At VIVO Kitchen, we set the table for that possibility every day. It’s why everything on your plate was prepared only moments before it landed there, from ingredients brought straight from the source. It’s why we keep it local by building relationships with our neighboring farmers. Because we’re proud to be part of our South Metro neighborhood—and we want everything we do inside our four walls to open up wonderful possibilities for the people outside them, too.

VIVO always exceeds all expectations. Despite have three Christmas parties going on, the service, food preparation, and presentation just cannot be beat.
Vivo offers so much quality in everything they do. The chefs continue to impress us with everything they do. I will admit that I ordered the beef brisket two times in a row. I’ll probably do the same next time as well.
In talking to one of the servers, I was impressed that he referred everyone working there as a “Team”. It shows.
Pre-show dinner with family
My birthday turning 50!
There were no specials, and we didn’t receive any bread before our meal.
Cute restaurant. Tasty food, interesting menu. Great service.
Good option for a suburb littered with chain restaurants. Our server was a bit tardy as she was preoccupied with a larger table.
Post Thanksgiving dinner!
Had a wonderful meal with terrific service, as usual. Every entree I have tried here has been delicious and the prices are fair. The one improvement I could suggest is to reduce the noise levels in the dining room. The room is attractive but all the surfaces are hard. There is no need to pipe in 80’s pop radio above the din.
The food is always fresh and delicious! The service and ambience is great.
Vivo is consistent and a great go to for a wonderful dinner and drinks
The server wasn't very attentive.
The wine portion was a joke - $12 for 4 oz (maybe)!
The brisket sandwich had three small pieces of dried out meat on HUGE pieces of bread; the fries were soggy.
The salad was wilted.
Service was great, lunch menu was too limited. I had the harvest salad and it was so salty I couldn’t finish it. My 1/2 salad was huge but my husband’s eggs Benedict was small.
Service was excellent though, and our seat by the fireplace was perfect.
We love the atmosphere here. In the summer the patio is awesome. This is a sister restaurant to Zelo’s downtown Minneapolis. I had the pork chop dinner and it was large and the sauce was very good.
I love Vivo. Never disappoints. So awesome to have such a great place just minutes away.
I took my girlfriend here to celebrate her birthday. The service was great. We got our requested table by the window on a sunny day. The music was just right. The food was great (had the ham and brie panini with the goat cheese/red pepper soup! They brought a free yummy sundae with a candle. Great time of sharing with my long-time friend and catching up on our travels. Perfect.
Everything about Vivo Kitchen makes a dinner there a must-do experience. Everything has been excellent from the incredible flavored food, the talents of the chef staff, to the service participation of the management in making this truly a pleasurable dining experience. However, Vivo Kitchen goes well beyond just a 5-Star dining experience.
Did you know that VIVO Kitchen has a mobile kitchen? Our first experience with Vivo was their mobile condition where excellent cuisine can be prepared at almost any location. This opens up unique opportunities for family reunions, weddings and business meetings amongst other idea.
VIVO also offers two private rooms for celebrations, such as wedding parties, birthdays and business meetings. My 70th was held at Vivo and EVERYTHING was customized. This is truly the best restaurant for special opportunities.
Again, last night was nearly perfect as always. The food was incredible and the food beyond believe. The scallops were seared perfectly and the purée, second to none! Chef Dan and his team no how to make every meal a special meal for your personal preference.
Food was great! Service could of been better. Appetizer came out before we had drinks.
Food was delicious. Waiter unfamiliar with beer selections. Pushed alcohol beverages. Did not check on food after being served.
For a suburban restaurant the ambiance was far above average. The service was outstanding, the food was excellent, and the timing of the food delivery was perfect.
Sat us in front of the bathroom entrance on a tiny table that barely fit all our glasses and silverware. Menu is basic, service was lethargic. Didn’t feel the vibe. This is the second time we’ve given this place a shot; Wouldn’t go back.
The Fall menu has arrived! We were thrilled to find the Fall menu only being two days old. Everything was beyond belief as to how flavorful every dish was. We started with incredible crab cakes, with a slight kick, and concluded with the best scallops we’ve had, anywhere but VIVO. For the main course I had the beef brisket with a Demi-glacé beyond compare. One of these days I’ll found out how it was done. All I know is that it takes three days to make. My wife’s pasta was fresh, obviously homemade with a unique flavor. We’ve gone through three Fall menus and this has to be our favorite.
We were also blessed with Noah as our server. Noah really shines as a server but what makes him exceptional is that he knows and has tasted every item when the Fall menu was created.
What a great team at Vivo. See you on Wednesday!
Happy hour and delicious calamari was a great start to a delicious meal. Ordered the scallops and the special was so well done, and my wife ordered the pork chop and was extremely happy with her meal. We always have a great dining experience at VIVO
We always have a great meal at Vivo! I had the grilled filet and it was prepared perfectly. My friend had the shrimp risotto and said it was excellent. The atmosphere and service at Vivo are the best in the south metro.
Great food as usual!
This was our first time at Vivo and we will return! The restaurant is lovely - we were in the room overlooking the patio/fireplace area - would like to sit out there sometime.
The food choices were plentiful and the wine selection offered many different types of wine at various prices.
Our meals were delivered hot and were delicious.
Was very good but kitchen noise is loud 4 foot glass would make a difference
Great dinner and service...again. Nice job!!
The food was great and the atmosphere is wonderful.
Reserved a table for four to celebrate a birthday. We brought in our own top-shelf wine - and had no issues with the cork fee. What our party took issue with is where we were seated - right next to the loud kitchen galley. And I’m hearing impaired - and it was MY birthday!!
It was a truly awful experience and would never recommend VIVO to a friend nor enemy. We asked twice to be moved. A reservation that had not arrived would not know what table they were being seated at as we were told some diners had not arrived for their reserved time.
The menu choices are very limited for entrees. As for the food itself, it was subpar and not prepared well. The wait staff was uninformed as to what the specials were. Terrible!
Good food and service! Celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary.
Love the food and the atmosphere. Must try Ahi Tuna Crisps for an appetizer!
Overall the atmosphere is great, albeit a bit loud from the open floorplan. The halibut I had with the sweet corn broth was fantastic although the fish was slightly overdone but the flavors made up for that. The Colorado Peach dessert was amazing, a but on the small side but really delicious. Our server was very attentive and knowledgable and was very accommodating by offering a wine chiller when we order a bottle of white wine.
I would definitely return and I am told they are very seasonal which makes it a delight to indulge in their appropriate menu options.
Noisy in bar area on Friday night but we were seated in the quieter back room—happily! Food great s usual.
Monday at 5:15 with hardly anyone in restaurant were seated next to loud group with baby. Worst burger I ever had.
We always love Vivo. The food and atmosphere are great and staff are friendly and very efficient.
Third visit in the last 3 months and have to give a thumbs up for all of them. Service always great, food served fresh and hot. Reasonably priced and love the small portion option. Only issue is that noise level can be loud when the place is crowded. Cold air drafts by the big bay windows due to ventilation diffusers in the ceiling dropping AC air on us. Love the big patio.
Great food and service. Appreciated the extra energy of the staff which appeared understaffed.
First visit but definitely not my last. Our server was top notch, knowledgeable, friendly, and available at all the right times. Everyone else was friendly and made us feel welcome. Food was great, the best scrambled eggs I've ever had and bacon was delicious. I highly recommend VIVO!
Birthday celebration that was perfect!great food and service
Our server Nikki was the best ever. Will request her next time we are in.
