Editorial review from Citysearch 12/14/2012

Great staff, great draft specials and the food was pretty good too. It felt kinda British and I felt kinda at home there. Is great for late chit-chat and meeting the locals. more

no attention 10/16/2009

they forgot a food order completely for out table of 4, we were the last to sit, around 9PM weekday night then they delivered an overcooked hockey puck hamburger, with no apologies whatsoever Pros: ok atmosphere Cons: forgot our order more

Not bad 7/20/2009

The food items are carefully crafted and quite delicious. I had the Baked Spaetzle with Gruyere... it was without a doubt the best mac-n-cheese I've ever had. The other foods looked good. Pros: Best Mac n Cheese I've ever had Cons: A little dull more

Killer Beer Great art 10/2/2008

Been to this place every other month since it opened. Good food, better cocktails each time I go. Everything is killer but the waiters. Where the hell did my buxom dream Amber Lee go? more

Cool, but no thanks 2/29/2008

The surroundings are awesome -- the people are not. The beer selection is fantastic for the adventurous non-generic beer drinker, wine selections is great, the drinks are par (at best), and the crowd is Y-Generation. It's too bad that the wait staff and bartenders are just plain snobbish. Ugh. Pros: Beer, wine, decor Cons: service bad (can't say anything worse) more

Favorite bar in Portland 11/30/2007

First off I sense this as a spot that is going to get very popular. The cocktails are excellant and the food is really great. I had the spaetzle and I will be back again and again. It is only 5 bucks during happyhour. The beers are always changing and the menu too. Go Go GO! Oh and see the bargirl Amberlee on Wednesday night she's charming and fun. Pros: libations, service Cons: Food menu is a little too formal reading. Seems precotious. more

Erik is the MAN! 4/27/2007

Further than I thought I'd go to eat, but damn happy I went! ""WOW"" after every bite. SUPer impressive pate, duck prosciutto (hello??!! miracle worker, or what?). Prices not enough for the fresh unique food. Great wine list and PLEnty of good spirits. One complaint would be the lack of good service. Had to order drinks from the bar twice since we seemed to be an afterthought to the waitress, and running on empty isn't fun when you're out for dinner. Other than that, GO GO GO! more

Super cozy wine bar with great food, wine and atmosphere! 3/27/2007

The Victory is a great addition to the Division-Clinton neighborhood! It is a friendly place with a warm and cozy atmosphere, excellent food and a nice selection of yummy wines. If you are expecting an all you can eat buffet with TGIF spirit button service, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a low key place with healthy (good for you healthy, not pig out huge) portions of deliciously prepared foods this is the perfect place to go. The mussels are amazing! The spaetzle, out of this world! and i overheard a regular raving about the short ribs, but you have to get them soon cause they are off the menu as of this Thursday. What is nice about the Victory is that although the menu is not huge, everything is good! The days of all you can eat bread is over, so paying a buck fifty for yummy local bread is no big deal if you prefer quality over quantity. I loved the alcohol selection - locally made vodkas and gins - and their own lavender infused vodka - yum! The wine list is equally intriguing and affordable with a nice mix of local, spanish, french and italian wines. What is nice about the list is that Amalie has done alot of the heavy lifting for you by selecting a nice variety of the best wines -so instead of spending all of your time flipping through an endless list of wines, you can focus on drinking and enjoying the wine. It is nice to see a good beer list too - short and simple - with my favorite Belgiums on hand. Expect this place to get even better with time as little changes are always being made and some of the kinks are worked out (the kitchen is a bit cluttered and the bathrooms are not super comfy (candles and some artwork would be nice). I like things simple and slow. I like to linger. I prefer good food to too much food, i like kicked back, knowledgeable service and i don't like to feel intimidated by the wine list. For all of these reasons and more, i will be going back to the Victory again and again and again. Pros: food, wine, ambience, service, selection, portions, simplicity Cons: if you want a huge menu and huge portions this is not the place for you more

Tepid Everything 3/23/2007

I went to Victory expecting a delicious and intimate experience. Instead what I found was an over priced cafe that should be serving breakfast, not dinner. The food was alright, but not filling, and expensive. Bread, for instance, does not come with the meal! You have to buy it, and at 1.50 it seems a trifle to not give it away, but that is the problem with this place specifically; it gives you nothing but a fat bill. The wine list is alright, but the selection is extremely limited. There are so many wine bars in Portland with much better selections of wine, I was nearly surprised that this bar advertised itself as a ""wine bar"". It is like sitting in a cafeteria, so there is hardly no intimate experience here. Also the service is rude, or at best hardly polite. Probably the best part of the place is the Chef. I hope that he continues his successful career, sadly I don't see it happening at Victory. Cons: expensive, bad service, bad location more

Good lighting 3/19/2007

I had high hopes for this new dig in my neighborhood. The atmosphere is fabulous, the lighting and design i wish i could duplicate in my own house. But, the bar service was slow, the wine list and alcohol menu short and the food menu was even shorter. I'm hoping like a fine wine that this place will improve with time . . if it can survive. Great place if you are in look with a nice chill place that has an atmosphere like a coffee shop that serves alcohol. Don't go if you are very hungry or like to have multiple options for your cocktails or reds. Pros: lighting Cons: service and variety more

Brilliant, affordable neighborhood bistro 2/26/2007

On our second visit to the recently opened Victory, we realized that this is what a true neighborhood bistro should be: creative, surprising and delicious small dinners that you would never attempt yourself (everything from spaetzle with gruyere to lamb tongue and much, much more); fantastic starters like house-cured olives; beautiful desserts; wines, beers, and cocktails that you have never had before; cozy and unpretentious surroundings; a genuinely welcoming staff who always leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling; a tiny open kitchen with a single chef; and AMAZINGLY FAIR PRICING. Pros: Creativity, warmth, lack of pretension, surprising menu, ridiculously fair pricing Cons: None that come to mind more
