Well what to say staying 4 nights in Dunedin came 3 nights and not 4 because it’s closed on Sunday . The service was great they recognised you as well which I believe is very important. Make you feel great too. So well done I will definitely recommend Vault 21 .

Beautiful food and awesome service. The Paua Fritters are melt in your mouth and lovely flavour combination on the Pork Belly with tamarind sauce. Definitely coming back for more :)

Be nice to see the occasional additional “new” item on the menu even if only as an additional special.

My family and I were booked in for a graduation dinner and we were very disappointed. While the food was indeed delicious, it was not worth the price that we paid. My parter and I went to Prohibition Smokehouse (which I believe Vault21 is affiliated to) earlier in the week for another graduation dinner and we impressed beyond measure. The food was fantastic and portion sizes brilliant! So going off that, I am extremely disappointed. We all had the chicken salad for a starter and were each lucky to have 3 slices of chicken on our plate. For the main, some of us had the pork belly which was minuscule (esp. in comparison to Prohibition) and would have been more suited for a starter. The chicken main was adequate but nothing extraordinary. Finally those who took the lemon posset were satisfied but those who opted for the "brownie" ate the sliver that was on their plate within a few bites. Unfortunately I cannot in good conscience recommend for people to pay $60pp for such an experience. The staff were extremely helpful and prompt and the drinks delicious but that is as far as the positives go for our experience.

Loved the starters, let down was the bang bang chicken - not very tasty and iceberg lettuce and few pieces of broccoli didn't seem quite the standard for the food and price. Will make sure to ask to be seated at the back next time as music seemed very loud. Service started not great with water being spilt all over the table when it was poured and not cleaned up straight away. It did get better and they were attentive. I will come back.

Took from ordering meal to getting starter for a beer to arrive and even then had to ask for it. Nearly died of thirst..

Paua patties and venison were great, found the beef dumplings and duck tacos a little too dry for my taste and ability to swallow (dry mouth due to treatment). Very good value for money with First Table discount

A year ago I had a great meal at Vault 21 and so chose it for a family birthday meal. The meals were un inviting, meagre, very dry, over cooked and disappointing all round. We wont be back and can't recomend. $176 for three meals and three drinks. An average pub meal would have been better quality.

We had been to Vault 21 before and we felt like there were many more options that could have been the better picks for the set menus. The food was ok but the quality was definitely not worth $65. On top of that, we actually had to wait for 40 minutes for our mains to arrive after the starters, and that was only after we asked the waiter if they knew why it was taking so long. We were sitting right next to the counter, so we were a bit disappointed that the waiter did not notice how long we were waiting for our food. The mains were brought out almost immediately after we asked the waiter to check, which means that they were ready, and just sitting there in the kitchen and someone forgot to bring them out for us. The food was cold at the bottom of the plates only further confirmed this for us. Overall, it was a very poor experience for us, especially when we had to pay that much. It was very disappointing because we had been here before for casual dinner and we had always enjoyed it.

We really enjoyed the night but it was very clear that you were understaffed on a night which you knew was going to be a busy graduation night. Drinks taking 1 hour to arrive is really just ridiculous. After asking for the receipt after payment we realised that we had been charged an extra $450. This is an outrageous amount to be added to the bill and we were very lucky to ask and check the receipt. However the food tasted great and I really do hope this feedback is taken on board as I do enjoy this venue.

Usually love vault 21 but went there for my graduation and did not have a good experience. Drinks took 35 minutes to come out and you had run out of champagne glasses and cutlery. The set menu was very restrictive and the eggplant entree was below par. Food took so long and we didn’t bother to wait for dessert. Most of the servers were very polite and helpful but one female wasn’t very warm and didn’t ask how the meal was. Very disappointing for vault

So pleased we booked as your team had to turn away a number of potential diners. Proof obviously of how popular Vault 21 is. A great start to a fantastic evening at Th' Dudes concert. We'll be back again.

Food was delicious, as always. We were a party of 18 and all bar one of the meals came out at the same time. Very impressive for that number of people. I didn't think the $30 cake fee was necessary. I understand why it's there, but the total bill would have been substantial for a booking of our size, especially when drinks were factored in. Great evening enjoyed by all. Will definitely visit again!

We were a large group with a complicated booking of three tables made fairly late. When we arrived, not only was everyone and everything ready for us, but the seating arrangements had been optimised beyond what we expected!!! The staff was so accommodating is showing people the tables, the service was great throughout the meal, and the food was fantastic! I am so glad I decided on Vault 21!

We chose a variety of the small plates for our party of five but were impressed that it was no issue to adjust the number of items on the plate to meet our needs.
