A second trip was as good as the first

Our second trip to Vivo was as welcoming and pleasant as our first visit. Matthew was our server and his suggestions were just as welcomed and spot on as on our first visit in early 2015. We invited two other couples to join us and all of us had a wonderful experience. We shared the Arrosto... read more

Contained steak, lamb, chicken and Italian sausage. We were stuffed and very happy! This place is a must visit for the food alone. Wine list is very good and... More

The meal was impeccable as was our service! All staff exceeded our expectations including the bartender! Our waiter Alan guided us through our entire meal and... More

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...
