It’s very important to set a reservation! Especially for the weekends. Everything from the appetizer to the dessert was wonderful. Service was wonderful as well!

Was a great experience only down thing was my fiancé’s steak was a little undercooked when we had asked for medium. The waitress definitely took care of us and offered to cook it right.

This was our second time at the Vault 244. The food and overall experience were both excellent. Service was on the slow side, with probably 30 minutes between the first course and the main course. We will definitely return.

I made a reservation using OpenTable for 7pm. Upon arrival and check in, the hostess told us the table reserved for our party of 4 had been changed to only accommodate 2 people. She would have to seat us at another table. After waiting outside for over 20 minutes, I checked on our reservation. I was told they were doing their best but didn’t want to “displace” the 7:30 reservations. I explained that we were being displaced ourselves considering we had a 7pm reservation. We were finally seated after 7:30. The restaurant was kind enough to comp our first round of drinks and our dessert. The food was amazing and our server did a nice job.

Due to COVID we will only eat outside at restaurants. We had no problems and felt comfortable at all times. Tables were well spaced apart...much further than required. We will definitely dine outside with them again!

We were doing some business in Lebanon and wanted to have an early dinner. I did a Google search to find a good place to dine. Our expectations were more than met. The food was excellent. The service charming and considerate. The space was lovely. We were quite pleased with everything and would highly recommend this establishment to all..

The food was good........service poor in that it took 2 hours for food to arrive.
Unacceptable even in the time of Covid when kitchen staff might be cut back.
When food arrived some members of the party had to just get a to go box, pack
it up and leave. Others who were able to stay ate fast and left.

I always recommend Vault 244. I like the menu, the ambiance and the servers. I requested an outdoor table but due to smoke they moved us indoor easily. They are my favorite! I wish they were open for lunch.

Very much enjoyed our evening out, service done well, food was cooked as requested, ribeye medium, mushroom Risotto was great thin asparagus nicely roasted. Service was attentive and not intrusive at all. Have been here many times and for the most part very good food can get a little too artsy on presentation at times stacking, service 4, ambience 3 stars due to COVID Not Vaults fault normally 4, very good and would recommend. cb

The food was fine as usual. However, we ordered Cava and wine, and both pours were only 1/3 of the glass. Very small. The waitress poured them, not the bartender. I will never order wine there again. If I wanted 4 sips of wine I will go wine tasting.

Also, once our waitress realized we were not ordering more wine our service declined.

It was date night for our 44th anniversary. Dover sole plate was outstanding. Flat iron steak plate was good. Beer and wine were excellent. Cream boule was to die for. Outstanding service. Did not have to wait at all. Will definitely go back again.

The drinks and atmosphere outside are great during the summer. The pork chops were amazing but unfortunately the chicken tostada didn't have much taste, it was just spicey. The flat iron steak was my first choice but they were all out. Our waiter was very attentive and polite. We will be back to try some other items on the menu.

The service was extremely slow, even with less tables due to COVID spacing regulations. The food was good, my steak wasnt cooked the way I requested and the gnocchi was cold by the time it arrived. The giant cookie was the highlight of the meal for me. Very expensive as well, especially considering things werent cooked to order and were cold! Overall, I did enjoy it and thought the flavors were good, but there are definitely ways that it could be improved.

Love the outdoor ambiance and the service was excellent. Would be really great if we knew the chef was prioritizing local ingredients. For example, the House Salad greens could easily come from a local grower but I suspect that they don't.
