  • From what we were told, ViVA used to be fantastic, but I heard that they changed management after we signed the contract for our wedding, and it was apparent. They made SO many mistakes during the planning process, communication was horrible, they changed their menu and refused to allow us to do a tasting with the menu that was assigned to us, they did not feed our photographer or DJ even though we paid for their meal, they did not put the salad dressing on the guest's salads... And those a just a small number of the errors they made. It was a huge headache from start to finish. Don't waste your money; they will cut corners as much as possible and will not live up to your expectations.

  • The food and the service was fantastic! It was everything we hoped for! The worst part about every wedding I've been to is the food and I made it my mission to make sure that wasn't the complaint at our wedding, luckily Viva made it easy for us to complete my mission! My husband and I wanted a "homestyle" feel to our food, very comfortable and tasty and it was just that! We even had a private tasting a few month's before the wedding which really helped us to narrow down our selection. The team is very responsive in the planning process, and the day of each person attempted at making it the best day it could be for my husband and I. My guests are still complimenting the food. :) Viva is a no-brainier in my book!

  • Words can NOT express how pleased we are with our wedding at Green Valley Chateau. To say that our wedding coordinator Seraphina exceeded our expectations, would still be an understatement. EVERY single one of our guests went out of their way to tell us what an amazing experience they had: service, food, venue, etc. We had guests from out of state, Philadelphia, and New York City and everyone was blown away. Viva catering is top notch. The package we selected was customized to meet our every need. The Chateau tent was simple, and elegant! and the STAFF! EVERY staff member catered to our guests! and of course Zack, the catering manager, was there to make sure the remainder of the night ran smoothly. We left behind our Kate Spade His/Hers glasses, and of course, Zack took them in his own car and had them waiting at the restaurant for us the next day. I have said this multiple times already, but I will say it again, I couldn't imagine why anyone would want to have a wedding an... Read more

  • ViVA did an amazing job catering our wedding. We worked with Rachael, and from the start she was on her game! The last few weeks leading up to the wedding she was able to answer so many of my questions and take care of things that I didn't even think of! She was there the day of the wedding and made everything look absolutely beautiful! She was able to tie my whole theme together! We couldn't have pulled it off without her! The staff and the food were fabulous as well! Every single person at our wedding had a blast and have raved about how good the food & service was! I will definitely be recommending Rachael and ViVA catering again and again!

    Even though we always want our newly married couple to have the best day possible, we also want that for their guests at the reception and we are so happy to hear that all of your guests had a great time with you! Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure to work with you & Walter as well!

  • We loved having VIVA cater for our wedding. The menu was DELICIOUS! I only wish I had more time to eat! (Didn't realize a bride would be so busy on her wedding day!) I definitely recommend VIVA to cater your next event. We had a mix of brunch and lunch items and they were all the perfect temperatures and delicious.

    Thank you for the review but we've noticed you haven't had your wedding with us yet. The 26th will be nothing short of amazing as I'm sure you've planned every last detail! We look forward to providing amazing service and food for your reception at the Reading Art Works!

  • We booked Viva for our Caterer and Ceremony and Reception Location because of three main things: 1.) they were in a central location for many of our guests and not too far from where my family lives, 2.) they were a great value for what we received, 3.) they were very flexible and easy to work with in planning all the details and especially in the initial email exchange when we were still deciding which venue to book. I think it's safe to say that Sera's quick and helpful responses were what made us choose Viva at the time when we were first exchanging emails to ask more about the venue in general and weighing our options between Viva and a few other places. We felt heard and respected and valued before we were even customers, and that made a huge difference for us. And it wasn't just a come-on, Sera treated us that way the entire time while she was working with us in discussing and planning all the details, She was truly amazing! There was already another wedding planned that Viva w... Read more
