Mediterranean

Our Culinary Team believes in using only the highest quality ingredients that will never compromise the integrity of the dish.

The restaurant’s upscale vibe resonates with old world authenticity.

    Food was fabulous as was the service. Should have been told there was no outside seating & asked for candle on dessert that was not given either. Some sort of party was going on & noise level was loud.

    Hadn’t been to Vivo since my birthday “pre-COVID” (it was fantastic at that time!)and it was a big disappointment. First, we were seated next to a table of about 14 that were obviously celebrating something, which made it nearly impossible for us to have a conversation without having to yell at each other. Although our server was friendly, the service was slow and spotty. It seemed somewhat disorganized. The food was equally disappointing. Two of us had the rigatoni bolognese, which was very tasty, but the braised short rib of beef, which the other two of us ordered, was terribly under seasoned and lacked any flavor and the accompanying mashed potatoes amounted to about 2 or 3 tablespoons full. Skip the desserts. One couple shared the affogato brownie sundae and the espresso was too bitter to use and my wife had the cheese cake with lemon curd - meh! I had the pear cobbler and expected so much more - it was bland and the peaches were still somewhat crunchy. Not at all what I expected it to taste like. Sorry Vivo! If the food was 4 star, I would have given you an equivalent review, but this time, not so much. Maybe we’ll give you another shot?

    The food was very creative, fresh, and authentic. Thumbs up to the kitchen staff. Natalia our waitress was excellent, she was very attentive but still gave us our space to enjoy our dinner. She made some very good recommendations, but what stood out was her personality, made the entire experience even better. Thank you to the entire staff.

    We were taking my mother in law out for brunch for her 82nd Birthday! When we arrived, we were greeted by a welcoming, friendly, and courteous host who asked how many, then walked us to a table and then asked if we had a reservation, when I said the name, he immediately knew about my reservation. He was on top of everything! My mother in law ordered a Bloody Mary and didn’t realize there was alcohol in it so he immediately told her he would get her a virgin one and offered the other one to one of us at the table, of course we took it on the house :) so nice! He was amazing with my son! The food came out perfectly timed and it was good. We will definitely come back! This type of service will get me coming back time and time again!! Also the place is beautiful! The outdoor area is lovely!

    We went for Easter brunch. We were ask to wait at the bar, the bartender were super attentive and made great drinks. When we were moved to our table , nobody came over to use even though we made eye contact with the head waitress in charge she looked the other way . I had call her over (she did not look please that I told her if she could take our order ). She sent over a waitress who seem to be training, was very sweet but clearly did not have experience. I had to ask twice for plates to be cleared and to get new silverware. The head waitress in charger was not pleasant and would not even make eye contact when we asked her any questions. The food was okay, thought they would have more variety.

    So happy to see Vivo reopening! Their menu selections are superb, their drinks sublime, and the renovation is beautiful. We enjoyed the mussels in a marinara sauce and the chicken in a balsamic sauce. Try their Sangria too! We will be going to their Thursday night dinners with live music - heard it was fantastic. Welcome back Vivo!

    At the recommendation of a friend I booked a reservation at VIVO Mediterranean -- I'm so glad I did! When you first walk in, the atmosphere is elegant, comfortable, and welcoming -- almost like walking into a relative's beautiful home and they say, "please come in and make yourself comfortable, my home is your home." As if that wasn't enough, the service and food was top-notch. The selection of wines and mixed drinks was downright awesome. My party of eight ordered a variety of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Their family recipe for the shrimp, tomato sauce, and feta cheese appetizer was to die for. The squid ink home-made pasta, variety of fish, chicken, and steak dishes were exceptionally delicious. The desserts, especially the affogato (mine was spiked!!!) will be my "usual" when I go there. All-in-all it was a happy, wonderful, and delicious night. We will be back!!!

    Great food, excellent service, and beautiful decor make this a spectacular place to spend an evening. The restaurant is easily accessible from both the Cross Island and Clearview Parkways and there is plenty of parking in two adjacent lots. Perfect for a celebration with a large group or an intimate dinner, I can’t recommend VIVO enough!

    We had Thanksgiving dinner there. The first time going out to dinner for Thanksgiving. Was looking so forward to dinner at Vivo as I eat there frequently. It was sadly disappointing. The service was poor as the kitchen could not keep up. The food was subpar. I think they had too many choices on the menu and unexpectedly had too few workers. Still love Vivo, but was greatly disappointed.

    VIVO Mediterranean Grill & CateringResponded on November 30, 2021Thank you for your honest review. We do realize we ran into some service issues on Thanksgiving. By the way of explanation, not excuse, several large parties arrived well past their reservation times and caused a backup. We appreciate your continued patronage and we sincerely hope this set back will not keep you from coming back to VIVO! Sonja Nicaj
