    Our waitress was amazing! She even had the chef make something special for us since we were on a date. The food was excellent. The steak was a little under seasoned for my taste, but I’m no expert, and we still loved it. We’ll definitely come back.

    What a cute space. Minimalist and tasteful in its decor. The service (Kate) was outstanding. She was attentive without interfering, allowing us to enjoy each course with only minimal interruption. The food was delicious and eye-catching. We will return.

    Amazing food. They didn’t want to sit us without a reservation so I went to open table and made one really fast (eyeroll). The service was amazing and the food was good. We will definitely MAKE A RESERVATION and go back. The dining room wasn’t full but I’d say they had a lot of to-go orders. Service was top notch.

    Reservations were easy on Open Table. We enjoyed the restaurant and friendly staff. I appreciate this Sunday availability. The eggs Benedict were well presented and tasty. The fruit option was more than ample. We enjoyed the tasty bread served while we waited. Having the pot of coffee at the table was convenient and the coffee well brewed.

    The restaurant decor is very nice and it was peaceful when we were there. Unfortunately the food quality was poor and the service lacking. I had steak and eggs and it wasn’t cooked properly and was bland. They provided me chimichurri sauce on request that was nothing like what it should be. It was a mayonnaise and Dijon based green sauce that was terrible. My friend had a very dry burger also cooked improperly. Further the fruit was moldy. I made a reservation prior to coming and when we showed up the server immediately said we close in 20 minutes. I said that we made a reservation so I wasn’t sure what the issue was. She eventually apologized but then we got very lackluster service. Upon departing the next day we went to get coffee and the coffee bar had run out of half and half. We asked for the canister to be filled and again we got a very lackluster response. Instead of apologizing they asked for the canister then gave it back to us to take back to the coffee bar. Shocking service for hotel as it’s not inexpensive stay. I’m staying at the hotel several more times in the next couple months in preparation for an upcoming wedding but I will not be eating at Vivian’s Table. Actually I may find a new accomodation.

    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.
