Birthday dinner

I really enjoyed the food and the cocktails are lovely. However I find it better value for money if you go in time for the lunchtime price rather than the more expensive night time price.

Felt hugely disappointed and at times wholly unsettled by the service we received during our Father's Day dining at Viva Brazil. The host poured prosecco across the table and never returned to clean it. The server was huffy and at one point told my husband to take his time, then turned the coaster to 'no thanks'. Later she hurried us... More

6 of us had dinner at viva Brazil. The restaurant is laid out well we had a booth so felt quite private and no one close to us. Music was good and not to loud so we could all be heard at the table. The seats at the booth were very visibly worn and covered in stains was worried my... More

The food was really nice, the servers took a while to get round to our tables but they were polite and friendly but got faster throughout the night when the restaurant started to quieten. We pre-booked on line and were pleased we did as there looked to be a little wait. As the food was good I would defiantly return.... More

Visited for dinner this week but was very disappointed. Service was poor. Waited for around 30 minutes before anyone came to take a drinks order and then we were pretty much ignored by the servers who were dishing out the meat, despite having our card at "green". We never seen the girl who was supposed to be our server, so... More

Was advised of this restaurant by friends and went along to check it out, I would say booking is advisable as on the night we were there several people were turned away after just walking in off the street. Reasonably quick service at the bar area before we were given our table and then advised by the waiting staff how... More

Visited Viva Brazil in Glasgow to celebrate a birthday. What a treat. My three companions enjoyed the meat option - 15 different taste sensations if you could last that long, and I chose the seafood option. Five different types of seafood - prawns, squid, salmon, sardines, and fish of the day, all beautifully cooked and presented. Plus a well stocked... More

After hearing great things about Viva Brazil, my friends and I were very disappointed. Service was average and food ok, without sounding greedy two slices per person simply wasn't enough considering the price. Very disappointed indeed.

Went on a Thursday night and it was really busy. We hadn't booked beforehand and if going on a Friday or Saturday I would definitely recommend doing that. Everything was explained to us. The salad/vegetable bar alone was great and I could have quite happily just munched away on that all night ! Seven meats is more than enough and... More

Went with 6 friends for dinner and had a blast, the table was originally booked for 6 but they were able to accommodate 1 more without any problems, drinks arrived within a couple minutes and we went up to the buffet which has a wide variety to suit everyone, everything is fresh and tasty, the meats arrived every few minutes,...
