The atmosphere of the brewpub is amazing, Gothic and very pleasing to the eye.
Something that I particularly enjoyed was how kid friendly they were. Not only did they have a kids menu and crayons, but the kids menu wasn't just reprocessed chicken and fries. Juice, fresh fruit or house brewed root beer were options. Even to add to the kid friendly atmosphere the hosts were playing with the brewmasters daughter, who couldn't have been more than two.
The beverage selection was very accommodating as well. If you find yourself not being able to go to breweries with a significant other because they don't drink beer then this menu will solve it. They had 2 types of cider, wine and fresh root beer as options for the non-beer drinker.
I personally had there rotating wood aged selection and at the time it was Belgium dark strong ale aged 4 months in cognac barrels.
The food was chef created and delicious. I had the duck nachos and they were amazing!!!

Atmosphere: made in an old church and is of a very cool belgian style
Quality: some of the best american versions of belgian beers I have had
Service: pretty helpful since the menu has some foreign and exotic items.
Selection: this is probably the only true down fall I can find of this place: they only have 4 or so menu beers that aren't available in cans at a store. but i do love the constantly changing barrel aged beer selection
Food: wonderful food. very unique and extremely tasty
Overall: love this place: one of the more unique brewpubs and damn good too.

Vivant is a great little brewpub. Really enjoyed the church vibe. Our server was extremely knowledgable for a server/waiter. Great brews! Had 6 varieties and really liked 5. Excellent ratio. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Grand Rapids. My only real negative would be with their merch/store. I really wanted a t-shirt but theri pricing seemed a little out of wack.

It's in a retired church. How can you beat that for coolness? And the community tables definitely add to the vibe. The food is excellent and they make a concerted effort to match it with the beer. Vivant has a heavy Belgium focus, so if you like Belgian, it's for you. The atmosphere and experience doesn't get much better.
