I'll just say why I gave this place two stars right away: there was mold on my dessert. I ordered the almond torte, and they served it to me with a nickel sized green mold chunk on the side of it. It was OBVIOUS in the dimly-lit dining

With an amazing array of choices on the menu this place is truly a great dining experience. Although I can agree with some previous reviews of some food being overcooked the simple solution is to simply clarify with your waiter how you like your food. They are incredibly accommodating, professional and friendly. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, a beautiful dining room and the bar area is always upbeat and interesting.
The absolute best however is the outdoor patio. Cannot be beat! Hidden away in a courtyard type setting this oasis should not be overlooked. Happy hour at its best!
My personal favorite...the seafood linguini 'portugese style' keeps me going back for more. Enjoy!

We visited last night for my birthday with a group of 6 for dinner.
The last time we were at Viva Fernando was last August '09 and our experience was better and the food was a higher qualtiy. This place has definitely gone DOWN hill from that point in time. We used to LOVE eating at Viva Barcelona, at there on our wedding night and were sad to see it go. Along with the name went the recipes and quality. Portions are very small now. The size of the filet was laughable. The previously well-known stuffed mushroom caps are so small now and they are stuffed with a crabmeat "sludge" that is absolutely disgusting. Its a fishy tasting breadcrumb paste that resembles caulk. They apparently use this sludge on everything from the mushrooms to crabcakes to entrees. No crabmeat could be found... Menu is misleading. Two of us made the mistake of ordering crabmeat stuffed shrimp - shrimp - rubbery and instead of using actual crabmeat, they used this pasty sludge again. It is used for everything there! Could not get the taste out of my mouth for the entire night and was sick from it. Maybe it had passed over? or a Lake Erie dead carp was ground up in mine. VERY EXPENSIVE restaurant and quality of food has gone downhill tremendously. We MISS Viva Barcelona and the sister restaurant, Mallorca. NOT worth the money. NOT worth the upset stomach.

Pros: Wait staff is friendly and of high quality

Cons: Food is NOT what you would expect, especially for the price

.

Can not compare to it's Sister restuarant Mallorca. It doesn't have the spanish wait staff or the great service as it once did. the Food is way over priced and not as tasty as back a couple of years ago. Must be different cooks. I woul not recomend this restuarant. It has really gone down.

Pros: more then enough parking

Cons: the whole experience

Okay to be honest the service was excellent and the ambiance is nice. The wait staff was prompt, attentive and polite. But, the food was a major disappointment. I had the grilled shrimp. They were overcooked to the point of being dry and were also under spiced. My companion had the Paella ... that was a major disappointment --- the seafoods in the paella were all overcooked. I think the reason people like this place is that they serve very large proportions of red meat ..the prime rib looked really good .. but, I didnt go there for that.

Viva Barcelona is a restaurant you cannot pass up. The food is wonderful, the prices are great, and you could not ask for a better staff. Everyone there is so friendly and helpful that you feel like you are in an elegant restaurant on a first class cruise ship. The new outdoor patio is absolutely wonderful!
