The upscale bit reasonable menu is a winner. Had Piggy piggi pork chop and kale salad. The romaine salad my wife had with the spicy chicken very good. Doug and Bob both great entertainers Price with 2 drinks $120.

I have been going to Vanessie for several years now. I took some family out for Vanessie's wonderful entertainment on December 23rd, 2017. The "wonderful entertainment" means Doug Montgomery, of course. We were in for a surprise because virtually everything had changed, except for Doug...More

Doug just keeps getting better! Add 35 years of wowing audiences at Vanessie to his Juilliard training, and you get a magical combination of classical, pop, Broadway, and Cole Porter classics with Doug's inimitable mix of humor and virtuosity. Bravo on the new cuisine and...More

We ate in the restaurant but could still hear the great music coming from the piano bar; excellent pianist! The food was fantastic. My husband got the beef skewers and I got the chicken with risotto. Both were reasonably priced and very good.

No, this time of year you will not need a reservation. There is a parking lot for the cafe as well as for the hotel.

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.
