Description: "Nowhere else has better basics - straight-ahead steak, lamb, fresh fish, chicken & gargantuan mounds of onion loaf - than this Continental-American Steakhouse; but fantastic food is not the only draw - the festive atmosphere includes a way cool, crowded piano bar..." If great continental food in fine dining and casual dining with friendly atmosphere and world class live entertainment are your priorities, come to Vanessie. Fireplaces, exciting art, spaciousness, and lots of live music make Vanessie a local favorite.

It is nice eating in the bar area and listen to the piano player. Comfortable,fun, and easy to walk to from many hotels.

We always go to Vaniessie while in Santa Fe. We eat in the bar and listen to Doug Montgomery perform his magic on the piano. This time we got a special treat, a performance from the conductor of the Santa Fe Opera playing Chopin.

Of all the 300 some odd resturants in Santa Fe, something this town is proud of since there is little else, Vanessie's is one you should try. Nice piano bar attached, generally live music on the weekends and more during summer months. A little hard to find, but about 2 blocks west of the downtown square. For a refreshing change in Santa Fe the wait staff is prompt, it's medium/slightly expensive, food excellent. Generally this is down home meat and potato food, not New Mexican. I always go steak here. Both resturant and bar is spacious, but the staff seems to keep up. The bar is also generous and they have a menu as well.
I believe it to be one of the few places downtown that's worth it.

For live entertainment, and especially during the Opera season, Vanessie is a real treat. The bartender, Lisa, is exceptional. The martinis are wonderful. But, the food is sub-par. I would recommend either before or after dinner.

I am enjoying a great band at Vanessie. The band is The Pleasure Pilots great music and dancing. They play all over Santa Fe New Mexico. Do yourself a favor and go enjoy them.
