About Arts - 42 Call Lane
Arts is one of Leeds' first independent restaurants opening its doors in 1994. The focus is on the great local produce available and combining this with global cuisines to create excellent, flavour driven dishes at great value.
Perfect for every occasion, Arts offer lunch, dinner, Sunday lunches and weekend brunches.
Not only are we a restaurant but a gallery space that showcases the best of local artistic talent on a rotating schedule.
Lovely food and service. It was good to be in a place on a Saturday night where you could hear the conversation. Friendly and welcoming staff too
We have been eating at Arts on our annual shopping trip to Leeds for the last few years. As previously, the food and service was excellent.
Delicious food, lovely relaxed atmosphere and really excellent service from all the team. Great value for money too. Highly recommended Leeds dining experience.
Have been visiting Arts (Cafe) a few times over many years, and have always been impressed with the quality of service, and particularly the food choices. The food was always very good. However now, something had changed radically, when we visited to celebrate recently. Limited food choices at lunchtime, uninteresting food. Not many staff, tables being left uncleared, slow service (although we had plenty of time so we were ok, but others were not we could see). Noticed the premises had had a refit. But could not understand why Arts was so disappointing this time. So when got home checked - and yes - not only a new chef, but new owners - for the first time in 24 years ! That explains it! Such a shame, it is so different, and probably won't be back again.
A hidden gem! In fact we nearly passed the main door. We would definitely dine there again.
Love it here, never a disappointing experience
The service was poor. Long wait (30 mins) for food and very sullen bordering on rude member of staff. I won’t be returning which is a shame as I’ve enjoyed my previous visits.
Absolutely beautiful meal. Fresh produce that really shone through on the plate. Can’t wait to return.
We had a lovely evening - I was amazed the restaurant wasn't full as it deserves to be busy, it's the best meal out I've had in Leeds for months.
Would highly recommend
Best place in leeds for me
lovely food, lovely atmosphere, lovely service - nothing about this place I don't like - its a treasure :)
Great tasting food and good selection of alcoholic drinks.
I dine here more often than not when visiting Leeds and am never disappointed.
Lovely food as always
Busy early evening session pre-theatre last night, both of us enjoyed a reat meal again and the Art's buzz was just rightl. Love the place!
We were a group of colleagues and met for dinner, some of us were running late as travelling from all over, when I rang to change the time, and turned up further late the staff were still lovely and welcoming as they continued to be throughout the evening. The food was lovely and not over priced. All round great and would definitely visit again
Friendly staff, great selection of food and drinks, service was excellent and food cooked perfectly. The menu always has something new and enticing on it. Looking forward to going back!
Our waiter was lovely, the food was inventive and delicious. The only slight comment is that the service was quite slow although I appreciate that it is probably cooked to order
Lovely dining experience, food was amazing, service was impeccable. I would highly recommend.
It was a lovely lunch, my only complaint, which isn't really a complaint, is that it was a bit too chilly to sit by the door in the front section of the cafe. Apart from that lovely!
Always good food
I booked for lunch on Saturday. The two serving staff couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. They were attentive but also allowed us to chat and linger with a glass of wine after our meal. Will definitely return
We had a really lovely meal at Arts, something for everyone on the menu and real gem of a little restaurant.
We had a super evening. From cocktail to our final glass of port our meal was delightful. Next time I’m in Leeds I will definitely return
