As a group of six people, we were shown to our table at Vanessie or ordered our food. One minute after our food arrived, an old man parked his walker by our table, started shouting that we were at his table and should leave. As we ignored him, he proceeded to kick the legs of the table and chairs. I... More

What a fun place Vanessie's is!! Doug at the piano is an outstanding entertainer. And he seems to be genuinely enjoying his audience. Very versatile and outgoing..not to be missed in you are in Santa Fe. The night we were there, it happened that Patty LuPone was also in attendance and actually got up to the mic and performed a...

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
