The selections were great: something for everyone. There is a definite French influence. Specials will vary with seasonal ingredients. This was a pleasant surprise: I figured that something that's been around this long would be complacent, but the service and food are a real treat. Enjoy this Ketchum institution!

This by far the most reliable restaurant in the Sun Valley area, both for the quality of the food and the service. After living in the area for over 17 years, we've tried every other restaurant, and more often than not have been disappointed. Michel's Christiana delivers good meals, well prepared, by servers who know what good service means. We... More

You can depend on Michel Christiania's to always do it right. Lovely setting, perfectly cooked contemporary french food. Never a complaint. Totally worth visiting. The outside of the building is a bit dated but not to worry, once inside you will fall in love and want to return again and again.

My boyfriend and I were on a Hemingway haunt checking out his faves in ketchum, and came here as it was allegedly one if his faves. Upon further research I found that you can actually reserve the "Hemingway booth" which he sat in. We were thrilled. We were there for a soup to nuts meal and our waiter was cool... More

Up in the mountains in Sun Valley is this fine French cuisine. Lovely patio and indoor seating. Friendly service. I ate delicious modules frites last week , great bread to mop up the broth. House wine delicious also. Large portions

Used to love Michel's and brought a friend here on a recent trip to Ketchum. The place was packed, we waited about 10 minutes before we were approached but then we were seated promptly. The food felt like it had been mostly pre-plated or pre-cooked as a way to get the food out of the kitchen on the busy night.... More

We splurged and had a fun birthday weekend dinner with three couples. The food here is always top notch. The ladies enjoyed the blood orange cocktail special, and with dinner we enjoyed a moderately priced 2011 Napa Valley Zinfandel from the Green & Red Vineyards. Very nice. Salads and French onion soup were appetizers around the table. I can't eat... More

This is a restaurant w/a long histgory. We dined w/Michel on Saturday evening during the fall jazz festival. For a number of years, Michel's cousin comes in from France w/his traditional jazz group & plays; so this was a nice bit of entertainment. We learned of this when making reservations when we mentioned that we wished a quiet table. This... More

Love the Mussels-a-Go-Go and frites! Fresh and delicious and a little like being in France! There's lots of fun people - locals and visitors. Lots of history and right in the middle of town. A must-go for anyone.
