Great place in the middle of Red Bank (the sunny side of the street). It feels that all dishes are prepared just for you no short cuts. The ingredients are of high quality.

Recently had dinner at Via 45 and was very impressed with how fresh the food was. Even though the menu is quite limited, there was a good sampling of pasta, meat and fresh fish dishes. It's BYOB, so don't forget the wine. The staff will...More

The food was obviously very fresh and made to order and very delicious. While the entrees were very good, our favorite part of the meal was a wonderful salad with kale, shaved Brussels, pears, beets, carrots, onion, feta, etc. It was fantastic. We would return....More
