The waiter was extremely attentive. The only minus was the wait for the food but when food is being freshly prepared that is to be expected. I will recommend Victor's to my friends.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing staff!!I had a wonderful experience at Victor's Cafe!! My twin sister and I were celebrating our 21st birthday here and I could NOT have picked a better place to hold my dinner! The food was AMAZING (the black beans and the appetizers were delectable) I had the Lechón asado (roast pig) and it was so tender and juicy that I only wish they had
given me a bigger portion. The ambiance of the restaurant was very vibrant and lively, however
I was under the impression that they had live entertainment, but they didn't. I was extremely satisfied with the way the wait staff treated me and my 15 guests... they were so attentive and dedicated! I will definitely be recommending this restaurant to friends for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to returnI made reservations for Mother's Day. We made reservations for 8:15. We arrived about 7:45. When Ed arrived, ad waited about 5 minutes and our table was ready. As soon as we were seated, we were immediately served water and delicious fried banana slices. The menu had both a special and the regular menu.
The food was amazing. The restaurant provided a decent amount of times between appetizers and entree, as well as desert. The drinks were delicious high recommend the sangria and the classic mojitos.
I cannot wait to return. Any of the dishes are spectacular. Delicious!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVictor's Never DisappointsThis is my second visit to Victor's Cafe and it was once again, PERFECT!

Tried the Taste of Cuba selection because I just couldn't decide what to get. Appetizers were excellent. A great sampling of the entrée favorites including Ropa Vieja, Camarones Enchilados, and delicious roast suckling pig. Mmmmm!! Dessert included creamy rice pudding, delicious flan and a piece of tasty crumb cake. Finished the meal off with a nice espresso cubano.
