Via Real Ratings and Reviews
This restaurant never disappoints in its menu offerings.
However, on this particular visit, I was a little disappointed in the service. We had to wait longer than usual for our main courses to arrive, but since we were enjoying conversation and family time, the slower-than-usual service didn't dampen our experience. I didn't complain at the time about the service, but it was noticeable to those in our party. We had an early dinner reservation, so I can only imagine that the slow service may have had to do with the onset of early diners who had later plans for an entertainment event close by, and therefore may have contributed to the sluggish service.
I've dined at this restuarant since its beginning days in 1985, and highly recommend it for its delicious Southwestern cuisine. One can order Tex-Mex, but the other selections are worth skipping the standard Tex-Mex options.
Anyone who is happens to be in the Las Colinas area would find the dining experience at Via Realwell well worth the visit.
Food is always very good. Poor service yesterday -- removed the chips and guac before the table was through dining. We were a late lunch group and we had the impression he was rushing us so he could leave for the day. Disappointing-services is normally excellent and NOT rushed.
For the past 9 years, Via Real has been our "Go-To" spot for birthdays, anniversaries, special occasions, and friends in town. The atmosphere, food, staff and service is exceptional. For the service you get here, the prices are reasonable. We have never had a meal here that we did not enjoy 100% !
As always I had a great time at Via Real. This was my third time there, my dates favorited restaurant. We came to just have a nice quiet date. The food as always was great. I had the pan seared bass and it was delicious. The service was great, waiter and staff was very attentive and took care of us. Until the next time!!
The food and the service were outstanding! Sophisticated restaurant menu for a Mexican food restaurant. My wife had the seasonal Shrimp Relleno which was delicious. I had the Ranchers Choice Platter that was equally if not more delicious. Would definitely eat here again.
A friend was in town that I hadn’t seen in 37 years! I had heard great things about this restaurant and it did not disappoint! I was on a special diet and they were accommodating. They were also glad to call a cab for my friend who was staying in Dallas. Awesome place and oh, the owner was fabulous! Loved her!
I am ALWAYS impressed when I eat at this restaurant!! This time I had the flaming steak and I didn't want to get to much steak so I got the one 8oz. Ooooh how I wish I got the 10 oz. When you hear the steak melts in your mouth, it's just a passing conversation until you taste their steak.
I took my neighbor and he was going bizerk as he ordered the steak as well. The owner happened to be on site and she was just as nice as the staff. She check on us two or three times!! I recommend this restaurant to anyone!!
I have been dining at Via Realtor over 25years and each tim it is improved in small and often large ways so it is always such a pleasure.Such a perfect restaurant on all levels..hospitable personable great service fabulous food choice and the specials are outstanding each time.If you have not been to this beautiful restaurant I more than urge you to go and for parties..they pull out all of the stops to make it the perfect party.
We have been long time customers of Via Real, over 15 years, but tonight’s experience was very disappointing. Unfortunately, I had a hair in my food, I gave it back to waiter and after a while the manager brought out the new plate. Not a “I’m sorry” or anything. Not a big deal ate my meal after my family was finished and we got our check. They charged us for the new meal ? Once we got the waiter over we explained to him that they double charged us and he took the check and returned with new check. They took off the extra order but did not compensate or again apologize for the hair or the delay. For such a nice restaurant the way we were treated was terrible. Very disappointing!
Booked this through "Open Table".
Awesome ambiance inside.
Scored a table by the fireplace.
Greeted VERY warmly by the hostess and seated. Started out with a nice margarita after our waiter expertly described the menu and specials. The staff at this restaurant is noteworthy. We had no less than three waiters attending to our needs. Extremely friendly/chatty, professional and quick! They worked as a team. Made our dining experience that more enjoyable.
Food choices were varied as they had TexMex and southwestern style items that were uniquely prepared. Not your standard TexMex fare. Food came out piping hot and delicious. Salsa and drinks replenished promptly and spent dished whisked away pronto.
Save room for dessert!
Yah, we'll definitely be back!
