    Very friendly staff. Drinks were very good. Made a great smoked old fashion. The ribeye was possibly the best Ribeye I’ve had.

    Food was phenomenal and waitress was absolutely great. However, after spending 3 hours for dinner, we were going to go upstairs and was told due to my husband wearing tennis shoes we could not go upstairs to the lounge because of my husbands shoes. He was in a bad accident and has an artificial fitted orthodic brace (AFO) and must only wear his shoes to prevent falls. Very upsetting!

    Drinks were great! Food was ok but not worth the price. Do not trust the web site the food does not make the details from the web site. Much better steak houses in Hot Springs with much better value.

    We visit the Vault for every one of our special occasions or anytime we want to celebrate. We have always had a top notch experience and last night was no exception. In fact- we have never had such a special dining experience. Our server, Chef Disney, and Jessica Soares all made for a fantastic night out! We can’t thank y’all enough!

    We got to the Vault early, and as our table wasn’t quite ready, we had a drink at the bar. Drinks were very good and we were quickly seated. Our waiter, Mitchell, was amazing. Described the menu perfectly, made great suggestions, helped us pick a nice bottle of wine, and in general went above and beyond. Our meal was amazing and we will definitely be back.

    Amazing food; very fresh and good flavors. Our waiter was very nice and engaging. The ambience is very laid back but fancy. The food was well done but just a little overpriced compared to some other fine dining in comparison to quality and quantity. Great entree options, there were a variety of choices that were very appealing. Service was a little slow for how not busy it was - we were surprised to be seated right next to another group when there were more places spread out.

    Mitchell took amazing care of us when we had a party of 6 for my husbands 50th birthday. Food and drinks were excellent. Upstairs is a bar that we asked about and Mitchell told us a little about it so we headed up there after dinner to lounge on some comfy chairs and have an after dinner drink.

    We went for a special occasion. Originally we asked for the two pound tomakhawk. Within 10 minutes, a tomahawk came out. We were a little confused as we were told it would be 40 mins. As the steak came out, I asked the server if it was 2 pound because it was very big and she said yes but it was actually the 4 pound steak. Our waiter comes by and said this is the four pounder as we were eating this as he knew we ordered the 2 pounder. We later receive our bill and was charged the 4 pound but the issue wasn’t about the amount, it was the fact that the waiter knew we ordered the 2 pounder and charged as for the four pounder. We were just confused with all of this.

    Overall very good for our first visit to the Vault. Service was excellent. Burrata was outstanding. Petite filet, whipped potatoes and brussel sprouts all very good. House rolls, outstanding. Only negatives were a very small serving of potatoes for the price and the onion soup was to salty. We will definitely come back to the Vault.
