    We go to Victors about once a month either for a Happy Hour or a Dinner. Their food is Chef Quality and the presentation and taste are second. We would say that Victor's is definitely one the the finest places to eat in the York area.

    In an area with few fine dining restaurants, Victor 's is a gem. We eat out often and in many notable cities around the globe. The food here us competitive with fine dining establishments. Six of us dined so there was a good sampling of the menu. The service was a tad slow but still quite good.

    They have the absolute best eggplant caprese salad I've ever had!! Everyone in the group I met there said they'd have to order that next time we go there. We meet once a month and have decided to meet at Victor's every month from now on because the food is so good! The service is great too!

    It was almost as if the food was trying too hard to live up to the community's expectations. This restaurant came highly recommended and it fell way short. We definite will not return. Service was mediocre at best. Entrees were just missing something. We ordered dessert to go and the order was wrong.

    I took a chance and took my wife to Victor's for our 1st anniversary. When I heard that it was built in an old church I was sold. We were seated shortly after arriving and getting some drinks at the bar. We were greeted by our waiter, which was at our table just the right amount of time. We both ordered steaks which were beyond our expectations, one of the best steaks I have ever had! ( And I have a lot of great steaks) I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!

    Went here with another couple...got a bottle of wine for the table and house salads that all came out fine. My dinner was wrong ( think the waiter heard the wrong dish). No hesitation to take it back and gave me a free glass of wine while I waited. Our friends got dessert which they said was good. Would go back again!

    We are considering holding our rehearsal dinner here next summer, but had never been here because we live 30 minutes away. We enjoyed the charm of the old church and overall ambience. The food and wine was also excellent. We'll definitely return for dinner again and if they can handle a group our size we will most likely book our rehearsal dinner there as well.

    The bruschetta came on soggy bread. The waitress explained that it was on gluten free bread. My opinion, that should be an option, not the standard. The salad was nothing spectacular, just chopped lettuce on a small plate. Wife had ceasar, I had house. The only difference I could see was I had 2 tomatoes whereas she didn't. The entrees and desert were outstanding which is why I gave the food section a 4. The service was outstanding. A wedding party of 30 came in around 8. We went for dinner at 730 so we could enjoy the band that went on at 8. By 815, the wedding party was so loud and obnoxious we couldn't hear the band from 10 feet away so we just decided to leave. This definitely was not worth the $100 we spent for the evening.

    Went to Victor's for the first time, it was a Friday night. There was a Jazz band playing in the Bar. Loved it! Our server couldn't have been any nicer, took great care of us. Extra bread, without having to ask. Food was delicious!! The whole night was great. Have already raved to others about how wonderful a time we had, & they must go. Thank You

    We've been dining at Victors as much as we possibly can (without the kids). The chef is amazing and I usually order whatever is on the Chef Special. You can't go wrong with any of their meals. I'm not a beer drinker but their beer list is incredibly vast. The service is top notch as well. When asked about a great place to go I always suggest Victors. ...BTW it's in an old church...very neat atmosphere

    My wife and I went out for dinner on a Monday night for our 35th Wedding Anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the house red white was very good. It is not an intimate setting, but the noise was minimal and there is some level of privacy. The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. We enjoyed our evening and will certainly return.

    The food is well prepared and really better than most Italian restaurants. We sat at the bar and the bartender was attentive, and friendly. They served respectable drink. The calamari app was tasty and spicy. nice and crispy and tender. Our seafood dishes were very tasty(Shrimp and lobster parpadelle and Fuuiti di mare) the seafood was cooked properly and pasta was nearly just right(a tad on the soft side). The restaurant, I believe, is in small old church or some such building, giving it a different, but pleasant setting. The outdoor dining looked nice, as it was on a quiet little street with little traffic passing by. This restaurant was an especially good one given the rather rural area it is in.

    Victor's has the combination of excellent food, excellent wine, and excellent service. We always ask for Bridget and consistently have service that is prompt, friendly, and attentive. She knows the food and wine and is skillful in recommending items to fit your preferences. The specials are always worth consideration, using the pick of local ingredients at the peak of freshness. Yet, the seasonally changing menu is reliably good.

    The food was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful and relaxing. We were not rushed at all, the server brought our next courses out at our own pace. Because we were able to work through our meal without feeling that we had to hurry up and vacate the table, we were able to sample more beers and wine, try some desserts, and really made a night of it. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the mood for a relaxing evening with some great drinks and great food!

The food was amazing and the beer selection is fantastic (great for craft beer fans)! At the end of the night, the shift manager bought us dessert as a congratulations on our engagement. I highly recommend that everyone gives Victor's a try!!! You won't regret it!

    I have been In and around the York, PA area forever but never knew Victor's existed. I was surprised to see signs that they are celebrating their 30th anniversary. Victor's is housed into a converted church.The bar area is a cool area to just hang out and meet interesting people. The menu is Mediterranean, with lots of interesting dishes. I had crab ravioli and my friend had flank steak, both items not normally on the menu. We were both very pleased. The beer list is excellent. Service was top notch. The place was full and very noisy as the dining is space is open and the tables are close together. I recommend Victor's for a fun evening with friends, not for a quiet romantic dinner or to discuss important business.

    The menu was absolutely incredible and we had a hard time choosing from all the great dishes listed. From appetizer to dessert we were blown away, everything was amazing. The crab and shrimp ravioli were so good. The icing on the cake was the tartufo for dessert, it was so unique and refreshing. The only problem we had was the noise level, it was super loud and we had a very hard time holding a conversation with each other.

    Service was spot on. Food was exceptional.I would consider this more of a fine dining experience. The dishes are a little more exotic and creative. Great place to celebrate a special occasion. It is in an old church so it was loud. And the air condoning was a bit too cold. But neither took away from the overall dining experience.

    Our server was terrific. She was patient as we waited for our entire party to arrive. She made sure we had what we needed as we waited. Once our entire party was present she was very cordial and listened to our needs. One member of our party had a special dining need and she made sure to get the information needed for the kitchen crew. Our meal was served with an appropriate amount of time from ordering to the table. Dishes cleared, when needed and respect of our conversations we had going on. We never felt the need to stop talking while they cleared the table, as i have had to do at other places. They seemed to know when to clear and when to steer clear of the table. We had a great night!! Thank you !

    Heard great things about the restaurant before I went to lunch with 3 friends. Its in an old church, so something a little different and the decor added to the experience. Our waiter was very attentive. I did find it to be crowded and noisy for trying to hear my table mates. The menu was interesting, but what I chose, I would not select again. The grilled chicken sandwich wrapped in prosciutto. This is a fatty ham, so at a restaurant of this stature, I expected it to be trimmed. It was not. Also the tomatoes served at our table everyone's order had them) looked horrid. This is July they should be beautiful! They appeared to have been frozen or maybe just cut and refrigerated--I expected more. I will not return.

    Victors has great food prepared with love and attention by a dedicated staff. When you park out back you see how small a kitchen they must have, but the food comes out quickly and with flare. The beer selection is always exceptional and they even offer cask pulled beers like an English pub. A family favorite with a local feel and consistently good food.

    My husband and I were thrilled with the restaurant and quality of food. Each item had a unique flavor; and the menu met the needs for both of us. As a vegetarian, there were ample choices to meet my needs. And the waitress explained that accommodations could be made for other menu items. We commend the chef! My only disappointment was the noise level in the restaurant. Though my request for a quiet table to celebrate our anniversary was given the best possible location, it was only upon our arrival that we realized, there is no quiet, romantic location. Seated next to us was a party of six, with diners definitely enjoying their dinner. At times, we could not hear each other. Recommend for superb food, not for a quiet romantic meal.

    Who knew a person could find such a wonderful restaurant in a quiet residential neighborhood in York? At first we thought it was the neighborhood church, but we quickly discovered that this little church building had been renovated to become a real gem of an eating spot with indoor tables and an outdoor patio for quick bites. We were not an easy group, with food allergies and specific requests easily met by the server. Our 8 month old grandchild was with us, and our server was so great with him, even bringing him soft food to try out. We were so surprised and pleased with the food, service and decor that we will be sure to return next time we're in town.
