ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I've heard about this restaurant for years and finally decided to go for my birthday. I can't wait to go back. Everything was amazing - the food, the service, the performances. We got there slightly early and grabbed some seats upstairs at their bar beforehand, which was very cozy. Highly recommend!
The food was amazing, not a morsel was left on either of our plates. We loved the atmosphere and the singing by the staff was simply fantastic!
Everything was excellent. Amazing service and dining/musical experience.
Great night out
Actually had tears with a few of the performers
Victor's Cafe never ceases to amaze me. Great food, great service, and such a unique, spectacular atmosphere for a classic Italian dining experience!
Loveeee the victor cafe and will be back
Go here at least once in your life. Also be sure to enjoy the cocktail lounge.
This was our first time at the Victor Cafe. We went on Valentines Day. The atmosphere was great! The waiters/waitresses being trained opera singers was awesome. Food was very good. Glad we went
Intermittent to their phenomenal service, the waiters and waitresses will break into song, providing entertainment a la operatic compositions throughout your meal. There is also a phenomenal upstairs lounge you MUST go to before or after your meal. Ambience is fabulous. Food even better. The service cannot be beat.
Great Service, Great stuff and Great food
Great atmosphere and the opera singing was amazing! Good food but it arrived a bit cold and the portions were small.
Highly recommend, what an awesome experience....a definite must go when in town!
Always a go to place for atmosphere, great music, and opera.
This is my favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. Awesome food, wine list, service and the opera entertainment in 20 min intervals is great. Do yourself a favor and visit The Victor Café. You deserve it.
Just an unbelievable experience and awesome food with great service...5 stars all around.... and the singers were all Fanomonial!!
Have been here numerous times, have never been disappointed with the service, singing, ambience and food. It is something everyone should experience. The staff goes out of there way to make you feel like you are at home.
Nice place. Meals were good, service was also good the singing was amazing.
A Total Experience...and Great food! My husband and I have lived in South Philly all our lives but this was our first time here. It won’t be our last. We started with the burratta and prosciutto stuffed with ricotta. Absolutely delicious. We both had the whole fish which was cooked to perfection! Ended with a delicious dessert for a perfect ending to a wonderful experience. The talented wait staff sang beautifully and we ended the evening upstairs at the charming bar area. Can’t wait to return!
Third visit and it just never gets old. This place is absolutely fantastic. Our meals... wonderful. I had the crab stuffed raviolis. My wife, the salmon. For desert, I had the cheesecake with mango topping. My wife, a warm chocolate cake. Absolutely delicious. And that is not even the best part!!! The entertainment there is out of this world. I still have goosebumps. Thank you Victor Café. We will see you again soon!!!
The singers were amazing, and the 2nd floor lounge was a great surprise. We enjoyed our meals and the excellent service. The only disappointment was that they did not offer any gluten free pasta. Our waitress was able to have the chief modify the chicken Piccata for my daughter, which was a relief. The valet parking took the stress out of parking.
fantastic - singers were incredible. observation - dress code getting more and more casual everywhere you go anymore. a generational thing i guess.
We live in San Antonio Texas and my husband is a professional wrestler and gets booked out in philly 2-3 times a. Year and we always make sure we come to our favorite restaurant. Victor cafe never disappoints
We love everything! Had the Tortellini with pesto and my partner had the mushroom stuffed ravioli with gorgonzola sauce and we both shared their pork chop! Ended the night with tiramisu. Loved everything especially the singing every 20 minutes, felt like we were in a theatre, great thing was we we’re eating while listening 👍🏻
We loved it!
The Victor Cafe is a fantastic experience. Authentic Italian cuisine accompanied by authentic fantastic live opera. It was fabulous!
Very good food, interesting experience for newbies.
Great spot! Calamari was tasty! The veal entree was delicious! Also a few cocktails hit the spot. Finished with a cannoli at the end! Awesome singers :)
Wonderful place to celebrate a birthday! The food is great and the opera singing magnificent!!
If you love Opera - this is a must visit for you! The food is awesome but what makes this place so special is the décor of the restaurant and the fact that every 20 minutes, someone from the wait staff actually gets up and sings an aria from an opera. First, they give a brief synopsis of the story and they tell you what their character is feeling. The music was superb. This was my first visit and I can not wait to go back again!
Really cool decor. Awesome bar upstairs. Great food. Great entertainment. 6 stars for me. I’ll definitely be back.
Absolutely unique!! A must for everybody loving in or visiting Philadelphia.
Always great food and service!! The upstairs is a great spot to wait for your table and do some drinking. Love love love this place!
Great wait staff, good menu, fantastic food and awesome entertainment. We had a great time . Looking forward to returning
It was absolutely wonderful! What a romantic and unforgettable experience!
My girlfriend and I had a great nigh there. Our entrees were outstanding and we were very impressed by the singers. We hope to come back one day with more people.
My wife and I went this past weekend and are still raving. The filet was cooked to perfection and the cannelloni was filled with rush deliciousness. The singing was the icing on the cake. Each performer was exceptional. We’ll be returning soon.
Went for birthday dinner, and it was absolutely fabulous. The food, atmosphere, wait staff, all were terrific. Definitely going back.
Don't get there often, but always has been a great experience over the years
