Amazing dinner! Helpful and attentive staff. It might be the first time a restaurant has really paid attention to the note on the reservation that I do not eat sugar or flour, and the chef came out to help me find the best combination and adjustments.

We had the best waitperson. She was attentive but not overbearing. We will ask for her when return for our next dining experience. This is the best restaurant in Hot Springs.. The food is always delicious.

First time to visit the Vault and my overall experience was top notch! The food was like a delicatessen and enjoyed every thing. The chef Andrew Disney came out to greet the table most impressive. Took a tour of the new upcoming remodeling that will bring Hot Springs something they have never experienced. 5 stars overall I will definitely be back! The waiter Mitchell was phenomenal! Thank you

My wife had the shrimp and grits whi h were really good. I had the ribeye which was very disappointing. It was grisly and tough. I expected more. Maybe it was a bad night. So we may give it another try on our next trip here.

I gave this place a rave review a few years ago. I went a year ago & it wasn't as good. But I was there last night & it was just not good at all. The rolls are amazing but thats about it. The steak had a demi glaze or sauce that made a perfectly cooked steak taste like salty garbage. The seasonal veg of zucchini & squash was beyond bland. The mashed potatoes tasted of either runbed sage or poultry seasoning - I couldn't tell which. But it was overbearing and gross. The brussels sprouts were good at first but there was a spicy something on them which over-powered them. We did not finish our food. $156.00 for 2 plates of food we didn't eat. Beyond disappointed.

My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary at The Vault last night. Our server, Rebecca, went above and beyond all expectations. She even showed us the special room where Al Capone kept his money! The appetizers were amazing and the New Zealand Lamb Rack and Snake River Berkshire Rib Chop were unbeatable. Complimentary champagne made this meal one we will never forget!

we make an annual visit when we got to Hot Springs and i think they have finally figured out who they want to be. They've streamlined their menu and kept it focused on what they do best (the sushi was good, but if felt like they were trying to do too much). Service was great and the chef was clearly on point this round. The gazpacho was surprisingly the stand-out dish of the evening, but really everything was great. We ordered way too much and ended up taking home the rest. I wish they had let us box our own stuff, but that's just a personal preference. Great time!
