    This is a favorite restaurant for my spouse and I. I enjoyed my salad but the room temp sweet potato biscuits I did not like. The banana bread offered before our meal was good but room temp as well. The banana bread was served with rock hard butter and therefore difficult to spread. My husband ordered brisket but had to settle for beef tips because the brisket was not available. However, he said it was tasty.

    The lovely stack of Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes with Ricotta and Blueberries was *wonderful* and perfect for brunch! All of us were very pleased with the excellent food (yay, Chef!), the service and the sunlight through the ample windows. We definitely plan on returning :)

    We decided to make reservations for Brunch at Vivian’s Table. We were promptly seated and were given a nut bread and water while we perused the menu. I opted for, my favorite, lemon ricotta pancakes! Bill decided on a burger with bacon, sunny side up egg, and dressed as well as home fries! We had our own pot of coffee as well. Food was excellent and service was top notch!

    We dine here often and love the food and the customer service. Thea atmosphere is usually quiet and relaxing. On this night, there was a large table that was quite loud and they could be heard all around the dining area. I'm all for having a great time but be cognizant of your noise level so as to not bother others. Otherwise, our dinners were perfect (Mediterranean Salmon and Cajun Pasta), drinks were crafted nicely (vodka martini) and service was impeccable, as always.

    Great food and service. Nice evening is to go up to Lumac's, the rooftop bar at the Bristol Hotel and enjoy the view, then down to Vivian's Table for dinner. Or vice versa. Always nice little embellishments. I had the jalapeno poppers and shared (comes with 5), then the Mediterranean Salmon and found it excellent.

    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
