    Wonderful evening! The patio is a lovely area, fantastic music by a duo called Coconut Koalas, the best seafood risotto, and a scrumptious white sangria. Oh, and the second was excellent too. All round great experience at Viva!

    Server Danielle provided poor service from start to finish. Sign on the street advertised all day happy hours specials and certain drink specials, when asked about it she just pointed us to the regular menu stating no specials. Would have ordered more drinks and dessert if she would have checked in on us more, it was like we were being ignored. Tables around us had much more attention. Asked for the check and then waited nearly 15 minutes to only have to ask again, while she chatted with the hostess and checked on other tables. Service was actually very disappointing. Empanadas were excellent, skirt steak was a little over-seasoned. Live music was just OK, had hoped for something a Latin being an Argentinian restaurant rather than a 90s lounge ban..

    We were pleased with our food, however, very disappointed in their corkage of $40 per bottle of wine. We had called two days in advance, and we were told OK to bring the bottle and that they had a very reasonable corkage charge. We don’t believe $40 per bottle corkage charge is reasonable For a middle of the road type of restaurant. They would not negotiate.

    Everyone we encountered here was so friendly! The steak empanadas got our meal off to a great start, along with sangria (of course)! I had salmon, which was cooked perfectly and accompanied by tender risotto and asparagus that wasn’t overcooked (bless you). My husband had skirt steak, which was also delicious. We shared a piece of key lime pie. Live entertainment was fabulous and, as others have said, not so loud that you couldn’t talk to each other. Overall, a wonderful evening!

    I loved our time from start to finish. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent, my date even said it was the best steak he’d ever had; he’s a harsh connoisseur. The live music was perfect for a romantic date but we were able to still hold conversations. They only have the 1 vegetarian meal option (it is an Argentinian restaurant after all) but it was amazing that night and reheated, although mashed potatoes is an odd pairing. The curry cauliflower was also my best decision of the night. We were in the keys for just 1 day, but that was the best food out of 4 spots.

    Although the food was very good and the service was excellent, the experience was disappointing. The pictures promoting the restaurant were misleading. Only canned music, no dance floor and the canopies were dirty. We came to Key West and chose this restaurant from many possibilities to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. You only get one shot at it!
