Went to Via45 as a party of four. This had been our 4th visit, the food is always very good. Ill keep it short, this is what happened: the waitress (who was lovely) said that if we wanted the pork chop special to let her know asap because there were 2 left. My husband and a friend ordered the pork... More

Unless you are a lover of chicken, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. The bread is nothing special and the olive oil was a cheap flavorless substance. We were a large group that dined early on a Saturday evening. The service was spotty. The appetizers came out one or two at a time over a period of 20 minutes so that... More

This was my 2nd time at Via 45 and the food was just as good as the initial visit that drew my wife & I back. My problem was with the reservation and the subsequent request to vacate the table. We had friends for a visit and the reservation was made weeks in advance, confirmed ahead. Upon arrival for our... More

We had to make reservations about 8 weeks ahead of time, but it was well worth the wait! I had the sausage and broccoli rabe with beans appy and my husband had a special of the day, both absolutely delicious. Our entrees and bread were fabulous, my husband loved his duck! The only thing I think can be improved on... More

I had to make a reservation about 6 weeks in advance. Very nice, Cozy place. BYOB. I had the pear salad and the chicken margherita. Both were excellent! We were too full to have dessert! Maybe next time.

There is a reason why I keep coming back to this treasure of a restaurant. We started with a plate of grilled vegetables that was so tasty. Some of the group shared a pasta appetizer and I can still taste the flavors of the garlic and seasonings. The fresh fish sea bass and salmon were our entrée selections. Magnificently prepared,...

Terrible experience! Asked for a table. Was sternly told that the menu would not be ready until 530 and I could take a walk for 15 minutes if I wanted and then they would see if they could seat us. I must mention the place was empty! I have never been treated so rudely. Quite frankly I don't understand the... More

Decided to try Via 45 after passing by everyday and a friend recommended it. We were seated in the front on a Friday night. We were immediately asked if we could "wait to order anything" because the kitchen was backed up. Normally, I would completely understand this but the place wasn't too packed...at all. Anyway, we waited quite a bit... More
