Chose this restaurant for our night out and WOW! We had reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. Our waitress was prompt to take our drink orders and those were delicious! The margaritas were memorable!! We had appetizers that were ordered and delivered to our table quickly! Delicious guacamole and queso! We chose the tamale/enchilada, filet and shrimp, filet and scallops and the seafood enchilada. Everything was good! Desserts were caramel cheesecake, bread pudding, creme brûlée..Delicious! We will be coming back! The brunch looks to be our next visit. Would recommend! Service and food is outstanding....
Excellent meal! Had the seafood special. Delicious. Service was attentive but not pushy. Perfect. Enjoyed the evening.
Took good friends to celebrate birthdays before a show.... service and food were excellent. My friend said the salmon was perhaps the best she'd had. Server saw to it we had a great experience n were on our way with time to spare...
I have happily dined at Via Real many times. For the first time I was very disappointed. The food and service were both underwhelming. It was an extremely busy night but I have been there when it was equally busy and had a wonderful experience. Hopefully it was a one time "glitch"
Excellent service and food! We had the steak which came to the table flaming and Chilean Sea Bass both were amazing. The pineapple sauce on the Bass was perfect.
We were from out of town. Found VR on OT and it exceeded our expectations. The service was impressive the waiter Eddie was amazing. The guacamole was fresh and I have never had better thinner tortilla chips and the salad was perfection. The fajitas were excellent as were the beans on the side. Overall just what we wanted. If I am ever in Dallas again will be back and recommend to all friends.
Great place that our family has celebrate special occasions at for the last 30 years.
The Sunday brunch never fails to be less than spectacular
Was there for Sunday Brunch Buffet with a friend. Reservations honored and seated immediately in the private dining room area. There was a large family with children of various ages (about 20 people total) also seated in the room, which made it a bit noisy.
Servers were polite and attentive. The buffet was good - standard brunch items with a few Latin inspired entrees. Enjoyed the made-to-order omelettes. No carving station, but a variety of hot/cold items. All food was setup nicely and frequently refilled. A good value at $25/ person including unlimited mimosas.
The chips were thin and light as air and the salsa had a lovely depth of flavor YUM!
My tenderloin was prepared perfectly medium rare and the grilled vegetables were amazing.
Delicious margaritas as well.
It was very unimpressive. Food mediocre. If you don’t have good salsa in Texas at a Mexican restaurant than not sure how you can compete. Fish was smelly. Ceviche was awful. Simply below mediocre food.
This was our first time at Via Real but it won't be our last. The food and service were both excellent. We were celebrating my wife's birthday. The waitress was very attentive and even gave us a print photo of our group.
LOVE this place! We go for brunch but since moving closer to downtown, haven’t made it back as frequently. They still treat us like family. We took our time with Easter brunch and the staff was nothing but attentive and friendly. Menu options for brunch are always fabulous and the sashimi today was top notch! Thank you again for a great experience and more great family memories!
Our go to place for date night and any special occasion for over 25 years. The food is always excellent and consistent as is the ambiance and service. Our favorite waiter, Diego, has since retired but Rocque took good care of us this weekend. The gracious owner is often on site too.
Food and wine was great. Edie was fantastic! Great to be back at Via Real again.
Food is always excellent! Staff is friendly, yet professional.
The food and customer service is always top notch.
I always enjoy Via Real for an upscale Mexican option. Unfortunately, the location is not extremely convenient for me, but always worth the drive.
Excellent service, great ambiance, delicious cuisine, food is creatively presented, staff is personable and attentive and always a wonderful, top notch experience!!!
Love Via Real . . . Fresh, delicious food that never disappoints! If you're looking for upscale Mexican food, this is the place to come. Service and ambiance is as good as the food.
We had a gift card from open table. We decided to go to one of our favorites, Via Real! As always, food, service, ambience was perfect Thank you Fran, the owner and Eddie, our waiter!
Johnny, our server, was great: witty, funny, knowledgeable. It made for a great experience.
Slow dinner service
We are never disappointed when we go to Via Real.
Great staff from the Valet, to the Host/Hostess stand, to the wait staff.
I love this place. Great food and service ALWAYS!!!
My wife and I have been dining at the Via Real in Las Colinas since it was founded. That equates to many years of fine dining and great service by the wonderful staff of the restaurant. The owner, Fran, is a very gracious and charming host. The food is always magnificently delicious. This place is wonderful for special occasion dining as well as a superb Sunday Brunch destination. We love to order the Surf and Turf which is generous portions of Filet Mignon and Chilean Sea Bass . The choice of wines and margaritas is abundant. Via Real rules...!!
We had a lovely dinner, once again, at Via Real. The food is upscale Mexico City/TexMex but with a wonderful balance of seafood and vegetable dishes. We also had a carafe of the white sangria, which was a hit. I wasn't fully enamored with the Chilean Sea Bass special (I thought it tasted a bit fishy) but everything else was a big hit at our table of 4. The Hostess, wait staff and maître d' were very friendly and wonderfully professional. Always a favorite with us.
Anazing service, food and atmosphere every time!
A real neighborhood gem!!!
We had an wonderful lunch in celebration of a friend’s birthday. The service was exceptional and food was outstanding as always!
They know how to help you celebrate whatever the occasion an do it well.Great consistently great restaurant and has been for the 25+ years I have been dining there.excelent menu and specials..always an enjoyable experience.
Fantastic food, ordered the steak with the “off the menu” fired service (which literally means the steak is set on fire while being brought out to you table side). Eddie was a great server will be back next time in town!
Great evening! Gabriel was our server and he was just awesome! Be sure to ask for him if you go.
Wonderful food and excellent wine. Super place to take clients or a special person
We were served an appetizer we did not order n waiter said compliments of chef. We were charged for it. Food was cold
They always have a fantastic Sunday brunch. The staff provides wonderful and friendly service.
Great variety of food. Food tasted great, especially the waffles. Definitely a must try for any who likes brunch.
Was great as usual. We usually eta there once a week.
Love the owner.
Food was not as usual!!! Shrimp were very chewy and tough......couldn’t eat them!
We have come here for the last two years for our anniversary. Via Real always does something special and takes our picture. Each worker greets you with your special occasion. This is also a very pretty restaurant so great ambiance and great food and drinks
It was very nice.
