    The staff was amazing and welcoming. The experience was one of a kind, and the food was very good. The dress code says casual on open table, but you most certainly should dress up a bit to match the wait staff and ambiance. We were wearing t-shirts and felt very out of place. They did not deny us, but to feel comfortable, I would recommend business casual. Lobster was great, shrimp was good with small portion sizing, and the peppercorn steak was perfectly cooked but was a bit one note in terms of flavor. Overall, I would definitely recommend it for a fun date night or celebration.

    We booked this reservation far in advance as we were travelling to Quebec City to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary - which was noted on the reservation and acknowledged by the host on arrival. Our experience was marred by an aggressive waiter who took over our service and used our anniversary dinner to train three new staff. I understand training is necessary, but maybe not over a 30th anniversary celebration? There was much talking, instructions and correcting. Not a romantic atmosphere! Separately, we started off with a different waiter, who made our table-side Caesar salad - good job. The aggressive waiter literally pushed the first waiter out of the way when the table-side Chateaubriand was ready to be prepared. That was when we became the training table. There was clearly some internal politics between the first and aggressive waiter (who resembled Telly Savalas, Kojak!) The first waiter was clearly put out and sad, but conceded to the aggressive waiter. We never saw the first waiter again. The aggressive waiter was running between our table and another to do table side flambés - with his three trainees in tow. It was highly off-putting and, frankly, ruined our experience. The food was marvellous and this place was wonderfully old school (we honeymooned in France and wanted to revisit old European atmosphere.) The aggressive waiter boasted to the other couple (switching back and forth for flambé) that he had been working there for ten years. Shocking conduct and not acceptable if you care about guest experience!

    This place is a tourist trap. Very overpriced with mediocre food and annoying service. They insist on installing a little cooking stove in front of every table & proceed to cook in front of patrons. Appetizers were pretty bad, main courses, including filet mignon, - mediocre (I cook much better myself), & dessert (mini St. Germain cake) was just terrible. Staff if constantly around the table, not giving customers a moment's peace. We couldn't wait to get out if there & it was our wedding anniversary. The restroom is up very steep stairs, a person with a disability wouldn't be able to use it. Overall, waste of money

    Great food and great service. We had the Caesar salad for two prepared tableside, the lobster and the filet mignon cooked tableside. All delicious. Ended with the sugar pie - YUM! Would highly recommend this establishment. Impeccable customer service.

    From the moment we stepped through the door, the experience was impeccable. We shared the Cesar salad which was prepared to perfection at the table. I had the shrimp and my husband had steak au poivre, we paired that with a wonderful French wine upon the suggestion of our waiter. We left thrilled with our meal.

    We ordered 2 steaks, flambé was interesting, but the sauces were quite disappointing, lack of flavors, and a bit too acidic, too much rosemary. Came here because of Anthony Boudain recommended it on his show, unfortunately the restaurant did not keep up the standard.

    First, Le Continental is VERY expensive. Be prepared to spend $250 - $300 for a couple. Having said that, it was worth every penny. The food was outstanding. We shared the Chateaubriand for two. It was perfectly cooked and the sauce was amazing. This isn't something we eat often but it was worth the money and the calories. We shared the Blak Forest Cake for dessert and another winner. The service was fabulous. The servers were attentive without being intrusive. They were familiar with the wine list and the menu. It was real old fashioned service that you seldom see any more. The ambiance was also old fashioned with a lot of dark work and fabrics. This is a look that I personally enjoy but I can understand how some could find it overwhelming. Overall, I highly recommend the restaurant even with the high prices.

    We were visiting Quebec City for the first time and were recommended to visit Le Continental for dinner, and we were super satisfied. Service was quick and friendly, and our food was cooked table side. We got the escargot, filet mignon, cognac prawns, and flan based on what our waiter recommended and it was all phenomenal. The bill was reasonable compared to so many other restaurants we've been to around the world. We are still talking about the food days later, particularly the filet mignon. The wine pairing was also amazing, and we will definitely be back in the future. Highly recommend a visit if you are in Quebec City!

    We had a good time. My favorite was the Caesar salad! It was absolutely delicious. The homemade dressing was amazing. Our table also had the salmon, lobster tail and veal tenderloins. They were good. The next best thing was the crème brûlée. The crepes Suzette were a bit too orange flavored for me. Overall, a nice dining experience.

    My partner had the Filet Mignon cooked at the tableside and said it was the best she'd ever had: tender, tasty, and moist. I had the Dover Sole which was also cooked tableside and was bland and overcooked, which was very disappointing. For dessert, we had Crêpes Suzette made at the tableside. It far surpassed any version of the dish we'd had before and the flaming of the Grand Marnier was done with great panache. I realise Quebec is generally an expensive city, but this restaurant is very expensive by Quebec standards - $650 USD for 4 people.

    Amazing experience with table side prep. We ordered the scallops with mustard and honey sauce and the Dover sole Meunière which was recommended by the waiter over the Filet Mignon. The scallops were delicious, the Dover sole came already prepared to the table and was dry and without any sauce. It was such a disappointment, especially since the filet mignon was such a staple of theirs. Crepes Suzette for dessert did not disappoint. The service was impeccable.
