    We had tickets to the final Masterworks concert by the Roanoke Symphony and decided to have an early dinner at The Vault after we walked from the Berglund Center Theatre. What a great experience! Service (Leah and Geoffrey) was top notch and the food was simply delightful. The Caesar salad was extraordinary, the Korean Bao bun exceptional, and pizza delightful (just finished the last pieces for lunch today!).... and the bread pudding (we had it to go) .... wow! Thanks. The Vault is truly a downtown gem!

    We loved our 26th wedding anniversary dinner at the VIP table in the actual bank vault. The food, cocktails and wine selection were unique and beautifully prepared. Our servers and the maitre d' were knowledgeable and friendly and made the unique experience so much fun.

    We had the best date night here! A Sunday evening made for a small crowd and very quick service. Sarah was our incredible waiter and we enjoyed a sampling of appetizers and drinks. Definitely a restaurant for special occasions since it is pretty expensive but the atmosphere and menu offerings are very unique! Highly recommend :)

    The food was delicious but the service was problematic. My husband’s salad was brought after the main course. The server had to take the main course back to “keep warm” while eating the salad. I had 2 appetizers as my meal. They were brought at the same time instead of the soup first then the other as my main meal. The evening turned out wonderfully once all was corrected. The chef was a delight to talk to.

    This is a pretty unusual setup for a restaurant. It’s in the lobby of a former bank from the grand old era — complete with marble floors, soaring Greek columns, and the remnants of former teller windows and manager’s offices. You might think that the noise level might be a problem in such a room, but the high, high ceilings seem to let the sound dissipate and conversation at the tables seems downright intimate. Tables are of various types, some coffee table height next to chairs and comfortable sofas, others at bar table height complete with barstools. We sat at one of the low tables, which I initially thought would be quite uncomfortable, but then decided quite the opposite as my wife and I ate dinner sitting close next to each other on the sofa, passing our dishes back and forth tapas style. The menu is very varied and interesting, once you figure out how to read it (appetizers, small plates and entrees are not clearly marked). Every dish we tried was excellent, including the Coquilles St Jacques (to my knowledge this is the only restaurant in Roanoke where you can get this classic French scallop dish), albondingos (Spanish meatballs), pasta with chicken and figs, and others. Desserts were good to outstanding; my wife’s pot de crème definitely fell into the latter category, and in fact may have been the best dessert I have ever tasted (and I have eaten in hundreds of fine restaurants on 5 continents). Dinner for two, including wine and desserts, came to $200 before tip. It’s on the high side for Roanoke, but very well worth it considering the quality of the food and overall experience. Several of our favorite restaurants in the Roanoke area have closed in recent years. I’m really happy to replace them on the list with The Vault.

    It’s a cool place. Renovated bank building. Food was mediocre. We shared a Caesar salad which was good. Got a charcuterie board which was fair. Blue cheese and fig jam were good a lot of sweet sides . It could have used olives and pickles and olive oil. The scallops entree was pretty flavorless. The scallops were rubbery and the potatoes were bland. The restaurant seems to be figuring out whether it wants to be a happy hour place with bar food or a fine dining experience.

    We visited The Vault with friends during Roanoke Restaurant Week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The menu provided a good selection to choose from and we enjoyed each dish. Desserts were delightful - and our server kindly packed them for us to bring home. The entire staff is most accommodating and efficient. The space is striking and they have made an excellent transition from the former bank building - maintaining much of the amazing marble - not to mention the actual vault. The regular menu is quite interesting and we are anxious to return and try more of their offerings.

    We had an amazing meal, and can not wait to go back. We were a group of 6, and we ordered vastly different meals. Our food came out at different times, and it was a little slower than I was expecting. I will say though, it was packed, so that probably contributed to those issues. Overall, it was a fantastic experience, and we absolutely be back. The ramen, steak, and shrimp dumplings all received rave reviews from the members of our party. Considering the amount of food and drinks we enjoyed, it was also very economical.

    We decided to begin Restaurant Week at The Vault. We reserved a table for two for 4:30pm. We then invited 2 friends to celebrate the birth of their first grandchild. Our friends could stay only for drinks. The Vault staff accommodated our requests by giving us the VIP vault room. The special menu for Restaurant Week was spectacular. The special cocktails were indeed special. Our friends ordered an appetizer. Just a great evening made great by the staff at The Vault.

    Wonderful service. Some missing items on both the food and drink menus, probably due to it being after a holiday weekend and not getting deliveries yet. Overall a very good experience.
