Fabulous Halibut, a chef who knows how to season their food, amazing and attentive service....we will 100% be back.
First time to try Thursday night Fried Chicken. Was wonderful.
Delicious as always. Really good waiter.
Awesome food and staff. Everyone really takes care of you at this local gem. Great dog friendly patio as well.
Always a pleasure.....we loved Vivian when it first opened, and with all new places, there is a risk the quality will fall off over time. Happy to report that Vivain has maintained high standards...with excellent friendly service and a combo menu of old favorites and new entries. Do not hesitate to go and enjoy one of Asheville's finest.
We had Sunday brunch here during our 4 days in Asheville. Vivian is in the Riverfront Arts district, which is quite spread out. The district was quiet on a Sunday morning. The inside of the restaurant is old and artsy. We sat on the patio, which was pleasantly shaded as the day heated up. The menu is a good brunch menu, with some familiar dishes, many with a twist. There is a Dutch influence, with sweet breads. Staff were pleasant and made everyone feel welcome. Nice place to eat.
INSIDE THE DINNING ROOM THE NOISE LEVEL WAS SO LOUD AND IRRITATING, IT WAS HARD TO HEAR THE PERSON ACROSS FROM YOU AT A 2 PERSON TABLE. iT TOOK A LONG TIME FOR US TO GET OUR FOOD. I ASKED OUR SERVER ABOUT IT AND HER REPLY WAS "EVERTHING IS MADE FRESH." THE SCAMBLED EGGS WERE TOO SALTY AS WERE THE POTATOES. THERE WAS A LITTLE FLAVOR IN THE SAUGAGE BUT THE PORTION WAS TOO SMALL.
Loved the food and the service! I don't usually care for dessert but the Peach Charlotte was so good that we HAD to order two!
Ate on the patio which was delightful. Highlight of the meal (all small plates) was the fall squash and farmers cheese plate.
Amazing experience!!! Can’t wait to go again. The food was so creative and delicious. Clean plates all around!
The food was amazing.
The food was amazing. What a gem of a restaurant? The sausage and peppers app was delicious. The filet and the pork chop were amazing. Josiah and Shannon are to of the best restaurant owner and there attention to detail is amazing. Anticipation is the name of the game and the service staff here knows the game.
We love Vivian’s. This time service was slow. Took too long to get our drinks, almost an hour for salads. With that said, our waitress was very pleasant. Salads and entrees were excellent.
Great food! Can't emphasize enough the quality, feel, smell, and most importantly the taste we experienced!
Always excellent in every way!
Food delicious, wine list excellent, service a little slow
Enjoyed our first experience at Vivian. A bit expensive, but the food was great.
We were a bit disappointed in Vivian. My Quenelle was pretty much just a lump of doughy I-don't-know-what, though the broth was delicious. I had never had one before, so wasn't certain what to expect. Maybe that was the problem. My husband had the halibut and said it was delicious. We split the Peach Charlotte - another disappointment. The "custard" inside was clammy and the cake was bland. Perhaps a scoop of ice cream would have helped. Not much of a presentation. The wines we selected were very nice and Bernadette did a wonderful job with the service. One last thing: $2 for a small piece of baguette? It was very good, but why on earth charge for before-dinner bread?!? Seems a bit miserly - especially for a gourmet restaurant.
The brunch at Vivian is too heavy overall, even though some dishes are not. It's just not the best place for brunch.
Place smelled like old fish and wet dog hair.....food was just not good. Service was fine, but the food really poor.
The chef is a genius. And service was great
In the main dining room it gets a bit noisy after patrons had. A few
Cocktail selection is great
Best resto in asheville
creative combinations of ingredients. beautiful presentations. not a lot for vegetarians, but my friend did fine. lovely fish and shellfish.
One dish was way over cooked - even was burned around the edges of the little casserole plate. It was an appetizer that was supposed to be served as an entree'. I suspect they took it back and put it in the oven to keep it warm till others in our party were ready for the entree' but by then it was over cooked but they served it anyway. They gave us a free dessert as an apology but I really think they should have taken the charge off the bill as it was twice what the dessert costed.
Outstanding!!! Table of 4 entrees - Halibut, Scallops, 2 bacon wrapped Filets. Halibut was best I've ever had...perfectly cooked! Bacon wrapped filet also cooked to perfect medium rare...delicious! First time visit for us, surely to be a regular favorite spot from now on. Keep up the good work chef, great presentation, plated beautifully!
Went on a Wed for 1/2 price bottles of wine. Great food and nice bottle of red
INCREDIBLE FOOD! EXCELLENT SERVICE! IT’S A SMALL SPACE WHICH ACCOUNTS FOR THE NOISE LEVEL, BUT WE WILL RETURN FOR THE EXCEPTIONAL FOOD! DO MAKE A RESERVATION, OTHERWISE YOU’LL EAT AT THE BAR, IF THERE’S ROOM. HI
One of the absolute best restaurants in Asheville. Every meal (at least 10 so far) that I’ve eaten here has been outstanding. Plus they are very sweet and accommodating of my food allergies. Great food, great service, great ambience, great cocktails and wine.
Our first visit. Won't be our last. Extensive and interesting choices for Sunday Brunch. I had the Souffle' Omelet with crab newburg and my husband had the duck breast salad. Bother were excellent. Friendly and attentive service. We'll be back.
Great place. The best meal I had in Asheville. The Filet was exceptional!
Exceptional service and amazing food. One of the best pork chops I’ve ever had. Good wine list and we had an amazing Anniversary Celebration. Only issue is it’s an old warehouse and the acoustics are not good. I know they are trying to fix it by adding panels on the ceiling and walls but it’s hard to hear each other talk across the table. That would not keep us away......we would go back and suggest it.
Fois Gras is a must. One of the best I've EVER had! Skip the olives. Without some kind of bread or toastini, they are hard to consume. I had the BIG T- bone. It was cooked PERFECTLY (not easy with two type of steak on either side of the bone), but the sauce, which promised to be a red wine sauce, was more like a Worcestershire sauce... My husband had the Haddock, which was a bit dry, and more importantly, was NOT helped by the very mild cream sauce it was served with. Also, my Malbec was not a good quality vineyard. The place gets very very VERY noisy (we are btw 7 and 9pm). Otherwise, a very nice addition to the Asheville dining scene! 😃
Best kitchen in Asheville!
Fantastic chicken on Third Thursday. Keep it a secret or there will be a line outside!
This was not our first time here. The food and service are always fantastic.
My favorite restaurant in asheville. Excellent dinner, amazing brunch and always good cocktails and wine selection
Fabulous, creative food. Excellent, knowledgeable, warm and friendly staff. One of the best bartenders ever for creative drinks. An exceptional experience.
Always enjoy great food and service at Vivian. Menu changes appreciated Never hesitate.
Absolutely incredible brunch date. Inventive, high quality, and unique options made for a wonderful experience!
AMAZING PLACE!! THE CHEESY GRITS WERE THE BEST PART.
I DO HAVE TO SAY THEIR BISCUITS WERE ON POINT.
