We love Via Réal! It is one of our favorite stops in DFW. Their food is excellent, as is their service. They also have the best drinks, especially their margaritas!

The food quality and service in this restaurant is top notch. It was jam packed for a Tuesday night, apparently with a lot of business folks, so the noise level was a bit higher than expected, but not too distracting.

We were celebrating or 52nd wedding anniversary, and were treated like royalty. Paul was our server, and he took pains to ensure every detail was perfect. The food was delicious, and the executive chef came by and wished us a happy anniversary. And of course Fran stopped by a couple of times. It was a memorable evening.

I moved out of Via Real's neighborhood almost 20 years ago. It was MY place - whether I was having a good day or a bad one - I hated to leave it behind. My husband had never been, so booked it for our anniversary before a concert at Toyota Music Factory. I've been to Via Real many times over the years, and it honestly keeps getting better and better.

First time to be here. It was recommended by a friend. The service was great (Eddie). He was knowledgeable about the dishes and helpful with drink selections. I had the Copper River Salmon - it was delicious! My friends enjoyed their choices.
It’s a mix of people dressed casually and others dress a little more. Less casual seems appropriate to me. Really good food and great service. Lots of choices on the menu for those who do not want traditional tex-mex

Our experience here was PHENOMENAL! We celebrated our anniversary and we certainly made the right choice in picking Via Real. We were treated exceptionally by everyone ,especially our waiter Eddie and the GM Jimmy. They made sure we were well taken care of and made it a night to remember! They went above and beyond. Eddie was so kind and even took time to take pictures of us. We were also surprised to receive a beautiful printed photo of us from them! It was a great anniversary gift! The food was also delicious and Eddie was fantastic at recommending dishes! You will not be disappointed by choosing Via Real, they made us feel truly welcome and gave us 5 star service!

We were staying at the Four Seasons for our anniversary when Via Real was recommended to us. Boy are we glad we went! The food was fantastic but the service of every single person at this restaurant gets 5 stars. The owner Fran is such a delightful woman and has clearly spent the right amount of time and energy in creating this fantastic atmosphere and world class service.

Impeccable service!! Type of service like you were at a 5 star fine dining establishment with southern hospitality! GM and owner walked around and chatted with every guest at each table. Thanked you for coming and genuinely wanted to know how your dinner was. Food was wonderful with Southwest flair. Cant wait to try the brunch service!!

Business luncheon with out of town clients. Reservation was honored promptly, waitstaff was highly considerate of the meeting nature of the luncheon. Service was excellent, timely and helpful. The luncheon specials were awesome and a huge success with the clients. Awesome place for lunch and outstanding menu for both lunch and dinner.

My friend and I had a wonderful meal with great service. We talked for hours after our lunch, and were the last ones there, and I was distracted, so I forgot to tip the kind valet who brought the key to our table.

Can I somehow still tip him generously without driving to the restaurant? Let me know ... our lunch was yesterday. Thanks!

Service is excellent from the moment you enter the parking lot: valet parking, warm greeting when you walk in, and cozy dining area. The server was very helpful when I was looking for an entree to veganize and it was delicious! They have something for everyone (steak, seafood, veggie) and overall it was a great dining experience. Oh and the guacamole is amazingly fresh and tasty!
