Visited Friday evening 7.30. Very quiet early on but as place filled there was a nice atmosphere. Food delicious but portions could have been a little bigger. Service very friendly but not intrusive. After meal we moved next door to bar. Amazing place with alcoves for groups and lovely furnishings and trendy music. Fantastic cocktails.

I've been here many times for drinks n food in the past but on this occasion went on a speed dating night. This was a fun and the bar staff were attentive along with the host. The establishment has a cosy feel, always worth a trip here and I'm definitely going back.

It is an unusual setting for a restaurant . The entrance is a long way from the bar and restaurant. You need to walk along a long corridor and you wonder if you are going the right way. Once in the restaurant the decor is a little on the shabby side but the food is very nice. It says disappointing... More

Out with friends enjoying the renovated buildings of the jewlery quarter. Nice cocktails enjoyed the style of the place. Music was loud in the main room but the alcoves are separated, quieter. Worth a visit

The music in the bar area a little overpowering. All staff very attentive and pleasant. Menu gave a good selection for all and when the food arrived it was excellent and enjoyed by all.

The Venue is very interesting steeped in history but really would need updating. The venue looks and feels tired and money would need to be invested into it's whole building in order to bring it up to a standard suitable for the amount of money being charged to eat there. The front door that lead down a staircase was uninviting... More

Description
With the rich surroundings of Birmingham���s Jewellery Quarter as its backdrop, The Vaults is among the city���s most celebrated restaurants. Set below a Victorian building one might expect gloom, but this restaurant is utterly contemporary, comfortable and light. Panton S chairs and seriously arty photography show an eye for design and style while brick arches furnished with sofas provide cosy spaces for romantic cocktails or swapping gossip. Headed up by Keith Brown, who comes via Bank and The Jam House, the kitchen provides a stunning British and European menu reliant on local, fresh and quality produce and simple, sympathetic and unfussy techniques. An impressive selection of wines and champagnes are the icing on The Vaults��� extremely tempting cake.
