Nothing to write home about.

Typical strip mall Italian food. Appetizers were OK and the entree was served heat lamp warm. I was with a party and the feeling was mutual across the board. There is better Italian food in Howell.

We have been here many times in the past but not recently. The waitress was excellent and helpful with our choices. The restaurant has a cozy and comfortable feel to it. The food was delicious. Plan to return more often in the future.

HORRIBLE! My latest experience with Christie's is them giving away my sons Communion luncheon reservation to a larger party without contacting me first. I made the reservation in August (10 months in advance) and when I went back to give my deposit they told me that the owner, Rosario, gave my reservation away! At this point I am stuck without...

Four couples, one person with strict dietary needs, everyone exceptionally pleased. BYOB, makes it that much more attractive. Food was above most other Italian restaurants in the immediate area. Plenty of parking since it is in a strip mall adjacent to Howell Bowling Lanes on Route 9 South. Service was excellent and we will return!

Dined there on a Tuesday night (7pm reservations) in the summer and the place was pretty empty. That's OK with me - if it was full I think the noise level would have been too high for me - but that's me! Very nice decor - you wouldn't know you were in the corner of a strip mall on a... More

We have not been to Christies since they opened maybe 15 years ago. Went today, for lunch. Nice place, good staff. There is a lot of food so don't bother with appetizers. Semi-dressy, which is why we didn't go in the one time we might have 15 years ago. Food is mostly seafood and lots of it. I had the... More

So today is Mother's Day and I booked reservations for my mother, father, and sister to go to Christie's. We go every year and we have never had a problem. A family problem arose and we changed our reservation from 4:30 to 6:30. At 4:35 my mom gets a rude call saying that our reservation was at 4:30. Before I... More

Do you like bread crumbs on a half shell? Cold pasta under a Seafood fra Diavolo? Stale bread? A mouthful of flour on your chicken? How about an inattentive wait staff? Then this is THE PLACE for you. Enough said?
