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

Had a very pleasant evening with my wife again at this wonderful restaurant. Staff are great, the food is always terrific and there is always something new happening. Last night tried the scallops appetizer for the first time, would return just for that again, never mind everything else that was great.

When one reads reviews, one asks what others did this person praise and why. I always do, but the reservation had already been made after our fav restaurant was fully reserved, so we went, hoping reviews were correct about Vivo's portions, quality, tastes, and service.. The place is dark and rather comfy, and Vivo has a big wine list heavy... More

First impressions usually set the tone for the evening. After hearing such raves about VIVO, we had great expectations. When we arrived for our 8:30 p.m. dinner reservation, the restaurant was jumping and the noise level was loud. When no one approached our table for the first 25 minutes, we were frustrated and disappointed. We finally told the hostess that... More
