What an amazing little restaurant in Leeds. Such a lovely atmosphere and the staff can't do enough for you - in particular Jess has been great both times we have visited. It was my friends birthday the first time we went and we got a glass of champagne on the house each and some desert. The food is delicious and... More

Another great night out at Kendell's. The staff make you feel at home immediately and the surroundings exude French style. Choosing your meal from the big blackboards is fun whether you go and get a picture on phones or use the house binoculars from your table. Food, service, ambience and atmosphere is first class. I have had romantic dinners, family... More

Kendells Bistro Leeds Oh La la we were taken here by a good friend who lives in Leeds and had highly recommended it as an authentic French bistro. The restaurant is tucked away in a side street a little way out of the city centre but getting there proved to be well worth the effort and the taxi fare. We... More

Went with six friends and we all chose the 3 course menu which came with half a bottle of wine per head. Perfect! Enjoyed my French onion soup, Menage a trois (mushrooms served three ways) and Black Forest Gateau (which was light and delicious- more like a mousse). As the only vegetarian in the party, I could have wished for... More

I actually worked here many years ago before it became 'the' restaurant in Leeds to go to for a special occasion and after eating here a few weeks ago it's great to see the standards are still sky high. Steve is an awesome guy and the most talented, passionate chef I've ever seen.

Last minute booking via OpenTable - found one of two slots they had available at 8.30 on a Saturday night. Showed up, quick check by the staff and we were seated next to the bar in the far corner from the door (near the toilets, though you wouldn't realise). One bottle of champagne, two ribeye steaks & two desserts later... More

I visited this restaurant during a course dinner with a large number of colleagues. We had three course dinners and we were given the option to pre-order online. The food was really nice and I was told the prices were reasonable. Acknowledging the huge task of catering for a large group (more than 40), the food was served fresh. Unfortunately... More
