Diner Reviews
  • "Our meals at Vivace always live up to our expectations! The offerings are full of flavor, imaginative and artfully plated! Kudos to the whole team that make this a truly wonderful gem. From the moment you arrive, you are quickly greeted by the parking valet, and as you make your way to the restaurant, the live music in the lounge is a prelude to a relaxing evening. As in many of our past visits, we were warmly welcomed by the restaurant manager. He fulfilled our request for a special table to celebrate a birthday with a lovely table near the fireplace. From there on our evening was perfect. The live guitarist set a warm ambience, as the extremely attentive and knowledgeable staff set out to make our evening enjoyable. Outstanding!"

  • "My husband and I are locals and wanted to go someplace special to celebrate our 5 year anniversary but didn't want to drive to Del Mar like we usually do. We decided to try Vivace and are so glad we did. The food, service and ambiance far exceeded our expectations. The seasonal menu is cleverly designed to give guests an opportunity to enjoy multiple menu items, similar to a Chef's tasting menu. We felt utterly pampered by the exceptional attention to detail from the staff and savored every morsel of food beginning with the amuse bouche and every course along the way to the final surprise anniversary dessert. We absolutely loved our dining experience and plan on returning to see what the next season will bring to the menu."

  • "Very nice for a quiet dinner with some background musician. A bit too loud so we moved to another room. Post dinner enterttainment in the lobby bar was excellent. Great for staying there. Food was very nice. Wine list was limited."

  • "Went for my birthday and it all was perfect. Service outstanding - out server Butch was the best. Great food and wine recommendations. The music playing in the background was delightful and the fire added the right date quality. Cauliflower soup was amazing as was the lobster risotto. Tiramisu was light and flavorful ( could have eaten two) highly recommend for a special occasion or even a date night."

  • "It was ok but the food was not that good for the price. Service was a bit slow and servers seemed bored and disinterested in their work. Just not like it was when the 4 seasons was operating the facility. The restaurant may be the same but the service is not 4 seasons level. First time there and will not go back."

  • "Perhaps the kitchen was under staffed; 30+ minutes between removal of the appetizer plates and arrival of the entree was a bit too much time. Got dessert to go and we were on our way nearly 1 hour 45 minutes after (only 2 courses) arriving."

  • "We always enjoy dining at Vivace. This time was no different. We were sat a nice table where the setting was very romantic and quiet. As usual, they have a great wine list and a great wines by the glass. The service is impeccable, not overdone with too many interruptions, our Waitress was attentive and very nice and knew the menu well. I like the how they have the different price tiers to choose from based on your appetite. My wife selected the Sea Bream with mussels, clams, etc. It was delicious; similar, yet different from Sea Bass. She started with the soup of the day that again was excellent. We also shared an excellent Rigatoni Alla Bolognese. I had the Venison Loin which was prepared just right. Dessert was awesome!"

  • "Wow! Italian cuisine here was outstanding! Best part was the option of choosing your own three, four or five course meal from among their many tasty menu items. Perfect portion sizes each course. Everything we ordered was fantastic and the service was excellent as well. Highly recommend Vivace and we look forward to going back next time we stay at Aviara."

  • "Great service and food. The venison was fantastic, all four of us loved the food, presentation and the depth of the wait staff. Great wine list. Will return on our next trip to Carlsbad."

  • "I just met up with a friend there--the restaurant is approximately halfway for both of us. It was a very enjoyable dinner. Food was excellent (salad and short rib bolognese). The service was impeccable and very friendly. I would easily go back. The one thing I wished they had was self parking. I'm not a big fan of valet, although it does give people jobs."

  • "The Venison was one of the best I have ever had, the service was great in fact we plan to eat there again on this stay to Cali."

  • "Granted, it has been 3 years, but we were very disappointed with our visit to Vivace. We do not live in the area. Last time the food and service were outstanding. I was very excited to be returning. This time, our server appeared uninterested and mechanical. The food was good, however some items were somewhat overcooked and over seasoned. I speak as a chef school graduate. Unfortunately, we will have to find another "favorite special night out" venue when we visit San Diego."

  • "The food was excellent but the service was a problem. There was large group on the terrace that when seated overwhelmed the restaurant with noise and denigrated the service. They had not staffed adequately to serve this party of 40, and maintain reasonable service for the regular tables. Would still go back but if they have a large group, would change the reservation."

  • "I must tip my hat to the chef for an exceptional menu that delivered on every element that was described by our fantastic waiter. The format for the menu allows for each diner to try different dishes which suited my wife and I very well. The server was extremely knowledgeable and by tasting the imported olive oil (served with warm bread), I knew we were in for a wonderful dining experience. A standout for me was the charcuterie board and the risottos. The only blind spot for Vivace is there was something about the ambiance that reminded me that I was in a hotel. The décor is beautiful, and the Hyatt is tremendous, but there is a small element that lingered that bordered on banquet."
