Wow, what a showman and piano-man. Nights vary...also loved the apprentices from Santa Fe Opera that performed on Sunday night along w/Doug. Food was great.....locals all around so we knew it would be good.

We went to Vanessie to hear Doug Montgomery, only to find out after we were seated and had ordered drinks that he performed from 6-8 pm only. It was after 8:00 pm when we arived. We had ordered drinks, listened to about three songs from another performing group when the waitperson approached our table and advised that the bartender insisted she advise us there was a $5 per person cover charge for the band. Nowhere was there anything posted about a cover charge (front door, table, signage, etc.), especially after we had ordered and already listened to the band. We were not even sure other people were being charged a cover. We felt like we were singled out because they pegged us as tourists rather than a local. We paid the cover charges, but will never go back and would not refer this place to anyone. Very poor business management.

Food was pretty good, although could have been better for the price. The big thing here is the crazy bar/live music action, which is very popular and full of dancing locals. If you're eating in the next room, you get to hear the music without it being so loud you can't talk, so that works.

When we plan a trip to Santa Fe the first thing I do is look to see if Doug Montgomery is going to be performing. If he is not there I'll postpone our trip. Doug Montgomery is extremely talented. My degree is in music(instrument is piano) and I'm always amazed at his creativeness - transitioning from one piece to the next, creativeness within the piece, He will play any selection you want to hear. Very entertaining and plays to the crowd. He plays a variety of selections, including some classical and also has some selections he wrote. Definitely an event not to miss.

Doug Montgomery is great at the piano. We have seen and/or heard locals and members of the Santa Fe Opera perform; where else can one find this mix?
