    We enjoyed the band very much,the reason we went..it was Mothers day ,I felt the waitres was nice but the service was very slow and our food took a long time and we got some of our appetizers while we had our main meal already... The portion of the pasta special was kinda small...the chicken dinner was AMAZING! I'd like to experience it again..love the decor and hope maybe we woukd get our drinks and appetizers within at least 20 minutes after ordering....

    The band was good but not really a band to dance to. Food was bad. The bruschetta was on stale bread and when we complained we were given a steak knife to cut it. That still didn’t work!

    Vivace on the drive was a good place to enjoy live music. The band was incredible and the group enjoyed dancing our night away. Happy menu was great, service was good despite being short staffed. Unfortunately the gnocchi was very bland and the corn that was served with it was badly cooked.

    We were so impressed with our visit to Vivace On The Drive. The ambience was perfect, the food was amazing and the service was very attentive. We appreciated the specials offered as well. Looking forward to going back on a night when there is live music.

    We ate from the happy hour menu and it was delicious and good value. Good cocktails. The server was very attentive. If you want to hear the live music at 7 PM go on a weekday. Otherwise, it’s 9 PM on Friday and Saturday as I understand it. I would happily go back.

    The service and atmosphere are the two outstanding aspects of our visit yesterday. Our server, Ellus, was wonderful as always. Dick, 1/2 of the owner team, came and hung out with us for a while. Such a lovely Happy Hour experience.

    I went there to see& hear Arsenic and Old Lace on April Fools.It was my first time and I always go a bit early so I can park close enough to walk there and back. Had a great time the music was great. The dancers were a joy to watch. My knees are in rough shape so I don't boogey anymore. A good time was had by all.
