Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were lucky to have a sunny day in Oct, being able to sit on the terrace overlooking the river. Food was overwhelmingly abundant (all girls in this party) and looked extremely beautiful in presentation. Besides the 3-course market menu, there were little snacks served...upon arrival, amuse bouche before the first course, and extra sweets/cakes at dessert time. Definitely recommend stopping here for lunch for both its value and atmosphere. As for the market menu, everyone in my party loved the first course of a perfect egg 64 degrees; it was so yummy. For the main course of beef (paleron), one person felt it was overcooked and didn't even finish while the others enjoyed it but not wow'ed by it. Maybe we are just not used to the way the beef was cooked. Dessert however was excellent.More

Always love lunch at Le Vivier. The staff are truly excellent - kind, knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. We had some tricky dietary requirements in our party but all was managed wonderfully and all the food was spectacular to the eyes and palate....The setting on the river is of course also fabulous - trés reposant.

We have been going to Le Vivier on and off for around 20 years - it’s an institution in the area and the fact they were almost full on a Wednesday lunchtime shows they must be doing something right Since the last time we had...been there I think they had acquired a Michelin star, so expectations were high and generally it didn’t disappoint. We went for the €48 fixed menu du jour with an additional cheese course and the effort they had put into even a “basic” menu was obvious and showed a creative and imaginative blend of flavours. We were very impressed with the service; we liked the clear way the menu was set out, particularly the list of wines by the glass and we thought the herb infusion delivered with our cheese course was different and imaginative. A couple of negatives - the rather doughy cumin roll delivered with the amuse-bouches didn’t really work and the noisette and chocolate pudding was a bit sickly. Overall, though, an excellent experienceMore
