Called in Sunday evening, two customers and six staff?? If it opened in December then why no reviews under its own name atlas, does it not have its own trip-advisor, called on after being in slug and lettuce, place was rammed. Atlas needs to up its game if it wants to survive in a very competitive market in Leeds.

Yes, I like the food. Yes, I like the drinks. But one thing I don't like is that every time I visit here, I get served by a male. Numerous time's the girls have been stood chatting or even stood on their phone. I can see that the male's work 10x harder than the females. Poor lads. This may be... More

Had an amazing risotto for starter, followed by a Venison burger. Our waiter was absolutely fantastic too. Would definitely go again. The restaurant went into refurbishment a few months after my visit and am really looking forward to it opening up again.

With my friends as a regular restaurant visiting group we found this was perhaps the best cooked food in Leeds and we thought it was great value for the quality. So its a great pity we found it had closed in February 2013 with a notice in the window saying it was being refurbished. I do hope it can return... More

Highly recommended the food is simply stunning excellent flavour and interesting ingredients presented in an artistic way... With such a good cause behind the company it reAly does serve up value for money... All round an excellent experience and some of the best food I've eaten in leeds... Warning though leave room for pudding otherwise you'll be left disappointed!!

Enjoyed the very good food but it is very open plan and the room was cold. Service was fine but the place and the staff lacked any sense of occasion.
