The Low Down


Look Good: Forgot to bring a bottle? Not to worry, there's a liquor store next door. Wine is also now available for sale at the restaurant. Diners are welcome to bring their own for a $7 corkage fee.

Good for Groups: The restaurant's private dining room seats up to 20 guests and has rentable wine lockers, a sound system and plenty of Old World charm. The room can be rented for $200.

Know Before You Go: La Vista does not accept reservations, so expect a wait on the busy weekends.
