Modern European
With a stunningly warm and inviting atmosphere reminiscent of a family-run restaurant in Tuscany or Bordeaux, Continental Treat Fine Bistro in Edmonton serves charming continental cuisine. The traditional cheese and potato stuffed pierogis with sour cream and the vegetable-laden red barszcz soup make excellent starter dishes. Some of Continental Treat Fine Bistro's specialty entrée dishes include the marinated pork chop Munich style with smoked sausage and mushrooms in a rich pearl onion sauce, the chicken stroganoff in a creamy tomato sauce with spaetzle, sour cream and diced pickles, the famous Hungarian goulash with tender beef cubes stewed in a rich and fragrant paprika sauce and the rainbow trout with seasoned with lemon, dill and capers, pan fried until crisp and golden. Continental Treat Fine Bistro also serves an excellent array of beers and wines from across the globe; the perfect accompaniment to the hearty and rustic fare.

    The best part of the restaurant was the noise level. So many restaurants we have been to have us shouting across the table in an effort to be heard We were able to carry on a conversation at Continental. The food was good although mine wasn’t very hot. The prices are high but for the quality of the meal and the ambiance we feel it was worth it.

    The best for Gluten Free options for my wife. The soups are great, entrees are awesome, desserts we don't know as always too full from the meal. Staff friendly, smaller place which we like.

    When we first set down the server was attentive, but then was assigned large tables which consumed her time and efforts. It not her fault but whomever did the seating assignment should be more aware…. The food was amazing as usual! The ambiance fabulous… We will be back again!

    A very pleasant dinner experience! The atmosphere of the restaurant is cozy and relaxing- neither too loud nor too quiet and a nice distance from the other tables. Our service from Ayla was prompt, polite and professional. A nice choice of wine by glass or bottle, the food arrived quickly and looked and tasted delicious! The servings were a generous size which we couldn't finish and took home- so needless to say, we didn't try the deserts (this time!) We always recommend Continental Treat to others as one of our favorite restaurants because they are consistently great year after year. We will be back again and again!!

    I frequent Continental Treat over many years.My lunch experience on Dec 30 was pathetic.The menu was limited.The manager was indifferent to our complaints.We did have a reservation which translates to me that you can accommodate me in the kitchen&on the floor.Neither happened.I was so impressed with your survival during the pandemic.Hope you can return to your former status.I realize it's difficult to get good staff but you need to adjust your numbers so those who come can get service.

    An excellent choice if you like eastern European cuisine. The food was tasty and presentation was good. Service was also good but we were disappointed by the premises at the Whyte Ave location, which is tired and in need of renewal.

    We were staying overnight in Edmonton as we live in Calgary. My husband found this restaurant as we both love schnitzel, rouladen and many other dishes. We were not disappointed. The ambience, service and the food was outstanding. I had the chance to have dill pickle soup - the soup was so tasty and if you love dill pickles this is for you. We unfortunately did not have room for dessert but will make sure to leave room on our next visit.

    Dine here often, always enjoy the food. Service this time was incredibly awful and our tips reflected that. Missed condiments, unanswered requests, messed up bills. She just seemed overwhelmed - better training or just indifference

    Fabulous meal. Service was slow and inattentive. The first 4 bottles of wine I attempted to order were out of stock. It was very cold and drafty; need to work on insulating the doors and windows. The food and quiet ambiance are consistently good.

    This was a staple restaurant for us! Not so anymore. The food was slightly cold, service was just okay. The portions have decreased significantly while the price has increased astronomically. Overall, what use to be an amazingly awesome experience has turned into another “fancy” meal where you pay for “ambiance” and artistry. The food was not artfully placed and comfort food will never be “high dining”. I felt alienated and divorced from one of my fav dining spots. It is never okay to charge almost 14.00 for a small cube of cake (previously cheaper and three times the size for sharing). No refills offered for coffee or tea. Food was a shadow of what it was. Our bill was 110 (no tax or tip added yet). No alcohol. No starter. Insane. Two people. Sadness all over.

    Continental Treat Fine BistroResponded on December 7, 2022Good Morning Vitoria, first of all I am very sorry for your frustration here are my responses. I will talk to FOH and BOH to ensure the food comes out hot, as you know the food prices are raising daily, our food cost used to be at 33% now its closer to 39%. When it comes to the Black forest cake, Whyte avenue supposed to cut it into 9 pieces and they cut 6 pieces for some reason all year. We only barely break even when you take into consideration the ingredients and labour at 9 pieces.
