The family style meal was amazing! Our server, Michael, went above and beyond for us. The cocktails are fabulous. We will definitely be returning soon.
Favorite place to go to treat ourselves
Excellent service and food, as expected. Thanks
Great service and food. Would come again for s special occasion
This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Edmonton. It is my go-to restaurant for special occasions or just want to sit down and have a nice long meal. Our server was very attentive as well. Excellent food and service overall.
60th birthday party, a family affair. There were 10 of us and we were seated in the private dining room, a very special upgrade as we hadn’t booked it.
Everybody had a great time and the food as always was fantastic especially the Caesar salad and the pastas - we tried three of them.
Thanks to everyone at Vivo for a great night; unrushed, great ambiance, and wonderful food which was dynamically presented.
As always, great. Tuesday, so not busy. Staff made selection for our group easy!
Group of 8 - we had a wonderful evening. Great food and cocktails!
Fantastic service by Chad who was very informative and attentive. Meal was great and enjoyed watching them make our meal sitting up at the counter. Love going back to this place. Thanks.
Always a great dining experience!
Best restaurant in the city! Food and staff are both absolutely amazing. We go here atleast twice a month.
Perfect service that was above and beyond what I expected. Food had a high price tag but worth it. You get what you pay for:-)
It was difficult to order what you wanted as a couple. Everything is served for a min of 2-3 people. So if you and your date don’t want to order the same thing you will have tons of left overs and pay way too much. We ordered Cesar salad and plain fettuccine (no meat) .. good was food but not great value. It was very expensive for what we got. If there was some chicken chunks added to the pasta it would have been more reasonable.
Fantastic Food! Exceptional Service! Thank you Pat for making it a great night!!!
Came here for my recent birthday, service was outstanding and the food was amazing.
It was our first thing there and the waiter was great. He explained how the dishes are meant to be shared, like family style. The food was amazing - best pasta we have had. I like how everything is made in house (salad dressings, pasta etc.) HIGHLY recommended!!
Overall we really enjoyed our evening. The meat/cheese platter was amazing!!!
Our server was very knowledgable and helpful.
We ordered the fettuccine based on a recommendation from someone who had come before-I was a little disappointed-it was very plain, did not have enough taste.
The chicken however was very well done.
Celebrating a birthday
Excellent food and service. Worth the drive. We had the fettuccine as recommended by our server and the wine pairing was excellent.
Server was amazing. Food was definitely good and style was unique
Food was outstanding tonight. Staff was there right when they were needed. Could not have been a better dinner.
Perfect place to enjoy a birthday celebration dinner with our beautiful daughter. Everything was amazing.
The food was delicious and the service was very good
The service was amazing and the food was even better. It was delicious and upscale. I will definitely be back.
Amazing as always !
We were excited to go here because it was so highly rated but we were disappointed as soon as we watched in the door. The hostess greeted us with a disinterested "Can I help you?" When we said we had a reservation at 6pm, she looked us up and then replied "You know your table is reserved for another couple at 8". I replied "No, but ok...". What were we supposed to say to that information? How about a "Good evening" and a smile??We looked around and the place was dead. An odd thing to say to a dressed up couple when the place was virtually empty. We showed up ten minutes late to our 6pm reservation because of the bad road conditions and traffic from the snowfall all day. We even called ahead at 5:30 to let them know we were stuck in traffic. We were seated and greeted by our server, David, who was extremely pleasant and explained the menu very well and offered recommendations. We opened the flimsy paper menu and were quite surprised to see the extremely high prices. We had been to Michelin Star restaurants for these prices. With prices this high, I don't expect to sit at a table that is chipped and lacking any decor such as candle or linens. My fork was also dirty with crusted food, I just scraped it off as I didn't want to complain or ruin the night. Also, being that the place was dead, we were seated right next to another party, about a foot away. Again, no big deal if the place is packed, but like I said, it was dead. Don't get me wrong, the food is above average, but definitely not worth the price or the hype. If it wasn't for David, I would have been extremely disappointed. He salvaged what the night was. All in all, we won't be back, oh, and we were out of there by 7:15 so plenty of time for your 8pm Miss Hostess.
Great restaurant, we were at Vivo for our first time and it was delicious. Generous portions made to share, everything we tried was delicious!
I really enjoyed dinner. The waitress was exceptional. She explained everything, attempted to speak French to the group whom were from Montreal. Very well humored, fun the waitress. Accommodated is and went above and beyond at a late hour as we came in at 9:30 pm and they close at 10 pm. The Caesar salad and gnocchi is to die for and the wine selection wonderful. So happy we went again for a 3rd time. Quality seems to be there every time.
The feedback from all who attended had great reviews. They liked the way the food was displayed as well as so very good . They will come back again and would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
very noisy and loud. good service. expensive for very small pasta portions. Caesar salad was excellent.
We have been looking at this restaurant for a while now reading the reviews. Finally decided to try it tonight. It didn’t disappoint. Service was fabulous and the food exceptional. We definitely would go again. Actually we might have just found our new favourite restaurant.
Fantastic staff, fantastic food, fantastic atmosphere
Enjoyed the counter experience. Loved watching the food prep and the chefs at work! Excellent food. Attentive service. Thanks!
As per usual - Food was delicious! Service was great! Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent food & great service. Will be returning.
We had a fantastic time! The portions were plentiful and easily shared between the four of us. We enjoyed everything we ordered - the Caesar salad is a must! However, the dessert, (Nutella brownie) was slightly disappointing as an end to our meal we’ve been told to try the homemade cookies next time! We will! Definitely will be back.
Best restaurant in the city. Staff is amazing, food is amazing. Best place to sit is looking right into the kitchen.
We love Vivo! Great food every time. Always fresh and local when ever they can. We often order a second dinner to take home because we live over an hour away!
Food was very good our waiter was excellent. It is very pricey for some of the less authentic options eg: roasted potatoes.
The pasta with seafood was excellent; however, the sea bass was overcooked and had a charred flavour, as well as the prosciutto wrapped asparagus. The asparagus was completely charred, with the burnt side turned down. When we told the server, he apologized and said he would tell management. He then gave us a dessert board we didn’t want. This used to be our go-to restaurant for our anniversary or to go with friends. We would always order the sea bass on prior occasions, which should melt in your mouth.
