We recently hosted a rehearsal dinner at Christies. We are from Pennsylvania so had to rely on other peoples recommendations. The food and service was excellent. We had 37 people and the restaurant was crowded with other patrons so the service could have been slow but it wasn't. They took care of chilling the beer and wine and the dessert... More

We are never disappointed and recently had a party there for our son and everyone loved the food and atmosphere. We will be back again very soon as it is becoming our go... More

Noise aside, a quality bring your own Italian restaurant. Bread to start, warm and crunchy. Mozzarella special as an app, delicious. I had the seafood fra diavolo, my wife had the Chilean sea bass. Can't say enough about the meal. A bit on the expensive side but worth the occasional treat.

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!

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.

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
