Restaurant description

VIVI restaurant at Centre Point is an all-day British brasserie serving delicious dishes that evoke a sense of nostalgia. From the menu to the décor, the restaurant pays homage to the swinging sixties and its location on the edge of Soho.

Showcasing the best of British, the VIVI menu is packed with bold, seasonal flavours. Serving everything from traditional English breakfasts to light lunches, afternoon teas and indulgent dinners, retro classics are reinvented, with highlights including cauliflower cheese croquettes with Lea & Perrins, chicken Kiev with fries, and the VIVI seasonal arctic roll.

The interiors at VIVI London reflect its location and retro menu, with nods to the swinging sixties throughout. Vibrant art and 1960s-style chandeliers are joined by ornate furniture and the building’s original tiling, all framed by floor-to-ceiling windows.

Found in the iconic Centre Point, VIVI is a 1-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road Tube Station.

VIVI offers a unique setting for spectacular events and group dining. VIVI is available for a variety of occasion types, guest number and budgets. For groups and events, please contact the restaurant directly.

    This is a great addition to London's dining culture. Swanky but friendly, a treat but relaxed. The managing director has got this just right for Rhubarb. I've been twice and even in the week between it's improved, showing that they're listening and learning. The cocktails were amazing, and not served by some cold show-off, thankfully. The food was impeccable on my last visit, the souffle satisfying and sumptuous, the venison pudding hearty but fresh tasting. Everything is treated with care, but it's not prissy, it's unpretentious good food. As a former wine buyer, they've got some good options there too, with the white and red Rhones doing it for me last time and lots of interesting options. I'd love a couple of value Portuguese on there too, but that's subjective. Lovely staff last time too, just nice chatty folks but not intrusive.

    A great space, easily found from Tottenham Court Road tube station (a few minutes walk), a friendly welcome and great views from the restaurant. We chose the two course meal with the glass of prosecco - there was a selection of three starters (I could have chosen each one) and the main course menu also had a selection of three options. No room for a desert! The restaurant has a good atmosphere and music vibe, friendly staff, good food - recommended!

    Lovely space, nice ambience, friendly & courteous bar, and restaurant customer service. Good drinks menu - reasonable prices for central London. However, food mediocre at best, not memorable and would not return for dining.

    I love how centrally located the restaurant is, however, more needs to be done on street level about signposting where it is. The entrance is tucked away and we did get a little confused trying to find it. Inside, we were greeted by a friendly face who took our belongings and guided us to the lift. The decor is wonderful, it's a shame that the atmosphere wasn't as 'fizzy' as I had hoped. I expected live music or perhaps some music from the era that the restaurant decor takes it's inspiration from; I wanted to feel as though I were in Mad Men! It was a shame that we had to signal for attention on a few occasions (while seated on a tall table by the bar). It wasn't that busy, so I would have preferred slightly more attentive staff. While everyone was friendly, some did have trouble understanding what we were asking for on occasion. The food was delicious, hot and served promptly - which was great. The table service was good, however, I did have to pour wine for myself and fellow diners on a few occasions; I'm not adverse to doing this of course, but where we were topped up at some intervals and then not others...consistency is key.

    Enjoyed our experience at this new restaurant. Staff were attentive and friendly. Food excellent though for the pate starter there should be more bread. I had the sherry trifle, just the right size and very pretty. The Rum Baba was excellent. The presentation of the food was lovely as is the decor and colour scheme of the restaurant. We ate early at 6.30pm so the restaurant was not very full but there was still a nice atmosphere. The toilet lighting is a bit dark.
