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.

I was in town visiting family and they suggested that we eat here. The meal was not perfect, but overall it was a good decision. Here are plusses and minuses of the experience. The onion soup was good and the salads that the others had looked very fresh and crisp. The bread was fresh, but not warm (which would have... More

The food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable based on the quality. Service and decor made it the best restaurant I have experienced in the Reading area.

Convenient and clean but the food left a lot to be desired. Chicken was dry, veggies were cold. We sent back some of the dishes and they were nice about it and fixed it but that really is not acceptable. Drinks were ok, the do have some fancy special drinks that a lot of the folks around us seemed to... More
