We used to love Victory Tap and thought it was one of the best Italian restaurants 8n Chicago. But since the city reopened, their food has gone from outstanding to just OK. It seems like they're using lower quality ingredients these days. I had ravioli with vodka sauce, which used to be one of my favorites. But this time it tasted just generic.
Thankfully, the service and ambiance remain outstanding.
One of the best in the city !
Great food and service
Our experience was amazing! Victor, our server, was great and all of the staff was so kind and welcoming! Definitely will be returning!
Celebrated my dear friends 🥳 Birthday! It was a great meal & a great time.
Our server was very busy, needed more help. Our salad never made it to the table, my sisters dish was suppose to have butter sage sauce, mine butter wine, both looked and tasted like thickened chicken broth. Our food was brought out on a tray and placed by our table, after a couple minutes I served us so the food would not get cold and people were walking by the tray. Drinks were good. More serving help and better sauce on the delicious food would have made this a great dining experience.
Great neighborhood spot. Friendly place with great food.
For "fine dining" it was an awful lot like a bar. If I wanted to hear people yelling and screaming, I would've just gone to the bar a few streets down. Food was okay. Overpriced and my steak was severely overcooked.
The food was outstanding and so was the service. Great Italian restaurant.
First date great place! Food excellent service great she loved it all!
The service and food was excellent. Lisa gave a wonderful wine recommendation as well.
We are so happy to be able to dine out again, and Victory Tap does not disappoint. Every dish we've tried has been absolutely delicious! It's a great neighborhood spot for the South Loop, and the Italian cuisine is second to none. We loved the octopus appetizer, the lobster ravioli, the linguine with clam in spicy tomato sauce, and the gnocchi with sausage and peas. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Loved it!
Always my favorite spot but last two visits restaurant has been warm. Needs AC on high and or windows open for a breeze
Went here for my birthday. It was great!
Too noisy for my taste. Music playing, loud crowd, TV; add some sound dampening.
Lisa is awesome!
The food and service are worthy of nicer table settings.
Victory is great place for dinner or just stopping in fir a drink. Friendly staff.
I was disappointed by Victory Tap b/c a friend had said they really love it, but they had only ordered takeout. Being in there was not my cup of tea. If you like it so loud you can barely hear the person across from you, then you'll be OK with it; I was not. I go out to dinner for good food (which they had), good service (which it was) and quality conversation (which was impossible).
I was also frustrated that our 7:30 reservation was not available when we arrived. But whatever - we got a drink at the bar and waited. At 7:50, when the host 2 feet away hadn't called us yet, I checked in. They had basically forgotten that we were waiting. No apology was offered.
And finally, they don't allow substitutions. I wanted broccolini rather than pasta as my side. They were going to charge me $8 for that switch. Maybe the $42 seabass special should have alerted me, but I thought it was ridiculous and changed my order.
Bottom line, we enjoyed the food and wine, but we got out of there asap, and I will not be going back.
Excellent entrees, awesome huge Caesar salad. Try the Chianti Classic too.
Always amazing service, delicious authentic food and energetic vibe.
My first baby time of many . The food is Stellar
Table was cleared when we got up to go to the bathroom
Great food, service, & vibe. Victory Tap has plenty of choices on the menu without overkill. Started with the sausage & peppers. GREAT SAUSAGE. Everyone loved their entrees, along with a couple bottles of wine. Nice crowd, attentive staff.
Oh yeah, Nana's Gravy, for all of you missing Bionda's.
We'll be back soon.

Food was awesome!! Will definitely come back again
Chris, thank you for your kind 5-star review. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Such a great neighborhood spot! The food is great, the service is fantastic. If you can snag an outside table, even better! We’ll be back!
Food was just alright, service lacked. Great prices for wine though!
One word. Awesome!! That’s it.
Way too loud inside.
We are so sorry about the volume. Please let us know when ever you would like quieter seating and we will do our best accomodate. Thank you for dining with us!
If you want good Italian, this is the place! I've tried almost all the items on their menu over the past few years and I never had a bad or mediocre meal! My go to favorites are the clams, grigliato misto and eggplant parmigiana and a new favorite, Eggplant and Chicken Salerno. The meatballs are boulders and great side to anything but one of my favorites lunches is when it's accompanying Momma's Sunday Salad. Pizza Margerita is my favorite, they have many kinds, but I usually don't share, I get the appetizer (Nova) pizzas. The service is attentive without being annoying, they are on their game and never have to look for them, they keep your glasses full and they're always friendly. Love this place!
Laura, thank you so very much for your kind review. We appreciate your choosing to dine with us. We look forward to you joining us again soon.
Wonderful evening, great food, Victor was our waiter and he was amazing, he made great food suggestions and really did us right. Great to be out and highly recommend this spot. Perfect.
I eat at VT at least once a week- that should say it all
The food was great! Parking in the area is difficult.
Went for dinner with a couple friends for a birthday. Server was new and he was great, as was the food ordered (Lasagna, ravioli and Greek Salad)
Jaime is the best bartender! Great service and food as always
Great service and great food!
This Mother’s Day was my 1st one without my mom. I decided to have brunch with a few friends of mine to help lift my spirit. I found Victory Tap on Opentable and after reading the reviews made the decision to dine here. I was NOT disappointed! The reviews were wonderfully correct. From our waitress to the ambience to the food it was PHENOMENAL! We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and we’re already looking forward to coming back. You won’t be disappointed! This is truly a hidden gem!
We have never had a bad experience at Victory Tap. Our servers were phenomenal. However, our drinks were not good. The sangria was bitter. We sent it back. The margarita was better.
This was our first experience at Victory Tap ! We celebrated Mothers Day and loved loved loved everything. The ambiance , music , fine dining and excellent service!! Thank you and well done ! We will be back soon.
