Christian Michael's Ristorante
Dinner for TwoService was very good and courteous. General setting and atmosphere was very good. We enjoyed our overall dining experience. The Tempura Prawns were great! Salads were very crispy and colorful. The spinach and risotto ravioli was good, topped with fresh spinach greens. The hot chocolate brownie was lovely.
Throughout the meal, our waitress was unintrusive yet perfectly attentive. EXCELLENT SERVICE!
Because the overall experience was very good, we will come back again and try different entrees. Thank you for sending this survey.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and serviceThe food here is just outstanding and the service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
I had the beef tenderloin with parmisan mashed potatoes and green beans. The meat was cooked to perfection and the marinade was outstanding. The mashed potatoes were also excellent and the green beans were not over done.
My wife had the Coq Au Vin. The chicken was tender and juicy and the sauce was delicious.
Try the caramel cheesecake. We were still talking about it the next day.
We have never had a bad meal here. It's always excellent.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a special dinnerRegardless of the occasion, a dinner at Christian Michael's is always special. Ambiance, food, service are excellent5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGrad nightWe had a reservation for 6, but a family member flew in at the last minute and they accomadated us even though the restaurant is quite small and cozy.
The service was attentive but not overbearing, and the food was really nice. A water glass was broken by accident and they cleared the table quickly efficently with no fuss and our dinner continued as planned.
If I lived in this area it would definetly be the place to take out of town guests. I work in San Francisco so eat in the city a lot. It was like dining at a San Francisco restaurant in the small town of Chico. two thumbs up or 4 stars in our book.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, great foodExcellent service, great food and drinks. The noise level was a little high for quiet conversation but overall not distracting. Light was a little low but the whole experience was exceptional.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayTook the family (4) for Mother's Day. A little disappointed that they had made a special Mother's Day brunch menu as I had my mouth all set for the regular menu. The food though made up for it and I left very satisfied. I would suggest in the future to leave the regular menu intact and add a few special brunch items for the holiday if desired, or at least make the customers aware when they are booking reservations that menu will not be as expected. Thanks for you consideration and I will be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPlease read commentsWe were celebrating a friend's birthday that night with dinner and concert. I left a note in the comments section to the restaurant of the special occasion and the birthday girls name. I thought the restaurant would acknowledge with a lighted candle on the desserts or at least a Happy Birthday from the hostess or server at some point in the meal. It was apparent when we left that they don't read the comments left for them. Other than that over sight, our whole experience was wonderful.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were wonderful.Food and service were wonderful. We will be back. I loved the charred romaine salad with jalapeno dressing!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMChef Special's two thimbs up!Excellent food, great Chef Special's, and superior customer service (at least our waitress) and in this town that is hard to find.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly thing that didn't happenOnly thing that didn't happen is the waiter didn't bring over a basket of bread until later when we were already starting to eat our salads. Also ASKED IF we wanted bread which I know in all restaurants it is a given.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
