The food and service were excellent. Nothing we ordered disappointed but are standouts were the carpaccio, tuna, hummus chips, eggplant fries, rigatoni (would seem heavy but it wasn’t. Amazing), and the rhubarb tart.

Decadently delicious! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Langdon Hall in the main dining room. We started with their freshly baked sourdough bread and chive and gruyere bread. Next, we were presented with a delicious amuse bouche of their house-made ricotta and mini lettuce leaves, topped with the petals of a citrus plant and served on a piece of natural slate. We both chose the Beets and Berries appetizer and we both thought it was outstanding! I chose the sable fish while my husband chose the chicken. Again, we were both impressed with the delicious, mouth-watering taste of our entrées. We had no room left to sample the dessert choices with our coffee and blueberry tea but our server brought us each a mini-muffin and a jellied apricot bite! Just a perfect meal! Compliments to the creative chef!!

The food items were prepared with great care and beauty. Everything on the menu tasted delicious. I would definitely go back and hopefully during another season, so we can try different things. Highly recommend it if you looking for a unique dinning experience!

Not only the best Steak Dinner I've ever had but quite possibly the best meal I've ever had. Everything was great from the Drinks (Savio 75 cocktail and Superflux Beer Companies Happiness IPA) to the 42 oz. special bone-in Ribeye. Their Kale Salad is always a hit along with the Beef Carpaccio and Tuna Crudo. Of course when you come I also recommend getting a special appetizer of some sort. In our case it was stuffed Morel Mushrooms with fennel sausage with home made mustard sauce and cabbage. Every pasta dish is delicious I'm sure and they always have a Vegetarian and Pescatarian option available. I have only ever tried the Agnolotti and Puttanesca.

Excellent experience. The server (Lola) was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. I was especially impressed at how she made sure that our dishes came out according to what went well together. Regarding the meal itself, what stood out to me the most is that each dish featured one star ingredient (cabbage, tuna, melon, etc) and in each dish, I could taste exactly that ingredient. The sauces and garnishes were there to enhance and complement it, but never hide it. This tells me that they take pride in the ingredients and are not using heavy extras to hide a lower quality ingredient or errors in cooking technique. I can't wait to go back and try more things.

We ended up reserving patio seating, and it was worth it! The location did not have a lot of traffic which made the patio experience better. I usually don't go to patios because they often have high foot traffic & I just get bothered by it. In Vivo, their patio is secluded enough that you get to have peaceful conversations with your group even when there are people at the other tables. The restaurant is not hard to find and there are enough parking spaces too. Their food was also amazing and I definitely felt full after.
