Been going to Via Real for quite a number of years for lunch, brunch, dinner and even a birthday party. Never been disappointed. Nice environment for out of town guests. Excellent food and great service.

A group of us went recently for brunch and it was wonderful! A great variety of breakfast and lunch foods, salads and desserts. The grilled vegetable salad and spicy Ceasar could have been my entire meal. But then I found the flan and lemon bars. And the unlimited mimosas weren't bad either!! Staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. Can't wait... More

This was a last minute decision to attend. Wow... great restaurant. Really enjoyed the sea bass. Wish the portions were a bit heartier. No problem there with the steaks. Also, when they say large Margherita, they mean LARGE.

I booked Via Real based on TA reviews. We had friends in town who were staying in the Las Colinas area and we weren't very familiar with restaurants in that area of town. The reviews were on target and we were not disappointed. The ambiance of the restaurant was nice and more upscale than the typical Tex-Mex. it is billed... More

Every time I go to Dallas, I go to Via Real -- sometimes, two nights in a row. It's that good. On my last visit, I had beef tenderloin, and it was outstanding. The seafood is delicious, too. As an appetizer, the pork belly is my favorite and a must-have. The restaurant is beautifully appointed, and the service is the... More
