    I cannot express how satisfied I am with the customer service. I went there with my fiancée (been engaged 4 days) and they gave us a nice, private table in the corner. 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!

    The food here is classic and truly amazing. It's so delicious I get cravings to return. My favorites - pesto arancini, heirloom salad, and saltimbocca. My guy got the filet last time and it was heavenly. Service is great! I live mostly in Philadelphia with no shortage of great food and this restaurant is still in my top 3. Check it out!

    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.

    We went to Victor's to celebrate our anniversary. Our table was ready only a few minutes after we arrived. Cocktails - Green Fairy (absinthe served right at table side & the Basil Vodka Gimlet. Both we're amazing! Our meals were served promptly and we're piping hot. Everything was perfect! We will certainly go back again.

    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.

    My wife and I had reason to celebrate, so without much debate, we decided to celebrate at Victor's, and it did not disappoint! The food was outstanding, and the service was excellent. There was also a nice selection of wines by the glass, so we were able to try a few different ones with our various courses. We'll definitely be looking forward to our next trip back!

    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.

    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.

    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.
