Recently had dinner at Victor Café with a group of about 20 ppl. I had never been to Philadelphia before so wasn't sure what to expect. Victor Café was really a unique and incredible experience. The food was very good. The history of the restaurant is very interesting (used in the Rocky's films) and all the servers are opera singers.... More

Great food and excellent entertainment. A bell rings and your server sings a beautiful song. No where else like this.

6 of us went for dinner. Love the concept of live music but food and execution weren't great. Singers/wait staff are very talented but they sing too often and ask you to keep quiet while they sing so makes for disjointed dinner. Most importantly, the food is very mediocre. Not sure they know what risotto is. Seafood risotto was some... More

We thought that the entertainment was great, but if your going for a good meal, don't bother. The appetizers were average and entree's were mediocre.

Had an early reservation, thought that would be an easy in and out to beat any crowds, not the case. Server was polite and attentive, and it was a positive and unique experience to hear them singing the opera. However, it is obvious that this slows down the food delivery process. After receiving our appetizer, which was just one bowl... More

We had reservations for our group for a special occasion several weeks ago, received a phone call the day of our dinner stating to be on time because they had a full house, I appreciated the heads up because sometimes we have arrived at restaurants 5-10 minutes late. The Staff was so talented entertaining us every 15-20 minutes singing opera.... More
