Awesome service/atmostphere, adequate food, WAY overpriced!!

A group of 7 of us had dinner and I was shocked by how overpriced the food was! $39 for a plate of fettuccine and cheese (nothing else!) that gave each of us a little spoonful to taste, and $17 for 7 tiny asparagus spears wrapped in prosciutto. That's almost $2.50 per skinny asparagus spear... read more

I've been to Vivo several times over the past year and a half, and the food is absolute heaven each and every time. Even the bread, olives and olive oil they bring before you begin your meal is delicious. I've had appetizers, pasta and meat dishes, and absolutely nothing disappoints. I love the family style dining, and the service is... More

What an amazing evening I had with my friend at Vivo. They were so accommodating to my dietary needs, explained everything completely and the head chef even came for a visit to see how we were doing. The food was exquisite and I could tell how much care and prestige is put into every single dish. The desert...epic! We had... More

My co-worker has been telling me about Vivo for a while now - and he didn't steer me wrong! Everything was exceptional! The service is outstanding as is the food and wine! Everything is done very well. I could have just eaten the Gnocchi - out of this world!

Great ambiance, sat at the counter and watched the chef prepare our meal. Such quality ingredients ensured a very tasty meal. Wonderful blend of flavours and textures. Service was just right, enough attention and information.

Picked this as a mystery restaurant to take some friends because a coworker had recommended and had rave reviews on this site. Was a little nervous but OMG was it wonderful!! Great service, and the food was amazing. Started with Caesar salad, then spaghetti, mixed grill for main with Brussels sprouts, and ended with tiramisu and coffee. Only thing not... More

First visit to Vivo. Could not be happier. As mentioned, food, service and atmosphere, excellent. Great selection of wines and knowledgeable wait staff. Very well looked after without any hovering and even a visit from the owner on a busy night. Will recommend and return.

Friday night was our first time to Vivo's. Having read some of the reviews, I was intrigued to come for a visit. Our experience did not disappoint. Pat, our server, was knowledgeable, attentive, and made excellent suggestions. We asked for and then followed his suggestions for all aspects of the meal and his selections were spot on. The grilled Caesar... More

Consistently excellent, must have the fettuccine it is the best I have ever had! The sharing platters, grilled Caesar salad and the wine selection should bring you back for more!

We went to Vivo for dinner last night and my husband and a business associate from Calgary ordered the lamb. I don't eat lamb but they said it was the best lamb they have ever had. Both of them have had lamb in restaurants all over the world so this really says something. All of our other food was excellent... More
