The food here is always good but the restaurant seems just a bit dated. The service is a bit stilted-as if they feel you are privileged to eat at their establishment instead of the other way around. Still a great place. Just needs to refurbish...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!
