Excellent dining experience from food, cocktails, wine and service!
We wanted to go to a nice Naples restaurant for Father's Day late lunch and were happy with our choice. The lunch menu included small plates as well as steaks and specials with two courses. Seating was in two sections, with inner more closed-off area as well as a more open-to-outdoors cafe style area. Service was excellent, and timing of food delivery was perfect. Food preparation was masterful and taste was delicious.
We are frequent diners of The Continental and on this occasion had a friend visiting from Michigan. No one in our party was disappointed in their meal. Simply outstanding. Food, wine, cocktails and dessert were wonderful.
Wonderful food and great staff!
The ambiance is so beautiful outdoors but we chose indoors for b/c it was 85* outside. Indoors is not nearly as nice and very dark. The service was just ok. The food was just ok and for the price I expected Wow. The wine glasses had lots of water marks. This place is ok but very very expensive. For this price i expect sparkling wine glasses and outstanding food and service.
We went twice on our last visit to Naples. The restaurant week selection was outstanding. The steak and lobster all Day Wednesday is a deal. Service is always great. We had Britain on Saturday night . Servers always attentive. Sat near the grill on Wednesday and watched how hard working the entire staff is.
The Continental is always on our short list when we come down.
Went for sizzle restaurant week. By the time you add sides and pay high prices for alcohol - too expensive.
We went ordered from the special menu for Restaurant Week. It was great value, perhaps the best of all restaurants who participated. We normally love this place however, on this night there were several glitches. Service was very slow, the steak for one of our party was tough, the temperature of the room was inconsistent. We will go back but there were misses here.
Hands down best dining experience we’ve had in Naples in 6 years. Food, service, overall vibe. Really amazing food and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly, from the top down! Great leadership and hospitality.
We were looking forward to an excellent meal, but were disappointed. Filet was extremely tough, strips weren't any better. Sides were extra, and were OK. Desert was the best performer. Won't be back.
Went for restaurant week and the value was very good. Food and service were excellent. Very attentive without being overbearing.
We were there with another couple celebrating our anniversaries. The meal was great but our drinks were not. I had a ketel one dirty martini and could barely taste the vodka. My husband had a Cosmo that was warm when it was served. Marco was our server and he was great and very knowledgeable
This is by far my favorite restaurant in Naples. Their ambiance is so romantic and inviting. The food is delicious! I always have the filet mignon which is outstanding.
A group of 5 were there this past Saturday. Food was great! We took advantage of restaurant week. Maybe there weren't enough servers and it seemed like everything took a long time to get to us. It was very hot and we were sat right by the kitchen. I would like to go back but probably in December or January. It'll be cooler. A suggestion, if a restaurant has the open doors policy, you will need some sort of ceiling fans to keep the air circulated. We really were sweating profusely. Maybe that's why we kind of wanted to rush our night. But again, the meal was delicious.
It was beyond hot in the restaurant
It’s 90 degree and having the doors open for anyone sitting inside is crazy.
Plus we were never offered a birthday dessert
The food was delicious but how uncomfortable we were offset the amazing dinner
First time there, party of 4. Reservations for 5:00pm, seated right away, service was prompt. Our server Britten was excellent from start to finish. Wife and mother-in-law loved the martinis. Can’t mess up Tito’s on the rock so I was satisfied with my drink.
Steak may be the best steak in town. Our experience was so positive this will likely become our new place for steak. We had never gone to Continental because we were still upset that Handsome Harry’s had closed. Long time to hold a grudge, I know. What a mistake on my part. Everything was as we expect dining in Naples to be.
We went during restaurant week with friends. The food, service and ambiance were great. Generous, delicious, nice bottle of red too.
We had dinner at The Continental this past week for Sizzle Week which was a very good value...the service
was very good however we sat in the room with the Bull on the wall and it is a very nice setting but at the next table there was a young couple with a baby that cried during our dinner and that was very disturbing..
One does not expect very young children to be at a restaurant like the Continental and it was disturbing.
We have always enjoyed Continental in the past. We went Tuesday evening during Restaurant week with Reservations. Restaurant was not full, there was not enough help so service was very slow. We ordered Cocktails; the tonic in the gin & tonic was flat and the Vodka martini was awful, we sent both back and they were taken off Bill. The air conditioning must not have been working properly so it was very hot. A very disappointing evening.
Everything was excellent!
Service was slow at the start but improved. I had the branzino, which was dry. The sides and dessert were delicious.
Always a great place for lunch, dinner, or just a drink at the bar.
The music outside was very nice. Good energy level and not too loud. We ordered off the 'sizzle' week menu and were excited to try this spot, however the food was just okay.
I was extremely hot inside. Not air conditioned no fans. We waited an hour for someone to come to our table. The food was good. They did take 50 % off the bill which was very nice of them
The Continental does a very good job. I like the openness of the restaurant and the food is always very well prepared. It is not a quiet restaurant if that’s what you’re looking for, although I think there are a few outside tables that are more private. I like it though and have never had a bad meal there.
Our waiter was absolutely excellent!!! I cannot remember his name however he was awesome and so helpful with the menu and recommendations!!! Absolutely great service and the best filet in town. Will return here many times!
Absolutely amazing experience. We went for restaurant week! We met Brandon as we arrived and he gave us the very interesting history behind the hand crafted cocktails and many of the items on the menu. A highlight is their speciality prohibition legal menu, really delicious refreshing drinks that compliment the menu, especially the Maine harvest. We also had Henry Cogswell Water which was absolutely divine. Our server Bobby was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable. The poutine was out of this world. The entire evening was memorable from the service to the food.
Service and food are always amazing! One of our favorite restaurants!
We did enjoy the early dining menu -the service and food were both excellent.
The food was great bar a cup of fruit that had mould in the raspberries. The staff managed this well and kindly replaced. The ambience was very nice and the steak was excellent as recommended.
Great cocktails at the bar but ambiance only fair. A very good wine list with some great gems. If you like steak, the Snake River Gold is as fine a serving as you will find anywhere; pricey but well worth it. Broccoli is wonderfully prepared.
Flies all over the food. We finally had to box it up to go.
Great food but noisy and fly ridden.
The food and service were excellent. However the prices are pretty high and there were a lot of annoying small flies hovering around the table. The rstaurant needs a totally enclosed air conditioned dining area for those that don't want to dine outside.
Amazing must go restaurant one of the best In Naples
surf and turf was good but the size was on the small side
Great place to have dinner, drinks and enjoy the ambiance.
Food and Service always great. Our server was top notch and helped with our menu selections.
We have been to The Continental a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently very good and they have a great drink menu. We will certainly be back.
Great experience. Tables are a little small for a party of four.
