Culinary Gem on College

A wonderful experience from appetizer to deserts tastefully prepared and visually enticing. This family run restaurant is both welcoming and pleasing a must visit for those looking for a twist on the average Portuguese meal.

Awful service. Mediocre food. Would not go back. Was very hopefully going in to try this establishment as it's rated #1 Portuguese for 2018. Didn't get to try anything that I would rate anything near #1.

We were there for Summerlicious. The food and services are excellent. The Semi-boneless Quail and Bitoque are the best. Fillet of Seabream 'Dourada' is also good but we didn't expect the bones with the word "fillet". The only downside of the restaurant is difficult to find parking in the neighborhood. Fortunately, subway station is not too far away.

The service was fantastic. My fiance has to eat gluten free due to a medical condition and the servers and kitchen staff went above and beyond to answer all of our questions and provide us with a phenomenal dining experience. We both agreed that this meal was one of the best 'licioius meals we've had in the past 4 years.

Never knew about this restaurant if not for Summerlicious. Came for lunch with another couple and was pleasantly surprised. All of us except my husband ordered one of the fish on menu and enjoyed it. My husband's lamb shank was a bit disappointing ... he said it was quite dry despite after asking for extra sauce. Ambience was very nice but service was uneven as everything we asked for had to be reminded before we would get it ... and the place was not busy at all. But overall, it was still a pleasant experience.

This was our first visit. It was a great experience. We had friends from New York. They left raving about the restaurant and atmosphere. The food was first rate. Both the seafood and the steak. Portuguese wine very good. Service was also good. We will be back.

Very decent food and service as usual, but there were only a few patrons dining at this fine restaurant on this Friday evening. Hopefully there will be more people to dine at this place in the future.

Fantastic! Great wines. The sardines, soup and seafood platter for 2 are highly recommended. One of the best espressos we've had in a long time. Will definitely be back to sample the rest of the menu.

It was pretty terrible. We had to seat ourselves and hang our own jackets. We had to ask for the menus. There was hair in the butter, my glass was dirty, and the food was subpar. The chorizo tasted like my friends sardines. My salmon was ok and the creme brûlée had a weird taste. The bread was cold the first time around and when my friend asked for more bread, the bread was rock hard! They only had 1 waitress; which is fine considering the place was empty, but she was really awkward. It wasn’t worth the $60 bill I paid (separate from my friend) and I really would never recommend this place to anyone.

The folks at Via Norte know what they are doing, from providing an inviting, classy environment with mellow ambient music to offering attentive, knowledgeable service, and wonderfully prepared food, creatively presented and tasty to the last bite. The salted cod and the grilled squid were excellent! A no-rush approach made it easy to linger and enjoy a beverage and extended conversation. I'll be back!
