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.

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.

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.
