We were lucky enough to snag a reservation for Valentine's Day. The service was great, the food outstanding, and the atmosphere romantic and interesting. The gift of a rose for my wife on leaving was a nice touch. The only caveat is that the room...More

Without a doubt one of the best restaurants in SV. The escargot was outstanding. The trout and salmon perfectly cooked. The carpaccio and foie gras melted in your mouth. They do not accept large parties and reservations are hard to come by. The walk in...More

Michel's Christiana continues to consistently deliver the best dining experience in the Valley. The room, designed by Seattle architect Roland Terry, is a mid-century dream. The bar area - look, ambiance, service, and beverage - is top. Not to be missed!

All I can say is the staff were wonderful, the trout the best I have ever had, and the bartender makes a great nagroni!

The restaurant was already highly rated with rave reviews and they were right! An easy walk to location in town but make sure to make reservations! They do have outside seating as well, and once we arrived we would have chosen that if it were...More

It's larger than any other restaurant we visited in Ketchum and I kept getting the feeling that everything was done in advance. My lamb shank was not hot. The French onion soup was not savory. The Caesar salad was below average for a nice restaurant...More
