We took my mom here to celebrate her 77th birthday and it was phenomenal. We loved it from the wonderfully talented waiters and waitresses who operatic voices were melodic to the wonderful service to the delicious food! An all around great experience. BRAVO, THE VICTOR CAFE! Thank you so much for making my mom's birthday special.
A wonderful night! I felt like I grew as a human being.
You don’t get to experience places like this anymore. Amazing
Post Valentines Day dinner. The whole night was a perfect 10. Fabulous food! And the singing was off the charts. Can’t wait to go back!!
Didn't realize until we were there waitstaff take turns about every 15 minutes to sing opera, I hate Opera but loved this!! Food was excellent! Only knock was main course took way too long to be be brought to table. Highly recommend. No parking, except valet for $15!! Found free on Google maps at funeral home 2 blocks away.
Kaitlyn is literally the best and most talented server you have! Also, THANK YOU for letting me perform tonight!
Exceptional in all ways - service , food, entertainment and ambience!
This was our Valentine dinner!! Wow!! The food, service and singing was wonderful!! Great wine and atmosphere!! If you are a music buff, particularly opera & love delicious Italian food, Victors is a gem. Valet parking for only $12 bucks!!! Hadn’t been there for about 40 years but will definitely be back soon!!!
The overall experience was phenomenal. Highly recommend for special occasions with the loved one. The singers were all so amazing with incredible dialogue. Everything we ordered was incredible. Will be looking forward towards my next visit.
Incredible place. The wait staff are all professional opera singers and sing every 20 minutes or so. The place was featured in Creed (the movie) and has some incredibly paintings. It was a busy day when I went so there were some limitations (the kitchen forgot to take out walnuts from a dish I specifically asked not to have any in). However, it was valentines day and I know they were busy. I would definitely go again. The owner was lovely as was the atmosphere.
Wonderful atmosphere. Terrific singing. Interesting history. Food not good
Food is not the reason to come here. Sad
Great experience as always. The opera singing waitstaff makes The Victor Cafe one of the best and most memorable dining experiences.
Went for Valentines Day and the limited menu was a little disappointing but expected. I cant eat shell fish so half the menu was unavailable for me. Ive been here other times with the full menu and it is awesome.
Words can't describe.
AMAZING great people
We very much enjoyed our evening. The food was good and attractively presented.
Service was good although they had to work around the music. The singing waitstaff was surprisingly good. Very fun!
Excellent meal. Filet Mignon was slightly over cooked. Asked for medium and got medium/well. Otherwise a great dining experience.
Great food - better than I remembered- and lovely staff. And the singing! Wow!
We went here with family for my birthday. We had a great time and food was excellent.
By far the best restaurant in Philly if you want Italian served at perfect intervals even when it’s packed, with servers standing by with fresh pepper and Parmesan right when you get your meal. The opera was awesome and was great for my boyfriend and I, who was skeptical at first!
Wonderful food and the waiting staff was amazing. The staff sing Opera songs every 20 minutes. It was amazing!
This was certainly a cool experience! All servers are classically-trained opera singers and sing to the restaurant every 20 minutes (not distracting). This spot was also included in the move Creed.
One-of-a-kind experience with authenticate Italian food and talented opera-singing servers.
Unbelievable!!!! Waitress/waiters friendly,enthusiastic singing opera tunes. People getting up to dance during dinner. The entire restaurant enjoying the food and festivities. Will return again.
We love the opera singing. The comfy Lounge upstairs. YES!
We initially selected this place because it was in South Philly which was convenient for us and because it was reasonably priced. However, we were delighted to find the live singing and music was most unusual in that it featured opera, classical music and show tunes. To my surprise, my 21-year old daughter loved it as did I. Lots of interesting photos and memorabilia on the walls and throughout the place made for amazing photo ops. We would not have discovered this gem had it not been for Open Table. The only drawback is the parking in South Philly is very challenging if you don't use valet. Be prepared to circle around the block.
We have been here twice thus far, and most certainly looking forward to many more visits! My fiance and I love The Victor's Cafe, by far a favorite. The food is fantastic, cocktails are great, atmosphere is romantic and cozy, the staff is outstanding with amazing talent. Every mile driven to get there and dollar spent while there is worth it. One of a kind experience, and truly a gem!
It was so unique and special. They paid special attention to the note I left on open table about it being my mom’s birthday and came out with a cannoli dessert singing happy birthday in the most epic opera version. It was very thoughtful and impressive. Love this place!
My husband and I had a wonderful time! We both ordered one of the specials, Spaghetti Rusticana, which included a meatball, sausage and braciole- all delicious. Every 20 minutes or so one of the wait staff sings an operatic piece of music and the 3 that we heard while there were beautiful. Our waiter, Topper, was very attentive and pleasant, and his turn at singing brought the room almost to tears! Bravo!
