An Absolute Must!

My husband and I stopped in for a cocktail. The bartender/mixologist, Jason, was beyond incredible. Not knowing what we wanted, he asked us questions about our likes and dislikes and, then, literally created his own drink of something he thought we'd like. We were blown away. The drinks were... read more

I sat at the bar for a quick happy hour dinner. The fish tacos were amazing in flavors, but by the time I ate the first one, the second one was no longer intact because there was so much moisture from the sauce or slaw. It just fell through when I picked it up. Bartender actually introduced himself! Awesome upscale... More

I recently visited this little restaurant inn the heart of Albany's historic downtown. This place lives up to its hype! The cocktail menu was excellent providing a good selection of old classic drinks, and well thought out and executed new drinks. Who ever is in charge of making their cocktail menu has an excellent knowledge of drink making. There menu... More

We were seated promptly at 7:00 p.m. and were not served dessert until 8:40 p.m. Two of us ordered wine as a cocktail, and were never offered another glass. We finally had to ask for a second glass, while another member of our party who wanted wine with dinner. The prime rib had more fat than was expected. One of... More

Nice happy hour "dinner" on a Thursday evening. Excellent service, wonderful food (the fish and chips was exceptional). Wine pours are very good...not skimpy. Appreciate that, thank you! Highly recommend. Comfortable, private seating. Love the atmosphere.

My wife and I have been going to what us locals call "The Vault" since it opened. The food never disappoints and changes with seasons and their have been some "perfect 10" meals. Their tapas are reasonable and delicious. The atmosphere is modern, yet comfortable. The real draw is the bar. Bar seats for dinner are recommended if you want... More

Recently, my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in style by having a wonderful dinner at "The Vault." The ambiance of the fire going in the stylish waiting area, is a welcoming first impression of this restaurant. The service is first rate! The choices from the menu are very good with a great variety. The attention given to us... More

One of my favorite places near home. I love the feel of the place, the cocktails are excellent, and the tapas are a fun way to get a little food or a lot. Highly recommended
