    I took my girlfriend here for a surprise birthday dinner. She broke up with me two days later. However, this had nothing to do with our time spent at Victors. This place will always be one my personal favorite places to dine, drink and be merry. Staff is elite in their knowledge of what they serve and the manager always has a smile on his face and is genuinely a hands down good guy. Dinner here often feels like dinner at a family members house. If you have not been here yet, go this week. If you have been here before, go back soon.

    The food was very tasty – thoughtful dishes, cooked to perfection. I had the scallops, which were among some of the best that I've ever had. The location is slightly off the beaten path in a residential area, and a large lot provides ample parking. The overall ambiance was nice, though the place is small and as a result got noisy quickly. We found it difficult to carry on a conversation at our table without straining and raising our voices.

    In a city, town?, of limited dining options, I need to make a reservation for me an 5 colleagues, visiting from places likes like Dallas, Las Vegas, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, and New York. I took a chance. They did not fail on making it delicious and enjoyable for everyone involved! Quite the feat for a foodie group. If business takes you from out of town to York, I urge you...do not miss this spot.

    We frequent Victor's on special occasions and to have a nice meal with our friends. Each person in our party chose seafood dinners which were incredibly delicious, fresh, and presented well. Chef George creates a new menu each season along with keeping his favorites. The wine and beer list are quite extensive. The decor is pleasing. My only concern at Victor's is the noise level. I do hope that will be addressed in the future which would enhance the whole dining experience. I highly recommend Victor's for an enjoyable dining experience.

    We had a wonderful dining experience at Victors last Friday. Wonderful service, not rushed but very close at hand when needed. Arrived very early for our reservation and were told our table was ready for us whenever we arrived. So nice to be accommodated with such a good demeanor and smiling faces. The food was all prepared very well---seasoned nicely and presented beautifully. A bit of the beaten path but a nice setting in the neighborhood. Will return again.

    We've been here multiple times now, and this has become our go-to standard. We recommend the mushrooms and crab cakes for starters, the scallops or any if the pastas for a main, and the dessert with the espresso cup - delish! The ice cream ball is pretty good too. The service here is better than any more-expensive place, and their wine and beer list can't be beat in York. Definitely check it out!

    Food was great, our seat wasn't ready on time so we choose to eat on the bar side at a tiny table, it was a little crammed but food was worth it. Leave plenty of time for your dining experience. Never had surf and turf made quite that way, very tasty. My wife enjoyed her meal as well, the food was worth the wait. The waiter was young and did a great job despite the busy area he had to cover Good craft brew selection, Peroni on Tap would have made the wait much better :) to many high test craft beers are not good for any commute.

    First time there and love the ambiance - converted church turned into beautiful restaurant. Caesar salad was infused with a lemon zest that definitely made it different. Eggplant and chicken parmesan entrees were delicious! Could use a little bigger wine list, but the house wine was excellent! We will be back.

    My husband and I did the date night Wednesday night. The restaurant is in a little neighborhood in an old church. We liked the atmosphere. They had a great wine and beer menu. The date night menu choices were limited though and portions were quite small. However, the food itself was delicious, fresh, and I understand "farm to table". Regular menu is better.

We like to dine out often and have not found a better, nicer place to enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend Victor's Italian Restaurant. Please be sure to make reservations because many other people have found this "jem" as well.

    Our waiter Matt was fantastic. He was friendly, very knowledgeable about the menu, and extremely attentive. Grade A+ Wife had the soup special for an appetizer and I had the crab cake trio. Very nice. Wife had the chicken parm for dinner and thought it was very good. I had the shrimp and scallop pesto and enjoyed it. Bread was freshly baked and delicious. If we had ended the meal at this point, I probably would have given them a 5 because our server was fantastic and we really enjoyed the food. Grade A Unfortunately, they blew it on dessert. Drop me a note for more details since I have exceeded the number of characters. Despite the dessert debacle, we would definitely return, the overall meal and service were great...

    I liked the atmosphere and the service was very good. I also thought the food was quite good but if it were not for the wednesday special (2dine for $40) i would consider the food overpriced. The special was worthwhile and offered some nice options to sample. The meatball app was underwhelming. I make the same at home, only smaller. When i'm in a chef's " house" i expect to try something different and unique, not everyday. It was good but...not memorable. However, i thought the shrimp and asiago raviolis were wonderful-- flavorful and surprisingly light for ravioli. Overall, worth the trip for a special night out but don't forget the visa!

    We had a very lovely Valentine's Day Dinner at Victors. The ambience was quiet and there was a quartet walking around singing acapella which was wonderful! Our dining experience was great, and the food was wonderful. I wasn't crazy about our waiter though. We asked him what the "Chef's Vegetables" were today as it was mentioned in one of the entrees. He said "I don't know whatever the Chef decides- I think it may be asparagus". There were some other questions we asked about the entrees, and he didn't appear to be very helpful. Other than that though - fantastic experience! Would highly recommend.

    This was actually the second time in one week we got food from Victor's and the first time we dined in. Super cute place, great ambiance - we were celebrating our 10 yr anniversary. Our server was awesome as was my basil gimlet - my husband loved the craft beer options, the menu is really extensive. I had chicken parm last week and the pasta special this week, I don't think they make their own pasta - but they should. I enjoyed my meals - the salads are sparse though. We had a great time and think there is so much potential for this place!

    My husband and I brought one of our top clients here for dinner (her choice) and we were very impressed! Artfully designed, delicious aromas, pleasant and helpful staff, and the BEST italian food I have had for ages. The only problem was finding a parking space, which on a Friday night is to be expected. A full parking lot is always a good sign, too. We are looking forward to our next special meal at Victor's.

    Fantastic food quality. Amazing steak. The duck was a little on the gamey side. I've had better duck at the Shepard Mansion. Waiter left a bit to be desired. Somewhere along the line someone failed to communicate my request for my wife's birthday cake and ruined a simple surprise. For what I paid this could have been a lot better experience. The waiter was arrogant, condescending, and didn't seem to care we were paying customers since gratuity was included.

    osso bucco was out of this world good the night we dined so was the tuscan t-bone steak, the cheeseboard with italian meats was well worth the money, simply couldn't fit dessert in. impressive wine by the glass list in addition to the beer selection(wife a wine drinker, and i can appreciate a well selected beer or wine myself). Service was top notch. Definitely make a reservation for this place! been here before and couldn't get a table ate at the bar before though just as good.

    I hadn't been to Victor's for several years and was impressed with the changes to the décor. All started out well and both myself and my friend ordered the Veal Saltimbocca which was melt in your mouth good. This was a holiday gathering from my friend and I so we were talking and enjoying the leisurely flow of our meal. That was until the waiter came to the table, with carryout containers, picked up my friends plate and put her food in the container without even asking if she was done. Then he went for mine as I was taking a bite! We were flabbergasted. Then the check appeared and he stalked the table until (not saying anything) until we put our money out. I would still recommend Victors just be on the look out for pushy waiters.
