Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went last night and everything about this place is first class. There were 4 adults and one child in our party. For starters 3 adults had the garlic mushrooms which were beautiful and the other adults starter was calamari, I honestly cannot think of...anywhere that I have had nicer calamari, it was gorgeous (I’m glad that my father gave me one to try !!). For mains I had pizza which was really nice, the other mains were Beef stroganoff, pasta (I can’t remember the name but it was the one with broccoli) and the 3rd main was off the specials board. This was the pan fried sea bass. The little one had the kids chicken bites with chips which she ate every bit. Everyone said that their food was first class, all the food was nice and hot which my wife is funny about and the staff were excellent. All in all a fantastic meal with the familyMore

I visited today for the first time with my children, mum and mother in law for Mother’s Day. I cannot fault the food at all, it was beautiful, however I was disappointed with the overall service. We seemed to be waiting a very long time...to be served between courses, especially the dessert where we waited way over 30 minutes for 2 desserts. I also don’t feel the staff were very attentive. From a food point of view I would visit again but the service let it down unfortunately.More

“Mum, I don’t want to go anywhere too fancy … or too casual”, my son said. It’s hard to get grown up sons together for celebrations when they are scattered to the four winds, and you don’t know the restaurants in Leeds. Throw in a...mum who has accessibility needs and the search gets harder. I scrolled for hours, WhatsApp was on constantly as we messaged back and forth options, but as soon as I stumbled upon Gallery 41, I sensed we’d found the place. And they happen to have a 20% of all food deal on throughout November for certain days, which just happened to coincide with N’s birthday. It was a no-brainer. So, after a two-and-half-hour journey, collecting two sons along the way, followed by a pleasant, but chilly, afternoon wandering around Kirkstall Abbey, we were ready to eat, and, my, did we eat handsomely. There’s a saying that you are never fully grown up until you can say you enjoy olives. I cannot abide them and am quite happy to stay in child-like innocence for the rest of my days, but both sons and dearly-beloved love them, so a side of olives was the perfect starting point as they fell into that easy chatter that gives all mums a warm syrupy feeling when they observe it. Hey, they made it to adulthood and still enjoy each other’s company … you must have done something right, girl. Then the garlic bread. Son A says, “Mum, this dough is amazing … some of the nicest garlic bread I’ve ever tasted.” He’s a professional foodie and knows stuff like that. And it was…gorgeous, creamy, light, and gone too quickly. I made one mistake. I only ordered one portion of the Skin Fries. They are Moreish with a capital M. We almost had a fight over the last ones, but being a kind, generous soul, I let the birthday boy have them. Students in Leeds apparently don’t feed themselves properly, and the poor boy looked starving. Then the main event. The two meat eaters ordered Spiced Pepperoni and enthused about the huge chunks of Pepperoni, the jalapenos, more olives, what superb grade of tomatoes had been used, just the right amount of oregano and the velvety mozzarella, that pillowy soft dough, and the sheer size of the dish. Those lessons about using a knife and fork were lost – they were enjoying it so much. Dearly-beloved had the Vegetarian, packed with tender, sweet aubergines, and courgettes, seasoned with thyme and rosemary. I hovered over a Risotto, but was under strict instructions to order a pizza, so that ‘fair’ taste swaps could be done (Note, two sons chose pepperoni, the ploy being that we would never swap with them, but they could ask for samples of the veggie choices knowing that good parents would not refuse a hungry child!). So, I chose my absolute favourite. A pizza to outdo all pizzas when done well. The Florentina. Feathery clouds of mozzarella enfolding gorgeous tomatoes, baby spinach cooked to perfection - so clean and mild, with not one hint of bitterness, nutty-sharp parmesan, and, of course, an egg perfectly done right at the centre, that oozed and ran freely in the way any self-respecting egg should. I wrapped my arms around it protectively and muttered, “Mine, all mine…”, but it was of course shared, and pronounced glorious by all. “Dessert? You still have room for dessert?” Silly question. Dearly-beloved always goes for the stickiest, gooiest chocolate cake there is. Son A, having eaten as much of everybody else’s pizza as he could get away with, in addition to his own, unsurprisingly decided an Americano was the perfect finish to his meal. Son N chose a Tiramisu, which arrived with candles and the sound of everyone singing ‘Happy Birthday’ which was a lovely, kind touch. Son A found a new appetite, insisted he didn’t want one of his own, but helped his brother eat his! I always look for a lemon dessert, so chose a simple sorbet, followed by a pot of English Breakfast – just the thing to warm the insides before leaving this fabulous restaurant and going out into the cold night. It's difficult to get scattered adult children together, but Gallery 41 provided just the right atmosphere. No loud music, just a gentle background of sound, that made conversation easy. Beautiful, clean, well thought out space. We were in the conservatory which felt like having our own personal dining room. The staff have achieved that just-right balance of being attentive and friendly without being overbearing. The menu is far more varied than I’ve made it sound, with some gorgeous sounding dishes. I have two more sons and a wonderful daughter-in-love, unable to join us for this meal, so perhaps a return visit may be in order – and a memo to self to order far more Skin Fries when it happens. It's the simple things that matter in life. Family celebrations, good conversation, food that is cooked with love and care, and finding ways to say ‘ti amo’ when the family table isn’t a practical option to gather around. Gallery 41 was the perfect place to slow down for a couple of hours and share quality time with some of my family, and I thank them for their hospitality.More

Menu has changed since we were here last but more mainstream and they also have a kids menu. Prawn cocktail was delicious, as was the pasta - not something I usually order but always great here. Everything tastes freshly made and they still have the...option of a 'mini' dessert with a coffee - great if you've indulged in a starter and main already. A great place to eat midweek and on a special occasion.More

First time visiting this restaurant and really wasn’t sure what to expect. The food was amazing, we had no complaints what so ever between a big group of not the easiest straightforward people! Everything was so fresh tasty and cooked to perfection. The team in...the restaurant handled our party of 14 very well and professionally. I don’t think it’s too badly priced for the food (I had 3 courses for under £25) Would recommend and return! Thank you!More

We ate here as a family midweek. We thought the starters were overpriced. £6.50 for the garlic mushrooms which were thinly sliced - not full mushrooms and not really garlicky. Mains were quite nice although my partner would have preferred more sauce with the carbonara,...he thought it was a bit dry. The grilled lamb and chicken skewers were lovely. No draft beer - £7 for large bottles of beer. It was nice but nothing outstanding and I think a little overpriced for location.More

I got the spinach and garlic chilli side which was one of the freshest and nicest dishes I have eaten recently, a gorgeous balance of fresh garlic...and fiery chilli an absolute 10/10and a must try. We had a garlic bread with mozzarella to share which again fresh thin and crispy absolutely perfect in my book. Mains were delicious also and the portions are of good size, all in all I would rate this place an awesome 5/5 for food and service. All staff very polite and courteous would definitely recommend to others!More

We went to Gallery 41 for dinner yesterday and had the worst restaurant experience ever. After an hour and 40 mins we had only had our starters brought to us and would have to call someone's attention to ask for more drinks and to have...our empty glasses taken. There were people that arrived alot later than us that already had their mains well before us. Then our table collapsed with meaning that our drinks fell off the table along with my husbands phone. My husbands phone smashed as a result of this. When we told the waiter that we wanted to leave we then learned that our food hadn't even begun to be prepared! This is absolutely disgraceful. We waited for an hour and 40 mins and our food hadn't even been prepared!! I wish that I could give 0 stars!More

Loved this restaurant before the lock-down and even better now with the newly built covered outdoor areas. Food as amazing as ever, very reasonable waiting time and lovely helpful staff. We've always found the owner to be extremely friendly so it's a great night out.
