My last two fine dining outings just happened to be at Vivo in the west end of Edmonton. The food is utterly divine! I love that they source their ingredients as locally as possible and cure their meats in house! As an admitted foodie, who has become increasingly harder to please as I dine out at the best of the...

Make sure you have the grilled romaine salad. Food is excellent, service is excellent, atmoshere is really nice .... really nice decor and open. I miss the old 80's restaurants where you had some privacy ...... so it's hard to please me ..... but you don't get that anywhere in Edmonton anyway ... so ... ya ... it's really nice.... More

In the elegant setting, you build your own dinner from a selection of freshly made salads, pastas, veggies & meats. The Caesar salad is unusual but fabulous. Some of the meat dishes take time to prepare so dining is at a leisurely pace. The portions are a fare size so it is wise to consult your waiter when planning. We... More

Vivo is a little bit out of the way in our normal travels in Edmonton but we were certainly glad we made the trip out to the west end to it. We sat at the bar and watched the chefs cooking which was really interesting. I would have went home happy and raving about Vivo if I would have stopped... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Vivo. We had a great evening with really good food. We sat at the Chef's counter where we were entertained by all the activity that goes into running a kitchen (well the fun part, not the cleanup). I was so impressed by the care and attention that the Chef and Sous Chef... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Edmonton! We always enjoy everything we have at Vivo. We have taken many family and friends to enjoy Vivo with us, and all of them have been back! Everything has a fresh taste and good flavour. We often take a fettuccine alfrado home with us too, because we want as much as... More

Vivo in Edmonton should rank as one of the Top restaurants in Edmonton. Although the location in a strip mall is obscure, it is close to the proper demographic who would readily frequent the establishment. The décor and mood is modern but cozy, the open kitchen allows the aromas to permeate throughout. Their wine selection is truly superb, the menu... More
