I've had the pleasure of eating here twice and dragging my non gf pals along with me. The first time we did parma night, which was superb. Huuuuge parmas, good chips. Really delicious. Also got the popcorn mushrooms which were great, highly recommended and the serving was massive. Next visit we were back for Monday night steak night. Everyone had their steak perfectly cooked to their liking. Calamari was pretty good, serving size was a little smaller than expected. Also got a dessert to share, the sticky date pudding, well made but nothing exciting. The staff are great and super friendly. Bistro was calm and clean. They have a great playlist which isn't crazy loud. The non alcoholic drinks menu is amazing. Multiple options including beer, wine and cocktails. It was fun to have a choice of non alcoholic wines. Highly recommend this venue for anyone. It's great to have a 100% gluten free kitchen which is safe for coeliacs.

Trivia night atmosphere was really cool, and discounting a couple of drinks for the night is smart customer service. Most places don't do that on trivia nights. The chicken Parma was really tasty, however the let down was it has little to no cheese and sauce which is a shame because the chicken itself was really tasty. The chips admittedly were pretty plain too. I don't think it's fair to pay $33 and you get more of a schnitzel rather than a parmigiana & average chips. Chef needs to do better there. The wedges were okay but they were legit like the size of half potatoes. People want crispy wedges not feeling like we are eating just whole potatoes. Some easy fixes and it makes a big difference to enjoying those dishes much more. I would come back and try again though as it was a nice spot. Hopefully they listen to feedback and can at least make the Parma like it's meant to be.

Love The Vic, and with new owners I can happily say it's still awesome...or I would say it's even better than it was. Great selection of independent local craft beers on tap as well as your standards. Food is excellent...loved the Bratwurst and shoestring fries. Footy is always on and they even asked if we wanted the sound on, how nice of them. But you can avoid watching the footy pretty easily if you're not a fan.
My one piece of feedback is that they some sort of noise / sou d baffling...it gets ear piercingly noisy in there when it fills up, it's like the sound bounces around and amplifies.

Thank you to the chef and staff at this wonderful venue. We had such a lovely time and the food was out of this world so delicious! With two entrees, several drinks and mains the price was also excellent for great quality food. Special thank you the staff who are simply amazing people!

Apparently, under new management, this restaurant excelled. A delicious choice of beers and cocktails from the bar. Then we strolled into the dining area, An inviting candle light decor is audilbly but not visually separated from the bar. Yum!! The menu options ... Great meat, and vegetarian and heaps of gluten-free options. The wine choice was fabulous. What a find. Entrees were a succulent surprise. Must have! I followed up with an Eye fillet Steak cooked to perfection and Seasonal vegetables. Our group had lots of variations of meals off the menu, and everyone was extremely happy. The staff were attentive and friendly. A testimony to a great harmonious ambience, many of the guests had children with them, and of course, they have a lovely kids menu. High chairs available. Cocktails were lovely.
Wheel chair access and appropriate toilets.

Really lovely staff behind the bar (sober, gluten free boy, I'm looking at you!). All gluten free menu but very welcoming for all. Great little courtyard plus outdoor tables on the street for the dogs. Parma was delicious! Thanks, team!

Had an excellent experience at the Victoria Hotel last weekend for my sister's baby shower which I organised. The team at Victoria Hotel were SO accommodating; I was impressed with the set up and the fact that we had the whole private dining room to ourselves for the majority of the afternoon with no additional cost. The food was great, the drinks list (especially for non-drinkers) extensive and we felt well looked after! Thanks Victoria Hotel team! :)

Great food, great that it's all gluten free, and great portion sizes (almost too big!)
It is a little pricey compared to most pub meals but that is expected since the food is gluten free.
Staff were friendly.
The lighting inside was a bit dull.

Today our son (who has many allergies) enjoyed his first pub meal at the Victoria Hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the menu is 100% gluten free.
Thank you so much to The Vic for accommodating for dietary needs and allowing mum and dad to finally enjoy a drink and share a meal as a family ??'?

Anticipation was in the air as we approached 'The Victoria Hotel' in Footscray; it's neon 'Carlton' signs cutting through the evening fog like a jet plane through clouds. We were immediately greeted by the meÓtre d' and escorted to our private function, whereupon the festivities titilated us until late evening. As we sauntered to our table, I noted the dining area to be spacious and well lit. We attended the 20dollar steak night. It was a reasonable feast although I ordered 'blue' steak and was served what I would call 'medium rare'.

Still cannot believe this pub has an entirely gluten free menu! Great food, amazing staff, great drinks options, nice relaxed vibe. Even my three non-GF dinner mates loved the food. Bravo!

Steak was cooked well and the Paris Butter was nice. I also had the Duck. Was very nice! The Court yard seating area was nice and cosy.

I'm a local, go here quite often. Love the food.
Always after a good steak night - this place used to have the best steak night EVER. It was the salad that made it, a great big serve of fresh greens and other stuff coated in an amazing orange champagne dressing. I know you don't make friends with salad, but you'd make friends with the queen with this salad. I'd order bowls upon bowls of it if I could.
However the salad no longer exists. Probably the most disappointing event even beyond covid.
I beg you to bring the salad back, PLEASE!!!!! I've never found a salad to compete and now my life is incomplete.
Unfortunately I've decided to move on to another local steak night as it will never again be the same without the salad. Now it's just a small bunch of weird green weeds on top.

PLEASE BRING BACK THE SALAD!!

Food was really good and great portions. Bonus that it was all gluten free! Best part though was the staff. All staff were friendly and gave excellent service. I will definitely be back!!

Lunch at the Victoria Hotel Footscray today definitely did not disappoint. Their new menu is now 100% gluten free which makes it a haven for Coeliacs, and as a non GF person it still tastes completely YUM. Staff were also lovely!
They also have an extensive GF beer range ? This our new local that's for sure! Already planned our return visits with much excitement. ?
