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. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We have always enjoyed the vault. The food is consistently excellent"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I brought my husband to The Vault to celebrate his birthday. We have been to The Vault many times before. The food that we ordered was served lukewarm bordering on cold. My husband and I won't be returning."

  • "We are big fans of the Vault usually. We go there for many special occasions as well as the sister company the Wag in whiterock. Our last visit was a big let down. The menu has changed and is not as good as it use to be. My husband ordered steak medium and it was raw in the middle medium on the outside leaving the middle unedible and wasted. The halibut was way under cooked and jelly like textured. It was to be panko crusted and the crust was not crispy. The butter sauce lacking. The halibut should be opaque and flaky when cooked to perfection unlike the Vaults halibut which was grayish and jelly like more resembled a mushy piece of cod. To be fair they did comp the fish but a filet of fish had a higher standard than that piece of fish!"

  • "We decided to have a break from household chores and go to our local favourite - the Vault. Our server, Stass was great. The food was the same for my husband as he always has the Short rib dinner - very good, but predictable. A change of veggies would be a good thing. My dinner was the Seafood Penne - usually good but this one was very dry, not enough sauce and dried out "prawns" or just shrimp I think. And the fish had a distinct odor - not a good one. Anyway it was better than cooking my own meal. And why do they always try to shove you way in the back of the room when there are plenty of tables up front? AND, we had a reservation. We will continue to go to the Vault, but would love to see a few changes. Love the coupons."

  • " We frequent this establishment and are never disappointed. The steaks were amazing. The beef ribs were fork tender. The coconut curry prawns are always a favourite.....And ...of course, it is essential to finish with peanut butter pie."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Our first time, it was our anniversary. A bit pricey, but would recommend to family and friends, with the caveat that it's a bit pricey."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We've been to the Vault many times for dinner and our meals have always been very good. This time was no exception. Make sure you have enough room for dessert as the chocolate peanut butter pie is to die for."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We recently moved to the area and asked Dan, our friend, for a recommend a restaurant to celebrate our son's 25th birthday. He immediately suggested The Vault where he and his family go for family occasions, he meets his buddies there and where his wife & he have date nights. Our first visit (definitely not the last). The food is perfect, service is attentive, not obtrusive and the eclectic collection of artifacts was entertaining."

  • "As a group there was not one person who was not impressed with bothe service and the food."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I love the Vault and WAG but am getting tired of the menu. It has been the same for the past 3 plus years. The ravioli special was tasteless and overly salty. The scallop and prawn salad was not overly exciting."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The Vault never fails us, we always request a particular table and they always accommodate us."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The best food I've tasted in a long time. I was absolutely blown away! Will definitely be coming here every week :)"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Great food and service as always. Awesome live music. Table behind us was a large party that didn't mind bumping in to out table, knocking things over, so if we come back ill likely request a table against the wall."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "could have had more vegetables. Food portions weren't as large as most restaurants today."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We loved our evening. The food was amazing, our server was very attentive as well as personable and though the restaurant was busy, it was not noisy - we could hear ourselves think. We highly recommend The Vault and will be back."

  • "I have visited this restraurant twice for lunch with a very special group of ladies and the food has always been really tasty, the service perfect, a great location and very nice decor! I look forward to my next visit! Thank you!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Can't do anything about the coziness with your neighbours due to the physical size of the space-- BUT really don't like "sharing" their social plans or problems at work-this is especially at the "middle tables" where just some grating separates you. Have to remember next time to request a table not in this location! The surf/turf special was excellent as was the halibut-a little scarce on the veggies though-2 slices of zuccini and a baby carrot:-)"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We have gone to The Vault for years but the last few times it just has not been what it used to be and that may be reflected on the restaurant being as slow as we had ever seen it on a Tuesday night. We ordered our wine and dinner, the wine came along with the bread which was not totally fresh and immediatly after our dinner. I don't know that 5 minutes had passed from the time we ordered until the meal arrived which was way too quick and did not give us a dining experience but rather a drive through experience. My husband hat the Shortribs which were very good as always and I ventured to have the Kaluah Prawns and I was very disappointed as the menu says 'Tiger' prawns well they were the small prawns so nothing fantastic for the price."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "My guest is a picky eater ( no seafood) but she raved about the short ribs and I enjoyed the tiger prawns but found the rice too bland. The service was friendly and attentive, the food was fresh-tasting and attractively served."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The service was great. Friendly and fun staff. We enjoyed our food, nice presentation and very tasty."

  • "A hidden gem in the heart of Cloverdale. Great food followed by amazing service. My wife and i experienced a nice romantic dinner that left us both satisfied, will be visiting again soon."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We have been to the Vault on several occasions and they never fail to impress. The food is always great and they are in a good location. Free parking is a bonus. The servers are always polity and helpful. We were a party of 4 and we note that it is a popular location for groups. We would recommend the Vault."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I have dined at the Vault and WAG for many years and have enjoyed every dining experience so far. Recently there has been a menu change to anything with "Salmon". Due to whatever reason, they are now using Steelhead Trout, a cousin of Salmon as part of their salmon dishes. Steelhead tastes nothing like salmon and it never will. It tastes like trout does, kind of dirty, something found in lakes not oceans. This will not stop me from going to these restaurants but I will be making different menu choices in the future."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Excellent food and ambience. The curry prawn penne was amazing! Service was friendly and efficient. An excellent choice for a few girlfriends to get together on a Friday night, we had a great evening! Good live music too, not too loud that we couldn't hear each other, and loud enough that we could enjoy :) "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Our meals were excellent - well prepared and presented - cooked to perfection. The ambience is very eclectic - a great mixture of things. We found it to be very noisy, which might discourage us from going back regularly"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Steak was on special so you would expect them to know how to cook it. Ordered it medium rare. Came slightly seared on the outside. Completely cold and raw inside. I could not even eat it. Very disappointed considering our visit was $100 for 2 of us "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "I've been going to the Vault regularly to meet friends for two years. The last two visits were a big disappointment as far as the food goes. Used to be awesome, now almost revolting. Do not have the Lettuce wraps. Looks like canned cat food with bottled Asian sauce on it. Very small portion for $12. Last time I had chicken and it was a very small portion and totally dried out. I'm not sure what has happened to this shining star of Cloverdale???"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "This was our first visit to this restaurant . We were very happy with the friendly staff that met us at the door when we arrived. Our waitress was very pleasant and efficient. The food was great. If we had a complaint it was that the tables are too close together. We had one right next to the stage which made it very loud, so you wouldn't be able to carry on a conversation, while the entertainment was on.It was also one with a screen in between our table and the next one. Much too close no privacy for either diners."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Seafood grill was very delicious. Small portion. I usually have a hard time finishing a meal completely, yet was still hungry until dessert. Tables are way too close together. & the dude next to our table wouldnt shut up!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "This is the restaurant where we usually celebrate occasions...menu is varied and meals always meet our expectations. The servers are efficient and always charming."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Great experience and glad for it! We came back to the Vault to give it another chance after a disappointing dinner here a month earlier. Thankfully the bad experience was just a glitch and it is back to its normal quality of food and service ! You have no competition in Cloverdale for a nice dinner."

  • "We enjoyed the Vault for our Birthday celebration. The atmosphere is interesting and fun. The Staff are friendly and helpful. We have eaten here a few times and each time had good service and great food. This time we have enjoyed the ribs, and seafood platter. Thank You."

  • "The vault restaurant is a gem in the heart of Cloverdale, awesome food, drinks and great staff. The service was timely, I didn't have to wait for anything or try to flag anyone down, but they weren't intrusive either. The currie prawn penne is really good, but more sauce would be nice, especially with the warm fresh bread! Thank you."
