This is the best Cuban restaurant we have ever been to. It couldn't have been more authentic! We are Cuban and never have any high expectations about Cuban restaurants and their renditions of authentic Cuban food. We left Victor's completely amazed about the food, service, mojitos and decor. The ambiance kept us feeling like we were in the Caribbean along with the live music they offered (on the weekends?). We would suggest Victor's to those who truly want what is authentic Cuban cooking and feel. Try their guayabitas for dessert!

This not authentic Cuban cuisine, but a mere replica. Fufu is always made with green plantains yet Victors makes it with ripe ones instead (making this dish sweet and wrong). Their lechon is said to be cochinillo which would be baby pig but it is "not." Furthermore no Cuban restaurant would ever charge $3.00 for a Cuban espresso. It is unheard of! I do not recommend at all!

Whenever I am in town I have to stop by. The smoked ham croquettas are awesome. The drinks speak for themselves. You have to try the mojito and the sangria...The ambiance is relaxing and tropical. Victor's is the "Needle" in the New York "Hay stack"...

My husband and I went there for a late night dinner. I thought the food was very tasty and the Sangria was awesome. The service was a little slow but I thought the great tasting food made up for it.

My dad was a chef in Cuba, so I never go out to eat Cuban b\c I have the best at home. I went to Victor's Cafe unplanned. The atomsphere is real cool, nice, and relaxed. Good for a date or with friends. I thought it was a little pricey for Cuban food. Not so much of a big selection on the menu. The food was ok, I don't recommend if you're looking for traditional homemade Cuban food. Great bread, they bring the tradional Cuban Crackers too. Service is slow but good b\c they don't kick you out either like most NY restraurants. I enjoyed it and have gone back plenty of times.

My family and I go here before/after every Broadway show we see. It's a great place with delicious, authentic food and a super atmosphere. Definitely check it out. The flan RULES!!

I had a great experience here. The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable. They had a price fix menu that was pretty good. The service was sort of slow, but the live music and the great atmosphere made the wait go by. Great place for two, or for groups.
