I decided to go here for the first time with a friend, after being invited.The atmosphere and ambiance was high-end. While I enjoy most Mexican cuisine, the entrees they offered just didn't suit me and I thought the pricing was a bit high...The margarita was good, though.

Very upscale Mexican restaurant with menu prices supporting this. The chips served are very thin and not oily. The salsa that we received was mild, chips and salsa are excellent. I was here with another female friend, both of us with small appetites, so shared a plate and was charged a $5 plate share charge! That was unexpected and not... More

It has been a few years since I have been to Via Real since I do not live close by anymore. It did not disappoint. I had the Cancun plate and the Shrimp/Scallops were fantastic. I need to come back more often. I have never had a bad meal or service here. The entire family loved it.

The atmosphere was good: Lots of people having a nice time out, but I could still carry on a conversation above the background noise. The food was good. The price point seemed appropriate. And our waiter was a pleasure. The tamales were good, as were the margaritas.
