Private Dining Done Right

Whether it is a rehearsal dinner, brunch, small business meeting or celebration, Vivo’s private dining room is the ideal venue.

Our beautifully decorated private dining room sits adjacent to our award-winning Vivo Seasonal Trattoria. Your event will be serviced by our highly trained staff and your guests will be impressed with the selections prepared by our award-winning kitchen.

The Private Dining room can be combined to seat up to 56 guests for a dinner or hold up to 38 for meetings with audio-visual. The room can be divided further to accommodate 15 guests or 10 with audiovisual, for smaller meetings. For more information on how to secure these rooms for your function, as well as menu options and pricing, please call Vivo at (860) 760-2235.

Audio Visual Services

VIVO and the Marriott Hartford Downtown have partnered with PSAV, an audio/visual services company. If your event requires a/v services let us know and we will arrange to have the event space set for your event. For example, if a presenter is bringing in their own LCD projector for a presentation, they will require a screen, extension cords, power cords, and a table. The cost for this projector support package is $110.00. The billing will be contained on your master bill for your event.

If you have more substantial a/v needs will require working with PSAV directly. Simply let us know this and we will provide contact information ensuring special event is executed exactly as needed.

Alcohol/Beverage Service

Beverage service is handled by Vivo associates taking all orders inside the private dining room for cocktails, non-alcoholic drinks, and wine. We recommend pre-selecting wines with dinner to ensure availability and expedited service. All beverage service is charged on consumption.


The attached parking garage is owned by the State of Connecticut and is operated by Laz Parking. Please contact the Laz Parking Garage office at 860-728-2598 to obtain pre-paid parking tickets. Vivo does not validate parking.
