I am not one to give criticize other buisnesses ecspecially those that are locally owned. But I do have to interject that I have been to this restaurant and have been disapointed to say the least everytime. A Beautiful building and lots of potential! Unfortunatley not alot of tact. The food was cold and the service was attrocious one of the waitresses was much more concerened with chatting on her cell phone then waiting on any tables. Clean it up guys!
i eat at the vault at least two times a week and it's unreal...the service is great, the food is great, and the owners are great...whether you're there for a special occasion or just want some good for it's the place to go and not too pricey either... the ambiance is warm and inviting...except on hot days when the have the ac going and the room is very comfortable... also they now serve alcohol and have a great selection of beers and wine...so if you want a good time, service, and food the vault is the place to go...see you there!
We will not return again the service was lousy, no salads served with the meal, no bread , had to ask for it and the waitress said it took so long as the buns just came out of the oven... oven must have been off as they were stone cold. Never was checked upon by waitress for more wine, the whole experience was unpleasant and disapointing, You are cutting corners int the wrong areas..
A nice change of pace from the ready-to-eat meals heated up at places like Smitty's among others. I suggest early seating reservations as the restaurant is small, seating is snug and it usually gets quite crowded by 6 or 7pm. We have not had a bad meal there, and the bananas foster is delicious. Just make sure there are at least 4 people with which to share.
Ralph And Miriam That Run The Vault Restaurant Are Super Hosts. I have never had anything but a first class meal, great friendly service, super music and atmosphere. Other diners there have always been equally happy and the room is full of good times and happy chatter. Experience The Vault yourself and be very satisfied. The meat is cooked to perfection the way you like it. I'm getting hungry thinking about those steamed veggies, delectable desserts and main courses. Always hard to decide what to order as it is all superb! Houlton is lucky to have The Vault Restaurant here!
We went to the vault new years eve and just like every time we go the food and atmosphere were fantastic. We ordered two appetizers , both were great and out in no time, the food focus is on quality not quantity and that is my kind of restaurant. I had steak and it was rare just like i prefer and soft and tender to eat. If you have a special occasion dining at the vault is the way to go, just note they dont serve alcohol but you can bring your own, they will chill and provide glasses as you wish....all this and dinner by low lite overhead lights and candles on table.
When we want to judge a restaurant, we look into its service, food, outlook and price.
Vault is by all means the best place to eat in town. And its not just a nice restaurant in a remote town of Houlton, it is comparable to much fancier, pricier restaurants of a metropolitan.
Good food, good service, reasonable price.
Vault is not just a name, you can literally sit and dine inside a vault. That is an exprience in itself.
