“Done”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

I think changing what wasn't broken the last 25 years broke them. This place is done and closed...nor sure if they plan to re-open. It was a great cafe/hang-out pre or post bar hopping. They should bring that back versus
trying to make it a high end restaurant.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

We were there for a mid-afternoon lunch on the patio. The food was casual and excellent and the service was great.

“Subpar, nothing special, find somewhere else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

This was my third trip to Via and it will be my last. All three occasions gave me similar feelings.

The food is average. Nothing special sticks out, taste was just ok. For Crescent street, it was a let down.

We had issues each time with service. Not the waitress' fault, she was alone to serve large groups. The manager came out, we were hoping to help, but he also complained about how slow she was, in front of us! Not something you do.

The only redeeming factor is that you can always a seat, even when all other places have a 20min wait. Wait...is that really a good thing?
