The service (Matt) was great and the meal was fantastic! We were there to celebrate a birthday and I highly recommend it for spending a great night with someone special. The martinis were delicious and the food was as advertised....amazing! Do yourself a favor, check out Vic's....you won't regret it. Having a reservation helped a lot, as they were very busy on a Saturday night and we were seated right away :)

They first tried to seat us in the bar. Rejected that. Then the "wine bar" (room with wine storage on the walls) but this was next to the door and it was cold. Requested another seating and the Manager relocated us to the dining room. I was wondering what it was about my party that they didn't like! But the dining room was fine and had a nice view of the river. Service was first class and the food, although the menu was not expansive, was very good. Nice restaurant over all. Note: the bar has a piano and a singer so it was fine but I believe that a restaurant should give you a table in the dining room when you have a reservation.

This place was great and I am not easily pleased. Came for lunch with two friends... all of us really liked our food. Maybe the best fried green tomatoes I have ever had. Great service and Great views too.

I had the special for that night: Oysters (6) as appetizer and a Fish dish (Mahi-mahi). My husband had SOUTHERN SEAFOOD BOUILLABAISSE. The portions were enough for each one of us. For dessert we shared a slice of Pecan Pie.

The service was impeccable, and our table was close to the windows facing the water. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Vic's is our staple "fancy night out" stop when we go to Savannah. The food is always exceptional--and slightly different each visit. The ambiance is fancy but extremely inviting. You might want to dress up but you might end up chatting with the table next door dressed in jeans and a flannel. The service was impeccable. Our server (James, I think?) was spot on. He gave us plenty of time between visits, knew the menu top to bottom and made terrific recommendations, surprised our birthday girl with a sweet treat, and offered a couple suggestions for post-dinner spots we might like to try. Vic's is worth every penny.

We had a very good dinner and experience. The lamb shank was delicious. My husband loved the white anchovies on his salad but was not crazy about the flavor of the tomato saffron broth on his fish combination but loved the fish. The house wine was good too. Jessie did s good job but the bowl for the fish shells arrived after the meal and my husband had most of the shells on his b&b plate. The small biscuits very scrumptious. We would return if we find ourselves in the area again.

When we pass through Savannah each year as “snowbirds,” one of our favorite lunch or dinner spots is Vic’s. The food and service are usually good, but this time the restaurant was very crowded (Friday night) and service was professional but slow. It also was very noisy (expected on the weekend). Next time, we’ll just go for for lunch.

We had reservations so we were seated quickly. The waiter greeted us promptly and took our drink orders. My friend and I both ordered the filet mignon medium rare. Although the inside was medium rare the outside was a little too overdone. The she crab soup was excellent.

All in all the food was good, however, even though it was after New Years, they were still playing Christmas music and much much too loud.

Always a great experience at Vic's! The perfect place for locals to bring our visitors to really give them a 'taste' of Savannah and our Southern charm. Highly recommend the short rib & shrimp and grits.
Service is excellent!

We weren’t super hungry when we arrived and told the waiter we were just going to order apps and a glass of wine and then decide about the rest. He agreed but was pretty pushy to get the rest our order. We finally gave in and ordered soup and salad also. However, after fried green tomatoes, oysters Rockefeller, soup, and wine we were full and asked for our salads to be boxed. We had ordered them with dressing on the side. After waiting for about 30 minutes for the salads to be boxed (apparently this is a BIG DEAL) we got them, only to see dressing on them. We were annoyed but didn’t want to wait longer. Funny, because the waiter, Daniel, said “they only do things the right way” with a condescending sneer. We ended up throwing away $20 worth of salad. What we are was good but it really wasn’t an enjoyable experience and we won’t be back. He may have been annoyed that we were taking up a table and then not eating a lot but our bill was close to $100 so...

The fried green tomatoes were outstanding, as were the salads. The kid’s meal was sadly way too salty, while the veggie plate was under-seasoned and the asparagus was undercooked. The bouillabaisse was good, especially the Georgia shrimp.
