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!

Most of the people in our party ordered the ribeye steak, and it was excellent. I also highly recommend the french onion soup. It was a little less salty than most that I have tried, and it had a touch of spice. The service was also very good.

We love the building and everything is beautiful. Our waiter was excellent and attentive.
Two of us ordered petit filet steaks which were outstanding. Two ordered the shrimp and grits which were also great. However, one of our guests ordered the ribeye steak and it was terrible - mostly grizzle. He could not eat it. We showed our waiter and gave him parts of the steak to take to chef. A lady from your staff came to table and was very rude - almost questioning our opinion of the steak. Wanting to defend it. She spoiled our evening. We were not credited with the cost of this part of the meal. No credit was given off the bill, which we thought was not right.

MyQwan (spelling?), our waiter, was AMAZING! The way he paid attention to detail was impressive.
The chef came by our table during dinner, which is always nice!
The food was unbelievable. We wanted to savor every bite.
Well worth every penny. Will return when we are back in town.

We enjoyed every element of our experience at Vault. The people, the drinks, the food, the ambiance... It was perfect.

This was our first time at The Vault. This place is great! Atmosphere is chill and cool but the staff is also really friendly and knowledgable, you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. Food is absolutely amazing, and for their prices it’s 100% worth it. We will definitely go back.

We had such a great experience at Vault that I’m pretty sure we would make a trip to Hot Springs again just to dine here! Our waiter was fantastic and surprised us with glasses of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. It’s a pretty dark restaurant but the menus were actually backlit which I’ve never seen before and very appreciated. Our waiter had great suggestions for drinks and dinner and they didn’t disappoint. We don’t typically dive into the rolls but holy cow they were incredible! The Elderflower Martini was great as well. For dinner I had the scallops and my husband had the rib chop - both fantastic. And we split the cheesecake with fresh berries for dessert. It was pricey but worth it!
