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

  • "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."

  • "could have had more vegetables. Food portions weren't as large as most restaurants today."

  • "Another very good experience at the Vault. Good food as always and service is just right, attentive but not overbearing."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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:-)"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "We had a great time at The Vault. The food was amazing, especiay the calamari and chocolate/peanut butter pie. "

  • "Turning a bank vault into a restaurant is a unique idea. The place is very interesting but not particularly intimate. The staff is efficient and pleasant. The food was excellent. "
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "Food not as good as usual - service not either. But the restaurant was very busy. We will be back."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Great décor and atmosphere. Service was ok but not great, the waitress forgot our wine order and didn't come back for over 10 minutes. I ordered the roast lamb. The lamb was excellent but the potatoes were stale and hard and looked like they had been sitting out for a few hours. The beans were bland. It's a good restaurant but management needs to step up to make it the great restaurant it has the potential to be."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Seating is a little tight. We were seated at a table with an open screened divider, with a table right there. It was like both tables were together.The conversation at the other table is like it is part of your conversation. more space is needed between tables. Better training on serving and table set up. it is more a real casual restaurant, than what I would like in our neighbourhood, which is a little nicer upper class type place. It is not like the prices are low brow. "
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "This is one of the best bets in Surrey to not only have a great meal but to be in a place that you feel so welcomed by staff."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Took out of town guest for eastern Canada and the Southern US, and they loved it."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Complimentary bread is always fresh, hot & delicious. The Braised Beef is excellent - never been disappointed with this dish. The tuna was prepared wonderfully. The side dish of steamed coconut rice is much improved and goes much better with the tuna than the rice pilaf that has been served in the past. Accompanying veggies were very nicely done. Portion sizes are generous."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "The dinner was good. The appy, pan bread, was less than satisfactory. The beer was warm but our server did try to remedy the problem. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Service was not rushed, nice gap between applies and main course. Good wine selection. Food was tasty, two of our party had steaks which were done perfectly, the special of the night was the lobster ravioli enjoyed by one of our party who said it was perfectly flavoured. Also enjoyed the pesto flatbread, very tasty. "

  • "The vault is my birthday place and special occasion place. The food is excellent and the staff friendly. The music is good and they have awesome coupons for 16$ that give great incentive for regulars to come back for more than special occasions. Best dry ribs - to my mind- in all if the Surrey and Langley areas. Same with the Cream Brule dessert. Overall a great place to go - specially for adults. The first seating at 5:00 is quieter so conversation is easier. Bon Apetite!"
