1st time in Toronto and tried this place due to availability of a table for 5 on a Friday night and my lack of planning. Only 2 other tables were taken at 6.30 on a Friday, so I suspected I’d chosen a dud. Absolutely the opposite. Food, service and ambiance was excellent (though obviously if you like quieter). Don’t understand why this place was not booked solid, except for maybe the side street location. If you are looking for an intimate location with top notch food and service, look no further

We had a lovely experience. My sister and I treated my mum to a pre-theatre dinner at Victor. Yummy cocktails, fantastic food, and outstanding service. We all had the lamb shank with polenta - large serving and perfectly done! Shared a pecan square for dessert - perfect sweet finish to the meal. Not too busy or noisy. Walking distance to theatre. Highly recommend!

Service was impeccable! Seriously so much thought and care delivered...from excusing themselves for over reaching to get to dirty plates to giving us background on the decor! Hand written thank you on the bill 😀Food was tasty, warm olives, scallops, pecan dessert....yummy!!

Service was very attentive. Corner table very comfortable and great for conversation. Charcuterie board was delicious and great for sharing. Burger tasty. Lamb shank flavourable, but the sides were too watery and thin in consistency. Overall a very nice restaurant with personable staff.

Victor was very quiet, no nice music for the ambiance. I had looked up the menu and saw there were a couple steak options and when we got there, there was only one expensive option. I ordered the pasta with short rib which barely had any short rib in it. There were multiple burnt out lights on the ceiling... overall would not recommend compared to all the other more upscale restaurants there are in TO. Too bad because it could have potential! Service was good though.

Victor is an absolute hidden gem in the entertainment district. The ambiance is upscale and refined. The service is phenomenal as the staff are so friendly and attentive. The restaurant is tucked away on Mercer just south of King St West and is the perfect spot if you’re looking to have a quiet dinner in the middle of downtown. Highly recommend for a last minute booking on a Friday as it’s often easy to get a table without much notice. Thank you for a wonderful, easy dinner!

My fiancé and I were in town for a couple days and had dinner here before seeing a comedy show at second city. The food was delightful and I loved the ambiance. Definitely would recommend this for a nice dinner/special occasion! Great spot! Also, the Victor gin and tonic was pure deliciousness! Thanks again! Great staff as well

We were staying at the hotel and ate here because it was convenient. So glad we did. We ate outside because it was a beautiful August evening. Even though it was a little inconvenient having us outside the service was excellent and the food great.

The most delicious burger I've ever eaten, hand down. It was very pretty inside, but super quiet and empty (730 on a Friday night) Our server was great, food was delicious.. just wish it had been a little livelier!

We often come to Before a show, not only because it is close but because the food is so good. Our server Laura was really friendly had great wine advice and made sure that the timing of the meal had us out in plenty of time for the show! Also, best burger in town!

It's a very lovely restaurant. The staff were so very attentive. Food was simple, fresh and delicious.

We moved into the library bar after. Although it looks cool the seating was very uncomfortable. They need cushions!
I also found the bar to be seriously overpriced.$25 for a vodka martini is just crazy.

Second time there. Staff was excellent-no complaints in that department. And I like the ambience. But...this time had the hanger - steak frites. The meat was done perfectly but come on guys do something about the presentation and take it easy on the herb butter!
Last time I had the fish and friends had the burger and the masala. No complaints.
Just my two cents.

My husband was staying at the hotel, already enjoying the convenience and quality of the meals. He decided to have a business associate join him for dinner. I requested and was given a corner table by a window, which we were very pleased about. Everything about the meal went well, and we will definitely consider planning in this way again.

Jeff, our server, was very pleasant and professional. Unfortunately my companion had to return their entree as it was cold - but was replaced with a plate of steaming pasta in short order. Luckily we had time to wait.
Personally I was surprised and disappointed at the amount of mayo on my ceviche!
Although dessert was excellent I felt the serving was a bit small - not really appropriate for sharing.

I tried for the first time Victor restaurant to celebrate a special Birthday with my husband and friends. From the minute we came in the hotel we were welcomed with a friendly doorman, then the server at the restaurant - the great experience continued the entire evening. From the decor to the service, ambience, food, value- everything was above my expectations. I would and I will make Victor my new destination and definitely put on top of my recommended restaurant list. Thank you for the great evening.

victor restaurant was by far one of the best restaurants ive had yet in toronto, the food is outstanding and so is the service. the servers were very kind and made sure to attend to anything you need if that wasnt enough the presentation to the food and taste was beyond amazing, id recommend this restaurant to anyone especially on a date night or night with friends looking for a far better experience than casual dining.

Food was severely under cooked and in edible. Service was slow and awful (we were literally the only table in the restaraunt). And there was no gesture even made to try and correct things until after the bill was paid ... No, we don't want another raw burger ... To many good restaraunts in the area to ever go back here
