Scallop starter was disappointing, only 4 very small scallops, certainly not queen scallop size as described in menu.

We can never fault the food, service and experience at The Whitehall - by far our favourite restaurant in Leeds and if you sit outside you can bring your dog!

Excellent food and service.

Great to chat to the Manager (?) who used to work at Sous le Nez, 6 of us all enjoyed our food and time and will likely be back.

The only criticism was the loudness of the venue - it is a very open plan dining area and we found it quite loud!

Otherwise a really good place, including for larger groups!

Took my Dad for lunch, he agreed that it is a lovely setting, feels very grown up and understated. Lots of friendly staff, with a level of input that didnt feel intrusive.
We both enjoyed the very nicely presented food, with a lovely bottle of wine, which we were well advised on.
Can not wait to be there again.

This popular, modern British restaurant in the city centre has something on the menu to please just about every one. While the hard surfaces and high ceilings of the restaurant combine to ensure it feels full with the laughter of just a couple of tables, the front of house team are attentive to ensure you never wait or wonder for long and the food is well executed.

Came here for our second visit for my birthday lunch. We are from the lunch menu, I had pate, fish and chips and my husband had smoked salmon and steak. Both dishes were delicious.

We had a couple of cocktails at the bar before, really liked the Lemoncello Spritz.

Another gorgeous meal and we will be back in a couple of weeks.
