I have been going to Victor's for 6 years but I had to stop going there because it got too expensive. The atmosphere as always is great. The appetizers are not worth the $24.00 they ask for. The mojitos, which was $7.00 when I started going there, are now $11.00 and are not as tasteful. I make them better. When my wife and I go there we spend about $203.00 on drinks appetizers, the main course and dessert !

I took my husband there for his birthday in may of 2007.We enjoyed the evening very much. The food was delicious he ordered the red snapper with avocado and mango chunks and loved it. I ordered the salmon but wasn't too crazy about it. We ordered the platanos and were suprise to see that one sliced platano was almost $8.00 pretty expensive compare to the price of platanos at supermarket.The service was good and atmosphere was great but price for everything was crazy expensive.

Sangria is expensive -- ordered a pitcher and it really wasn't enough for four people...Waiter brought another pitcher over to the table and kept refilling our drinks..Classy right..NO when I saw the bill it was $40.00 a pitcher. Of course they want to refill the glass they made $80+ tax on us on Sangria alone.. and maybe I had a glass and a half. The $26.00 appetizer - don't order it - not impressive for the money. El Sitio in Jackson Heights Queens it just as good if not better..just don't expect Sangria. Victor's is nice but never agin will I go there. My total bill was close to $400.

I had dinner here before going to see The Color Purple. The service was speedy but I wished the server was a little more attentive. He had several opportunites to upsale drinks and I had to practically flag him down to get another one. The oxtails and seared snapper are excellent. I wasn't that impressed with the ceviche but the sausage appetizer was surprisingly good. The restaurants ambiance was pleasing. I will have to come again and sit at the bar.

My family firts time in NY, we took our mother to try Cuban food. Her passion international cuisine. She just "LOVE IT" The service was fabulous, the restaurant was if we were in Cuba's most elegant mansion. Thank you Victor's

I had been here several years back with a group of friends and remembered a few drinks that they made that were phenomenal. I could not, however, remember the food. I checked out their website and stumbled upon their price fixed menu. It sounded like a great deal at $35 for a three-course dinner plus tax and gratuity. Too bad that I fell for the ol' "bait and switch" routine. When we arrived we were informed that the price fixed menu option was not available and would resume on Monday as it was Valentine's Day weekend. No where on their website was this "special Valentines menu" mentioned. What were we to do? We hadn't reservations anywhere else and we had 8 pm tickets to Wicked right after dinner. If you are going to see a broadway show this place is ultra convenient. It's too bad that they know this and are really taking advantage. I am Puerto Rican and I know good Latin food. Their food is good but definitely not worth what they are charging. I had the roast pig served with yucca and rice and beans - $25. Come on! Half of my pork portion was bone. I guess it helps to make the portion appear larger. These people know all of the tricks. I should also mention that my waiter was not very helpful either. Remember the drinks that I so foundly remembered from years ago? Well when I asked him about them he said they don't make anything like that. Then he tried to convince me that I was thinking of some other drink. I told him that it was a coconut milk drink with rum. He said pina colada. I said, no, just coconut milk and rum. He said a coconut mojito. I said NO, it was pure white. Instead of just going to ask the bartender, he was completely argumentative with me. Finally I said, fine, I will have a coconut mojito. He comes back with the drinks and says, that drink was called Saoco, but we don't make it anymore. Ummm...I looked it up...it's coconut milk and white rum. How the heck are you going to tell me you can't make that? Not very accomodating.

Victor's Café I went here for lunch. The atmosphere was excellent. The food was good and seasoned well. I could not get over the prices. Cuban food in Miami is inexpensive. Cuban bread was served with butter on the side. The croquetas were excellent. The black beans were perfect. The chicken was seasoned well. The flan was ok. Overall the portions were small and over priced. • Descubrimiento 1492. Aperitivo Especial Cubano Para Dos $23.00 • Prix-Fixe Three-Course Lunch $24.07 • Croquetas Corral Con Salsa Lulu • Pollo En Manigua • Flan De Huevo Miami Transplant
