This was my fist visit for dinner after having a number of exceptionally enjoyable lunches. Even before arrived my friend who had arrived early messaged "the menu looks fantastic" and she was right. Rarely do I struggle to chose my selections but there were so many I wanted to try both in starters and mains. We were not disappointed. Some great fish and veggie options. I had seafood linguine with a beautiful sauce around an excellent variety of prawns, scallops & calamari. My friend raved over her miso roasted cauliflower. Treated ourselves to a selection of deliciously unusual flavored ice creams and sorbets. Seriously recommend the raspberry & sorrel sorbet and ginger ice cream laden with crystallized ginger pieces.
Great, friendly but unobtrusive service and feeling very safe with cleaning and hygiene protocols in place.
Until next time!

Located just 5 minutes away walk from Leeds train station, this is a gem of a place and I would not hesitate to return or recommend.

The food was incredible - we had starters, main (Cote de boeuf), and dessert + cheese board. Plus, an array of drinks too.

The service was impeccable - we were unfortunately late for our reservation and Whitehall were so accommodating. The servers were attentive, personal and charming.

The decor was lovely, ambient lighting (Saturday) and extremely clean - Covid compliant.

Priced to reflect the quality - thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

Nice surrounding, pleasant staff who were helpful and attentive. Food on the whole was very good, however my rib eye steak was tough and as it was not up to their usual standard the young manageress offered straight away to amend the bill. My friend’s flat iron steak was perfectly cooked to her liking. On the while would recommend this restaurant.

We’ve eaten here a few times and the place is lovely. The food wasn’t as good as it’s been before (it wasn’t very hot and tasted like it had been out on the plate too long before being served) but overall it was good and due to our previous good experiences we would visit again.
Service was a little slow to start with but after our order was taken the service was really good.

Thank you Sophie for being an amazing waitress, friendly, very helpful, chatty,. Nothing was a problem, I asked to remove one item from my starter and change the cheese on my main dish and she smiled with her eyes and said the changes were not a problem at all.
Throughout the meal she checked in and made us feel very welcome and ‘part of the family’ which isn’t easy when you are only visiting for the day.
Please pass a huge Thank You’ onto Sophie and good luck in your future x
