Extremely fresh food!

We had a reservation here last Friday based on recommendation from another couple. They were quick to seat us and patient as we scoured the menu. The menu changes often apparently and the hand written menu is a nice touch. We ordered four appetizers which were a bit too many if you want to enjoy... read more

We made a reservation about a month and a half ago for me and my family for my 53rd birthday. This was our first time here and we live about 2 blocks from Via. We arrived on time, our table was ready. Our server came over to introduce herself and told us about the the specials that were not on... More

Second time here and I can now write an objective review. The food is the freshest and innovative moderately priced in the area. No just talk. The owners are the chefs and the pride shows. Went for Mothers Day and booked it weeks in advance after learning that Via 45 books fast. Table was waiting and they immediately offered you... More

Hesitant to share as already can be hard to get a reservation here, but, hands down, best restaurant in RB. Not fast food - in the best sense - fresh ingredients, and made to order! Consistently superb! To add to the overall experience, the staff is friendly, and patient with questions, you dont feel rushed through your meal, and the... More

Via 45 has consistently offered well prepared food. They have started offering some wine tasting dinners which sound very good and would be a good way to try the restaurant an have the food paired with the wines. The restaurant is run by two women. One being the chef, who has accommodated changes and special requests a couple of times.... More

The food is delicious with many choices to choose from. Service was excellent. The owner of the restaurant is there most times to greet you with a smile - a very pleasant man.

Very tough to get a table in this small gem of a restaurant. The menu changes every day but the food is excellent. The staff and owners are friendly and make it their business to remember your name.

We have just returned from our second visit to Via 45 and were just as pleased this time as the first . The decor and ambience is warm and inviting , eclectic but elegant at the same time. Although one open space the owners have been able to position the tables and other furniture as to create smaller spaces within... More

I've eaten at Via45 several times. Their "claim to fame" is that all of their food is cooked at the time of your order. No doubtedly, that is a fact. You can taste the freshness of every course that you eat. Via45 is one of the few restaurants that I feel comfortable recommending to all of my family & friends.

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 expected... More
