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!
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!
Overall great service. You can tell the staff is very well trained. One waiter, however, did lack a bit of common sense at the beginning, seemingly impatient, and ignored a question from a member of our table. Obviously when it was time to pay the bill (and the tip), he suddenly became extra nice.
The food was delicious and the drinks were amazing! We were seated right on time. The service was excellent and the servers went out of their way to take care of us. We certainly got our money's worth. this is definitely a do over.
Great place within walking distance of our theater. Food was great and our waiter very very helpful in choosing our entree’s. Celiac friendly. Would definitely highly recommend!
I chose this place because I wanted Cuban food and didn’t want to eat at a chain that was also in the theater district. So glad I did. A bit pricey BUT you get the service and quality that you pay for, so I cannot complain. My cousin had salmon, and I had a dish with two kinds of ropa: grits and vaca....so delicious! If you are looking for a place that will give you giant portions of mediocre food, this is not your place. If you are looking for a place that has class from the minute you arrive and get addressed by your name, a lovely coat check lady who opens your coat to help you into it, and a waiter who reminds you to try the beans on your rice because it tastes sooo good, then this is the place. Caring, friendly staff, wonderful food with fresh ingredients, food that is obviously cooked to order and NOT reheated for you, cocktails that make you wish the glasses were bigger (but probably good that they aren’t), and a nice unpretentious vibe. And what is that amazing smell coming out of the aromatherapy dispenser downstairs in the hallway by the bathrooms??? Even the bathroom is great! Five stars!!
The food is delicious but for the price, the portions are extremely small.
The service was fabulous as they took special care to make sure we made a 7:30 curtain across the street. The food was just ok. Nothing wrong but nothing special. The paella Mariscos rice was tasty but pasty. We were seated at a table near the waiter service bar with a view of the kitchen every time they opened the door. This was distracting. The restaurant wasn’t crowded - in my mind it should be the table seated last. I hadn’t been here in a few years and probably would go back again for convenience not for real dining.
The food and the service were excellent. The waiter was very helpful about suggestions from the menu. We had Ceviche de Pargo and Salpicon de Mariscos to start
Both of us had Vaca Frita al Mojo Agrio with a side dish of Maduros followed by
Always great! I’ve eaten here many times. Standards are still high!
Fabulous, we were especially impressed with our water pourer! Lol crazy reach and long beautiful pours with no spill! Food and ambiance was incredible.
Visiting NY from Houston, TX I had to stop and had some Cuban food at Victor's Cafe, the food was as good as I remember. We meet some friends there that we haven't seen in a long time (years) so it was supposed to be an epic time! Our waiter just ruined it from the get go, My friend asked what was the fruit mojito of the day and he said passion fruit, to what we both replay we can have that fruit, please do a skinny mojito for both. He brought the Passion fruit mojito like we never said a word, even told him I am diabetic so I was going to have the skinny. But you will think that is common, he didn't hear or remember, mistake happens, etc. But what he does next was unacceptable, made us very uncomfortable and plain rude. I wanted to leave right then, because if you wait tables you need to be pleasant, you represent the restaurant and more so a group of adults 50+ that treated him nice so no reason for him to stare at us with such a hate look on his face for over 3 mins and insisting we order the passion fruit mojito!!! at the end I told him to leave it, and bring the correct one. but honestly he made us feel very uncomfortable and he didn't stop there. We requested another waiter but no such a thing happened. This waiter was slamming our food and drinks on the table!!!. I was really bother by this, needless to say it took away from a real happy occasion. Food was good as I remember, services of that waiter was -5 our of 5, hostess was great and very pretty lady, so my rating is on that waiter bc he ruined our special moment not able to recreate any time soon as we live in Houston. Honestly it sucked and they should have changed our waiter as soon as we complained. He really looked like he needed medication.
Delicious Cuban cuisine. Hostesses can be a little scatterbrained at times. But don't let them be your takeway from the place. Food and drinks are very good.
Always so accompanying. Some of our party were late but we were able to be seated promptly as they arrived. Thanks!
The shining star at Victor's Cafe is definitely the waitstaff! They were absolutely wonderful. There were a few errors with food and drinks but they took care of it right away with smiles and the intention that we should have a great dinner. The decor is lively bright and fun, it transports you to a place far away (not dead of winter in NYC). The food is delicious, albeit a little pricey for relatively simple Latin food. Classic though. So classic and so yummy. Definitely recommend!
Go to place when on NYC. Great food, fabulous service
