I can't figure out why I've been asked to write a review when Vistro took a full 7 days from the day of my reservation until now, to take my reservation off of "pending." Furthermore, I have received zero points for said reservation, when 500 were stated on Opentable. Obviously, anything I need to say about my experience at Vistro will fall even flatter than my opinion already is in regards to how Opentable and Vistro has poorly handled this yet has the audacity to ask for a review. You both fail in this situation. Is that what you were expecting to hear?

Birthday Dinner. My girlfriend and I went out for a simple dinner and the food was fantastic! Bay Mussels and tempura green beans as apps came out quick and we're done to perfection. Dinner was fried chicken for her and trout for me. The portion sizes were excellent and everything was done perfectly.

Vistro is a casual family restaurant that has very expensive wine list. We were shocked. All entrees are around $20.00 and the wines generally exceeded $60.00.

Every mouthful was a surprise! The roasted beet salad was totally unexpected: the variety of vegetables and their preparation and seasoning, a yogurt dressing that couldn't be seen and tasted only subtly. The crab cake was a true Maryland style (I lived in Baltimore for 8 years!) crab cake, almost no fillers, light, flaky crab meat. I tried the Vidal Blanc wine by the owner's own vineyard and was very pleasantly surprised--took a bottle home. My partner had a delightful hand crafted margherita pizza which he ate to the last crumb. The Boston Cream Parfait turned out to be way too much for me--although I did consume it all--after such a delicious meal, but I would order it again to share. This place was a great find for a spot before a concert, but we will return whenever we want something a little bit special without breaking the bank.

Food and team are always great. My step-son's chicken was undercooked at first, but the staff replaced it with a properly cooked chicken and also did not charge us for that meal. Hey, stuff happens and the team took responsibility for making it right and apologized profusely. We'll always return to Vistro and Vie.

Always great service. You can depend on the staff and the food equally. Wine is always a great choice along with the various mixed drinks that I have enjoyed.

Nothing better than a casual restaurant that you can visit any time and eat the best of food cooked the best of ways.

I was very disappointed by our experience. We were told to just sit anywhere and there were a few tables occupied, but not what I would have thought for a Hinsdale restaurant at 12:30 on a Thursday. Service was very slow, as we had to ask twice for a menu, but there was only one server who was being helped by the hostess, I think. We both ordered the daily special (soup or salad, entree & cookie) and then waited for 15 minutes for our salad. Very disappointed by the quality of the lettuce...wilted and the the ends were brown & soft. What a disappointment. Bad salad in the middle of the summer. Wow. The fish & chips were excellent, although we waited way too long. The final straw was having to ask for our check, TWICE. Our cookie was handed to us as we were leaving. Not asked if we would like coffee, just handed us the cookie. We were not in any hurry but almost 2 hours for lunch is too long. We were concerned that our meters would expire. Too bad...great location, pleasant atmosphere but no reason to ever go back.

Food was good but overpriced as were the drinks. Service was poor as waitress not trained very well. Have been here a number of times over the years and quality of waitstaff is uneven. Menu needs updating.

Our waitress was excellent. She checked to see if special drinks could be made, made great suggestions and answered menu questions with an obvious knowledge of food. When it became busy additional staff made sure we had what we needed and bussed our table. Everything was delicious.

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
