    Having our friend from out of town joining us for his birthday required a special place to celebrate. Our first thought was Victory Park Tavern. This place never disappoints. The food is always hot, fresh, perfectly cooked and delicious. Inside you’re reminded of an old world pub. The crowd is friendly, and full of locals, with people frequently running into old friends sharing the same idea for dinner. The service is what really ties it all together. First rate and attentive, Ryan and the entire staff make sure your meal is to your satisfaction. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants and dining experiences. Our friend was blown away and has already decided that he wants to celebrate his next year’s birthday here.

    I’m writing this review not for the food but more for the staff. I constantly read reviews of restaurants where patrons are ripping the restaurant apart for slow service and food not up to par. In this climate I think it is unfair, we are all suffering and dealing with new normals. I’d like to praise the staff, especially our server, Stefanie H for a great evening! She ran her butt off and never forgot any request we made….all with a smile and great attitude!!! I noticed the other staff members rushing around as well. No one ever stopped moving. Thank you Stefanie!!!! As for food, appetizers were great. Mac n cheese, dumplings and mussels were all delicious. Main course, my chicken under the brick was a little dry, hangar steak was delicious but small portion. Dessert bread pudding hit the spot, caramel ice cream great, but cappuccino was very small. None of the above we complained about because it was a great night and who needs another complainer!

    We recently had a terrific experience at Victory Park Tavern. The food, service and atmosphere was excellent and our cocktails were outstanding. It has an upscale bistro type of feel which is perfect for a date or family outing. The VPT has quickly become one of our favorites in Rumson. Also want to acknowledge our server Donna who was very attentive and personable. Already making plans to go back!

    Food is great. Atmosphere is great. But for that kind of money you shouldn’t have to ask the server three times to clear dirty plates and glasses and empty sugar packets and then have the server get annoyed for me asking.

    Everything was outstanding.. They greeted us with Happy Mother's Day.. We started with french onion soup; then each had the strip steak... So delicious. I had sangria - which was probably the best i've ever had... Price wise it was a expensive but I would definitely go again. I have already recommended to 2 friends & will definitely suggest it for work dinners with clients.

    This is a great local restaurant. With a a warm tavern setting it provides an enjoyable ambiance. We started with cocktails. All well mixed. We had a selection of appetizers for the table. The Tuna Tower and meatballs (veggy) we particularly good. For mains, we had the Homade Pasta Bolognaise, Pork Chop, Tavern Burger, and Onion Berger. Each one was excellent! Our server was friendly and attentive.
