Server (Mitchell) was absolutely fantastic and better than even the Totinos pizzas we usually feast on.

Food and ambience is perfect for an adult night out! Everything was very calm and not noisy at all, the drinks and food were great. This is not a place to take your kids, but it is a GREAT place to take your spouse or significant other for a romantic evening out. (The Vault Roll and the lemon blueberry creme brûlée did NOT disappoint!)

This restaurant has amazing food and service. Great selections on food from seafood to steaks with unique pairings and flavors. The waitstaff is informative and attentive, offering to basically put together any of the entrees/sides cooked to our specifications. The atmosphere is quiet, elegant and conducive to a very relaxed dinner. We enjoyed our steaks, our wine, and the quality was unsurpassed. One of our very favorite of all times.

We enjoyed the entire experience we had at Vault. Our waitress was great and made sure we always had everything we need. She even gave us seconds on the bread because we complimented how good they were! Food was amazing. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious. We will definitely recommend and come back!!

Our first visit since COVID. It was wonderful as always. Their French Onion Soup is our favorite. We each had the Filet, as well as the Jordan Cabernet wine. One of the managers, Scott, greeted us upon our return. They have worked hard to sanitize everything, and we felt completely safe with temperature checks and social distancing in place. Looking forward to a birthday celebration in October. We highly recommend the Chocolate Creme Brûlée.

Service was lacking based on the caliber of restaurant they are striving to be. The server didn’t know the menu and had no clue which wines were served by the glass. The calamari was average. Soups were average. We split the elk and they didn’t bother to tell us that there was an $8 up charge to split the entree. We waited forever for the check and then got the wrong one. When all this was brought to the managers attention, he didn’t seem to care. We would not recommend this restaurant to fellow travelers.

They were out of oysters, which was why I choose the Vault. We ordered shrimp cocktail for appetizer which was way to spicy for me, I think it had sliced jalapeños in it...two gentlemen at our table ordered ribeyes which seemed to have too much membrane...drinks were awesome as always and no Baked Alaska which was online dessert menu and our guest was looking forward too. I would say it was an ok dinner but 501 Prime has it beat in my book for the price

The ambience of this restaurant is nice and the concept unique. They still have some kinks to work out however. The service is not that of what one expects when paying hundreds of dollars for dinner of two. Our appetizer took 50mins to arrive and was literally dropped on the table by the server. Of the two appetizers we had, the Wagyu meatballs were delicious but the tomatoes in the Caprese salad were not ripe. We ordered Aperol Spritzers which arrived with Aperol and Soda Water in the glass and no Prosecco. It was some time before we saw our server again from the time we ordered our appetizers and we had to continue to pour our own wine throughout the evening. The Wagyu Filet and Wagyu Rib Eye steak were delicious and cooked perfectly. For the price of the meal we expected better service and attention by the server as well as a better overall experience.

We’ve gone twice. The first time was 5 stars, this time wasn’t as breathtaking. Their options weren’t as robust as I remembered. Nothing on the menu jumped out at me as a must have. Still, it has a great atmosphere, and the food is better than average. When I pay higher prices I just expect consistency. Rolls didn’t have butter/honey/truffles on first batch, second were great. Drinks were inconstant. Steak was a bit charred for my liking (ordered rare) they sent out Pittsburgh style rare steak, I’d prefer normally cooked rare steak. Wife enjoyed hers much more than me, and would have given 5 stars. I’d give 3, so I averaged to 4.

Great very professionally service
Highly recommend steak and caesar salad. The dressing is amazing with an unusual surprise. We actually shared one of the smallest steaks that came with potatoes and broccoli so we could try sushi and extra side. I don’t recommend sautéed mushrooms. Glad we shared! Plenty to eat.
