                          We spent our 20th anniversary at the Vault. It was our first visit. The meal was the best I’ve had in several years. The service was impeccable too!

                          Everything was great except the ribeye was not a quality cot. It was cooked correctly but was terribly tough. I had to chew then give up and hide the bite under the mushrooms.my wife’s meal was perfect.

                          The staff at The Vault and The Heist treated us like royalty! We had a lot to celebrate and the evening was really important to us. Danielle, our waitress was phenomenal and made amazing recommendations from the menu! We enjoyed the Sea Bass and the Filet for dinner, both were cooked perfect. The drinks were amazing and eating in the Vault room was so special!!! Highly recommend the Old Fashioned drink!! We made amazing memories at this restaurant and will forever be grateful for how they treated us. Thank you!

                          An exceptional experience!! We started our evening with well crafted cocktails , and great bartenders. We moved to a table and enjoyed a fantastic meal! The bread is amazing! We both had steaks cooked to perfection. The service is way above the norm. The managers, and the chef visited our table , wishing us a happy anniversary and checking on the meal. This is a fine dining experience, at a fine dining price. Well worth it. One note , just a heads up to out of towners, there is a 33 1/3 % tax on alcohol. For wine and beer is only 16% this came as a bit of a shock to us. Just FYI I highly recommend Vault for a very special night. We will visit again.

The chief and management both came to our table to introduce themselves and make sure everything was going well on top of the food being delicious. Absolutely recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

                          The food was amazing. Those rolls! The service was out of this world. But we had to wait almost two hours for our entree. I get that they were busy, but it seems like they could have worked out a more efficient system. Otherwise, it was the perfect evening. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and the staff knew it and greeted him that way. The ambience was perfect for a romantic night. I’ll come back, but I hope we don’t have another long waiting period for food.

                          Atmosphere and waiter were excellent. Carrot ginger soup was outstanding. Miso sea bass was sub par at best. Very fishy taste. It was already bad and layered in sauce to try and cover the bad taste. I ate it but my could not. If not for this, I would have given them all perfect review.

                          Our meals prepared by executive chef Andrew were superb! My wife had scallops with Nuesky bacon which was marvelous, and I had a ribeye steak with a fantastic chimichurri sauce. The staff was so extremely friendly and the service was outstanding, especially compared to other places that we have been. Thank you, Tyler, for taking such good care of us. We look forward to recommending your restaurant to others.

                          Really wanted to love it. Servers and staff were all friendly. As noted by others, the rolls were amazing and maybe worth the trip in and of themselves. Drink orders were taken right away and showed up after not too long. Very tasty. We had the risotto appetizer as they were "out of all salads". It was very flavorful, but barely warm in terms of temperature. So, something of a disappointment there, but it tasted good so we let it go. We ordered a few steaks and a side of creamed spinach. And we waited. And waited. And waited. We weren't in a hurry and just assumed they were short staffed. The entrees did show up about 40 minutes after our appetizer. The server did apologize. The entrees did come out how we ordered them in terms of cooking temperature and the creamed spinach was very good. I think we would give the Vault another try when back in town, but this particular visit was, all-in-all, an average dining experience.

                          My husband and I took all suggestions from Scott our server. We had both specials, a double cut Berkshire pork chop and a coffee crusted tuna steak. Best we’ve had, and that says a lot. We’ve eaten Jocko’s pork chops and seafood from the Hawaii and California coasts. All our questions… from the history of the building to directions to the restroom… were answered with patience and precision. Each course was excellent, starting with (their signature?) butter-glazed and salted dinner rolls and ending with a layered, moist carrot cake that didn’t skimp on icing. We $pent a lot. Go for a celebration meal, then go back for a cocktail and app or salad at the bar. Take a friend, talk about important things. Find out who is the head chef and let me know.
