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.

The Vault never disappoints. Great martinis and food is excellent. I enjoyed the crab and avocado salad and the crispy pork belly. Would have had a second helping of the pork belly but they were all out!

My husband and I come to the Vault for our date nights. The food is great and the menu changes often, The food is fresh and delicious and the drinks are amazing. The staff are super friendly. The atmosphere is so nice, with a variety of seating such as sofas, tables, or seating at the bar.

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

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.
