    Delicious Vault Frites for appetizers. Enough for 3 or 4. Mains: vegan tofu beautiful, prefect prepared and plated. Beef bolognese absolutely fantastic and huge. Petit filet excellent but plating was not good. Small piece of meat on a huge platter. No garnish, nothing. Side served in separate dish. Desserts very good. Excellent service and ambiance. Love the lighted menus. Reasonable wine by the glass which were excellent!

    Food was good. Service has been better it seems the people serving the food may not know there's more to it than asking is the food good. We were asked if food was ok before we ever had a chance to taste. After every course. When eating at upper end restaurant the courses should come out promptly. When servers come out, they should know who is getting what. I came in I was asked can I help you. Yes I have a reservation. What's your name? Henderson. Ok. What's your name? Henderson. Ok Just a minute. Your names Henderson? Yes. The problem may be the staff has never been to a nice place to eat and experienced first rate service. Maybe I'm being picky, but I don't like someone picking up my water glass in the palm of their hand filling it then slamming it down on the table in front of me. I have visited multiple times. I always leave a $100.00 tip. I only left a $50 dollar tip which was 22%.

    Server and atmosphere were great. The food on the other hand was very disappointing. We had the artichoke’s for appetizers, different but good. Husband had the ribeye steak, which was pretty much unseasoned and a little dry, even though is was cooked medium rare. I had the scallops with mushroom risotto. Flavor was ok, but the entire dish was so mushy, no textural differences. Reminded me of a very fancy baby food. The bread pudding we had for dessert was the best part of the meal. Very delicious. Fun experience, but the food definitely wasn’t worth it. Definitely not worth $211 for 2 people.

    We celebrated my husbands 60th birthday at The Vault this evening, our first time there, and what a marvelous meal we had! The restaurant itself is warm and inviting, such a lovely old building and the dining and bar areas have very eclectic decor, very comfy. Danielle our server was wonderful, very knowledgeable and attentive, as were the rest of the staff there, our glasses were never empty and never a crumb was left on our table cloth. The food was amazing, delicious rich French onion soup, petit filet of steak, a gargantuan and oh so tasty porch chop, plus all the sides were fabulous too. The added treat of a birthday chocolate mousse dessert was a lovely surprise too. Attention to detail is everything! We will most certainly be back.

    We had a delicious meal (the best I've had in a long time), the restaurant had great ambience with nice seating, table setting, and lighting. The service from Mitchell was excellent, he knew all about the food, how it was prepared, and he made some great recommendations. He also had some very nice suggestions for cocktails and other beverages that we might enjoy. A great night out and Vault will definitely be a place we will return to in Hot Springs. In our five days there it was by far the best meal we had.

    As soon as you walk in the door the service and ambiance are amazing. This continued at the table with the lighted menus and drink presentations. Even if you don’t drink order the Smoked Old Fashioned, just for the presentation. The food itself was amazing, we could have made ourselves sick on the rolls alone. We got a cheese plate appetizer and Chinese chili, and we each got steak with a topper and 1 side. The steaks were cooked to perfection and we were able to share the sides they were so large. I definitely recommend Vault.

    My party of six was very pleased with our dining experience from starting to finish. Our main wait person, Evan, was very attentive and personable without being intrusive. The balance of the staff was good at their jobs. My only criticism is that the greens in their Thai salad were plain and boring. The spinich leaves had excessive and tough stalk. The beef within the salad was very tasty!

    The Vault is an absolute fantastic restaurant. As someone with Celiac Disease it’s not often that I can browse the entire menu. The chef can make almost anything on the menu gluten free! I was able to enjoy the baked Brie with gluten free bread and a delicious chicken entree. A MUST stop for a fine dining experience in Hot Springs!
