Delicious and great service. A lot of menu options that looked interesting.
Vivo is our favorite restaurant, as usual the food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great, Sam is an exceptional chef who always serves delicious, creative options for appetizers and entrees
one of my favorite restaurants , Best in Sewickley Pa
Mother’s Day. The appetizers are amazing.
Had to wait for table while people who came in 15 minutes after us were seated immediately. Very noisy. Did not have first choice of entree. Both meals were just ok and over priced for lack of quality.
Service and drinks were very good.
Very creative and unique offerings, especially the appetizers. Had an delicious golden yellow Riesling with my fish entree( branzino stuffed with ramps) and the 8 oz wine pour is impressive.
The only negative is the noise level which is super energetic and makes conversation difficult especially for older folk who are hearing-challenged.
We went to Vivo with my daughter and son-in-law. Our starters were fine. Note that Vivo is not BYOB but like many wine lists in restaurants always check with the server on the advertised vintage. I went through a selection change. The mains were somewhat late in arriving but did so while I was in the gents room. As it turned out my prime rib eye ordered medium rare was actually medium well. Our server took it back to the kitchen and returned indicating that the chef agreed it was overdone - like I was seeking his agreement! And did I want it remade?- Hell yes! I later learned from my dinner guests that our server told them (in my absence) that my steak was the "culprit" for the delay in arrival of our entrees. By the time I received the properly prepared steak, the rather expensive bottle of wine had been consumed and offering a classless on the house would have been at least appropriate but was not in the cards. I have dined at Vivo on several occasions and have been greeted by the owner chef. I am chalking this bad experience up to the server's lack of attention and cheeky attitude.
Always a great dinner.
The food was amazing and the service impeccable! I would highly recommend Vivo Kitchen.
We went here to celebrate a graduation. The main courses were all meat options and not very interesting. The flavor of the meat was okay. Just seemed the cost did not match the experience. If it was not so expensive, I think it would have been worth it. The appetizers and desserts were very good and moderately priced. It was just the entree that we were disappointed in.
We've been going to Vivo occasionally for the last 10 years and it never, I mean NEVER, disappoints. The staff is friendly and informed, the food is inspired and delicious, the service is always prompt and attentive. Can't say enough good stuff about this place.
Last night’s dining experience at Vivo was perfection! The bronzino, ribeye & appetizers were all fantastic & service (Ed, Lori) was attentive as always. We just love dining at Vivo!
Vivo Kitchen consistently offers a unique menu with all items prepared perfectly. The wine list is not extensive but many interesting selections are available for successful pairings with any meal.
Vivo’s offers an opportunity to indulge in a full-blown amazing meal or meet friends for a late snack and well-created drink. Either way, you will be happy. And ... someday, when the weather is great, I will be excited to sit on their patio!’
We started out with the Shishito Pepper appetizer and the Octopus appetizer and were not disappointed! The peppers were simply prepared but delicious! The octopus was tender and delicious- prepared wonderfully:-) My husband had the scallop entree with a vegetable side (zucchini & sunchoke?). He loved it! The scallops were tender and cooked perfectly. I had the Arctic Char with three kinds of broccoli. It was AMAZING! I have never had this kind of fish but if this is what it tastes like, then I will definitely be eating it again! My husband also had the lemon creme brulee' dessert and said it was amazing as well.
The restaurant also works well with food allergies. I am allergic to gluten and casein and my husband is allergic to gluten and we had plenty of food choices.
On another note, they use environmentally friendly food containers for leftovers. I was VERY happy not to be given styrofoam! Thanks Vivo!
another great evening at Vivo. Sam and Lori make very guest feel welcomed. Our server was attentive, but not hovering, every course was delicious. This has been one of Pittsburghs best spots for years. If you appreciate great food and service, you owe it to yourself to visit Vivo.
Excellent as always! My favorite restaurant in all of the US!!!
Always a wonderful experience at Vivo!
Fabulous food, setting, service and drinks as always! This is always our first choice for any night out we get!
Dining at Vivo is always a great experience. It's where you can bring a client, hold a meeting, gather with friends, celebrate an occasion or simply settle in for a couple of appetizers with a great glass of wine. Sit at the bar and chat with others. Sit in the window and catch the energy in the village. Whatever you choose, the food will be consistently prepared and expertly presented.
Vivo absolutely blew us away! We went here for our anniversary and the food was incredible, the service was amazing, and we met the chef as we were dining. Well done!
Delicious food! Exceeded our expectations! Very knowledgeable waitress and very friendly staff. Excellent atmosphere!
Another terrific meal and fun vibrant crowd!
Excellent fine dining. A boutique, private feel with its perfectly small, comfortable size. The service, menu and food quality is as good as it gets in Pittsburgh. Allow an extra 5-10 minutes to find parking in Sewickley.
Meeting a friend for dinner, Vivo’s was the perfect venue for conversation, comfort and incredible food. Ed’s service - Josh’s drinks - Sam’s menu ... all incredible!!
We had a lovely meal at Vivo. We got there a little late, but they went out of their way to make sure we were provided for and that we were enjoying our meal. We greatly look forward to dining here again!
We had a delightful evening at Vivo Kitchen. As always, the food was just fabulous, especially the forest mushrooms and the porterhouse steak. The atmosphere is intimate without feeling crowded, and the service was spot on. Thanks for a wonderful birthday celebration!
What a treasure in Sewickley!
We were in Pittsburgh for a conference and took a chance based on the Open Table reviews and we were just delighted!
The octopus starter, the lamb chop main course and the forest mushrooms all get rave reviews.
Thank you to the chef and owner and our lovely server Roxanne for a marvelous meal!
Great menu - but seriously overlooked boar chop. I advised server who was very apologetic; but it still ended up remaining on the bill when dinner was done. Overall small plates rock!
Food was delicious and also a great presentation of each serving!
Wait staff was attentive to our needs!
I was disappointed when I learned the manager cancelled our reservation on OPEN TABLE , We arrived 45 minutes early and we were seated with no mention of this .
We value our reputation on Open Table and lodged a complaint.
Took a vendor out for a nice meal and he was so impressed with everything from the personal touch of Sam the chef coming to the table to make sure you enjoyed your meal to the best bartender and his recommendations for food pairings.
I am a fan of Vivo. Its creative menu, delicious entrees and appetizers, good wine list, and friendly service make it one of my favorites. I am awaiting warmer weather so I can dine on their lovely patio.
We had a wonderful evening. The staff is warm and friendly. The food is creative and healthy. We are never disappointed.
Hadn't been to Vivo in a few years. Dinner was terrific. Now anxious to go back. Wine list is good and not overpriced. Sam and Lori's hospitality is the best in the city.
We enjoyed a birthday dinner with sister & brother-in-law visiting from Miami. Delicious small plates and wine.
As always, the friendly atmosphere is only over shadowed by the clean, well prepared meal.
Always a great meal at Vivo. There was no pasta on the menu but we know Sam makes a great sauce, and sure enough, we got a side of pasta with red sauce upon request.
The chef's daughter's restaurant, Bite, used to be our favorite. When it closed and we learned of the connection to Vivo, we wanted to check it out. We finally did and it was amazing. It may even become a favorite. Fun and delicious starters. Substantial portions of excellent fare. Can't wait to go back.
The food preparation at Vivo is consistently exceptional. The food is never overloaded wiht spices or overcooked. You get the true taste of the food. A good test for me is when we ordered the Artic Char we were not asked how we wanted it prepared. It cam out rare which made it delicious. Too many restaurants overcook their fish. Never at Vivo. The wine list is very nice. Vivo is without a doubt one of this city's top restaurants.
