We had a great experience at the Vault! It was romantic and delicious and the staff was extremely solicitous. Food was superb and Jennifer was a wonderful waitress and very knowledgeable about the selections on the menu. Highly recommend this restaurant!!!

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.

In general, everything was very good. Cesar salad was disappointing compared to what they use to have. Prices are rather high.

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.

The restaurant made us feel very comfortable in the midst of the epidemic. We came for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed! Our waitress(Julia, I think) was very nice and gave the perfect amount of service. The food was phenomenal - we had grilled oysters, ribeye, petite filet, and chocolate marquise cake. We loved the atmosphere, wine, and details!

As the first restaurant that we have visited since the pandemic began, we were a bit apprehensive on what to expect. However, not only did the staff take measures to ensure the health and week-being of their guests and staff, but the entire experience was extraordinary. The service was impeccable and the meal was exquisite. Our waiter and the chef took great pain to accommodate my food allergies without compromising on the taste of each dish. Thanks to everyone at Vault for such a wonderful dining experience.

Our anniversary dinner could not have been any better. The salads, the drinks, the Waygu steaks, the sides, even dessert. I would say, though, if you are looking for a reservation, CALL THE RESTAURANT. Open Table showed only 3 times available (4:30, 5:00 and 8:30). I chose 5 and we were literally one of 5 seated tables in the whole place. There is no reason we shouldn't have been able to reserve a better "dinner" time.

We decided to celebrate our 39th anniversary at the Vault while visiting Hot Springs. Every aspect of our experience was nothing short of amazing. The food was some of the best we’d ever eaten. The atmosphere was classy and beautiful! Last but not least, our waitress, Jennifer was top notch and professional! We will be back, if we’re lucky! 🍀

Dinner at Vault last night was amazing! The atmosphere was intimate, sophisticated and super cool. The service was excellent. Everyone we came in contact with was nice, friendly and helpful. The FOOD was incredible. The menu had lots of our favorites but they were made new and unique but weren’t so different you didn’t recognize them. It was really refreshing. Both my husband and I left saying we would go back again for sure! If you are in the Hot Springs area and looking for a fine dinning experience, the Vault is a must!

We went for a Girls Weekend Trip... both our 1st time there. We went off the recommendation of a friend who had dined there last year. We were both amazed at not only the food but the service (due to CV-19) the wait staff was amazing even though having to wear mask and social distancing. The kitchen staff sent out our appetizer to late it arrived after the meal, the manger came over explained the mistake and gave us the most wonderful dessert Baked Alaska and it was over the top! We are already making plans to go back this month.
