Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Victor Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.


Unfortunately, the beautiful waiters and waitresses were so understaffed it was painful to watch them work so hard and entertain the customers at the same time.

great food/amazing singers

the only con for me - is that if this restaurant was a byob it would be the best. but thats just me. the waitstaff is very attentive, knowledgeable, come back often to check on you. AND of course, the reason most people come here - because the watiers and waitresses are all trained opera singers! they are amazing and it is so much fun! the portions are large and the food is very tasty. during the week, there is n... view more

Bad waiter ruined it for us

My husband and I chose to go to this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary based on the good reviews found on the internet. \r \r We were greeted warmly and seated promptly when we arrived. I got the impression that the hostess was probably one of the owners.\r \r We were greeted by our waiter an placed our drink orders. Then 20 minutes passed. No drinks. Or bread that everyone else seemed to have. Our ... view more

Entertaining atomsphere

The opera singing waiters make it much more than a dinner. We celebrated my fathers 80th birthday here and brought along our 11 & 13 kids. The short little interludes break up the dinner and make it a night out not just a nice dinner. The owners didn't know us at all but made a special effort to accommodate us.

Incredible dining experience! Great date place!!

Was in town from Texas, visiting a few friends in Philly and we had the pleasure to dine at The Victor Cafe. Absolutely incredible dining experience and a very unique atmosphere. The servers take turns belting out beautiful opera songs every 15 minutes. The food was GREAT as well. We eat out alot, and have all over the world, and our Victor Cafe experience is certainly up at the top of our dining experiences!!\r \r ... view more

We have been to this charming South Philadelphia restaurant a few times and its always entertaining; the food is delicious and the service is very friendly. Wonderful date or family place with valet parking.

One of the last, great, family-owned Italian restaurants around...

Where do I begin? My dining experience at Victor Cafe was nothing short of spectacular. I took a date there a while ago on the recommendation of a friend. This is a place where ""Grammy,"" who incidentally is pushing 90 years old, spends the entire day in the kitchen concocting new specials with the freshest ingredients available. When your server decides to break into song (which he or she will), the music may encha... view more

Charming and Memorable

I had no idea what to expect when I decided to attend the Victor Cafe. A colleague of mine had recommend it a s a must see when visiting Philadelphia. Not only was the service perfect, but the staff's incredible singing talents blew us away. The food was excellent (get the filet, it was ridiculous) and the overall ambiance is something that will stay with me and my guests for a long time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Changes all for the better

My wife and I are longtime Victor's patrons and I agree with the above poster- there are a lot of new faces among the staff at the Cafe.. but I have to say- it's great! To be honest, I was getting a little tired of hearing many of the same arias each time we came, but my wife loves their Filet Maria and so we went last thursday night. To my total surpise I heard all brand new songs! Our waitress did a gorgeous versio... view more

Not the same!

I went to Victor's several times with my date. When I took my girlfriend over the weekend, I was shocked to see so many new faces. The singing was not that great. The food was just ""ok"" - but not great. What happened to this once popular restaurant? I would have to say that I was disappointed. I may return in the future.
