We loved the singing! Our food was fantastic and the wait staff were quick and pleasant. The Tosca had moist chicken and the veal was fantastic.
You don't come to Victor Cafe for the food, you come for the opera singing. Every 20 minutes or so, one of the waiters shares briefly about the piece they're about to sing, and then you enjoy an aria. The restaurant has been around for over decades and feels like a throwback to an earlier time. Definitely recommend for something unusual and a great place to have Happy Birthday sung to you!
We never tried the steak or pork chop, but everything else is excellent.
Great place, great food, excellent service, amazing opera performance. We enjoyed our dinner. My only complain is that they doesn't allow you to take photographs or videos. It was my 13 years old son birthday and I wanted to capture the moment.
Our table was terrible
The rest was good
I do believe it was table 35
The bells , the people going back and forth with the floor moving my chair every time
Not the best evening unfortunately
Servers are very sweet
This extraordinary dining experience is not your run-of-the-mill nice restaurant. When you add up the delicious food, the spot-on service, and the excellent entertainment from the staff, you end up with something that should be on your to-do list.
We had a lovely experience and meal at the Victor Cafe. The drinks in the upstairs lounge were delightful and the red wine with our meal was perfect. The food was very well presented and tasted wonderful. Heather was our server and did a fabulous job. She has an incredible voice and was very attentive! Thank you.
We had such a great experience they we canceled another reservation and came back again the next night. The food, ambience, service was top notch!! The talent of the staff was incredible and so entertaining!! Brenton , our waiter was efficient, professional and so much fun!! When he sang— it was magic!!
We will put Victor Café on our list of go-today on every visit to South Philly!
We have been to the restaurant before and this time we were a bit disappointed. The chicken and grits were lukewarm and the grits were not flavorful. My friend said the same thing about the scallops and shrimp. My husband and his friend were happy with their dishes of liver and pasta and trio of meats and pasta.
Our server was excellent. And thank you for calling about the umbrella that I left there. I have a friend who will be picking it up this week.
The place is cool, good service, and even though opera isn’t for everyone I believe it is fun to watch the staff performing. With that said, the food was disappointing. Veal and Pork chop were very dry, the pork chop was very tough and hard to even cut.
Victor’s was wonderful! We went for my boyfriend’s birthday and the singing was just lovely. The service was excellent.
The opera is what makes the experience a must try
It is such a unique experience! Love the bar upstairs....go early so you can enjoy a drink before dinner.
First time there. Will definitely be coming back. Opera singers were amazing...
Fun, fabulous and friendly. The talented staff and phenomenal food make for an unforgettable experience.
WoW! What a treat when everything goes absolutely perfect! Service was authentic and on point, food was meticulously prepared to perfection, the Opera was out of this world.
This is a gem, make sure you don’t miss out!
Great food, excellent services, and the entertainment was outstanding..
It was a unique and pleasurable dining experience. We were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary, and our server sang Till There Was You to us. Made it more than just a meal; it was an experience.
Great menu, professional staff, cozy atmosphere! Food was excellent and the Victor Cafe ranks as my favorite restaurant for a wonderful dining experience.
Once again, our experience was memorable. We took friend for their first visit and they loved it. This will always be the place to go when we are looking to share the magic of Philadelphia with friends who are looking for the memorable.
I love The Victor Cafe! When I have out of state company I always bring them there. The staff is lovely and helpful, the food is great and the singing is awesome. I have never been disappointed at The Victor Cafe.
Talented singers, good service, and all the dishes ordered were delicious. A memorable night.
The reservation was easy to make & the food was exceptional. Our waitress provided recommendations when we asked. The servers singing arias was the highlight of the evening.
The Caesar Salad was delicious. I was not sure what glass of wine to have so the server brought me a sample and it was not to my liking, so she suggest another wine which was great. The opera was wonderful and we were pleased that we got to hear our server perform. The only disappointment was the entree. We had the Prince Igor, which is penne pasta in a vodka blush sauce with salmon and asparagus. The pasta, sauce and asparagus were delicious however, there was very little salmon. I would still go back.
This is a special place. The opera singing is outstanding. It is almost worth a trip to Philadelphia just go to Victors.
This was an amazing experience and one for a couple or a family. The food was top notch and the staff was both very talented and fantastic servers.
Thank you to everyone for making our 46th anniversary special.
Everyone was fantastic!!😀😀
Such a fun place to have dinner in Philadelphia. The staff is wonderful. So talented and so nice and helpful. Even the car valet was a gem. Couldn't recommend higher.
We had never been to the Victor Cafe before. We went on a Sunday night for a family birthday event. We are not opera fans but we loved the atmosphere and the performances. The food was all very good and good value. It was very memorable for us and I definitely recommend for a unique night out.
Fantastic singing! Omg. And so nice they were. It was my dad’s 90th birthday and they did not disappoint!!!!
We love Victor Cafe. Food is great, ambiance is superb, staff is wonderful. It is always a great experience.
Lovely as usual!
Luciana is both talented and efficient.
My wife loves the place we had a great time the ambience is fantastic
Always love the opera singers!
Un lugar muy lindo , los cantantes excelentes
We have been visiting in Philadelphia and chose Victor Cafe for our anniversary dinner. It was our 4th visit and as wonderful as always. We love the amazing singing, especially the operatic arias.
The food was outstanding and the ambiance delightful. The singing waiters were fabulous! What a delightful evening we had there.
What a wonderful restaurant with such tradition. Never change.
Made my first visit in 1948 when my Dad took me there. Always wanted to return and visited again in the 1960's and 70's. Always something new and astonishment at the talent and artistry presented. Can't help but wish that all of them have the greatest success in the careers. It is also probably the friendliest place in town from the greeting by the valet to the warm welcome to your table.
Always enjoy the blend of food and singing. Service good. Appreciate valet service.
