This is described as an upscale bar/tapas place. I haven't yet been there, but from walking by it looks intriquing. It offers outdoor tables.

We went there with family for my wife's birthday dinner. Reservations were made, once there but nobody could find them. We were early anyway so decided to wait in the bar. Ordered drinks and appetizers off the Happy Hour menu for three of us. Since I had to go to a Boy Scout meeting later on, I just ordered water... More

This gem of a restaurant is found in refurbished downtown Albany. It is located in an old bank. This is an excellent restaurant for dates and adults to get together. Very adult menu. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. Excellent cocktail, liquor, and wine lists.

Great ambiance, limited overly priced menu, great drinks and a great happy hour sums this place up. It is by far the fanciest place in Albany and probably all of Linn County. Service was good, though for the first half of our visit the waitress was walking around the dinning area on the work phone which I found unprofessional. Being... More

My husband and I do date night every Friday night. Well this is one of our favorites. It's spendy but worth it. You won't be disappointed. My favorite is the surf and turf, although they don't always have that. Their specials ,which change I think daily, have always been great. We skip the appetizers usually because you get plenty of...

We go out on a weekly basis and have eaten at some very good restaurants in Portland as well as while we were on trips overseas as well as in the USA.. For a smaller town, we found that Vault 244 was as good and probably better than many of the other places we have eaten! The service was excellent,... More

We were sat, ordered than waited 45 minutes for our appetizers. When I asked where they were he told us that other people were waiting and hour and half for their food. REALLY? After that I stopped watching the clock. When we ordered the hanger steak, the waiter said the chef suggests it be served medium for it to be... More

Love the cocktail menu. Definitely need a reservation if you go on a Thursday night but we enjoyed our time. It is one of the nicer bars in Albany and has great food.

We celebrated our 28th anniversary here, and it was fabulous. It was a real treat. Great wine selection. Fresh, locally sourced foods. The salmon stuffed with crab was incredible! Chocolate pecan pie for dessert. Definitely recommend!

I eat here regularly. Food is always delicious. I've never been disappointed. Staff is always extraordinarily friendly (unlike the joke restaurant Sybarus where the manager, Jesse, feels free to scream at customers outside the restaurant).
