Vicky's of Santa Fe Restaurant Review: It's easy to spot Vicky's of Santa Fe as you're motoring down Highway 111 --- simply look for the fleet of luminarias that line its flat rooftop. A favorite dining destination since 1989, this eatery manages to maintain a contemporary feel. The warm, colorful restaurant features adobe architecture and Native American accents and art. The straightforward menu includes steaks, chops and fish, all in more than ample portions. Reservations are recommended, but you can take your chances and wait in the bar if nothing is immediately available. The food is less than gourmet, but the fish tends to be reliable and quite reasonably priced. As for other entrées, simple dishes such as chicken potpie are more consistent than some of the ambitious offerings. The ahi stack is listed as a starter, but could easily be an entrée for those with a smaller appetite. Songstresses such as Debby Boone and Sally Kellerman stop by to perform during Vicky's Jazz Dinner Concert series. Otherwise, you can always enjoy the live pianist while sipping and supping.
