Lifetime friendship greeting to all 10 in our party, thorough explanation of menu, detailed followups on our meals' timing of delivery, instant refilled drinks, knowledge of information we had previously told her in a conversation, and detailed explanation of the restaurant's services made our Christmas dinner a night to remember. He even took photos of us in front of their... More

We have been to Viva many times over the years and while we still love the atmosphere, the menu and food quality has definitely gone downhill. They have removed many of our favorite dishes which is very disappointing. They have instituted a new rewards program which we have received emails about for several months. You are supposed to mention the... More

We were out of towners looking for a lunch break from shopping where we could also catch some football games. Siri sent us here! Inside was a beautiful, large restaurant and bar. We sat in the bar area. It was pretty empty on a Saturday afternoon. Food was delicious! I had a prime rib french dip panini - meat was... More

My husband and I always enjoy eating at VIVA. Some of the food is Mediterranean cusine and they also have other types of food on their menu. Service is excellent! If you go, ask to be seated at one of "Debbie's ( a waitress) tables." She gives excellent service and is very friendly. They only open at 11 am and... More

The only reason I did not give an excellent rating was because of the service. We had a group of around 15 and a reservation had been made. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived and were seated but no waiter/waitress came to our table. It took one of my coworkers to go ask for someone to wait on... More

When in Reading, this is my favorite restaurant for client meetings! And I am a creature of habit and almost always order the crab cake sandwich. Real crab. But their salads are consistently excellent as well.

Arrived on a Saturday evening about 630 and were advised of a 15-20 minute wait. Lots of empty tables could be seen and the line kept getting longer. After a 35 minute wait I inquired our position in line having seen others seated before us as later arrivals. Honestly not sure if we would have ever been seated had I... More

The waiter Chris, the hostess, and the manager could not have been more attentive and friendly. Very professional staff. They make a person feel very welcome. I would return for the service and a decent meal. If you want a reliable meal and great service at a reasonable price, you won't be disappointed. Plenty of parking.
