We enjoyed the Sunday brunch buffet. If you don't see it in the buffet line the made to order cooks can probably come up with it. Be sure and make reservations if you expect to get a table. Our waiter Nate was superb. We almost felt like we had our own personal waiter. The food is always first tier.

We simply love Via Real and its one of most favorite places to dine (lunch or dinner) in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Great food - always! Never been disappointed. Creative and tasty specials and always delicious menu favorites too.

The staff is first class and always take care of us.

The food presentation was nice and was flavorful. Nice atmosphere but a bit noisy. Our table for two was in a smaller side room with large tables with multiple patrons. Our servers were ok but not as attentive as we believed they should. We waited to make requests while servers casually stood at the table next to us wiping water spots from glasses. Surprisingly, Fran walked by our table without saying hello but engaged other patrons at the larger tables. We had to request a dessert menu then waited 15 minutes to be served. All in all a nice but average experience

James, thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. It is always our goal to provide an excellent experience. I am sorry that we failed to do so for your New Year's Eve celebration. I am sorry that Fran didn't make it by your table. I know on those super busy nights, it can be a bit overwhelming to her. We are not ok with being average, so we really do appreciate the feedback!

Never ever had anything that was not the best foods, drinks, service, and ambiance. Most of the time the owner also comes by the table to visit! What a pleasure it is every time we eat here!

Another anniversary celebrated with Fran and the staff at ViaReal. Awesome queso with spinach, enchiladas and Sea Bass entree. The margaritas are excellent as well. We have been coming here since 1989 for several of our special occasions and we’ll be back again. Definitely our favorite upscale Mexican restaurant, although we still miss Diego.

They should hear 10 stars so I am going to give it to them. Flavourful food. Beautiful establishment. Impeccable Customer Service. Even if the food was subpar, we would patronage this establishment. They got it right. It's about creating a dining experience with their customers and I was proud to bring my family here for the very 1st time. Now they know why we love it here and they will drive from Chico,TX to come back without me. Lol!

It’s been years since I’ve been here. The food and service are very good, but the dining room was loud and less intimate than I remembered. I guess that happens with popularity! Appreciated the valet parking. Still an excellent neighborhood spot.
