The service was fantastic, it was my wife’s bday and they had written a card for her which was a special touch. The food was good as well. A little pricey tho

I went here for my birthday with a small group of friends. It was wonderful! Each staff member wished me happy birthday and they even brought out a little dessert and candle. All of the food and drinks were delicious. The waiter even had a few suggestions to help us choose. The space was very covid friendly and they dressed it up very nicely lights. There was also plenty of heaters, it was a cold day in the city and no one had a single complaint. Thank you all for making my day special. :)

I had high hopes, but ultimately I was a disappointed with my experience. I made a reservation for 2:00pm, but I wasn’t notified that the kitchen closes at 2:30. My guests and I had to rush to place our orders, and this restriction also made it hard to place any additional orders later on. I was then served horrible cold instant coffee. The food was decent, but for the price I certainly expected better. Overall, it felt like a cheap, rushed experience and I probably won’t make an effort to go back.

Wanted to try a restaurant for SF Restaurant week so we made a reservation for Sunday afternoon. When we got there it was during brunch time so we didn’t actually eat the curated sfrw menu but what we ordered was fabulous! Our waiter was amazing, the perfect amount of attentive, gave us perfect advice on what we were ordering, and chatted with us about our feedback. We got the bill and it was a steal for such an amazing meal.

We came here during restaurant week with our two kids. They kitchen made a pasta dish with butter and parmesan for the kids which they adored. And my husband and I both enjoyed the 3 course pre-fixe meal. We each had a cocktail which were very good. The "glasses" were all plastic. And I pointed out some lipstick on my glass, and the waiter said the plastic was just smudged and damaged due to being put through the dishwasher. But this smudge was pink, so I was a little annoyed by that response. The 3 shareables were just ok. The main dishes were delicious, and we both thoroughly enjoyed our desserts. I would recommend due to fantastic service, kid-friendly, main dishes, and ambience.

Overall we had a great time and good meal at the vault. The outdoor seating was warm and cozy, with pretty lights and flowers. We started with great cocktails. We loved our appetizers: oysters, Parker house rolls, the burrada, and asparagus. Only downside was we were a little disappointed with a few entrees, which were the fish, duck, and the scallops entrees. They were just ok and some things were super bland while others were over salted. The one entree we all loved was the burger. It was probably one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. Dessert and drinks were also great. Service was perfect.

Having had one of the best meals of my life at The Vault around Christmas of 2018, I was looking forward to getting back after getting fully vaccinated. I was disappointed for two reasons. First, the music was unnecessary and too loud. It felt like I was in a disco. Secondly, when I ordered the main course (I was there for Restaurant Week) on the Restaurant Week menu, a burger, I volunteered that I wanted it medium and was told something about the chef does it one way. I assumed, since my last meal there had been so superb, that I'd trust the chef. My burger was served luke warm and too rare for me. I assume this is not the same chef and it was a very different experience.

My husband and I have been to the Vault on the day it had opened first, and we went back many times for excellent service, delicious food and great ambiance.
I'm not sure what happened last Wednesday but the service was ok, the food was a pass but not that great. It was the first day of their week so maybe it wasn't their best day but the crepes were burnt and cold, the kombucha served was expired and the burgers took an unusually long time to arrive. The cocktail I had tasted like there is no alcohol in it so it felt like I was paying $14 for juice with a lot of ice.
As I mentioned, we've been many times and will absolutely go back, but last Wednesday was a bit disappointing..

We were on time for our reservation, but had to wait for 15 to 20 minutes to be seated. The ambiance is nice and festive with pretty lights.

The main dish food of Risotto was so salty that we couldn't taste the actual food. If you have too much salt, it covers up the other flavors. Please let the Chefs know of way too much salt. The asparagus with the sauce was delicious and our favorite. The steak was done perfectly of medium rare and with good buttery flavors.

I felt for the staff running up and down the stairs from the kitchen and concerned if the food was cold, but it was a fine temperature due to the covers on the plates. The staff were very friendly, warm, and energetic! Thank you so much for a wonderful date night with my Boyfriend!

The waitor was extremely friendly and polite, good service I have to admit.

Cocktails were completely watered down and I asked for a neat mezcal instead, and it tasted nothing like mezcal and just overall cheap tasting. The duck was really good although I would expect more even cuts for the price. The aged beef tasted alright. We

2% for propane... ridiculous. Build it into the food price.

The Propane used to keep the place warm has nothing to do with the amount of food or drinks I get. Time based, not service based.

Thanks.

Fun, casual place with excellent food. Eclectic atmosphere, great service and delicious beignets (as starters). Food proportion was "just right" - we felt pampered, "safe" (w/ Covid protocols) and spoiled. I highly recommend this place for all parties large and small - and for any occasion!

First dining experience together in 14 months and it couldn’t have been better. We felt very safely spaced from other patrons, the heat lamps were just perfect. Park i g couldn’t have been easier!! And of course, as you expect from the Hi Neighbor Group: the food and service were outstanding!
