A neighborhood staple since 1984, Victor's has evolved into the perfect reflection of an Italian Trattoria. Though the quality of the food, thoughtfulness of the service, and the caliber of wines, beers, and cocktails offered may hint at a more upscale Ristorante, Victor's remains a cozy neighborhood spot, perfect for all occasions. The menu changes with the season and highlights local products when possible. Come and enjoy stuzzichini (snacks) at the bar with a pint from a local brewer or pair any of our more than 100 wines (over 1/3 of Italian varietals) on our wine list with Chef''s Prezzo Fisso menu.

The swordfish, salmon, and filet mignon were cooked perfectly! Both fish dishes were cook til moist, not overcooked until they were dry. The filet mignon was really cooked to medium rare, as requested. This restaurant knows how to cook fish and meat! Our waiter and service were fantastic. We would definitely go again and recommend to others.

We both ordered the Filet. It was grilled to perfection - charred on the outside and medium on the inside, as requested. We don't normally like asparagus, but the way they prepared it was delicious. The wine selection is good, and the service is friendly and professional. We'll definitely go back on our next visit to York.

It was to small for the amount of people that were there...Ive never had a hint of fine dining with people standing next to me waiting to use the bathroom...It was so much noise i couldnt hear the music on the other side....I think the menu should be tuned down to burgers...there is no dress code...way to loud on bar side...dinner prices do keep the riff raff out...the food portion were so small you didnt need a plate

Second time eating here. This visit felt we would have been better eating at home. Chicken parm was over cooked and meatball app a bit dry.

Reputation is good here so maybe a off night

Highly recommend this exceptional restaurant with their attention to detail, great service and wonderful food. Went to Victors with a group running an event at the York Expo the next day and wanted a special place to take everyone and we definitely found it. Looking forward to outdoor dining in the summer. Not a large restaurant which suited us just fine! Thank you for a great dining experience.

What a gem! The location is excellent and the food is unbelievable! I cannot believe that we have not eaten here before! The service was exceptional. Hats off to the chef, bartender, waiter and the owner. They know what they are doing here and they do it well! We cannot wait to go back. However, the next time we are taking friends with us do they can experience it!

Unique atmosphere--a converted church. Great service from Bridgette. The soup special--hot sausage and veggies was excellent. Menu offers 1/2 and full servings of pasta--suggest the 1/2 if also doing an appetizer or soup. We had stuffed ricotta full which was six shells--delicious but 4 would have been enough. Other meal was short ribs and wide noodles; also great. and of course, great cannelloni's

A great dinner with friends at Victors. Our server Brigitte did her usual great job greeting us and taking care of us. The service was attentive without forcing too fast a pace. Our wines were very good but inexpensive. The pork loin with cannellini beans I had was cooked perfectly and the tartufo for dessert is pretty decadent. It’s very hard to beat Victors for a friendly atmosphere, attentive service and good food.

We dined at Victors for restaurant week. The menu was a good variety to sample different types of food. My husband had the soup and this was his favorite part of the meal. He had chicken prosciutto item on the menu. It was quite tasty, the chicken was done well. The prosciutto was a very subtle flavor and would have liked more than this. The wine sauce on top was a bit underwhelming. I had the goat cheese risotto with scallops. My entrée was delicious but wasn't real warm. Cheese cake was top notch. Service was friendly and prompt.

Food was great. Prices were reasonable had a cozy little table and corner for the four of us. However the noise level was a little frustrating. As we got later into the evening we could hear each other far better. Recommend eating at a later time in order to deal with the noise level

Thank you sherbear! It can get very lively in our intimate dining room, especially on busy weekend nights, but we certainly love having a full house! I would also suggest that a weeknight or Sunday evening might offer a quieter experience. We look forward to hosting you again soon! Regards, Bill Albritton House Manager

My woodford Reserve old fashioned was ruined because the seltzer came from a dirty bar hose. The spaghetti Bolognese was overly nutmeg-y with very little taste.

Thank you for dining with us and for taking the time to leave your feedback. I checked with my service staff from last night and no one recalls replacing an old-fashioned or bolognese or fielding a complaint regarding either item. Did you mention anything to your server? We would have happily replaced both items for you. We soak our bar gun in soda water each night. I will ensure the bar staff is continuing to be diligent regarding our cleaning procedures.

I wanted to like this place. I had been to Victor's many years ago with my mother. But, with more and more good food options opening up in York, Victor's did not impress me for what you spend. We had three different dishes, which I would consider very good (winter salad), good, (stuffed shells) and poor (steak with fries and breaded chicken). However, the least impressive part of the experience was the service. I felt that Victor's lacked energy and communication. Our waiter barely talked, and twice I spoke to him while he was walking away (because he put things down so quickly and left), and he didn't hear me both times...or ignored us, I cannot know. Nobody seemed friendly at Victor's and only the young men who poured us water seemed careful about what they were doing. Victor's seemed drab and tired. I realize it's been around a long time, and so maybe it is just catering to a certain group that likes the ambiance there. Victor's might be for some, but for not for my wife and I.

I would give it another shot, but service was a little clumsy. Brought the 2nd course 1st. 1st 2 courses were superb. 3rd course was terrible. Her steak was bland and chewy, my salmon was so overcooked that it was dry and shredded to bits. It can't be that hard to cook a 4 inch piece of salmon. My last glass of wine had a bunch of sediment in it as well. It was the Sat after Valentines day and they were very busy. Would give another shot, but for 200 dollars, it was not a great value.
