We were there for a birthday celebration. It was delightful. Wonderful service and great food.
The food and ambiance are what keep us going back to Christian Michaels. They also have great happy hour/small bite options and fun cocktails. On this particular evening we also had a wonderful server who provided exceptional service. He made great suggestions and was attentive without being intrusive.
The food was fine, we did not enjoy it nor did we hate it. Do not eat the rosemary garlic focaccia bread if you are there for a first date; the garlic is strong.
Our server was pleasant to our faces, but we could hear him talking about us to his coworkers. We were shocked by the rudeness.
Rude service aside, I would still not recommend this restaurant as the food was poor in taste and flavor compared to the pricing. An entree valued at $19 is not very expensive, but one would still expect good flavor.
First time visit...enjoyable and pleasing but nothing special for a high end restaurant.
It would be nice to have soups as a choice with salads and why is there so much pork? Bacon crusts are not what all meat eaters want.
The food was much better the last time I was there - it's really not an Italian rest.
It was really good good and priced decently. Our waitress seemed to be a little too busy but it was still a nice date night place.
We took my son and his girlfriend (starving students) out for a nice dinner on a Saturday night. Service was a bit slow for my taste, perhaps understaffed, but the waiter (Robert) was friendly and gracious. Started with well made cocktails and appetizers that disappeared quickly. Main entrees were very good to the point there was no room for the great looking desserts. Had a very enjoyable experience. One of the top choices for dinner in Chico.
Good food, good service, pleasant surroundings...only complaint was the music turned up too loud but they lowered it upon request.
I drove & my mother took me to the restaurant for lunch for my birthday. The food was not very good at all. We both left & not very happy.
Patrick was very accommodating in turning down the music which was a little loud for my taste. Only drawback was that the tables are awfully close together when there was a huge section of the restaurant not in use - would love if they could spread the tables out in seasons when they are not as busy. Food and wine were excellent.
Excellent food and attentive service. We'll be back.
First time here on wife's b'day. Turned out we hit "wine Wednesday" and the entire wine list was 25% off. Splurged on a bottle from a favorite Napa winery and the discount was a nice surprise. Food was very good. Beet salad was tasty though could have benefited from actual chunks of goat cheese vs. a light dusting. Didn't care for the flash seared romain salad. We had the seafood tortellini and the bacon wrapped meat loaf. Both were dishes I'd order again. Service was attentive but not overly so. Very quiet evening in the dining room with just us and 3 other dinner parties. The bar had much more going on and was pretty full but did not overly intrude on the dining room. We will be back, on a Wednesday.
We have eaten here on several special occasions. The service is always impeccable and they always make everything and everyone feel special. The food is mostly things you wouldn’t find in common places. I find the prime rib to be exceptional, and if you save room for dessert the creme brûlée is one of the best I’ve ever tasted. Price is a little high but you get what you pay for!
We invited a few friends to my husband's birthday party. The waiter was very attentive and the service was great. They were very gracious about serving the wine we provided. They provided a champagne bucket for the prosecco. We arrived early for the dinner specials, which have soup or salad, an entree and a dessert. The meal was delicious. And unlike most places the dessert is from the normal dessert menu, and is well worth it.
There were six ladies for a birthday lunch for two of the six. We had a great waiter who was attentive, fun, funny and very nice. Lunch was good. The restaurant was loud as there were several other groups of ladies having lunch and a good time.
Waited too long to order. Vegetables not cooked properly burnt shallots not edible Brussels sprouts too hard not cooked enough. Tomato soup only thing good we had
My husband and I have enjoyed Christian Michael's for years. Great lunches and dinners. We especially love their Sunday brunch. Wonderful food and excellent service always.
We were looking forward to filet mignonette listed on the website menu. Unfortunately not offered on the menu at the restaurant. My husband had the steak which he said was rather tough. I had the tenderloins of beef which arrived cold and much more rare than I like ( medium was quite reddish). The service was good but the noise level was so loud my husband sitting across the table from me had to keep asking me to repeat what I said. not worth the $130 it cost us. I'm sure we won't go back
We will always miss Jamie
But Matt was awesome
Perfect for celebrating occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. the food is great. Quiet dining area perfect for conversation. Service is also great. Matt was attentive without hovering. Found the experience exactly as planned. Celebrated a milestone birthday and enjoyed the evening.
I’ve eaten here before on a few occasions and I’ve had amazing food and service before but this particular evening everything was just mediocre. The whole experience, food and service was just blah. No one was rude or unpleasant; our server was a little, shall we say, “clunky”. The meatloaf, which I had previously and loved it, was bland as was the sauce. My husband commented his tenderloin was lacking in flavor. The dessert was just okay. I’m not sure what the deal was, maybe bc it was a weeknight? We’ve had all of this before and it seemed to be much more satisfying in the past. After dropping $100 for our anniversary date I was left feeling that maybe I should have chosen elsewhere. Btw, I had made a reservation with a note about celebrating our anniversary and not one word from staff about it. Found that a little disappointing; most restaurants will comp a dessert or at least acknowledge the special occasion.
Nice restaurant with an impressive wine list. Pleasant staff.
Good selection fresh god great service
Overall great spot
Very quiet dining room. Attentive staff without hovering. Ambient lighting enough to read the menu but not glaring. The food was prepared exactly as requested.
My dgtr bday
Very slow service kept the rating from being higher. Staggered delivery of entrees was also disappointing. Food was good, interaction with wait staff was good, but it just took too long.
Amazing service, great food, the entire staff was very nice and welcoming. This Restaurant is very upscale, the food is pricey but it is worth every cent. We will be coming back for date night again.
There were four of us and we all enjoyed our meals immensely. The salmon was particularly moist and delicious.
We had a very nice time dining here. Food was fresh and delicious. I really enjoyed my fish entree but felt the cheese topping did not add much to it. We really enjoyed the calamari! Service was good as well.
Great location, service was very good. I had the ribs and they were fantastic. Girls had the chicken caprese and it was a solid selection. Dining room was nicely laid out, albeit a tad warm. But this is Chico...
Well worth a try!
The food is always very good, and we appreciate the excellent service. We often recommend Christian Michael's to friends.
The service is impeccable, Ronnie in the bar personable and makes a great mixed drink. All entrees were great. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Went here for anniversary. food was excellent, and fast. great value for what we got, except wish there were more crab cakes for the appetizer, they were delicious! they use veggies and fruits from the local farmers market. the service was fast, accommodating, and really funny guy. he did a great job at helping us with what is great for our tastes, wish i got his name. overall very amazing dinner. would recommend for a fancier night out.
The ribeye steak was to die for.
Ronnie (our waiter) was very personable, friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself is lovely and nice for an intimate dinner or family gathering. Highly recommended.
Their brunch is the best in town. I didn't know how amazing eggs Benedict could be until I tried it from here over a buttery croissant and crab cakes.
I took a client team out to dinner with a party of 10. The food was very good and there was a full bar offering cocktails. Unfortunately, after inquiring on our food order more than an hour after we placed it, we were told that the order never printed and so had not been started. This was disappointing. They did recover nicely and delivered excellent plates in about 10 minutes, also offering complimentary salads and some drinks for the wait. Also a sizable discount was applied to the overall ticket, so we were certainly "made whole." The clientele are "older" and the ambiance is fairly plain, but good food and drinks.
Had reservations and seated on time a request for a bench seat honored.
Once again amazing food and service at Christian Michaels.The server was very friendly and attentive.We never asked for anything,he just did an amazing job!! Food was hot,fresh and delicious.Highly recommend the Sunday Brunch.
Always enjoy dining at Christian Michaels with their consistently good food and service- great salads and margaritas...
Special fillet was awesome
