Wonderfully large variety. Great please to take the family, something for everyone. We have dined many times at Viva each unique and special in its own way.

Visited with friends. The space is beautiful. Fireplace is nice. Service was spotty--slow and not accurate. The food was good---lots of choices, including some healthier ones. Drinks got mixed reviews-- a Cosmo was very good, but not a margarita. Liked the option of breakfast. Would return but would try other restaurants first.

6 of us were celebrating a birthday and from before we sat down, we were disappointed. The restaurant was less 1/4 full, yet we had to wait for a table to be set (and we had a reservation). Once we were seated, the waiter, a nice person, just woefully inept and under trained attempted to take our drink order. I... More

I joined two friends at ViVA for dinner about a month ago - it was my first visit, but not theirs. It is a very lovely, inviting place with stone walls, hardwood floors, and glass. There is live jazz on some nights - a welcome treat. The service was very accommodating, and the food was quite good. I am a... More

Viva is a great restaurant for a business lunch or dinner or a more relaxed meal with friends and family. The food is very good as is the services. Prices are a little above average but you can't beat their dinner special - appetizer, soup and an entree for $15.95.

I had dinner here 3 times in the last couple of months and I had a good experience every time. The service is very good, very attentive and helpful. If you are having dinner on your own or if you celebrate special occasions, this is a place which will adapt to your needs. Food is OK, nothing to write home... More
