A colleague and I were looking for some where to eat and found this on TripAdvisor. Staff was amazing Diagonal was so nice....now the food...it was perfect. I order vegetarian fajitas and they were to die for. We didn't have a reservation but they took us anyway. Inside decor was very cool and the atmosphere wasn't stuffy. While this place... More

This is a higher end restaurant but the prices are actually not that bad. I ordered the ranchers special which is a sampler plate: relleno, taco, enchilada, rice. Everything was delicious and potion sizes are big. This restaurant is good for a special occasion, work dinner, etc.

We stayed at the Four Seasons with a group for 4 days. Most us in the group went the Via Real for dinners. My husband and I were attended to very well and promptly. After we were seated, I believe the owner of the restaurant came over to greet and welcome us to the restaurant. We thought that was a... More

A nice lunch option in the Las Colinas area, tucked In a strip mall. Better than your average Mexican restaurant. Salads were fresh with crisp lettuce and seasoned chicken. Carnitas tacos were also tasty. Fajitas smelled delicious, although we did not try them. A bit higher price compared to other places, but the pleasant environment was worth it.

For pricey Mexican food, very average. In fact, Mezo Maya in Dallas (both locations) is much better. Actually, a lot better. What I really did not enjoyed was the high speed "we want to turn the table" service when we make a booking at 8:00 PM and there is nobody behind us or waiting at the door and there are... More

I'm so sorry this happened. I am also quite surprised. Our servers are trained specifically not to do this, and they are very, very good at not rushing anyone. It does not matter if it's 6pm or 8pm or 12 noon, every single guest matters enough to let them enjoy their time with us, whether they are in a rush... More

While staying across the street for a wedding, 12 of us ate dinner here and enjoyed ourselves very much. The food was good with many items from which to choose, and the service was good, also.

Great service but overly priced Mexican food. It's still refried beans & chicken. It's not that "special", but,... The ambiance is very nice. I have had the bar over charge me on at least 3 occasions. Take a close look at your bill before leaving.

Gregory thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. We're concerned about the over charges; I'd really like to talk to you about it next time you're in. I am truly sorry. That is not acceptable and we want to make sure this doesn't happen. Refried beans and chicken! Well, those are staples of any Mexican restaurant, of course. But... More

I really enjoy the extra attention we receive from the servers each time we go there. The food is fresh and hot. The menu varies with tasty seasonal chef specials.
