Our waiter, Paul, was very knowledgeable and helpful. The combo of tenderloin and fish was wonderful. The LARGE margarita should be experienced by everyone.

We had a group dinner here and it was excellent-- private room and great service. The Chilean Sea Bass was the highlight of my dinner!

After a long day of traveling, we went to Via Real for dinner. We expected a good Mexican meal but this was, hands down, the best meal either of us had eaten in a long, long time. The salsa and chips were perfect as were the delicious high end margaritas served in large martini glasses. We had some ceviche and... More

The filet was cooked to perfection and arrived at the table flaming! The calamari appetizer was plentiful for a party of five. The noise level was reasonable, but it was a bit dark, and someone kept turning the lights down further.

Thank James B
Lisa A, Manager at Via Real Gourmet Mexican, responded to this review

James, we're delighted you enjoyed that filet - that is one of our signature entrees that we thoroughly enjoy creating and delivering. It can be hard to get the lighting just right when daylight savings times hits. We have to play with it until we get it right - we're sorry about that. Please, please let us know if it's... More

We went with another couple. They had chicken an shrimp fajitas. I had the Monterey Chicken and my husband had the Grouper. We share a jalapeño Caesar salad.
