ViVA Bistro & Lounge is affordable and upscale (yet delightfully casual) cuisine & tapas in a beautiful, warm bistro ambience. When it comes to having a "Taste of the Good Life," it doesn't get any better than ViVA's Euro-Mediterranean cuisine, featuring French and Italian cuisines with over 25 appetizers and tapas served graciously in our beautiful, warm and friendly "old world" bistro. We invite you to also join us in our trendy, contemporary lounge setting for live music and entertainment. At ViVA, it's all about great tasting food, drinks and fun, featuring tapas (a Spanish tradition of small plates meant to be shared), fantastic signature salads and paninis, the freshest seafood in town, great Italian pasta dishes, French-inspired chicken entrees, fabulous prime rib, fresh locally-butchered steaks, and ViVA's scrumptious homemade desserts. Our extensive selection of fine of wines, world class ales & lagers, and full bar is the perfect place to kick off your work shoes or share in fun and good company on the weekends. Take a look at our renown list of signature drinks and drink specials! ViVA also provides world-class catering services for your wedding, holiday party, or special event. We offer menu options perfect for entertaining for corporate events to parties and can help design the perfect spread for your special occasion. We also have two locations to host events- schedule an appointment to view and meet with our coordinators!

Seems like it should be much better...

This amazing space failed to provide in food and service. Beautiful restaurant. Great space, well-designed. Busy place with live music, but the music didn't have to be blared to hear it and it wasn't so loud you couldn't talk. So atmosphere gets a 5! Unfortunately, our server left much to be... read more

This is a very noisy place. During lunch and dinner one has to yell to have a conversation. The food is overpriced and very average. The service is consistently bad. I had ordered a Marquita and was presented with some pink drink and an argument when I asked for what I ordered. At least this gave us a reason to... More

...or your meal will be rushed. I was only halfway through my salad when my entree was brought to me. Considering that it was pasta (short fire time), there was no need to hurry me. When it was brought back to me, it was painfully overcooked and over-sauced. Very disappointing.

Food and Atmosphere Are very nice. The service was a little slow for a large party. The drinks were excellent and well prepared. Lobster Bisque is amazing

It advertises itself as a Tapas lounge but the menu is uninspired, even diner-like, incl. meatloaf & spaghetti w/meatballs.The prices suggest more than it delivers. We expected a bistro but got a chain restaurant. Viva la Marriott.

Joined this restaurant several times for lunch between August and October. Each time the service was poor, wait was relively long (not busy) and this past visit my lunch was charged double on my cc statement. Thankfully, I had my original receipt so it could be easily adjusted after my SECOND call to the manager. Oh, how I will miss... More

I had a chicken wrap and it was just OK. There are better choices in Wyomissing, Pa The service was nothing special and all in all I would say skip it.

I don't know where to start. I wanted to like Viva. Friends go there and they have good deals. I have never ordered a meal I have thoroughly enjoyed there- most things are alright, but nothing I've ever had more than once. My favorite was their brie puff that has since been taken off the menu. The atmosphere is slightly... More

I'm a pasta lover and also of anything Italian. I have pretty much given up the chase for these in restaurants as not too many can match my homemade sauce and pasta. However, Viva in West Reading, PA has made me succumb to their Italian entrees. I had the Penne in Vodka sauce with sliced sweet sausage. The little lady... More

I am in town for a family issue. Late nights have led to finding dinner close to the hotel. I have eaten her 3 times and not overly impressed. If I had a choice I probably wouldn't eat there again. My family recommended it . The atmosphere is ok and the staff is nice.
