    We had a wonderful meal from start to finish. The hostess is gracious, Maria , our server was accommodating, helpful and didn’t hover and the music was wonderful. We loved that the band did not over amplify, just loud enough to hear but we could still enjoy it. We’ll be back

    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.

    I am from Chicago so maybe the Steakhouse expectations were unrealistic. Nice live music and a beautiful outdoor space. Waited 15 minutes after we sat down to be offered a drink. Wine list had nice options across price ranges. Waitress was very nice and laid back. Sides and plating were very good. Steaks were cut thinly but cooked well. Said 14oz but less than 10oz. Go for the ambience but understand there is a reason you can get a table with little to no wait on spring break.
