Restore logging in VS doesn't always show #3633
Once restore completes, the dialogs above simply go away and there's no way to go back and see the restore logs and what packages got restored
@balachir the logs you've pasted are from dotnet tooling auto restore and not from solution restore scenario. Even in Dev14 if you click restore on solution, it will not log anything in output window.
But there is a workaround for this, these solution restore logs are written under Build in output window. So if you build the solution once (even though it fails) and then do solution restore then it will write these restore logs in output window for dev14 as well as dev15.
Although this is regression for auto restore from dev14 to dev15 since we aren't writing logs for new auto restore for .net core project (CPS based) @alpaix we need to discuss this tomorrow and finalize on this.

New Console Application (.NET Core) and restore packages, we don't see any restore logs in Output Window

We don't log auto restore messages to build output window since previous messages were from DotNet. NuGet only logs restore success or failure or noop message in build output window. We just changed to activate this window even without building the solution.
