Both of my visits to Vault 244 Bistro “wowed” me with fabulous food. They offer one of the most creative, melt-in-your-mouth preparations of salmon I ever had. It was a filet stuffed with bay shrimp and Bartlett pear, seasoned with curried lemongrass sauce on top of cauliflower puree. And my filet mignon wrapped in bacon was surprisingly tender even though... More

We recently dined at Vaults 244 in downtown Albany. We were impressed by the extensive bar menu - it was hard to decide on which cocktail to start with. My husband and I both enjoyed a delicious meal. We'd like to return for Happy hour in the future - very nice bar.

This is the third time I have been to the Vault. Both my work associate and I had wonderful food. I have not had anything here that was not excellent. After my dinner the server twisted my arm and I had the chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce. Blew the crap out of my diet... More

While visiting Albany, OR I found this corner Bar/Bistro that gives a much bigger city vibe than the town's other establishments. Drinks with friends were right on the money and service was attentive. I recommend Vault 244 if you want creative cocktails or a quiet place to chill and chat.

My husband and I stopped in for a cocktail. The bartender/mixologist, Jason, was beyond incredible. Not knowing what we wanted, he asked us questions about our likes and dislikes and, then, literally created his own drink of something he thought we'd like. We were blown away. The drinks were fabulous! If you're in Albany, you must stop there for drinks.... More

I sat at the bar for a quick happy hour dinner. The fish tacos were amazing in flavors, but by the time I ate the first one, the second one was no longer intact because there was so much moisture from the sauce or slaw. It just fell through when I picked it up. Bartender actually introduced himself! Awesome upscale... More

I recently visited this little restaurant inn the heart of Albany's historic downtown. This place lives up to its hype! The cocktail menu was excellent providing a good selection of old classic drinks, and well thought out and executed new drinks. Who ever is in charge of making their cocktail menu has an excellent knowledge of drink making. There menu... More

We were seated promptly at 7:00 p.m. and were not served dessert until 8:40 p.m. Two of us ordered wine as a cocktail, and were never offered another glass. We finally had to ask for a second glass, while another member of our party who wanted wine with dinner. The prime rib had more fat than was expected. One of... More

Nice happy hour "dinner" on a Thursday evening. Excellent service, wonderful food (the fish and chips was exceptional). Wine pours are very good...not skimpy. Appreciate that, thank you! Highly recommend. Comfortable, private seating. Love the atmosphere.
