We stayed at the Marriott and it was convenient. The breakfast buffet was excellent! Filled me until dinner. We had dinner one night also. All of the food was excellent (I had the petite steak with shrimp, cut it with a butter knife). Very good food and service was great!

Vivo was well worth the visit for their Mother's Day Brunch for our party of 8. We were promptly seated and our table was spotless. The food was located in the main area (breakfast items as well as an omlet/waffle stations) and in the back room which contained a carving station as well as a pasta station. The food was... More

We had dinner here. The portions are large n most people were eating large plates of tasty looking pasta. The beef tenderloin was good but I really did not taste the mushroom pepper sauce which I was looking forward to. Almost no sauce. Steak was perfectly done though. Gnocchi were home made so nice treat. I would recommend but not... More

Besides the atmosphere, which was just lovely, the food was incredible. We shared salads and fried calamari for appetizers; all of which were delicious and good portions for sharing but not too big where there were leftovers. For dinner we got the porcini ravioli, tuna tartare, filet and ribs. Everyone enjoyed their meals and again just the right portion. Our... More

The restaurant is elegant, the staff are helpful and friendly, and the food was delicious. I would especially recommend the braised short ribs. We showed up without reservations on a rather busy night and they seated us without a problem.

A favorite of ours that never disappoints. We enjoy Vivo for special occasions and those times when you don't feel like cooking and want the best meal for your money. Everything on the menu is delicious; we've tried them all. Try the fresh meats and cheeses appetizer!
