Went there for an office dinner. The food was really nice although the portions were a bit small for my taste. A place definitely worth a visit though!

Been for the early bird menu at kendells tonight. The food was perfect as always. I had savoury salmon cheesecake to start then duck and black forest gateaux to finish. Gorgeous!

I looked forward to visiting this place after reading some of the reviews - it sounded perfect as a venue to my brother when he was visiting from 'that London'. He's used to the likes of Ramsay and Hawksmoor, he wanted to treat us to a lovely meal and I wanted to show him that Leeds was capable of similar.... More

My husband and I visited Kendell's on a Saturday night for a pre-theatre meal. Front of house was very friendly and welcoming, as were our servers. After being seated we were served a glass of bubbles to wish us a happy anniversary - nice touch. I had fois gras and black pudding to start. The black pudding was devine, the... More

I've dined here on a few occasions and every time I have to give Kendells 5 stars. I absolutely love the style of the restaurant, right from the way you are greeted, to the setting/decorations and the black board every changing menu. They manage to give the feel of an occasion restaurant which is also so laid back and comfortable... More

The pre theatre meal is excellent value and a good selection from the main menu. It was pre Christmas and very busy but they made certain we had time to enjoy our 2 courses. We really enjoyed the pate and then the rabbit. We only had sparkling water and overall very good value. Intend to visit and try the main... More
