We visited Kendalls as a party of 5 this weekend. We all had the early bird menu 3 courses for £20. We had a variety of choices for starters including salmon rillettes, black pudding and a goats cheese and beetroot tart. For our main courses we all had lamb leg steaks or steak Frites. We chose crime brûlée and chocolate... More

Four of us came here to celebrate two birthdays on Saturday night. Fantastic service throughout the meal. All the staff were attentive and happy to suggest both wine and side orders etc. Loved the décor and atmosphere although we were very lucky to have a rather large table at the side of the restaurant - it could possibly have been...

This was our second visit, and was extremely good again. The lady who greeted us was lovely, asked if we were celebrating anything special, and also commented that we'd previously eaten there ( must know through open table). Atmosphere, food and service were excellent and we will definitely be going back. One of our favourite restaurants in Leeds.

It's s real gem and a must visit if you're looking for excellent food in fantastic surroundings. The early bird menu is unbeatable value; all foods... More

I was part of a very large party through business. Although there was a lot of us the staff went out of their way to make sure we were looked after. The service was excellent, the staff were very polite and friendly. And the food......WOW. The party I was with booked from the a la carte menu. I ordered goats... More

Decided to visit here to see what all the hype was about and am very pleased we did. From walking in and being greeted with "Happy Anniversary", to the wonderful decor and amazing menu board, this place scores highly on all levels. The service is just right and the food simply perfect. We both agreed that this was some of... More

We booked kendells bistro for my mums 50th birthday meal with friends. The restaurant is beautiful looking inside. We got bread very soon after being seated and then all 3 courses followed at a good speed. Each course was gorgeous can not fault the food at all and would highly recommend. We ate from the tea time menu and as... More

I have returned to Kendells a number of times and it is one of, if not the best restaurant in Leeds city center. The staff are really friendly and give you a warm welcome, the ambiance is very romantic (ideal for a romantic meal for two) and the food is always excellent. I would strongly recommend the pre-theater menu as... More
