We could not wait to have some great Mexican food on our arrival in Texas and this exceeded our expectations. Great quality food with lots of interesting options including seafood and a menu that included Mexican and non Mexican. Excellent service and delicious Margaritas. Loved it all.

We recently returned to Via Real, having eaten there over the years, and it did not disappoint. We were there to celebrate my sister's anniversary, which I shared with the waiter before they arrived. As always, their service is is solid, and a high point of any visit. Waitstaff are routinely personable, knowledgeable, and always striving to make your dinner... More

I really like Via Real, and have entertained clients there for years. The food is consistently very good, and the service is attentive. I really like the fact that they serve some very nice salads. Especially on a business trip where I have to eat out 2 meals a day. It's really nice to be able to have a lighter... More

Living in the Las Colinas area it can sometimes be hard to find a place that keeps both lunch and dinner interesting, but Via Real will keep you coming back with great specials that change often. Dinner is definitely a splurge, but lunch is reasonably priced so you end up with the greatest bang for your buck, and the benefit... More

Whoever complained about service certainly didn't visit the same restaurant we did. Our server was amazingly engaged and friendly, providing suggestions and recommendations and delivery at the speed of light. The food was wonderful, and the prices surprisingly reasonable for the quality. Be careful with the drinks, they're both strong and delicious. Thoughtful seasonal offerings, helpful and attentive staff, and... More

The scallops and sea bass are the best! I would eat here weekly if they allowed either of these at lunch. Their lunch menu is ok but for the price, it needs to be excellent! Love the salsa and the large margarita!

Choice of dishes and the specials impressive - didn't like the Green mash though - there must be another way to present Plantain mash! Server was awful - we don't want to talk about the Game' and a tall man should never stand to the side of a diner and craning necks are not part of a good night out.... More

The fountains, decor, ambiance and top-shelf seafood and Tex-Mex make this our go-to place for our anniversary every single year! The Sea Bass is incredible, as are the fajitas and everything else we get there. A must-do if you are in the area!
