We recently had the good fortune to have dined at this first-rate French restaurant We shared our 2 appetizers, the gaspacho soup (delicious) and the escargots(good, not one of the best we've had). It was, however, the main course dish that riveted out total attention: the sautéed chicken breast with a morel mushroom cream sauce!!!! These were flavors that are... More

The best cocktails in town. A Cosmo and their pomme frites! Can't go wrong! I had trout which was delicious. Also the people watching is great. Always fun to see how the upper crust of Sun Valley lives!

The first thing you notice on entering is how busy it is which is always a good sign especially when they all seem to be regulars. There is a cosy bar area, an interior room and a very nice courtyard. We sat in the courtyard which was very pleasant. We split awesome crispy pomme frites with a cocktail followed by... More

Our experience dining at Christiania's was absolutely terrible. It all started with the hostess who couldn't find our reservation in her book and made us feel like we were trying to cheat ourselves in their supposed "classy" establishment. We had reserved a table for 8:30 on the terrace, and in spite of having room to accommodate us, the hostess said... More

This food is so delicious to enjoy you need to relax and enjoy the experience. Michel is french and the flavors he brings to the table are to be savored. The chef uses morel mushrooms, truffle oil, wines to combine with fine meat, fish. Very special cooking......do not rush the experience. He always has mussels and clams that are uniquely... More

A relaxed bar scene with stools for less than dozen and a few tables near the bar for drinks and/or dinner. However, the main diningroom, down a couple of steps is very attractive with a marvelous outdoor garden for dining as well. The drinks are generous and the wine list offers a good variety of bottles or by the glass.... More

Ate here multiple times over the July 4th weekend. Food was great. Service was great. Ambiance was great. I dined solo so grabbed a seat at the bar each night. Michel's fills up early at the bar so keep that in mind if you visit. For entries on this trip I did their signature chicken with morel sauce; NY Strip;... More
