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

Every so often you stumble upon a restaurant that is so mind blowing, you can't believe you're in a tiny town of 1300. Red Vault Bistro is by far the absolute best food we have eaten in Flatonia. We have eaten there at least 3 times the past 2 months, and each time we leave wondering what this town did... More

Great gallery of local artists, great food and excellent service! Can't wait to come back! We came in seeking reprise and refreshments because of the heat and found quite the gem! I'm ready to have a plate of those fries and the caprese again!

Traveling home on from San Antonio after a quick search I found the bistro's lunch menu. I called in an order to go so I could get back on the road. The turkey sandwich and french fries were quite yummy. Hopefully in the near future I will be able to stop and eat-in so I can enjoy the atmosphere of... More

Dinner with my sister and cousin was so lovely. The nightly specials sounded absolutely divine, we chose the ribeye. It was cooked to perfection and the sides were scrumptious as well. Lovingly prepared and served, a must stop in Flatonia, Texas.

Kathryn, our hostess at the Olle Hotel recommended the Red Vault Bistro to us. The menu is one that you find in large cities at finer restaurants. The owner was our server and most attentive. The chef, the co-owner, cooked our steak to perfection and served it with tasty sides. We certainly plan on returning next time we travel to... More

I live in the Houston area and my daughter lives in San Antonio, we found Red Vault and it is our meeting place half way between for our special occasions. Always consistent and delicious. Great wine choices as well. Its well worth the drive off the beaten path. M.J.
