I know this is a steakhouse and am sure the steak is quite delicious. However, you HAVE to get the crab cake here when you go in. It's definitely a fine dining type of place so wear your best if you go in. We opted to eat in the bar area and sat right next to the piano with the live music. Ronnie was our server and she was excellent all around. They have a TON of wine to choose from and we opted to go with a bottle of Fortnight, which I think is made by Prisoner. OK, so on to the crabcake. First thing I noticed was the perfect sear that it had on the outside which gave it nice texture. There is barely any filler in it at all and the crab was absolutely delicious. They drizzle some melted butter around the cake, which makes it super decadent. What makes it a spectacular crab cake is that they actually top it with another mound of crab so it's crab on top of a crab cake. Amazing!

Definitely order the crabcake when you go in. It's a big portion so if you go with someone, it's a good one to share.

Upon a referral from the hotel, my co-worker and I visited Vic & Anthony's for dinner. We didn't have a reservation, we didnt think it was needed on a Wednesday evening. However, we were wrong. There was a 90 minute wait, or immediate seating at the chefs table.

We took the chefs table and it was fine.

We both had the 24 oz bone in ribeye, it was the best beef I've ever had. Everything was perfect, extremely knowledge staff and friendly too. Live music in the bar area. A+ all around.

On a recent visit, the restaurant was packed but none the less, we were seated quickly and service was VERY attentive. We enjoyed a great bottle of wine for a reasonable price along with a vegetable and steak .In addition to warm and comfortable atmosphere, and very good service, the steaks were beyond good. The steaks we had, were probably the best of any steakhouse we have visited anywhere in the US in the last 5 years. Not sure we understand why they are not rated # 1 in Houston by Trip Advisor as they clearly get our vote.

Our family ate here on Christmas Eve. Wonderful atmosphere, spectacular service, and amazing food. We have a new Christmas tradition. Treated like royalty. Loved it.

Vic and Anthonys is part of the Landry food chain but don't allow that hold you back from visiting this top-notch steakhouse. This place hits all the marks for style, elegance, and quality. Take your date here, and you are sure to score points for style and romance.

Their aged Kobe is melt in your mouth delicious and a wine list that is more of a book than a list. If you cannot find what you are looking for Vic's sommelier will not steer you wrong with his expert opinion.

Our server was excellent, though almost too attentive as he seemed to appear every 10 minutes. I'd rather that than the opposite though. I highly recommend reservations, mine was for 6 pm, and by 8 pm there was not a table open on a weeknight.
