I like the fresh approach to the dishes on their menu and the food is good! It's located just a block or two from the busier area of downtown, so I actually found the parking a bit easier. Nice staff and a nice, bright space...More

It was a bit too pricey for lunch. The seafood was fresh, but too spicy 🌶 for my taste. It was hard to find parking. The service was good.

We went for lunch. Started with Gaucamole and chips and drinks. Excellent gaucamole - very fresh and tasty - highly recommended. All the dishes we ordered were very good - especially seafood entries. A bit pricey for lunch though.

A group of 10 work colleagues descended on this place with very little plan. The staff provided fantastic service and selection across the board. Food was excellent and great value. Fast. Will be returning at some point with the family.

Short story: incredibly original drinks, staggeringly delicious ceviche, and tacos that are probably illegal in other states as they are too good. Long story: This place is great for America. Period. In our long tradition as a nation born from a colony, immigration is one...More

This is LV Mar's sister restaurant so you know you will get great food! This is a much more relaxed atmosphere and a bit loud, but the food is great!! Get the whole Branzino, it's awesome. PULPOS SALTEADOS is awesome also, you can't go wrong...More

The name "La Viga" derives from the massive central seafood market in Mexico City where our chef Manuel Martinez comes from. Chef Manuel brings the freshest local sustainable ingredients to create uniquely bold flavors with a focus on seafood with latin influences. His recipe is simple: "The right use of Latin ingredients, diverse cooking experience, and the right value equals great guest satisfaction."
