This is really a fun place. Great music, food, service and atmosphere. The prices were reasonable. We didn't get to see Doug, but the duo from California were wonderful. Will definitely come back next time we are in Santa Fe.

I have been to the piano bar at Vanessie many, many times - sometimes a good experience and sometimes not, and sometimes strange, all mostly of my own making. I randomly watched some videos of performances today on You Tube and I would like to set one thing straight in writing. Doug, you are a quintessential entertainer. It is amazing... More

Lobster Mac and cheese was delicious and Brayden and James were excellent entertainment. Food was reasonably priced and atmosphere was great. Also just a block from where we stayed.

Clearly, some people do not have a sense of humor. This is a piano bar, not Carnegie hall. I've heard Doug play at Vannessie twice, and multiple times at the Spencer Theatre in Alto, New Mexico. How refreshing to have a virtuoso pianist who also has a great sense of humor, and is fine with making fun of himself. Lots... More

I come to Santa Fe yearly and never miss this spot especially if pianist and entertainer Doug Montgomery is performing! He is the best anywhere and men and women both enjoy him. You name it---he can play it and sings as well! The food is also topnotch! It will be the highlight of your visit to Santa Fe. All ages... More

We had our wedding reception there. The food was fantastic and the service was great. We also go for some of the live performances like American JeM, Doug Montgomery, etc, which are great but I would suggest going early for these events if you want food and/or drinks. For some reason, management doesn't staff properly for these events. The waitstaff... More

The food was very good with some unique options. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. Even though we sat in the dining room we could hear the music and singing from the bar and really enjoyed it. We plan on going back to sit in the lounge during this trip.
