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.

Spectacular. Was sent here from the Parts Unknown episode and didn't disappoint. Split the Flambe Shrimp for an app and had the Fillet Mignon as the main while my partner had the peppercorn steak. Would recommend to all my friends.

A veritable jewel. A dining experience rarely available in today’s world of glass and chrome. Dining here is indeed, an experience. LC recalls great memories for me of grand dining, rarely available today. Yet, Le Continental is very relevant today, offering a chic, elegant, and completely comfortable dining experience. One feels at home the minute you enter the door given the warm and gracious service extended by the entire staff. I will never visit Quebec without visiting Le Continental. Bravo!

Restaurant dans la grande tradition de ce qui se fait de mieux en cuisine française. Accueil digne des rois, service impeccable, plats succulents et à point.
Les pièces de viande sont des meilleures coupes, viellies à merveille et d'une tendreté exceptionnelle.
Je le recommande fortement à quiconque veut vivre une expérience hors de l'ordinaire. Le seul bémol vient de l'addition (qui, contrairement à la nourriture, est très salée !), mais cela en vaut le coup (et le "coût") et fait partie de l'aventure !

french classics meticulously prepared tableside, made all the more amazing by flames and dazzling technique. our waiter/chef, matthew was a delight, and even though he wore a white tuxedo and bow tie, fussed over our 6 year old son and made sure he was included in the evening... something a lot of multi-starred restaurants could do well to emulate. a great meal!

The reason we would not recommend is simply the cost. The service and ambiance were top-notch, but with a bill of nearly 350, 00 $ (before gratuity), the food should also be outstanding. Foie gras is a rarity for us, and the presentation and accompaniments were not very exciting. The duck and dessert were lovely, but given the opportunity, we would opt for a restaurant with less service, and a more modern approach to the food. Perhaps that is just our taste, and it was admittedly our first experience with table-side flambée. Thank-you kindly for your interest.

This is a fantastic dining experience as you have your own personal chef prepare the meal table side. Our server was outstanding and explained every part of what he was doing. Meanwhile the other servers were like a well choreographed routine as they provide the necessary items and cleaned up. Wonderful evening which we hope to experience again.

What was prepared at our tables was surpurb. What came from the kitchen was not. The side plate of potatoes and vegetables were cold. Wine was relatively priced to other restaurants. The service and attention was a real treat and will be remembered as a special night. Crepe suzette is IMO the best dessert item on the menu. The food quality may be comparable to other establishments but the servi e and expérience à not compete anywhere.

What an experience! The wine list was great, we had two bottles of Chateau Gaillard Bordeaux which complimented the meal nicely. Three of us had steak, one had the lamb - all delicious. The cherries jubilee was also very good. The best part of the dining was the geridon service at the table. It was amazing having the food prepared right there no smoke, fumes, mess etc. Wait staff was incredible.

We wanted to do a night out experiencing the amazing food that Quebec City old town has to offer and was not disappointed. Fro. The time we walked in the services was friend,y and they did not rush you at all. Our table was ready at arrival and we could dine as long as we wanted. We had multiple servers all very knowledgeable on the food and wine/cocktails they offer. Staff was very friendly and they want you to enjoy your experience.

This was the best food and cocktails we had in Quebec City although pricey, it was well worth it. We will go back anytime and very much worth experiencing if you are in town.
The one thing I would call out is the dress code says casual, but most people we saw were dressed with business attire or better.

One of our best dining experiences ever! We came here because we saw an episode of Anthony Bourdain where he ate at this restaurant. It really was amazing, French cooking at its finest! We started with Ceasar salad for two and then the Filet Mignon was out of this world as was the Langoustine Newburg! Oh and we ended with Cherries Jubilee, which was a delicious sweet treat. If you are ever in Quebec City you must dine here!

We were here 20 years ago for our wedding dinner after eloping to Quebec. It was worth the wait! Truly a trip down memory lane as virtually nothing has changed! Which is a good thing! Le Continental is an institution and an icon that screams “old school” and “old world” charm!! Service is professional and extremely proficient with just the right touch of aloofness that totally captures the quintessential French experience! If we are still married and still able, we will be back to celebrate our 40th...if not sooner! Enjoy!
