The atmosphere and wait staff were great. I had a large Caesar salad topped with grilled steak. My friend and I opted for cafe mochas instead of dessert. The Aztec mocha was perfect. The spicy flavorings were subtle and delicious. I recommend Viva and would definitely return.

Met a friend for a weekday lunch this week. At high noon we were immediately seated, on the patio at our request. I had a salmon lunch entree that was generous in size and well-executed. The service was decent. The patio is dog-friendly. The price point is a bit steep for a strip-mall eatery and for the food itself for... More

Viva! is a great restaurant hidden in the very center of a strip mall at the intersection of Blossom Hill Road and Los Gatos Blvd. My first two visits occurred within a week of each other. One lunch and a birthday dinner. As you enter, the place looks like maybe it's an upscale casual restaurant however the menu is further... More

I've eaten at Viva a handfull of times in the past and always liked it. I had lunch there today with friends and the food was good, but a bit overpriced. I had the beet salad and it was tasty, but not $22 worth of tasty. Service was good. We sat on the patio and stayed for three hours. It... More

The staff was amazing. Seated right away. Wow! The first sole of wine clean the pallet after the fresh made cream of mushroom soup. Just to dive in to the braised short rib. OMG the house cab pairs perfectly. Although the rib itself was not as tender as I would expect. The sauce was great with it. The atmosphere was... More

So this review is ONLY for Mothers day brunch. I can't give a review of their regular menu. So I used OpenTables suggestion for Mothers day brunch and went to Viva. It wasn't terrible it was just okay. By okay I mean at $35pp I expected a little higher quality. The food was not bad, it just wasn't worth the... More

Viva has fun flight nights. 4 "tastes" & an appetizer for about $17. (appetizers are creative & compliment the wines). Seems like wine is every other Tuesday evening, with liquor on other Tuesdays. Fun place, great vibe

I've dined here a number of times. I live on the East Coast but grew up in this area, so visit a couple of times a year. My mom and I had lunch at Viva. We were hungry and each went for an entree. My mom had the tilapia (may have been filet of sole, but was a white fish)... More
