We have recommended Victors to many friends and Family. Even had a chance to speak with one of the owners outside. Fabulous evening, music and food outstanding
The singers were absolutely outstanding, the food quality was over-the-top and Marissa, our server, could not have been any more attentive/nicer/accommodating !!!
Wonderful dining experience with exceptionally talented opera singers. A philadelphia gem not to be missed!
Great food, entertainment and environment. Highly recommend!!!
Iris was our beautiful and talented waitress who served us the most delicious food. I surprised my mother in law from Ohio who loves opera. It was a wonderful evening we won’t ever forget. Grazie!
Victor cafe was amazing! The lounge is relaxing and the service was great! I know they are known for their opera exposure, but for the Rocky fan in me it was an amazing experience and the singing was an added bonus!
Everything about this restaurant is amazing; I will definitely return if I find myself anywhere near Philadelphia. Brilliant concept, fantastic food, warm welcome and novel, well executed entertainment.
Amazing evening with great food and great opera! Highly recommend
I recommended Victor's to three of my friends. Love the opera and the ambiance. My cannelloni was burnt to a crisp but I did not want to tell my friends because I recommended the restaurant. We ordered after dinner drinks and I felt as though the waitress was annoyed with us for staying. I was very disappointed and hesitate to recommend Victors again.
This is definitely a must go to place! The food was excellent, the singing was phenomenal, and the decor made me feel like I was sitting in Italy. My only misgiving was the booth I was sitting in was uncomfortable because it was entirely wood with no cushions, had straight-back seating, and there was very little room to maneuver. There were other seating options though, so maybe just request a table.
Wonderful experience for sure.
Very welcoming as we were greeted upon arrival, and seated immediately for our reservation.
We are confessed Foodies, and the food was excellent, as was the service.
We will continue to return.
Fantastic food and service as well as a great show with dinner
Food was amazing. Performances were memorable.
Our famiky was on a Spring Break trip to Philly and we took the advice of our Rocky guide, Mike Kunda, to eat at this restaurant. It was one of the best decisions we made. We loved our experience at Victor's and would recommend it to anyone. The food was exceptional as was the service. The ambiance and decor couldn't have been better, and the opera was outstanding. I can't describe what it was like; you have to experience it for yourself. Just go!
I highly recommend The Victor Cafe. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. I can’t wait to go back!
Wonderful all around! Will definitely be back! The food, service, and singing were phenomenal.
The ambience, service, performance, and food were excellent. I will definitely go back with my husband. I thought it was an amazing night and overall I give it five stars. The reason I gave value a three star was because the tortellini dish that my husband had looked equivalent to what an appetizer would have been. Taste was excellent however! Also the appetizer of mozzarella and tomatoes was very small portion for two. Overall, I highly recommend you go to this restaurant! Was fantastic!
Christmas gift for my in-laws
Consistent and entertaining.
Food outstanding. Opera singing amazing. Very loud restaurant, could not hear my date talk and service was not good.
Very good food. The opera singing was nicely done.
The Burrata was great and the Tortellini was excellent. Paired with the Maremma Toscana 642 it was a wonderful dinner. Our server was on top of everything and yet not bothersome.
We were a little disappointed in the mussels in white sauce. PEI mussels are know for their consistency in size and texture and other times here and in other restaurants they have not disappointed. This time however some were large, chewy, fishy and sandy.
We will be back. Food and service this good is hard to come by. The upstairs lounge is comfortable and the bartenders outstanding when making an old fashion.
Excellent gem of a restaurant in the heart of South Philly. We'll Definitely be back. Bravo to the amazing staff
This is one of the most interesting restaurant in the Philadelphia are with the waiters & waitress singing opera to the customers. I would recommend Victor Café to anyone who enjoys an evening out with good food.
Where are unique old-school Italian restaurant with lots of artwork and beautiful opera singing by the wait staff.
My husband took me here 19 years ago. It was one of the best dates of my life. This time we brought our kids to introduce them to Philadelphia. Another fantastic night!
Absolutely fabulous! We love this place. The singers are phenomenal. Best place to celebrate a birthday in the city!
Very enjoyable evening. Staff was extremely friendly, food was great! Highly recommended
Except for the two women at the next table that kept talking during the performances, it was a wonderful experience.
The food was spectacular: the beet salad appetizer and the salmon filet dinners were amazing. The server was excellent, polished, poised and polite. The singing, heavenly. Upon leaving we both can’t wait to go back. (Just have the staff tell inconsiderate patrons to be quiet when beautiful singing voices are resounding in the restaurant.)
Really enjoyed the restaurant & the singers were the best. The pasta presentation not so good, like took a wet dish with water still on it from being cleaned I guess & gravy was watered down a bit & visually did not look good.
Sausage on pasta was tough & not good, meatball was okay, had better & being 100% Italian & cooking delish Italian food dishes for over 40 years, I would know. I appreciate all foods made from others & of all different ethnicities and especially Italian, I love trying them all but was not 100% pleased with sausage or meatball...too tough...not moist or juicy at all...more chewy.
For the money that your charging, has to be the best!
Possibly will be back & hopeing food lot better. The service & singers were the best!
My wife and I came a little early and went upstairs for a cocktail The bartenders were great, kind and very attentavive. They even took our pictures, using our camera. The memerobelia was fantastic, but a summery under certain pictures would be nice for us ameratures.
Wait staff and singers were fantastic. Ordered the whole cooked fish and got a lot of bones. Typically Ive had it served at tableside and fillayed.
Overall very romantic and excellent experience. This was my second time there and well worth it.
A satisfied customer.
First time there and excellent all the way around!! Food is top notch and the opera singing staff are all phenomenal!! Will definitely be back and bringing friends!! Thanks!!
The new upstairs is lovely. Voices outstanding and perfectly timed. Felt a bit rushed but over all we had a very good time.
Wow! It sure was worth the trip from CA - food was delicious, singers were spectacular, and cafe was cozy and welcoming. :)
My son is a big Rocky fan and this was one of our places to visit and it was well worth it!
The food is a little expensive but quality is very good and you get opera with your meal!
Very nice experience, good food, good service, perfect ambiance with perfect singers!
I live in Richmond VA and this was my fourth visit. Originally “Victor’s” was recommended to my family by a friend who is resident in Philadelphia. Since that first visit with family friends, three times I have organized a party from our garden club to come to the restaurant for dinner when visiting the Philadelphia Flower Show. Everyone has been delighted with their experience and I hope to come again whenever we should be in Philadelphia.
Great service, friendly attentive staff. Food was very good from the appetizers to the entrees. Great Philly tradition.
One of a kind experience... unforgettable!! Great food, history, ambiance and unbelievablely talented young opera singers as waiters who sing as entertainment!
