Best Birthday dinner ever!

My daughters and Mom took me to Vivo for my birthday dinner this year. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Meals are served on boards for all to enjoy. the flavours were amazing. I highly recommend Vivo.

Being Italian I get very offended when restaurants claim to be authentic are the absolute furthest thing from it. This is one of the worst places I have ever eaten at, and that's being polite. It's dishes have nothing to do with Italy except for the names. This place would be perfect in a mall food court at best.

Enjoyable dining experience. Food is served more as a family sharing style. Can also bring wine and pay their corkage.

My wife and celebrated our 20th anniversary here on August 15. This was our first time here and must say the 7 hour trip to Edmonton was worth it! The service was great and accommodating, and the food was fabulous! Thanks to all here who made our anniversary so special!

This was my second visit to this wonderful restaurant. For anyone who likes an independent restaurant of top quality and service - this most definitely will fit the bill. The service and attention to detail is excellent, and the food is absolutely fantastic. Wonderful intimate setting, and an extensive wine list as well.

The food was amazing, the wine was delicious and the service was exceptional. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and the beer and wine selection. The ambiance is relaxing. My new favourite place to eat!

The food was amazing, complex yet simple, almost scientific. The service was above and beyond our expectations. Scott was our server, absolutely exceptional, he obviously did everything in his power to make sure we had the best possible experience. There were no options for mains on the menu for vegetarians but when we spoke with Scott about it, he recommended... More

Vivo is unassuming from the exterior but warm and friendly inside. The food is served family style, but the menu is far better than 'home cooking'. For example, the sea bass was served with a grilled grapefruit half to be squeezed over the beautifully cooked fish. It was also garnished with sea asparagus - a slightly salty vegetable that was...

You are warmly greeted at the front door, and then you are spoiled, the staff is amazing and obviously love being there. And then the food starts, attention to detail, all made in restaurant, top quality ingredients, I can not even pick a favorite, as it was all so amazing!! The fresh bread, the garlic dip, the caprese salad, fettuccine,... More

Our friends have told us this restaurant was great. Also it has high reviews on trip advisor. I recommend making a reservation through tripadvisor or open table app to ensure you get in. This place is very professional. It has an open concept kitchen where you can see the chef cook your food. It has a lot of wines to... More
