It was an overall great experience!! We were pleasantly surprised when they starting cooking the filet in front of us. The food was amazing and such a cute place! A little pricey though.

An exquisite old-style French restaurant, service is superb, the table side preparation of caesar salad and flambe steaks is second to none.

Restaurant Le Continental is fine dining at its best. From the coat check, host (maître d'), lead waiter, and team of assistant waiters, everything was choreographed extremely well. The tableside flambé meals and deserts were a magical sensory experience to remember well into the future.

This is a beautiful old restaurant in Old Quebec, with all the protocol respected and all the traditions in play. A pretty good wine list. Mains are good. Trimmings oddly cafeteria-quality. And the same piano piece played again and again. Take another look at the details, You folks.

We had a truly delightful lunch: Caesar salad to share, pasta for my wife, and tenderloin medallions for me. The salad was hands down the best Caesar I've ever had (and that goes back 40 years). Hand prepared at the table, everything from scratch, and you could taste every ingredient in every bite. Worth every penny. The mains were delicious with good but not excessive portions. All accompanied by a crisp Riesling.

The restaurant really stands out for its service. Attentive, but not intrusive. My favorite moment came as our mains emerged from the kitchen: The waiter noticed my wife had stepped away from the table and without even stopping pivoted to take the plates back to the kitchen to stay warm. As soon as she returned, the signal was passed and our food came back out.

Le Continental is pricy, but if you have budgeted for one truly great meal, you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic service quality food but the restaurant makes you feel like you fish back to the early 50s. We loved it. Old formal restaurant. Rate to find.

Amazing food!! We started with cocktails & the escargot, then had the duck special for two which was incredible & cooked to perfection. For desert we had the tiramisu & crème brûlée, which our waiter recommended after we asked for suggestions & they were spot on! Impeccable service. We went to celebrate our engagement!

The greatest fine dining experience and personal chef at our table in a style and ambience that returned us to the best restaurants of the 50’s and 60’s. Simply the best. What a great time. We were special to them and they to us. Wonderful.

Beautiful old house in Old Quebec. I’d recommend to stick to the house specialties and flambées.
Cherries jubilees were lovely. The ceasar salad is a must.

This was our second time at Le Continental and it was just as amazing as the first. Food is delicious. They were more than willing to accommodate my gluten allergy. The service was outstanding. We will be back the next time we are in town.

I am merely the most recent in a long line of reviewers who describe the utter excellence of Le Continental. Our family of five was enraptured by a delicious and festive Christmas dinner, including several dishes prepared en flambé table-side. Le Continental is a superb example of what a fine dining experience looks like and tastes like. All staff work together in a seamless production to provide an efficient but not rushed experience. A special mention for the duck, tenderloin, Dover sole, and escargots. But it’s all wonderful. C’est magnifique!

Love the flambé !! The best so far ! The experience is amazing. The host are funny and very informative as they explain while making the flambé. Love the presentation and the fire!!! If your not getting the steak or fish flambé dont bother to go here ! - thats the highlight of their menu. Would go back for a special occasion for sure. :) a bit pricey for the others on the menu but the flambé is way worth every cent you pay.

This was our first time at Le Continental. The flavor of the food was delicious. The cozy dining experience made for a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon. The waiter prepared our shrimp dish right at the table at his own cart. How cool is that! We also ordered a slice of the traditional Christmas log (mocha flavor) for dessert. It was out of this world scrumptious! It melted in our mouths like butter. We would eat here again in a heartbeat.

I suppose, for an established steak house, there was nothing WRONG with it overall. ... But... the bread basket was sliced cold baguette and croutons, the onion soup was absolutely flavorless, and the veal chop severely undercooked. The service was great, but perhaps because about six different servers (all male) came to do just one specific thing they specialized in and then we'd never see them again. Of course, the tag that came with all this was super-sized! I'm sorry to say there are other places with better experiences and food, and that's where you'll find us.

This was an excellent spot for a romantic dinner for two. Our waiter, Sebastion was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. He prepared a caesar salad and filet mignon tableside for us, and also helped us select a great bottle of bordeaux to go with our meal. A very entertaining and delicious meal.
