Talk about a find. We were in Bethlehem with extended family for a college graduation. Our son suggested looking outside of the immediate area for a place to celebrate. We found Vivo. The people here could not be nicer. We were an hour late because the graduation ran long. No problem, even for our big party. The service was outstanding. Luke was our waiter. The food was outstanding, each dish better than the previous one. No one rushed us. In fact, we had to ask for the check. I'm just sorry we didn't find Vivo before our son graduated. We'll just have to find an excuse to go there again. Thank you all. More

Food was good and more reasonable than some of the newer Mexican restaurants opening up. The guitar player was good but way too loud. We were a group of 8 and they seated us right in front of guitar player and his amp. We go out to enjoy each other’s company but could only occasionally hear Each other. More

The main reason I a giving a 5 star rating is the service. My wife and I stopped in about 7pm on a Saturday evening for dinner. It was prom night for several schools, the restaurant was short staffed and they even had staff call off. We were so impressed by the work ethic of the staff that was there - only 2 or 3 servers for the restaurant. The all hustled, the greeter was back and forth helping get drinks, bring out clean plates, etc. They ended up not charging for drinks or salad because they felt bad it took longer than their standard to serve food. While we told them this was not necessary, they said it was not up to their standard and they did not want any customer to leave that evening feeling they were not treated well. The manager came by a few times to check in on tables and communicated updates. We truly appreciated the open communication! That being said, our meatballs, salad and pizza were all perfect. Great job Anthony's! More
