Probably my most favorite Mexican place to eat at! Love the spinach enchiladas, chimis, and fajitas!

The margaritas are very good and the food is excellent. The staff is friendly and give very good service. I would recommend to anyone who wants to try something different than your run of the mill Tex-Mex.

The food was excellent: lamb-chops, salmon, steak things you don't expect at Mexican. The drinks were also excellent: the large margaritas are LARGE!! My only critique is the chips and salsa. I've had better at cheaper places. All in all, very good and right off Four Seasons property.

I was in Dallas (Irving) on a business trip and arrived late at the restaurant around 9:30pm (kitchen closes at 10:00pm) however, differently from most of the restaurants, I was very well served and the owner herself advised me about the best way to order my meal. It was a great experience and only made me want to come back.... More

This is a beautiful setting for a cozy meal or a full business outing. Having reservations, our party of 12 were seated timely and made to feel very welcome. The food is always excellent at Via Real and the service is impeccable. Valet parking is available if desired.

The food here is delicious and the service is good too. The servers are quick and polite. I recommend the black bean soup. It's very good and not too filling. Their salsa is good too.

Tucked away at end of a shopping center near the country club/golf course. Higher end Mexican food. Restaurant is very nice looking inside- well decorated and prices higher but not overdone. Service is very good and food was fresh/good. I would recommend and go back. Free parking

When we arrived, the host greeted us with a pleasant smile;' this welcoming spirit was followed up by the server. I had an omelette which was made to my order (unfortunately the cook was not too pleasant; my mom said that maybe he was having a bad day). We all had poinsettia drink which was refreshing and a great compliment... More
