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.

This is a very fine restaurant. We sat in a patio with a fountain in the middle. All tables were occupied, but the atmosphere was quiet and refined, without being overly formal. Our waitress, who looked Japanese American, was superb. She was friendly, charming, and attentive, while at the same time giving the impression of a seasoned professional. The food... More

My sisters and I came here for my birthday - it was our first time and will definitely not be our last. Everything was perfect. We ate outdoors, which was delightful. Everything about our meal was outstanding. My sister and I shared an asparagus and mushroom appetizer that had a light puff pastry on top - outstanding. My other sister... More

My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our first wedding anniversary with a phenomenal dinner at Michel's (not to be confused with the other Ketchum eatery, the Tuscan "Christina's"). We thoroughly sampled the menu--mussels perfectly cooked for appetizer, salads, trout entree, and cream puffs for dessert. Great wine list. Fun to see all the cool ski memorabilia. Staff is very "French"... More
