Vickers Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
My friend and I went for Friday night cocktails and appetizers. It was a snowy evening so it was very quiet. She had cosmos - great. We shared cheese platter (standard), pasta and salmon (great), grilled shrimp (good), and white bean bruschetta (very good). The waiter was extremely attentive and not annoying. It was a comforting and fun evening after the workweek! We intend to go back - at least for cocktails and happy hour menu. She'd like to try a formal dinner there. Me - I'll go along. The menu is classic.
Beautiful setting! Our table was by the fireplace and was lovely. Our meals were nicely presented--the waiter filleted a fish table side--what a talent! I ordered the salmon, good presentation but the salmon was very fishy tasting. Escargot were 5 star.
The bar was very noisy, but the service was excellent.
I love going to Vickers. The food is excellent. The building inside and outside is very historical and elegant. The staff is very personable. The service is great and very professional. This is a great restaurant for happy hour, entertaining clients, celebrating or just to take a break. They have my favorite wine.
While the decor at Vicker's was festive on Christmas Eve the service and quality of food were very disappointing. Aside from taking our order and serving our entrees the waiter did nothing else which was curious as the restaurant was not at all crowded. He did not stop by the table even once to ask how our meal was or if he could bring as another glass of wine etc.There were only 7 tables in the small "porch" area where we were seated and three were empty. I mean empty with no chairs, no place settings, no glass ware. My husband ordered the Beef Wellington medium rare. It was so well done it could not even have passed for a poor piece of pot roast. The crab cakes had little crab meat and were the size of an appetizer. At $38-$40 an entrée this is unacceptable. We have been to Vicker's over the years and always had a pleasant dining experience. What a waste of $160 on Christmas Eve. We have crossed this restaurant off of our list and will never go back.
It was our first time here and we were immediately impressed with the wonderful ambience: from the moment we walked in and were greeted by the coat check person, to the warm and welcoming lounge area, pianist, up to the host stand - everyone was welcoming and on point. The food was exquisite - we had the lobster tempura appetizer, tableside-made Caesar salad, lamb and pasta main dishes, and cherries jubilee, also prepared tableside, for dessert. Everything was excellent. We will be back!
Great restaurant with excellent food and service. We ate in the bar area but the noise level was not bad considering the number of people in the area. Our waiter, Kevin, was gracious, helpful and very attentive to our requests. He never forgot about us as some waiters do. I highly recommend Vickers for lunch & dinner. You won't regret it.
Wonderful special date night venue, handled to perfection by the staff, including special request, waiter could have gotten on board better, but it did not diminish the perfect experience and food quality of the Vickers Restaurant. We are thrilled and will always will remember the night. P.S. both had lobster tails...perfect as well.
