    The menu posted on Google was not what was actually offered at the restaurant. My guess is that it is an older menu and no patrons have submitted any new pictures. The prices were also a lot higher than the ones that were posted in Google. We did quite enjoy our meals though. The chef was amazing and we had a very good experience.

    We were looking for a special place for dinner after a movie at TIFF on Christmas Eve. We came across Victor after searching online for something open and it was a lovely surprise. Beautiful room and our food was flawless. There were not a lot of other diners and so it was pretty quiet but the playlist was all cheesy Christmas tunes and too loud. That is my only complaint. Having said that, I did not ask them to turn it down and I am sure if I had they would have obliged… so perhaps not fair to criticize. Watch out …. it’s pricey. But for us on this particular night it was worth every penny.

    Love this restaurant for its charm, ambiance and its quiet nature that allows for great conversations. Not to mention our server Nathasha who is truly one of the best servers in the city. The perfect balance of service , friendliness and anticipation. Perfect place for a date night, business lunch or after work drink with a colleague.

    Food was bland and unexciting. We had the duck, sea bass and pork belly. The pork belly was by far the most delicious. The vegetables were bland and needed at least salt. Some were over cooked and mushy

    We booked a special date night at Victor and had no regrets! We started with the yellow fin crudo, which was very light and refreshing. The duck breast and scallops were tender and filling. At first, I thought that $50 for scallops was overpriced, however they were very large and perfectly cooked so it was worth it. The heirloom carrots were ordered as a side dish - nothing special but still tasty. The vibe was so intimate and very quiet, but we still felt comfortable to talk casually. The service was excellent and everything arrived to the table in a timely manner. I do wish the menu selection was slightly larger with more options of all sorts.

    It was a nice, quiet dinner at Victor. It is a small restaurant inside the hotel. The menu is not very extensive, but the options are fairly nice. I would say the menu is more Modern than French in terms of Modern French cuisine.

    My fiancé and I tried Victor for the first time for Valentine’s Day. We absolutely loved it! The food was really delicious and not bad value for what you’re getting. The space is small and quaint and it was busy but not too busy that it was crowded. Definitely recommend for a nice date night and we would for sure go back.
