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

Returned here for a guaranteed great meal and were not disappointed. We have yet to find a better restaurant in Leeds that ticks all our boxes, so until then we will continue to return here for good service and great food. Our visit, on a very busy Saturday evening coincided with a large 60th birthday party which did mean the... More

Very atmospheric candlelight throughout which some may find off putting but I thought wonderful. Food and wine first class the very helpful staff make sure you are out for the theatre time. This apart from everything else was novel and I only wish other eating establishments would take note. Will certainly visit again just for the food alone. The three... More

This was the first time we had been to Kendells,we were given a voucher as a christmas present and decided to use it for our 29th wedding anniversary. Everything from the service to the food could not have been better. We chose to both eat off the early bird menu. My wife's starter of smoked salmon with a light filling... More
