Italian fun. Good food. Fabulous Veal over Risotto. Waiters ring a bell and one of them explains the opera song they will sing. Could use better wine selection. But loved it. Uber ride from downtown. Worth it.
Its a wonderful place to go for any reason. The wait staff sings and are wonderful . The parking leaves a lot to be desired but they have valet parking. Highly reccomend.
We loved the Victor Cafe. The food was great and the opera was terrific. We'll be back.
We loved the experience but were disappointed there was no gluten free pasta. The singing and ambiance was incredible, I only wish it was our birthday because they sang Happy Birthday beautifully! The gentleman up in the bar was fabulous too. When it came to ordering we were disappointed about no option for gluten free pasta. Instead we ordered appetizers as our meal, lots of gf choices there! Unfortunately our server was not thrilled with our decision. We enjoyed ourselves anyways and would recommend this experience to our friends.
The Victor Cafe dinner we enjoyed by all six people in our party and were very pleased with the operatic voices we were lucky enough to listen to with rapt attention! The food was excellent, as well as the wait staff were fabulous! We'll have to go back again soon! It's well worth the drive!
We were celebrating out 27th anniversary and wanted to visit the restaurant in "ROCKY". But we were so amazed by the ambiance and the entertainment. The food was OFF THE CHARTS FANTASTIC!!!
We had an amazing dinner and were so fascinated by the wait staffs talent and LOVE for what they do. Our waiter Sean was Fantastic. all the wait staff sang with an amazing sound and such beautiful voices. It was truly an experience that we would and WILL do again. If we lived in PA we'd go as often as allowed. But living in Stamford, CT just about 2:15 hours away we need to make plans. What a GREAT tradition to keep alive. I read the history of the Cafe and was so happy that i did. It made the experience so much more enjoyable. We will be there again.
Delightful dinner. The opera singers are great. Food was very good
Went for my sisters birthday. The singing was very entertaining and fun for singing her happy birthday at the end. And the food was delicious!
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Victor's Café. The opera singers were amazing. Actual they gave us a nice break in our meal to sit back and enjoy our dinner together. Old school charm, authentic Italian cooking, pleasant atmosphere, how could you go wrong in not picking this gem.
Great night at Victors enjoying great food, music and outstanding service. Great value on Italian wines - the specials on the night menu more reasonable an outstanding Barolo. Veal was delightful, burrata fresh and roasted peppers perfect. With the singing, made it most enjoyable. Will be back to my old hood again.
We like this restaurant! Amazing food and ambiance!
A really fun dinner. First the Victor Cafe is a very good traditional Italian restaurant that has been around for decades. But it is more than that! All the servers are trained opera singers. Periodically through the meal, a bell is rung. You are then treated to a solo by one of the staff members. A very pleasant experience.
It was amazing. Great food served by very talented servers
Food, music, overall experience were all amazing! Short concerts by the staff was very entertaining and food was absolutely delicious!
Everyone should go to The Victor Café. The food is great Italian food as the talented wait staff
will perform Opera as you dine. For your birthday, all of the wait staff sings Happy Birthday
with the Operatic twist!!!!! Great food and entertainment.
After dining, you can go upstairs for an after dinner drink. The upstairs is cozy, calming
beautiful. The Victor Café is a Philadelphia, PA diamond!!!!!
Top notch from start to finish - the lounge, the food, the service, the atmosphere, the singing !!
This was recommended to me from a friend who had been there and said it was outrageous fun the food was delicious and he had a great time. The candle lit bar upstairs was extremely cozy.
The food was delicious. The service was very professional. The opera was fabulous. The bread pudding was terrific as was the tiramisu. Will definately go back. Would recommend to others.
Excellent restaraunt. I enjoyed the crab cake, Caesar salad, crab filled ravioli, and bread pudding. The opera singing was outstanding. A fun filled evening with great food , great entertainment, and great company. Highly recommended.
Great classic Italian food with terrific operatic arias sung throughout the evening. Fun experience.
Awesome dinner tonight
Decent portions. Nice variety of authentic Italian food (just wished the fried calamari was better seasoned). Topped off with amazing dinner entertainment. My server was not only friendly and prompt but hearing her sing opera made me tear up. Overall, a pleasant and memorable experience.
Love this place! Try to go at least twice a year. Food is great and music is amazing. A special dining experience.
You come to this restaurant for a nice Italian dinner and operas break out!
Great ambience, food was good but on the whole the performing artists made the night
Wonderful time! Singing and food were terrific!!!
Second time here. It was our 25th wedding anniversary. My party consisted of my son, my wife and myself. My wife's meal was prepared incorrectly prior to her getting it so it was delayed. Not a big deal other than the waiter feeling like he had to give us a full explanation of what went wrong in the kitchen. We didn't care as we were enjoying the singing while we were waiting. What got me very upset is that my 20 year old son specifically requested that the group sing a quick happy anniversary song to the tune of the birthday song which we heard them do many times. He had asked that he be able to record it and was told it wouldn't be an issue. So when dessert came out we were all prepared for a happy anniversary song to be performed but they simply played something unrelated over their sound system. I will never forget the disappointed look on my wife's face. We drove one and a half hours from NJ for the experience only to be completely let down. Do not go here if you expect anything special for an anniversary. They'll sing happy birthday but apparently that's all they know. We could have gone anywhere for our 25th but chose Victor''s Cafe. Big mistake that I will regret for a very long time.
Fabulous as always. Great place for date night. We now eat keto - and waitress helped us stay compliant. Fish and steak were great.
Such a gem - and a Philadelphia institution! The vocals are just wonderful!
Great food and ambience. The Opera singing servers is fantastic
I took my parents to Victor Cafe as they were visiting out of town and it was a wonderful experience. It was one that I've never experienced before. Not only is the staff wonderful in their service, but are all extremely talented. You don't have to be an opera fan to appreciate the experience you will receive. The Victor Cafe should be on everyone's list.
Arugula with figs was very tasty as was the ravioli with lobster and the pasta with shrimp and scallops. This was our second visit and we will take friends the next time we go. If we lived closer we would probably be regulars.
We went here for my daughter's birthday this past weekend and it was a wonderful, memorable experience! I reserved through Open Table and I indicated that we were celebrating a birthday. I didn't even have to say anything to the waitress about the birthday and they brought us a cannoli with a candle in it and sang to her. She is a singer herself and it just made her night so special! Such a fun place to go!
Our wedding anniversary dinner was special and memorable. The last time we at the Victor Cafe was on the night of our engagement many years ago. It was just as special as it was all those years ago.
I went here on a date this past weekend, and loved it! My two favorite parts of the experience: live opera performances from the waitstaff and the upstairs lounge/bar. The ambiance was great and it was the perfect authentic Italian experience.
We can't say enough good things about Victor's. We simply love it, the food, the staff, the singing, the ambiance is unmatched.
Food, service and opera singers were exceptional. Enjoyable evening and highly recommend.
Wonderful ambiance and service- very festive and fun. A unique atmosphere and experience- and I mean that positively. I didn’t love what i ordered- ( it was ok) but my dining partners meal was FABULOUS ( a special). Would definitely recommend and go back.
