I've been a big fan of their burger for a long time. I changed it up last time and got their spicy fried chicken sandwich which is the latest West Michigan trend. It had some heat, and good flavor. I also shared escargot and the meatballs which were also tasty.
I think it's safe to say their menu is a little reduced, but still offers a good selection.
I very much enjoyed my experience at Brewery Vivant. I like the setup where they have you place the barcode tag in the glass to request a server. The service was great, food was great, and atmosphere was great. I’m at IPA guy, but wanted to venture away from that taste to try the Ale’s and Belgium’s. They were very tasty! I would recommend this place as somewhere to go when you want to have a unique, pleasant, and tasty experience. Great job to the staff!
First time here. Overall positive experience. The food was good. I would just recommend not sitting next to the women's bathroom.
Brewery Vivant has stepped up the dining out game! The way all of the servers helped each other out to take care of of any needs was better than anyone could ask for. Plus the method of notifying the staff that you wanted something was simple but brilliant. I wish all of the places we visit could do things this way!
Limited menu choice slow service overall was medicor
Great place, excellent beer and cider and the best fries!!
Great food, service needs improvement. We waited for our drinks for quite a bit. Food was great and the ambiance was good as well
Great food, beer and atmosphere! Would definitely go here again!
Loved the beer, burgers and barley soup!
Vivant is the best Brewery in Grand Rapids. The service, beer, and food are all exceptional. Would recommend for almost anyone.
My birthday ❤️
Our server was the coolest and nicest. We love vivant and try to make it up from Toledo once a year or so and it NEVER disappoints! Love y’all!
The smaller menu had several sold out items for Friday dinner service. The beer is amazing and the food was decent. The raw red onion in the coleslaw overpowered the flavors in my chicken sandwich, but my fiance had the rabbit hash which was phenomenal.
Always a great time visiting your brewery when we are in the GR area. Bonus... you had StrawBarb on tap and in cans 🙌🏼
Brewery Vivant is always a fantastic time. Beer and food are fabulous. The desserts are just decadent. If you have not been, go. You will want to go back-often!
Great atmosphere , Jessie (bar tender) has a great playlist that sets a back drop of calm to unwind after a stressful day.
B.V. remains a Go-To in Grand Rapids!
Enjoyed our visit!! Highly recommended and loved the beer & food.
This is the first time my wife and I dined inside, and it was great. Beer was great, food was great, and my company was even better. We love this place.
Our first time dining out after attaining fully vaccinated status. Tables are socially distanced. We appreciated the quieter atmosphere of a not so crowded restaurant. Ordering is easy and service was quick. And, as always, the burgers and beer were delicious! One of our fave places to dine out in GR!
Reception was very pleasant. Beer and food were okay. The chicken chili soup was the best menu item we tried. Everything was good, it just did not stand out. Glad we tried it. Setting was unique. Loved the bar area!
Great spot. Drinks and food were on point. Service was great.
Great service, and awesome food! Will definitely be back.
Right as we walked up the weather went from bad rain to seeming like a hurricane, the staff didn't miss beat helping the folks sitting outside get inside and also take care of their equipment out there. Kudos to them for that.
For our actual dining experience, everything was great. Beers came out fast and the little but of food we has was very good. They have the best escargot in town!
Always a must visit stop when we are In Grand Rapids. Great atmosphere and food. Love the beer! We ordered a flight then chose our favorite and got a Pint.
Great place to have a beer and wonderful food! Very clean! We will definitely be back!
Great location in GR that has awesome food and a great selection of beers.
Brewery Vivant has something for everyone that enjoys exceptional food and even better beer. The staff are always knowledgeable and helpful and their covid protocols give you that safe feeling all while allowing to enjoy your time.
Excellent food, excellent drinks, hosted in a fun old building by excellent staff.
As ever, Lindsey, our server was cheerful and attentive. The beer we enjoyed was delicious and flavorful. We eagerly look forward to the newest offerings.
(We did not order any food this time but the review required a rating. So the food rating is based on prior visits.)
I return to Vivant and am always pleased with the experience. Many craft brewers in GR. These folks are very good at what they do. Their brew craft migrates to their culinary craft.
Best beer and atmosphere in Grand Rapids. The people that work here are consistently the most joyful I have very experienced- our favorite brewery.
Great place to come for a few beers and catch up with friends. I had the Big Red Coq and fries and both were great! The staff were also knowledgeable about their beers and made great recommendations.
You cannot beat the chapel area for ambience. Even on a Friday evening it was easy to make conversation because the noise was not bad. Brewery Vivant takes Covid precautions seriously which I appreciate. There might not be a large selection of beer but the selection is topnotch. Although I go a brewery for the brews and not the food the appetizers are great. Service is attentive. Just my favorite place to be at on Tuesday evenings as a Monk Club member.
We stopped here on a Wednesday night for a quick bite to eat. As usual, the food and beer were outstanding and the service was pleasant and prompt. We need to make it a point to stop in here more.
The staff were welcoming and accommodating while fully keeping CDC recommended distance and safety protocols. The food and drinks came out in a timely manner, prepared to perfection. Great experience!
We were celebrating both being fully vaccinated and out first time out in over a year. Also a three year remission celebration
The IPAs were good and loved the poutine to eat!
I used to love this brewery. Its definitely changed over the years. Our biggest issue was that the quality of service was poor considering they weren't busy at all. Initially they wanted place us at an awkward table when there were plenty of options available. I requested to sit at a different t table that wasnt so "front and center" and was told no immediately. The problem was later rectified after we sat down.
We were told that there was a time limit to our dinner, yet after 30 minutes no on else showed up in the restaurant. We rushed for nothing.
The beer and food is always excellent. The staff is very friendly and they deliver outstanding service.
Love the atmosphere and always a fun place to go.
