Vickers Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Top quality ambiance, service, & food. Bar is comfortable with knowagable bar tender, who can make a great Martini! The live music adds to the ambiance & upscale atmosphere.
The only negative is the price; which seems too steep over all & extreme for drinks.
We have been to this restaurant about 10 times over the last 5 years. Half of those occasions have been Christmas eve, one was New Years eve and the other 4 were regular Saturday night dinners celebrating personal events. The ambience is lovely and the food is top shelf. However, the prices have steadily increased. Our dinner for 4 was nearly $500 on Christmas eve. This included 4 dinners, 4 salads, 2 desserts and 6 glasses of wine total. With a tip we were up to $575. Our family earns a great income, but this place has become far too expensive for what the portions and quality of food you receive.
it was very busy at lunch during the holiday season. Service was excellent , food delicious. the restaurant was full so was noisy with everyone celebrating the season, around 130 pm clearing and became quiet and was quite pleasant. eager to return. escargot excellent. beef delicious, there were no complaints with any of the ordered entrees. anxious to return.
I was disappointed. It has been a while since I was at Vickers and I can say, I will not be back. The price for what you got was inexcusable. Our lunch for 4 people was 200 dollars. Seriously? And the food was nothing exceptional. Save your money!
I thought the food was great, both preparation and menu selections.It's unusual I find a menu that I have trouble deciding between five or six things.service was so-so maybe the waiter was having a bad day.Bartender was great .overall experience was well worth while.
Sadly we were again not impressed with the either the quality of the food or the service. Years ago we visited often but over time the mediocre experience and inflated price sent my wife and I elsewhere for fine dining. We decided to give it another go this past weekend and found that nothing had changed. We won't be back.
Celebrated 25th anniversary with my wife on a Saturday evening in late October. Vickers is a quaint and historic restaurant in Chester County that features fine cuisine in a casual and quiet, but elegant setting. We had drinks in the intimate bar area before dinner. Both the Escargot and Quail appetizers were outstanding. Bison entrée was extremely tender, tasty, and delightful. Apple strudel with vanilla ice cream was the perfect finish. Live piano music throughout the evening was a nice touch. I would highly recommend Vickers for celebrating special occasions.
Disappointing experience this visit. It was very loud because there were way too many people crammed into the same room. Starters were delicious (bisque and chopped salad). Entrees were not great. Steak was served extremely rare, though I requested medium rare. This was corrected, but the filet was just ok. Veal entree was fatty. Service was only fair. Server tried, but he just had too many tables.
An amazing dining experience, our fifth anniversary spent with our daughter and her fiance. The food was beyond description and we enjoyed sharing the appetizers so we could all enjoy the opportunity to taste everything! The proteins were cooked exactly as requested, and we had a wonderful array of flavors in each dish! The mushroom and asparagus appetizer was the favorite, and I loved the beef Wellington. My husband had the venison which was so tender it could be cut with the fork and melted in your mouth. Dessert was prepared tableside and a wonderful way to finish to the evening!
Asparagus and mushroom in puff pastry appetizer was excellent. The tempura lobster appetizer was over cooked. The Caesar Salad for two prepared table side was very well done. My wife’s filet Mignon w/bearnaise was under seasoned but cooked correctly. The truffled potatoes had no flavor. My venison tasted like Salisbury steak in brown gravy. Finally, we split a chocolate cake that tasted mass produced and flavorless. I will say, the wine list was very well rounded. Our waiter, Michael, was the one redeeming quality of our visit. He was excellent!
A very pleasant surprise dining at this restaurant. Lovely atmosphere, great food, great service,live music, etc. we had not been for many years - so happy we thought to try again - it is a great place for a special occasion or just eat casual at the bar area - we enjoyed very much.
Quite enjoyable! Everything was delish & service was excellent-responsive, but not intrusive. I had a Moscow Mule which was particularly good & exactly as I requested it. My desire to be away from the air con was accommodated which made me much more comfortable.
