About Vic's

In October 2014, partners Victoria Freeman, Marc Meyer and Chris Paraskevaides (Cookshop, Hundred Acres) introduce diners to Vic's on Great Jones Street in NoHo. Vic's resides in the re-imagined former space of Five Points, the restaurant that Freeman, Meyer and Paraskevaides opened together in 1999. After 15 years, the restaurateurs decided to renovate the space and the result--Vic's--is an entirely new establishment. Chef Hillary Sterling (A Voce, Lupa) presides over Vic's locally sourced Italian dishes, including house made pastas and pizzas (made with New York State flour) and market-driven plates of antipasti and entrées. Vic's is open 7-days a week.

Great food, great atmosphere. But it was really noisy indoors, so we moved to an outdoor table. Our waiter was excellent, knowledgeable and personable. A good time was had by all.

Second time at Vic's. First time I made the reservation, so my first comment. Outstanding from beginning to end. We were relatively early on a summer Saturday night. We had a great corner table and it was quite quiet. Noise level increased as the restaurant filled. Food was teriffic. We shared the wonderful buratta appetizer. The better half had tuna. I had hanger steak with salsa verde. Both were great. Shared an afogatto for dessert, way more the the usual scoop of ice cream and a shot of espresso.

I'm going back soon!

Brunch was superb! We all loved our meals.
It was the server's 2nd day. He was friendly and engaging. An asset to Vic's for sure. (I think his name was Jason) Even though the restaurant doesn't serve dessert during brunch, he arranged a treat with a candle to help celebrate my friend's b/day.
Love Vic's and have been a few times for brunch and dinner.
Vic's is definitely a winner!

Lovely dinner but wish the AC was working. It was so hot and humid outside, and it was equally hot and muggy inside the dining room too.

Vic's was a very solid choice for our weekday dinner -- the service was attentive, the food was thoughtful and unexpected in appealing ways, and the price was decent for the quality. The noise level was a bit above what I would have liked, but I was willing to tolerate it to experience Vic's other charms.

Great, attentive staff. Felt very welcome, despite our group's fluctuating head count. Delicious food. Garlic bread is amazing, as are the borsi. All the pasta was great - very delicate and flavorful. Cocktails were great too. Had a great time and we all agreed we'd go back!

My wife and I were on vacation in NYC and a chef friend of ours recommended Vic's for our last evening. We couldn't have been more pleased. We had a reservation for 5:30, but arrived early and had a couple of delicious cocktails recommended by the extremely nice bartenders. Once we were seated, we had an extremely accommodating waiter, and we shared the garlic bread, which was probably the best I've ever had, and the burrata, which was also great. We shared our mains as well: the cacio e pepe, which was fantastic, and the ravioli, which we have yet to stop talking about. Finally, we finished with dessert: the semifredo (which had delicious bits of honeycomb) and the arrogate, which were both scrumptious. 10/10.

We had a great meal at a great price. We ordered a salad and a pizza and it was more than enough for two people. Plus the bread and seltzer that we had were complimentary. Wonderful wait staff and great food made for an enjoyable pre-concert dinner.

I've been to Vic's many times mostly for brunch and have always enjoyed myself . Service is great ambiance better (albeit loud) and food very good. This was my second time here for dinner and have to say was quite disappointed with my meal. I ordered the scallops which I was hesitant about bc scallops need to be cooked perfectly. They were spongy and chewy. The salad we had was drenched in too much dressing. My friend had pizza which she said was really good. I find the options at dinner not wonderful (wish they had more protein options) but if u go stay away from the scallops. A little pricey too. But love the experience and outside seating is great for people watching but be prepared to sit on top of another table.

This was my second time at Vic's within a month. The food is really incredible and the space lends itself really well to a long, leisurely dinner. The wine list is a bit limited. Our waitress could have been more attentive but was clearly very busy.

We could have made an entire meal out of starters alone. One of our favorites was called a farinata, which was like a semolina mini-pizza. The taste and texture were ethereal. Our other selections were delicious, as well. Our server was friendly, helpful, and attentive without hovering.
Overall, the meal was excellent.

Great food with good veggie options. Really enjoyed the crispy onions, the artichokes, chicken and the little purses pasta. The carrots were burnt instead of charred and the sopressata pizza was mediocre. The bread was delicious. Dessert portions were large and tasty but very sweet. Service was efficient. It got very crowded and was loud but somehow we could still hear each other pretty easily. Overall, enjoyable.

We picked this place based on the name, we were meeting family for a dinner and our friend's dad's name is Vic. The menu selection looked great from the website, it was hopping when we got there on Sunday afternoon. We were seated in the back and our waitress Brimley took really good care of us. All the food was excellent and the service was too. Will definitely go back, found a new favorite!
