Diner Reviews
  • "We went to Via Lago Restaurant for a Work Dinner, everyone was expecting to go and have Dinner in here, but we were not so happy with the prices, and the food, the service was good but the rest, we definitely agree not to come back. Maybe we were expecting to much before going we check the prices, I though it will be a great food, but not really, taste was okay nothing unusual, wines were very high in price, we reserve via Open table, but reservation did not was even in their list, there were not too many people and we were sit after 15 min of waiting"

  • "I've been to this place numerous times during lunch. This evening, the service was very poor, understaffed. The hostess was aloof. We waited along time for staff to take, then bring drinks. Two tables sat after us recd their bread before us. The table next to us had to hail down a staff member to ask when their order would be taken after sitting along time. Waiter took our bread and bread plates away before we received our main course. In summary, they need to hire more staff and train them on customer service and awareness. The food was wonderful."

  • "Sea bass was one of the best I've ever had. The pasta is definitely al dente(to be expected tho). Ambiance is eclectic with a small winery inside for viewing and decorations that required such attention to detail and imagination. Recommend for families and date nights out as well!"

  • "Service was something that I would get at a Denny's or IHOP, salads came out before the appetizer. Martinis where room temp. Several times had to ask for water. Service was very slow."

  • "i don't know if it was because of restaurant week they didn't put out there best because it was so cheap, but the food was not the greatest. it wasn't bad however i've had and expected much better. we had reservations (yes i know restaurant week is busy) , but there were two open tables that could be seen at the waiting area. we were waiting for 12minutes only to be seated at one of the same seats we were looking at.there was only one couple ahead of us. The food was "okay" at best, but what got me was there pork ossobuco, one of their signature dish, disappointing. The meat although tender, was not well seasoned and bland there, the sauce did not make up for it. i expect more for a "fine dining" restaurant. and better service."

  • "My family and I dined here for my Mother's birthday dinner. Our waiter and the owner were both very kind, friendly, helpful, and personable. Although we were a party of 6, we never had to ask for anything. Our waiter anticipated our needs and made sure all we had to do was ENJOY ourselves! The owner made several rounds throughout the restaurant, which was lively and energetic at the time, ensuring all of the patrons were having a great dining experience. Our waiter knew the menu very well and was able to give us detailed suggestions, as this was our first time. There was a very talented pianist/singer there to entertain us, which added to the festivities. My family and I will DEFINITELY be back. We LOVED our time at Via Lago Trattoria!"
