Bland food. Crowded. Over priced and terrible service. Reservations for 3 couples and we were seated at a table for 4. My wife got up to use the restroom and on the way back to the table she slipped and fell flat on her back on a small tiled section of the floor where the servers come out from behind... More

Fabulous food! The filet mignon melts in your mouth and the butternut ravioli is wonderful!! Can't wait to go back!

I am sure the meals are great, but we always go early for drinks and appetizers! Excellent service! Great for couples or for meeting friends there to chat!

We only went for cocktails and conversation. We were not disappointed. Full, beautiful bar, creative recipes, rotating taps, cozy fire! Our drinks were delicious and the food on the other patron's plates looked and smelled wonderful.

Best place in town for a business dinner or date night. The food and drinks are really top notch. One of only a few "fancy" places in Albany. But it's not too fancy. Try the cocktails too, most are amazing

Our group of 4 really enjoyed the wine selection and the warm fireplace on a cold winter afternoon. Perhaps the classiest joint in Albany!

I absolutely love Vault 244. It's the single best restaurant in Albany, and I would say better than any in Salem, and better than many in Portland and Eugene. The place is beautifully decorated and inviting and comfortable as soon as you walk in. Today we had the soup (more of a stew), a couple of different salads, fish tacos,... More

Probably the best ambiance for a date over dinner and drinks. Very nice bar but relatively small bar top. Fantastic drinks. The food is more than adequate for the price. For the experience, everything is fairly priced. I would give it 5/5 but I need a little extra something special to set it apart to get there. No complaints. A... More

This is a posh petite little spot on the corner of 1st St. in downtown Albany. Great food and service. The Vault has a fun, swanky vibe, perfect for a night out. Drawbacks are that if you are trying to catch the happy hour it can fill up fast. For a light night happy hour the table by the fire... More

Great food, drinks, atmosphere and service. If you don't have a reservation it's worth the wait. I've been to the Vault on quite a few ocassions for different reasons and their quality never waivers.
