Great bartender and perfectly seared ahi. Risotto was Abrio rice with crab and clumps of parmasan​...No flavor and watery. Food is always good at viva tonight I was hoping for more from the risotto. Fun night and I will be back.

We were really excited to try a new restaurant in Los Gatos. Despite being in a strip mall, the atmosphere and decor were very chic and welcoming. The menu was impressive, as was the wine list. Unfortunately, we were seated at a very tiny table directly across from the front door, so there was a cold chill each time the... More

We have been having breakfast at VIva's for several years. At first everything was fine. Now one week it's OK, the next week our order is in total chaos. 1/7/17 was a new low: Having arrived at the restaurant twenty minutes after opening, we waited 45 minutes for our food even tho only five tables were occupied. The waiter apologized... More

We (a party of several adults) chose Viva! as our dining place for Christmas Eve dinner. Reserved through OpenTable and table was ready upon arrival. Staff was efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable of the menu. Ambiance was relaxed, very nice, and relatively quiet even though the party next to us was singing Christmas carols! In any case, the fried green bean... More

Returned to Viva for a holiday lunch with an old friend. We both had the Asian salad, she with salmon and me with grilled chicken. We both had the ginger carrot soup. We were both very, very happy. Viva is a place you'll easily miss unless you know it's there and you're looking for it. It's smack dab in the... More

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
