    We have been eating at Via Real for 20 years, Fran has never disappointed us in the food that her wonderful staff prepares, the wait staff is always attentive. Someone from management or Fran herself is always making sure that all is well. Sunday brunch is no different. Our brunch was very good, if anything could change it would be the food was just lukewarm. We will return. Jerry H.

    Gets rave reviews so maybe an off night plus we were there late so probably the last table they had. Margs were not fresh pressed and we inquired before ordering. All ice & average at best. Meals were ok & one was good. Salsa fantastic. Chicken cilantro was delicious and I was excited after a day of travel to have a bunch of fresh vegetables but they were laden in jar garlic. Couldn’t eat them. Waiter was great.

    Via ReálResponded 3 days agoI am so sorry to hear that you experience with us with so disappointing. We really do appreciate the feedback and hope that you give us another try when you are back in the area.

    We love coming for brunch but dinner was a bit disappointing. Obvious difference in brunch vs. dinner food quality. Dinner- guacamole tasted as though it was prepped with store bought powder mix, queso dip tasted as if from a can and fajita steak tasted as if it had been boiled. Will return for brunch but not for dinner.

    Via ReálResponded 3 days agoWow! Thank you so much for the feedback! This is a first for us. We have never had anyone say that the brunch quality of food is better than dinner. We appreciate your opinion and for letting us know. We look forward to having you back in for brunch!

    The hostess gave us a choice of romantic seatings , by the indoor waterfall or by the fireplace. We chose the latter. The food was freshly made , appropriately priced without getting a loan from the U.S. Treasury. My bride enjoyed for her birthday. well worth the visit. Customer service is beyond approach.

    Absolutely loved this place! My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary here and I have never had such wonderful customer service from anywhere. I had the beef fajitas and they were absolutely delicious best I’ve ever had hands down. The waiter, Sam, I believe was his name, was so nice and knowledgeable. He had great recommendations and really knew his stuff. Beautiful setting. They gave us a free dessert for our anniversary and even took our picture and printed it out for us. The manager Jimmie even came to talk with us and made sure we were good and even had our food boxed up to go. This place deserves all the stars. We will 100% be going back!

    Birthday lunch for a friend. The waiter was nice but made too much small talk and seemed to have a hard time bringing a dessert menu. We received the bday dessert but my friend wanted something else. She doesn’t like Flan. I had to ask him 3 times to bring us a menu. He finally brought a dessert platter for her to choose. I’m not sure why the dessert was so hard to get.

    The brunch exceeded expectation, lots of options and everything tasted great. Only issue was with our server. He seemed to be distracted and we had to keep requesting him back to our table and ask other servers for assistance.

I am glad you enjoyed the brunch and I do hope you will join us again. I have made a note not to sit you with that same server so hopefully you can have a great experience all around!
