    Food was very good. There was an issue that we didn’t complain about with the food but the server saw it and reported it to the manager. The manager proactively approached us about the issue and handled it perfectly and provided accommodations. We are so impressed with the handling of an issue that we might have left slightly dissatisfied with, that didn’t rise to the level of actively complaining. The fact that she was so proactive and accommodating was incredible. We will be back since it was a great dining experience!

    I've been here a couple of times...Happy Hour overlooking the Ocean, a large group family party, but today was BRUNCH! Being a 'breakfast-out' kinda guy, I think I have a pretty good handle on what's good, bad and ugly in the brunch world This is quite possibly THE BEST brunch I have had on three continents over too many years The LOCATION - there is something special about the drive up A1A to a place where can you gaze Eastward over the azure blue of the Atlantic Ocean as the sun starts its path from dawn to dusk... The FOOD - Jeremy Hanlon has upped his game from nearby Bennys On The Beach with a Mexican fusion kinda thing; I had 2 over medium eggs, house baked cheese bread, thick sliced applewood smoked bacon, avocado & home fried potatoes and the word that came to mind when I was eating was BALANCED...not too much nor too skimpy a portion and the perfect blend of flavors on one plate; fantastic coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice The SERVICE - unobtrusive but attentive The PRICE - incredible value for money given the location and quality of the food Go - you will not regret it

    Our family loves our waiter Yaniel. He is a man that always exceeds our expectations, because of treating his customers as family. When we are there at Viva La Playa, Yaniel puts all of his energy into making our dining experience extra special. What an asset to your restaurant!

    We enjoyed the food and decor, however the air conditioning was not on, and there were fans blowing. This made the dining experience rather uncomfortable, especially during July in South Florida considering it is so hot. We have dined in other restaurants that keep the door open to the exterior and others still maintain the air conditioning running in the dining room. On a better note the food was good

    This was my first time dining at Viva La Playa and it was great! The restaurant is conveniently located steps away from the beach. I loved the overall decor; it was very modern and clean, and it had the perfect balance between casual and chic. My server, Robert, was very pleasant and attentive. He was great at giving me an overview of what makes this restaurant different from others. The food was excellent. I ordered the steak tacos and I was blown away. Everything from the hand-made tortilla, to the steak, and the garnish were perfect! I especially enjoyed the pickled onions on top; it gave the tacos just the perfect taste. Also enjoyable were the fried yuca sticks. I will definitely be back!

    Went to celebrate our anniversary. Location was terrific. Staffing very low thus service was extremely poor. Even the kitchen did not perform well. Food was cold, shrimp was over cooked (dried and charred). My wife was sick through the night. Menu was specific for geographic objective; make sure you like that type of food before going. We will never return. Businesses should not operate unless they can perform at least decently.

    I had never been my friends had. It is right on the sidewalk overlooking the ocean, great view. 1 friend ordered short ribs with potatoes. He said it was very good. My other friend and I ordered a Snapper butterflied with coriander dust lime and wine sauce with artichokes. I thought it aas very tasty. The only downside flies attacked the food in a swarm, otherwise very good.

    I took my husband here for his birthday and the experience was awful! Their air conditioner was not working so it was as hot inside as outside. The soda machine was not working and we had to buy the kids overpriced drinks. It was empty and the service was slow and awful. They were out of menu items. No remedy was offered by the manager GiGi. We payed $40.00 just for drinks and took my husband somewhere else to celebrate his birthday. We will not be returning.

    Went on Father’s Day so could’ve just been a lot going on but my in laws had to return their meals. I got the same thing and it came out perfect so not sure what happened but, overall server was accommodating to the situation and I believe took a percentage off for the meal problems. Love being by the beach, had fans to cool people off, and loved the heavy decor.

    VLP is still having a staffing issue like many. The food and drinks, awesome. Server was overtaxed. Bar staff tried, but not staffed appropriately. The result: Appetizers were not delivered and had to be reminded. Responded that I would like to see dessert menu, it never came. Got the check instead. I rarely tip less than 25%___I am patient and understanding. Management/owners need to get engaged.
