Welcome to Vault 164, located in the heart of downtown San Mateo. Set in the old Crocker Bank on the corner of 2nd and B, the décor uses many of the building"s antique vault pieces sprinkled throughout the dining room and bar. We feature an eclectic and contemporary American cuisine. Stop by and enjoy our bourbon and maple glazed pork chop, served on sweet potato mash, or a savory Caramelized Onion, Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Cambozola Cheese Flatbread. We offer a wide range of aged steaks and whole roasted chicken, fresh pasta, and unique salads. Our bar is great place to meet friends or watch a game, and it features a variety of classic and new cocktails, handmade to perfection, a large selection of beers on tap, and over 20 wines by the glass.

Asked for steak to be medium and it was served dry and over well done. Waiter was really nice and took it right back, I was then served rare steak and did not eat it, the fries were gross they tasted as if they were fried in old oil and even fried twice. Was with a group of friends and did not want to appear unhappy, so I just paid for a meal that I did not eat.

The place was cold and un inviting, there were several large groups so it was extremely loud, and no one came to take drink order or welcome us for at least 15 mins. It was my sons bday and I had wanted it to be special, I had to remind them to bring a dessert with a candle and we order fries, and never got them. The food was good though, but not worth returning for.

The food here is excellent. For our fairly large group of 10, conversation was almost impossible; so loud in there. We needed to shout, to be understood by family sitting directly across the table. This would be a nice dining experience, with reasonable sound levels...

I had mentioned we were coming for my boyfriend’s birthday and asked if they could do something special, since we go often and nothing was done. Oh well
