Vivace at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, CA exceeded our expectations in every respect. We made a reservation for dinner and were seated at a premium table next to the fireplace. The hostess was warm, welcoming, and attentive. She immediately asked if we had any allergies to any type of food. The entire staff of waiters was superior, professional, and fluent in describing every meal on the menu. Alcoholic drinks from the bar are truly exceptional and top shelf. The signature dish is the lobster risotto and it is far superior to any other similarly prepared dish we have eaten. The menu contains many high end Italian recipes, pastas, fish and shellfish, amazing steaks, chicken, soups, salads, and everything is prepared tonexacting perfection. The wine list is superior. Although we did not partake of dessert, the dessert menu was exceptionally impressive. A relaxing dining experience in stunning ambiance and all needs are anticipated by a great staff. Vivace has my highest recommendation.
