Being visitors to Leeds we picked a restaurant close to our hotel. Bingo. We had a delicious meal here on a quiet Thursday evening. The steak was delicious, with equally delicious halloumi and aubergine. Great service too.

We chose the Whitehall based on other reviews - immediately made to feel so welcome and all the waiting staff were brilliant. The food lived up to expectation and we were blown away with our special anniversary being marked with a lovely surprise dessert!
Thankyou so much to all at the Whitehall for such a great evening.

We went to this restaurant in a Sunday early evening before bank holiday Monday and so the popular Sunday roasts were on the menu. The service was excellent from the front of house to the waiting team who were very attentive and proactive. The environment is modern and smart but I did get a chill from the door being opened. I would go back.

Highly recommend this place . Food different but in a good way . Presentation good.
Staff very attentive but not in your face. Alcohol reasonably priced for Leeds .
Just a five min walk from the centre of Leeds but more than worth the walk.
I think this is my new favourite place to eat in Leeds.

Only down side the floor is so clean and highly polished that it is slippy in heals so just be careful.

Welcoming and inviting. All staff were tentative, alert, but indiscreet at the same time. The food was attractive and vey enjoyable: the ingredients were of good quality. It was a birthday treat for one, which was enjoyable and made special by the team.

Nice location, the food was really good eventually but we waited over an hour between starter and main. The starter (king scallops) wasn't really king, we got 3 small scallops but very tasty. The steak was very good and good value but the Tuna had to be sent back as was well done but the next one was really good but I don't think its good value money.
nice place, nice atmosphere

Lived in Leeds city centre over 5 years now and this was as good a meal as we have had in that time.

I highly recommend this lovely restaurant and we look forward to visiting again as soon as we can.

First time visit to this restaurant. Staff very friendly and efficient. Food was great, tasty, well cooked and presented. House wine was pretty good as part of early bird menu. Nice to have a buzz of people in the place, but needs something to help with noise levels as it was a bit too loud at times. Just needs some baffle boarding or something to deaden noises. Overall, I would go again.

A superb meal and service in this relatively new restaurant. Service was excellent throughout - thoughtful and timely. Food was first class - tomato tartare and King scallops to start, both very good, then the truffle and thyme gnocchi (with chicken) and crispy pork belly as mains - both also delicious, then we both had the white chocolate cheesecake for dessert, and again both enjoyed these very much. A faultless experience, and will certainly go again.

The service was superb! The waitresses who served us were all so lovely and attentive, a real credit to the restaurant.

The only downside is that I’d like to see more vegetarian options on the menu.
