Victoria Gastro Pub
We were a large group with 3 kids under 10. Our server was very attentive and easy going. Great food. We had an early reservation which is probably why it was quiet.
Great pub/comfort food in a nice atmosphere. The duck poutine is amazing.
Had a lovely time and a lovely meal. Food was excellent and service was great.
Wonderful lunch for my mother in laws 87th birthday. Meal was delicious and the manager came out and gave mom a gift card for her birthday to use on a future visit. She loved it!
Food and services was excellent. I would have liked for the waitress to wait for us to ask for the check, it felt like she was kicking us out and the place was not full.
Great food. Great drinks. Most amazing grilled cheese sandwich (lobster!) I've ever had, though the other at the table thought it was too rich.
Will start by saying, didn’t love the hostesses in light of having a reservation. Luckily that was the lowest point of our entire experience. Not only was our server amazing but the food was spectacular as well. Everyone at our table of 5 enjoyed everything we ordered. The manager stopped by at the end of meal and we relayed how excellent the food and service was. Both of them more than made up for the beginning of our experience. Will definitely be back as a family but with friends too.
Food was delicious and waiter was full of great information. We found out about the different events at Manor Hill Farm and may check them out. Corn on the cob with crab and corn muffins especially good. Cinnamon ice cream for dessert is a great choice.
Best food and beer in the area!
This is a great venue with really good food and attentive service. As such, it is VERY popular and well supported. It is highly recommended that you obtain a reservation if you plan to dine here. The only drawback we encountered was the noise level making it somewhat difficult for conversation across the table. Typically they offer an "adult" room which in our previous visits had a much more comfortable noise level. It appeared that there was a special function underway in that area making it unavailable this time. We will not let that keep us from returning, however and look forward to our next outing there.
Not as great as I remember. Seems to be backsliding a bit. Food was a little tasteless but still good, not great overall
Good service and food make this a nice place for after-work drinks or a meal.
My wife and I had reservations for her birthday. Upon arriving we were taken back to what appeared to be part of the parking lot that was covered by a plastic tent. While passing at least a half dozen open tables in the main dining area.
We were seated at a table againt the plastic wall, the floor was uneven the plastic table was not level and very wobbly. It was rather cold as it was in the middle of February. In the corner was a large and noisy space heater that would imtermittently go on and off.
We asked our server if we could move. He immediately, without as much as asking anyone, said "no" and we would have to get on a list as if we didn't have reservations. We reiterated that we had reservations he said sorry nothing could be done. We of course left immediately.
I could see if we had no reservations and the indoor restuarant was at capacity. Why make reservations to sit in a converted parking lot under a plastic tent in February?
Maybe the most shoddy, callous, uncaring, customer unfriendly restaurant I've ever encountered.
We made reservations but they seated us in the very back of the patio in February. It was covered but very drafty and dreary. A real contrast to the normal part of the restaurant. It was a very disappointing experience. The food was fine and our waiter was attentive and capable.
Food quality has gone downhill. Steak was tough, burger was plain, fries were not flavorful, tiramisu cupcake was so dry it was almost inedible.
Victoria's is our favorite place for a night out as a family!
This place has gone downhill fast. It used to be really busy and deservedly so because the food was good and service was professional. No longer: the service was very brusque and hurried and not very friendly. We didn’t get water, didn’t have time to look over the menu, etc. When we were eating our appetizer, the main course came so now we had an appetizer to finish while our food was getting cold. At the end, we got the bill before even finishing and the waiter hovered to get us out. I could understand that if the place was really busy but it wasn’t half full (on a Saturday night....) so I don’t get the rush.
The food was not very good either. Cold (see above) and pretty tasteless. Carbonara sauce was watery and disappointing. Same with the Porkloin. Certainly not worth $18 and $25.
This was our last visit. Too bad but I predict it won’t be long before the place folds. Even after dinner, the bar which used to be very busy was half empty.
Waiter seemed a little overwhelmed but did a good job for the most part. Lobster sandwich was fantastic!
best meal my wife and I have ever eaten and service was outstanding
We recently celebrated our engagement with family. The food was excellent and the service was amazing! Most in our party were new to Victoria’s and all left very happy!
It took a long time for our party of three to get our drinks; the appetizers arrived first... Our waitress visited our table twice: to take orders. Fearing she would disappear again, I gave my credit card to her as she presented the check. Food overall was way too salty and quality and portions inappropriately priced.
My first time was a good one. We went for a late lunch on a Saturday, we were hoping to get brunch but it was after just after 2 pm. All of us had entree salads and everyone thought they were good. I would have given 5 for food but we only had salads so 4 it is.
Food and cocktail selection was very limited. Neither of us really enjoyed what ordered.
Great as always! The duck fat fries are incredible and service was great. Always nice to have something a little unique in the middle of suburbia. Gets a little noisy sometimes, due to a nice sized and well-attended bar. But the noise is manageable and pleasant.
Valentine’s Day is a nightmare for restaurant servers. The service at the Gastro Pub was friendly and enthusiastic. I wish there were healthier options for food but it is a pub after all.
This place was excellent, Roy was a great waiter. He actually gave a real opinion on the food when we asked about a couple of plates. I hate when I hear that everything is good, or both options are excellent. He added real value to his service. The desert was also amazing and so were the options from the beer list. If you haven't tried the duck fries yet make sure you add them to your burger or mussels.
As always, the food was great, the service was great. It keeps bringing us back.
Excellent food and selection of draft beers. Service was a little slow and it was a little loud but that may have been because it was very busy on Valentine's Day when we went.
Was told the manager would stop by to see us for our anniversary and give us a gift certificate but that never happened. Otherwise the service was good. Our sever was excellent!
We both had the daily special and it was served very nicely
And both meal were great
A local favorite!
I will begin with the good. My husband ordered the Grilled Corn Elotes for his appetizer and LOVED them (once her figured out how to eat them!!). For his dinner, he wanted to order the Steak and Frites, but they didn't have steak (our reservations were for 4:30 PM...out of steak?). So instead, he ordered Molasses Brined Pork Tenderloin . He really enjoyed that a lot!!! I however, ordered the Jumbo Lump Crabcake and hoped that it would be good. It had no flavor at all and neither did anything else on my plate except for the Sauce Imperial. I ate the root vegetables from my husbands dinner for some flavor. I did order dessert (it was my birthday dinner) ...the Rasberry and Lemon Trifle and completely enjoyed that! I hesitated writing this to you because our son is an executive chef in NY and I don't like to hurt feelings but really...no flavor at all. Sorry
In all the years that I have been eating here, I have yet to have a bad experience. I live in Virginia, but when I am in the area, I make it a point to stop in for lunch or dinner. I had the smoked cured club this visit, and it was fantastic, and of course the duck fat fries are a must.
One of my favorite restaurants in the entire region.
Everyone in our party of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience! Our food was outstanding -delicious! The appetizer of brussel sprouts were ao good that I could have made a meal of them! Our drinks were perfect! Our waitress Rachel provided excellent service and had a wonderful sense of humor with our crowd. She definitely enhanced our great time! Thank you Victoria’s!
Food was awesome !
First visit. Overall Good. Restaurant was very busy and our reservation was delayed. The staff handled it well and kept things moving.
Everything great overall, but drinks did not arrive until after the food.
Great food always!! Tia gave us Great Attentive and Friendly Service!!!
Service was great but heir brunch menus needs some updating. Nothing special about it.
