We were staying across the street at the Indian Wells Resort Hotel and decided to give Vicky's a try.

We were seated promptly upon arriving and our server was very friendly. However, all food items were pricey and not so great, as follows:

Poke appetizer - good quality ingredients, but lacking in flavor. The dish needed more wasabi or some soy sauce.

Pear salad - poached pears were too soft and flavorless. The salad was served with too much dressing.

Steak - also rather flavorless and under-cooked.

Overall, the experience felt corporate. The decor is pleasant and the service good enough, but the food was very mediocre for the price.

Go to Mimmo's instead - full of spirit, homey atmosphere, caring staff and truly excellent food.

They seated us at the worst possible table we could imagine, the menu was not a good menu and the service was worse than Applebee’s, we walked out before ordering

This was our first visit to Vicky’s , we had an 8 pm Rez. And arrived on time at about 7:55pm. The bar was very crowded and people were waiting everywhere. It was a quite busy evening. I was afraid we’d be asked to wait but we were seated exactly at 8. Our waitress Melody, I believe, was very friendly and helpful. We started with calamari, had 2 different salad, both were great. I ended up having Rack of Lamb and it was very very good. My partner had the Veal Chop, it was large and looked delicious. We enjoyed our meal immensely and can’t wait to come back soon. There was a nice bread service and Cocktails were great. Bar has live music nightly and was quite bopping. Yet the noise level in the Restaurant was not terrible.

We did not make this reservation because it was Valentines Day. We were just going to be in the area. Very slow to seat us, server was rude, and we had not been informed as to the planned prefixe menu which did not meet some of our dietary restrictions. Terrible place!

We were there at Vicky’s for Valentines Day. They had a special fixed menu with four entree choices The kitchen is open, our table was in the main dining room, so it was very noisy but I’ve been before, sitting in the back dining room and that’s not the case. They were busy so the service was a little slow but the food was fabulous!!! We had a party of four and ordered three of the four choices, the filet, sea bass, and scallops—it was all amazing!!

We made reservations on Open Table. No mention was noted that a Valentines Day menu would be substituted for the full menu. However when I tried to speak to the manager about the gap or hole in the information process. He said he was to busy to talk, and it was the way it was. So I take it from his cold arrogant attitude they don’t want or need my business.

We sat in the lounge for the entertainment and the room was quite full. There were only two waitstaff to service the whole room which was not enough and the service was terrible - wait person extremely delayed at every step, waitperson spilled drink and we sat there for 10 minutes before she brought back a stack of napkins and handed them to me to clean it up - she spilled the drink and expected me to clean it up even after I asked her to, she did not offer to replace the spilled drink, I had to tell her to do so, food was below average in quality, etc, etc. This was my first time at Vicky's of Santa Fe and I will never go back.

The food was excellent, as was the service. The atmosphere was conducive to conversation. Ribs are offered on Wednesdays as one of the specials. They were cooked to perfection and the sauce was excellent.

Reception host was friendly our Reservations were for 7:15 pm got seated at 7:32 pm.
We got there early at 6:45 pm they said they could not seat us but they could at 7:15 pm.
Seated at a corner table where everyone was coming and going. Next to server station. Filets were under seasoned no salt. The pot pie while a wonderful presentation the chicken was bland the sauce was like soup no flavor also. The pie crust on top was perfect color but undercooked raw pastry dough.
Our server was very good. Our wine the prisoner was priced very well.
We had a few choices for dinner. We are from out of town and decided on Vickies from Santa Fe. Next time we will skip this place.

Service slow, seemed like our table was the only one our server had in that area, like her station was elsewhere in the restaurant. Food was very good, green beans could use some seasoning, they were just steamed and dry. Garlic butter very good, entrees very good. Would come back but not as a first choice.

This is always my go to restaurant when visiting Palm Springs. The food never disappoints, the atmosphere is fun and the service is top notch. Even the valet work their tails off so you’re never waiting long. The most difficult part of coming here is deciding what to eat.

I had said it was our anniversary when we booked on open table but it was not mentioned at all to us.

Very disappointing. Food moderate but they brought out our main course before we finished our first. Music moderate, gloomy atmosphere in dining room, bar livelier.

We will not return due to extremely loud environment. Food and service were wonderful, however, there are other excellent restaurant’s in the Desert where you can carry on a conversation without having to strain to hear others’s definitely a turn off!

Came to Vicky’s with my tennis group in 1989 for the first time, followed at least once a year to take friends and family when we visited Palm Desert. Tuesday my husband and I celebrated the closing of our home purchase and the food is now the same great quality as in 1989.

The two owners, Mark & Marc are both service & attention to detail oriented! All their hard work definitely pays off, as witnessed by, their entire staff, including the valet service.
Hilda at the front desk is always so pleasant with a terrific smile, as she welcomes you into the restaurant! A real joy!
As always, the food is amazing & the service impeccable!
Needless to say Vicky's is one of our desert favorites
Don't miss this fun-filled restaurant!

Great food but wish we could have heard music in dining area. After dinner we went to the lounge to listen to group playing but had to stand as no seating available.

Hurried us thru dinner, served entree before we finished our salads. Probably would not recommend the place for the weekend.

To be honest, we will not be back....the restaurant is far too noisy for us. We had to wait
for our reservation to be seated, which is annoying. We could not converse with our friends
because of the din of noise.
