We went as a couple of ladies for a pre theatre meal. The staff asked if we were attending the theatre when we arrived. They pushed things along nicely ( but no pressure ) to make sure we we out on time. We opted for the three course menu with half a bottle of wine. The food was lovely : nicely cooked, presented & tasty . It was the first time my guest had been to Kendells & she was very impressed, would definitely come again.

Delicious food and absolutely amazing service! It was my boyfriend's birthday and we were given complimentary fizz and a small dessert.

We aren't from Leeds, it was our first time visiting, so we didn't know where to go for a drink. We were given a list of good pubs etc., extremely friendly and helpful staff!

Visited Kendell's Bistro for the first time on Saturday. Perfect evening with fantastic service and fab food. Was greeted with Anniversary wishes and a complimentary glass of fizz (a very nice personal touch).

Will definitely be visiting again soon...probably will become our new favourite restaurant!

We had a superb meal ordering from the "tea-time" menu which is amazing value.
Service was friendly and attentive.
We intend to book again very soon and would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves good food and a great atmosphere.

Have been to Kendell’s a few times & have never been disappointed. The food is consistently delicious and service is great. If you’re a fan of rustic French cuisine you will not be disappointed. The occasion was for my wife’s birthday & she was looking forward to this all day & was pleased with the complimentary glass of fizz. Plus a sweet treat before we left.

A little bit of France hidden away in an unexpected part of Leeds! An amazing restaurant. The food was delicious and the ambience was perfect for our date.
We stayed for over 4 hours and probably outstayed our welcome but the staff were friendly throughout and did not hurry us to leave.
My favourite restaurant in Leeds so far!

We went as a couple of friends belatedly celebrating our birthdays. After reading the reviews, we went with high expectations, which is dangerous. But not on this occasion; Kendall's Bistro, surpassed our expectations.

A fabulous restaurant, with a really nice ambience and the food, was incredible.

Definitely recommend and will definitely be going back :)

A fabulous atmosphere, intimate yet friendly and warm. The food is delicious, classic French cuisine that more than satisfies, without pretension . The wine lists offers quality at a reasonable price. It is an ideal venue for a tête a tête or get together with friends , l look forward to a return visit.

 (Norfolk)·Dined on 27 October 2017

Had a lovely evening at Kendells, in terms of both atmosphere and food. Had early bird before on a previous visit but this time we had one early bird and one a la carte - both just as good. Service is good but unobtrusive - just a slightly longer wait than maybe expected for our main courses, which she did apologise for without being asked. Food was just as it was described on the menu - very French and very tasty. Nice wines by the glass to accompany - one red, one white. We don't have any allergies but we were asked by our waitress if we did, so any allergy sufferers should be well catered for.
Will most certainly be back for more.

Lovely restaurant with a great pre-theatre menu. Service was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice. The only negative was that unlike most French restaurants in France, the wine options were quite pricey with no house wines.
