Was really disappointed with the food - very bland and tasteless. The potato and leek soup was not even edible. The nacho were better but still nothing spectacular. The staff were really friendly.

Meat eaters too will love this incredible restaurant. Celiac safe dedicated GF, accommodates other allergies too. Nachos are a meal by itself. Thai Peanut Stir Fry is phenomenal, SW Black Bean Burger incredible. Generous portions, fresh, delicious. Friendly staff. Save room for Snicker Doodle and Choc Chip Cookies! Will be back in a heartbeat. UPDATE 09.2019: portions were much less than our first 2 visits 06.2019. Hope it's a one-off and not the norm.

popped in here to pick up a few desserts and was so impressed with the selection!! The cupcake and chocolate chip cookie I got were AMAZING. Seriously some of the best GF desserts I've ever had. I look forward to coming back for lunch!

Yes, it is so fun to be able to order anything off the menu. But we were really disappointed with the food. Nothing tasted good. Had a jackfruit sandwich which was mediocre and the Italian pizza which was downright gross. Also, really bad service. Sad because I was sooo excited to try it!

Omg it’s mandatory to get the nachos. Love not having to worry when entire menu gluten free! 💛💛

The Grinkle GF pizza is the best pizza I’ve had in 9 years! My two celiac daughters agreed. The whole Resteraunt is GF and vegan. My non celiac son loved the crab dip pizza and my husband loved the Father’s Day BQ ribs special. The both are very picky.

This place was delightful. Between my non-gf husband and me, we ate the tamari ginger cauliflower wings, jackfruit brisket pizza, broccoli mac and “cheese”, beer, kombucha, carrot cake and chocolate mousse torte. Everything they make is vegan and gf. Even non vegans like us had a super meal and experience.

Great food (cauliflower wings with ginger tamari, peanut sauce stir fry, german chocolate cake) with so many options it was hard to choose. Highly recommend especially for celiacs. A real treat and great find.

Entire facility is GF, so eating there is a breeze. All food is good and some is really great! Cauliflower wings, soup, and special subs were favorites! Celiac safe!

I have eaten at Viva Tacoma twice and would eat there again anytime I happen to be in the city. As a celiac who also chooses to be a vegetarian, I appreciate the amount of options. Although the wait time can be a bit long, the food is well worth the wait. I personally recommend any dish that has the delicious "walnut meat" and the cheesecakes for dessert. The staff is also really friendly and accommodating. I currently have to follow a GERD-friendly diet on top of my other dietary restrictions, which means I would not have been able to have any of the non-dessert meals. However, the waitress allowed me to completely customize a pizza to my needs, which I am extremely grateful for. I recommend!

No more tacos cuz they can’t get the blue Mesa. Hot cocoa with coconut milk is rich but has a clean finish. Nachos were absolutely amazing!!! The wings had an almost teriyaki like sauce on them with really good dipping sauce. Pumpkin muffins for desert was a great finish. Excited to come back for more... real soon!

Two friends and I went here a few days ago and shared two dishes among the three of us: the portobello mushroom tacos and a spicy bean burger (I'm sure I don't have the correct names). Everything was delicious! I particularly liked the blue corn masa tortillas used for the tacos. Excellent! It's wonderful to be able to eat somewhere you feel safe to eat (gluten-free).

Amazing food with an amazing staff! Everything we tried was delicious! The hot chocolate was to die for- super chocolatey! I am very sensitive celiac and did not have any trouble eating here. The owner came up and talked with us- there is no cross contamination because every single item is gluten free. Definitely give this place a try, you won't regret it!

Fabulous and excellent tasty food. They had options for me, even with multiple allergies. Went there my first time the other night with husband & friend and everyone enjoyed their meal! We each ate something different. I had Thai peanut meal, my husband had raw enchiladas and it was the first time in a long time we've been able to share a meal at a nice restaurant. Thank you Viva, planning to be back soon!

This is a spoiler alert. This restaurant is vegan - so of course no diary or meat. We didn't eat there because we like our diary & meat - so we can't rate their food. It might be as goof as the two prior alerts state.

Only been here once, but loved it. Can't wait to go back. I had the enchiladas and my toddler had the broccoli Mac & cheese and both were so good!!

Such great Mac and cheese! It's really great to finally have a dedicated gf place in north Tacoma.

Excellent find for a local GF restaurant! Mac & cheese is suberb, best GF mac! Very nice eclectic restaurant with great atmosphere, never rushed and great service!! :) It's around back of Starbucks of the NW corner of 26th and Proctor (facing the west).

Viva is an incredible place! Incredible food, and great service in a nice small space. It's a focused completely organic, vegan, and totally gluten free restaurant. Again a dedicated Gluten free kitchen. It's not even on premise. EVER. Best restaurant in all of the south sound for those with Celiac that i know of. So happy to have found this place!
