Came here on a groupon, wouldn't have come otherwise; was looking forward to it but was disappointed. Food was very average. Took over an hour to get our first course which wasn't a problem as we weren't in a rush but come on... an hour?!...More

Really nice bar, never eaten there, but the cocktails are really good and the atmosphere is great. I love the little secluded booths you can hire for parties.

This is a night club with some tables set out by the bar. Music is loud (it is a nightclub) and food is terrible and service is poor. Not romantic.

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.
