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

After 5pm mass at the cathedral, our family gathered for our traditional Philadelphia Christmas eve dinner and this year we chose one of our favorite restaurants, Victors Cafe. We started upstairs at the kitschy RCA Victor dog decorated bar as our bartender ran down to sing his operetta and back up to serve us a drink- bravo! Then all 12... More

Enjoyed an evening out with a large group. The service was great and came with smiles and songs. Wait staff sing opera approximately every 10 mins. A short synopsis about the song is provided and they they sing, and do an amazing job. It may seem like that may be a lot of opera however, we did not find that... More

If you are ever in Philadelphia (or live here), do yourself a favor and go to the Victor Café. I rarely give 5 stars, but this restaurant deserves it. The food was excellent and as an Italian I am super picky. Everything just brought this experience to perfect....really! We were here for Christmas Eve and could not ask for more.... More
