    Had a fun evening and enjoyed JSK and his great musical band of artist. Like everything else in todays world, prices are skyrocketing... Couldn't believe how expensive our final tab for four turned out to be but what we ordered was good.

    I was very disappointed with Vicky’s in Rancho Mirage. My wife and I were looking for somewhere to get a dinner after a long day driving around the valley, our hotel was only down the road from Vick’s and the menu looked okay. We had a reservation and on arrival we were place in a back section away from the band which at first I thought would be a good thing unfortunately we were in a section that was mainly ignored by staff and without any atmosphere. The family next to us were letting their child listen to their iPhone without headphone and not paying any attention to them or enforcing any level of reasonable behavior. We complained to the server but it was obvious that she didn’t care and would do anything about it. The food was okay but the atmosphere in there and the attitude will mean I will never return.

    The fried calamari was nothing spectacular. When we asked the server about a wine suggestion he was clearly not knowledgeable and needed to ask someone else. I. The end the wine choice was more watery than full bodied. Steak and Lamb were excellently prepared. Lobster Ravioli were a bit overloaded with vegetables and cheese and took away from the main part of the dish. Skipped dessert.

    Our first time to Vicky's was outstanding!! The Ahi stack was superb, fresh and light with an added layer of chopped Mango! Every bit as good as the ahi appetizers we had in Maui!! We shared a Caesar salad, delish and tangy and the main dinner of Chilean Sae bass was fabulous! We will be returning when they reopen in September!! Thank you Vicky's!!

    Food was good, but the service was beyond awful. For some reason, our server had a problem with us. I honestly don't know why, as we were happy and enjoying our vacation. It was our second time there, but our last. I'll find somewhere else to spend my money...somewhere where the customer is treated respectfully.

    Food Was excellent, unfortunately we were sat at the entrance between the Bar and the East dining room, just to the right of the main doors. It was very warm. Between the Bar noise and the Band, the noise was funneled straight through the entire restaurant and with people yelling over the music it wasn’t great. We will return and try to be seated in a different area.

    My companion and I went to Vicky’s and really enjoyed it. I just recently moved to SoCal and wanted to give it a try . Parking was easy, we were seated quickly for our reservation . The food from the appetizer to desert was delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the music from the featured band was fun and had people out of their seats. The sound wasn’t too loud you couldn’t talk and it was a good time. Will definitely go back.

    Very busy Friday night. Live music in the lounge. Service was busy but appropriately attentive. Food is not very creative. Ahi tower appetizer lacked flavor and have minimal wasabi sauce. Rack of lamb was served with mint jelly and no other sauce to enhance the flavor. Everything was served at the appropriate temperature. Wine list had some nice options. Definitely not a "fit for foodie",

    Our wait-person Ann was a lot of fun and engaging. Liked her a lot. I had requested a nice table away from music in a no traffic area..really disappointed we sat alongside a wall as waiters and busboys walked in front of us all night. It was our Anniversary. Really disappointed after requesting a quiet low traffic table on two seperate occasions. Veal chop was excellent. No sand dabs available. Sand dabs was one of the reasons we came to Vicky's. Ordered the Scallops and they were a little dry and fair at best. We're going back to be a part of the bar and music scene. That looked great. Noise level is high.
