The meal was excellent. Service was also very good. Great wine list and cocktails available from the bar. I would definitely recommend.
We love Vivo Kitchen! Never had a bad experience there. Will be back again soon . . .can't wait for the outdoor seating.
Great food and great service. One of our favorites in the Pittsburgh area.
I don't think they update the menu that often, which disappointed me when we sat down. However, they have so many greatest hits, that our meal was spectacular. Can't wait to come back, but will need to plan ahead. Always need a reservation!
Vivo is one of the consitantly superb and creative restaurants through the inspiration and work of chef Sam Sabatino Dibatista
We had a great experience. The burrata flatbread was fantastic!
We took friends to Vivo for dinner and everything was excellent. The octopus appetizer and the beet salad and the sweet peppers & burrata were perfect starters for dinner with selections from a great wine list. The Alaskan Halibut was very moist and flakey and the bison was a perfect medium rare. We finished with delicious desserts that are made in-house. Sam and his staff deserve all of the accolades that Vivo is given.
My guests shrimp entre was very good. She also enjoyed the pork meatball. My bison was tough. It was a very large portion . Had a few bites but could not eat it. My first bison. Will never have that again.
Always great food. Always great service. THE most consistent restaurant in Pittsburgh. Nuff said..
Top notch. Great food and service
Food was very good. "Starter" prices were fair. Entree prices were very high. I had the Big #ss porter house which was very good but not worth $39. The sauce on the steak was excellent, very flavorful (savory). I loved it! The only reason I didn't give a higher rating is that my wife ordered the Halibut which was good but a very small portion for $29. You should not walk away hungry when you spend that much on a dinner. If you can get past the above its a nice place with very good food.
Vivo has been a favorite of ours for the last 10 years. The service is always friendly; the waitstaff is knowledgeable about the meal prep; and the food never disappoints. We'll keep coming back, for certain!
Vivo is the best restaurant in this city. It's small, intimate dining room, the executive chef and owner mingling with diners, and the overall quality and care of the dishes make this more than just a meal, but an immersive dining experience. If you've never been, please do yourself the favor and make the trip.
Vivo is our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh and they never disappoint. We always do small plates and here is what we
recommend. Start off with the cheese board and fresh bread. Next try the pork ribs and brussels. After that go for the meatballs and burrata flatbread. For dessert try the salted carmel cheesecake and affogato.
Fantastic wine bar with nice selection of starters and main entrees (with seasonal accompaniments). Whole atmosphere is farm to table. So many great starters I was tempted to just order a few for a meal. Bartender/server was thoughtful with recommendations based upon my selections. The whole crispy fried chicken was excellent as well as the side of Brussels Sprouts with smoked bacon. Very nice experience. Highly recommend. Small place so make reservations and small seating area at bar to accommodate parties of 1 or 2!
Great food, service is knowledgeable of what they’re serving and are very pleasant to deal with.
I would recommend to a friend, but our server really failed us in too many ways.
This was my second visit to this restaurant. The food and service is over the top. Our waiter was so helpful with the food regarding what to order. It was so refreshing to have waitstaff that know the food so well and can honestly make the best recommendations. Thank you! We will be back again and again.
We decided just to have several appetizers and everything was excellent. Wish we could’ve eaten more.
Our server Casey was phenomenal. She expertly guided us through the menu. We ended up getting an array of appetizers which she coordinated with the kitchen for releases of complimentary flavors. Bravo!
Food was excellent!
There are those places that feel like home - except you don’t have to do the dishes!! Vivo’s is such a place. You will make new friends OR have a private, intimate dinner. Regardless, you will walk away pleasantly satiated - in all areas.
One of our favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent and thoughtfully prepared.
Great service. Always love the beet salad and the scallops with black garlic! Amazing!
We enjoyed dinner at Vivo Kitchen.
Always delightful and tasty. Service spot on. One of the few places I order dessert. Portions are the right size. Must try the shishito peppers!
Lovely dinner. Vivo has a strong and creative menu for every occasion and continues to thrive. Service was very attentive. We'll be back again.
Had Better service. Waitress got bunch of stuff wrong
My husband and I had a wonderful dinner for our anniversary. My husband normally isn't able to find food he likes at trendy restaurants, but this one was an exception. The Bison was fantastic, and who knew that beets and goat cheese mix so well?
We have lived in Sewickley for 16 years and Vivo is Sewickley's best restaurant. The food is always prepared with care, the choices are diverse, exciting, and satisfying without being pretentious. The bartender Josh is incredibly skilled and creative - - a smart guest will simply name a liquor and say "Dealer's Choice" and be well pleased. And the staff is pleasant, responsive, and knowledgeable. Delightful.
Amazing food and amazing service!
Enjoyed a delicious dinner in a vibrant environment. Wait staff seemed to be limited and sometimes had to wait between contacts. Knowledge of the waitress with regard to dish preparation could have been stronger. Overall a good experience and I will likely dine there again.
A wonderful evening, as usual, at Vivo. The wine pairings with our New Year’s Eve dinner were perfect.
What's better then an amazing menu and perfect wine pairing for New Year's Eve. Chic but cozy setting makes you feel at home.
Used to dine at their Bellevue location and it was outstanding. This was first time at Sewickley location and we were very disappointed. Tables are so close together, you can hear your neighbors' conversations, and as people were being seated, my husband was bumped into. Food was just average. Although tasty, soup was served lukewarm, strange textured beet on salad, mushrooms on polenta were dry and tasteless, pork osso bucco was tender but not juicy. The pork was served over a cabbage cake with a red sauce. Sauce was very good. Dessert was a chewy cookie with whipped cream and chocolate and caramel sauce. It was good. Do not recommend early seating if you enjoy a leisurely dinner as we were asked to leave before finishing my cocktail as they had people waiting, even though it was obvious we were finishing up and would be leaving soon. They indicated on the reservation confirmation that an early seating could be subject to a two-hour maximum. We were asked to leave prior to that. For a total bill of $300 for two people, I expected more. It was very embarrassing. Only gave two stars for service based on being asked to leave. The actual server did a fine job.
We have written several stellar reviews for Vivo Kitchen. We appreciate very much having this warm and yummy restaurant in our neighborhood.
The food was excellent. Service very good even though our waitress got a large table of 8 or more to serve while we were there. Still got in and out in the time we expected. Noise level is a bit high because it is a small space and open from front to back with bar in same area.
Vivo is always great. Sam does a great job of making you feel at home plus creates awesome food! We had the bison strip, short rib and shrimp dishes, all outstanding. The meatballs are the best in the city! The wine list is very good and don’t forget to try the bourbon mules...fantastic! This place is a don’t miss when in the Sewickley area!
Our food at Vivo is always outstanding!!
We always love everything with Vivo. Food and service are perfection.
