A word from Vault Restaurant
Standing out like a fresh tattoo on a burly forearm, The Vault Restaurant serves mouth-watering martinis, delicious wines and fabulous food. Once inside, you will be greeted by an eclectic, lively room, a diverse menu and tantalizing cocktails, including “the best Caesar in town.” First built in 1948, The Vault retains many of its original features, including the concrete bank vault. Outside the private vault, guests are seated in the restaurant’s lounge or dining room, surrounded by an eclectic décor, including bicycle frames, ornate mirrors, and a female statue residing above the bar! The funky style combined with live jazz or blues music and you’ve got yourself a hip and quirky restaurant, with a cool, laissez-faire vibe. The Vault’s diverse menu features Northwest cuisine, offering dishes that are simple, yet rich in flavour.

    We were in for our anniversary and to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our server was excellent and the food is awesome as always. I had the chicken breast and my wife had the seafood mix dish and we would recommend both. We are both huge fans of Delirium beer which this is the only place that we can seem to find this Belgian gem.

    As always, I and my group enjoyed the cuisine although the special of the day was unavailable, as it must have been a popular choice. Our reservations were for 6:15 there was not enough. I have had pretty much everything on the menu and do enjoy a little variation. The Snapper is probably my least favorite item on the menu.

    This resTaurant (Vault) is a friendly place. The menu is great. I had the tiger prawns, my partner the seafood sampler. Both great meals. The wine list is good sized and complete. The bread is served warm and lots of it. It is to die for. The service is good, not overly cloying, but quick to respond to every nod.

  • Disappointing.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 4/1/2014
    The waitress was excellent. Very helpful in helping us select a wine. (even brought us a couple tasters to try) Also moved us to a table by the window when we mentioned the heavy traffic going by our original sitting place. My wife ordered the steak special medium rare, but it came back at least medium. I think perhaps they didn't allow for it to carry on cooking after being removed from the heat? I ordered the boneless ribs which were very tender but had too sauce (Marinade?) on them. I couldn't taste the actual meat flavor. The rest of the meal was good and we will probably go back again sometime, but as this was a special Birthday party we were on the whole disappointed.

    I have been to the Vault 3 times now and the food wasn't up to par. My hubby had ordered the Seafood Hot Pot and was a bit disappointed to find the curry flavour not as good as he expected. The calamari wasn't as tasty as we expected. I had the tiger prawns and I thought they were great. We will come again and be a bit more cautious about our orders. We had pretty good service. There were 2 large noisy groups so we didn't get as much attention as normal but it was pretty good.

    I have been to The Vault before, I was thrilled to get the birthday special. I took my mom and son ,they loved it! The steak was perfect, the bread delicious, the service excellent. My mom has decided that she wants Mother's day and her birthday at The Vault, in the actual vault. I love the decor and original building.

    The Vault was very busy and had a great vibe going on the evening we were there. Has a "downtown" feeling without the hassle of driving. If you are in the Surrey, Langley area and are looking for a place to dine that has the food, service, atmosphere .... and is easy to get to, this is the place!

    Though I love the Vault for being in my own neighbourhood and do insist on coming with guests,the menus needs to change to keep me coming back. For this reason I have only given an over all rating of three. Even a seasonal change would be good....and the service was a bit slow on the drinks. Otherwise the company was good, our friends were pleased with the fare and we all had a good time.

    This was my first time to the Vault. I generally, will go to the Washington Avenue Grill in White Rock (same owners). I am all about windows and view. I was invited by friends in Cloverdale, to the Vault. I was very pleasantly, surprised that I liked this restaurant. Certainly, doesn't have the view or lots of windows, but the décor and ambiance were very good. I will come back again. And, being familiar with the menu (similar to Washington Avenue) I had no problems what to order. As in Washington Avenue Grill, the food is very good and nicely, prepared. The service, starting with the Hostesses, and table service was very friendly and welcoming. Bottom line, I will come back and now I have a new restaurant to enjoy.

    The four of us each chose something different from the menu - the steak special of the day, braised shortribs, snapper with tiger prawns, and a chicken pasta dish. The chef was able to modify the chicken plate for our picky eater, yay. We were all happily satisfied with our dishes, but there was no question that the beef entrees were the best. The only down side was that the portions were rather small. We were there on a Monday so took advantage of their dollar off draught beer specials. They offered many craft beers, which was great. The waitress was friendly, and helped us choose some of our orders. Water was brought to the table as soon as we sat, and bread was put out while we waited for our meals.

    Love the vault. I have been there quite a few times. This time however I felt very rushed by our server. We wanted to have a long relaxing meal. But we felt rushed to order and the rushed to pay:( It was a Sunday evening and the restaurant wax probably only 30% full so it didn't seem like they needed the table. Food was outstanding as usual. Would have have been nice to have had more time to enjoy each other, our food and the great atmosphere.

    My wife and I have been to The Vault Restaurant several times with groups ranging from 2 - 14. The food has always been very good...every time. I would certainly recommend this restaurant for anyone that is interested in a great meal in a funky atmosphere. There's usually a person playing guitar and singing on the tiny stage on the weekends. This past Friday it was an amazing young lady with a beautiful voice. The volume was low enough to hear her but not intrusive in any way. This is my "go to" restaurant in the Cloverdale area. I can recommend the scallop apply, the short ribs and the steaks are great.

    We had a great experience and look forward to returning again. There was only one item that is worth mentioning (but not a big deal); we had to wait quite a while before our server offered another round of drinks. My wine glass sat empty while our server passed the table several times - not offering to ask of we wanted a refill. It wasn't terribly busy at that time either.

    We will return for the comfortable atmosphere, great service and delicious food. My husband and I celebrated Valentine's day at The Vault and enjoyed our dishes. He ordered the mixed seafood and I had the steelhead salmon which was cooked perfectly. The scallop appetizer was good but the calamari was average. We enjoyed a slice of cheesecake to share for dessert. Live music added to the cozy feel and the service is prompt and friendly. The cocktail and wine list is good and reasonably priced. This was not our first visit to this restaurant. Our family all enjoy this local favorite and will return as we always have a good experience and like the food.

    Having eaten at The Vault before I was looking forward to a return visit. Much to my disappointment the food experience was terrible. My wife had Coconut Curry Penne with prawns - we finally found a couple of prawns and the sauce was very scarce and light on flavor. I had a flat iron steak and the only redeeming quality was the garlic mashed! There are plenty of better choices - don’t get trapped at The Vault.
