For tapas or a proper meal,For tapas or a proper meal, Victors is a great spot for a moderately priced family gathering or pre-theater meal. We enjoyed a Sunday lunch in a bright atrium with a small combo giving just enough music for a Cuban flavor without smothering conversation.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWon't disappointI've been here several times now and brought friends with me. Everyone loved this place.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVictor's Cafe...a long time!I remember Victor's from Columbus Avenue.

Definitely a place we will recommend to others and visit when we come back to New York.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!My colleague and I were in NY for a conference and went to Victor's for lunch. It was so impressive, that we went back later that evening fo cocktails. The food was incredible! We were greeted with smiles by the hostess and it was all uphill from there. The service was friendly, prompt and professional. The lobster empanada was to die for. The ham croquettes were crisp and delicious. The steak with chimichurri was delectable. The cocktails were equally impressive. I cannot wait to go back to NY if for no other reason than to dine at Victor's. A++6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTheatre area gemPortions are large. So come hungry.

Great lunch spot for Summer Friday's.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed my lunchI really enjoyed my lunch experience at Victor's Cafe for a number of reasons. Very comfortable and bright atmosphere where dialogue wasn't challenged due to noisy background. Authentic Cuban cuisine was exceptional, both in quality and presentation. Good variety of options from which to choose, so there's something for pretty much anyone.Service was prompt and friendly, which adds to the overall experience.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, Good pricesOur family of 4 had Sunday brunch before a show recently.

They had it at the front desk- thank goodness- a fantastic trip could have been ruined!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTastey tasting!This was the most fun I've had at a restaurant in years! We both had the taste of Cuba tasting menu. We got to try all the favorites and they were all SO GOOD!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went to dinnerMy wife and I went to dinner at Victor's Cafe prior to heading to a Broadway show. In a few words, we loved it. The bar was energetic with Cuban music with guests singing along. The presentation and smell of the food as waiters passed us by while waiting to be seated made our mouths water. Once seated we had fantastic mojitos (they have many variations) where the bar tender did not skimp on the spirits. I had the paella which included lobster along with all of the traditional ingredients. My wife and I could have shared it the portion was so generous. The ham crocket appetizers were delicious and almost melted in your mouth. My wife had a salmon dish that she loved as well. We can't wait to go back. Allow extra time if heading to a show.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food great feelingWe went to Victor's based on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. The food was great although the Lechal Asada was not prepared the same way as the cochinillo that's husband loves when we go to Spain. The Lechal and the Ropa Vieja were both tender and flavorful. Good wine list. Churros for dessert. Live music. Great service.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the taste of CubaNever knew plantains tasted so good cooked so many ways5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcelenteLo recomendare a todas mis amistades y Felipe fue muy responsable y cuidadoso y su trato fue AAA5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal!My friends and I were in the city for the day and needed a place for dinner. We were looking for good food, great drinks and good atmosphere. Victor's delivered! Not to mention it's convenient midtown location.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a pre theater dateWe were a bit late for our reservation but I called and they told me it wouldnt be an issue, which was great and we were seated right away! We had sangria ( which is fabulous) and the quesadilla appetizer, which was the perfect amount to split for two. I had the Vaca Frita al Mojo Agrio, which was delicious! The only down side was that the waiter was a bit all over the place, as it was crowded, so we got our appetizer before our drinks. Not a huge deal given how busy they were. I will definitely be a repeat customer.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy FavouriteVictor's is my favourite restaurant in New York and definitely in my top five anywhere. We were there 30 years ago, then again 3 times in the last 4 years. I will visit Victor's every time I am in NYC. The food is fabulous and different from anything I have had anywhere else. The sangria is amazing. The fried sweet plantains are yummy, the paella is delicious, the salmon was the best I ever had, the rice and black beans a great accompaniment to the meal. The bread pudding and the cuban coffees were the perfect ending to a perfect meal. The service is impeccable, our waiter (Vicente) absolutely charming and I love the ambience of the restaurant. Cannot say enough great things!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVictor's comes through again50 years is a long time for a restaurant to be around. You don't need me to tell you that Victor's is good. When you go ask any waiter how long they have worked there. Our waiter on Friday night has been there 17 years and his comment says it all. "I look forward to coming to work every day" The champaign(sp) sangria is like no other.Go early or late and enjoy one of New York's many Gems.We have sent many of our friends there and they have never been disappionted .5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiter ServiceWhile I love this place, our waiter was difficult to find at times. Seemed to be more attentive to other tables. Still I intend to return, and recommend your establishment to others.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great place. EnjoyedIt was a great place. Enjoyed the unique cuban food.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent SeafoodI was pleasantly surprised by the food at Victor's. 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 AMBetter than South Beach!Victor's Cafe was fabulous. I've spent lots of time in Miami and have never had better Piaella and Ropa Vieja than here. The plantain chips and salsa were tasty and fresh and the table service was cheerful and attentive. The room decorations were colorful and very bright, and breezy. I've added this to my favorites list for NYC. For you vodka drinkers out there, try the skinny mojito! You'll love it!5/14/2013 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!

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 AMGreat meal!!As usual, Victor's didn't disappoint. The sangria was great. 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. If you're in the neighborhood, you have to stop at Victors.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA Cuban GemA great place to enjoy fine Latin cuisine.
