Nice place, the food was good, the service was ok, but it was a bit expensive for the portion size. Try Guantanamera up the block for a better value, & a hand rolled cigar on the way out.

We had a reservation for nine before the play and at the last minute we needed to add an additional person...no problem. The staff was wonderful, courteous and attentive. From the soup to the dessert , we couldn't have been more pleased. The atomsphere was warm , inviting and roomy ! A major plus for new York city

I took my friend out or dinner. The service and food were excellent. My parents have been to the restaraunt, and now so have I. I went once and i can't get enough. The hostess, waiter, and entire staff were outstanding. Reccommend: Churrasco & seafood pallella.

I recommend Victor's cafe highly. The aroma of thier cuban black beans can be smelled as soon as you walk by the place. Must try the lobster empanada. To die for. I was born in cuba and thier food compares to my grandmother delious home cooking. Best cuban food I have had so far besides my grandma's. I recommend it highly.

Victor's Cafe is a terrific restaurant, with a wonderful staff. The food, for a higher end latin fusion restaurant, has a good amount of traditional cuban dishes on the menu. I've been to Victor's Cafe a number of times now, and everything has been great every time. The wait staff is always there to cater to your every need, and they always do so with a smile, they take great care of you. The drinks are delicious, I personally love the mojito's. They are a bit strong, but equally as tasty...the sugar cane is a nice touch as well. The appetizers are great. I recommend the Mariquita's with Chorizo (Plantain chips with cuban sausage). The Papa Rellena (fried mashed potato balls stuffed with ground beef) is also a good choice. For dinner, I highly recommend the Bistec Empanizado (thin, breaded, fried steak) with fresh lime, which is made so traditionally, it can compare to your cuban grandmothers homemade version. Something, not so traditional cuban, but very good as well, is the Churrasco con Chimichurri (marinated grilled steak, with chimichurri sauce). Both dishes are so good, you won't want to stop eating them, they are addictive! The portions are very large, but make sure you save room for dessert! My favorite dessert is the Churro's, with three sauces.....they are homemade, and covered in sugar and cinnamon. don't miss out on them! The restaurant is not overly expensive. For a couple, with drinks, an appetizer, dinner, dessert and coffee, it will be about $100 give or take, depending on what you order. Whether you have or have not had cuban food before, it is well worth it! The decor is great, terrific lighting if you prefer a low lit atmosphere. If you can get lucky enough( or request) to sit towards the back of the restaurant, there is a huge skylight, which adds ambiance to the entire space. All in all, I love this restaurant, it is one of my favorite's in the city, and I highly recommend it to everyone.

I've been coming here for years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always outstanding and the waiters are friendly and very attentive. It's the perfect place for a nice, relaxing lunch or dinner.

Had reservation for 7pm - after repeated requests and reassurances that "it won't be much longer" we were seated at 7.45pm. Every dish was luke warm. Quality was disappointing, just mediocre. Noise level was high. High prices for the quality and the wait time.
