Amazing food. Service too artificial. You feel they want to finish it quickly. It’s all smiles but they want to take the orders and move on.

We went for a birthday dinner and really enjoyed our experience. The ambience in the restaurant was just what we wanted. It was cozy, but not tight. Our waiter was impeccable, a real professional. The food was excellent - for the most part. The sides that came with our meals - particularly the mashed potatoes could definitely have been warmer. We also ordered an extra side of potatoes and that was much warmer than what came with the meal.
The waiters preparing food at the table was fun and added to our experience. If you are heading to Quebec City, I would recommend Le Continental.

The escargot were very good. House wine was ok. My cocktail was very good. Making Caesar salad at the table was a joke, basically putting their house dressing in a bowl and mixing in lettuce like it was a big deal. Main courses were acceptable but not noteworthy. Cheesecake not very good. Irish coffee was super good way to end meal on a high point.

We came to Quebec City for our honeymoon and enjoyed a lovely evening at Le Continental. Our waiter Ange was fantastic and the food was delicious. When we go on holiday we treat ourselves to one very fancy evening and Le Continental did not disappoint! Thank you for a great evening.

steaks are good. The "show" ....cooking table side was fun. The waiter , like everything else was old school. pleasant enough. Hate the mandatory white dinner jackets, they just look cheap.

My husband enjoyed his meal more than I did . I prefer steak done with simple rub or just salt and pepper. Don't love gravy on my fillet. Vegetables were excellent. nice variety and nicely done. Crisp but still cooked. Squash and mashed potatoes both very good. Desserts were fine, not special but certainly good.

Overall, a pretty good old school experience

If I could give Le Continental 10 stars I would! We went twice in our three night stay In Quebec City this past week! Our server Kevin was awesome, the food was insanely fantastic, and the experience of their table side service is outstanding! You NEED to go here if you're ever in Quebec City!

The food and the service were amazing. My boyfriend and I both ordered their specialty - flambé fillet minion. The meet was cooked from scratch right in front of us. Our waiter kindly shared the ingredients that he used. This was the most tender fillet minion I’ve ever tried.

Exceptional service!!!!! The gentleman serving us, Michele was so on top of things. I’ve never seen someone motor it as much as he was. Our group are all foodies, so we go to restaurants all over the world and Michele was by far the best server we’ve ever experienced. Food-of course was delicious. That just just goes without saying.

Went for 12 year anniversary with my spouse. Steak (Châteaubriand) was disappointing, it was bland and was not well seasoned. Also, it was not grilled with a proper steak crust.

We had this booked on our last night in Quebec City. It was perfect! Food was outstanding, services wonderful. And just fun with the cooking at table side. We had a mushroom dish for appetizer that was amazing. Main course was chateaubriand which was prepared perfectly. Our server had a great sense of humor and just made our evening.

The menu is not fancy: steak is emphasized, although other things are available. While they emphasize steak, they deliver. The food was excellent and the experience of having it prepared at the table made it exceptional.
