the tapas are amazing and the selection is endless. The house sangria is the best and you can even buy a bottle to take home. Great place to hang out

I love coming here for some tapas and their white sangria. The stuffed mushrooms are so good and their creme brulee is perfect.

In town visiting, we had not been to Viva Madrid in a year. It was much better than we remembered! The garlic beef, stuffed mushrooms, lamb chops, clams, mussels and potatoes were delicious and well complemented by the rioja! It was absolutely fantastic! The server Phil was incredible! He was serving so many tables, but still made are dining experience... More

I love this place. The Tapas are great and they have a wide variety. Their sangria is a little bit too sweet. The decor is cute and they have plenty of space in to wait in the hallway but the space inside is so small. You feel like you are practically sitting on top of the table next to you.

The decor is great. Set backs parking, no reservations, the whole group needs to be on time to be seated, first comed first seated. Location is very small. Food and service fair.

I love this place! My only beef it that it gets really hard to have a conversation when there is over 5 people in the restaurant (in other words, it's ALWAYS loud and hard to converse). I've been coming hear for a long time because it's amazing but I wish they'd at least try to do something about the noise... More

The tapas are excellent, the service is great and the atmosphere is unbelievable. When we have friends visiting from out of the area we take them to Viva Madrid or the Back Abbey. Can be pretty crowded, loud and you might have to wait, but trust me, it's worth the wait!
