Didn't book a table but they managed to get two of us a seat. It's a fairly upmarket vibe in there but pretty nice. Our waitress was awesome, really friendly and provided us with really good recommendations. The shrimp pasta was really good and the...More

We recently ate at Vault 164 which appears to be in a former Bank of America location. The food and service were very good. If you check in on Facebook you receive a free appetizer of brussel sprout chips ($9.00 on the menu). This is...More
