Had the prime rib (rare), asparagus and mashed potatoes. Service was outstanding. The best prime rib I have ever eaten in a restaurant. You could cut it with a fork and I did. Perfectly cooked. The Chef knows what “rare” means. Outstanding. Will definitely go back. Very pleased.

The experience was amazing, it was romantic. The waitress was knowledgeable and very polite. The food was amazing from our appetizer, dinner and dessert!!!! The shrimp pasta was delicious and the stuffed chicken was exquisite. I would definitely recommend eating there. The only thing I wish they had was some type of music because it was super quiet. But besides that everything was perfect for our anniversary ❤️ especially the chocolate moose cake !!!!!

Great food, fine dining experience. My wife had a steak which was cooked exactly as requested while I had the scallops with risotto. We started the evening with refreshments at the rooftop then came down for dinner. Great overall experience

Not worth the time. Our server was extremely slow. Spent more time cleaning the bar than serving out table. The "from the farm" charcuterie board was ok. it could have used the a little sweet to counter balance all the salty selections. I had the prime rib which was ok, but the mashed potatoes were cold. I would have asked for them to be heated, but our server did not come back until it was time for the check. My husband the rib eye steak, which he said was ok, but not worth we paid for it.

This was our second try here. Sunday brunch was much better at 4 stars. If you are staying here and don't want to drive, the party next to us were very pleased with their burgers. Otherwise, this is a pass for dinner.

Ate dinner and breakfast. Good both times; they were short staffed the only reason to give 4 stars. Wait staff was great, good humored despite being too busy.

Trout and ribeye were very good The fried green tomatoes were a bit greasy, and you only get two. The greens around them were the highlight of the dish.

The steak was one of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten. The atmosphere was very quaint and we enjoyed every minute at Vivian’s Table.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Vivian’s Table. Our food was delicious (Ribeye steak and Scallops), served hot and in a timely manner with an attractive presentation and accompanied by a nice craft beer (Green Man Porter) and iced tea. Braden, our waiter, was friendly, courteous and provided useful recommendations. The next morning, our Biscuits and Sausage Gravy was equally tasty. Josh, our waiter provided first class service. In keeping with the rest of the Bristol Hotel, the restaurant’s ambiance was a pleasant and unique mix of old and new; welcoming and comfortable.

Service was prompt, tho lacking in polish, and, overall, the meal was satisfactory. The gnocchi and lamb meatballs appetizer was rich and pleasing. Shrimp pasta entree was hearty and tasty, well-flavored. Scallops entree was overpowered by heavy and very salty sauce.
Wait staff needs more training for a “fine dining” establishment. Our used dinner dishes remained on the table through dessert.
Acoustics are not conducive to quiet atmosphere but rooftop bar is a lovely setting for pre- or after-dinner drinks.

Best stuffed chicken/mashed potatoes I have had in a restraunt. The steak was good, but overshadowed by the chicken. Little pricey, but not to bad for special occasions.

We visited The Bristol and Vivian's Table for the forth time. It's the perfect spot for a night away from home and a fantastic meal or two. Our dinner was awesome. The sea scallops are my favorite and my wife had the stuffed chicken dish, which she could not finish. Our daughter ate the leftovers when we returned home and said it was the best and that she would visit Vivian's Table soon to try the whole presentation. Don't miss the breakfast either. Fabulous.

The prime rib with au jus and horseradish sauce was excellent, as was the garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus.
Excellent service and comfortable, quiet, non crowded setting. Reasonable prices. We will definitely return for prime rib Friday.

Found this place by accident last September, then made it a point to return this past Sunday. Absolutely outstanding food, value and service. Can’t imagine spending time in Bristol without dining at Vivian’s Table. Somewhat of an eclectic menu, (PBR Mimosa? Delicious!) but something for everyone. Ask for one of Emily’s tables. One of the best servers I have encountered.

Table wasn't prepared when we arrived so we were standing with the host (who was very sweet and made light of it. She was new and was doing a great job!) in the middle of the dinning room while another lady had to set our table.
Our server took our orders and then didn't come back until after our meal was delivered. Not even to bring water. Another man, the manager maybe? Brought our dinner to the table.

My husband said that his steak was the best he had ever eaten and that is saying something. I loved everything I had and especially the fried green tomatoe. We are going to come back when the weather warms up to go to the roof top As you can see we
really enjoyed our visit.

Had the stuffed Parmesan chicken and banana bread pudding with ice cream. Both pretty good but extended wait. Glass of Pinot Grigio tasted like the cheapest wine I’ve ever had. Would NOT order that again.
