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 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!

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.

Not worth it. You’d be better off with with a nice Pinot Noir and yummy poutine in a park listening to Street music than giving your hard earned money to this staid restaurant cashing in on its location.

On every visit to Quebec city le continental is one of the highlights. The food is amazing with service to match. Over a decade ago we brought our young son who has subsequently become a lover of escargot and lobster due to the first experience at le continental.

We had a great weekend in Quebec City hitting up some amazing restaurants to explore the creative foodie experiences in town. This isn't really about that though. This is a step back in time more about the theatre of the experience than about ingredients or exotic cocktails. Our waiter executed the evening with absolute perfection. We ordered many items from the menu just to see them prepared table-side and having their delivery coordinated with one another, and my cognac at the end of the meal in a warmed glass was the perfect ending. Well done. Merci!

We went to Le Continental while on vacation in Quebec City. The dinner was exceptional (best we have had in some time) and the service matched the food. If you go there, request Sebastian as your waiter. He was a very interesting person to talk to and was very attentive to our needs. Sebastian also prepared the Caesar salad for two at the table and completed the preparation of our Chateaubriand at the table as well. Can't say enough good things about the restaurant, food, service, etc.
