We visited this restaurant on a Monday and it was packed! It seemed like the only restaurant that can attract the crowds. The restaurant is modern, clean, warm and friendly. There is a huge bar and there is a good focus on alcohol, so I think they quite enjoy the bar scene. Other than that, the menu looked very inviting... More

We were hungry, and I felt like some red meat. The menu looked attractive. Inside the atmosphere is warm and modern. We learnt the bank had been turned into a bar. They served some food that became so popular they added a restaurant. Now I am not sure if it is a bar with a restaurant, or a restaurant with... More

This is the best restaurant I have found in Albany. We had a large party of 8 but the service and food were great. The menu has many choices for small and large meals. Nice wine selection that is not over priced as well as cocktails and beers. The atmosphere is dark and comfortable.

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.

What an amazingly wonderful place for dinner and drinks. The food and drinks are always excellent. The staff is friendly and always there to serve you. The atmosphere is cozy but yet classy. 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!
