A word from Vic's
In October 2014, partners Victoria Freeman, Marc Meyer and Chris Paraskevaides (Cookshop, Hundred Acres) introduce diners to Vic's on Great Jones Street in NoHo. Vic's resides in the re-imagined former space of Five Points, the Mediterranean restaurant that Freeman, Meyer and Paraskevaides opened together in 1999. After 15 years, the restaurateurs decided to renovate the space and the result--Vic's--is an entirely new establishment. Chef Hillary Sterling (A Voce, Lupa) presides over Vic's locally sourced Italian-Mediterranean dishes, including house made pastas and pizzas (made with New York State flour) and market-driven plates of antipasti and entrées. Vic's is open 7-days a week for dinner from 5:30-midnight.Continued

- inventive menuwillardDined on 11/24/2014such good food, great spirit; amusing wine commentary applied to a good & reasonable list. only wish is please oh please lower the music. sound level lively enough which builds to LOUD as evening progresses. shouting while eating is a bore.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- JohnVIPDined on 11/23/2014At least for white wine, a very weird wine list. Tasted the wine from Slovenia. Not at all interesting. Did not try the wine from Georgia. Had the Saumur which lacked freshness and was very dark.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 11/23/2014Food was just not on par. Apps were decent but pastas were terrible. Won't come back
- Vic'sOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/23/2014So good my husband went the next evening with a friend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Find Near Public TheaterMargieBVIPDined on 11/23/2014Vic's, which is owned by the former owners of and replaced Five Points, is a wonderful addition to the dining choices in the area. Service is very attentive, food is of high quality and the room is large so that the noise level is reasonable. Good selection of beers on tap and nearness to both the Public Theater, NYTW and Soho Rep are other reasons we will return to Vic's whenever we're in the neighborhood.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- WVFoodieWVFoodieVIPDined on 11/21/2014My husband & I had a wonderful time on Friday night at Vic's. The three dishes we picked were phenomenal (Pizza, Handbag pasta, & the oxtail). From start to finish, everything about your dining experience was perfect. Jio, our server, was extremely knowledgeable & attentive to our needs & time constraint (as we had an event to go to). The servers and bussers came by timely to clean our area. All in all, one of the best dining experiences we have had in a long time & we will be back. The host that night (a very nice gentleman) was also very kind & gave us a great table! We will be back to explore the rest of the menu!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PennsylvaniaDined on 11/21/2014We were there on Friday for lunch. The service was very nice and the food was delicious. It would have been nice to have bread on the table.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Missing 5 Points!FullPermissionLivingDined on 11/18/20145 Points, formerly in this location, was one of our favorite lower Manhattan restaurants. Vic's does not do its predecessor justice. Looks like they spent too much money on a sterile renovation, and scrimped on the menu, chef and wait staff. Decent fare, but 5 Points used to be stellar.
- Simply put -- a great reataurantDeadlyDragonDined on 11/15/2014Vic's is one of those great spots that is great for whatever you would like it to be. On the one hand, it could be a romantic spot for a date with luxurious food, great wines and intimate service; on the other hand, the restaurant is casual and human enough to be able to go with kids -- both hip and familiar at the same time. The food sticks to a high standard of regional Italian favorites -- crisp, light and pungent pizzas; toothsome pastas, a ridiculously tender pork shoulder, mustardy roast chicken with incredible brussell sprouts that made me re-think my dislike FOR brussel sprouts. Deserts are great, but maybe a little limited -- wish they had a selection of sorbet or ice cream! Otherwise a completely perfect spot!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PeanutVIPDined on 11/12/2014Our service was very accommodating - even honoring a special request. The menu was intriguing. Can't wait to go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great New Old PlacesusanDined on 11/8/2014Vic's, the restaurant housed in the same place and owned by the same owners as Five Points, is fabulous in every way. I loved the original and now am in love again with this snazzy space and it's exciting menu. Everything I ate was executed perfectly, with flavors that were both sophisticated and simple.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Slippery TabletopsBrestoredDined on 11/8/2014Our party of 6 was seated in the stark, white back dining room of the restaurant, a very different atmosphere from the modern yet cozy front room. The main difference was lighting and decor. The back room's round, white, pie piece tables made of the same plastic as outdoor patio furniture were so slippery that utensils and glasses slid off of their own volition. I had to hold my husbands plate to stabilize it as he cut his steak to ensure it would not fall in his lap. We mentioned the phenomenon to the waiter and busboys who all seemed quite aware of the precarious issue. Why not put down place matts? Better to change the "look" of the tables than alter the clothes of the patrons with spilt plates of food and expensive red wine...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Need to get it togetherMackeyVIPDined on 11/6/2014Casual nice environment, salad delicious, but heavy-handed entrees that don't come with veggies, grains or such. Unfortunately, the three side dishes offered were not that great. Vic's tries to please but somehow misses.
- Great new findDowntowngirlVIPDined on 11/5/2014Love the change simple but fresh and new. Great new food menu .Special Features:
- Five Points ReplacementRSMMathewsVIPDined on 10/30/2014Vic's is in the old Five Points location. Its very moderately priced menu is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Wish I could say the same for the wine prices which are not. I went specifically for the pizza which was a mistake. Having just had the most spectacular pizza ever at Marta, Vic's was truly a disappointment. It's thin crust suffered from too much topping which made the middle a sodden mass. However, the Burrata with Mushrooms was very good and the Rye Flour Pasta entree with Lamb was hearty and earthy. Altogether worth a visit but I do hope they fix the pizza.
- Pretty goodHobo636Dined on 10/29/20142 of us did a casual date night dinner on a Wednesday in late October. The hostess and server were professional, friendly and appropriately casual. The menu was diverse and interesting without being over engineered. Price points seemed about right except for the wine list. Although a trend in Manhattan lately, gouging on prices for wine by the bottle is customer unfriendly. The little neck clams and tortellini were very good. We also had a pork entree which was tasty and tender but a little salty for us. We tried a pizza which was ok but was our least faborite and could have used some more thought and crispness. We had a simple $62 Rioja. We did not try dessert I would return.Special Features:
- acousticsDined on 10/29/2014I loved Five Points and miss the ambiance and the ability to find a quiet corner! The food was fabulous, but the noise level is so over the top. There is nothing to absorb the volume. It is unfortunate, because the food was so good.
- Sad to see it in this reincarnationOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 10/29/2014Food was expensive for the portions size , floor and walls contributed to high noise level and service did not match Five Points' friendly atmosphere.
- vicsxxxxDined on 10/27/2014restaurant recently opened. very friendly service. design open. good views. tables well spaced for comfort and conversation. very good foodSpecial Features:
- New Kid on the BlockMargieBVIPDined on 10/27/2014Vic's, which recently opened on Great Jones Street replacing 5 Points, has the same ownership and a slightly different slant on the menu. Featured are excellent pizzas with inventive toppings, pastas, a variety of vegetable-based appetizers and a several entrees. There are beers on tap, a long, welcoming bar at the entrance and numerous extremely helpful servers. Convenient to the Public Theater, Vic's is a good choice for a quick meal or more leisurely dining.Special Features:
- AWESOME PLACE!RemyDined on 10/26/2014This place nailed it. Friendly service from the moment we walked in. We had some great cocktails, I suggest the spiked plum drink. Food is relatively inexpensive for the portion sizes. Had a great time sitting in one of their wooden bench type booths. Cool scene, amazing pastas, and delicious selections of wines to go with it. Finished our meal with some grappa I had never heard of too. Will return!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Unappealing menuOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 10/25/2014Besides the varieties of pizzas, the menu is rather off-putting - ox tail for a main course - really? Then, the pizza isn't all that spectacular.
- DisappointingCandFVIPDined on 10/24/2014Was very excited about this place opening up. Sad to say that it was mediocre at best. Pastas were overly salty, pizzas were caked with flour. White wine we were served was room temperature.Special Features:
- DisappointedNynyerDined on 10/24/2014Five Points was one of my favorite restaurants, and it is disappointing that it has been replaced by this rather ordinary place. The food was good, not inspired. Our waiter was nice but clueless. They charged $3 for a few pieces of bread and a dip that should have been complimentary. Little things like that - nothing to nosh on while waiting for your order, no tablecloths on ugly tables, having to ask for our wine to be kept chilled instead of just left in the table, took away from the experience, but it was more than that - the place is just ordinary, whereas Five Points was something really special. It's unfortunate for Vic's that it will be compared to Five Points because of its location, but it will, and it doesn't measure up.
