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. Cocktails were spot on and the food was outstanding. I always recommend our waitress we had with long legs and long brown hair. We always request her... More

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

Michel's is a comfortable, cozy place to dine or have a drink. All the locals seem to know Michel and they love their connection to him and the the place. The service is very professional and for the most part the food is very well prepared. But don't expect a fantastic meal. Any discussion can begin and end with the... More

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
