What an amazingly wonderful place for dinner and drinks. The food and drinks are always excellent. The staff is friendly and always there to serve you. The atmosphere is cozy but yet classy. You feel like your in a fabulous restaurant in like San Fran or New York City. What a wonderful addition to Albany Oregon, we are very lucky... More

I made a reservation here for 6 based on Tripadvisor and it was better than expected. We ate at an outside table. Got attentive but not overbearing service. I asked for the hangar steak "on the rare side of medium rare." It was sublime! Juicy, flavorful and the accompanying string beans and potatoes were perfect. Everyone at the table enjoyed... More

Love this cute little Bistro in Albany Oregon. On a cold winter day, relax by the fire. Menu items change regularly, but always delicious. Desserts are a must!

While staying in Albany for dads weekend at OSU my wife and I always look for small and interesting places to dine. We always seem to find a very good variety of dining options in this area and corvallis, and vault 244 hit the mark. Welcoming for the more mature crowd that wants value, quality, good times and the ability... More

The Vault 244 has a kind of east coast feel, rather dark, large tables and upholstered chairs with high ceilings and wood blinds. We were there with my 93 year old aunt for a light meal. We were very surprised and appreciative of the large tapas menu. After relaxing with excellent dry martinis (2 gin, 1 vodka), we ordered from... More

We looked at the menu online. When I spotted the Ahi Tuna I was excited to eat here. The location is great, right downtown. Outside seating offered. Reservations accepted. I was very disappointed to learn that the week's menu did not offer Ahi Tuna. It had not been updated online. I ended up with a parmesan risotto with prawns. It... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with lovely indoor and outdoor seating. We stopped by on a Friday night and were seated without reservations. They have a nice selection of wine and a full bar. My husband had the Alaskan halibut which he said was not very flavorful and a bit overcooked. I had the Basil Pesto fettuccini with prawns, and... More

I have been here several times for drinks, which are always amazing! I haven't had the food, so I can't comment on that. Great for a date!

Tried the Mamacita martini - wow! The peppered vodka in this drink made the drink spicy and unique - was realllllllyyyy good. Tried the Happy... More

A great choice for date night or an evening out with friends. Their food is excellent and they have a nice variety of entrees and small plate choices. They also have a nice drink selection if you are up for a cocktail and happy hour. This place can be hard to walk in and get a table. Call in advance... More
