Our hostess at the Olle Hotel recommended the Red Vault Bistro for dinner. It was located right around the corner from the hotel. We were there on a Thursday night, so we received very personalized service. The food was outstanding. We even purchased a piece of art that was on their wall. All in all, a great experience.

Found this place by chance and glad I did. Had the ribeye steak (special) and it doesn't disappoint. Seasoned and cooked perfectly. Wife had lamb chops (another daily special) and they were perfect. Service was great! Yes it takes a while but if your in a hurry there is a Dairy Queen down the road. Great wine selection as well.... More

Some entrees are overpriced. Thursday night specialty is Italian food which is good but slightly overpriced. Interior in need of repair. Hamburgers (and getting French Fries is a bonus) are great and unique.

We ordered rolls but obviously the chef had no idea...nor the staff. There are not many places to eat in this town.

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
