Via Norte is a terrific restaurant. I take friends from out of the area for lunch and they cannot wait for me to invite them back. It is Portuguese, so obviously a fish restaurant. I took my 2 sisters for dinner before Christmas. They are...definitely not Portuguese and they are still talking about it. The waiter was terrific with them. They loved it. I have a good riend in Manhattan and she can't wait to go back.More

We came for authentic Portuguese cuisine and we were delighted. We sampled the famous green soup, caldo verde, with potato, onion, thinly sliced kale and a drizzle of olive oil, and sardinhas grelhadas, grilled fillet of sardines with charred peppers, grilled pineapple, mushrooms, topped with...onion confit. Our mains were traditional; grilled monkfish, for one and grilled cod, for the other, both served with broccoli, rapini and potatoes. For dessert we revelled in the nata du ceu, a version of tiramisu, topped with more cream than was good for us. Even though it was a quiet evening in this good sized restaurant, the warmth of our welcome by our server and the chef made the evening feel special.More

This place is charming and the food and service are great. Terrific selection of fresh fish as well as other items. Ordered mains of tuna, beef tenderloin and lamb shank. All were beautifully presented and delicious. No room for dessert but the selections sounded tasty.

Hi. The restaurant is upscale, but we were not dressed up, and didn't feel out of place. You will be fine with nice casual clothes.
