Two of us went for dinner & drinks. We both tried the fresh fettuccine with mushrooms, spinach, artichokes & Parmesan cheese. The pasta was so fresh & delicious. The sauce was flavorful but not overpowering & you can taste the fresh ingredients.

Super rude waiter - Laura. As predicted, Laura was only quick about the bill to quantify her tip. Walked by us multiple times without saying hello or offering drinks. Then did not want to take Order. Then after 10 MINUTES said the restaurant was out of an appetizer and “she bought us an alternative” then made eye contact three time before asking how the main course was ( delivered by someone else) and we said we needed salt and pepper ( literally 1/3 of the way thru the meal). Picked up the dishes before we were finished. Just awful service

They put on an excellent Mother's Day brunch buffet, with great support from all of the staff. It was a little pricer than the normal menu, but it was worth it.

Our first time at Vistro, and we loved it! The tempura appetizer was delicious, and the warm Caesar salad outstanding! Next time, we'll ask for a booth - it was pretty hard to carry on a conversation at our table by the bar.

Vistro is a fantastic spot, the only problem is everything sounds so good. I have been there a number of times and I’m always impressed by the quality and tasty flavor combinations. Certainly one of the best places in the western burbs to grab casual lunch/dinner.

$10 pizza and Burgers (Monday/Tuesday nights) are a great value.

Two of went for lunch. We started out with the mushroom soup. We both agreed that it was the best soup we have ever had. One of us ordered the BLT with avocado sandwich & one had the chicken salad open faced. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was attentive. We are looking forward to returning.

Fantastic food, thoughtful attentive service and innovative cocktail list. We shared our Easter at Vistro, the food was fabulous but the service over the top. My sister had a special needs child and the staff went out of their way to make it easy and natural for us and the guests.

Fun fare, want to visit for a burger and a cocktail. Definitely worth a visit!

I brought friends here because I had been a few times before and liked the atmosphere and the food has been pretty good in the past. This time is was an embarrassment, having recommended it to friends. I'm sure they felt it was a complete waste of money. My friend ordered the sea bass which is almost $40. We've all had sea bass many times and know it's expensive but pay the price cause it's usually so worth it. Not this sea bass. TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY. Typically sea bass is a very thick piece of fish and if prepared right, better than lobster. This piece of sea bass, if that's what it was, was more like a thin piece of tilapia, horribly prepared. I had the chicken. I've had it before and it has been pretty good. This time, totally dry. Small wine pours at $14 a glass. All in all a very expensive bill for a lousy dinner. Sorry. Maybe it was a off night.

Everything met expectations save for two little annoyances. 1) red wine too warm. they need a better place to store red wine than under bar next to lights ?? 2) Birthday dinner for wife - no mention b hostess or server?? They had a beer tasting going on and things were pretty hectic and noisy in front bar area. Maybe staff focused on beer folks. Will return as we are fans of Paul Virant's endeavors.
