Total Enjoyment
In the gourmet world of Le Continental, traditional cuisine is classical. Enjoy the perfect service, the great flambéed dishes that pay tribute to the delicious French cuisine. The Continental's wine cellar is most impressive with its board of famous selection of French, Italian and American wines. It offers a choice of more than five thousand bottles, four hundred different varieties from Grands Crus classés to affordable prices.

I have eaten at the Continental on two occasions. The entire experience is characterized by attentiveness, experience, and artistry of presentation.
The cost reflects the highest level of gastronomic delight.

My wife and I celebrated our birthdays (both on October 13th) at Le Continental, the experience was above and beyond our expectations.

Our server was a craftsman preparing the tableside caesar salad and cooking our steak. The dining room had a wonderful atmosphere and the entire staff made us feel welcome.

This is a uniquely Quebecois experience and one we would highly recommend while staying in the Old City. Thank you Le Continental for helping us celebrate in style!

What can be said that Anthony Bourdain hasn't already said about this place? Charming, old school French cuisine. Everything was cooked to perfection - ambiance was right and the staff were experts at everything they did - not a single shred of unprofessionalism. Le Continental should be a model for what every single restaurant should strive for. This was an engagement dinner for my fiance and I and it went perfectly. We had dinner and dessert and the price point (considering we were coming from the US) was on the low side so I can't complain about cost.

It was our second visit to Quebec City and we love it there. The Le Continental was highly recommended to us so we added it to our list. We stayed at the Frontenac so it was ultra convenient. It was a special birthday so we ordered everything. An excellent bottle of wine, caeser salad, escargot, steak with mustard sauce, veal, crepes suzette and ended with a Remy! Oh I forgot the complimentary birthday cake. Everything was fabulous. Our waiter timed each course perfect and was an expert on his food preparation. We felt he really wanted us to have a great dining experience. if you are wondering why I gave the food only a 4 star it was because although the sauce was wonderful on my husband's steak the meat itself was tuff. This can happen but had to mention it.

Our waiter for 2 successive nights was Pierre, who was delightful and VERY masterful in cooking meat to the ordered doneness, even while doing flambé at even two or three other tables. His Caesar and mustard vinaigrette were both memorable!
I didn’t give a 5 for overall because the area was quite warm, rather noisy and the price high for the size of the meat servings.

This was not only a restaurant but an experience. Our Server Sebastion was a true artist in his tableside food preparation. What a wonderful meal we enjoyed and what a perfect start to our vacation. If you are in Quebec City make sure to have a special evening here.

Skip the escargot but the foie gras is wonderful. The duck for 2 was a good choice with a side of vegetables. This probably is the only restaurant in Quebec that does table side presentation which is much appreciated.

FIVE STARS. Jeff, our server, was absolutely amazing. The food was to die for. The tantalizing smells and gourmet flavors were mouthwatering. My husband had the peppercorn steak and it was one of the best steaks he’s ever had. They were also excellent at handling my various food allergies. At the end, we loved our desert so much that we ordered it twice. Definitely try the Cherries Jubilee. Everything about this restaurant is outstanding. We will return!

Le Continental is an "Old World" dining experience. Impeccable service, tableside food preparation, and outstanding food and drinks. This is the best restaurant in Old Quebec City. It is a must when in Quebec City.

Chose to try Le Continental because of the old French style cooking by the table. Had the fixed course menu and we had a rabbit brisket bundle in a pastry shell, delicious, followed by broccoli soup, duck a l’orange carved and cooked in sauce next to our table and it came with a side of veggies, then we chose berry sorbet for dessert. They were busy but kept our bread and water topped up the entire time and all were very efficient. Definitely come here to try old style French cuisine!

White coated servers providing excellent service and recommendations! Very formal and distinguished. We were clearly underdressed but they made us feel so welcomed. Craft cocktails, help with the wine list, caesar salad prepared tableside (old school), duck L'orange flambeed tableside (older school) and an amazing dessert. Nothing like dinner and a show. Not sure if there was anyone in the kitchen because there was so much being prepared and flambeed out in the restaurant. This is an elegant, old school, fine dining opportunity, not to be missed in Quebec. Big 👍
