    This is our second time being here- the first during COVID. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We also go to hear the waitstaff perform their opera arias. Everyone gets quiet and listens attentively. Bravo to all

    It's really fun to go to Victor Cafe. Hearing opera and other songs throughout dinner is why we go! The food is good, but not our primary focus. We had salad and pasta. Also a nice atmosphere in the bar area waiting for our table. We'll return!

    We had an awesome experience. Everything about our dinner was wonderful from the time we arrived. The staff is so friendly and talented. They all sing from the heart. The meal was delicious from the drinks, to the appetizers, entrees and dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and entertainment. Janelli was fantastic! Will return and recommend to others. You’ll receive a beautiful singing treat on your birthday!

    The wait staff are opera singers. It’s a wonderful combo of music food and entertainment. We’re planning to return again soon.

    Amazing evening at this restaurant. Stephen our waiter was brilliant. The fact that all the waiters are trained opera singers is nothing short of fabulous… the singers take turns every 20-30 minutes and it creates the most wonderful experience and atmosphere.. these singers are top level opera singers and before each song, they explain the story behind it… the food… fresh, hot and DELICIOUS! I had the mushroom ravioli and the sauce was outrageously good, my husband had the veal and it was not only tasty… but enormous!… all in all a lovely evening, great food, great place… if you’re ever undecided on where to eat in Philly… TRY IT!
