A really fantastic food experience. The choice was only matched by the attentiveness of the staff. Although rather expensive I felt it was well worth it

I visited this place with my boyfriend about a week before Valentine's day.We had fantastic evening.Love the fact menu is written on blackboard-environmentally friendly.Food was excellent,free re-fill of french bread at the beginning extra bonus! We also liked relaxing music and funky decorated toilets.Not too busy on weekday's night so could talk undisturbed. Thanks!

We had reserved in advance and glad we did, it was very busy and a great ambience. The restaurant feels very authentic and there was a great selection of food and drink. The service was good until we wanted to pay our bill and then we struggled to get any of the staffs attention. The food was very good but... More

First time at this restaurant and wasn't disappointed. Meal was excellent and waiter/waitresses were lovely. They didn't hover or top up the wine when you've only had a sip, they just simply let us have our meal in peace which is how we like it. We both had snails to start which was different to how we have had snails... More

My husband and i go to Kendalls at least four times a year. Good value on food and wine especially on early bird. Vegetarian selections are nice even for meat eaters.

I thought nothing of it and while... More

Good quality food. large portions. Excellent desserts. Professional, cheerful staff. good for pre-theatre meals, parties and romantic meals. Lots of candles, lavish decor, french music. Meat tends to be cooked pink so check if you do not like it like this. Bread not the best, but free, a little too much pepper in carrot purée. Overall enjoyable meal.

Booked a table based on trip advisor reviews. Arrived at 8.30 and was very busy we were sat near the door right by the menu boards which we found a bit intrusive as people were standing right next to us to look so we asked to move and were given a much better table with no issue. Atmosphere is good... More
