  • "The scenic view is why you make reservations at Vic's. If you ask your server nicely they'll take your picture on the balcony outside overlooking River St. The crab cakes are delicious! I wish I would have ordered the full meal rather than only the appetizer portion. Our server was very personable. Overall, the scenic view is why you make reservations at Vic's. If it is your first time in Savannah, I recommend trying Vic's on the River."

  • "My Husband and I were celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary. We had made reservations and the Hostess was very accommodating and sat us at a romantic table with a river view. The fried green tomatoes, scallops, and clams were amazing!! The service was very attentive and prompt. The only down side, there was a table next to us and one child kept getting up and down to go stand and look out our window. I know that's a parental control issue and not your fault. Other than that, we enjoyed our visit and will look forward to dining with you in the future."

  • "I've been working in hospitality as a Guest Service Representative and Concierge for two years and every guest I have sent to Vic's has LOVED their experiences. It warms my heart that Vic's treats my guests so well and gives them a meal they won't easily forget. :)"

  • "My son, his wife and I went to the restaurant Vic's on the River in Savannah, what a terrible mistake and horrible experience: everything was cold, the shrimps were unveined, the chicken had no flavor, the mash potatoes was something gray with no flavor, as well as the rest of the dishes. We asked for the manager and a gentleman came and after hear our complain just made a face and disappear, then the waiter a funny guy but not well trained told us that we will have a 20% discount in the bill what was not what we were expecting particularly cause the night before we had a great dinner at Local 1110 where including tips (I tipped the nice waitress and the chef) we spent near $ 500.00. A tourist place not interested in service and good food."

  • "Made a reservation on open table and noted it was for our 23rd anniversary and restaurant gave us a nice table with view of the river and a beautiful complimentary desert decorated with "Happy Anniversary" on the plate. The food and service we're both excellent and they made us feel special. The piano jazz singer Dianne was also great and provided a nice ambiance. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a romantic dinner and excellent southern gourmet seafood dinner."

  • "We were looking for a place to try some Savannah seafood and Vic's fit the bill. Everything we tried was good and some dishes rose to excellent. The crab cakes are really amazing as were the scallops. I highly recommend Vic's for a great dinner right on the river."

  • "Vic's was hands down the best meal we had in Savannah. The atmosphere with the beautiful view of the river ( request a view when you make reservations) the yummy food and the excellent service make it the perfect place to relax and enjoy a night out. The shrimp and grits were sooooo good! This is where we will dine whenever we visit savannah!"

  • "First night in Savannah. Nice dinner, our waiter was great. We enjoyed and had fun along with the table beside ours and yet he was very professional and responsive to our needs. We enjoy fine dining but it doesn't have to be stuffy!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We made reservations, were seated immediately. It was very busy and noisy, not quite what i was expecting... thought it would be more of a quiet, romantic setting. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable about menu items. Food was very good. The server asked if we were celebrating anything, it was our anniversary, and he brought us out a small complimentary dessert that was beautiful and delicious."

  • "A friend said it was their favorite place and recommended. She was right on, great martinis, great scallops with risotto. All around the best dinner we have had in months."

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Our waiter was spectacular. Granddaughter needed gluten free and he facilitated that perfectly. Our table was very nice with water view as requested. However, the rib eye steak was unacceptable. Should have sent both meals back just a bad cut of meat. To avoid our guests being inconvenienced, we did not ask for an exchange. The lump crab meat was excellent as was the kale salad."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food was good, although nothing particularly special. Menu was on par with just about every other restaurant in Savannah. First seated inside, where you feel right on top of other diners but somehow extremely far away from the rest of your party. After ordering drinks we asked to be moved outside, which was much more calm and felt much more intimate. Would not dine their again if I was to be seated inside, would do so sitting outside, but would not go out of the way for it."

  • "the menu is very diverse, the food very tasty, I had the flounder which was cooked to perfection. It is a very spacious and elegant space which offers few tables by the window, with a very nice bar area where you can eat as well."

  • "Another great meal celebrating an early Father's Day! Had the meatloaf & it was delicious. My son had the crab salad, it was good but a little too light on the serving of crab...he was left craving more!! My husband had steak so he was happy! Took the praline cheesecake to go...my favorite dessert in Savannah & I tell everyone about it!!! As usual, we will be back!!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Booked thru open table, under "special requests" I mentioned this was our anniversary. From begining to end we were treated wonderfully. Food was perfect; staff very attentive; atmosphere was devine! Checked out all meals brought to my area & I didn't see a bad dish; everything looked supurb. Manager came over and wished us a happy anniversary and spent 10 minutes talking and telling us about the dishes. We'll go back"

  • "Service was awesome. Our waiter was great and he was very attentive. Unfortunately, our food was terrible. We would not go back to this restaurant."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to eat here for our four year anniversary and literally everything was PERFECT! We were sat at a romantic stop by the window, our waiter was timely, and after our amazing dinner they had specially made a dessert in honor of our anniversary! I will definitely be coming back this place was perfect!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Overall a nice experience. But at this price level, I expect a little more attention to detail. Like cooking a steak correctly and knowing that the risotto was not edible. So drinks, service and atmosphere great. Food just ok."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Having enjoyed numerous delicious meals here in the past, we were anticipating another enjoyable dining experience. Boy, were we disappointed!!! The menu no longer included the delicious cut of filet mignon we had before, substituting a "filet of ribeye" & New York Strip. Both of these lacked the flavor & tenderness of the filet of the past. Also, they were extremely salty. The sautéed spinach side was too salty to eat. The wedge salad was room temperature & bitter. Needless to say, we won't be coming back to Vic's until we see an improvement in menu choices & more positive reviews."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Unfortunately, we picked this restaurant for an anniversary dinner after reading rave reviews. I didn't remember any mention of the noise level in the past reviews. We were first seated in the bar/lounge. The noise was comparable to a raucous sporting event! We asked to be moved and were accommodated. Unfortunately the dining room was no quieter. The food was ok but everything was a disappointment due to the noise and our inability to converse without shouting. We had lunch in The Old Pink House and that would have been a better choice for dinner. We will not go back to Vic's nor recommend it. VERY DISAPPOINTING !"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "It was just OK We got stuck at a table behind the plants even though better tables were available' Service was good. Food OK"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "This place if very nice, however very busy. I tried the fried tomaties and afterwards I had the scallops on a bed of risotto. Very nice dish but the latter was quite heavy to digest. The only negative point on this restaurant is the noise level. After 15 minutes it gave me a terrible headache. The owners of the place might want to look at improving acoustics...But other than that, great food, great service, very nice place!"

  • "We arrived early for our reservation, and checked in just in case they could seat us early. From the minute we walked in, the harried hostess let us know they were doing us a favor to be in existence. Very snobby greeting. Fortunately, the waiters were much friendlier. We each had a salad and shared an entree, which they graciously split for us. My husband also had a bowl of soup and two drinks. All of that was almost $70, so it was still pricey."

  • "The food was excellent, wine list was very large, waitstaff extremely courteous. The staff made special efforts to accommodate our party by seating us near a window with a great view. The restaurant provided a special dessert in honor of our son's 1st week anniversary and our 30th anniversary."

  • "I let Vic's know when I made the reservation that it was our 25th wedding anniversary and asked for a window table overlooking the river. They did not disappoint. We could watch boat traffic on the river and stepped out onto a balcony next to our table to take pictures. My husband had the pork chop. He said it had a little more breading than he liked but the chop was outstanding. I had the scallops. They were to die for however they were served over grits which weren't bad just not my favorite. Our server, who was very attentive but not overly,brought us what might have been a flourless chocolate dessert on the house. The two of us couldn't finish it. It was a lovely evening and Savannah is a lovely city."
