Allmusic.com gave For Once in My Life a 3 star review:
Recorded at the Persian Room of the Plaza Hotel in New York, For Once in My Life captures Vikki Carr’s nightclub act of the late ’60s. Carr scored a Top Five hit with the melodramatic torch song “It Must Be Him” in the fall of 1967. A year later, she showed herself to be a polished and professional show business entertainer. …As a club act should be, this one is a demonstration of the varied talents of its star and a reflection of the times, mixing her own material with contemporary hits and old favorites. It no doubt worked better in the Persian Room than it does on record, but it remains an effective showcase.
