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.

We had a wonderful time at Via Norte restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and great service! The waiter recommended a tasty wine, and everyone was pleased with the food that they ordered. I would recommend getting the pork chop, as it was definitely one of the best pork chops I've ever had!

It was a very quiet night because it was extremely cold weather but my friends and I went for a Winterlicious meal. It was all amazing! Each of our appetizers were both aesthetically pleasing and very delicious. They had clearly taken their time to present their food beautifully. Our server was also very nice and attentive and gave a great recommendation for the wine. I cannot wait to go back, whether for Winterlicious or otherwise!

My partner and I had our first trip together in Portugal, so we wanted to try out this restaurant in Little Portugal. We were not disappointed. In particular, our waiter was a Portuguese native, and he showed all the great attention, hospitality, and professional knowledge we experienced in Portugal. The food was lovely as well! Fresh and really well prepared. The ambiance was nice, quiet, not particularly noteworthy, but as with most of the places we visited in Portugal, the emphasis was always on the food and the service. Well worth a visit.

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.
