A great night at Victors
Read mixed reviews on here... But it's Florence and the restaurant selection is kind of lacking. I took my sister and brother in law out for their 2nd wedding anniversary. It's very pretty inside, piano volume was just right. i had a delicious swordfish dinner... It was top of the line. Our waiter Brad was very good, and knowledgeable. My sister told the waiter that another one of the waiters looked like "Joey" from the former boy band "NSYNC"... So the guy cane over and gave my sister a fake autograph... It was great and made her night. Great time. Definitely recommended.

Rare find in a city lacking culture
This is the only restaurant in Florence which has an OpenTable account, so you can understand what we're working with. Victor's is surprisingly affordable for the calibre of cuisine that is produced here. I had the prosciutto wrapped scallops for an app and shrimp and grits for entree with a bourbon as recommended by the waitstaff. All were very delicious. Victor's seems to have a FOH manager who cares about his customers, along with waitstaff who knows the menu. Kudos!

The Best in Florence
My steak was cooked to perfection!! I am particular about my steaks. If you're going to order a steak cooked more than "medium" do yourself a favor and get a hamburger- It's a lot cheaper. Victors does a perfect medium rare steak. Slightly charred around the edges and juicy red in the center, evenly cooked on both sides. The truffled, smashed & fried Yukon gold potatoes are what my dreams are made of. This is my go-to special occasion restaurant. Cannot wait to try it in their new location at Hotel Florence.

Great decor at new location!
The restaurant looks beautiful and the menu stayed great. We will come over frequently!

Great menu. All the food choices that we had were delicious; Salmon was cooked to perfection.

Excellent French/Continental fare with some local dishes (shrimp w grits) in a great atmosphere . Somewhat noisy, but allows for unrestrained conversation - everybody talking/having good time.

Great for date night
My husband & I ate at Victors for a date night before Fathers Day.
Our service was great. There were a few minor issues with food but staff were attentive

A birthday celebration at the new location. I always enjoyed Victor's in its original location and was anxious to see if everything carried over to the move downtown. I am happy to report that it has! Food was superb, service was impeccable and decor was quite striking. Noise level was a bit high for my liking, but not unbearable. My date had the half chicken in lemon sauce and said it was wonderful. Our server told us Friday was prime rib night, so I jumped on that. Really worth it! Cooked exactly right and served with horseradish sauce that was a wonderful complement. Grilled asparagus for both of us, and very tasty. The Grand Marnier cheesecake for dessert was the perfect ending. No doubt I will return.

Great feeling, the minute you walk in the door. The food and presentation were excellent, both for lunch and dinner.

First time customer
My service was great, first class, A1. The atmosphere was wonderful, clean and quiet. The food was satisfactory. The prime rib was a little over cooked for medium also, the potatoes were a little greasy. The asparagus were very tiny and didn't have much taste.
I am not saying that the food was uneatable but, for the price I expected the food to be excellent. I would say it was average.

Business Lunch a Hit !
We enjoyed having our business lunch at Victor's in Hotel Florence ... Our colleague from Savannah was so impressed with the food and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere !

I you sure this is in Florence?
What a find in a most unexpected part of town. The neighborhood id deserted, but this place was packed. Had an enjoyable meal with terrific service.

Wanted a romantic birthday dinner with my wife but got stuck in the middle of ladies night. The food was good but just shy of what I'd call fine dinning. The loud dinning room made it difficult to have conversation.

I really enjoyed the food.
I really enjoyed the food. Everyone at my table had the petitie filet. It was one of the very best I have ever had at a restaurant. My husband and I shared the banana cheesecake with praline crust and it was awesome. During dinner the piano was playing and the restaurant was full of activity. It was a little difficult to carry on a conversation due to the noise level during certain times of the evening.

french with fusion from other cooking styles. Go with group and try different appetizers. If you don't see it on menu, just ask for it. Pork chop was cooked perfectly and was marinated with a mild-hot taste.

Gem in the heart of Florence
We celebrated our Anniversary at Victor's and it wonderful eating freshly prepared food for a change. The bacon jam was a perfect compliment to the entrees and the Kahlua Chocolate Cake was a great way to finish the meal. We will return.

My husband and I were traveling home to Florida by car from NY with the intent of an overnight stay I Florence. We booked a room in the hotel and made dinner reservations for 9....however due to heavy traffic we arrived at 10:30 and expected to scrounge for late night takeout pizza. The restaurant staff happily accommodated us. The meal was outstanding and the service impeccable. After a delicious meal and bottle of fine Pinot Noir, we retired upstairs to a lovely room for a good nights rest. Breakfast the next morning was of equal caliber in terms of the quality of food and warm service.
We plan on making this "our place" each and every time we travel to and from NY.

Lunch at the bar... Very cool vibe!
Victor's has always been a cool place to go... Atmosphere you can not find any where else in Florence. This visit, sat at the bar for lunch. We loved it! Service is consistently adequate but rarely outstanding... Although, one very young man does stand out on a previous visit... I hate I don't remember his name! This visit however was the norm... Just adequate. And the most important part of a restaurant, the food... Two of us shared appetizers on this visit and it was good but not flipping great. Out of all my visits to Victor's, Sunday Brunch and Breakfast stands out above all the other menus... Bacon to die for and perfectly cooked Eggs Benedict. Absolutely awesome!

This is a great place to go for a date night with your special someone. Use the "other" section on OpenTable and they will have what you ask for waiting on the table as requested. The new location is very pretty and the ambiance is spectacular. You do not feel as though you are in downtown Florence when eating here.

Delicious food, lovely atmosphere!
We came as a group celebrating 2 birthdays. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and we all look forward to attending for our next special occasion. I had the shrimp and pasta salad with fruit and Benton's delicious muffins. It was delicious! We all enjoyed the broccoli cornbread as well.

After hearing acquaintances talk about Victor's I was sold on giving it a try. My husband is a creature of habit so getting him to try something new was a task. But, I must say, after our dinner on Saturday, he is ready to visit Victor's again. We celebrated our 14th Wedding Anniversary at Victor's and we will be certainly be back and SOON!

I have eaten in 38 countries of the world and I would put Victors in my top 5 restaurant for the wonderful experience of eating there. The food was absolutely awesome. The service was the best I can ever remember of anywhere I have eaten

Best restaurant in Florence area!
I started going to victors a few years ago when they were still located on Irby Street. Loved them then! The menu and new location is even better! It's so nice to have a place to go that is classy and relaxing! Great date night place!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Finally Florence has a sophisticated, hip place to dine for any occasion, with great food and service.

Making up for the last visit
I first visited Victor's back in June and the service and food were not worthy of the reviews I had seen previous. This visit was definitely a great one and I hope to return to Victor's very soon. My out of town guests requested to return as well. Thank you!

We made the reservation for
We made the reservation for lunch on Open Table, not knowing anything about the restaurant. We were so pleasantly surprised! Victor's Bistro is the restaurant in a lovely hotel. The decoration is super: very inviting and warm. The menu had good diversity and the service was friendly and efficient. We had the French onion and the she crab soups. They were very good, especially the latter. Then we had sandwiches: chicken salad and turkey club. Both were excellent.We really enjoyed the experience. We can recommend Victor's Bistro and hope to return when we are next in the area.

Victor's has really stepped it up with this new location. We liked the old Victor's but the new decor and menu are really amazing. Our service was excellent as well.

Best brunch in town!
My mom and I went here for brunch on a Sunday and so glad we did! The service, food and ambience was wonderful! They give you biscuits and muffins and their portions are huge for very little money! I live in Charleston so I'm always eating brunch at well known places and I wish Victors was in Charleston! I will be back the time I'm in Florence!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brad, our Server, did a fantastic job. He was informative, attentive and really seemed to enjoy working at Victor's. We will return and will recommend to our friends.

Downtown Florence gem
We went while visiting our daughter at Coker College. My wife, daughter and I loved it. We ate the cowboy ribeye and the pork chop entrees. The meats were cooked to perfection and the local collards, asparagus, and plantation rice sides were delicious. Our service was attentive.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall, Victor's is a treat!
The staff was very friendly, as well as, being very accommodating and they have the best cheesecake in town!

Great place to dine, great food choices, reasonable price.
Great for a romantic night out.

Best lunch a few miles off I 95
We needed lunch on our way to Charleston and found a great local restaurant. The waiter and Vic made sure we were taken care of and our experience was excellent. The downtown area of Florence has seen better days but, the hotel is mid block and the restaurant is just inside towards the back and worth the trip! Parking is easy as many of the shops around the hotel/restaurant are out of business. We chose quiche but, a burger or sandwich looked good too.

Great first visit to Victor's
Ate at Victor's the Friday evening after Thanksgiving with a visiting relative. It was the best dining experience we have had in a very long time. Filet was extremely tender and cooked exactly as ordered. Food was perfectly seasoned and delivered to the table in a timely manner. Can't wait for our next visit!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was really amazing for brunch. The granola is exceptional. The staff were accommodating and friendly. The atmosphere is sheik and classy. LOVED!
