Standing out like a fresh tattoo on a burly forearm, The Vault Restaurant serves mouth-watering martinis, delicious wines and fabulous food. Once inside, you will be greeted by an eclectic, lively room, a diverse menu and tantalizing cocktails, including “the best Caesar in town.” First built in 1948, The Vault retains many of its original features, including the concrete bank vault.

Outside the private vault, guests are seated in the restaurant’s lounge or dining room, surrounded by an eclectic décor, including bicycle frames, ornate mirrors and a tiki lounge! The funky style combined with live jazz or blues music and you’ve got yourself a hip and quirky restaurant, with a cool, laissez-faire vibe. The Vault’s diverse menu features Northwest cuisine, offering dishes that are simple, yet rich in flavour.

The ambiance, friendliness of staff, live music was all so great! My flat iron steak not so much, not very tender. They also got my order wrong, but did make up for it by bringing an extra large serving of the vegetables I had originally asked for. I would go back, but not gamble on a steak. A

Vault restuarant is a great place to go for great food and service. Drinks (martini's) are also well made with decent variety. This restaurant is very busy, so it does get noisy, but it's still a nice experience and serving staff work hard and provide great service. There is a nice cross section of food from fish and seafood, to steak, lamb, chicken along with pasta. Something for everyone. We had the calimari and coconut prawn appies, and they were both excellent-the coconut prawns really tasty.

Excellent food and service. There was a large party there at the same time as me and my fiancé. Our meal was going to take a little bit longer than usual. We totally understood, and it really wasn’t much longer. Besides we were on a date, we wanted to enjoy our time together. What I appreciated was that our sever informed us of this. Rather than let us think we may have been forgotten, he let us know what was going on and that goes a long way for me. When the meal came, it was delicious as always. The staff is very attentive and friendly!

Love coming to the vault, food is always consistently great and service is typically quite the match. Came for new years with some friends was a little dissapointed in no entertainment, but the food was great.

I dine at the Vault several times a year. My favourite things are the caesar salad and the rack of lamb. This time however both my friend and I thought the salad had way too much anchovy and both of our rack of lamb were under cooked to the point where I couldn't eat much of it. Very disappointing.

Food was delicious. Our server was excellent. The decor is great. It was just way too loud to the point where we couldn't carry on a conversation so we left.

We were greeted by a friendly waiter and were served promptly. Food service was exceptional. Within 15 minutes of being seated, our entrees arrived and were very good. We were offered a second helping of bread and the waiter gave input into the items on the menu. A very good experience overall.

Took our staff of 6 here for a pre-Christmas lunch. Everything was excellent - service and food! None of them had been to The Vault before, and everyone ordered something different. The dishes came out perfect and we were all so impressed with everything from start to finish. Thanks for an enjoyable experience!!

Best "high-end" restaurant south of the Fraser River. Buy a $100 gift card at Costco for $80 which gives you a $20 discount - you can't go wrong!

Yes I would recommend but not for a special occasion over the holidays. One year we went to celebrate our anniversary on Dec 27 and was very disappointed as our table for two was set up in an aisle towards the back of the restaurant and the tables were crammed in around us. No privacy for conversation.

Really terrible!
Ordered scallops and prawns salad.
Got one scallop and 5 prawns. All cold. The salad was fennel all clumped together in a pile.
With one lump of cheese. Dressing tasteless. Lots of lettuce. Left most of it, worst meal I have had. How do you screw up salad?
The other two dinners flank steak and seafood penne were also cold.
We ordered coffee, girl said it was just brewed, it too was cold and tasted like the grounds were used for the forth time.
Calamari was good.
Probably will never be back. Had heard don’t go there. Too expensive and not good.

Small intimate place, great for any occasions, however the space is tight in between tables. Loved the live acoustic music. Would definitely go back.
