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.

Food was mostly good for dinner, I had the rack of lamb for $32 but was disappointed there were only 4 ribs on there. The reduced sauce was excellent, some of the best seasoning I've had. On the other hand, some of the asparagus had too much fiber and were inedible, which was a shame and unacceptable for a $32 plate of too little lamb.

Service left much to be desired, although I believe they were understaffed that night. Water was generally not refilled unless I waved down a waitress to ask for it. We were not offered bread at the beginning, and had to ask for it. Also when I complained about the asparagus the waitress apologized but didn't do anything else to redress it.

This restaurant has potential, and it's possible it was just an off night at a good restaurant. For me at least though, it was not worth the drive.

Our dinners were absolutely delicious!!!! Kept thinking about it for days after, we will be back.
Portions could be a bit bigger and also it was a little on the loud side, but nothing you can do about that people are just having fun. Kinda hard for my honey and I to talk on our date night.
Overall 10/10

Very noisy. Staff tried to seat us in a quieter area which was appreciated, even though it was hardly quiet. Server was attentive and brought our beverage quickly. We shared the tomato mussels which were delicious. My wife ordered the halibut which she said was delicious as well. I ordered the lamb shank which did not have much flavor.
Overall I would say this place is pricey for value received. And as an older couple the ambience is not to our liking. Unlikely to return.

We go to the Vault but have noticed the last few time that the quality of the food and service isn’t what it once was. Our server was unfamiliar with the menu, the evenings specials and the wine list. I ordered the seafood penne. It was flavourless and a disappointment. My husband ordered the halibut special. He said it was good but not exceptional. Overall the entire meat and evening was just very average.

We have been to the vault many times for dinners. This was the first time that my husband and were disappointed in our meal. They have changed the spices on the dishes that we usually have. There was nothing wrong with the original dishes and I do not know why they made the change.

We’ve been 3 times, had 3 different entrees and all have been excellent.
The staff are professional, with the perfect amount of personal touch that makes the dinner seem special.
(I am irritated by overly friendly /buddy-buddy serving staff.)
I highly recommend the Vault for an amazing dinner...a real treat!!

The food was pretty good, and the servers were very nice. We had a beautiful table by the window. However, the second we were done/almost done our plates, servers would be there to take them away, and if we said no thanks, someone else would come in less than a minute. It would have been nice to enjoy the bread (and have a knife to spread butter) and chat. If another group needed our table after it would have been good to know, but we left just over an hour after we were seated, and it certainly felt like we were rushed. I appreciated the kindness of the servers, but more time would have been nice.

Delicious food. Great service! Except that after 1.5 hours (almost to the minute) they asked us to move to the bar as they had another reservation for our table. Although there were 3 other tables in sight that had had no one at them during our visit...

Food was very tasty; best steak I've had for a looong time! Our server, Jordan, was awesome and attentive. We were celebrating my adult son's birthday and sat in the actual vault, which was enjoyable, as it was just our party, so it was more private. I had heard about Vault through family and friends, and this was my first dining experience. I found the pricing to be reasonable and look forward to returning again.

We booked online, which was very easy and convenient. When we arrived we were seated at a good location, and promptly served. The service was friendly and courteous, and the meal arrived in good time. Very good food, especially the pork ribs (the special) and the lamb shank. There was a festive feeling to the place, since there were at least three birthdays being celebrated. All in all, it's fair to say we'll be back.

We like coming here for special events. We came for my husband and my bdays. Hubby paid the bill $190+ with tip and tax. Was shocked upon reviewing bill at home that we were charged for the bday dessert we shared. The waitress knew it was our bdays. Seemed very cheap. Going elsewhere next time.

Usually LOVE The Vault. Unfortunately our vegetables were literally RAW, which was disappointing. I understand some people like them that way- but a good meal out should be an experience.. if I was the server, I would have spend a little extra care asking questions (at least 1 or 2)! To find out how you like your vegetables cooked? Etc .

Overall considering how busy they were, being valentines, the vault did a great job with getting food out on the table quickly. Love the ambiance and feel in the Vault. Will be sure to go again!
