I have traveled to Santa Fe for several years and I always make it a point to go to Vanessie's. I have always had a fantastic experience with each and every visit. The staff are extremely friendly and top notch, the food delicious and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. More recently the crowd seems to have become more of an ecclectic mix of ages, which gives the place a more contemporary feel. If you like a good piano bar, it's worth the trip just to hear Doug Montgomery tickle the ivories! What a talented pianist and he is very entertaining. He really connects with the audience and makes the Vanessie's experience a memorable one. I highly recommend you put Vanessie's on your to-do list when you are in the Santa Fe area. You will not be disappointed!
