled upon kendells bistro. Living in leeds id never heard of this place before so thought i would give it a try. From the out side it looks nothing special, Infact it looks rather plain, however all that changes in an instance when you walk in. A warm welcome is... More

Booked it fairly in advance as most reviews said it was a good idea but had no trouble at all. Food was really great, all 3 courses! Great decor inside too, and staff always there without crowding you. Recommended!
