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 sat outside which was good for covid so that’s why ambiance and service were not a 5 but it was great!

This is a tried/true spot. My only complaint was waiting an inordinate time for my food. Others at my table nearly finished their dinner salad before my chicken skewers arrived.

Food was kinda gross, weird combinations, trying to incorporate some asian fusion into dishes. Got the chicken kebabs, shrimp kebabs, cheesesteak egg rolls, french onion dumplings. Dumpling were great taste wise but just looked gross, shrimp looked and tasted gross, chicken was delicious but the portion was tiny, and nothing wrong w the egg rolls. We sat upstairs and for some reason there was an odd smell, like an indoor swimming pool or something. Overall weird experience.

I love everything about this restaurant. I am a frequent customer and love the rooftop atmosphere. Everyone has always been so super nice upon arrival i.e. host and waiters
This Saturday night was a little different. Upon arriving to the restaurant I waited about 10 minutes to be shown to my seat even though I had a reservation and then when it was time to go to my seat the host asked me pretty much if I knew where I was going in a very unfriendly tone. Which I replied yes and headed to seat myself and my guest.
The waiter that we had, was another just as bad. I’m not sure what his name was but he’s pretty much going bald. This guy was absolutely rude and unaccommodating. I certainly felt unwelcome as soon as I sat down and was greeted another 10 mins later with a “what’s up” by him. The food was super delayed it’s OK them forever to come and get our drink orders and I said down without water for quite some time as we waited more time to even place the order. If this is the level of service you guys offer then I probably won’t be coming back to your restaurant. Respectfully.

My apologies for choppy message I’m currently in the car driving but didn’t want to get this out when I received this email regarding the review.

An evening on the roof - food was good and the place was crowded - a little short on wait staff but a very worthwhile and fun visit.

this was the first time we had eaten at continental in probably 10 years. the service was excellent. food was very good but portions are much smaller than they used to be and the menu also seems smaller than what we remembered. the decor and building have also started showing their age. first floor was crowded and loud. we had our kids with us, so we ate on the second floor which only had a few tables of diners and was significantly quieter.

Service was INCREDIBLE. Our waitress was so sweet - never felt like she was rushing us or minded that we sat for a while but also didn’t completely ignore us. Drinks and food were fabulous! The upstairs patio is lovely too - perfect outdoor vibe!!

Menu was very limited. There wasn't any happy hour on the day we went-told last minute. (but I was told if I wanted happy hour items I needed to go to the bar) even though my party was sitting at the table

Felt rushed to order and given the check when dessert menu wasn't even offered.
The food that was offered on the minimalistic menu wasn't bad. Just had a problem with the service overall

The outdoor setting was fabulous!
The food, all but the lettuce wraps was superb!
Pad thi, chicken, Brussels stellar!
Service, hummmm, struggled to keep drinks flowing, water on table, napkins, simple things that should be automatically done with the dollars spent .
I think for the $ spent , the value is ?

Our visit to the Continental was not our first, but certainly our most enjoyable. Our server was excellent and the tuna tostadas were phenomenal. Something new - certainly well worth keeping ... up on the balcony overseeing the bustle below as a great location - quite quiet for a place so busy.
