We both had a cup of the delicious mushroom soup with croutons & the cheese crackers as an appetizer. I had a wedge salad & my husband had the burger/fries. Service was good & attentive.

Another great lunch at Vistro. Patrick is so great at what he does. He is as much of the reason that I will be back along with the great food. Highly recommend.

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.

The favorite aspect of this great spot is that I can entertain my family, including my grandchildren. Look forward to many fun and delicious outings!

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.

Service was really slow last Friday night. The place was busy, but had thinned out during our meal. Our waitress went missing a lot. Noise levels were off the charts making conversation difficult. Lastly, the price seemed excessive - $165 pre tip for 5 which included 3 teenagers.
Will continue to visit but this last visit didn't meet the usual standard.

Chef Virant was there that night so I figured it was a good time to order the $63 dry aged strip loin...medium...should have been crazy tender. The large portion was nice but it was tough meat. Everything else was fine.

The best onion soup that I have had in 30 years. We used to go to a great place in California that had a very similar onion soup that had cognac in it. Apparently, that was a secret ingredient
here. Always a great local place that has Chicago cuisine in the burbs. Great craft cocktails and knowledgeable and courteous staff.

Good drink selection,but not awed by the food. Wife liked the sea bass, but the butter sauce on it was too heavy. I had the crab cakes - which were just OK - and the tempura sweet potatoes - with breading that's too thick.

Vistro food was creative and good - not outstanding as I thought it might be. A bit overprices for the area. Although there was not a huge crowd, the noise level made it quite difficult to hear conversation.

My Old Fashioned was really good, and the food was great! We started with Tempura Sweet Potatoes..very unique and tasty! I had a Wedge Salad followed by the Roasted Chicken Breast. My wife went with the Warm Caesar Salad and Vistro Veggie Burger. Neither of us were sorry with our choices. We finished with cappuccino & coffee and I would definitely recommend the Blueberry Sorbet!

As good as the food was, our server Laurie made our experience worth going back!
