Indian Wells' award-winning restaurant, noted for its outstanding American cuisine, has been consistently awarded "Best Hot Spot" and "Best Live Music Venue" by OpenTable.

Since 1989, Indian Wells' premier restaurant continues to be the place for cocktails, dinner, live music, and nightlife. Vicky's of Santa Fe is a place where everyone knows your name. Owner Marc Laliberte likes to say, "It's not just the place. It's the people. Our guests become friends and family." A menu of prime steaks, fresh seafood, rack of lamb, and pork chops can pair with any number of savory sides, such as our classic twice-baked potato. A walk-in wine cellar features volumes of California wines from well-known winemakers to select boutique vintners. At the spacious center bar, signature cocktails shake up through the night. Entertainment abounds in the Lounge Room with a live music program overseen by desert legend John Stanley King. Electrifying performances with no cover charge every single

The entertainment from 5-6:30 was very good. At that point they turned on the
taped music whichwas very loud and annoying. At that time they were also
setting for the next musician's and between them playing practice notes and
the taped music noise level was horrible!

We were celebrating my birthday dinner and enjoying a special night out at Vicky's of Santa Fe. I ordered the fresh fish of the day, Sea Bass, prepared with a Thai coconut sauce and crusted with Macadamia nuts. It was delicious, so flaky and tender and the sauce was not heavy. My bf ordered a NY Steak and it was cooked to perfection. Our sides were a baked potato which is big enough for two people and steamed asparagus. I thought the portions were very generous for such fine dining.

We ate in the lounge at a high top table so that we could also enjoy the live music. I would definitely go back to Vicky's again for dinner.

This was our first visit to Vicky's of Santa Fe. We were seated promptly. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Our server was attentive but not overly. My filet was cooked perfectly. The tiger shrimp was fabulous! Very crisp coating, but not overcooked. We would definitely return.

The food was very mediocre. For the cost of the meal I was expecting much better quality. All of the meals, with the exception of the sand dabs, were very underwhelming. We will not be back.

Servers bored without tables should not stand and stare at people eating. It was like a vulture waiting to move in on carrion.
Way overpriced for what it is. The fancy decor doesn’t change anything about food or service, it just seemed to raise the prices

Such a disappointment. The service was so slow and the staff was clearly under pressure. The food was just OK. We have had better experiences here. The brussels sprouts were the highlight of the evening. The medium well steak was still bloody and the Seabass was dry.

Food was acceptable. Server knew the menu well but didn’t know how to open a bottle of wine and didn’t take the foil off only bent it into the bottle then proceeded to pour. Nice fella but someone should educate the staff. It was not a romantic atmosphere to celebrate our anniversary. Too loud although we were seated at the back of the restaurant. Wrong scene for the occasion

Halibut was tasty, though potatoes had the taste of old grease. All else was fine, though we had premium seating we’re still unable to be in the room with the band.

Loved the entertainment! Food was fair. The only disappointment (not so big) was that their website & here, on Open Table, their wine list needs to be updated. We love good wines so for being our first time here, their wine list caught our attention! However, to our somewhst surprise, the wines brands they actually had were maybe 1/3 of what was listed. So if you’re a big wine connoisseur & like what you see on their internet menu, don’t be surprised.
