Had dinner in kendells for my birthday last night. I love this restaurant. The dim candle lit room, the welcoming staff and the bistro furniture make for a warm and romantic atmosphere. A refreshing change from the modernistic restaurants that are mostly available in Leeds. The food at kendells is delicious and filling, the meat was cooked to perfection, the... More

Arrived on time for an early booking and was shown to a wobbly table with wobbly unmatched chairs which appeared to come from a down market second hand shop. On request one was changed for a...

My glass for the first drink was chipped and cut my lip but the drink was soon replaced and my lip healed. The chairs are uneven heights and rather wobbly and actually not that comfortable. The menu is on blackboards which shows that the the menu is fresh and changeable although a printed version on the table would be easy... More

My partner booked this for my birthday, the young lady who greeted us was lovely, we got seated straight away a few minutes later a young man came along with a glass of champagne and wished me a happy birthday, I loved it, really nice touch! It was sooo busy, and had a bit of a wait for our food......... More

Not overly pricey, serves honest, quality, rustic food. Love the ambience and candle light. Great service. Really is one of my fave restaurant in Leeds which never gets boring.

Not only a lively buzzing restaurant, but excellent well presented french food. Courteous friendly staff, who also gave a glass of bubbly and petits fours to my husband as we celebrated his birthday. A varied and well chosen menu on the blackboard and all french wines. We would definitely recommend this and hope to return again when next in Leeds.
