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.

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.

Horrible experience. Made reservation for 6 through YP dine on January 19 2018 for winterlicious for Saturday February 3rd. Received confirmation email. Called the resteraunt on the day of. Resteraunt did not have my reservation. Had to find another resteraunt very last minute to celebrate my daughters birthday.

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!

It's refreshing to walk into a unvisited restaurant and feel so welcomed. A friendly smile, a "How can I help you" and recommendations that were bang on. Via Norte, a family restaurant is a jewel that needs to be experienced. The food is prepared simply and is remarkably delicious. Bon Appetite Loreto Ferri

The waiter was pushing the special quite agressively. However, the food was very good and made up for that. This was not traditional Portuguese food but instead something that was trying to a bit more mainstream to the north American palate. The atmosphere was pleasant and quiet. The decor was modern and eclectic. This resteraunt is reminiscent of an upscale bistro you would now find in modern day Lisbon catering to more progressive tastes.

We went for New Year's eve dinner at Via Norte and I will definitely go back again, as will recommend to friends. The food was really good and service was great. A little bit expensive, but definitely worth it for a special dinner!
