Join us for the start of out 32nd Season. Re-open on Thursday, September 17th, 2020 for Outdoor Dining & 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.

Considering the COVID-19 and outside dining (105 temperature), our overall experience was good. Vickys created a created a ambience and had enough air fans to keep us comfortable. The food was great.

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.

Service was excellent and they had a 50% off on wine. We ordered the $29 Special and both ordered Salmon which was excellent.
Only downside is the noise level although the side room next to the main restaurant was was much better.

The food is a la carte so the price of the meal adds up quickly. Our meals were very good but the service does need to improve.

We have had many pleasant experiences at Vicky's bar, and had small plates that were very good. This visit we sat in the dining room. Beyond the "social distancing" requirements, I don't think we will eat in their dining area again. It's just not very appealing and looks tired and dated. The food this time was a mix. We both decided on the special, $29 per person dinner which included salad, entree and desert. Great value; however, the chicken my husband had was overcooked and without much seasoning. My 3 lamb chops were cooked to my liking and were seasoned. Overall, I suggest Vicky's of Santa Fe for bar bites or, sit in the lounge area where nightly performers appear. You may order bar bites there, too.

We dined at Vicky's on Thursday evening. One of us ordered the rib special and the other the sand dabs. Both were excellent. The ribs were lean and plentiful. The sand dab portion was large. It was served piccata style. Delicious. The restaurant is following social distancing and safety regulations; we felt safe. Service was attentive.

Lamb & wine special was very good. Chicken was very Good as well. Good portions. J For their nightly entertainment you have to request your table in the bar area. Otherwise you get seated in the restaurant area and cannot hear it.

It was so nice to dine out, again, and this was a fabulous place to go! Started with the beet salad...delicious!...and enough to share for a starter. One entree was the battered shrimp which are always amazing! Also had the sea bass special...fantastic! Brussel sprouts for a side...definitely enough to share!
Great service made it a perfect evening!

It was our first indoor dining experience since cov-id 19, and we were more than pleasantly surprised. I believe the main reason for our excellent dining experience
was our waitress Cindy, who took excellent care of us.

Vicky's is taking all precautions to keep guests safe. Tables are appropriately distanced and servers were cautious. The menu has been expanded from the curb-side pick up offered during their closure. Live music has returned. Food was excellent, as always.

Our waitress informed us that it has been very slow since they reopened. Saturday night they had a really bad turnout for dining in the restaurant a lot more customers than they anticipated. Have they no one that was going to be this busy they would have had more servers come in ahead of time. It was worth the wait though, all of the food was fantastic. Cooked to perfection. Very delicious meal.

Our 1st time, even though we heard it was good. Was concerned about noise, but we were in the back room & it was fine. We ordered 2 of the specials, Chilean sea bass & the short ribs. Also a steak. Everyone was happy with their meal & our server, Diana was great. We will be back.
