Went here while on a short trip to the Dallas area. Their food was amazing and the drinks were good too. Highly recommend for a nice/fancy evening.

It always consistent. Flavorful food, welcoming staff. They have an outdoor waiting area filled with fans and full bar. Can't find a parking place in front; more parking located in the back with the waiting area.

I love everything about Via Real. Service is distinctive and exceptional, while remaining subtle and unassuming. Whether I'm joining with friends in the bar for some bits and bytes, or hosting a group of clients, or attending a birthday gathering - it's always a delightful experience.

Menu is not overly Mexican. There are some very good dishes that would be served in any traditional restaurant. Excellent wait staff. This restaurant was highly recommended by locals. This is a good choice if you are staying at Four Seasons

Food and margaritas are always spot on, but what really stands out at Via Real is that they make you feel right at home from the first moment you walk through the front door.

We've eaten at Via Real for over 30 years during visits to the Dallas/Irving area, but this may have been our last. Prices are now extraordinary (>$30 for fish dishes). I had one of the few remaining Tex-Mex dishes (spinach enchiladas) and they were just so-so.

Kathy, thank you for your thoughts. You're right, prices have increased on several dishes throughout the last 30 years, and especially on the seafood options. We've desperately tried to remain budget friendly through everything, and we do have a lot of items that we haven't touched price wise in over a decade such as our chicken entrees or several of...
