Lovely Restaurant

This is one of my favorites in Sun Valley. A great spot for a nice dinner. Everything I've had has been good. They have a great wine list and I always order the French Onion Soup.

I have family that comes out to Sun Valley several times a year and has always said great things about Michel's. This time out to visit we decided to give it a shot and I was incredibly unimpressed. I got the steak tartare and the salade d'endive, both of which were good, but my companions weren't so lucky. One person... More

I love this restaurant. It is a long time establishment in Ketchum. Reservations are hard to get but sitting at the bar is always fun with the locals.

A must stop if your are in Ketchum, French cuisine but done masterfully. Very romantic and pricey but well worth it. I would not try to get in without reservations.

I have been going to Michel's for over 15 years and have been a big fan of a nice traditional resort restaurant. Tonight was a disaster. We had a table of three in the bar. We order steamed clams and their famous $20 truffle burger. Waitress was testy. We waited and waited and waited. The food finally arrived -- clams... More

Get to this restaurant by 6 pm on Thursdays and score a great deal! Unlimited mussels w/pommes -frites!!! Great deal in an exceptional restaurant---can go later depending on time of year. Other menu items also excellent! Ask for Hemingway's table if you're only 2! Bar seating also very good.

This attractive ski chalet appearing restaurant has wonderful creative cuisine offerings. The waiters were attentive and worked with the chef to accommodate some vegan members of our party. They had some enticing menu selections and we found the Ruby red trout to be fresh and very adequate filling most of the plate. Salads and desserts had equal difficult selections to... More

The Christiania has been around for years and has always had excellent food in a beautiful setting. My wife and I had not been there for several years and went there for a special occasion. We were not disappointed, in fact we were doubly pleased. As you step in out of the cold, you are warmed by crackling fire. The... More

I had a group of friends come in from out of town to have a nice meal. We had a very knowledge, nice and not to mention beautiful waitress who gave amazing service.

Fresh, local and wonderful. The beauty of the food is worthy seeing alone. The fresh bakery case is filled with lots of wonderful cheese, meets, and treats. It pricey so be prepared but the food is worth it. We shared an amazing salad with beets, caramelized nuts and fruit and the daily panini special. The panini had wonderful cheeses, arugula... More
