- Fun to try Restaurant Week1BuonGustoBobVIPDined on 6/7/2014Four of us went to try out the specials for restaurant week and it was a good experience. Everyone thought the food was very good, the portions were wonderful considering the price. They did not cut on quality or that much on quantity for the reduced price. It was a great way for us to sample the food and we were not disappointed. We will return for just normal dining since we had such a good experienceSpecial Features:
- Very GoodBigeaterDined on 6/7/2014Had the Restaurant Week dinner and the food was very good and served right. Wine was good. Service was excellent. The only bad thing was while waiting at the bar for the table the servers were filling the water pitchers with ice from a bar ice cube bin that was used to store beer and wine to keep them cold. Unsanitary to say the least.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- NoisySCPDDined on 6/6/2014My wife and I went for a nice romantic dinner, but we were seated next to 4 large groups that were very noisy. I don't think there should be a table for 2 within a room that has tables for large groups.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Vicky's for Restaurant WeekTomMVIPDined on 6/5/2014Vicky's always has a "good value" Restaurant Week menu and their regular menu is very good as well. The scallops and the the rack of lamb are particularly good orders. Both the service and the kitchen can be strained at times, but generally the food is good and well priced. On busy nights, the noise can be a problem. We would recommend it a nice night out, but nothing really special.
- Very good food, but . . .DesertDinerDined on 6/4/2014Yes, it was restaurant week and this is one of the 100 in the valley who participated. Even with a reservation, we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. The restaurant was extremely noisy and of course very busy. We had even considered leaving when our pager went off. Our server was very personable and warm and VERY busy, attended to our table well considering. The restaurant week menu had good selections in all three categories. My husband's salmon and my scallops were moist -- excellent preparation on both. I'm glad we stayed for the food although it was very difficult to carry on a conversation. We will eventually go back for the food, but it is not high on our list to take guests since we won't be able to converse easily.Special Features:
- Restaurant WeekdesertdinerDined on 6/1/2014Definitely a good deal for $26. My dining companion chose the pear salad appetizer, lamb chops (with decent green beans and non-descript mashed potatoes) and bread pudding; I chose the beet salad, scallops (served over spinach and topped with mango salsa), and flourless chocolate cake. Other than the salad greens being a touch limp, we enjoyed the Restaurant Week selections.Special Features:
- Great eveningPeggyDined on 6/1/2014We ordered off the Restaurant Week menu and were not disappointed. The beet salad was wonderful. Scallops for me and pasta for my husband were both very good and the cheesecake was a great ending. It was definitely the best value for your money. Would definitely do it again.Special Features:
- Great servicegoodfoodforme4Dined on 5/31/2014The restaurant was busy because the desert was celebrating Restaurant Week and Vicky's was offering a special $26 3-course dinner. Our server was fun, fast and very efficient. We couldn't have asked for more. Food was also delicious. We stopped in the bar after dinner where there was live music and a small dance floor. We finally decided not to stay there and went on to another club. We will definitely go back to Vicky's. They close in two weeks for the summer unfortunately.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- food4thoughtDined on 5/30/2014We went during Palm Springs restaurant week. $26.00 for a 3 course meal. Had passed by Vicky's a couple of times in our travels and talked about checking it out. Restaurant Week was a perfect opportunity. The lamb chops were outstanding! There was no need for a doggy bag; we ate it all.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nothing specialFiuprof7Dined on 5/28/2014Food was ok. Not flavorful. Presentation of food ok. Ambiance nothing special. For dinner, Would do better to have white table clothes vs varnished wood tables. Lighting needs toning down. Music in adjacent room was good.
- Always a WinnerOldNedDined on 5/23/2014We are "Rain Birds" That's snow birds from Seattle.. We try to hit Vicky's once a month because the food is great.. [I love the Battered Shrimp] and the wait staff is always attentive and pleasant.. even the car guy is A+. Great for an after dinner drink at the Piano Bar when it is going... Can't get much better.. In all our times there we have never had a single experience that was not 5 star.Special Features:
- Vicky's has it all !DiningDavidDined on 5/22/2014Who knew ? Great facility ~ Welcoming Staff ~ Various rooms for different dining experience.Looks like a well thought out plan as one can be in the bar with entertainment or in another rather quiet room for a gathering of two or more and quiet enough to talk. I will definitely go back - Generous portions ! Share it all !Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Restaurant; Better in SeasonTdrexVIPDined on 5/22/2014We visited in off season so the restaurant was half empty and the bar area, which is extensive, was pretty empty even though it had live music. Excellent food, excellent service but so-so atmosphere. The food was more continental that Santa Fe and he decor is warehouse generic with some South West touches as art and light fixtures. Likely, this is a vibrant spot in the season and we would recommend it for its excellent food and service. Menu somewhat generic.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Anniversay Celebrationmrutled1Dined on 5/3/2014My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful steak dinner, with world class service. The quality and portions provided with the meal were unsurpassed in our dining experiences of the past. Well done VickysSpecial Features:
- Great foodRaltDined on 4/26/2014I have been to Vicki's several times and it never disappoints. The food is always excellent and the service has always been great. There menu is somewhat small but there are still plenty of choices. We always eat here every time that we visit this area. It is one of our favorites and their garlic bread is awesome.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PARTY OF 10OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/19/2014Our first visit to Vicky's. We took a large party and were seated promptly at our reservation time in an open area in the center of a side dining room at a single large round table that made conversation easy and kept things lively while allowing ample elbow room for everyone. Server was very pleasant and attentive to our needs. Appetizers that stood out were the lump crab cake and the ahi tuna stack. The roasted red & golden beet salad also got great reviews from our group. Entrees of steaks and one pork chop were all cooked perfectly, and the chipotle lime corn and twice baked potato were outstanding! We brought our own wine and paid the corkage fees. All in all, everything was great and we had no negative comments.Special Features:
- Doug Montgomery saves the eveningOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 4/9/2014We were seated in a corner of the second dining room. It was fine until the room filled up and suddenly the noise level was so high you couldn't hear or talk to the person next to you without leaning in. Nothing to absorb noise except for a piece of carpet in the middle of the room, everything else is a hard surface. It made for a very uncomfortable dinner with our 86 year old aunt. Luckily after dinner we moved to the lounge and enjoyed Doug Montgomery for 45 minutes. The sand dabs were a hit along with the sautéed calimary. Just putting foam under the dining chairs would improve things without destroying any of the "Santa Fe style".Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- IW VICKY'slilo42VIPDined on 4/4/2014We have no complaints, everything was superb! Thank you for everything. Sincerely, Lilo Cooper ps: one small wish however, we always enjoyed the beefsteak tomatoes sliced thick so the dressing could permeate the entire tomato…just a wish list however.Special Features:
- Great service and the foodOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/1/2014Great service and the food was exceptional. We had the romaine salad, asparagus and sea bass.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- LikeitservedLikeitservedDined on 3/29/2014Waiter was attentive and gave us menus immediately along with the nights add on to the menu and encouraging sharing. The tomato and onion salas was outstanding as was the lettuce wedge. Hamburger, sweet potato fries, and sea bass were all winners. Chicken and ribs were overlooked. Chicken pot pie was enormous with a flaky crust. Short ribs were were appetizing. We would have ordered the apple pie for dessert but we were all full. We will return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Never dissapointingFan1Dined on 3/21/2014This is our favorite restaurant in the desert...one menu card, but everything you would want and everything is great! Great area for jazz, piano, and entertainment. Top Notch! We take our guests there often.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- way too noisy... priceycrawfDined on 3/21/2014We had to shout across the round table to hear each other. And we're not seniors who may be hard of hearing ! Meat Entrees are just that... meat. All sides are $10 each, and not big. Would not recommend the dining room, too noisy and overpriced. I would however, recommend the Piano Bar.
- Awesome band and great foodFineDinerVIPDined on 3/16/2014My husband and I tried this place because the reviews spoke about such great music.... They were great! But the food was too. I had the grilled pork chop and my husband had the ribs and chicken. There was enough for us to have three dinners! And the prices were reasonable. Our server was very nice.Special Features:
- Vicky's Vamos!WisconsinDined on 3/16/2014Part of what we look forward to in returning each year to the Indian Wells BNP Parbis tournament is having dinner and enjoying an evening at Vicky's of Santa Fe's piano bar. We thought the food was memorable once again and John Stanley King and his band a perfect close to a perfect week! Thank youSpecial Features:
- DissapointedEAM56Dined on 3/14/2014We made a reservation for Vicky's and were greeted at the door just fine..no wait and were seated promptly. Our service started well with drinks, bread and appetizers provided promptly. After appetizers were served, it was 30 min before dinner arrived. No offer of another round of drinks between appetizers and dinner. finally when dinner was served, it was cold. My wife ate her cold scallops but I rejected the cold meatloaf and mashed potatoes. I did not bother getting a replacement dinner but asked for another drink which came 20 minutes later which I left partially consumed on the table. The server graciously took my entre off the check but no offer of free drink or anything else. She acted as if she was doing us a favor. Really? C'mon.
- 60 plus crowdOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/13/2014The food is large portion enough for sharing . The decor is very pretty but the crowd is way older. They have a piano bar but is all oldies music , We took my parents there they are in their 70s and they loved it!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PIANIST DOUG MONTGOMERYFredDined on 3/8/2014Wish we had more "supper clubs" with a wonderful pianist like Doug Montgomery! Was the piano a Bosendorfer? It reslly sounded swell.Special Features:
- Excellent shrimpTSYENGDined on 3/8/2014The food was very good - prepared to perfection, especially the shrimp I ordered. I LOVED the piano room where Doug, who is a virtuoso at the piano, plays. Doug is a definitely PLUS to your establishment. I would not have come if I had not heard about Doug!! He's a keeper.Special Features:
- Vicy's is consistentBitsyDined on 3/8/2014The above is always true and in every category. Friendly & timely service. Excellent food with a simple but tasty menu of options. Unique specials like Trout. Wonderfully generous martini's. Cant go wrong with this place and you can tell by the consistent crowds.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
