Cozy fire going was great for the rainy night we chose. Service was excellant and the food was great. Two of us had the stuffed salmon . It was really good. Quite atmosphere. Nice to be able to talk and not yell across the table. The dessert menu was tempting but none of us in our group of four had... More

Vaults is a small gem Every detail is in good taste.. It has a cozy feeling and delicious up scale food. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. On a recent visit, the only seats available were at the end of the bar. It was a treat to be served by the bar tender who advised us on menu options... More

We had stuffed salmon which was amazing and the cosmopolitan and tom Collins were some of the best we've had. Then the desserts came and were almost too pretty to eat! Definitely recommend but make reservations.

Trendy place in Albany, cosy ambiance around a nice chimney, impressive bar ready to serve any kind of cocktail. I voted the traditional Mojito, giant glass, perfect taste. Exactly what you need to combat the jet lag from the incoming flight from France! We went for some delicate sea food appetizers and finished with a standard delicious steak. Nice business... More

I often get so distracted by the cocktails and the happy hour tapas that I don't make it to the dinner. And the dinners are great too. Inventive and locally sourced ingredients. Reservations are required.

Great place for dinner and drinks. Not a ton of seating so it's a good idea to get there early or get on the list. Great Cosmos!

Menu needs more vegetarian options, but even for meat-eaters, the menu could be more varied. Szechuan noodles were quite bland which is not what one expects in a Szechuan dish. I have been here before and was surprised. Drinks are still great.

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.
