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.

Vic's Ratings and Reviews
The sunchokes, the carrots and the pastas (namely the cacio e pepe and the "little purses") were excellent. The burrata pizza was average, would not order again. We were seating right next to the kitchen in the back room which turned me off, but made a Friday night reservation only a day or so in advance, so couldn't complain. Overall, I would go back again with my husband or friends.
I've been to Vic's a few times and always enjoy the place. The food is always good and inventive enough without being too crazy. The sound level is acceptable in this day and age when most restaurants try to chase you out with loud music, and the wine list has enough choices by the glass to keep it interesting. Sadly this last time we had a server who must have been having a bad day and just seemed utterly incapable of mustering up any level of friendliness or even a smile. From our lunch order, the tomato pizza's crust was quite good but the tomate tasted like paste out of a can, the pastas however we're delicious as were the selection of starters we shared. I'll likely be back and if I have the same server again I will hope that she is in a better mood.
We love Vic’s! I had the porcetta, which was richly flavorful, tender, and delicious. My wife had a yummy bolognese with penne, and my dad had the olive oil poached cod. We loved everything. The cocktails are perfectly prepared and a generous pour. The only drawback is that it can get a bit noisy, but the service is impeccable!
Food is really fancy and creative, but I'm not sure if we call it Italian. It's tasty, but if you look for Italian food, this place might not be. Staff is friendly and overall atmosphere is nice and energetic. Good for someone who wants to try "trending" place.
Brisket sandwich would have been perfect had not 1/2 the meat been fat. Brisket is a fatty cut, but this was extreme. Filled a small bowl with inedible fat. Shame, because the actual meat was delicious. Brunch partner’s fritatta was poorly executed — more of an oily omelette - and sausage was less than half cooked. The served thanked us for our “feedback”. The breakfast potatoes were delicious tho. ;-)
Pains me to give an average review at Vic’s, it is one of my all time faves in the city. But our server was pretty awful, inattentive and just absent, we had to flag down another server to take care of us through the night (she was lovely). Unfortunately one of our dishes was undercooked. Just not the best experience and a little embarrassing because we had out of town guests dining with us. The manager on site was wonderful at the end of our meal and apologetic. We will be back but it will be a while before we do.
We had such a blast at Vic's - I always forget about it but this last time bookmarked it permanently in my brain. We asked for the most quiet table possible, knowing it can get a bit loud, and they sat us in the back by the kitchen which was so great, fun, and delicious. We all had a blast, and loved the ambience of the restaurant - but most unforgettably, THE MUSIC. Props to whoever is curating the soundtrack of HS years of millenials / xenniels! Shoop, Dave Matthews, The Proclaimers - Killed it.
The food was incredibly salty and somehow overspiced, an indication it was probably not fresh. The chicken and fish were indeed chewy. The ambience on New Year's was nice, but the music was horrendous and didn't fit at all. I wouldn't recommend this place amid all the other great options nearby.
Perfect for friends' get together and casual dinner date. Delicious food that is reasonably priced (generous volume as well), cozy settings, amazing staff (their service was a 5-star experience - friendly and attentive!), and it was quiet enough to be able to have an actual conversation without having to scream at each others (though people at the next table to us was really loud and distracting but the restaurant itself has a very calm and relaxing ambient and is perfect for catching up with friends over great meal).
The overall vibe at Vic's is exactly what you want for groups of 4 or more. We originally had a reservation for 4, but had a 5th friend join us as we checked in to our reservation. The staff said it was no problem to add a 5th chair, but neglected to tell us we'd be standing at the bar for another 20 minutes. However, it was okay because the bartenders knew how to make a good cocktail. Food was tasty and satisfying on all fronts. We kept it simple: a few appetizers (crispy onions are a must!), a couple pastas (Borsa is mouthwatering!), and a couple pizzas. Vic's is a solid option any night of the week!
Went here for a special prix fixe dinner. Celery root chips were so salty we couldn’t eat them. The main course of poached cod was also inedible - way too spicy. The service was great for the first two courses but broke down as the restaurant became very busy. Not too keen to return here.
