Always pleased with my dining experience at Viva! So much variety on the menu. The food is fresh, flavorful, and delicious. I've been particularly pleased with the salad options they offer. The atmosphere is warm, inviting, comfortable, and fun. Service is good. Great place to go for drinks and dinner with friends.

From the hostess to the chef to the server, everything was great here. We were a party of 18 I believe, and we did have to wait for our food a while but I'd rather wait than get it super fast. Super fast to me equates to everything was frozen or has been microwaved. The food here tasted fresh, and... More

A few years ago we had a reunion in the Reading area with family, and the “locals” chose Viva for a luncheon get-together. Having never been there before, I looked up Trip Advisor’s reviews and found they were quite varied in range from very positive to negative. Undismayed, I went to the family reunion and not only had a nice... More

My friend and I stopped in saturday night for desserts. This is how our night went: Server came over and stared at us, didnt talk. We ordered desserts and she walked away not taking a drink order. Server returned with desserts and again didn't say anything. Server never came to check on us. We ended up leaving $10 on the... More

Went to VIVA with another couple today and were very happy with our choice. Meal was very good with good portions. Friend's salmon and tilapia were very good, husband's bistro sirloin was very good, he liked the fire grilled idea. I had the French country chicken pie with crust. It was very good but not the traditional crust, more of... More

Four of us went to Viva 7/26/14. It was a birthday celebration. We had lots of choices from their diverse menu. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was excellent. The duet menu is a good value for couples and it includes their delicious desserts. We also like to go there for lunch. Excellent sandwiches, salads and pasta. They have... More

Good family stop for dinner on Sunday. Kids eat free I think on Sundays. Food is very good and drink selection is good as we'll. service is definitely slower in the dining room than the bar area so if bar area works for you do it. That being said, the wait staff is always very friendly. Pricing is good for... More

Trendy restaurant with good food. A cut or 2 above the nationals with pricing just above the chain restaurants, and food a cut above as well. Was a Friday night and the service was good, especially since they were so busy. Would go again for sure and if you're looking for a slightly upscale place to take friends, family, or... More

Most positive thing I can say about Viva....it was the only thing open on July 4th. The food was fine (some of it "pretty good")....if you're staying at the Marriott Courtyard next door (and want something close and pretty good), this will do the trick. The beer selection was above average....lobster mac & cheese was pretty good.

Food is uninspired and not well cooked (either over cooked or undercooked).service is poor and the server at times was testy. Overall the atmosphere was very noises. It was almost impossible to have a conversation without raising your voice which contributed to the noise.
