    The soup and dessert were very tasty! We went on a Thursday so they had live entertainment and they were lovely. However, both mains for my friend and I were under seasoned and my friends steak was under cooked. She asked for medium well, it was bloody. My pierogies tasted horrible, sadly I was not pleased with the mains at all. Will probably not go back for a main meal, but maybe for dessert and listen to the music?

    Great service, nice staff, great live entertainment on the night we were there. The food was great, also excellent for gluten free diets. Very handy to slip across to the Citadel after the supper (which included a 10% discount for Citadel attendees!) 😍

    The food was great (as always), but we suspect that our server forgot about us. For context, it was during Teachers’ Convention and we were a party of 4 with basic orders (no menu items identified as taking lots of time). We didn’t get approached for drink orders for at least 20 min. The table across from us was seated at least half an hour after but received their meal significantly before us. We walked in at 12:10, and we weren’t able to leave until 2:25, which was frustrating. There were empty some tables in the restaurant, so it wasn’t fully booked, though certainly busy.

    We met up with friends to catch up before taking in the play at the citadel. Never realized that a 12 person brass band was blaring through a small space rendering the evening way too noisy. We did get ourselves moved to the back but still way too loud. To us a high end restaurant is for nice food and visiting. Everyone enjoyed their food except that the liver and onions was terrible. My husband went there for that dish and it was over cooked and sinewy. The citadel program indicated that season ticket holders had a 10% discount. We clearly indicated we were going to the play and no one brought up the discount to us. I do enjoy the location and many of the food items but it will be some time before we go back

    Good Morning Marie, first of all thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and your support of our third generation family bistro. I am sorry about the level of noise, the string quartet was replaced with the Don Berners Big Band Fundraiser. In regards to the discount we do not automatically apply it, unless a customer asks and shows their card. I hope you will give us another try on a quiter night. With highest regards Sylvester and Borowka Family.

    My wife and I had dinner before Citadel Theatre. Second or third time eating here. We both had starter salads, I had pork schnitzel my wife had the salmon. Both were very good. I had black forest cake for desert and my wife had apple strudel. Both were excellent. There was a jazz band playing that we enjoyed, but it can be a bit loud if you're sitting close to the band. The only critique would be the limited cocktail list and the Old Fashioned I ordered from the bar. I've had many Old Fashioned drinks before and this was not the best. Not sure if the bartender was well versed in mixology.

    The ambience and the String Quartet were excellent. The complete gluten free menu looked amazing. That's where it fell apart. Extremely slow, 30 minutes after seating before waited on. Then only provided the drink menu. 20 more minutes to be served. Second course came before appetizer. The main meal came at same time as the appetizer course. Several hot dishes were cold. When we brought it to the managers attention all he said once if you come back we will do better and make it right for you. Will not be a second time as needed to make it right the first time e.g. a discount, gift certificate etc.

    My colleagues and I dined at Continental Treat Bistro during our lunch hour. We ordered a variety of schnitzel dishes as there was a BOGO special. The food was pretty good, however service was a bit slow. It took an hour for us to get our food even though the restaurant didn't appear busy. I would recommend the restaurant for the food and if you have a lot of time.

    I love this restaurant and the fact that it caters to a very specific allergy that is hard to work around. The food and service were great. The live music was so loud that it made it hard to enjoy the meal and conversation. The band was good and the music would have been enjoyable but it made enjoying the evening impossible and we were so grateful for the moments they stopped and we didn’t have to scream at each other to converse.

    Hello Peter, thank you so much for your review. Feedback is very important to all of us here at our 3rd. generation family bistro. I am so happy that you enjoy your visits to our bistro. As for the loud music. I do sincerely apologize. We try to keep it to a pleasant level. Some bands are more powerful than others. We will have to keep an eye on it. You are so right, if you have to scream then it was way too much. If you like to come back for another performance, please voice your noise preference to the server. We hope that you will. Also, check out our Tuesday evening dance classes. Thanks again for your feedback. Cheers Sylvester

    We love Continental Treats! We go because they feature live music and they have excellent food. Tonight we made a point of hearing Gary Martin and the Hot Shots. They are an Edmonton gem--Gary being a guitar/bandleader with an impressive musical background. The servers are attentive and pleasant. The wait staff and owner now recognize us, because we return often--we have become regulars. Continental Treats is a privately owned, local Edmonton restaurant, which means that it is like family. We return because it is a place that we want to return to.

    Hello Dave. I hope all is well. Thank you so much for your amazing words. Nothing makes us more happy here at our 3rd. generation family bistro then to read these words.

You are the reason why we love what we do. Please come by Tuesday evenings when we have our dance classes. So much fun. Cheers Sylvester
