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.

I have been to Vanessie many times and every time is better than the last. The food is consistently good, the service is very good, and the entertainment is fun for young & older alike.
My favorite entre is the fillet of beef with gorgonzola and shallot port reduction.
take your smiling face, a good attitude, and enjoy the evening.

We dropped in Sunday evening for dinner. We ate in the bar area - a beautiful large room where a singer/piano player was belting out show tunes and songs by famous American songwriters (Simon, Denver, et al). The food was delicious. I had a half rack of lamb that melted in your mouth. My wife had a strip loin that was excellent

This is a great place for an after dinner drink and live music. Very modern decor and beautiful art. Great drinks and friendly staff.

For the price it should have been much better. The Ceasar salad was bland and watery. The croutons came from a box. A restaurant like this should be making their own croutons. My husbands steak was ok. I ordered a pasta with lemon sauce and capers. Pasta was overcooked. I should have spoken up because it was unedible. But I just won't go back.
The restaurant had a nice piano player with a great base player. Kept thinking of the shows on TV where the guy comes to save the restaurant. Save your money, go somewhere else.

Probably one of our best/most memorable ever evenings, listening to Doug Montgomery in the piano bar. There's lots of table in the bar and you can dine there, but have someone get there before 6 to hold the table!
