It's eh – I've gone to Viva three times now. Each time I hope it will live up to its hype. Never does. I personally don't find the food spectacular at all. It is a great place for vegans or vegitarians, but I've had better Mexican elsewhere. They aren'tskimpy on the alcohol in the drinks. The prices are pretty good.

Que Bueno – With a great location in downtown Ithaca, Viva is an obvious choice for locals and people just passing through. The food is tasty and reasonably priced, the margaritas are excellent, and the waiters are always friendly. If there's a wait, just sit down at the bar while you sip sangria and munch on nachos. There's also a carryout side of the restaurant that is quick and cheap.

Horrible – The waitors/waitresses have never gotten a tip from me when I've gone there (twice now), and never will, as I'll never be going back. It's seriously the worst Mexican I've ever had, the people don't know their food, and their staff is horribly rude. Never go there if you value your sanity and/or your perception of Ithaca having generally "good" food.

Its ok – I like viva alot. The sangria is amazing, and the food is healthy, and fresh. The flan is also very good. The only negative thing I can say is that the coffee often tastes burnt, as if they were serving from the same pot all day long.

worst dining experience in 32-years – Our man-ish disgruntles waitress barely made an effort to take our ourder and proceded to tell one of us to get our own drinks from the fridge. Are you kidding me? She threw the plates on the table and managed to upset all 5 members of our dinner party one at a time. She then had the gall to follow us out into the street and yell at us in public because her tip was not big enough. Here is my tip for her. Get out of the service industry! Please don't eat there.

East Coast Mexican – For those of you from the west coast, this is clearly no comparison. But if you're looking for more than taco bell to satisfy your mexican craving, the place is ok. Lots of high school kids, quick service, a bit pricey for a taqueria.
