Wait staff was very accommodating in helping me a table to my preference. Quickly becoming a favorite. The second Mule Arrabiatta we were served had WAY too many jalapenos and was undrinkable.
Rarely go here and was almost immediately reminded why. Service was slow and inattentive. The food took way too long to arrive at the table and the waitress seemed to know it, because she didn’t check on us for quite some time until right after the food finally arrived. I’d expect a lot better for a $15 eggs benedict, $13 French toast (that didn’t have the fruit compote that was described on the menu), and a $5 side of bacon.
Took FOREVER. (over 2 hours for brunch). Obviously was a problem with the kitchen, not the server. There were problems with everyone’s food. We eat here a lot but today was huge disappointment. Will probably wait a while to return.
Great brunch items, 2$ mimosas and bloody marys
Our party was very pleased with the food, its presentation and its taste. The only mild negative is that it was sometimes difficult to understand the waiter, who spoke very fast and slurred his speech a bit.
Vivace is a Sunday Brunch must! Creative ingredients for both the food & drink. Excellent service & atmosphere as well.
Great food! The Brussel sprouts were amazing. I was not able to finish all my food and the shrimp and grits was great even later on. I highly suggest checking it out.
Thanksgiving buffet not enough food for all guests
We went to Vivace for its regular menu on Thanksgiving and they only served a traditional Thanksgiving buffet. Then when I requested a vegetarian dinner I was given a mix of 3 vegetables that were raw and undercooked. Dessert was minimal and very few options.
Our first time for Thanksgiving, we loved it and we will be back again.
Had a great time with a couple of friends, I definitely would recommend this place!
It was a quite Sunday night out with my mother-in-law. It was perfect noise level and ambience. Waitress was great. Food was good.
$2 mimosas were a great deal! And the pane dolce is a must, everything was so yummy!
Brunch was very good and the $2 mimosas and bloody mary’s didn’t hurt. I’ll definitely be back!
Went on a brunch date here, and the food and service was amazing. I will definitely recommend Vivace to any and everyone. I had the Shrimp & Grits and it was great! I love the mimosas as well. I will be returning.
Customer service was the biggest disappointment. When I go to a high end restaurant, I expect Fantastic staff. The first hostess was great, she opened the door for us and welcomed us with an enthusiastic smile, but the girl behind the podium never even looked up at us, and didn’t even speak to us until we’d been standing there for a good 2 minutes. When the first waiter came to pour our water, he didn’t speak to us, nor did he respond when each of us said “thank you”. The waitress that took our order spoke so softly we could barely hear her, and she had incredibly awkward timing, making it a very uncomfortable experience as we ordered. It was my friend’s birthday, and I’ve honestly seen people treated better for their birthday at a buffet than they did here. They gave her a complimentary (non-acholic) Drink and some plain vanilla gelato with a candle, but it felt pretty pathetic for such an upscale restaurant. Finally, my food was just decent, I didnt finish it, nor did I ask her to box the leftovers (which I *always* take home a leftover container!) it definitely was not worth the price tag and I feel like I could cook the same thing (probably even better) at home. The only thing worth anything was the view from the balcony and the ambiance of the restaurant. I dont plan to go back anytime soon though. Very underwhelming.
Really enjoyed the food. Spilt a pasta dish as an appetizer and it was so big we split it 3ways. Loved my duck dish and everyone else enjoyed their meal. Looking forward to going back 😃
First time and we loved it! From the hostess stand to the server - everything was great. The food was exceptional - I was very surprised and we will definitely be back.
Great brunch spot! Loved the quiche. Brought my friend from Atlanta there and she loved it as well!
Food was tasty. Try the Brussels sprouts! Servers were the bartenders, so it was hard to find them. They didn't come around as often and we had to search them out to pay the check.
Absolutely on the top of my list! Best shrimp and grit hands down. Mackenzie was fabulous and the raspberry scones and the rosemary biscuits sealed it!
The food took a while to arrive. Then low and behold I get my pesto chicken and it was still clucking. The chicken was raw in the middle. Terrible experience and I do not plan to recommend or come back to Vivace. Q
Good service, food had good flavors, cook temp's had issues---very under for Medium duck, salmon was 'off' but reaponse of service was good. All in all, good exeperience with some hurdles
I’ve been to Vivace multiple times. Each time for a meal with friends and I’ve ordered the same thing... the bolognese. All visits up to now have been excellent with superb food. Tonight the service was excellent with the normal attentive and polite staff (thanks Joseph). However, my first order of bolognese came out warm and that’s generous. The pasta was undercooked... no where near al dente. The manager immediately exchanged it and had the meal prepared again. It was still just ok... not like I remembered it in the past. My friend had 2 appetizers as her meal, the calamari and brussels. Both were well prepared, hot when served, and delicious. Overall, It was a decent experience and I’ll likely go back, but I’ll order something different.
Great experience, waiters were perfect, and food was great. Great setting for a date
I ordered the eggs Benedict, which tasted better than it looked. The hollandaise sauce was a thick mess and the poached eggs were over done. The mixed berry parfait was amazing as was the lemon sorbet. Our server messed up our order but it was quickly rectified. Service was good, however he kept coming over to our table and interrupting our conversation. In America, the wait staff is great however far too attentive. In Germany, service is very different. That's not a negative, I guess that I have to get used to being bothered every minute by your server here in the US.
Yummy food, nice place. Recommend to everyone who wants something nice for a special day.
Was hoping for something exceptional but unfortunately got mediocre.
I’ve been to Vivace for events, but this was my first time sitting in the dining room for a meal. Service was quite slow and underwhelming. Our food was great but there are plenty of other brunch spots with better service and excellent food.
It was great service and atmosphere ❤️
Over the years I had considered Vivace on numerous occasions. For one reason or another we always selected a different dining establishment. Finally we had an opportunity to go to Vivace and it was well worth the wait.
We both started with salads which were good. Actually I initially requested the lobster bisque but was told that they did not have it available that evening. We both had the salmon Special which was very good.
Latara was an excellent server. She is very knowledgeable of the menu choices. Overall it was a very good dining experience.
Fabulous Veal Scallopini!!! A joy to dine!
We look forward to our next visit!
Brunch was great! $2 mimosas!
Great contemporary Italian food. Some creative and delicious offerings
Salmon good. Pizza terrible.
The food was very tasty, both my girlfriend and I enjoyed our meals. My only complaint was that I found a few small bits of shell from the lobster and crab in the capellini. Aside from that, the food was great and the service and ambiance were as well. Perfect place for a date night.
It was my birthday brunch party! Just 5 of us but we had such a good time!
Me and wife we loved it
Overall, the food was good and the restaurant is very nice. However, service was slow, so slow we ordered appetizers and our entrees at the same time, as we had already experienced slow service. It was a special occasion dinner, where they provided a free dessert of their choice which was not tasty at all. Because it was free and a very sweet gesture we did not complain or send it back. I would suggest if providing a free dessert to celebrate, the guest is allowed to choose the dessert of their choice. Oh and not many vegetarian options, however our server was quick to let us know if a dish had meat sprinkled in it when notified one of us was a vegetarian.
Very hot on the dining area. The restaurants IG stated that they changed the mimosa pricing to $2 this weekend, but we were charged $4 so that wasn’t the case and miss-leading. Been here multiple times, but this time was underwhelming at best.
