Romantic diner or fun place to hang out !

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... read 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.

We were looking for a new place to try and saw all of the great reviews and decided to give it a go! We went without reservations and were told that the wait would be about 40 minutes, but it was actually only three or so-- a big plus! However service was extremely slow, TAKING 40 minutes before we saw... More

My wife and I picked this restaurant, because of the great reviews. When we first walked in the decor was fantastic. We were asked if we had reservations, which we did not, but was seated right away. The waiter was nice and friendly. We ordered appetizers. which we shared. One of the appetizers was the lettuce wraps. Best I ever... More

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.
