The food at Victors is basic Italian done very well. Our last visit there had to be more than 15 years ago. Since then we've turned into celebrity chef hunting food snobs. I'm so glad we went back to Victors. The food is wonderful and the entertainment is a huge bonus. Prices there are very reasonable and the service outstanding.... More

Had a lovely dinner with our children and grandchildren here the day after Thanksgiving. The service was outstanding, with our server accommodating the needs and questions of three generations. The food was delicious and the singing was beautiful. I envied the tables that were celebrating birthdays...we will most certainly return for a family member's birthday so we can be serenaded...

This restaurant is a must when you go to Philly. The ambience is great. The food is also good, but the real treat are the servers who also sing opera and show tunes!

The whole experience is 4 starts, they have convenient valet parking, the area is easy to get too, it feels like a 100 year old establishment, and all of the wait staff are quality opera singers who ring a little bell and take turns singing a different sonnet throughout the night. The food is 3.5 stars, not bad not great,... More

I planned a night for my daughter and I for a dinner and what I got was a memorable night. The prix fixe menu was the way to go. Starting with a salad either Caesar or Victor was a great start. Moving to main course, I went with salmon with capers on a bed of lightly cooked spinach and my... More

Visited recently for a birthday and loved the little sitting room upstairs where you can hold court with your friends on comfy chairs and couches and enjoy cocktails before dinner. The food was excellent as was the waiter/waitress opera singers. Even if you think you don't like Opera, if you love music and good food you will love this place.... More

We took friends from Pittsburg and New York City here and had a great time. The food is good and reasonably priced, and when your wait staff sings opera it is really a fun place. Valet parking is a plus. This is a place we would go back to for fun and good food.

The Victor has a unique atmosphere and it reminded me of the old Sea Witch in San Francisco with their singing wait staff. The difference is Victor is about opera and the Sea Witch was about show tunes. In any case, it was good entertainment but slow service. I had the pork chop with the beet salad and Mary had... More
