Special anniversary celebration

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).

We love Vault 244. We recently moved to the area and have become regulars. The Happy Hour menu is a great way to start trying things, although the regular menu features Tapas small-plates that really aren't that small at all. Vault 244 really does change their menu seasonally, so if you like something you might not find it on the... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the quiet evening - near a river so there were birdcalls and a lovely ambiance outside. Food was excellent, with generous portions.

My wife and I went there for our "diner date" on a Friday night. We did make a reservation as recommended by our friends. We actually showed up about 30 minutes early and to our surprise we were seated right away. We got a table outside and it was very nice ( inside was very busy and a little too... More

The Food was OK, but overpriced. We ordered salad and an entree and it took 2 hours and 15 minutes to finish the meal. From placing the ordr, it was over an hour to receive any food.

I was quite happy with my visit here. Not having been before, I didn't realize that reservations are highly recommended particularly if you have a group of 4 or 5. The staff was very accommodating and happy to help. We were happy to peruse the lengthy drink menu and order drinks from the waiting area. The food was outstanding. The... More

You won't find a nicer more relaxing place in town. The food in wonderful. The Wagyu Flatiron Steak juicy and tender. Diver Scallops yummy and their Chocolate Coconut Dome decadent. I'm making myself hungry. Go.

This is my go to date night spot. My husband and I love to sit at the bar and visit with the super friendly bartenders. The drinks are exceptional and everything we have ordered there has been wonderful. I really love the steak salad they do with chimichurri sauce. It is light but filling and the flavors are amazing.
