    Went to the Vault Sunday night for my birthday, as I am signed up for the free annual birthday meal. Was disappointed that the tuna was no longer on the menu, as that is always my favorite dish there! Started off sort of on the wrong foot from the start: no bread for the table,, and what was called a margarita was abysmal. Fake lime juice, tequila and soda water, with a salt rim, in a tall glass. Drank it anyways since I was so thirsty. I ordered the steak special for dinner, 7 oz strip with peppercorn demi. Was not disappointed in the steak, was cooked perfectly rare and they actually remembered to bring the horseradish, which many places forget, but couldn't believe that the green beans as a side still had all of the stems attached!

    The food is great but the selection is not too large. Love the chicken, salmon, and their steak. Their short ribs are their signature item and are delicious. Live music when we were there on a Friday. The atmosphere is relaxed, dim lighting and spacious comfortable chairs & tables.

  • not the same
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    We hadn't been for a while and it wasn't the same place. A couple of our favourite dishes were no longer on the menu and the ones we did choose were average at best. The service was ok but our drinks were empty for 10 minutes or so as we didn't see our server for a while. The place was half empty which I thought was unusual for 7:00 on a Friday night. You used to have to book well in advance for a table at that time, a sign that it wasn't the Vault I remember.

    We brought out of town guests to the Vault. We raved about the Ahi / Albacore Tuna only to find it was off the menu. Disappointed!!!!!! We still had a great dinner. Then raved about the best peanut butter pie ever...... to my disappointment is was not the same pie as I have had in the past. The service was great will be back however will definitely call ahead to check about the Tuna.

    Disappointed
    Dined on 8/13/2014
    We were very disappointed with the menu options available. Having been to this restaurant before, we were looking forward to an enjoyable dinner. However, the menu has now changed to serve mostly seafood, which in our case is not why we came to this restaurant. I ordered the ravioli which to my surprise came with cold asparagus on top. My husbands halibut was fresh but the seasonal vegetables were mushy. The lettuce wraps were served with very small pieces of lettuce - hard to create a wrap. The servers were nice, however we waited for almost an hour before getting any of our appetizers. Seriously, will be a long time before returning to this restaurant.

    Fantasy find in old cloverdale... We were looking for something other than the tired chain restaurants in the cloverdale/Langley area. From the outside it doesn't look like much but the inside is fun and eclectic. The staff was great. The food was fantastic "upscale comfort food". 2 cocktails to start, an appie, a salad, 2 drinks with dinner and 2 after dinner cocktails and our bill was only $110. The seafood pasta was the best I've had in along time and the chicken breast with mushroom was decadent home cooking.

    It was my first time at The Vault and I doubt I will be back. The decor is kitschy, but comfortable. The service was very attentive and the live music when it began was a nice level; still allowed for talking. But the food was a disappointment. I had checked the online Menu before going and had my heart set on seared Ahi tuna, of which there was none on the menu! The beef carpaccio starter was tasty. For the main I ordered the Cajun halibut and prawns. The spices were way too heavy for a fish- totally overpowered it, and the accompanying lemon-dill yogurt was so strong on the lemon that it was bitter. The peanut butter cake for desert was good, but nothing special. All in all - mediocre. There are better places to go for a nice meal

    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 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.
