I had a good experience at Michel's Christiania. The place had a good vibe...better rthan I expected. The Idaho Trout was delicious. The server could not have been nicer or more attentive. I'll be back...maybe tonight.

Come to Michel's for a fine dining experience in Sun Valley. It is also a great place to stop in for a glass of wine before dinner.

Had a pre-Christmas dinner at this restaurant that had come highly recommended to me. It's in a great setting with a high ceiling, some balcony seating and a lively bar scene. Our food was good. However, we were disappointed in the lack of transparency provided...More

Everything about this place screams tired. First, the decor: think faded pictures of the chef and many past-their-prime celebrities on walls overlooking well-worn carpet. Second, the clientele - OLD and well-preserved senior diners (Florida's finest!) with too much money looking to relive their glory days....More

We are arriving on Dec. 19 for an 8 day stay. On the 20th, my son is going to be proposing to his lady and I am looking for a wonderful restaurant for us to celebrate afterwards. Several questions. Are you open on Dec. 20th? Can you accommodate 8? What is typical dress? Thank you or your help. Lori Johnson
