Love this place.  Even going here when was a small place and the new one since 2004.  A true hidden jem.
Vanessa's is a chain around NYC and this location was extremely busy with walk-in customers and delivery runners coming through on the evening we visited. The food was not all that good, and some dishes WAY over salted while others flavorless. They also managed to add a soup dish to our order that we did not order! Probably won't be returning.
Is this place bad? No but I think there are certain things to avoid. I came here right after eating at Shu Jiao Fu Zhou next door and the dumplings there are much better than Vanessa's. They were more fresh, tastier and cheaper. Service was also much faster next door, Vanessa's took their time and somehow, the food still didn't taste like it was freshly made. The skin on Vanessa's dumplings were too thick and the meat portion was small. Same with the pork fried dumplings, which were also too oily. I also had the sesame pancake with Szechuan style beef sauce. It came out lukewarm and the meat was dry. The only saving grace was the pickled vegetables, which added balance to the dish. The one dish I liked was the wonton noodle soup. The wontons were fresh, the noodles had a good chew and the soup was well flavored. Overall, this place just had mediocre food. Would I come again? I guess but if you're coming for steamed dumplings, I'd definitely go next door.
