We were disappointed in the sauces which seemed to have a lot of salt and were somewhat overpowering for the food being served. We were looking forward very much to this visit and can only assume we must have hit it on an "off" night. The flavors were not what we would expect in a high scale restaurant.

Superbly elegant but very traditional and formal. Food excellent but also traditional without innovation. Much flare and entertainment with table side salad preparation and flambés. Staff and service very professioImpressive wine list! Consider this as one of Québec’s top restaurants.

Thw wait staff is extraordinarily attentive and friendly. Nothing stiff about this restaurant at all, yet it is totally classy without being pretentious. One must choose tableside preparation dishes — caesar salad, beef of various types, desserts — all done with great elan (and delicious too!). One of the best restaurants I’ve eaten in anywhere, and in Quebec City alone that is saying a lot.

My wife and I went when in Quebec City.
Alberto was excellent!!!! Food was good, great table side presentation.
However, when we didn’t want any dessert . Alberto brought us a piece of house made cake “ free” except HE CHARGED US FOR IT.
Shouldn’t do that when bill was $300 for two anyway!!!
Left feeling negative after a wonderful evening!!

Sometime before 6pm, we were kind of early as far as dinner was concern. the ambient was quite since there were less ppl around. the service and food is outstanding, as you would expect. our waiter was great and funny and their specialties are on the "must try" list. we certainly enjoyed it.

Beautiful meal with table service flambe options. We chose the caesar salad made at table side. Followed by a seafood dish and the filet mignon. Dessert included the creme brulee and the St. Honore Cake. Outstanding. The waiter was lovely and professional. The decor is a little outdated but adds to authenticity. Price is not cheap but well worth it for a special occasion.

Notre deuxième visite à ce resto et avons été déçus par la nourriture cette fois. La salade césar trop vinaigrée et le filet mignon qui baigne trop dans la sauce. Mon plat de veau était sans goût (pourtant sauce au porto...). La tendreté de la viande est cependant à souligner.

Nous avions pourtant été séduits la première fois.

It was our third time within 10 months. And the food was fantastic: we had carpaccio, soup and the orange duck!!!! Everything was outstanding. Not to mention the service!
The deserts were amazing! As soon as we are back to Quebec- we will visit Le Continental again!
Many thanks!

My husband and I visited Quebec City; we needed a getaway after the long Maine winter, and we were so excited about visiting the Continental again. It lived up to our wonderful memory of past dinners there, and even exceeded our past experiences. The service, atmosphere and food were exquisite.

Je vais souvent au Continental et je suis toujours pleinement satisfait, mais cette fois-ci le serveur est arrivé avec les légumes d'accompagnement une fois mon repas presque terminé. Il avait oublié les légumes et s'est excusé de cette oubli. Ce sont des choses qui peuvent arrivées mais pas dans un restaurant de cette classe-là.

This is a one-of-a-kind experience. Old school French cuisine in a beautiful setting with excellent service and spectacular food. Flambés are their specialty - would not pass on the Cherries Jubilee.

Food and service were excellent! Our only issue is that the same song played on repeat the entire time. Two hours of a piano cover of The Ice Castles Theme....over and over. It was so irritating it detracted from an otherwise wonderful evening.

Excellent restaurant, very well located in the heart of Old Québec, near the Château Frontenac. This place has been in business for many years and from my experience, including my most recent visit , has consistently maintained a very quality level, in both food and service. Their signature dish is the "Filet mignon en boite", cooked right by you table. The food is quite pricey, but the quality is there so it remains a good value proposition.
