wonderful food and service – A wonderful dinner, excellent service, pleasant staff, fantastic food. I have a dietary restriction in that I have Celiac disease, which means that I cannot have wheat. When I made the reservations I noted that. I was pleasantly surprised when the chef came out to discuss with me the dishes that might be suitable, which was most of them. I expected that, which is why I chose Cuban food in the first place. I was still pleased as I did not expect that at a NYC restaurant. The Bartolito appetizer was great as was the rest of the meal.
Best restaurant in New York City – dias atras fui a cenar despues del teatro con unas amistades,me dijeron del restaurant de lo fino y ele-
gante que es,fue algo espectacular la comida el ambiente y el servicio fue lo mas espectacular algo
que no nos vamos a olvidar gracias a todos los componentes de este prestigioso restaurant en especial
del camarero que me atendio que hasta ahora me acuerdo de su nombre Mauro.
Una vez mas gracias a todos los componentes del restaurant.
The noisiest place – Well I've been to Victor Cafe before but I?m very disappointed with the service I received tonight. There is really no privacy (mainly because the tables are all so close.) The restaurant was too loud (you couldn't even hear the music.) The waiters where not that attentive, only asking for refills and such, not the classics like "is everything fine." The food took a long time to be served. My friends and I where out of topics when the food came (like 45 minutes later,) I asked if they where fishing my fish on Florida's water. The appetizer was horrible, the bread was as hard as granite, the fried plantains where cold and non-crispy, and the rest of the appetizer was just horrible. My fish (to be honest) was ok, my friends thought their food where fine, and my son said his sweet plantain was cold and not cooked properly. I really don't recommend this to anyone unless they are starving or they are hearing impaired.
Mojitos delicioso! – My birthday dinner last august. Make reservations as this place is busy. My boyfriend and I loved it! Great food, service was friendly, my 1st night in new york was made very memorable by this place. Delicious mojitos, great desserts. I highly recommend, if you're going to the theatre, its right there in the district.
Great service and excellent food! – I highly recommend this place if you're going to watch any Broadway shows -- perfect location and the food is very good. I love their specialty ropa viejo and the mojitos are good too!
Average Cuban food made better by friendly atmosphere – The Cuban food here was average. I had the ropa vieja and flan which were delicious if not memorable. The resaurant was well lit, gorgeously designed and very friendly. The amosphere promoted mingling and looks like a good place to relax afterwork or a broadway play. The overall dining experience was well worth the visit. However, for the discerning foodie, you would be a little upset at the fare.
Nice Choice! – Delicious, authentic Cuban cuisine.Perfect location, very nice ambiance and attentive service. What more could you ask for? Oh, the drinks were very good as well. Highly Recommended.
nice atmosphere, ok food – I dined here after watching a Broadway show. Food was just ok. Actually, it was wasting of money compared to the value of food. My boy friend had a beef dish.He kept mentioning that we could get better beef dish from Chipotle. Also, a cup of Sprite was $5.
However, the atmosphere and the service were nice.
OMG, Sooooooo Yummy! – I have been to this restaurant a couple of times, and I must say every experience has been a truly great one. The food is phenomenal (I am especially fond of the ropa viejo) and the sangria is probably the best I've ever had. In addition to the wonderful food, the waitstaff is extremely courteous and shows the perfect amount of attentiveness, and the decor is lovely. Overall, the atmosphere is very warm and inviting. There is a bit of an intimate vibe- perfect for a date or even dinner with friends. I really love this place and will definitely return. I highly recommend checking it out.
Outstanding Cuban Cuisine!! – I have been to Victor's twice, and enjoyed fantastic food and cocktails both times. The mojitos in particular are delicious---be sure to try the Coconut Mojito, which will transport you to a sun-drenched tropical island with just one sip. The food, whether it's the Red Snapper, Vaca Frita, or one of the various types of plantain dishes, is excellently prepared and divided on the menu into traditional and more modern types of fare. The decor is lovely, giving the restaurant a tropical yet sophisticated feel that is enjoyable for both romantic dining or meeting a group of coworkers. The only drawback is that the restaurant can be quite busy, so make sure to call ahead for reservations so you won't have to wait for a table.
