Nice late summer dinner outside

We were given a gift certificate to Viva and decided to use it one weeknight last week. Their tapas menu is always interesting so we went with bruschetta and fish tacos. Then we shared a crab cake entree, and a 3 mini dessert deal. We each had an Angry Orchard, my husband also a scotch. Bill was... read more

Four of us had dinner on a Friday night. We had a short wait at the bar until a table was ready. The menu is vast and has really something for everyone. The menu included tapas and also regular entrees, sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, and salads. We easily found entrees to meet everyone's dietary needs. The service is suitably present, but... More

There is pretty good variety on the menu at this restaurant, but I was not overly impressed with the quality. Chicks fingers were very greasy. Chopped salad was ordinary and the dressing was a little heavy on the vinegar. Everything just seemed a little heavy handed. Generous portions though, if you're looking for quantity.

We just hosted a rehearsal dinner at VIVA and ti was wonderful. We worked with Ethel to plan the event and she was amazing. It was effortless. Food was delicious and the VIP lounge was the perfect spot. Zach, Matt, David and the chef did a great job the night of the event.

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

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.

We are sorry to hear that your takeout took longer than expected and wasn't as hot as you'd like, but we are very happy to hear that your experience in ViVA with us was great. We hope to be able to prove ourselves with your next takeout order! Thank you for stopping in, as always! More
