“Best Casual Seafood on the Monterey Peninsula”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

We have been coming to Vivilo's on every visit to Pacific Grove since 1989. The seafood selection is varied....and very tasty. Great casual environment. We'll be back here again in a couple of months.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Checked out the reviews and decided to eat here for lunch. We had the clam chowder in sourdough bowl and bay shrimp cocktail. One of the best clam chowder I have ever had and the bay shrimp cocktail was not bad too. Food and service was so Outstanding as we were walking out we gave the place high praises to a group wondering if they should eat there. Not much to look at as mentioned by some but worth eating there.

“Beautiful chowder!!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

I've never experienced clam chowder & what a beautiful experience it was!
Served in a sour dough loaf with a Parmesan side toast, yum yum, lovely & creamy with loads of clams!
The tiramisu is also to die for & very reasonable price!
Definitely worth the visit

“Best Clam Chowder”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

It doesn't look like much, but the food is fantastic, and as we entered regular patron told us the specials were great. The chowder in a sourdough bowl was delicious (and as a pescitarian I was very happy they don't use bacon) - the grilled crab and cheese my sister had was definitely something to write home about! Highly recommended!
