My family went here when we had out of town visitors. It IS a nice place and the service was fairly good, but we were all quite disappointed with the food. They just reopened recently as a Tapas Lounge. We ordered the 5 Tapas combo and were not impressed with any of them. For my entree I ordered Grouper but ended up with Mahi Mahi (they would not provide a 1/2 portion of a daily special). The fish was totally dry and overcooked and pretty much tasteless. The rest of entress were so-so. Nothing special. The total bill was reasonable, but I think we will look elsewhere next time.

Viva is a great night out on the town! The music is fun, the atmosphere is beautiful, and the food is out of this world. It can get a little too crowded on the weekends, but definitly worth it the wait.

Viva serves great food. They have a lot of options on their menu, and everything I've ever had was good. The lobster ravioli is the best. The cherry cheesecake is also to die for. The service is good, and it's a fun atmosphere.

As frequenters to the Vanity Fair Outlets, my wife and I get tired of fast food and food court food. Viva offers a quiet and comfortable place to get a wide variety of good food in a relaxed atmosphere with no pressure to vacate the table for more folks - it's big enough to accommodate quit a crowd, but the interior is broken up into ma ny intimate and separate areas. There's even a real fire in the fireplace for those nippy afternoons and evenings! We've even gone there as a destination, with no shopping, occassionally! Friendly and cheerful staff, and now a new tapas menu (go for the five items, and be sure one is the shrimp firecrackers!). Good hopuse wines and a wide variety of mixed drinks (another reviewer had trouble here, but that has not been my experience). Only shortconming is a lack of a website, to see what the daily specials are. Enjoy! Laissez les bons temps rouler (Let the good times roll)!

Cons: have to walk around to the friont freom the parking lot (moderately inconvenienet)

My wife and I enjoy having lunch together on Saturdays, because it's one of the few times we get to spend together relaxing. We came to ViVa and waited in the lounge for what seemed an eternity before someone came and took our drink order after I prompted one of the bartenders. My wife ordered a Brandy Alexander, up, and got what looked like a Manhattan on the rocks. When she mentioned it, the waitress brought back a Brandy Alexander on the rocks, from which my wife fished the ice cubes by hand. When the food finally came, though, it was fine. I guess we'll go back.

Viva is one of the newer restuarants in the area. They have a great atmosphere with good food. There is a lounge/bar with a regular dining room. On weekend they have bands play and also have other nightly entertainment available. It's a great place to go with a bunch of friends!

If you like some good old jazz or some classic music then you should go here for it. My favorite there is their steak and chicken penne sandwiches. And the atmosphere there is perfect.

PROS: Great food
CONS: jazz music

Viva is a great place to eat, listen to music and dance the night away. They offer lite fare to full course meals. On Friday and Saturday nights, the restaurant comes alive with funk dance bands. There is a large bar area offering any drink you can imagine and a dance floor.

PROS: great bands
CONS: none

have eaten hear twice the food is warm at best if its supposed to be hot or cold and the staff is sometimes freindly but most times seems overwhelmed.If they are trying to become a chain they need to get an idea who they are and not try to be everything to everybody.

Viva is located in the old Arrow corporate building but is a completely remodeled space. Great selection of live music nearly every night, and I don't know of another place in Berks County that serves wine flights. The wines are noting too unusual, but the prices are fair, and the food menu is broad with snacking and vegetarian choices. The menu and website seem to want badly to be a corporate restaurant, and lord knows that we have enough of those. But Viva is good looking and spacious and a great place to relax after work.
