Terrible experience. We arrived early for our reservation and were told they were backed up we might be sat after our reservation time. People were walking in left and right getting sat before us, a couple even walked in way after us and had the same reservation time as us and they were seated directly upon entry. This is not a bad review because we had to wait slightly for our table, but because the workers were rude in the process. Our food was not up to par with the prices and our drinks took very long. Service is no where near pleasant (especially the front desk workers). We will not be returning to dine here
The worst dining experience since living in Philadelphia for over 20 years. I dine out frequently. Covid did change that for a while. But now back to enjoying all of Philadelphia dining experiences. I had guests in town. I reserved outdoor dining. The space they put me and my guests was open and freezing. The heating vent was not working. They moved us to a new outdoor table after heating vent was working but still freezing. The space had large windows and the plexiglass had not arrived yet. As we sat there a random person put a bag in our space and ran away. We called manager who called the police. They were going up move us to indoor space. After waiting 1 hour at there entrance we left. I will never go there again. The manager lied. They were over booked and many people were waiting indefinitely for there tables.
We were seated on the roof and had requested indoor dining. The door was open and we asked for it to be closed and were told they would close it and they did not close the door after multiple requests. It was very cold and windy inside the patio on the roof inside with the doors opened and ruined the meal. The tuna tar tar spring rolls for $14 were the smallest I have ever seen in my life, served without spicy Mayo as listed. Very disappointed. Have been to the Continental many times in the past but the value has gone down a lot and will likely not return. Not worth the price.
Unique atmosphere, cool vibe, great service and food!
Great food, great service
We enjoyed the fried chicken, crispy brussel sprouts, shrimp pad Thai, and soft serve cones. The cocktails were also great and the service was exceptional. I wished for greater choice in our seating location, but all in all it was a great date night. Thanks!
After 20 years of Loyal commitment to Continental Restaurants we were disappointed.
Service was great but my favorite Calamari Salad was half size and not as tasty. Lettuce Wraps with Pork were not as good as Wraps with Chicken.
First Time Disappointed with Food & Menu.
May try in the future!
Kelly was just amazing. Love her and Continental’s new menu!
Always love coming here . Nice ambience with good food and drinks ! I did notice they changed the continental salad that I always use to get a little bit, but it still was good . We had a very nice waiter who was very attentive. And we decided to get a dessert and that was great as well , Chocolate-Speculoos . The waiter even added sparklers as we were celebrating that night .
Food was somewhere between poor and mediocre. Won’t be back.
The food and drinks were terrible.
I was present for my reservation but later had to dispute with open table because the restaurant said we did not show. The menu is consolidated now, very few options and very few options for dietary restricted people.
Team dinner. Awesome.
Consistently good. Great menu options. Nice place to take kids or even dine alone. Great value and good establishment. Will be back!
Menu disappointedly smaller and several go to items not available.
Love the new outdoor space! Food excellent as always. Plenty of choices for adults and kids. My 4-year-old loved the cheesesteak eggrolls and short rib skewers.
The new menu is cool, I strongly suggest targeting the young working professional with the music (the volume was low & it was similar to elevator/super market music) get with the times.
Great to have The Continental open again - new menu - great food. We sat outside - our waitress was terrific. The only thing I have to say is bring back the shoestring fries!
Fantastic to be back. Service was great!! So happy to be back here!!
We had a very nice dinner. It was their first night open since Covid-19 shut them down. The menu has changed. Missed a few of the old ones but everything was good.
Amazing, as always.
Had the BEST lemon drop martinis
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!
Had drinks and apps for friends who were visiting Philly. I needed to charge my phone and they sat us at a table with an outlet. Perfect experience. The Brussels sprouts, cheesesteak egg rolls, and the Astronaut drink are my favorites.
I didnt like the small tables on rooftop and the breaded french toast
FRENCH ONION DUMPLINGS....NEED I SAY MORE??????????
This is a great place if you are looking for somewhere modern and fun. Great food and great atmosphere.
Everything was amazing, especially the ambiance! Food was great! Nice simple but fulfilling dishes, I can’t wait to go back!
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.
Clean conscious. Great fun vibes. Great service.
I enjoyed their decor and diverse menu, found nice vegetarian options for me
if you like flavor then hell the quesadilla taste like a hotdog
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.
Loved sitting on the upper level outside. They have plenty of heaters so you are very comfortable
They did a good job with the COVID restrictions. The food was good as always.
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."
Great experience! The service was awesome and entertaining! I will visit again. Social distancing was appropriate and truly enjoyable!
