Kendell's Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding! I have been wanting to try Kendell's for some time - and now I know why I had such trouble getting a booking. To me, the meal starts with the ambience. Kendell's is a fairly large size but managed to achieve a cosy, intimacy - that I love.
What first attracted me to Kendell's - "No waiters topping up your wine. No service charge added." And the service lived up to this - friendly, funny, attentive at the start, but in no way overly solicitous.
And finally - the food. Inventive and delicious. E.g. the duck breast - not just sliced breast but also a shredded duck portioned in a sort of crispy won ton parcel. Delicious! Recommend.
A little pricey, but worth it. 5 STARS!
I’ve been wanting to try Kendell’s for a while, having seen strong reviews online.
I booked for my girlfriend and I for date night and an early celebration; we weren’t disappointed. The staff are first class, the food fantastic and the ambience was wonderful.
Fabulous meal in surroundings which provide the perfect ambience. Upon arrival my wife was wished a Happy Birthday and we received 2 complimentary glasses of pink champagne which I thought was a nice touch and very kind.
The food was excellent as ever and the service impeccable.
In a city with a plethora of choice in terms of top restaurants, I would very much recommend a visit to this first class establishment.
Kendell’s was recommended to me and I can only echo the glowing praise I heard. The fixed price menu is a deal and a half but i’ll be back to sample the huge a la carte offerings. The surroundings are warm and the atmosphere is lovely. Staff are friendly and helpful though we did have to ask to order and for the bill after a bit of a wait. Little things in the grand scheme, the really important stuff they had in spades, delicious food, good wine, great atmosphere...what’s not to love!
Brilliant service, very attentative staff . Food was amazing, really tasty, (food came a bit cooler than I would have liked though it took a bit longer to come too) general temperature in the dining area was a bit cool but atmosphere and environment felt cosy with candlelight. Great place for dating romantic night out and birthday or get together. Love how relaxing it was and were welcomed warmly. Wine I chose by chance was delicious. Desserts were all exceptional. Would go again x
Had an excellent pre-theatre meal. All our courses were delicious and high quality. The staff were attentive and although we were not rushed, we had plenty of time to get to the theatre. There was a lovely atmosphere to say it was very early in the evening. We will definitely return.
Went to Leeds to celebrate a birthday and asked a friend to recommend a restaurant, what a fantastic find we were made welcome from arrival to our departure, a lovely atmosphere with excellent food and wine. Well worth the drive from York. We will be back thank you.
Booked through open table for my birthday treat. ( compulsory shopping first ) I had black pudding starter and my wife had prawn starter. Both were excellent , followed by roast turkey plus trimmings again excellent, the turkey was very moist . Followed by a sweet which was again excellent. The only downside being charged £1.9 for o jug of tapestry having paid £30 for a fine bottle of Pinot Nior
First visit, very welcoming. Food right up our street, especially the Game offerings.
Generally love the french vibe to the menu, just as well...lol.
We only had a glass of wine each with the main course, sought the guidance of the wine waiter who picked out two different ones from the ‘by the glass’ section of the wine list that complemented the main courses... top man, top selection!
Meal was around what we usually pay for two, and cost wise, on a par with similar City Center establishments we’ve been to.
All in all really enjoyed the meal and ambiance, and will definitely make the effort to return again.
Love this restaurant, fab food, great service and lovely ambience. Been many times and one of my favourite restaurants in Leeds. Great a la carte menu and good value pre theatre. Always feel welcome. Love the fish soup and the moules, interesting veggie options and lovely fish dishes. Always a winner.
I'm tempted to write a terrible review to scare everyone away so that it won't get too popular and hard to get into but that would be grossly unfair! This place is a gem, a delight, a true once in a lifetime find. I took my wife there for her birthday and we had a wonderful evening. Delicious food, excellent selection of wines and we thought they'd missed a digit off the price - three courses for two people including drinks (though I was driving, so no alcohol for me) was just over £75 pounds. We've eaten worse food at £75 each plus wine!
I'm just waiting for an excude to go back...
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.
A lovely evening, greeted with a glass of champagne as it was our ruby wedding anniversary, beautiful restaurant authentic and positively charming , the staff were attentive and fun , without being intrusive, the food was amazing and generous portions , and a very good selection, not overpriced , will be returning soon
