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.

DELICIOUS! such unusual dishes, we enjoyed every single one - especially the lemon and olive dessert, absolutely blown away. Fantastic service from the waiter Jerome, so knowlegable and attentive. It was a perfect evening to celebrate a 30ths birthday. Highly recommend

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.

Great food and great service. Clearly a lot of thought and effort goes into each dish and wine pairing & fabulous presentation. it’s not cheap but perfect place for a treat.
Will definitely go back when the next menu arrives!

Very disappointed from the start. Strange entrance up many stairs and then underseasoned good nearly every course. Nowhere near worth £70 per head excluding drinks.

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.

A little bit of luxurious calm in the Covid storm. We went for our 2nd wedding anniversary and felt so spoiled. We were treated like kings- the service was impeccable and we will definitely be recommending to friends and family. Thank you for a lovely evening.

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!

We could not fault the appearance and taste of the food. The staff were very polite and informative. The only reason my mark is a little lower on ambiance is due to the reduced table capacity for social distancing, so this is something which is out of the restaurants control just now. Would highlyrecommend as a special occasion venue.

Gorgeous food, albeit expensive.
Good service but felt a little rushed as we had the7 taster menu.
Generous portions & the wine list was good, with well informed staff.
Jerome in the cocktail bar was great- perfect G&T
Quiet for a Saturday night.

This was our first time here - whilst so we decided to go the whole hog and have the 10 courses and the premium wine so £170 each. The food was OK nothing bad but nothing outstanding. The wine pairings didn't represent value for money. NV Taittinger, petit Chablis, Godello, etc - very average version of the style and pretty small glasses too.

Service was OK not sure the setting is particularly appropriate - with service charge £400 for two people is a lot of money for what we got

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Vice & Virtue. We had the 7 course tasting menu & the food was amazing. The staff were very attentive & knowledgeable aswell. The bar downstairs has a nice vibe & the cocktails are great. Whilst we agree with some previous reviews that the decor in the restaurant upstairs is a little ‘basic’ and minimalist, we didn’t think it affected anything about our experience and the atmosphere was relaxed, less pretentious than other similar restaurants & therefore very enjoyable. Thankyou!

First visit here over the weekend and all I can say is WOW! The food was superb - things I wouldn’t normally even like tasted delicious. For a special occasion or something a little bit different I’d definitely recommend Vice & Virtue. Not the cheapest meal but you can see where the money goes and it was worth it for the whole experience of the evening.

A bit disappointing based on it's reputation, the food was nice but definitely not special.
We had the Veggie tasting menu so maybe their meat dishes are better.
