    Enjoyed the signature tasting menu with a friend on April 11th. Pro’s- Food was of a very high standard. The chef is very talented & it was amazingly presented, the space is intimately small & for fans of chef Jono you can see him working in the kitchen from your seat. Cons- music is both too loud & does not fit with the fine dining atmosphere. Our server advised it is an eclectic mix of the chefs musical taste, but as a customer it feels random rather than curated to suit the space. Main issue was that there seemed to be so much tension between the staff that it was quite distracting. Staff were all very professional when serving us, but the vibe between the staff & the chef & each other as they moved around the restaurant didn’t give the impression of a positive working relationship. A couple of times we noticed what appeared to be discreet disagreements being had, which in such a small space isn’t possible not to notice. Overall it was enjoyable, but for the price there is better & more relaxed options in Leeds to get the tasting menu experience.

    The food was well cooked and great value and we received great service, although I was waiting to order a drink for a while. The only letdown was the heavy use of truffles, I’m not a fan so the smell and taste was overwhelming.

    The most amazing meal and drinks pairing. Truly unique concepts for dishes that surprised us with every course. We felt it was really good value for what you got. The atmosphere was understated, relaxed and calming. The staff were attentive to our needs and friendly, without being imposing or pretentious. We can't wait to come back!

    Fabulous evening. The service and food was impeccable. The sound track was up beat and equally enjoyable. We will definitely be returning.

    Really had no idea what to expect as was unaware of the restaurant. We only chose to go as had been bought a gift voucher which needed using. On arrival we climbed a steep staircase up to the 2nd floor of a rather uninspiring building in the north part of the city centre. It felt rather unwelcoming at first. I have to say I just could not get over how bland, cold and cheap the interior felt. I had my back to the kitchen and in front of me I had the view of an empty drink fridge, and what I can only describe as an old office door with striped privacy glass which was crowned with a cream dated air con unit. It felt like a cross between an old strip club and an old office. Totally lacklustre and underwhelming. The bar was dark and had no back light. Almost looked like it was closed. To top It off the music system was awful. Really Cheap sound system with such bad volume and balance I could barely hear the soft quiet voice of the gent trying to describe our wine pairing. The music choice was bizarre and not very fitting eg rod Stewart and other old 80/90s ballads. When we were seated we were given the signature menu and wine list. I was annoyed that they withheld the 5 course menu option and I had to ask for this. This felt stealth and sneaky. Overall. The food was delicious and I can’t fault this. The drinks were also lovely. The cutlery felt cheap and too light weight but the plates/ bowls were really cool. The cheese board was amazing and very highly recommended. Definitely a two person board. I work in hospitality and it had lots of ticks,but for me I personally would not return or recommend purely due to the fact the ambience and decor was nowhere near the expected standard. If this were changed and improved it could be far more recommendable.

    The restaurant is beautifully hidden away and the location makes you forget you're in Leeds. There are a lot of stairs up though and I'm not sure if this is made clear at booking as many people may not be able to manage. The food was fantastic and the staff cannot do enough for you. When we walked in, Chef Jono was at the counter at the kitchen and gave us a smile which was lovely. Fantastic explanations from all staff and the food and drink are works of art and very delicious. The only reason I didn't give 5 star is it is very expensive. I imagine this reflects the quality ingredients and work gone into making these dishes, so I understand it. But I think the menus on the website should be clearly marked saying "only menu served on x, y, z" because I didn't realise I would only be able to get the more expensive menu. I also think the service charge should be marked on the menu. I always leave a tip for excellent service but don't think it approproate to be told how much to give. But overall I would happily go again because the food is really exceptional, like nothing I have ever eaten, the staff are knowledgeable and Jono is friendly and signs menus for special occasions. Fantastic experience. A gem hidden away in the centre of Leeds.
