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.

Servers were very busy and our service suffered. Main entrees brought out before appetizers. This is the second time in 2 weeks that happened. If it happens again that will be the last time we eat at Continental.

Loved the food and experience. Great Asian fusion dishes. Highly recommend the cheese steak egg roles, steak lettuce wraps and of course the lobster Mac and Cheese.

The three females hostesses made my friend and I extremely uncomfortable by giving us dirty looks and being judge mental. Other than that, service was great.

We were a little disappointed with our table at first as we had reservations for outdoor dining but were seated indoors on the “patio”. It all worked out well as it was not very crowded and it was cooler.
Mark was a good waiter, very personable and knowledgeable of the menu. He did not rush us which we appreciated. The food was very good not only in taste but for a great selection.
We enjoyed celebrating our 52nd wedding anniversary here.

Had a very nice dinner on the rooftop patio. Highlights: Lobster mac n cheese, calamari salad, brussel sprouts and the philly cheese steak egg rolls. Fun drinks and the atmosphere on the roof is casual and fun. Service was a little slow at first (we were sitting for quite some time before we had someone take our drink order) but our waiter was really friendly and the food all came out in a reasonable timeafter the initial wait. Would definitely return! Only negative is the bathrooms and the one way mirror situation (esp in the men's room) is really pretty gross and outdated - you need to get rid of that Continental.

We really enjoyed our visit. Great food and fun atmosphere. One of the nicest restaurant setups I’ve seen. I highly recommend the bing bread and the chicken tikka masala. We wish the Kalbi beef came with rice, but we just ordered a side order when we realized it didn’t. I highly recommend this restaurant. I just wish it was closer to my house!

Sat on rooftop outside. Fabulous setting- we had our own little space for 7 people. Michael was our server and bartender. He did a fabulous job keeping us in expertly poured drinks and good food choices. Even supplied the requisite dessert with a 21st birthday candle. Excellent time!!!

We had a wonderful dinner, and Richard was a fabulous server!

The only downside was that when I requested outdoor seating, I assumed we would be seated on the patio upstairs on the rooftop. Instead, we were outside near the sidewalk in the private dining tables, which was fine, but we would have preferred to be upstairs.

Had a great time! Really liked the vibe & food was great, though I didn't care to pay twice as much for a cheap bottle of wine. Otherwise, fantastic for a late night, casual dinner.

Continental Midtown used to be our go to spot in Philly. Unfortunately the new menu does not include most of our favorites (Shoe String Fries, Sea Bass, tuna tartare). They just reopened so I hope they re-evaluate the new menu. Also , they’ve always been a loud restaurant, but the music seemed exceptionally loud this time. In all fairness all four of us in the party are soft spoken, but having to yell to be heard got pretty annoying after awhile. We will likely give the restaurant another shot in few months, but if this their new normal, we’ll be on the look out for a new favorite.

It was great to be back at such a wonderful place! The food was very good; the tuna tartare springs rolls went down so quickly that we had to order another plate of them.
Cathy, the manager was wonderful and kind. The skewers were delicious :-) TY!
Isiah, our server, was polite & efficient and generous w/ removing a drink from our bill (it was too strong for me).
We will definitely be back. Love the retro vibe of the new outdoor seating structures.

Celebrated a milestone with family and enjoyed a wonderful happy hour on the rooftop, tucked away privately in the corner of a balcony. Craft cocktails were delicious, appetizers were tasty, and the atmosphere was very unique for being in the city.
