Service was great and the food was SOOOOOOOOOO Delicious!!!!
Loudest restaurant I’ve ever in.
Great neighborhood gem. Staff was so nice and the food was great. Meatballs were fantastic!
By far, the best Italian food this side of the ‘pond’!
The bread, sausage and peppers, meatballs, clams, pizza, wine....excellent!
All were impressed
It was really loud!
We usually dine at the bar and have wonderful meals. We got a table upstairs and the service was slow and forgot a few things. It’s one of my favorite places in the south loop with the closest tomato sauce to my Nonna’s.
Although the food was outstanding, our service was not very good.
Great mussels appetizer and wife’s sea bass were great
My lobster special was cold. Have been there 50 times and alway great so will give them a pass
Very pleasant surprise! I will definitely go again to try additional dishes.
Great place in the South Loop for Italian. My wife always gets some kind of pasta with meatballs. She's a meatball connoisseur, and thinks these are terrific. I've had all sorts of menu items. Last time out, the bracciole was the special, and was delicious. Nice wine list.
Had a lovely dinner at Victory Tap. Restaurant week was a good value, portion sizes more than ample. We live in the neighborhood and are definitely regulars. My husband loves the escarole and beans and the green pizza. I was hoping to see a special that I had a few days ago, which was the seafood risotto, that was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. Please let me know when that is on the menu again!
Great tasting Italian cuisine! Portions are large on many items including the appetizers.
Very good service, but restaurant was not crowded. Noise level eas acceptable. However, as more people dined, it became very loud.
Excellent, as always! Best marinara in the city. The baked clams are a must.
Our server was great and took very good care of us. The only part of the experience that wasn’t so great was having to wait almost an hour for our 8:00 reservation. Overall good experience
Food was great as was the service! Portions are huge, you can easily share an entre, we will next time. A little loud, but that comes with a busy place ! A great server.. we will be back!
Great Food was busy because of NYE but overall we had a party of 4 & everything met our expectations. Very good food food-Hot & Fresh large portions.
Lisa made our experience! The whole meal was fantastic for our family. Will definitely be back next time we are in town.
Our local go-to Italian place. Christmas Eve with homey feeling and sitting up front which is our preference. (Fireplace and not as noisy and congested as main dining area.) Service was more than accommodating to vegetarian and dairy sensitivity. Food portions are large and very tasty. Keep up the good work in 2020.
Fabulous as ever. It’s our go to place!
We come weekly. First time on a Wednesday so may have been just different staff. We had our first bad drinks from the bar- always get Old Fashioneds and the bartender clearly did not know how to make and charged us $9 more per drink for the Angels Envy bourbon instead of CH- way over priced . She said the mid (?) was off and put vermouth in the drink- she clearly does not know how to bartend as even the remade one was awful. Generally your bar service is excellent.
Then we waited so long for dinner service - had to ask the hostess and then still had no waiter service until the manager finally noticed. At least twice, the other waitress walked by as did other staff, with no acknowledgment. We got thru entire plate of bread just waiting for first order service. Then the waiter wouldn’t let us order our entire meal up front, so we ended up waiting again for a long time between salad/ app and our main dishes because of his poor timing .
Last the ambience was ruined (not your fault) by a group of drunk medical office workers who were so loud and obnoxious sitting next to us.
The food was excellent as always, so we’ll be back but never on another Wednesday.
Great experience overall, but it was loud even at the back of the restaurant. Made conversation a bit hard.
The food was excellent and the restaurant had a great vibe to it! We will be back again
Absolutely love this place and the energy that goes with it! Thank you for keeping Red Schooner on the menu. Sausage and peppers and the bonus potatoes are my favorite! Be back soon
If you like Ravioli's or Lasagna this is the Place.
Food was great, but I feel all the staff are sales people. My waitress and manager both came over to after we got our food and the first thing out their mouth is do you need another drink? I would say focus more on the guest and experience the drinks will be ordered if we are enjoying ourselves.
Amazing Grigliato Misto Seafood appetizer.
Delicious appetizers and incredibly well prepared meals that are packed with flavor and presented beautifully. This is one of the best restaurants for Italian food with a vibrant atmosphere. Strongly recommend Victory Tap!
Fantastic bar staff!
Great service and food!
A great, relaxing evening prior to a hectic Thanksgiving holiday.
Eggplant stack salad was delicious. Eggplant could have been sliced a bit thicker.
Will be back with other friends in the near future.
One of my favorite spots ever. Love the Red Schooner on the wine list
