At Vic's, diners gaze at the Minneapolis riverfront through floor-to-ceiling windows while the dining room's furnishings—a Venetian plaster sculptural bar, a fireplace, and exposed wood-beam ceilings—surround them with lavishness. The menu offers equally lavish plate vistas such as Vic's signature lump crab cakes ($14), which preheat appetites for the hearty "V" burger basted in a rich demi-glace ($14). Meanwhile, the crab-stuffed walleye proves good things come in tasty packages stuffed with more good things ($28), and the hefty 1-pound T-bone steak asserts its flavorful independence ($28). Vic's also boasts a wide-ranging list of fine wines often sold at cost that, combined with the restaurant's upscale fare and elegant atmosphere, make it the ideal spot for a romantic meal or a gigantic meal. Guests can stable cars with the complimentary parking available in the attached St. Anthony Falls parking ramp.
As night falls, the lights of downtown Minneapolis jump to life and ripple across the river. The view sprawls out beneath the floor-to-ceiling windows at Vic's Dining, St. Anthony Falls and Stone Arch Bridge extending naturally out before the dining room. There, silverware clatters steady arpeggios on plates laden with lump crab cakes and short ribs. Chefs prepare the eatery's signature fresh Kobe beef burgers and marinate ribeye steaks in Cajun spices overnight. Glasses click together above these dishes, hinting at a lengthy wine list, which fuels romance more effectively than doves released in small-claims court.
