Good Food Great Server

I always eat here at least once when I am in the area. The food is good and the service is usually hit or miss for dinner. My most recent visit was a definite Hit. Edwin was our server and his service was flawless. If he lived on St. Simons Island? We would hire him to work in our #1... read more

Well there were 11 of us, including 2 infants, on a busy Saturday, presenting a real challenge for the wait staff and kitchen. But everything was flawless. We did not have to wait long and there were no mistakes on orders. The food was surprisingly good. Several of us had a salmon dish -- there were several differetn preparations --... More

If I didnt drive by everyday on the way back from work , I probably wouldnt remember the name. The food is average , the drinks are the usual suspects , the service is lack lustre.

Lunch was a very pleasant experience, good children's menu and everything we ordered was tasty and a generous size, we ordered take out for dinner which ended up taking 30 minutes longer than they said and some of the meals were lukewarm while some were hot. Note to self, only eat here if eating in.

Have attempted to dine there on several occasions but was able to get a table only once. Food was very good but it is extremely difficult to get a table between 5 and 8 pm any day of the week would suggest making reservations way in advance.

Thank you for continuing to frequent ViVA! It looks like you always enjoy your meal with us and we hope that we can "wow" you again the next time you are in. Making reservations are always a great idea during our peak dinner times, but we also always have room in our Bar & Lounge area while you wait! More

Great place to go out for dinner with friends or on a date. Good food. Nice bar. Live music on the weekends. Fun tapas. Always on my short list.

Dinner was better than average but not great. Our group of 11 people all received their correct orders but I'm still waiting for the server to refill my water or get another drink. The selection on the menu was outstanding however. I had grilled salmon which was good though the vegetables that came with it were a little cool.

It is Wednesday night, great 82 degree weather outside, 6:00 PM till 7:00 PM, and there is no one here but us, what gives? Well it was not quite that bad, but there would not be a wait to get seated with less than 25 percent of the tables occupied. After getting over the apparent lack of customers for some... More

First time I was there. Took my mother for Mothers Day. It was good food and relaxing environment. Manager (Alan) visited our table and welcomed us. The owner also came and seen if everything was good. We will be back again.
