Lovely early dinner. The restaurant was quiet and the service was great. Low music playing in the background is nice and relaxing. The starter and main courses were excellent and I would definitely recommend trying their specials. The smoked mash is lush! Booked dinner here for my partner's birthday and he lived it.

Super impressed with this place. This was our second visit and I was just as impressed as the first. Menu, service and ambience all on point. The food is simply fantastic - a well thought through, seasonal menu and the waiting staff know it inside-out. Can't decide? Just ask - they'll happily talk you through a dish or make recommendations. Great wine selection, and craft ales available from the adjoining beer hall. Looking forward to our next visit!

Decent food, service was very slow and we always had to ask for something rather than being offered which was disappointing but they were busy.

An Interesting varied menu including creative plant based options which ensures all are comfortable and can perhaps experiment. An array of desserts that were actually worth sampling rather than an afterthought. The service was friendly and informative. Generous space so no sense of being crammed in and having to share intimate conversations!

The atmosphere and service were very friendly. Everyone was lovely and it's a really nice space. Unlike most restaurants, the waiters never pop by to ask you how things are. Normally that would be a plus, but this is the one time when I wish they would have.

Unfortunately, most of the dishes we got were disappointing. They were well-cooked and nicely presented, but the flavours were all over the place. Lamb sweetbreads with peas francaise and nduja was completely overwhelmed by the chili from the nduja. A main of guinea fowl was oddly flavourless with mushy leeks and a bland "tonkotsu" sauce, which lacked all the unctuous and salty goodness of it's namesake ramen broth.

Worst of all were the desserts. My cheesecake was fluffy but a little light on sweetness and overall flavour, probably meant to be brought to life with it's accompanying sherry vinegar syrup and grilled peach. Sadly, the syrup was face-puckeringly sour. It didn't have the sweet tartness I'd expect from a well balanced sweet vinegar syrup, instead it was just like pure vinegar. The peach had a little underlying sweetness but it seemed to be drenched in the same vinegar.

My partner's rice pudding was texturally interested, with a nice crunchy/smooth dichotomy but just kind of boringly savoury.

It's a real shame - there's obvious ambition on show, but the execution just falls flat on it's face. I really wanted to like Ox Club, but I doubt we'd return.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. Inventive, good cooking which - for the quality of the ingredients - is good value for money. The chefs and staff are really good. I have never had a bad meal there, or even a duff dish there, not once, and I have visited a lot.

I’m being picky here because overall we had a great meal.

The food was excellent but the porterhouse steak was not quite as tender as it could have been. Everything else was excellent, particularly the steak tartare and roasted cauliflower.

The Hungarian wine was the surprise of the night, we’ll balanced and very drinkable.

The room is lovely with a welcoming buzz, even for an early dinner.

One of the servers was great, the other was lovely but didn’t really know anything about the menu of the drinks options.

Beautiful experience from start to finish. The staff were friendly, very well informed ans perfectly attentive.
The food couldn’t be faulted, everything was cooked to perfection. The most that I have enjoyed a meal in Leeds for a long time. I can’t believe this was my first visit. I’ll certainly be back. Thank you for a lovely evening.

A very relaxed, friendly night out. I opted to share the pork shoulder chop and it was absolutely stunning. My starter of sea bass cerviche was equally good but I can’t comment on pudding because by now I was too full to have one.

Bouncer outside was a bit scary and interrogated my 16 year old brother - he was just going out for tea!

We had a lovely evening. The menu had a great choice and the food was delicious. The staff went above and beyond to ensure the experience was a good one. The only thing we said was that it was a shame the restaurant didn’t have its own toilet. This may sound silly however my friend commented on the fact that she had to fight through a group of drunken girls and the toilets were a bit gross! Apart from that, 10/10!

Had a great time, lovely atmosphere, food thought to be exquisite turned out to be just good, dressings a bit too vinegary, duck a tad overcooked, cheesecake alright with again-too vinegary coulis/sauce, mash was amazing and wine was great! Having to leave the restaurant to use a restroom was a bit of a nuisance though. We have been to many places in the UK places and around the world where you would get top quality for less $. Still waiting to find the one to top our Portuguese favourite, unfortunately Ox Club didn’t succeed on this occasion.
Ps. Service was lovely!

The Ox Club is a relaxed & stylish restaurant which knows what it’s good at. The food is authentic & considered with each dish having a story to tell. Ditch the chains, skip lunch & enjoy an evening of great food, cooked in an open kitchen, served by a front of house team who have clearly sampled the lot! Enjoy!

Ox Club consistently delivers some of the best cooking in Leeds and is much more reasonably priced than comparable restaurants. Their fish cooking is bang on, the chefs have serious skills and their work is full of flavour and completely unfussy. The produce they use is tip top and the atmosphere is always good, the staff know about and care about the quality of the food and they are, put simply, nice people. Have been numerous times and the place never puts a foot wrong. If there are awards to be had these people should get them.
