Wife and I go here for special occasions and when we want to splurge a little. Expensive for Albany but worth the prices they charge, Food and service are excellent and their drinks are very good.

Thanks to our friend in Salem (one grew up in Albany and still has family there), we were treated to a birthday dinner at the Vault in Albany. Now I'll admit...I'm a bit of a food snob, so when I heard we were going to Albany for my big 5-0hhhhhhh birthday, I was a bit disappointed. Well, I was TOTALLY... More

I've now had a few meals at Vault 244 and would unequivocally recommend this establishment. The food has been consistently very good along with the inviting ambiance. At times a reservation is a good idea and they will hold an outside table. I would definately recommend a visit.

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
