Visited for dinner and some beers on a recent trip to Grand Rapids.

This is a truly unique place inside and old church. Really cool atmosphere overall.

Service with both friendly and informative and the owner even stopped by to chat with us when he heard he had some visitors from Toronto.

The beer was definitely above average overall with a good variety of styles to choose from.

The food was the real hit here. The only bad part is that we didn't have any room for the desserts that also looked amazing. Best value for a meal that I have ever had at a beer bar or brewery. Top notch gourmet food for reasonable prices. Definitely a differentiator for Vivant.

Got some beer to go as well.

Great place and a must visit if in Grand Rapids.

Vivant is in an old church and makes belgian inspired beers. It's very unique and delicious beers.

Ultra-cool idea, vibe, space. Quality of beer is nice, not elite, but they make decent craft beers, many seem very true to their styles.

The service was average. Its hard to rate a place on this when you only get the service of one employee. Their beer selection was good. Their food selection was not. The only thing worse than the food menu/selection was the food itself. Over-priced liver pate on a cracker.

Didn't have any food here but stopped for some beers during recent trip to GR area. Layout confusing and hard to get to the bar area to order beers, but place was packed and seemed to have good atmosphere. I really enjoyed was the Wizards Burial Ground which was excellent.
