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

Been many times, always fresh, tasty and we'll prepared offerings. Flat breads like delicious little pizzas. Great bread, good oil. Salad nice... Desserts yummy! Band night Saturday, I think...check...but go early and eat, stay and linger, dance, avoid cover charge! :)

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.

What a refreshing change when I saw the Brussel sprout and kale salad on the menu. This crisp salad had nuts, cranberries and lots of flavor. The dressing was tossed with the salad and perfectly dressed. You could taste the salad with a hint of dressing. It was the perfect amount of crunch that made it delightful without being overly...
