Had a long overdue catch up with a friend here for dinner. I had the Venison, it was beautiful, we didn’t have dessert but we had coffee. It was a quiet night I guess for customers so it was just the way I like it, not too crowded and noisy. Service was ok but I felt visited by the waiter far too many times, it was very annoying as we had to stop halfway through our conversations to tel him everything was just fine. I’m used to the waiter checking up on my meal once and that’s it, not more. So if this can be passed on to staff thanks. And please pass my compliments to the Chef , that venison is unforgettable and I’ll be back for more of it :)

This was our third time at Vivant. We go back because the standard of the food is very good. It is beautifully presented, always piping hot and delicious.

The food served at Vivant is the best-presented food I have ever had the pleasure of eating. The wait staff were absolutely lovely and were very helpful with recommendations from the menu. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very relaxing. My favourite part of the meal was the mango creme brulee, it was divine!

The dining atmosphere is nice and relaxing and the food is excellent. Waiting staff were very friendly and polite and there was plenty of parking in the evening over the weekend. Over all a fantastic place for dinner. Will be dining here again in the near future.

Beautiful atmosphere Food was not as described on the menu, Fish of the day was over seasoned and very salty the Creme brulee was burnt it's hard to communicate with staff when english is not their strong point and didn't understand what we were saying, just nodding their head and saying yes but we were asking a question

My husband and i won a trip to Wellington for our 19th Wedding Anniversary. We had the privilege of having our meal at Vivant. The wait staff were very attentive and polite. Our meals were perfect and very filling. They made us a beautiful desert with all the trimming as a gift for our anniversary. I will definitely be attending there again. THANK YOU VIVANT for a beautiful evening. Alison and Gavin.
