    We sat outside in a great area with live music at just the right volume. You will not leave here hungry! The risotto and grilled vegetable side dishes could be a meal! Had the filet and it was perfectly done.

    We were a party of 4. This place was recommended by a local so we thought we should try it out. It’s a DONT MISS. The outdoor seating was nice with good fans blowing. The music was mellow and not so loud that it disturbed dinner conversation. Our server was helpful and kept bringing cold water. The food though!! OUTSTANDING! Try anything that has their risotto involved!

    Server Martin was amazing. He was very knowledgeable on everything and helped us navigate our Hemingway esque rum tasting at the end of our meal. He honestly cared whether we e enjoyed our food and drinks and gave great service. We will come back to specifically ask for him. The dough on the empanadas was the highlight it was beautifully done.

    Un dîner à Key west. Une réservation sans problème sur open table. Un serveur au petit soin très agréable et très efficace. Une ambiance musicale avec un duo guitares voix très bon. Nourriture bonne, bien assaisonnée, mais trop copieuse. Pas pu prendre de dessert.

    Four in our group. Two ordered the rib-eye. Both steaks were maybe 1/2” thick and very very fatty. If there is a chef in the kitchen, he/she should be embarrassed. I did not complain. No need as they already know what they are serving. I ate a few bites and let it go to scrap. The wait staff are seriously professional and deserve better. Although steakhouse is in their name, this is definitely not a steakhouse. First and last time at Viva.

    Sadly meats of the Argentine were not on the menu. The empanada meat was full of gristle. Calamari were swimming in a tasteless tomato sauce. Nice outdoor spot - Singer was outstanding and the service outstanding.

    Our entire experience was excellent. We dined outside on the patio under an umbrella. Our waiter, I think named Hakeem , originally from Jamaica, was wonderful. He was attentive and very funny and friendly. The hostess, originally from Ushuaia Argentina, was friendly and engaging. Our food was perfectly delicious. We ordered the salmon filet with risotto, which was moist , perfectly cooked with a crispy crust. Some of the best salmon we’ve had. The second entree was the skirt steak with roasted potatoes and asparagus. It was the best skirt steak we’ve had. We also had a bottle of the Argentinian Piattelli Cabernet that was perfect with the meal. Would recommend, and will certainly return on our next KW visit.

    We went for the steaks as Viva was recommended to us. I’m not sure but my filet was a grass fed prime cut. My wife and I ordered medium rare and I could almost cut t with a fork. Super tender and it was served with asparagus and a polenta type side. The place is not “fine dining” but is a lot better than the typical tourist restaurants. Not expensive at all but also not a casual type price range. As a visitor our group would recommend Viva for sure.
