I have been here four times. The first time my husband and I really enjoyed the food. After that, the food was just average and we couldn't understand what the hype was for this place. Ambiance and service are pretty good but not worth having to make a reservation weeks in advance to be able to eat there. I We... More

This has to be my absolute favorite restaurant in the area. I've been a couple times now and the food never disappoints. You have to make sure you book well in advance if you want to get dinner at a prime time on the weekend, but not too far in advance during the week. The menu rotates based on what... More

We came to this restaurant without a reservation because it was at an extremely late dinner hour (around 9:30-10pm). We walked inside and were greeted by the hostess. We saw at least 7 tables wide open so figured we wouldn't have a problem being seated. She told us that there was no availability. When we questioned her about all of... More

Nothing disappointed my husband and I at this restaurant. The service and atmosphere were great and the food was incredibly delicious. We shared the broccoli rabe with sausage for appetizer. II was very tasty. My husband had a filet of pork for entree and I had the salmon. I know their menu changes daily but both these entrees were outstanding.... More

We visited Via45 because we met some people and asked for their recommendation of where to eat. One of the guys was a chef (at another establishment) and they gave the place a thumbs up. The menu changes daily. We chatted with one of the co-owners. Friendly people. The waitress was probably a bit too casual in her attitude, but... More

Notice I didn't say anything was excellent. This was my second visit here, and my impression is that they are a bit inconsistent. There were six in our party, so we tried a lot of different dishes, but nothing was outstanding. Staff is very nice and friendly, room is small and comfortable. Portions are a good size, so I shared... More

We had a enjoyable dinner after a show. This is a small place downtown with eclectic decor. The menu is changed daily by the chef / owner and the ingredients were fresh. Service was prompt and attentive. I would return to this BYOB restaurant.

Found this place on TA. Small comfortable place. They called me a day ahead of time to ask about food allergies for my party, nice touch. Menu changes daily depending on what is fresh. Monkfish Francaise was wonderful. Food was outstanding as was the staff. It's also a BYOB so you can count on the drinks being good too.. Would... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Fresh ingredients daily creates the hand written menu by the owner/chef. Nice restaurant, would definitely return.

On summer mornings, you can see the chefs having a coffee at an outside table, discussing that evening's menu. Limited offerings but fresh and inventive. Often long wait time between courses but so worth it.
