We went to Victor’s Café to celebrate Brazilian Valentine’s Day (June 12th) and Victor’s reopening post-Covid. We were extremely happy with the experience, from the food, to ambiance to service. I’ve been going there for 20 years now and can’t wait to return.
Our server, Gabriel, was amazing as was the whole staff we encountered. What a great place, glad we went.
Absolutely wonderful; a hidden gem! I highly recommend.
I went to celebrate my friends 50th birthday. The hosts were so sweet. They gave her the best table in the restaurant. We were not rushed at all. We felt very welcomed. The food was amazing and we had a great time. The live band was the icing on the cake.
First time there and definitely going back. Delicious and pleasant experience.
Loved the experience, so happy they’re back!!
The service was amazing. Since the location is big, tables were far apart and it felt safe. The food was good and the ambiance perfect.
La comida no es tan buena y el servicio .... muy pesimo
Everything was great and i was seated promptly after i gave my reservation info. Food was delish
Delicious food, amazing service!
We weren't please with our table and they went out of their way to get us a better table. Great service , great food, great vibes
Still one of my favorite places to eat. Food is ALWAYS amazing and memorable. Waiter are also so nice and knowledgeable. I always have a great experience when dinning here.
Had a great time for my son's birthday, food and drink very good and the service was great.
Always impressed and never disappointed with our experience at Victor’s Cafe! Great service, amazing food and awesome company. We will keep coming back!
the prices are too high for the amount of food that you get. We come here every year when we visit NYC for the Rabo Encendido and it was not on the menu. The menu is different and we will not be back.
Food and service was excellent as it was before the pandemic. We were afraid that the service and food would suffer, but it did not.
Been to Victor’s countless times and it’s always been very good.
This time went for my wife’s birthday. We were a party of 6. They
sat us immediately. Ordered cocktails and appetizers (25 minutes). Entrees took another 30 minutes. We were told there was only 1 person in the kitchen. Desserts and after dinner drinks were not any quicker!
The server was good and attentive. I can see the frustration on his face. Not his fault. I would have thought it would have been appropriate for the house to send a round of complementary drinks. After all the check was almost $700.
Would I be back again? Not anytime soon but probably will
Happy Victor’s reopened.
So wonderful to dine indoors at one of my favorite places, and they totally lived up to their reputation!! The staff was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was fresh and simply amazing - the champagne sangria was delicious!! It was a perfect night!!
Amazing atmosphere & service ! Plus food was amazing !!
So glad that Victors is back! The service , food, and overall ambience are amazing and never disappoint. I can’t wait to see the new outside area. Looking forward to many fun evenings here.
Awesome time great food! Shrimp quesadillas and coconut mojitos are a must!
So glad to finally be back in Manhattan! Victor’s was the first restaurant we went to! So glad they survived the pandemic. Viejo Rosa and roasted puerto were fabulous.
Victors is a Class Act.... I’m so thrilled they are open again.
You will notice they have remodeled the restaurant and it looks amazing as always.
The staff is AMAZING!..... My Heart was full of Joy when I saw some familiar faces.
As you already know the food is EXCELLENT
I was able to get my favorite dessert made especially for me... The Bom Bom Cubano 🤍 which was decadent.
Hands down There is NO COMPARISON TO VICTORS
Pésima atención, muy mal servicio, tardaron más de una hora en traernos los alimentos porque traspapelaron nuestra orden. Definitivamente no lo recomiendo
The restaurant was closed when we got there for are 8 o’clock reservations
Second time coming here and I love the food and service!
The food was excellent! If you love seafood the snapper ceviche is excellent. We loved it so much we order a second one for appetizer.
The entrees were AMAZING. We were not disappointed with anything we ordered.
Excellent venue for either pre or post theater. Excellent choices of entrees and libations. Sangria always pleases!!
The waitress “forgot “ to seat us even though we had reservations and stood exactly where we were told. Two other couples were seated at nice tables and the we were squeezed into a tiny place right in the door way which I don’t think was actually a seat for the restaurant. Told them it was my birthday when I made the reservations. Waiter mixed up our tickets that we identified and all has to be fixed by me calling and being on hold forever to correct the charge
Food and drinks were delicious. Service was prompt - we told them we had reservations for a show. They accommodated us with time to spare and without making us feel rushed. I would highly recommend Victor’s cafe (and already have!)
Delighted to find this place close to our Broadway show. Fish, pork & steak were all excellent along with dessert. Quiet enough for conversation & attentive staff.
Food was great, service was good and great recommendations, live band was good and restroom clean.
The Food and the ambience was excellent. I will return again in the near future
A great find. Excellent food and attentive but not overbearing service. I’ll be back again.
Fun environment, great service. I had a great time and the servers were very attentive and made great recommendations. The food was amazing.
Great place, easy going, beautiful interior, great food.
Fabulous food. Great ambiance! Fantastic Cuban appetizers. I would come back to this restaurant again and again. I love the live music. So fun!
