“Nice Restaurant and a Great Serious Piano Lounge with Doug Montgomery performing!!!”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Vicky's of Santa Fe is located in Indian Wells, CA in a very nice southwestern style building with nice decor.....
The restaurant menu is good and we were back for dinner twice in a week. We had good service, drinks and food. The value for the money was worth it.
The piano lounge with Doug Montgomery performing may be the best in the country. His shows are really good! He has talent and showmanship, which are a good combination. Doug's wife Denise originally from South Dakota is very nice too.
Doug performs at Vick's of Santa Fe in Indian Wells, CA from about the middle of February to about about Memorial Day when he returns to Santa Fe, NM to perform at Vanessie's. We stopped to enjoy the show 4 nights during the week (dinner twice) of February 20, 2012.
We highly recommend Vicky's and Doug Montgomery for a very nice evening.

“Average steak house with limited wine list”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

We heard that Vicky's was the best place for a steak/meat based dinner. Although the service was good, the food was underwhelming. I had a the veal and my husband the New York. We heard that the seasoning was minimized to appease the local "mature" crowd but both were seasoned nicely enough for the flavor of the meat to come through. I'm not sure why there was a dress code enforcing sign at the entrance (both my husband and I were way overdressed compared with 95% of the crowd that were in jeans and t-shirts). The dining area where we were seated (in front of the kitchen) is very casual and not deserving of a dress code. I was surprised at the wine list. A nice Chianti or Brunello would've been nice...

“Great Steaks & Great Service”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

We eat twice at Vickies while on our recent family trip with a group of (11). The food was perfect. Great steaks. Our servers went out of their way and always were there in advance to cater to your needs. Relaxed yet elegant setting, you almost feel like you are alone in your own world while in a resturant full of people.

“A Local Favorite”
Reviewed 17 December 2011

Vicky's of Santa Fe is an excellent place to go for food and for entertainment. The dining room menu is comprehensive and always good. We like to share a salad or appetizer and the staff gladly splits it in the kitchen. The bar menu is inexpensive and a good choice for a light meal. The entertainment is great, especially the Sunday afternoon jazz performances. Service is friendly and attentive.
