Via Real is an exceptional and unusual Mexican Restaurant. This is not a typical Mexican restaurant. They have a creative Chef who creates 5 star dishes. I took out of town family there and they were thrilled with the food and service. The manager checked on us quite frequently and made us feel warm and welcome.

This place is top notch. It’s one of the best Mexcan restaurants I’ve been to, including those in Mexico. Upscale & authentic. Service is always excellent.

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.

This is a beautiful upscale restaurant with prices that are moderate. Food is always wonderful. Have never been disappointed and always send co-workers there for business meetings that need to impress

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.

First time having brunch there...Edie, our server, was awesome and kept the dirty dishes off the table and the mimosa glasses full. What more could you ask for?

Via Real has been a favorite of ours for decades.. the beauty is it’s just as awesome and relevant now as ever! Hands down the BEST filet around. YES Better than all the Dallas steak house favorites. I’ve had them all...

After 10 years, and MANY restaurants, they still have the best Mexican food in the metroplex. I drive over 45 minutes just to eat here.

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% !
