Guests will enjoy:

  • Custom menus featuring Chef Paul Virant's renowned seasonal cuisine, highlighting locally grown, artisan ingredients from Midwestern family farms – options include preset appetizer tables, charcuterie boards, specially made desserts and much more

  • Hand-selected wine pairings and house-crafted cocktails, along with mocktails and other non-alcoholic options

  • Exceptional service from our well-trained, accommodating staff

  • A beautifully designed space, unlike any other venue in the area, with personalized menus and table decor

Scroll through for scenes from recent Wood Oven Dinner Parties at Vistro ...

“I held my sisters’ 50th BD party at Vistro last Saturday night and felt that I must ... compliment all who created such an amazing dining experience and party! Every expectation and comfort was met! We had a pre-planned menu served family style and I was very happy with each serving from appetizer to salad to the wood oven pizzas to the two entrees and awesome sides. ... The birthday cake made by his pastry chef was incredible ‘yum’ ... . [T]he Manager I worked with, Alissa, was super friendly, detailed, back to me right when I was ready to get the information, accommodating and fun to help me plan the evening! It is a comfortable, cozy yet a modern dining environment and I felt totally vindicated in my decision not to go downtown for the special birthday event.”
