Bistro
It’s all about a different atmosphere. It’s about good food. It’s about good service and attention to detail. There’s a reason Sous Le Nez is renowned in Leeds. In fact, our award-winning basement bar and bistro – in a handy, city centre location – has been providing mouth-watering food to Leeds diners since 1991. Our wine list is as unique as it is extensive, and our lunchtime and evening menus are creative and very popular. And our portions are huge too!

Not been here for many years. Very good meal and good to see it busy in these tough times. Although we did not arrive in time for the early bird menu de soir we were allowed to pick some dishes from there is these were more suitable for our kids - such as moules and fries. Very good staff and first class evening before lockdown!!!

It has been a while since we came to Sous Le Nez and the penultimate night before the second Lockdown my husband and I came to Leeds and revisited somewhere we used to frequent all the time.

We are glad we did, the service was great despite there obviously being restrictions on how they would usually operate. Even though we didn't sit down at our table for 20 mins it didn't matter, in that time we had waited in the bar area with a glass of wine, chosen our bottle of red for the meal, and had the chance to look and order from the menu. All felt very relaxed.

The advice re our wine choice was great and the recommendation really did reflect what we had asked for.

We ordered the scallops and the black pudding starters, followed by lamb and the steak gateaux. All four dishes were well seasoned and well cooked.

We were slightly pushed for time for deserts, but my request for the fondant was accepted and I had time to enjoy it and finish my wine before heading out at 10pm.

Great 'last meal' before the inevitable. We won't leave it as long next time.

Our 3rd visit this time for our Anniversary. It's been at least 10 years since we were last there and I for one am glad the menu hadn't altered much in that time.
Food was delicious as always and the service impeccable.

Good to be back after a 7 month hiatus. Usual high standards achieved and glad to see it was busy (for a Monday)
French onion soup still a knockout
Rump steak in peppercorn sauce off early bird menu tasty if a little chewy (would go a la carts and order ribeye (the usual cut of choice)
Haddock spinach mash and cheese sauce excellent as always
Desserts very good
Massimo looked after us well; great to see him around!
£142 for 4 including drinks
Early bird terrific value but I’d spend that bit more if ordering steak

A trip to Sous Le Nez is always a pleasure - friendly and attentive staff, great food and a surprisingly decent price. Good wine list too, of course. We been coming here (not frequently but from time to time) since my husband proposed to me there. Twenty years later and we still love the place.

We love this place!! Pre lockdown it was a favourite and this hasn’t changed during what has been a difficult time for everyone. We feel totally secure and safe here and this helps us have a really enjoyable, relaxed meal out. These guys have maintained their ever high standards, great service and fantastic food! French onion soup is a must, as is steak!! The wine list is also just, amazing!

It was good to return after the Covid closure and reassuring to see that standards and service remain very high. Had a delicious meal from the Menu of the Day and plan to return soon. The restaurant has set a high bar which other French style/bistros fail to reach. Just a shame to see it so quiet in the centre of the city.

Has a wonderful lunch with a colleague on Tuesday. We were made most welcome and felt the restaurant was well Covid prepared and lots of space and privacy. All staff spoke to us in a friendly way and the food was as always exquisite. Highly recommended and please support them -overall mid-week business is low -local businesses need our support

Unfortunately our visit was during the covid restrictions so our review of the ambience wasn't a true reflection but the service and food quality was to the usual standard. All the best to Sous me Nez in these difficult times.
