    We visited Vivians based on the recommendations of a good friend. The staff were great but the food itself was not worth the cost. It was not horrible but not great, for the cost it should have been great we probably want be visiting them again. With that said, others may love the food and thinks it's great. We didn't

    We did the Valentines dinner at Vivian’s and it was a really great experience. There were a couple fancy food things we didn’t personally care for, but besides that everything was great, and all the food was cooked perfectly and came out really fast. Our server Ellen was awesome and so was the rest of the staff. And even when the whole place is booked it feels quiet and cozy and very romantic. Made our Valentine’s very special :)

    It’s a beautiful restaurant with a nice ambiance from the time you walk in. The staff was very gracious and kind to my two toddlers which isn’t always the case in restaurant settings (especially nicer establishments). All 5 of our entrees were delicious. I would definitely recommend Vivian’s Table for an upscale dining experience!

    Date night in Bristol. Vivian’s Table was the perfect choice. My scallops were perfectly cooked and presented on a bed of risotto with spinach. My wife had the salmon. Both dishes were awesome. The baked potato and squash au gratin were also delicious and well prepared. We’ll eat there again next time we travel to Bristol.

    We decided to take our kids to Brunch on Sunday to Vivian’s Table. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. From the food, to the drink recommendation to the overall service and atmosphere, it was all wonderful. We will definitely be back again for another delightful dining experience.

    Appetizers were great. Main course was a different story. Scallop dish came out cold like it got cooked with the appetizers but left in kitchen until the rest of dinner was done. Ribeye dinners.. baked potato was warm at best not hot enough to melt the cheese that it came out with and although we ordered Pittsburgh Rare no char came out on the steak. Steak was bland and look flash boiled… not broiled, boiled. Disappointed at what the internet called one of the more fancy restaurants in the area.

    My husband and I met a couple of friends for brunch on Saturday. We each ordered something different from the menu and each had a delicious meal - flavorful and made with fresh ingredients. We will definitely be back! The location is ideal if you are visiting the Beginning of Country Music Museum.

    I’m a local… was trying to think of something different for breakfast. Decided to give the hotel restaurant a try; it was MUCH more than a “hotel restaurant”. Not only was the food great, it was a beautiful environment… and the best part was our server, Crystal. So so sweet & attentive!

    We arrived and were told that there would be a wait even though we had reservations for a set time. After 15 minutes a table opened and we were seated. It took another 10 minutes before we got drinks. The appetizers we wanted were not available—they had sold out. The main course was ok, but the kitchen ran out of mashed potatoes. Who runs out of mashed potatoes??? The only dessert left was the cake and it was not good. My wife had been looking forward to the crème broulee and I wanted the chocolate espresso but we were stuck with the very dry and hard to cut cake wit rainbow blobs on top. Yuck There was no clock, no time, so we did not know it was midnight. The music on the speakers was out of place—80s rock? So overall, not a good experience and I would not be inclined to return. It was definitely not worth the price. The server/kitcken/manager did not apologize to us for the inconveniences of the appetizer or dessert. For a high quality hotel such as The Bristol Hotel, this was an sad.

    Food as always was excellent, service was excellent, atmosphere was great, loved it all. For the rooftop dance, the area was too cold around the bar to enjoy. Many ladies love to wear their prettiest dresses and was not warm enough for them to enjoy. You coujd still have the outside area in use, just don’t leave the doors open.😀

    Was our first experience at Vivian’s and I was extremely impressed. The food presentation and taste were both phenomenal. The salmon from the grill was the star for me followed right after by the duck poutine. The restaurant itself was modernly designed and spacious. Perfectly lit and the noise level was at a minimum, which is nice when you are celebrating a romantic evening with your significant other. So all in all a wonderful place and a definite repeat spot.
