Vivace Reviews

  • 5 star review  Chris and the team at Vivace add sparkling service to great food all inside a fabulous venue. The menu is just one page and normally accompanied by a couple specials. In addition the wine menu has depth and breadth to suit most budgets, and even the most discerning. This is a place where you have time and space to kick back and saviour the experience, and there is no doubt that some will mention the accompanying pricing reflects the experience. In summary, highly recommended!

  • 5 star review  Thanks to Chris and the team, and especially Alex, for providing us with yet another fabulous and memorable occasion at Vivace. Despite having been regulars there for the last 10+ years, Vivace just keeps getting better. This time it was a birthday dinner for 30, and it couldn't have been better! Our guests were raving about the wonderful food and the, even better, service. Alex was so attentive and engaging, with nothing being too much trouble. Keep up the amazing work, which I know you all will!

  • 5 star review  Great to see the Vivace team back. Nice to sit in the restaurant. Food as always was great. Service great but relaxed even though they were working to strict guidelines. Call out to bayside, support local and make the close out to the year a great one for Chris and the team and our other fine restaurants.
