Business Lunch, Food and serviceBusiness Lunch, Food and service were both very good. A little noisy, but still able to do business.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMnice brunchWent for Mother's Day & was seated promptly, drinks offered (mimosas were included) upon being seated. Good omelet station w/ egg white option for healthier choice. Nice selection of breakfast & lunch options. Good dessert table -chocolate fountain & fruit were a nice idea!( but I would've liked to see marshmellows, angel food cake, pretzels & potato chips with the chocolate fountain :) Not a bad price for Mother's Day compared to other places in Dallas although, it's always hard for me to pay buffet prices bc I don't eat much. Would definitely go again if wanting a brunch buffet. Would recommend to friends.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe entire experience wasThe entire experience was outstanding.

After trying the hotel information and the yellow pages, I got my trusty app for Open Table. We found Via Real and saw their menu and location and knew this was going to work for us. We made a reservation and followed the directions and had a great dinner. We both choose from their Mexican Menu. The food was great and the Margaritas were prefect. Would definitely go again if we head back to Dallas.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for Easter BrunchWent there for Easter Brunch and at no time was there a lack of filed food trays, service or friendliness! I will definitely return for other occassions.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonder withEverything was wonder with a few minor exceptions. The chicken was a little dry and most of the hot food was cold, especially the eggs "benedict." I know that is hard to fix at a buffet, maybe even impossible, so I went back and rated the food outstanding.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my family for EasterTook my family for Easter brunch and they had a great time. Service was excellent. Waiter kept my mimosa glass filled and never had to ask for a cleared space.

Great food at very reasonable price.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointedThe best dish on the menu is the grouper with salsa. We had the pork tenderloin fajitas and the pork was cooked way too long. The reason it is called pork tenderloin is because it is the best cut of pork. It had been left on the grill way too long and was tough.
Of course, the service is always great, but we won't order that dish again.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI will be back for sure!Went for a business dinner and arrived early but they seated us right away. The food and service were great. This is on my list for future visits!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt has been a while sinceIt has been a while since we have been there, and now i wonder why. The service was beyond expectations. Our waiter was just the right amount of attentive and his recommendations were right on. Food, well, let me say there was not a speck left on any of our plates. It was so good I wish I had ordered an appetizer in stead of saving my self for dessert (which was well worth the calories).3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Our Favorite Date NightsFor several years now, one of our favorite Date Nights. Thank You!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service!!I join some friends in Irving for an annual conference, and we always make it a point to dine at Via Real. The owner there always comes by our table to welcome us, and make us feel like old friends. In fact, when she learned that one member of our party was in from overseas, she even sent over a complimentary appetizer plate as a "welcome to Texas" gesture! The food is delicious, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere warm and inviting. Wish I didn't live so far away - if it was closer, I'd dine at this place all the time!3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent and we areAlways excellent and we are so happy to have such a gem in Las Colinas!2/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
