Since 1963, Victor’s Café, a family-run New York City neighborhood gem, continues to be a culinary voyage to Cuba offering an incomparable experience with its harmony of authentic cuisine, warm hospitality and stylish environment. It has the unique distinction of being both luxurious and casual, serene and high energy, family oriented and romantic, exotic yet familiar.

The cuisine at Victor’s includes the most delicious, authentic dishes combined with the restaurant’s exclusive creations that represent the evolution of Cuban cuisine. Signature dishes include Victor’s famous black bean soup, shredded beef (“Ropa Vieja”), and roast suckling pig (“Lechon”).

The restaurant itself is divided into three spacious dining rooms, accented with warm lighting, colorful Cuban art, tropical ceiling fans, and lofty sky-lit ceilings. Its Cuba Lounge is intimate and warm, featuring a tapas menu and a variety of Cuban cocktails such as Mojitos and Sangria.

The experience would have been much better had the service not been so horrendous.

Stumbled upon this place which was very close to Time Square, crazy! Affordable, would be great with a group. Plates are larger than tapas and good to share. Live music came on when we were ending which was unfortunate as we would have liked to enjoy it more. Would come back again!

First time. Best Tostones I've ever had... truly perfection. If I must be honest, the sangria was overrated so I won't get that the next time. I love the shrimp and grits and the service. The ceiling décor and the fans I just stared felt open and serene, while authentic and warm.

Excellent food and great Sangria. Nice menu options. Friendly staff and beautiful decor. Great place to dine that’s not out of the way from Broadway and shopping. Well worth a return visit.

I booked a company dinner here! Food was great, but honestly a little bland. I was hoping for a bit more flavor and creativity here, since I’ve seen comments mentioned on Eater and Opentable. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. Unsure if they were understaffed, but the restaurant was not very busy but service took quite a while. I wouldn’t recommend eating here if in a hurry or on a schedule. Ambiance was enjoyable and calming, especially since right near Times Square. I’m an out-of-towner and enjoyed my meal, but likely wouldn’t make a special point to return if visiting again. Overall good food, good atmosphere, and okay service.

Victor's food was delicious. We had the PONLE ROPA A LA VACA the Ropa Vieja and Vaca Frita Duo. It was really very good but the portion was small for the $30 price tag. The Yucca fries were amazing with a savory dipping sauce that we loved. The Arroz con Pollo was also delicious and a more ample portion than the Ropa dish. Good cocktails, great atmosphere, and top notch service.

Loved the layout of the place. The service from the hostess to waiter was incredible. Made every effort to make sure we were well and enjoying our meal and stay. Food was excellent and desert was amazing. Definitely returning.
