Lovely outside dining today with food, a bottle of wine, 2 beers and 3 ladies...except for my friend's slimy salad (see photo) that was seriously overpriced at $15.75, on a small plate, without meat, and not as much as a breadstick or even a cracker with it. Waitress was sweet but when manager Sam Grubbs FINALLY stopped by, all she... More

The location is great and the wine is cheap, that's about the only praise this place deserves. The dining room is a seat yourself affair and the tables are incredibly close together. The decor is outdated and cheap looking. Nothing about the atmosphere makes you feel like you're in a fine dining establishment. We waited about 5 minutes to be... More

We went there this past Saturday night for supper. I checked online first to see if reservations were needed. I did not see any information about that so I called. The person who answered said they were not needed and to just come on in and we would be seated. Key words here are "we would be seated". One would... More

I attended a holiday gathering at Vic's in January 2017. It was a very chilly night but the restaurant was beautiful, the food was amazing and service impeccable. Management was very accommodating to our group and everyone had a fabulous time. The location and view cannot be beat. I can't say enough good things about Vic's!!!

Had a nice night out with my wife on a lovely winter evening. Very nice view of the downtown skyline with light snow in the light. Very lovely. Waitress was very nice and attentive. She really helped to make the night special. My biggest complaint was serving size. I had a spinach salad for $16 which should have gotten me... More

Our food was excellent and well-prepared. The service was prompt (roughly 40 people on the patio). Walked to a movie following dinner. It was a good night!

A great spot along the river. Devine small plates of scallops wrapped in bacon and a healthy bowel of mussels. We split the mouth watering ribeye steak with garlic mashed potatoes and fall squash. The dinner was topped with key lime pie made in house. The service was great...thank you Katelyn.

Warm sunny days in Minneapolis are rare and must be enjoyed outside! On the next sunny breezy day, run, don't walk, to the deck at Vic's for a reasonably priced bottle of wine and great people watching! And while there, share a bowl of the rich and delicious crab bisque!

After reading some very poor reviews, I had a 4 course dinner here with my brother because the view was great. I was pleasantly surprised!! There were about 45 people dining, including a rivaled party of 30 or so. The service was excellent. Our waiter (Mike) was knowledgable, friendly, at tentative and great in every way! We ordered the stuffed... More
