Had a wonderful experience at a restaurant with perfect service and excellent food. Went with older family members who have hearing and mobility issues and everyone at the restaurant was so kind and gracious. (Sadly this is not always the case.)My parents and my aunt were thrilled by the experience and so was I.

At first the prices seem high but after seeing your meal cooked table side you appreciate the quality and effort behind the meal. If in Quebec City, I highly recommend Le Continental for some authentic French cuisine.

The food was good, but not great. The freshly table side made Caesar salad was drenched in dressing. The filet that was made table side was over cooked. In fairness, they realized that it was overcooked and they made me a new one. It was still a nice night, just not worth the money.

We stayed at the Frontenac and booked this restaurant based on excellent reviews and the desire for French food. This restaurant is unique in the sense that you feel transported in time to a very classy period. They prepare many menu items table side with such professionalism. It is a very romantic restaurant. The food is authentically French and delicious. It’s expensive but it’s worth it. We are “foodies” and it impressed us.

We can't resist the Continental every time we visit Quebec City - it has always been an exceptional experience with outstanding food. We enjoy watching the team in action and marvel at how they can deliver exceptional dishes to so many patrons at the same time.

We have every intention of enjoying another meal there the next time we visit Quebec City - it is more than worth the drive!!

Le Continental achieves all goals with a sophisticated menu and sophisticated staff. At the same time, the staff is thoughtful, congenial and brings good cheer to the table as well as serving first-class cuisine. This is a gem in the city that sparkles with history, beauty and 'bonne humeur.' Merci, Le Continental!

Le Continental was a fabulous restaurant. Service is impeccable and food “to die for “. We each had a flambé, the specialty of the house. Karen had shrimp with a lobster bisque-based sauce and I had the sirloin with mustard sauce. Both dishes were pan cooked at out table and served piping hit into a well thought out plate. I was concerned the mustard sauce might be too strong but it was muted by other spices and liquids. A wonderful experience highly recommended. We’ll be back!

We chose Le Continental for a birthday celebration date. The table side food preparation was outstanding. We had the Caesar salad for two and the filets both prepared at our table. All the food was excellent and service perfect. Sometimes it’s just nice to enjoy traditional French style with all the bells and whistles. Thank you Le Continental for a wonderful evening.

Le Continental is without question one of the finest Restaurants we have dined at in our 40 years of travel. The menu is traditional and served at the highest level of quality both in food and service! Our waiter Monsieur Kevin was the best! What we don’t understand, and probably never will is why this Restaurant does not have a 3-star Michelin rating! It surpassed the service and quality of all the other places we dined at in Quebec City.

Excelente opción les comer, la calidad de los alimentos fabulosos. Las entradas y platos fuertes muy buenos. escogimos una carne flambee, estaba condimentaba perfectamente, cocinada justo enfrente de la mesa. Al final terminamos con unas crepes suzettes fabulosos, igual preparadas junto a la mesa. El precio es de la gama alta pero vale la pena cada dólar.

No visit to Quebec City would be complete without a visit to Restaurant Le Continental! The ambiance is lovely, the staff professional, polite and very friendly. But the best, of course, is the food! We chose to do prix fix menu (best value and good portions for 4 courses!) and shared the chateauebriand, which was probably the best filet I have ever had in my life! Second to that was the St. Honore cake which was light, creamy and not overly sweet. I heartily recommend the table service dining experience, which it seems has become a lost art. Not to be missed!

Old school restaurant with tuxedo clad staff.Very pleasant relaxed ambiance.A chance to have dishes served in a style rarely seen anymore(table side Ceaser salad,flambé specialties etc)..However be prepared for sticker shock.Definately consider a ‘splurge’ resto

I choose this restaurant because it was close to my hotel and I was exhausted, what a lucky break. The specialty is flamed steak . I was planning to have seafood, but the copper pot of butter and seasoning was so aromatic, I opted for the steak, it was fabulous I will be back. I live half a continent away.

This restaurant made me feel like when I went to fancy restaurants with my grandparents. It has all the type of things that elegant restaurants did back in those days. Dressed up waiters, flambé in place, etc. We felt a little under dressed for the place, although it said informal (which it isn't) and it is pricy. If you want the elegant and fancy type of french restaurant, this is it.
