First time at VivaCantina, saw a great jazz band, ate appetizers and drank beer. Fun crowd, great bartender. I'll be back with friends. Lots of free parking across the street.

Where does one start? I was part of a family group of six and we had a 4pm reservation. We got to the restaurant at 4 and we stood at the hostess area for about five minutes. There was live music playing and we could...More
