    A warm welcome and a gastronomic delight. Everything about the V&V is perfect. The eclectic music playing and the welcoming and friendly staff. Food which delights both the eyes and tastebuds. Satisfying portions, you will not leave feeling hungry. Even the gin and tonic was exceptionally good

    Brilliant. The staff were friendly, the food was incredible (and I guarantee you wouldn't get it anywhere else), and the atmosphrere was comfy. The music was also top notch. Fine dining, with a lovely chilled vibe. Jono was confident, knowledgable and just an all round lovely human. 10/10

    The tasting menu was an array of exciting and interesting courses. Some we felt worked for us better than others however every course is brilliantly thought out and presented. The wine pairing was superb and the service, especially the Sommelier were absolutely brilliant!

    A very intimate and delightfully decorated venue. The music is slightly louder than you'd expect, but it is good as you can have a conversation without being heard or hearing others. Chef Jono and his team have made this place feel very special and welcoming from start to finish. The service is not intrusive, but equally is just the right level of attentive and all the staff are easy to talk to and pleased to be there. It shows in their demeanor which adds to the enjoyment of the evening. The food is sublime and seeing each dish plated up adds to the special evening. Each course really excited our taste buds and made us want to eat as slowly as possible to savour the flavours. The wine pairing was spot on as well, giving a delightful enhancement to the flavours on the plate and being worth the time to enjoy each mouthful. In this menu the trout, scallop and fillet really stood out for me. So different but equally flawless. The mushroom tiramisu! Wow. It caught me out at first, but do take the advice and dive in, it's a taste sensation despite the connotations of mushroom you may think of! A real gem of a place to spend time in. I really liked that Chef Jono also sticks around quietly in the background even after having cleaned down and is willing to chat about the food, how it's made and give time to his patrons despite having been there since early morning. One we will revisit no doubt, and once again kudos to Chef Jono and the team in really nailing it from start to finish. He and his team really will go far.

    Having been avid fans of Jono on Masterchef we were really excited to finally get to V&V and our experience was beyond what we expected. From the moment we arrived the service was fabulous, and the food was even better. Having eaten in many Michelin restaurants our trip to V&V easily matched (and in some cases exceeded) these experiences. We can't wait to go back.

    Massively over priced for food delivered.One course was a corn purée with bacon dust, another was one bulb of cauliflower and one bulb of broccoli with a cheese sauce.£70 pp not including drinks seems way too expensive. Total bill came to £235 inc 3 drinks each and service charge. Have been to man behind the curtain twice and both times spent far less and they had a Michelin star.

    This was our second visit to Vice and Virtue. We had a lunchtime tasting menu the first time last year which was fab, so much so my husband wanted to go back for his birthday this year. It did not disappoint. We had a 7.30pm sitting and the food was amazing which was paired with various wines. We enjoyed every course. We did not feel rushed at all and the entire experience was very relaxing and a wonderful treat. The staff were lovely, friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Vice and Virtue in Leeds and can't wait for a third visit.

    Food was excellent. Whilst attentive, the service was ever so slightly strange, with the waiter talking about himself a lot and the waitress feeling compelled to assure us not to feel intimidated by the amount of cutlery. The food more than made up for it though.

    This was our first visit on recommendation - and what a great experience. We had the tasting menu with accompanying wines which were a perfect compliment to each course. The quality of the food, the presentation and the service were first class. I have reached the conclusion that I have not enjoyed dinner out as much as this visit. If you want vegetarian let them know with your booking. The whole evening was flawless pleasure from start to finish. We will be back.

    It was a fantastic experience. Jerome made us feel welcome and it was really amazing to have him serving us that night. He has great knowledge About food and wine and Of course,passion for customer service. Our favourite dish of the tasting menu was the cod (I would happily pay £70 just for that dish!) Followed by the chicken liver parfait. Both dishes were really outstanding. The lamb was disappointing, unfortunately. Our pieces of lamb were both fatty and quite hard to chew. After such a fantastic experience with the cod, I felt the lamb was a real let down. But the whole meal was lovely, the wine pairing was absolutely spot on and we loved the evening. Just a detail, maybe the courses should be a bit more paced so people can finish the wines and enjoy the experience. I didn’t feel the meal was rushed but we had fine dinning meals before and they we more paced, leaving time for us to finish our drinks before the next one. Overall, a fantastic experience. I do recommend it!
