We met some friends there last night and had a good time! There were 6 of us and while waiting for the others to come we enjoyed the fresh salsa. The service was very attentive if a little pushy towards the more expensive items ;-) The best part is they have dishes with prices ranging from $15 to $50! Unfortunately... More

One of the nicer family restaurants in Dallas. The service is top notch for the price. Th place is well decorated and very clean. The food is fulfilling, quality and uniquely cooked. The fajita meat is awesome. The owner (Fran) even stopped by our table to have a good conversation. Definitely a place to go back to.

Dined here several times for dinner with co-workers while on a business trip to the Irving area and enjoyed the overall experience. The food was good and the service was excellent. Will definitely visit again in the near future.

I landed at DFW after a long delay and only airport food all day, and really wanted a nice dinner to shake off the travel dust. I found Via Real using the Trip Advisor "near me now" mobile app and liked the reviews, and decided to give it a try. This restaurant gets and A + on friendly! Dining solo... More

I have only dined here twice and both times ordered the sea scallops, as scallops are one of my favorite dishes when dining out. Both times they were not seared and a little under cooked. My friends dinners were very good ( enchiladas, and the prime rib special on New Years Eve). When we dine there again I will not... More

Walked over here from the Four Seasons. I had a great experience. The drinks were great, as was the food and the service. The ambiance is nice too, more upscale than a typical TexMex restaurant. The chips and salsa were tasty and I had a very pleasant dining experience here.

I've eaten at this restaurant a dozen times over the past two years, and again, on Saturday night with four friends. All the guests raved about their meals. The service was attentive, without being intrusive as we were catching up with one another, and wanted a leisurely meal. The range of food was excellent, our orders ranged from spinach enchiladas...

Two of us turned up for dinner without a reservation and we were seated at a table in the bar area. The service was attentive, prompt and friendly. We ordered a bottle of Merlot and I had one of their steaks which was cooked perfectly and was really tasty. Don't forget to order one of their margaritas! Great place to... More

Hi Christopher, I'm so glad that we were able to take care of the two of you! Business gets crazy quickly during the week and we find the cocktail tables to be more peaceful than other options in the dining room on those nights. I am ecstatic that you enjoyed the filet! Chef and his kitchen staff are always attentive... More
