Kendells Bistro is a casual Informal place to dine with the main focus on quality of food, wine and service within a French bistro atmosphere. It’s relaxed and informal - no waiters topping up wine glasses after every sip or sneaking up behind you with a six foot pepper mill. Cloth napkins but not starched, blackboard menus and open plan kitchen, intimate cosy candles flickering, friendly without pretence. In fact we are so french we don't charge for bread and we don't have a service charge!

Bookings of 5 or more will need to contact the restaurant directly, either by emailing info@kendellsbistro.co.uk or calling us on 0113 2436553.

One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The scallops for starter & steak for main was incredible. If I could give 6 stars I would.

Warm friendly greeting and as we’d said it was our anniversary a glass of champagne was waiting too. Great service throughout the meal and the food was superb, the atmosphere was lively and we’ll definitely go back.

We had a fantastic meal as always. Vegetarian options are the best anywhere. We can never find food this good in France. We could only get an early table but it was such good value and great quality. Highlight was the rhubarb and custard tart! Wish we lived nearer but always a bit to visit. Thank you

It was my first visit to Kendell's and we were not disappointed. The service was fantastic and amazed they had so many staff on duty. Food was good honest French food simple, delicious and so tasty. We were celebrating two birthdays and received a glass of fizz when we arrived and a birthday dessert plate. I would highly recommend Kendell's and can't wait until my next visit. Thank you

Greeted warmly at the door and given a choice of 2 tables. They didn’t mind when I wanted to swap a chair, we were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion which we were - wedding anniversary- and we were treated to a glass of fizz. Food was gorgeous and we will definitely go again when in Leeds. Can’t wait. By the time we left we felt like family. Highly recommend!

We was given a very warm welcome upon arrival and asked if we were celebrating anything special. Feeling a little embarrassed (as we’ve never been asked that before) we happily admitted that we were celebrating our 1st anniversary. We were seated and treated to our first drinks (on the house) to celebrate. From start to finish the staff were so accommodating and attentive we never felt neglected and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

The food, well what can I say every mouthful was a taste sensation, all credit where it is due to the chef and his/her team, that they can produce food that is so tantalisingly mouthwatering and leaves you wanting more.

I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice place to eat with great ambiance, good drinks and fantastic food. Will definitely be coming back, thank you Kendall’s.

We have been going to Kendell’s since it first opened and we have always been made to feel special. This time it was a birthday treat and the atmosphere food and service was 100% and value for money for 3 courses and half a bottle of wine

My favourite restaurant in Leeds, we had a great time. Amazing value for the quality of food. I’ve eaten here loads of times and I’m always really impressed.
I foolishly left my iPhone on my table and went off for a show at the arena...I realised in the interval but didn’t panick, I just knew it would have been spotted and looked after by the great staff. I nipped back down after the show had finished and my phone was there safe and sound - thank you

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday after coming for a Christmas party last year. We were greeted with a friendly smile and the waitress asked if the event was a special occasion, mentioned her birthday and thought nothing of it but were delighted to receive a glass of prosecco soon after we sat down - a very lovely touch!

The food, was absolutely incredible and we both opted for the 3 course menu with wine (great deal!). Another lovely touch with dessert as we received an extra slate board with Bon Anniversaire writte out in white chocolate with a few treats for her birthday.

Without a doubt one of the nicest spots in Leeds for a special occassion, will definitely be back soon!
