Lovely meal for two on Valentine's night. Prices very reasonable and food excellent as usual. Little touches like the photograph on our menu leaving were as thoughtful as ever. A star of the Leeds dining scene.

I did expect to give 5 Stars to this establishment, whilst I cant deny it was Good that's all it was. The plus points the atmosphere, the staff all very pleasant. The one thing that you go for, the food, was not as good as I expected. Would I go again, well maybe not by choice there are better places... More

Perfect for a night out with friends or a romantic dinner for two. The food and service are very good and would certainly go back. The only problems I encountered was trying to book a table - the restaurant is not that big so I expect they get booked up really quickly. However, fine dining as a reasonable price and... More

Just had a lovely meal from the tea time fixed price menu. Three courses and half bottle of wine in nice surroundings with excellent service from our waitress.

Huge, varied menu. Classic French cuisine. Really, really good food and service. I spent far too much, but got real value for money. I'll be going back soon.

Daughter and boyfriend treated us to dinner at Kendells. The menu is typically French standard cuisine. Between us we had onion soup, black pudding, duck, and ham shank followed by cheesecake accompanied by a bottle of house red. It was superb. Service was excellent. The best meal we have had in Leeds. Would thoroughly recommend it.

We booked this on recommendation from one of our daughters friends and it did not disappoint. Despite booking for 9.30 pm the restaurant was still full. The atmosphere was dark, candle lit throughout but no too noisy. The food was simply outstanding. The Roquefort tart for starter was delicious and followed this with sea bass, with green beans, mixed veg... More

First visit to this really lovely Bistro. A great atmosphere with attentive yet unobtrusive staff throughout the whole evening. The food was amazing with lots to choose from in starters and mains. Prices reflect the effort that's gone into prepping and serving such good food, not too expensive and well worth it! Will certainly go again.

We absolutely love this restaurant. We were warmly greeted and asked if it was for a special occasion. I mentioned it was for my daughters 21st and we were given brandy and a lovely dessert plate with Happy 21st Birthday at the end of the meal. The food was outstanding (the Duck and Steak were wonderful) as was the service.... More
