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.

    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.

    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.
