    Had chefs tasting menu with wine pairing to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Food was excellent, well prepared, beautifully presented and good portion size. Wine pairing was well conceived and worked well with each course. Service was efficient and friendly, and the course serving was at a nice pace....we didn't well rushed. All in all a very enjoyable evening

    What a wonderful and romantic evening we had at The Continental. Reminds me of old European Cafe-Bistro Style we really like to go to when we travel to Europe. Very well done. I can now have the same level of experience in Calgary. I can truly appreciate the attentions to details from the food execution to the attentive service. Everything was exceptionally on point. Cheers to an evening we will never forget.

    This Place is so amazing. The owners are so humble and work hard to provide the quality of food and service worth of Michelin Star Restaurant that even Chef comes out of the Kitchen to see how everyone is enjoying everything so far. That.. you don't see a lot in this day and age .. One can only respect that. The Chef's tasting menu is vibrant full of wonderful flavor and everything is seasoned perfectly. The wine pairing that was offered with our food was top notch. The Combination of flavor from the wine was a perfect match. oh and The Smoked Old Fashioned is simply the best. The playlist chosen is wonderful as well , playing some Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Etta James and so on to offer a great ambience. Definitely one of my Top 5 Restaurant in Calgary

    Excellent food and service. We had the five course tasting menu for Calgary Food Expo and it was exceptional. Waldorf salad, scallops and beef tartare to start. The tartare was smoked and it was excellent. Lamb loin for the main course, cooked perfectly. We finished with chocolate cheesecake. The wine was also excellent, particularly the Black Stallion. The service was very attentive. Overall a great meal. We will be back!

    We were so excited to try out this restaurant. We decided to keep it simple this first time and chose the Table d'hote $45 3 course menu on Thursday evenings. We are greeted nicely and seated at a lovely table. The service from then on was quite mixed, we asked about recommendations and we're essentially told everything is good, almost like it was a nuisance to ask. It seemed like perhaps the restaurant was understaffed and our server became quite rushed as the dinner continued. As for the food, the Caesar salad was excellent, my lamb was undercooked (asked for medium rare, got rare), I didn't complain because it still tasted good. That being said, all components of the dish were under seasoned and nothing too special, good, but not good enough for what we were expecting here. My husband's seafood pasta was definitely underwhelming, bland, simple, no depth and out of 5 mussels 2 we're closed and 1 still had the beard attached. My husband mentioned this and the server told him "sorry about that" and "I'll let the chef know", no effort was made to fix the issue, offer an alternative etc. Dessert showed up from a different staff member and coffee was not offered, which was surprising. The sticky toffee pudding was dry, the ice cream was nice. All in all I had high hopes, especially from the great reviews and was not impressed with the food or the service. The table and restaurant itself had great ambiance, nicely decorated, private and comfortable seating, not too many tables squished together, so at least we still enjoyed the space!

    I'm sorry to hear about your experience at the restaurant. It's disappointing when high expectations aren't met, especially when trying out a new place. Your feedback is valuable as it helps the restaurant improve its service quality. It sounds like there were some lapses in communication and execution during your visit. If you feel comfortable, consider reaching out to the restaurant management to share your experience in a constructive manner. Hopefully, they can address your concerns and ensure a better dining experience in the future.

    We were seated by the window and immediately Greeted with a Glass of Prosecco for our anniversary. Initially, we were drawn to their $45 Table d'Hote on weekdays, but when we saw the $75 5 Course Gourmet meal for The YYC Food Expo, we couldn't resist. Let me tell you, it was a decision we did not regret. From the fresh and flavorful Waldorf salad to the best smoked Beef Tartare we've ever had, every bite was a delight! The Sea scallops were seared to perfection, and The Lamb omg, I'm usually not a big fan of lamb but it was seasoned and cooked to perfection. Thank you To The Continental Team for the unforgettable night. You Guys knock it off the park.
