Arrived for an early dinner reservation before a performance at Kilbourne Hall and by the time we left at 7:15 tables and bar were packed with a lively crowd. Cozy seating in an alcove near a blazing fire in the hearth was private and comfortable. Beer and wine selection offers plenty of choice, menu options are more limited for vegetarians,... More

We stopped in and were able to score patio seating on a warm spring evening. There is a great fireplace and they had a guitarist/singer which was a great plus. The mussels were great, but the frites were not quite up to Belgian standards. Good beer selection.

Return visit, excellent Belgian beer selection. Lots of specials, mussels, duck, sausage, and all manner of mac and cheese, and especially brussel sprouts. Very attentive service, not expensive, nice local one of a kind spot for dinner and drinks.

We had another great dining experience at Victoire last night before an RPO concert at the Eastman Theatre, a 5-minute walk away. Service was friendly and attentive. Their extensive beer selections have something for everything. And those mussels - magnifique!! plus the frites that come with them with dunking sauces, perfect! The roaring fire in the dining room was perfect... More

From the moment you walk in and stand next to the fireplace you feel warmth in this place. Great service, extensive selection of brews and interesting menu choices at good prices. You have to step down from the sidewalk to enter which gives it an interesting feel. Perfect East End place to dine before a concert or after work.

Finding a place to eat downtown is a real challenge. Saw the ad in the RPO's program for Victoire and decided to give it a whirl. The selection of beer is wonderful. Will need to go several times to try them all. The fennel sausage on a baguette with a salad and fries was delivered quickly so it was still... More

$10.00 Mussels and Fries on Mondays! Duck wings are half price from 2-5 pm. Since discovering this place maybe 6 weeks ago, I have gone three times on Monday for their $10 special and have tried most of the mussel dishes, and I highly recommend. The fries are amazing! I have also had the creme brulee and Brussel sprouts and... More

Our office dropped in here for a seasonal party. It was pretty good, although I did think that the service lagged a but behind the rest of the affair. Still, the bar area is nice and we did enjoy ourselves. I would like to try this place for dinner as well. (They have a nice lunch menu and the food... More

A group of my co-workers and I went to Victoire today, which was my first visit to the place. It was exceptionally good, in my opinion. The inside of the place is "Old World" comfortable, with dark wood, fireplaces, and old-style decor. The menu was a little on the pricey side, but the food was definitely worth the price. I... More
