About Vivian

Is Vivian dog friendly?

Yes, Vivian is dog friendly and makes our curated list of the best pet friendly restaurants in Asheville. With a chef who’s been sniffed out by the James Beard nominations, a wine list that’s pawsitively delightful, and ample seating for both two and four-legged patrons, Vivian stands out as a favorite dining spot in Asheville. The patio’s a real treat, offering multiple covered and uncovered tables with a barrier to shield from street traffic – perfect for a relaxed meal with your furry friend. No matter rain or shine, with covered seating, fans, heaters, and umbrellas, you and your pet can comfortably enjoy a meal that’s nothing short of a feast for the senses. In addition to the great food, wine and seating, the service and southern hospitality win Vivian a four-paws-up rating from Jet Set Pets.

Food Situation:

Eclectic American with a hint of Southern and a hint of French. Some great dishes to try: Smoked Oysters, Deviled Eggs, Shrimp en Pastis, Vivian’s Steak Dinner, Trout and

Drink Situation:

A standout wine list with a leaning towards small producers and natural winemaking methods. Don’t miss the half-off bottle night! Vivian also offers a full bar, specialty cocktails and a small but solid craft beer list.

Location and Other Tips:

Vivian is located in the River Arts District just a short ride from most of our favorite pet friendly hotels in Asheville and close to many of the district’s numerous art galleries.
