Love the beautiful tastes of the stunning food presented like art on the plate. Fine dining and incredible service with a great atmosphere. With perfect decor, ambiance and views, Craft house is a desirable, must-visit restaurant.

Something missing

We have eaten here many times before and loved it. I wonder if it has changed hands and last night it just wasn’t the usual experience.

We were sat at a nice table with a view. My daughter went to the loo and my wife went to check out coats (no one offered to take them) but the waitress still came over and distributed menus and started going through what wasn’t available on the menu even though there was only myself sat down.

The menu has changed so that sharing dishes (£85 beef) no longer comes which a couple of side dishes and sauce so these have to be ordered separately.

We ordered the Côté de beef medium rare and a separate steak rare.

Starters were good and large.

The main course came after a long time and the rare steak was cooked correctly but stone cold and the core de beef was cooked right through with not a bit of pink in site (in my opinion well done rather than medium rare).

I think standards at this restaurant are slipping and probably will try somewhere else next time we want an expensive steak meal

This is a favourite venue for a special lunch with girlfriends. We go every three months or so and the fixed price lunch menu is always different and excellent value. The dishes are all beautifully presented and just that little bit out of the ordinary. Never been disappointed.
The service is always excellent - but not overpowering or over attentive.
Wish we could find more places like this!

Atmosphere and food were great. We weren’t rushed at any point to leave the table which is always nice.
The only thing that wasn’t as good was the service. It was slow, our waiter was distracted, I had to chase both rounds of drinks (our food came before our first drinks). The waiter split water over the table (a complete accident) but never came back to clean it up. The service just wasn’t as good as expected.

Superb food in lovely surroundings. Attentive service made for a very pleasurable evening. A 'tad' on the expensive side, but worth it given the skill of the chefs. Presentation of food was beautiful and the sauce accompanying the fillet divine.

My partner and I came for his birthday. We had not been here before.
Everything was excellent, food was fantastic and the service great.
The only slight snag was the wine we wanted by the bottle only seemed to be available by the carafe, the waiter wasn’t able to find us an alternatively confidently.
However we still had a lovely evening and would definitely come again.

Visiting from London, I highly recommend Crafthouse! The ambiance is fantastic, although it's pretty noisy. The food was excellent as well! We had a fixed price menu which made it excellent value, but, had we chosen from the "normal" menu, it would have been incredibly pricey indeed - at least London prices. All in all though, we loved it and would highly recommend it!

Still the best restaurant in Leeds. I had the set menu for a change, amazing value and no compromise on the quality.

We try new places but nothing comes close.

Our waitress Katie was outstanding, professional, friendly and knows her stuff.

Head Chef... outstanding

There was mix up with our booking, we were booked into Angelica rather than Crafthouse. This was sorted & we were taken down a floor to Crafthouse. We found the portion size of the starter to be tiny. It was tasty & attractively presented, but we were expecting more to eat. Because of that we appreciated the warm bread roll and butter which were complimentary. The main course was fine but we had to pay extra for vegetables, which seems to be the norm now. The ambience was smart but not stuffy, & the waiting staff were fantastic. We enjoyed our meal, but it was rather expensive for what was offered. However we appreciate that the city centre location & the rooftop views will command a high price.

Had the tasting menu.
Food was AMAZING! Loved every bite.
Unfortunately the service was slow and I wasn’t given the final wine of my wine pairing.
The maitre d’ kindly took all of our drinks off the bill to make for it.
It’s a lovely restaurant with nice atmosphere but the furniture’s starting to look a bit shabby now and I wasn’t keen on the live singer and musician, sorry!

Nice place but service too intrusive and fast at 6pm as the restaurant was quite and too many staff looking for something to do. For the price of the food at £14 for a starter and £23 for a main it wasn’t refined or good enough. The food was still good but the poorest I have had when paying similar prices. The puddings however were excellent. The five sharing selection was delicious and great value.

Pretty good but not good enough to rush back to with the other competition in Leeds.
