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. The menu is somewhat limited, and on our most recent visit, my wife didn't see anything on the menu that she liked, so she asked our... More

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

After trying many restaurants in Red Bank - most of which last one year and close - this one has a five year history of being at the top of my list. Weather 2 or 10 in your party : all the food comes out together and is superb. The monkfish and salmon are to die for...salads are splittable very... More

Think of dining at via 45 as having a home cooked meal with steroids. Small but encompassing menu with the items done extremely well and with added special touches. Service staff is courteous and prompt. A cozy atmosphere. This byob makes you want to bring a bottle or two of good wine and linger with friends.

Will never go back. Too many other very good restaurants in Red Bank to go to. Owners/ chefs are not people friendly.

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
