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.

I came here for brunch with a friend and my one year old. We were one of the first tables and received great service from Joe! Food was great, and everyone we encountered was very accommodating to my one year old. I know children in the restaurant industry can be a hassle sometimes so I appreciated it immensely.

Had a drink during happy hour at the bar before sitting at the table (basket chairs upstairs). This plays passes the vibe check for sure. Delicious food (crispy brussel sprouts, salmon poke bowl and BBQ chicken quesadilla)

Though we were one of the youngest patrons, my wife and I enjoyed our experience. We sat on the second floor looking down on the crowd below in suspended wicker chairs - very comfortable and cool! The alcohol was a little pricey but the menu was reasonable with many middle sized plates available to share or consume for yourself. We split the edamame and roasted carrots. The edamame was fresh and the carrots were amazing having a mild white sauce that was not overpowering. For our entree, my wife had the tuna rare over a bed of mushroom risotto which she enjoyed. I had the chicken lettuce wraps and ricotta meatballs. I did not realize the Continental gives you 5-meatballs and the lettuce wraps were abundant. Both dishes were fantastic. Thank goodness we walked around Rittenhouse Square a few times as the meal was larger than expected. We had a great time and a worthwhile meal.

Such a wonderful experience! The atmosphere of the restaurant was so lovely and the food was delicious. Our waitress was super kind and helpful and it was an overall great experience.Only comment I can make is that we had a reservation and got there in time, yet still waited for around 15-20 minutes for our table.

Their food is consistently good. I wish they still had the Mexican Chopped Salad on their menu but their other salad choices are equally as yummy.

Our server was great and the ambiance of the interior is cool and retro, but the food (and this is my second time visiting this location) was not worth the second attempt of trying this place.

Other people we were dining with had much better experiences previously. The food was adequate. But did not live up to the hype. I’d like to try it again - maybe it was an off day.

Service, atmosphere and food is excellent. Our server Dani was the best; I’ll be sure to request him every time I visit. If you’re a meat eater try the cheesesteak egg rolls! I also had the salmon sashimi poke bowl and that was really good. I’ll be back to try the desserts.

Celebrated my granddaughters birthday. Noticed another birthday celebrated with a loud song sung by multiple staff but my granddaughter had one person sing barely audible with a small dollop of ice cream and a candle that didn’t stay lit. It was very disappointing. Food was mediocre and over priced. Will not return.

Food and service were excellent. Price was good for center city. The only thing preventing a five is the Tootsie and Bloody Mary were only average, but the other drinks were spot on.

We had about 5 people, and we were sitting in one of the booths in the lower floor. The booths were comfortable and looked cool, but not designed with logistics in mind — the servers often had to reach over you to deliver plates or retrieve them because they obviously can’t walk around the table for better access.

Still, we had a great time, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was great!
