    Food was bland and unexciting. We had the duck, sea bass and pork belly. The pork belly was by far the most delicious. The vegetables were bland and needed at least salt. Some were over cooked and mushy

    I hesitate to write well of Victor, knowing that sharing a secret will just make it harder to get a reservation. Great service. Every course was delicious and tastefully presented.

    We booked a special date night at Victor and had no regrets! We started with the yellow fin crudo, which was very light and refreshing. The duck breast and scallops were tender and filling. At first, I thought that $50 for scallops was overpriced, however they were very large and perfectly cooked so it was worth it. The heirloom carrots were ordered as a side dish - nothing special but still tasty. The vibe was so intimate and very quiet, but we still felt comfortable to talk casually. The service was excellent and everything arrived to the table in a timely manner. I do wish the menu selection was slightly larger with more options of all sorts.

    It was a nice, quiet dinner at Victor. It is a small restaurant inside the hotel. The menu is not very extensive, but the options are fairly nice. I would say the menu is more Modern than French in terms of Modern French cuisine.

    My fiancé and I tried Victor for the first time for Valentine’s Day. We absolutely loved it! The food was really delicious and not bad value for what you’re getting. The space is small and quaint and it was busy but not too busy that it was crowded. Definitely recommend for a nice date night and we would for sure go back.

    The service was excellent, one of the two best services I've received since moving to Canada. The food was delicious but I find the portions a bit small. Highly recommend the bread pudding.

    The food and drinks were fantastic. The chef was very accommodating for the dishes that we requested to be made vegan. The service was equally as great and the drinks we ordered were not only off-menu, but were probably some of the best versions of our favorite drinks we've had in Toronto. We will definitely be back.

    Ambiance is very nice here. Small restaurant for a hotel but attentive staff. Explained the food very well. Took care of our food restrictions. The sea bass and scallop as a main were both very nice. Oysters in the app were fresh. Prawn appetizer had every nice taste with the crab cake at the bottom. Very indulgent.

    Food and atmosphere were perfect for our valentines day. Our server happily allowed us a more private table switch that allowed us to sit side by side. Food was excellent and prompt, our server was patient and helpful, and wine was half-price on Fridays, which certainly helped with my Valentine's Day spending.

    A pre-Theatre dinner. Dressed up so wanted a restaurant to complement the experience. Local construction, likely to continue well into 2021, didn’t bode well but once inside the hotel, things improved. Very good service and excellent food. Very pricy wine list unfortunately, and the restaurant lighting was on the bright side. Our server made sure we weren’t rushing to get to our performance on time.

    The service was incredible and the food was beyond delicious. I had the burger and it was by far the best in Toronto. They were able to accommodate a large party last minute, which was amazing. The ambience is very cozy and the decor is beautiful. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to go to dinner where you can hear the conversation at your table and eat scrumptious food!

    VictorResponded on January 14, 2020

    Hi Marita, Thank you so much for the lovely words. I always think our burger is one of the best in the city, but i am (a little) biased. We look forward to having you again! All the Best, Kasia
