    The beef tartar dish suffers from too much salt in the beef, making the too-salty and spiced crispy other thing with the dish unworkable. That was the bad. Everything else was amazing, including the staff and the food. The crispy duck leg…wow!

    Appetizers were good. We ordered the shishito peppers and the flatbread. The main course was a bit let down. The chicken had an excellent flavor but was dry. The potatoes had no flavor at all and were dry, too. Our server was excellent and the wine was fine.

    Food was excellent as was the service. Restaurant is very noisy, so be prepared. Also, weirdly, not a single salad on the menu. Enjoyed it, though.

    Simply the BEST! Favorites are the duck leg and the spicy meatballs from the apps menu and the vegetarian option is always excellent and lamb chops from the main menu are superb. Of course save room for the Heath Bar Crunch ice cream. Then finish off with some of Josh’s boozy coffee. Always a memorable meal.

    Vivo always delivers an outstanding experience. The menu is limited, focused, and impossible to categorize. We often share a few items from the appetizer section, but also have some of the entrees, which feature, in addition to great food, reasonable portions (like in Europe). It’s our favorite place.

    I enjoy the consistency of the kitchen. The menu has some excellent mainstay dishes as well as some seasonal offerings. The Bristol scallops are an easy go-to option for me, and last night they did not disappoint! The special appetizer was the braised beef short ribs which were cooked to melt-in-your-mouth perfection. I love the suburban location, too. It sure beats having to drive into the city on a weeknight for dinner.

    Some changes to the menu would be appreciated. It’s an overall somewhat small menu, so if it varied from season to season, I’d return more often.

    I'm not vegetarian but I do like to have veggie dishes when I dine out. So I tend not to prioritize this place since the menu is more meat-focused. But the veggie sides we had this week were outstanding. The spaghetti squash was perfectly prepared with great flavor and texture. And the braised cabbage was mind blowing. Who knew cabbage could be elevated like that?!

    We love this restaurant and have been there several times. Unfortunately, this was not our best experience. Although, the food was still good our service was below average. Our waiter was rushing us through the entire meal (8:45 pm reservation) and at the end practically pushed us out the door even though there was another table occupied and a few people at the bar. It was 10:20 pm when we walked out of the restaurant. We have had this waiter before so we will make assume he was just having a bad night. We will be back because it is a great restaurant.
