So why one may ask did I visit this restaurant again when my first experience here was not that favorable? Simple, it's because we went here for a company team lunch! I thought my experience was better than my first visit overall, but once again, the food arrived semi-cold, I don't blame the chefs, the kitchen staff or the waiters,... More

Service was very good in lounge but not as good in restaurant. Food was good. We had steaks & fajitas. Desserts were very good. Nice atmosphere.

If I'm traveling in the Dallas area, this is a nice place to stop and have a drink and have a good meal. Its also next to the Four Seasons which has a great Golf Course where the Bryon Nelson PGA is played.

The service and atmosphere were very good. The food in my opinion was not what I would call traditional Mexican food, but it was very top notch. We enjoyed the Margarita's, and they did have a very good selection of drinks. Overall, it was very good experience and we left full and happy. The complimentary valet parking was a nice... More

Hi Will! All of us at Via Real thank you for your review! There is nothing we love more than hearing back from our guests. Thank you! You are correct. This is not your average Tex-Mex/Mexican cuisine. It is so much more! Of course our menu offers good ole enchiladas and fajitas but we specialize in Southwestern cuisines. Dishes such... More

Food caused my wife and I to have upset stomachs that night and next day? We have had the same uncomfortable experience twice in the past month, so will not return anytime soon. My wife is a great cook and she thinks maybe they are not rinsing off the Beans prior to cooking. We usually eat traditional Mexican Food, such... More

We went here for Mothers' Day 2015. The cuts of lamb were tender and moist, served at the perfect temperature. The service was perfect. Just enough attention to keep the drinks from going dry, but not in the way of the conversation. These guys have it down.

I'm from Texas, born and raised. So when I think back to the most "upscale" mexican restaurants I've grown up with....none of them compare to the quality of food, quick friendly professional service or lively atmosphere I found at Via Real. Go. You won't regret it.
