Mussels good as Brussels!

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. 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
