Three full stories of fun await you at the Continental Mid-town. Whether you’re relaxing in the lounge, swinging in a basket chair on the jet-set mezzanine or taking in the night along the airy rooftop patio, it’s a total reprieve from the expected. The mouth-watering menu features bold and eclectic flavors, from signature jumbo lump crab pad thai and Szechuan shoestring fries to playful spins like cheesesteak eggrolls and French onion soup dumplings. Expertly mixed pop and retro cocktails ensure there’s something for everyone to sip on, no matter the occasion.

We wanted to celebrate our daughter's new job and Continental Midtown was the perfect spot. The cool cocktails, creative food and swanky 60's decor were just right. We shared several plates of different items. The french onion soup balls were amazing. The cheesesteak egg rolls were big and meaty. And the beef bulgogi bowl was delicious but not very big. The lettuce wraps were good but could have been spicier.
Our server was wonderful too; attentive but not bothersome.
We sat upstairs where its a little darker and better view of the amazing chandelier!

Always recommend the Continental Midtown to all my out of town friends. The server was able to guide me between two options. I usually get the Calamari Salad as my entree but was looking at the turkey burger. She explained she was pescatarian but says lots of people order it. Was up to my expectations! Love this place.

The staff at the Continental did a great job amid the COVID 19 rules. The made us feel welcome and safe. Understandably so, their menu was limited which dampened the evening a little but the food we ordered was very tasty.

Great time on the roof. Dani was fantastic. Food was as good as I remembered. The roof was lovely and very distant. They had great social distancing practices in place.

The ambiance was great, particular during COVID. But the food was subpar. I would’ve preferred actually going to a cheap diner. I was upset that I brought my out of town guests to this establishment and was just expecting more from a Stephen Starr restaurant which I have always enjoyed and recommended to others.

This was a great night out. First time back in Philly since the quarantine. We felt very comfortable, and it was clear that the restaurant was taking all the necessary precautions. Glad to get back to "normal."

Haven't been here in years but glad I came back. The place has such a cool design and we got lucky and sat at one of the tables with the swinging chairs. The food was better than I remember and the French Onion Soup Dumplings were heaven! Highly recommend.

What a lovely rooftop experience during COVID-19. They have the protocols down with temp checks, signage, social distancing, and mask usage. The food was amazing, as always. Oliver (if I'm remembering right) was our server and was super friendly. He didn't make us feel rushed, so we enjoyed a leisurely brunch. We had the $95 Moet which made everything feel extra special. Thank you!

The food was amazing! One of the best veggie burgers I have ever had. There were heating lamps outside which was nice since it was later at night and chilly. Would for sure go back again!
