We called at 4 pm to book a group of 14 as we had just biked in from Eugene. Not only did they call in an extra waiter, they set up a back room for us. We had a fantastic evening with no disappointments. We will be back.

This Bistro is a bit pricey but the food is delicious. Comfortable settings and always has patrons. Tables are even outside during the summer months and you won't believe the bar set up. I won't even tell you I'll let you come and see.

While riding our bikes through town our group of 14 saw the restaurant and decided to give it a try that night. I called for reservations at 4PM for 6PM. On short notice Robin the manager asked Jason to come in on his day off so she could accommodate our group. We had the back room to ourselves and enjoyed... More

Good pub food, excellent soups. In-house craft brews are also excellent. Atmosphere is youthful and vibrant, best with the view from the upper deck.

I love the ambience of Vault 244.....the food is excellent, great service and dimmed lighting get along with a beautiful bar and lounge with big fireplace. It's an old bank from the 1800's....so a real feel of history. A huge vault, hence the name Vault 244. Love the outdoor dining too. Very nicely done. Maureen

I have eaten at Vault 244 twice and have been very pleased both times. The first time we had a small plate special. The steak was very good and the potatoes au gratin excellent. Very good and also a great value. The second meal we had was a pork dish with several different offerings. It is one of the best... More

Good happy hour prices and variety. Our dishes and drinks were good. The service was a little "spotty ". Our severs were friendly but part of our order was missed so our meals came out at different times. We'll definitely go back and try again though.

Iv enjoyed some things here,coconut chocolate dome for example, but the last time I was there they were offering a chocolate torte that was not the best. It was way to dense even for a torte. It was impossible to finish even between my husband and I. It was disappointing for us.

Nice addition to the Albany restaurant scene. Very tasty food and drinks by a staff that is very helpful. Not cheap but worth the price. Bartenders are amusing if you sit at the bar. Has nice outside seating if weather permits.

Thank Kevin H

This is described as an upscale bar/tapas place. I haven't yet been there, but from walking by it looks intriquing. It offers outdoor tables.
