The restaurant has a simple but elegant look, a high profile menu with select dishes, but the service was really bad. The server didn't check on us often enough (we were in separate room, so we couldn't call her) though the restaurant was almost empty, she didn't take away empty glasses, wasn't nice enough, etc. I didn't really like the...

Each time when we return to Cluj we visit few restaurants on our list. Last evening , was Via. This time i was not impressed at all by the service, i was dissapointed! The food is good ( but same menu as in summer) but the service was horrible. Unfortunatly they shoukd pay more attention to all details.

Restaurant was difficult to find, but it is ok. Food was great, steak was very good and the dessert too. I would definitely go there again. Costs are little bit high but not too high. Service was little slow, although there weren't so much other people eating.

Even if the prices look a bit expensive at first glance, after you taste the food, you'll admit Via offers a very good value for money food that will caress your senses.

After hearing quite a few good things about Via restaurant, we decided to try it on a Saturday. It is divided in two sections, ground level, for non smoking, was empty. Lower level, smoking section, had two tables, both with one customers. So , not busy at all for a late Saturday afternoon. Service: the biggest disappointment of all was... More

Due to the praises I have read on tripadvisor and in specialty newspaper articles, we decided to have a dinner at Via. Given its reputation, I expected nothing but perfection. At the end of the evening the conclusion was the following: quiet location, plain decor, ordinary food (the dessert was more sour than sweet!), ordinary service (the impassive face of... More
