    Our recent Saturday night visit to Victoria Gastro was very good. The black mission fig appetizer was outstanding and the highlight of our meal. We also had the raw oysters, the black angus burger, and the lemon basil crab cakes. All were very good except the fries that accompanied the burger were too salty. Our waitress was a little slow to deliver and clear items from the table, but otherwise it was an enjoyable dining experience. Reservations are a must as the place was packed by 6:30 P.M.

    My husband and I brought friends from out-of-town here on their last night with us. Victoria is a reliably great place to bring guests. The food is always great, the beer/cocktail menu is impressive, and the service is friendly and unobtrusive. We all enjoyed flights of several Maryland beers and ciders. We love having Victoria is in our neighborhood!

    There were eight of us and everyone was happy with their lunch. Very popular at our table was the lobster grilled cheese sandwich. It really is a winner! Also if you in the mood for a burger they have a really good one here. The Fish and Chips were also enjoyed. Be sure to save room for desserts because they are always delicious. Several us enjoyed the new pumpkin cookies. A visit by the owner to check on us was appreciated. Service is always good here - today was again excellent!

    Caught in traffic, no problem. Loud bar scene but hideaway rooms gave both quiet and family dining special areas. Very versatile. Not an extensive menu but interesting choices. Creative cocktails that packed a punch but did not taste like it. Great home made biscuits! Intriguing special dining events.

    As someone married to an English teacher, I know better than to misuse the word "literally". Well, this was LITERALLY the best burger I've ever had in my life. That is not an exaggeration. Go. Order the burger. Medium rare, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, and their fabulous aoli... It'll be the best decision you make all year. Oh... and stick with the fries as your side. You may as well go all in. They're totally worth it.

My husband loved everything - poutine and the lobster grilled cheese. The décor is nice with several different dining areas.

    Victoria Gastro Pub is not just a dining experience. Which it is. It is an adventure in dining. The food is always so fresh and amazing. The selection is wonderful from the swordfish steaks to the duck fat fries. But the thing that makes it truly memorable, is the gracious and glorious wait staff. They are funny, enlightning, and treat you like family as soon as you are seated at the table. A truly amazing dining experience.

    This was my first time trying their brunch menu during the week. They didn't have many options but they were super accommodating that we had two kids under 4. Their staple lunch menu was awesome though, so you won't be disappointed there. The waiter was patient, attentive and even asked if we had any food allergies or dietary restrictions. So I would totally recommend going here for lunch and dinner. I will have to try their brunch on the weekend one day. Maybe they have a more broad menu then.

    Pleasant experience. Highlights were duck fat fries and the bread. Dinner was good, but I had to fight with the pork chop to cut it. We dined on the early side with our two grade school kids on a Saturday night. It was summer. We sat indoors and I wish I had worn a parka. It was slow. The waiter was decent. My only minor complaints were in a place that attempts to be an upscale pub, the waiter was unfamiliar with the beer list - it is HUGE, but really. Also, the waiter spent a good deal of time flirting with the hostess. I believe this is geared to beer lovers with money to spend on dinner, not me. I am sure that for you enjoy a variety of beer and above average pub fare this is a great place for a week night dinner.

    We went to Victoria's for dinner on a Friday evening. Got there before the 7pm cut-off for happy hour deals, but found out that those only apply to those sitting at the bar, not in the dining area. We were a little disappointed, but the food and service made up for it and we would definitely go there again. The food was amazing!! I had the Madeira pasta (without meat) and it was fantastic. The portion size was perfect, not huge but not skimpy either. My husband had the American dip sandwich and loved it. Our waitress (can't remember who it was unfortunately) was really good, check back with us a bunch and had great suggestions in terms of dishes and beers/wines. Can't wait to go again!

    I went to Victoria a few years ago and was bowled over by the food, service and ambiance. Unfortunately this time, only the ambiance remained stellar. My entree salad was fine but salty. I was seated in a seat that was rather close to a seat at the next table over. Our server brushed, and sometimes bumped, against me throughout the entire meal. She then spilled water on me. This was a business lunch, so really the biggest problem was that, after bringing us the check, our server, despite passing by our table several times, took almost 30 minutes to take our payment. Still love the decor and maybe dinner is still much better.

    This is our second visit to Victoria Gastro Pub. We discovered it by accident. We were in the area running errands and needed to eat. Much to our surprise, we discovered this wonderful restaurant with great food. They have a huge selection of beers and it's listed by country of origin. Their wine list is rather extensive too. If you decide to go, try the poutine. It's decadent and rich and absolutely enjoyable. I had the angus beef burger and it's one one of the best burgers I ever had. It was cooked to perfection and was juicy and tender. VGP will definitely be on our list of go to restaurants.

    I live in Silver Spring but VGP is worth the drive! So far I've been twice, for brunch, but I hope to try dinner soon. The brunch menu is creative and unique, although I wish there were just a couple more options. The adult beverage menu is equally special; I particularly enjoyed the Firefly with Rosemary Wings. I haven't used it yet, but I appreciate the availability of an adults-only dining room.

    We sat on the patio, with a perfect breeze. Started with an orange concoction from the bar that was tasty without being filling. We all had the lump crab johnnycake as a starter. There was one johnnycake, smothered in lump crab cake, drizzled with a blackberry sweet and sour sauce that had some balsamic hiding in it. We practically licked our plates. Our main was a 10oz pork chop that was cooked to perfection. Tender, succulent, and just as good the second day as it was the first. (I love leftovers.) It was garnished with little bits of country ham and had a nice gravy. Potatoes, zucchini, and summer squash cooked perfectly rounded out the meal. Dessert was a Meyer lemon cream tart with berries. I may go back to get the tart again.

    The first thing I zeroed-in on the menu was the duck poutine, the Canadian specialty, but this version was with shredded duck. There were two sizes to choose from, and the small was more than enough for two people. The fries were perfectly crisp and it was so delicious, but I wouldn't have minded more gravy. We also ordered one of the daily specials, which was squash blossoms grown from the owner's garden, fried and stuffed with goat cheese. The tangy taste of goat cheese was divine, but texture was lacking, since I was expecting a more crispy texture. For our entrees, my friend got the swiss mushroom burger and I got the black angus burger. Since we were full from the appetizer, I only had a bite of the burger. The meat was very tasty.

    Good food and an extensive wine and beer list! The server seemed annoyed when we asked questions about the specials when one of our party members had not yet arrived. I get not wanting to repeat it, but she almost had an attitude! Otherwise, the food was delicious with quality ingredients, many of which they grow themselves! It gets very crowded and loud there on a Friday night and parking is a challenge. You MUST have a reservation or you will wait all night! I had a spinach and strawberry salad with goat cheese (awesome) and a drink called Summer Thyme (lemonade with different rums, muddled blackberries and a sprig of thyme) and it was really good. The beer biscuits were good but butter was definetly needed. Will be back soon!
