Now Open for Outdoor Dining and Takeout Curbside Pickup.

The challenges of 2020 made Vicky’s of Santa Fe better, but their 32 years of experience have made them great. 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. The Dinner Menu offers choices of prime steaks, fresh seafood, pork chops and rack of lamb that can pair with any number of savory sides, such as a twice-baked potato or classic mac ’n’ cheese. A variety of lighter options, from an ahi tuna stack to locally sourced bacon wrapped stuffed dates, satisfy smaller appetites while the chef’s nightly specials please the entire crowd. Vicky’s walk-in wine cellar features California vintners from the well-known to the boutique. Live Music every night will be returning soon.

Have a little time before Parker and the kids come over...poor Kim has to work!
We're having a simple dinner tonite...a roast (David's bbqing it though) and roasted potatoes..not our usual turkey dinner.
And never know what the kids will eat...probably some pasta!

Val you're doing fabulous on this one....A+!!!
Wasn't there another sister though........Sally...the youngest? And do you remember what Nona's Mom did? (extra credit)

Think Lenore and Bill did go out!
I know...I don't get that about the sanitary napkin either...but remembering she brought it down in a paper bag?

The new outdoor dining is very inviting. A musician entertained in the background. The lighting made the atmosphere festive yet intimate. The Wednesday evening fried chicken special was a hit at our table, as were the sand dabs and the pork chop. Portions were plentiful. Service was friendly and attentive.

Just had our first dining experience at Vicky's of Santa Fe and it was wonderful. Can't wait to return. Food, ambiance (patio seating), service and dinner music were all spot on. My husband and I both had the sand dabs and really enjoyed them.

Guys, we know everyone is struggling.
We didn’t eat the two orders of Brussel sprouts because they were soggy and soaked in sweet and sour sauce. No one asked why we didn’t eat or want them.
Service was OK...not great. Had to hunt for someone to bring pepper and a glass of wine took 10 minutes to deliver.
Dined at your restaurant many times pre-CV and was never disappointed.
Was disappointed tonight, which was the 2nd time since partial reopening.
Hope you are able to make it work

We were pleasantly surprised with our outdoor dining. The ambiance was great and they turned the valet area into a nice place to dine outside. They had 2 musicians playing during dinner which made it very enjoyable. The menu seemed limited and was bummed we could not order off of the bar menu. We will go back as it was nice to leave the house and have good food in an appealing atmosphere.

We were nicely surprised by the perfect atmosphere!!
The huge patio improv is beautiful! The lighting was very pretty.
There was a band that we were delighted to hear, it was just the right loudness you enjoy yet be able to talk to my friends.
The food and cocktails were wonderful! Five stars for sure!! Beccs

Lovely outdoor dining with a live band providing nice dinner music. The patio dining was pretty full so we were seated in the courtyard. All to ourselves! Totally Covid safe! Now. The meal! Wow! Husband had the most beautiful scallops. I had the sand dabs. Also excellent! Started with an ahi tuna stack. Beautifully presented!

Wonderful service and the live music was very enjoyable. We felt they did the best they could to make our COVID dining experience safe and comfortable. The gin martinis were perfect! Cold, full and strong! My husband ordered the scallops with a side of creamed spinach, both were delicious. I ordered a cheeseburger. The fries were great but the burger was bland and not juicy. It was just average. The overall experience was very good and we would definitely go back!

This was my first time at Vicky's of Santa Fe, and I have to say I was disappointed. The food was just ok. I ordered the Rack of Lamb, and it was under seasoned, over cooked to what I had ordered and was delivered warm, not hot. I also ordered the baked potato, and although it tasted good, it too was delivered warm.
I find that if you send items back to the kitchen, they usually come back over cooked, so I didn't bother.

Restaurant was nice and had a quiet vibe. Server was really nice. Food took forever about an hour and we got a dry pork chop and bland artichoke. Sides of gratin potatoes and Brussels sprouts were good.

The food was very good and so was the service. The only thing is that the place could use some freshing up as it looks dated.
Overall we had a good time.

Food was excellent. Had the lack of lamb and it was perfectly prepared. With the exception of the brussel sprouts which had a touch too much of a vinegar profile, the other sides were excellent. Had the creamed spinach, and sauted mushrooms. The apple pie for desert was outrageous and tasty.

Realize they just reopened, and had not visited prior to Covid, but wasn’t impressed. Noisy super tiny table in a doorway. Loud fan. Food was way overpriced. Menu was limited and nothing special. Would not return.

Everything went well. Food, Diane our server were excellent. Only problem, entry into the bar area No one wearing masks, no separation between groups. It was scary! Good thing the dining room was safely prepared. We would have left otherwise. We hope when you reopen in the fall you take better precautions in the entry/bar area enforcing distancing. Your a Class restaurant, please do better.
