The best

This isn't one of the best restaurants I've ever been to, it is the BEST restaurant I've ever been to. Booked for 8pm and the place was almost full. Minor downside, it does get hot inside and noisy. First a basket of bread and butter arrives on your table which is included in the price, that... read more

We visited yesterday evening as a table of eleven for my brothers 40th birthday celebrations. I've been to Kendells maybe twenty times over the years and always raved about how fantastic it is, or should I say was. The restaurant was packed at 7.30 on a Tuesday evening with an overly loud buzz of customers (we couldn't hear my dad... More

We've eaten here many times before and once again the food was brilliant. This time we had a new guest unfamiliar with the restaurant and he was amazed. Particularly impressed by the menu choice and the supply of binoculars to see the black board menus.

I've been here twice with my wife and on both occasions we've had a fantastic night with delicious food. It's a fantastic place for a nice romantic candlelit meal. We'll definitely be visiting here again in the very near future

I can't recommend this place enough and have done to anyone looking for a place to eat. The food is delicious and the early bird menu very very good value. The staff were very welcoming. My only complaint was at the end we were left for too long and we were going to get cocktails but by the time we... More

We went to Kendells Bistro to celebrate our son's graduation. The service was very good and they made every effort to make it a special evening, warmly congratulating our son. The food was excellent and good value for high quality fresh food, with an interesting menu. The surrounds of the Bistro restaurant was arty chic; warm and welcoming. I would... More

We visited with some friends who live in Leeds & are regulars to this restaurant & three hours later we realised why as the food is excellent but with amazing decor this place is simply outstanding & we can't wait to be invited again so we can take them this time.

It reall got off to a bad start. Having been given the wine list, I spent a while looking at it and asked the waitress for a bottle of the premier cru Chablis. She asked if it was a red or a white. This restaurant is supposedly up market and I would expect those taking orders to know what a... More

I love this restaurant. If you are anywhere near leeds do not even think about going anywhere else this is the place to go. My wife and I ate here last night and just like our previous visits the service, food and atmosphere are in my opinion simply as good as you can get. Our exceptional evening started with our...
