Since 1963, Victor’s Café, a family-run New York City neighborhood gem, continues to be a culinary voyage to Cuba offering an incomparable experience with its harmony of authentic cuisine, warm hospitality and stylish environment. It has the unique distinction of being both luxurious and casual, serene and high energy, family oriented and romantic, exotic yet familiar.

The cuisine at Victor’s includes the most delicious, authentic dishes combined with the restaurant’s exclusive creations that represent the evolution of Cuban cuisine. Signature dishes include Victor’s famous black bean soup, shredded beef (“Ropa Vieja”), and roast suckling pig (“Lechon”).

The restaurant itself is divided into three spacious dining rooms, accented with warm lighting, colorful Cuban art, tropical ceiling fans, and lofty sky-lit ceilings. Its Cuba Lounge is intimate and warm, featuring a tapas menu and a variety of Cuban cocktails such as Mojitos and Sangria.

    My out-of-town guests were seeking good Cuban food and they said this was just what they were looking for. Staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating.

    I couldn’t tell if the restaurant was understaffed but our experience was disappointing. We waited 35 minutes despite having a reservation. We had to flag down someone to fill our water glasses after sitting a long time. The food was good except the green salad was under dressed. Ceviche was good. The flan and tres leches were very tasty. Our server was very friendly - he was always running so it was hard to catch his eye when we needed him sometimes.
