It was our wedding anniversary, I hadn’t mentioned that when I booked.
The receptionist asked why we were dining. I said it was our 30 wedding anniversary.
We were shown to the table, where I ordered drinks. They came and along with them were two glasses of complimentary champagne, this was a lovely surprise.
We ordered our food and waited.
The food was fabulous, the service was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for them. When the bill came, I was asked if I was paying the service charge, rather than assuming it would be paid, which I thought was another nice gesture.
Overall a wonderful experience I would recommend to anyone to give it a try.
Well done to all the staff and management at the Crafthouse, thank you.

This isn’t an everyday restaurant but the meal was a special occasion and the experience was very much special. The service from entering was exceptional and second to none! Little things like not being asked who is having what meal and the server knowing who is having what dish goes a long way. Our drinks where never left dry nor did we have to prompt to order more drinks, the service was seamless. The food again was outstanding and there is much more else to say other than that. Thank you for truly wonderful experience.

Gorgeous restaurant with lovely views, smart and welcoming. We had a couple of issues with the cooking of the steaks, but this was quickly ammended and we were not charged. Superb service, delicious desserts and the mini lemon friands were to die for, a great evening out!

Went to CraftHouse for Graduation. Never had been before but had heard good things... And we're not disappointed. The restaurant is very nicely decorated. We were seated straight with water arriving shortly after. The staff were great, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious though a little on the small side. All in all a great experience, with great food and great staff. Will be back!

Having dined at Crafthouse some years ago when it was under the direction of the original Exec Chef Lee who opened the restaurant I was looking forward to another experience for my daughters graduation. Unfortunately my return visit didn't live up to my expectations. Personally I think the the restaurant's focus (in conjunction with Angelic's rooftop bar above) is more in the direction on a "Bar with Food" rather than a Restaurant. The setting & surroundings are fabulous but I think the dining experience needs improvement.

Overall, very good. Both mine and fellow diner’s rib eye steaks were a little on the sinewy-side. Service very attentive if felt a touch over eager to charge the glasses with wine/water...perhaps being a little harsh.

Something missing

We have eaten here many times before and loved it. I wonder if it has changed hands and last night it just wasn’t the usual experience.

We were sat at a nice table with a view. My daughter went to the loo and my wife went to check out coats (no one offered to take them) but the waitress still came over and distributed menus and started going through what wasn’t available on the menu even though there was only myself sat down.

The menu has changed so that sharing dishes (£85 beef) no longer comes which a couple of side dishes and sauce so these have to be ordered separately.

We ordered the Côté de beef medium rare and a separate steak rare.

Starters were good and large.

The main course came after a long time and the rare steak was cooked correctly but stone cold and the core de beef was cooked right through with not a bit of pink in site (in my opinion well done rather than medium rare).

I think standards at this restaurant are slipping and probably will try somewhere else next time we want an expensive steak meal

We were due to go to HOME this evening, however they messed up our booking and so we ended up at Crafthouse, and I am glad that we did. Perfect for a romantic meal, service was brilliant, and food delish. Thank you !

This is a favourite venue for a special lunch with girlfriends. We go every three months or so and the fixed price lunch menu is always different and excellent value. The dishes are all beautifully presented and just that little bit out of the ordinary. Never been disappointed.
The service is always excellent - but not overpowering or over attentive.
Wish we could find more places like this!

Atmosphere and food were great. We weren’t rushed at any point to leave the table which is always nice.
The only thing that wasn’t as good was the service. It was slow, our waiter was distracted, I had to chase both rounds of drinks (our food came before our first drinks). The waiter split water over the table (a complete accident) but never came back to clean it up. The service just wasn’t as good as expected.

Superb food in lovely surroundings. Attentive service made for a very pleasurable evening. A 'tad' on the expensive side, but worth it given the skill of the chefs. Presentation of food was beautiful and the sauce accompanying the fillet divine.

My partner and I came for his birthday. We had not been here before.
Everything was excellent, food was fantastic and the service great.
The only slight snag was the wine we wanted by the bottle only seemed to be available by the carafe, the waiter wasn’t able to find us an alternatively confidently.
However we still had a lovely evening and would definitely come again.

The best restaurant in Leeds. Great location overlooking the rooftops, food excellent, great choice; and good wines. It's not cheap though, £60 per head incl wine, so a special occasion place.

Cheff was happy to alter menu due to me being pregnant. Was also moved to a different table which could accommodate my bump with more comftable seating without any hesitation. Server had a very personal manner which was welcomed on our visit. Ambience perfect for a romantic meal.

Visiting from London, I highly recommend Crafthouse! The ambiance is fantastic, although it's pretty noisy. The food was excellent as well! We had a fixed price menu which made it excellent value, but, had we chosen from the "normal" menu, it would have been incredibly pricey indeed - at least London prices. All in all though, we loved it and would highly recommend it!

Still the best restaurant in Leeds. I had the set menu for a change, amazing value and no compromise on the quality.

We try new places but nothing comes close.

Our waitress Katie was outstanding, professional, friendly and knows her stuff.

Head Chef... outstanding

Well done Crafthouse!
