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

Wish I had sat closer to the bar near the music. The Moscow mule was delicious but the salad was average to boring.

Not sure what happened here. We heard great things about this restaurant. But, food didn’t come out together. Twice baked arrived before the steak. Server took Olin back brought them back 10 minutes later. Only the potato must have sat out as it was cold. Steak not prepared as ordered. Overall, disappointing

Fish dishes were not fresh tasting . Do not go there for quality of food but rather to listen to music.

The best restaurant in all of Palm Dessert. The food is always delicious and the live entertainment makes the dining experience all that much better. Every time I come to Palm Springs this is the first place I go to.

This was our second time here. Our server Carolina was amazing and remembered my family from our visit 9 months ago. She took great care of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our food. The rib eye was one of the best we have had in many years.

We were disappointed that there was no music, having called ahead around five to specifically ask, and we were told the music would start at seven. When we got there there was a fundraiser finishing up. We had our dinner, and then I ordered another glass of wine to take over to enjoy the music. However, there was nothing going on in that room, and one of the servers told me music was “subject to change“, however I didn’t think that meant within several hours of me calling, I’m sure that was already known. So I ended up leaving my entire second glass of wine in the bar as we left. 😳

We had not gone to this restaurant for the 4+ years we've lived here. We were all pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food! We had read that it had nice atmosphere with the live music, but the food was only so so. Well, food and service was GREAT and we will go there again!

Very unfriendly environment. We were met at the door by a hostess who offered no warm greeting, no smile. Her greeting to us was, do you have reservations and how many? She led us to our seats and turned around and walked away. The food was very good and the wine was good and priced right. But, when it was all over, we paid our $100.00 tab and left a $20 tip and did not get a thank you or a good bye.
This was our 4th and final visit to Vicky's.

Overall we really like Vicky's but unfortunately we ordered the special Fried Chicken, which was less than what one would expect from a good restaurant. Disappointing because their specials including the Sea Bass and short Ribs are outstanding.

What an awesome experience at Vicky's. My wife and I celebrated our 10 th wedding anniversary at Vicky's. I had contacted the restaurant prior to our dinner date there and with special request to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant did not disappoint. They had contacted me prior to our dinner just to confirm my request and also to add a couple suggestions to help with our celebration. We arrived for our dinner and wow!! We were not disappointed. They exceeded my expectations and made it a memorable evening for me and my wife. We will be back. Thank you Vicky's of Santa Fe. Thank you!!

Our server, Ann, was pleasant and friendly, but botched our order, forgetting to tell the kitchen we wanted a side dish of creamed spinach. We both ordered the halibut special, and were disappointed because the fish was overcooked and on the dry side. Overall we were disappointed with the meal.

We had a marvelous evening celebrating a family birthday. They were so accommodating seating us in the lounge to hear the music as I requested. The complimentary dessert for my son’s birthday was above expectation. We love Vicky’s. It’s our go to place for a wonderful time. Thank you !

Food and server were good. Hostess was rude and didn't ask if we would like to sit in the room with music. A therapy dog was seated at the table next to us and the dog begged and roamed as far as it could on the leash and was not asked by the trainer to settle down. The trainer was not asked by the staff to control dog. Music was not at 6:00 as advertised.
