The Victor Cafe Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely phenomenal opera singers! I didn't think they could actually pull off great music AND yummy food, but they managed to--what a gem. I wish everyone knew about this place!!! I'm not even a fan of Italian fare, but I left very happy. I can't wait to go back to Philly to experience this unique setting yet again :-)
My wife and I enjoyed everything about this establishment. The wine list was extensive. The location was cozy. The food was delicious and the menu pricing was fair. The service was incredible. But what blew our minds was that everyone that works there sings opera...LIVE!!!! All whom performed had such great voices as well as performance. It was amazing and I’ll definitely be going back.
Victor Cafe is unique and fun. It always impresses out of town guests. We've been there with friends, business associates, and for birthdays and anniversaries. The wait staff is a phenominal group of singers and very attentive servers. The food is very good. This restaurant is Philadelphia's best.
The quality of the musicians was excellent and the presentation of classical music was accessible, not at all snooty. Cozy atmosphere with tasty Italian staples and a varied wine list. Unique, and with a gimnick that enhances the experience, not a cheesy distraction.
I love this restaurant, it is wonderful to have a good meal and listen to live opera performances every 20 minutes. Vso much history in the place too. I am amazed it isn't more well known, but it is always busy.
Great cocktail lounge upstairs too, like a European Salon! It is going yo be my new go to.
We came for the early New Year's Eve dinner. The food portions were good size for all courses and delicious. The only comment would be there should be a kids option, especially for the early seating. It is way too much food for a kid and other restaurants in the city have a kids option in addition to the fixed price menu. The singing was fantastic as always. It was a good value overall and we would do it again.
Wonderful old vintage Philadelphia Italian restaurant experience with live opera. Food is quality old school Italian fare well prepared and presented. Customer service was wonderful being able to accommodate a last minute additional 2 in our party on New Years Eve. Brava to the wonderful performances. Not to be missed for the experience.
From the moment we walked in the doors I fell in love with this place! Absolutely wonderful staff, ambiance, food, drinks, and amazing dessert. But, my favorite part would have to be the incredible staff serenading us with opera pieces every 20 minutes. It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced and I will definitely be talking about this for quite some time. Thank you!!
My wife and I had a wonderful time. We came here in the late 80’s when we were dating and living in the city. Hadn’t been back in years but now we wish we had! Julia our server was great. The server/singers were very entertaining and the food was excellent (better than we remembered).
The food was excellent. Good variety of seafood and pasta. Our reservation was for 8pm, but were not seated until 8:30. We had to ask for our drinks twice. They had a prix fixe dinner for $50 and only had one fish choice for the entree. Felt they could have offered a substitute. Quantity and quality were just right.
Went to Victor Cafe for a Holiday Date Night. We had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The service was superb and it was lovely to watch the talented attendants. The food and wine was excellent. I highly recommend Victor Cafe for any special night.
