We have been coming to Vanessies to listen to Doug Montgomery for the past 18 years. It is must stop wen we go to Santa Fe. He is an incredible entertainer and we love to hear all the other entertainers who go there and are always willing to come up and sing a song or two. It is a fantastic place to spend an evening.

The atmosphere is excellent, friendly, comfortable, family style like everyone knows you and accepts you. Place to have fun with friends and meet new ones. Food a bit expensive but expected due to excellent prepared.

What a great spot to feel like a SF local! We stayed at the Inn at Vanessie's so we easily walked over to the bar for a wine or the dinning room for dinner on our last 3 night stay. Pianist Doug Montgomery plays it all and sings as well. We enjoyed a delicious and perfectly cooked rib eye steak one night. The Patio Room is a beautiful dining area but the middle room is perfect for listening to the music and having conversation as well.

Excellent quartet you will not forget. The place was packed and fun afterdark. They have 18 rooms if you want to hold a small conference or leadership seminar for your key people. A family reunion was going on when were there. Big rooms and ceilngs. Great art and wooden floors. Snow was causing a lot of dripping in the dining room. Open flame grilling made our eyes water in the large dining room. Great Sante Fe room with large windows.

Our concierge recommended Vanessie Santa Fe for fine dining and live entertainment. The interior has high ceilings, wooden floors, original art, fire places and an extra large grand piano. The guest artist played a range of songs that were enjoyable. This backdrop laid the base to our dining experience. We were warmly greeted and seated in comfortable chairs with linen table covers. Very pleasant and upscale and far away enough from the lounge music to have a pleasant conversation. I wanted a custom dinner and the team happily arranged for me to have their rib eye steak different to the menu. I combined the arugula salad and steak into one for a wonderful meal. I was charged only for one item. Because of the autumn chill I chose to have a single malt scotch with the meal. The bartender provided me with a generous pour in a beautiful glass. My dinner company had a delicious piece of fish. We both went away happy and recommended the establishment to friends. A few nights later I returned a second time and delighted in another outstanding repeat performance. By the way, if you get one of their business cards the business offers $10. off with a purchase of $75 or more.
