The food we were served was very good - I had salad caprese and my husband had chicken vegetable soup, which he said spoiled him for other chicken soups. The bread was fantastic. The ambiance is great - a 150 year old building that used to be a bank.

I set out to review the Red Vault but find that there's nothing I can add to what has been said except BRAVO! Ten of us were there for lunch on my wife's birthday and all were impressed and are still talking about the food and the staff. Next time we hope to stay overnight in the lovely B &... More

Food was good. Everything served ala carte and a bit pricey. Service was pleasant but erratic. We were a group of 17 and that strained their capacity that particular night

Oh my gosh hands down this was the best burger I've ever eaten in my life. It was worth the wait you could tell they were preparing it in the kitchen as ordered. If I had to think of anything that could improve the wonderful meal I would say maybe a little bit less salt on their French fries

Every so often you stumble upon a restaurant that is so mind blowing, you can't believe you're in a tiny town of 1300. Red Vault Bistro is by far the absolute best food we have eaten in Flatonia. We have eaten there at least 3 times the past 2 months, and each time we leave wondering what this town did... More

Great gallery of local artists, great food and excellent service! Can't wait to come back! We came in seeking reprise and refreshments because of the heat and found quite the gem! I'm ready to have a plate of those fries and the caprese again!

Traveling home on from San Antonio after a quick search I found the bistro's lunch menu. I called in an order to go so I could get back on the road. The turkey sandwich and french fries were quite yummy. Hopefully in the near future I will be able to stop and eat-in so I can enjoy the atmosphere of... More

Dinner with my sister and cousin was so lovely. The nightly specials sounded absolutely divine, we chose the ribeye. It was cooked to perfection and the sides were scrumptious as well. Lovingly prepared and served, a must stop in Flatonia, Texas.
