Special restaurant for a special birthday meal

Hi All

I wonder if anybody can please recommend a really nice restaurant for my boyfriend's 50th birthday next month.

I'd like to book somewhere romantic where the tables aren't piled on top of each other, somewhere with nice (dimmed) lighting with excellent service and even better food where we can take our time.

We live in Leeds and have tried Kendall's Bistro (excellent), Mal Maison (the same), and then some of the busier establishments such as the Restaurant Bar & Grill. We'd like to try somewhere totally different and I wondered if anybody had had any really good experiences recently which fit the bill. Not adverse to travelling out of the City Centre, but central would be more convenient. I can spend up to £150 for a really nice meal for two with drinks.

Many thanks.

I eat out in Leeds a lot as I work in the city. Our current favourite place is The Foundry. The food is great and the service very good - we keep going back. I'm sure if you told them it was a special occasion they would find you a nice, quiet table!


Beforehand you could perhaps go to the SkyLounge for a drink - not cheap but incredible views, good cocktails etc and I'm reliably informed by my kids that it's 'cool'
