Just O.K.

I was so excited for this place because I heard and read great things...but it was just okay. My food was okay and so was my boyfriend's but not great. Just seemed like a basic dish that I could cook up at home - nothing special about it. Service was good but again not great. I think I just... read more

This is a wonderful place….. ambiance, food, hosts. All super. Claudette, chef, will come out to your table to make sure that any food issues you have will be considered and not an issue for you there. The food is suburb. You will have a bit more time waiting for your food as it is prepared when you order. No... More

After several weeks of extremely cold and snowy weather as well as cabin fever, one warmer day (Temps above 30 degrees) prompted us to venture out to one of our favorite restaurants again, “Via45”. As always it was a wonderful dining experience as well as a gourmet’s delight. The restaurant was totally filled and you have to have a reservation... More

Very visit has been wonderful. Tonight, what a pleasure to have an easy going spectacular meal on Valentine's Day. This will be I hope the first of many Valentine dinners at Via 45. Every meal is made to order, come to you expertly prepared. It feels like you were at a private seating with our own chef. The service was... More

Didn't think I would return but had a gift card. Food is ok and menu is extremely limited. I have been to many restaurants that stress fresh, but this place just doesn't have many choices. Just chicken, fish and pasta the night we went. Something about this place is just blah. Have a few dollars remaining on the gift card... More

And if you dont see something you like the chef/owner will personally come out, sit down with you, and discuss a... More

this is one of my all-time favorite spots but since it was written up in the NY Times you can hardly get a reservation. Fresh food and knowledgeable staff make it a gem in the Red Bank Restaurant scene.

My husband and I visited here while were on our 21 day elimination diet...very strict. And they were so accomadating. They only use fresh ingredients so their menu changes daily. So it was easy to eat on this diet. Going back as soon as we are done to eat the way they actually want to prepare it! Looking forward to... More

One of the best restaurants in the area! You need to book a reservations far in advance, but it's so worth it! The food is incredible, and the staff and service are equally impressive.

Was looking forward to going to this restaurant, because I heard how wonderful it was. It was nothing special. Very limited menu and I mean very limited. The menu is hand written for the evening and I have had better fish at a dinner. I ordered a BLT salad.t was lettuce tomato onion and some bacon with blue cheese dressing.... More
